Best Entry Level Digital SLR Cameras

Standard

If you’re a serious photography enthusiast chances are that you would be looking for a DSLR to satisfy your inner creative urge. In fact a compact Point & Shoot will always be a continuous source for dissatisfaction whenever you want to have more manual controls over the shots. However there is one major caveat and that is DSLRs can be cumbersome, lens hungry and downright more confusing to operate than compact Point & Shoot cameras. Okay, I think I have already lost some of my readers there. So without much further ado let’s delve into some of the best entry level DSLR cameras that are out there in the market.If you’re looking for an entry level DSLR then chances are that the following three brands – Nikon, Canon and Sony will be at the top of your choices. Out of these three, Nikon and Canon enjoy the lion’s share of the consumer DSLR market. So I have taken the liberty to discuss five models, two each from Nikon (D3200 & D3100) and Canon (550D & 1100D) and one from Sony (SLT-A35K), in this discussion about the best five entry level DSLR cameras currently available.1. Sensor type and MegapixelsEach of these camera sensors have different effective megapixels. D3100 has a 14.2, D3200 has 24.2 (launched with the D800/D800 E this one has one of the largest effective megapixels count for an entry level DSLR), the 550D has 18.0, the 1100D has 12.20 and the Sony SLT-A35K has 16.2 megapixels.

Considering there is a fetish for megapixels, the Nikon D3200 wins this race handsomely.2. Auto-Focusing points and AF systemThe D3100 has an 11 AF system, same as the D3200 and which is 2 points more than the 550D and the 1100D. However the Sony SLT-A35K wins the race hands down with its wide area 15 point AF system.The D3100 was one of the first few DSLRs to have continuous AF during video mode. Its cousin the D3200 also have that. Both the 1100D and the 550D in spite of being great cameras does not have continuous AF in the movie mode making the Nikon models a slightly better proposition in terms of video shooting. Having said that continuous AF in entry level models leaves a kind of wish-not-granted feeling. They are never quite there, except in the case of the Sony SLT-A35K. One can look into a semi-professional or even a professional body for better AF in movie mode.3. ViewfinderThe D3100 has a 95% viewfinder coverage which is the same as it’s cousin on steroids the D3200. Incidentally this is the same as the 550D and the 1100D. The Sony on the other hand gives a 100% field of view coverage and wins this leg of the comparison handsomely.4. Pentamirror or pentaprism or even translucent?Comparatively translucent technology is one in which the mirror does not shift up and down when the images are taken. Out of all the light the lens receives, 70% is absorbed and the remaining 30% is bounced off to the OVF meaning the mirror never has to move when taking images. This has several advantages, faster AF when shooting still or videos, better phase detection, faster continuous shooting speeds (as the mirror does not have to readjust after taking the shot) and of course less camera shake as nothing is moving inside.Whether one wants to go for a pentamirror or a pentaprism or even a translucent technology is completely up to personal choice.5. LCD screenA 3″ LCD monitor with 230,000 dots resolution is what one will get with the D3100. Comparatively the D3200 has a 3″ but 921,000 dots resolution with 100% frame coverage. The 550D has a slightly sharper 3″ monitor with 1024,000 dots resolution and the 1100D has a 2.7″ LCD screen with 230,000 dots resolution only. The SLT-A35K has a 3″ LCD monitor with 921,600 dots and 100% coverage. The 550Dwins this round with its slightly sharper display.6. Image processingThe D3100 has Nikon’s EXPEED 2 image processing system while the upgraded D3200 has the latest EXPEED 3 version from Nikon. The slightly older 550D has Canon’s older DIGIC 4 image processing system. At the heart of the Sony SLT-A35K is the BIONZ™ Processor which gives its outstanding color saturation and image quality.

7. ISOThe Sony SLT-A35K has an ISO range of 100 to 12,800. The 1100D goes from 100 to 3200 while the 550D is slightly better at 100-6400. The D3200 has an ISO range of 200 – 6400 which can be extended to 12800 and the D3100 is sensitive at 100 to 3200 which can further be extended to 12800.8. Video modesThe 1100D has a movie mode (unlike its predecessor the 1000D) but it shoots only 720p in at either 25 or 30fps. Comparatively the 550D has a better video shooting performance capturing in full HD 1080p and in 24fps / 25fps / 30fps. The D3100 has a full HD movie recording feature as well. The D3200 also capture full HD in 30p/25p/24p. The Sony SLT-A35K captures full HD in both AVCHD and MP4 formats in 25 fps.9. PriceThe D3100 retails at a price of $650 compared to the D3200 which is slightly pricier at $700. Compared to the Nikon models the Canon 550D retails at $700 which makes it slightly disadvantageous to the D3200 which is similarly priced. The 1100D is probably the cheapest of the lot which can be picked up on eBay for under $450. The Sony SLT-A35K is available for a street price of $600.

