    A Guide to Choose the Perfect Camera for Your Needs

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Everyone could use a new camera, but different cameras are right for different people. You don’t need to shoot family photographs with a high-end digital camera, nor should you attempt to take professional photos with a point-and-shoot camera. Obviously, the right camera for you depends on a number of different factors. Before you visit a camera shop, look through these tips to determine which camera is perfect for your needs. 

    Establish a Budget

    Cameras range from around a hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. To help narrow your search, start by establishing a realistic budget. If you can only afford to spend a couple hundred dollars on a new camera, a point-and-shoot is your best bet. If money isn’t an option and you want the best camera, shop for a D-SLR.  

    Examine Your Lifestyle

    Your lifestyle can be a big indicator as to which camera is right for you. For example, if you love the great outdoors, you should look for a camera that takes exquisite nature shots. If you love people watching downtown, a quick-shooting D-SLR will help you capture all of the most memorable moments. Talk about your lifestyle with your camera salesman to determine which camera (or least which type of camera) is best for you.

    Consider Your Skills

    If you know your way around a camera, you can probably pick up any model and start shooting away. However, if you are not so tech savvy, you may struggle with a high-end D-SLR. Point-and-shoot digital cameras are much easier to use, as you simple point at an object and press the shutter button.

    No matter what type of camera is right for you, you can find it right here at Camera Land NYC. From compact point-and-shoot cameras to high-end D-SLRs, we have the best selection of new cameras to choose from.

    Deal of the Day: Leica Geovid HD 15x56 Yards Model Rangefinder Binocular

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Today's "Deal of the Day" is on a new Leica Geovid HD 15x56 Yards Model Rangefinder Binocular #40044 reduced from $2999.00 to only $2299.99.
    We purchased all of Leica's remaining inventory of this model and are blowing these out.

    Combining the advantages of an extremely accurate laser rangefinder with the optical refinements of a premium binocular from Leica - the Geovid 15x56 HD offers supreme optical quality, multi-purpose functionality, and rugged durability.

    The Geovid is engineered to withstand environmental stresses while delivering optimum performance. The housing is crafted of cast aluminum for its rigidity and light weight. The entire system is purged with dry nitrogen for water and fogproof performance, while the exterior sports a tactile and protective rubberized coating.

    When glassing the horizon, Leica's legendary optical genius becomes apparent. Precision roof prisms with P40 phase-correction coatings and stray-light traps deliver maximum light throughput. Fluoride lens elements deliver sharp crisp imagery that is enhanced beyond the ability to define in words. HDC and AquaDura optical coatings help preserve the integrity of the external lens surfaces. Each ocular features adjustable and removable eye cups with click-stop settings for maximum viewing comfort.

    With all this high-performing optical wonder, it could be easy to forget that the Geovid is more than a binocular - it also provides the ability to accurately range distances from 10-1400 yd with the push of a button while viewing. The internal laser range-finding module of this Geovid provides distance measurements in yards via an internal LED display - it's accurate to ±2 yd @ 800 yd, and the circuitry features an auto-brightness adjustment system to compensate for dynamic lighting conditions.

    Roof Prisms

    Photography Tips for the Summer Months

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Summer is an amazing time to capture breathtaking photographs. Whether you snap pictures of your children playing in the park or you document what New York City looks like bathed in warm sunlight, there are countless opportunities to take great photographs this summer. But with these opportunities come unique challenges. To help you capture the best image every time, here are some summer photography tips from your friends at Camera Land NYC.

    Underexpose Your Sunsets

    At this time of year there are plentiful chances to capture breathtaking sunsets from virtually every vantage point in the city. While shooting sunsets, try to underexpose the photograph a little to preserve the color saturation. Play around with your camera’s auto white balance feature, as it may try to filter out the golden tones of the setting sun.

    Use a Tripod and Cable Release

    Whether you’re taking portraits or nature photographs, a steady tripod will ensure that your pictures come out crisp and clear. A tripod and cable release are crucially important when taking long-distance shots or long exposures, as even the slightest bit of camera shake will destroy the photograph you are trying to take.

    Pan to Catch Fast-Moving Objects

    From air shows and balloon festivals to boating and sporting events, there are plenty of opportunities to take thrilling action shots this summer. But to make sure you get a crisp, clear image, follow the action through the viewfinder and shoot in continuous shooting mode so you don’t miss the action. For fast-moving objects, try a fast shutter speed to make sure your picture is sharp and focused.

    Camera Land NYC has everything you need to take breathtaking photographs this summer. In addition to our large selection of digital cameras and camera accessories, we provide film developing, framing, equipment repairs, and even photography classes.
