DSLR Camera

Do you want to buy a new camera? 

 Let’s try to use DSLR camera, because DSLR camera is no longer luxury goods or can only be owned by the professional photographers and people who have a lot of money. 

Now anyone can have a new DSLR camera. Famous manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Sigma, Sony Alpha, and other brand have been producing entry-level DSLR cameras that are affordable.

 If you are a beginner, I suggest buying a camera type of entry level before buying a high end camera or professional.

Before deciding to buy a new camera, it is very good when you take some time to read the review on the Internet or get information from camara magazines. There are many factors in determining when we want to make a choice to buy a DSLR camera. As we know there are many different brands and types, entry level or advance or professional. I try to give you simple advice before you buy a new camera, which is as follows:

1. The price.
This is the main determining factor will be like the most is the type or brand DSLR camera that will we have later. How sophisticated camera type that you select, the budget we have will be decisive.

2. Usability.
Or do you need to buy a DSLR camera; whether to transmit a new hobby, got the task to be part of the documentation in the Office, streamline the job as a photographer's coverage. If your needs can still be sure with pocket camera surely buying a DSLR camera is not a necessity. Not only will be more inconvenient because you have to learn to master it will also be incriminating because of greater size compare with ordinary point and shoot camera.

3. Specifications. 
If these factors which determine the means you're interested in usability and excess of DSLR cameras are no longer just a point and shot. Do you need a camera with a higher speed because it wanted to deepen photo sports, big resolution or because it will often print with large sizes, higher ISO rating because served to shoot music concerts or performances on stage and others? In fact the third factor above is the most decisive factor of your decision to choose and buy a DSLR camera.

But if I should add a factor which is most often into consideration other then the options are:

4. Resolution.
Many people wrong understanding of the said resolution or megapixels. Most people assume if a megapixel camera has a size larger than the resulting image will be better. But if we only will most print results photos in size of post card, the number of megapixels in the cameras Pocket is sufficient. The size of a large new megapixel is needed if we have to print in a larger size of 60 cm x 40 cm. Or you are a professional who often print in large size of the result cropping photos.

The camera with a resolution of 9 or 12 megapixels is in fact already good.

5. Accessories.
This option can also mean you will invest in a camera brand or already have one particular brand, and decided to complement the needs of the brand.

6. The needs of the future.
Are you are going to use these cameras up to 5 or 6 years? Because technology DSLR camera is a technology that does not quickly obsolete eaten time, unlike for example the technology on the mobile phone quickly changed. Unless there's a springboard new technologies such as when the transition from analog to digital camera.

 Or maybe later when DSLR camera that uses the shutter or shutter is replaced by a mobile phone camera technology with the same quality results. To purchase a new digital camera all decisions in your hands. 

Do you want to switch from a pocket camera to a DSLR camera?
Are you ready?

Android Phone

We are fortunate to live in the 21st century because of the easier to communicate quickly. Communication devices such as mobile phones or smartphones are not just for talking only. The handset that you can use today to send data, photos, e-mail, chat, video calls, games, music and many other great functions. Now you can also use smartphone with Android system. Users are also increasing throughout the world.

Android can not be denied is a very popular operating system for now. Android comes as the toughest rival for IOS developed by Apple and Blackberry OS from RIM. One advantage compared with the Android Operating System IOS and Blackberry are many options available mobile phones that use the Android operating system. In contrast to the IOs that are specific to the iPhone, iPod or iPad from Apple.

So many phones with the Android operating system, sometimes makes us a little confused, where does the Android mobile phone to suit your needs. Because different brands of course, will differ also display the menu of the mobile phone, even though both of them together using Android.

Android Version
Until now the operating system available in a variety of choices version (update), starting from version 1.5 or cupcake, the Android version 1.6 is known as "Donut", Android 2.1 (Eclair), Android 2.2 (Froyo) until the Android 2.3, Gingerbread! For now, when buying a Mobile Android you'll want to choose at least version 2.2  Froyo.

That one of its advantages is that you can install applications to the SD Card External Memory alias. Unlike the previous version of the Android 2.1 to the bottom, where the application can only be installed to phone memory (internal), except for using an application called App2 SD where you can install applications to the SD Card in Android 2.1 to the bottom.

Display Menu (Modification)
If you want to feel the original Android Android aka puree then the best option falls into Google's or Google's Nexus Nexus. For mobile phones of other brands such as Motorola's then display the menu will be different because it has been modified (called Moto Blur), with a menu famous for HTC Sense UI as well as Sony Ericsson has a menu display that has been modified so that it can feel its nuances SE

Just like a laptop or computer, when you will choose an Android phone, do not forget to pay attention to the processor used. For now, buy Mobile Android with a minimum 1GHz processor. This of course is that the performance of the mobile phone could be more optimally and is available in the future if the latest update of the Android Operating System! Do not forget also the RAM memory of the mobile phones (at least 512MB) Graphics Card is also used, so that will add comfort when you play a game in Mobile Android.

3G or 4G
Although in Indonesia 4G connection still very rare, but there's nothing wrong if you prefer Android phones already support 4G connectivity, such as HTC EVO 4G. So when will 4G connection became available widely in Indonesia and your country?

If you use Android phone you will not be too out of date if you get 4G support connectivity in near future.

Are you ready?
