Finding the Best Digital Camera

Jul 9, 2008
It seems that every month manufacturers are coming up with another new digital camera in their range to entice potential customers. Researching what you consider to be the best digital camera may at first seem daunting but there are a number of web sites that carry out comparisons to assist. Eventually saving enough money to buy that eye-popping, 10 mega-pixel, 10x optical zoom with up to a sixteen gigabyte expandable memory using super hi-speed SD memory card and of course, very compact; which we hope be the envy of almost everyone we know.

It is only when you get to the mall and take a look in the camera shop that you realize that your choice is now on special offer because it has been replaced with a more feature packed model at a higher price.

Suddenly you are frustrated again as you learn that because you want the best digital camera, it is going to cost you considerably more than you thought. The best digital camera is now going to cost us considerably more and being new there aren't any discounts to be had. If you are new to digital cameras and photography the tips below might be useful and point you in the right direction. One of the most important features of an ordinary model to make it into the best category is its mega pixel property.

Although it is not always the case, a good rule of thumb is the more pixels you have the better the image will be when it is printed. The resolution of your image is based upon the mega-pixel property of your camera which means that as you enlarge the picture, you would get more detail and less blurry colors.

The advantage of larger LCD screens on the cameras means you have more control over the composition of the finished image and it is much easier to see the shots you have taken afterwards. Making adjustments to the photo you have just taken is just one of the many functions now incorporated into good digital cameras helped by having a big LCD screen.

A quick tip on this subject involves the batteries which have a tendency to run out quicker if a large LCD screen is fitted and is used constantly; some sound advice is carry spares! Most digital cameras have a digital zoom but an optical zoom is always better.

Low spec cameras that only cost a fraction for their quality cousins will only have a digital zoom; unless you really aren't at all fussy about your shots you would be well advised to stay clear of buying a digital zoom only camera. Your camera will normally come with a memory card albeit a small one so you will probably need to buy a large capacity card, so use the one you have to make sure you purchase the correct one.

Some of these memory cards may already be familiar to you: the XD, SD, Memory Stick and Compact Flash. As the large megapixel cameras use a large amount of memory then purchase the largest capacity card your camera can use within your budget.

The cost has dropped rapidly so take advantage of these larger storage capacity cards now that the price is lower.

Remember, the camera must suit the type of person you are as much as your wallet as there is no point having the best digital camera if you do not use it. If you enjoy taking shots with your new toy and use it regularly then that is all you can ask from a camera isn't it?
