Most Popular Beginners’ Digital SLRs in use in 2012 Revealed in New Beginners’ Online Digital Photography Course from London Advertising and Fashion Photographer Andreani.
The internet is full of reviews for the latest and newest digital cameras, but it’s often useful to know what the best and most popular digital SLR cameras in use today are amongst beginners.
Fashion and advertising photographer Andreani has revealed that the most popular Digital SLR camera at his new online digital photography course for beginners at http://www.dslrworkshopsonline.com is the Canon 550D (aka Canon Rebel T2i, Canon Kiss X4).
“The most popular beginners’ DSLR amongst my students, in the 12 months between Dec 2011 and Dec 2012, is Canon’s 550D”, confirms Andreani. Launched in 2010, the 18MP DSLR is still widely available for purchase in early 2013, and is available for hire at all of Andreani’s location workshops.
Why is a camera launched a couple of years ago the most popular in use today? “Many people are surprised to hear that I champion equipment that isn’t the very latest offering from camera manufacturers - but in the real world, I find that at least two thirds of my photo course students, the majority of the ‘normal’ beginner photographers out there, use cameras that (i) have a tried and tested reputation and (ii) offer substantial value for money over the very latest new cameras.” explains Andreani.
Andreani has received rave reviews for his location workshops and courses over the last 12 months, with many students turning to the professional photographer of 25 years’ experience for advice on buying new or second hand equipment. In fact, Andreani receives so many requests for advice that he has published a special guide to recommended cameras for beginners on the course website.
“My online digital photography course for beginners is all about putting anyone with a new digital camera in control of their photography, getting them off the dreaded ‘green’ fully automatic mode, and making them the decision makers, not their cameras. The Canon 550D presents the vital information that new photographers need at their fingertips through a clear and simple interface. Build quality is impressive and image quality and value for money is outstanding,” says Andreani.
A firm believer of practicing what he preaches, Andreani makes a point of using exactly the same entry level equipment as his students, in ‘real world’ photographic situations.
“I wanted my online digital photography course for beginners to be the only course beginners would ever need - so I needed to prove to them that each of them can create wonderful, beautiful images using beginner-level equipment. So I’ll go out and shoot landscapes, people and places and family shots, action and architecture, all the normal photographic subjects that most people want to do better, using cameras like the Canon 550D. Then I share the results with my online students through our dedicated student social networking site so that they can see that if I can do it, there’s no reason why they can’t either.”
But what should you do if you haven’t got a Canon 550D? What if you’ve bought another brand, is that a terrible mistake?
“There are many high quality, good value cameras available from the major manufacturers,” explains Andreani, “...to be able to follow my online photography course all you need is a camera (it needn’t be a DSLR) that will allow you to control key functions like the lens aperture, the camera’s shutter speed, and the ISO setting, yourself. An option for manual focus is pretty much vital, too.”
The online digital photography course for beginners is accessible worldwide from devices with modern web browsers, includes options for students to submit work for feedback direct from Andreani, the opportunity to take part in regular web chat sessions with Andreani in person.