How to Date a Younger Man? Here Are the Keys Which You Must Know in Order to Date a Younger Man

Standard

If you are considering having a romance with a younger man, then it could be the best move you can make! Yes, younger men do have plenty to offer you so whether you plan to just have a fling or intend to find a true love that lasts a life time; get some tips that teaches you how to date a younger man. Zip those lips!
It could be that you have a couple of break-ups, past relationships and even a divorce under your belt, but your new hot and young lover needn’t hear all about those things in the beginning. Neither does he have to know how your ex cheated on you. Enjoy the present and concentrate on having fun with this new guy. Turn a deaf ear to criticism
The fact that you are dating a younger man is bound to be a “hot” topic for gossip and criticism. Don’t let this bother you in the least. Ignore them and enjoy the relationship. You should realize that you cannot let live a life based on what others think or say. Be ready for change
When you go out with your new young date, be ready to be shocked! As you get older it is easy to fall into a set routine. The new guy is bound to take you to new places and make you enjoy certain sports, food and activities you did not even know about. Latch on to him and enjoy the ride! Don’t let him be intimidated by you
The fact that you are older, more successful and have an established career should not be the cause of any kind of a rift between the two of you. It is only natural that being older you are more independent. Put him at ease and don’t throw your success in his face. Be confident of your sexuality
Make him forget about the age difference between you. Remember that you have both reached your sexual peak and are in your prime. Prove to him that you are as attractive and exciting than any other woman. Take care of your looks
Don’t let your self go sloppy and overweight. This would never pull in the younger guys. Make sure you are in shape and wear the right type of clothes that accentuate your beauty. Always have shining clean hair, and well manicured hands and feet. Guys are turned on by a well dressed attractive woman no matter what her age is. Be social
You won’t get a younger man if you hang about the “square” old fashioned places. You don’t have to dress “young” and get on to roller blades to get your guy. All you have to do is to look approachable and stylish whether it is at the bar or at the pool.

Offshore Online Brokerage Accounts – Are They Safe?

Standard

These days, we are all accustomed to doing almost everything online. There cannot be too many of us left who are nervous about using a credit card online, for example. Doing business online is a way to save time, money and headaches. Investing through online brokerage accounts promises much the same benefits.However, when it comes to investing offshore, borders still pose a significant psychological barrier. There is no longer any real need to have your online brokerage account in the same country you live in, but it seems investors are still reticent about opening brokerage accounts in foreign countries.An increasing number of financial service providers are offering cross-border online investment services. This trend has caught on more in Europe than in North America, with larger online brokerages like Saxo Bank and Swissquote offering services specifically tailored to investors from outside their home countries.However North American investors are also becoming more adventurous, opening more and more accounts with foreign banks and brokerages. Such accounts may be opened as individual US citizens or, more commonly, through offshore corporations or trust structures designed to provide an additional level of privacy. However, the main reason for accessing these international markets is to benefit from more profitable cross-border investment opportunities, and diversify risk by spreading their portfolios across different institutions in different base currencies.These sophisticated investors have potential access not just to a wider range of investment opportunities –  but to simplicity, tax savings, and greater control over their portfolios.  There is also the opportunity to save money, by gaining access through discount brokerage models to exchanges that would otherwise have to be traded by telephone through far-away correspondent brokerages. The current economic climate means a lot of investors love the idea of being able to keep a much closer eagle eye on their internationally-diversified portfolios. But, there remains a concern. Is investing through online offshore brokerage accounts safe?Are Offshore Online Bank and Brokerage Accounts Safe?In short, the answer is yes, provided you apply normal common sense precautions. The internet allows you to buy and sell foreign securities through overseas brokerage accounts with just as much ease and security as paying your home electricity bill – and in many cases, much greater security.The first of these precautions is to invest via a reputable firm.  Do some due diligence on the company behind the service. Just as you should at home (but many people don’t) check references, make sure the broker is registered and in good standing with the relevant regulators, speak with them in person and find out what experience they have. You should also enquire about the security arrangements on their site, and what protection they offer in the case of DDOS and other types of hack attacks. Many offshore brokerages are actually fully licensed banks, which makes them more secure and makes due diligence easier.Once you have decided where to open your brokerage account, it is important that you you’re your own precautions to ensure that nobody else will be able to access your account without your permission.  Make sure that your security software, like anti-virus and firewalls, are properly installed, functioning and up to date. Consider using an encrypted VPN solution, especially if you are partial to doing your trading from a laptop connected via wifi, which is notoriously insecure. Also remember that just like those anti-phishing warnings from online banking at home, offshore brokerages will not email asking for you to confirm your details. If you receive any correspondence via email, confirm it by phoning the company directly before clicking on any links or taking any action. Try to get to know a single executive in the brokerage who will recognize your voice over the telephone.What Services Do You Need?Just like at home, overseas investing services can vary wildly in terms of costs and features. Even within the same brokerage, there are often different packages available.  Fees may differ significantly depending what features, information and access you request.If you are considering investing in European bonds, unit trusts, ISAs or funds then you probably will not need access to the type of ‘offshore day trading’ account that permits you to buy and sell individual stocks in real time. A so-called ‘fund supermarket’ type account offered by a European bank would suit you in this case. But be sure to check which products of which fund managers are available, and whether the broker is prepared to negotiate fees or rebate  commissions they receive from fund managers (many will, especially on larger amounts, but only if you ask them)Other banks and brokerages will offer discretionary management of your portfolio. This is suitable for investors who don’t want to have to watch their accounts every day, and who are looking for more of a Swiss-style ‘private banking’ feel in their brokerage. Having  access to quality investment advice is of great importance in this case – so ask what kind of management skills the bank has access to in-house. Larger banks have more expertise, but they may be busy chasing bigger fish. Smaller boutique private banks and investment managers often offer a much higher level of personal service.In turn these various institutions will often target different types of investor. The more questions you ask your broker or banker before you get started, the more benefits you will obtain from the account you finally choose. It’s called KYB (“Know Your Banker”) and is equally important to investors as KYC (“Know Your Customer”) is to bankers.If you take the time to do your homework, investing offshore and online is not only safe but it can be very profitable, cutting costs, diversifying risk, and taking charge of your own future. Are you ready for the challenge?
