comment What is focal length and how does it affect my photos?
Does having a great focal length mean shallow depth of field?

comment How do I properly white-balance my photographs when I'm shooting in mixed-lighting environments?
@Jay By mixed lightening, did you mean more than one artificial light sources? In my case I have the tubelight and the day light mixed, can you shed any light on this situation?

@Evan @xpda Can you explain what is _manual neutral (5000K) white balance _, as it is said that this might be helpful for jpeg, I would like to know.

You have been too helpful. Now, understanding the zoom and the focal length is altogether a different topic, for which it is better for me to start a new thread. thanks again.

Thanks Andrew, I guessed you would answer something like that. I have just started the search, won't be purchasing anything till I am too much confident about what I am doing. :)

and what is this "Please avoid extended discussions in comments. Would you like to automatically move this discussion to chat?". I don't want to move anything to chat! That'll scatter the info.

Thanks for being too helpful :hattip: I have also noticed that when I zoom to the maximum in my camera, the f raises to 4.5, automatically. Is that a flaw or can be advantageous in some way?

That means brand name doesn't matter, features do!

I have the 3.1 when there is zero zoom, the maximum is f8.0. I just read your camera supports RAW :) and it looks promising! I would like to ask on what basis do you decide that you'll be purchasing Olympus or some other brand? I ve heard the cannon is the best? And there is Nikon too? Too many choices!

@ElendilTheTall Thanks for following up, the major problem I see with my camera is the lack of dynamic range handling and a lack of the lowest depth of field i.e f 1.0.

@mattdm You said "for example, a fan in motion is very different from clouds", I understand that, but I won't be purchasing two different cameras for fan and clouds, though I may consider purchasing two different lenses for the same. Since I have mentioned all my likings, its also possible that someone might know a kind of camera which handles both. I yet don;t know what is a mirrorless camera, but I'll look in Google. Let me see if there is a compact camera with interchangeable lenses.

Thanks Itai, I'd like to know what do you mean by "fast-response time", in what context? My problem is "high dynamic range" which I have mentioned in the OP. Definitely I need more practice, I ve just started the search for the future camera. Can "HDR" be also solved somehow with this camera?

Thanks for your reply, Andrew. What is the maximum and minimum 'f' in your compact camera, I'll like to know. My camera doesn't have a viewfinder too, I haven't even felt the need to use it till now. If you can change lenses too, then why would you need the DSLR? I'll look up the camera you mentioned, but also the point is, that whatever camera I purchase next, will be final for my rest of the life, unfortunately.

Manual focus is a new thing for me, I'll look up how to do it, thanks. And AFA the burning tubelight is concerned, I have had those shots before, but the background in the photo turns out to be black when I go increasing the shutter speed, that's the problem.

I'll look up what is "circular polarizer", but for that I guess I'll have to purchase new camera body. You said "your camera exposes for the middle", what does that mean? BTW, I always shoot in fully manual.

Thanks Kerri, You said "you need to realize that a big sensor = tiny depth of field" I am not sure if I understand that correctly, all I know is if I have f 1.0, that's going to blur out the background of the subject, is that correct?
