    What are the most important features of a camera?

    I know everyone is looking for something different.

    Whether it's film or digital, the key points should be: ability to change lenses, ability to set manual controls instead of just automatic and the ability to use a flash unit on the camera (not built in)

    A light tight box to keep the film unexposed until the right time, an accurate shutter speed trigger, an accurate method of focusing.

    Your lens is the 'make or break' of a good camera, and what kind of work your lens is being put to. A wide-angle or 'fish-eye' lens is OK for effect, but can be over-used. A 200mm lens for distance work is enough for most - unless you're paparazzi looking for royals to take 'topless' pictures of - and a 58mm 'portrait' lens is a must for taking closer up. A 28mm lens could be useful for architectural work where you need to get the whole front of a building in one shot, but not much use for most purposes except closer-up close-ups, taking 'pack shots' for instance, or models (not the likes of Lena Hart or Anna Schilling, although experiment is always a good thing).
    If you're a sports photographer it always helps to have a long lens that fills a frame with the action - two footballers colliding near the goalmouth, an outfielder who's caught out the batsman. It's then that close-ups of facial expressions pay dividends, and fill the photographer's wallet!

    According to my point of view, auto focus is the most important feature of a camera. As we keep on working with it, we come to know that auto focus is usually better than manual. Very professional photographers prefer to keep their cameras on auto focus.

      Still comes down to the quality of your lens, don't it.
