comment Advice needed for purchasing a new camera or/and lens
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?

@Matt You can say burning bulb or a source of non-natural light. And running fan depicts the motion.

Very helpful, again. One more question: The white balance which I'll set from a white sheet, should be done under sunlight or even the tubelight would do or it doesn't matter?

A news: today morning I was wearing orange coloured clothes and I pointed my camera to my clothes and let it grab the white balance through the setting "custom white balance". Then I took the picture of a sofa lying in shade in the room, the tinge in the photo turned out to be green :) and then I changed the custom white balance to black and the then the same photograph had a greyish shade :) I am yet to figure out which light gives which shade.

OMG, :banghead: All this I was thinking that f22 would have blurred the background :mad: My lowest f is 3.1.

You mean a tripod? I don't have a tripod yet. BTW, f8.0 is too less for blurring the background? Is it? I should have had f22, if possible?
