Camera Requirments

For this class, you will need an

  • SLR digital camera capable of FULL manual operation (independent aperture & shutter speed adjustments) & can produce Raw or Tiff files or both (Jpegs are NOT acceptable.) A hand-held light meter is preferred over through the lens metering (TTL) systems. This is not to say that the camera cannot have a TTL metering system but hand held metering allows the photographer to more easily make decisions relating to exposure than with a TTL system. EACH STUDENT MUST HAVE EITHER A HAND HELD METER OR A TTL METERING SYSTEM IN THE CAMERA (or both.)
  • A tripod is STRONGLY recommended.

Below, are listed new digital cameras appropriate for class. Listed below as well are sources for those items.
