Are you upgrading from an entry level body like the Nikon D5500 or Canon 700D? Looking for more robustness, continuous shooting speed and improved autofocus performance, without breaking the bank? Both Canon, Nikon and Pentax have great cameras in the "advanced amateur" and "semi-pro" categories.

New blog post up http://www.cameraland.co.za/the-art-of-surf-photography In the mystical world under the waves, capturing the spinning and swirling of the watery playground, the photographers of the surf are the artists of the sea.

A different perspective of the world under the waves, surf photography captures the beauty and splendour of the sea, as well as the people who love it.

Good morning Fans! Sometimes it takes just a small group of people to inspire a whole generation. Filmmaker Ryan Deboodt recently filmed in the worlds largest cave, Han Sơn Đoòng in Vietnam, with a GoPro HERO4 Black http://www.cameraland.co.za/gopro-hero4-black-edition. Put your headphones in, watch fullscreen and prepare to be mesmerised by the shear scale and surreal beauty of the cave.

Teaching your children how to take photos when they are young can open up a whole world of creativity for the rest of their lives. Here are a few tips from Digital Photography School on how to do just that.

http://digital-photography-school.com/13-lessons-to-teach-your-child-about-digital-photography/
Today while sorting through some old boxes I found a photo album filled with the first ever photos that I took as a young budding photographer. I was around nine years old when I first started using our family’s film point and shoot camera and I still remember my Dad’s ‘training’ on how to use …

A few months ago I wrote a post on how curiosity is a characteristic of great photographers. I was rereading this post earlier this week and began to ask myself a few questions: How do some people end up more curious than others? Is Curiosity a personality trait or can it be learned? How can …

My family got four sets of passports photos done at Cameraland on Long street and I am really unhappy about the quality. The photos had an unnatural colour balance, the photographer seemed disinterested and unable to take a nice photo of any of us. He didn't know specific passport rules (although implied he did) and as a result our photos were so horrific we had to get them retaken at Orms. It cost a little more, but the quality is infinitely better and they give you double the number of photos (8). Cameraland had a nice cafe and free water, but unless you're thirsty or desperate for ID or passport photos just don't go there.

Hi Dagmar, I was really disheartened to hear about your experience with regard to your passport photographs at Cameraland. Our intention is to remain up to date with information regarding the various passport photographs that we are requested to shoot for clients and quality is of primary concern. Please be assured that I have investigated the incident with the staff members concerned and action has been taken to ensure that we do not have the problem that you have encountered again. Should you wish to visit Cameraland CT in the future, please ask for me so I can personally make amends for this unfortunate incident. Kind Regards Brian Lustig Store manager

I was so clueless when I walked in there not really knowing what I want. Graham was so helpful and did an amazing job block mounting a picture for my anniversary. Great customer service and top job :) thanks guys.

Nobody answering the phone at 16:45 when they said they close at 17:30. Disappointed with the self help photo printing service. Printed white borders on 140 photos (of which I accept responsibility because it is a service conditional on risking bad prints), but help on this would have been appreciated if the person behind the counter was more interested in helping that telling me about how he likes to take photos and he did not really know how the machine works.
