Your camera may boast “8x zoom”, but most DSLRs do not advertise values like these. So how do they compare? The answer is more complex than you may think.
Instagram’s an awesome app for editing and sharing images. With 40 filters to choose from, you have a lot of options. The problem is, those 40 filters are also annoying to wade through when searching for your favorite filter.

Image stabilization is a feature of some lenses and cameras that avoids the blur of a shaky camera. By counteracting that shake, you can use a slower shutter speed than you normally would, without getting a blurry photo. This is especially useful for night photos, or other situations where slow shutter speed is a necessity.
