The Advantages of Upgrade Kits


Both professional and amateurs looking to expand their arsenal of equipment can’t deny the advantages of purchasing our camera upgrade kits. When you purchase a camera body, you need to fork out some extra coin on the accessories that you’ll need to start snapping. However, buy a bundle, and you won't have to worry about any of this.

Macro Photography 101
 
This is the art of getting really close to your subjects to produce visually appealing, otherworldly shots. While you can shoot this style of photos on your smartphone, nothing comes close to the quality of pictures produced when utilising a DSLR or Mirrorless camera.
 
 

GoPro's latest HERO Camera's are here!

If you’re into capturing sports, nature, or just life on the go, then you’re going to be into GoPro. The action camera industry has never been the same since their inception, and they just keep raising the bar. Here’s a little insight into two of their newest flagship products.


All New. All Digital.

Way back in 2009, mycamera opened its physical doors with one goal in mind: bringing the latest and greatest in cameras and photography equipment to the photographic community. We set up shop on Roeland Street, in the heart of Cape Town’s ‘camera corridor’, and our dedication soon made us the first port of call for equipment and advice.

 

However, the changing nature of the internet and ecommerce soon meant that people’s shopping habits would change with them. Online stores are open round the clock, have a great deal more stock, and - best of all - you can shop in your PJs without fear of judgement.
The decision to take our business completely online was a no-brainer.

About us

April 16th, 2015 in category Products

Launched in 2009, mycamera rapidly established itself as a leader in the field of

photographic products and accessories. Top-of-the-line cameras combined with

expert advice are two of the cornerstones of our business. We’ve embraced the

digital revolution by creating an online shopping portal where you can browse

and buy everything from DSLRs to drones.

 

 

Since most of our lives happen on the web, we know that that’s probably where

you want to shop too. And why wouldn’t you want to? Our online store offers you 

products from leading brands (Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sigma, Tamron, Lowepro,

GoPro, DJI and more) and they’re all available to you 24/7, from the comfort of

your couch.



Compare the specs of your favourite models, add a camera bag, and even get

an extra memory card while you’re at it. After all, when life is happening right in

front of your lens, you want to make sure you’ve got all the gear to capture it.

Your items will be delivered directly to you (within 3-7 working days in SA major

city areas), so you can go from shopping to shooting as soon as possible.

 

Whether your passion is still photography, shooting groundbreaking video, or

getting a closer look at nature; if you want to capture a moment, mycamera

will help you do it.

The VHS To Digital Conversion

The VHS to Digital Conversion leaping forward with technology.

I am sure most us still have the inevitable VHS videos lying around at home. It could be an old recording, or some home movies shot on an old camera.The trouble is now you will battle to find any available equipment to play or convert these. So what do you do? Some of those tapes are really special, once in a lifetime memories, precious moments captured long ago. You can’t get rid of them, you can’t play them. So what happens to most of these?

I personally have boxes of tapes stored at home, and since these are important you just end up hanging on to them. But actually you are getting nothing out of it considering there is no VHS player available anywhere and even if you did find one it most likely wouldn’t even be able to plug it in to your current TV. Talk about a catch twenty two…


A word on the Fujifilm XE-2

The Fujifilm X-E2 is a new compact system camera that offers a number of significant improvements on its predecessor, the X-E1.


At the heart of the X-E2 is a new 16.3 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor, which has a colour filter array that mimics film grain and no optical low-pass filter for higher resolution images, and a Lens Modulation Optimiser which automatically corrects diffraction blur.
