Auto Bracketing 101: An Invaluable Camera Feature

Jun 15 2014 02:32 AM | Adam in How-To's and Guides
Auto bracketing is an invaluable tool when you want to be sure to always get the right exposure in challenging situations. It is a feature available on all current Nikon DSLRs save the D3000 series, and it works by taking a set of 2 or more (typically 3 or 5) photos with exposure values shifted slightly above and below what the camera recommends.

How to Clean your DSLR's Sensor at Home

Dust on your DSLR's sensor can be a real nuisance, especially as the number of dust particles build up over time. Every time you change or remove a lens, dust can enter the mirror box and later fall onto the sensor itself. This can lead to visible spots in your images, especially when you stop down to smaller apertures.
