Buying a Digital Camera

Jun 29, 2008
Are you keeping all those photo albums in order? You know that you'll want to drag them all out down the road when your little one is all grown up. What am I talking about? I drag them out now and my daughter is only seven. There's just something about those wonderful moments that we can't have back. Once we've experienced them, they're gone. But at least we can glance back at those nostalgic pictures and remember what it was like.

Well, if the truth be told, I've actually been thinking about buying a digital camera for a few months now. That's because I've seen the amazing shots that my friends have taken with their cameras, and I want to be able to get the same results. In addition, I'm a bit tired of having to deal with all my film rolls. It's tough to remember which ones are new, which ones have already been used, and what kind of pictures are on them. I've also lost quite a few film rolls while on vacation over the years. I figured I could eliminate these problems by buying a digital camera.

Towards that end, I'd been reading online guides and reviews from people who have experience with buying a digital camera. I've found these articles to be very helpful, as they alert me to the brands that are easy to use, that produce high-quality photos, that come packed with features, and are the best bargains. In fact, these resources made the task of buying a digital camera easier than I imagined it would be.

You should think about what type of zoom facility you want, when buying a digital camera. The choice is between optical and digital. The consensus of opinion seems to be that it's easier to get good, clear resolution from an optical zoom. A more experienced user may find digital zoom just as good.

The most annoying thing about any gadget is the batteries winding down. Buying a digital camera requires deciding on your battery needs. Some cameras are sold with their own batteries, but you may want to invest in rechargeable batteries. It really depends on how often you intend to use your camera.

One of the benefits of buying a digital camera is the preview screen picture, as you can see your picture straight away. Some cameras have refined the features on this and enable you to also zoom in on a magnified image on the screen.

Another consideration when buying a digital camera, is any special conditions you may want to photograph in such as night shooting or bad weather. If you don't mind spending a bit more, some cameras have features for taking good pictures at night and you can get lens covers to protect against inclement weather. Buying a digital camera for shooting in all weathers may mean buying a weatherproof camera.
