How To Choose A Digital Camera

by donjd2

This is not an easy question to answer given the wide range of digital cameras available in the market today. Each camera comes with its own individual features like image resolution, storage capacity, lens power etc. So, what should the buyer look for in the camera?

1. Image Quality

Image quality and trueness of colors need to be studied carefully. In fact, one should spend considerable time looking at images generated by different cameras before taking a decision. These images should not be the retouched images but fresh shots.

2. Resolution

Resolution is another major requirement. The quality of a camera is directly proportional to the resolution of the images. For example, a 3 megapixels (MP) camera outputs images that are anywhere from 1 to 2 MB in size while a 7 MP camera outputs images that are 4 to 5 MB in size. If you are a professional photographer then you should go for high pixel cameras; beginners can look at low or mid-end cameras. If you plan on blowing up a whole bunch of pictures, then it’s important to get a higher megapixel camera. But if you just collect snapshots of your family, then you only need a lower pixel camera.

3. Weight

You should also not forget the camera weight. A large and heavier camera is difficult to carry. It is also more difficult to keep it still when shooting. You should therefore select a camera that you can focus with ease. If you want a camera for holiday pictures and traveling, it might be a good idea to get a camera that can fit in your pocket. That way, it’s easier to carry, and you’ll be less likely to lose it or have it stolen.

4. Capacity

The number of images a camera can take before you download them on to your computer may not be a problem if you are shooting near your computer. Of course, it does matter if you are shooting outdoors in that case you should choose a camera that will store enough images. You should therefore go for large memory cards or several small memory cards. This will allow you the luxury of long photo shoots. Most cameras come with a small memory card, and you will probably want to buy a bigger one. Keep this in mind when you’re choosing your camera, and add to the price of the camera what an extra memory card would cost.

5. Lens Quality

Mid range cameras have a single lens with or without zoom facility. For shooting objects from a close range (around less than 1.5 feet) choose a camera with a macro option. High-end cameras, that are basically 35mm. SLR (Single Lens Reflex)) cameras, come with changeable lenses but can cost quite a lot. They are more useful for professional photographers. Beginners need not burn money on them.
