Not everyone has the money to be able to buy new cameras every year or two years. And many of us are also quite happy with the cameras that we have. But as cameras get older, there are a couple of tricks that you can do to get the most out of them.
Here are just a few from experience.
Get New Lenses
Or in Fact, Adapt Old Lenses
Clean the Focusing Contacts With Isopropyl Alcohol
New Memory Cards Can Help You Keep Up the Shooting Pace
Flashes and Strobes Can Bring Out Sharpness You Never Knew Was Possible
