The Best Digital Camera Is The One You Have With You!
Images taken with a digital camera are stored onto a memory card,
unlike the traditional conventional camera where the image is captured
onto film instead and then taken to be developed.
This explains why
digital cameras are popular nowadays: they offer ease and convenience
by allowing you to instantly view your photos. As memory cards are
reusable and can be recorded over an unlimited number of times, people
no longer have to buy and store lots of film.
So digital photography is
not only more convenient and easier to use, it is virtually free after
you invest in the right equipment.
What camera to go for?
The mistake many people make when buying their first digital camera is
that they often end up with something that is beyond their needs.
before you even consider shopping, ask yourself some of the following
key questions: What is your budget and what do you need the camera for?
What kind of photos will you be taking (portraits, macro, sports or
landscapes), and how experienced are you?
Will you mostly stay in auto mode or are you keen on learning on the
art of photography?
Being equipped with the answers to these questions will put you in a
much stronger position when you start shopping.
One of the key features used to market digital cameras is how many
megapixels they have. While this was important many years ago when most
cameras on were at the lower end of the range available today, most of
the digital ones on offer today have at least 5 megapixels, which is
more than adequate.
Megapixels are only important if you intend to print your shots and
cannot afford to compromise on the quality of the image you wish to
‘blow up’ in size. Otherwise, if you only plan on taking normal sized
photos, then 4 megapixels is fine for your needs.
See what everyone else is saying
As with most of your purchases nowadays, go online. There is no better
way to do your research than on the internet.
Visit a photography
enthusiasts’ forum and see what they recommend. Register on the site
and post some questions to ask for advice. You might be inundated with
contrasting replies and many opinions, but it won’t be long before you
notice which ones are the recommended models and brands.
Go compact and stay mobile
The best thing about digital cameras is that many are now
added features that come built-in with mobile phones, giving you more
freedom to take quality photos of your family and friends, and to
easily document and capture your everyday life.
This helps you to avoid
having to carry cumbersome and heavy equipment, allowing you to achieve
the same results all from your mobile phone.
