What is 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.

By the time we actually go to the mall armed with our life savings, we pass by a new display with an all new model that has even more mega pixels, and larger expandable memory, with built it microphone and video playback with stereo sound and 22 scenic modes.

And you get upset cause your thinking i just bought that for so much more. However, the decision to purchase the best digital camera has been made for us because why would we now want second best. Before you rush off and buy your digital camera, there are a few tips I can pass on about buying one. First off try and search out a model with a higher number of pixels, referred to megapixels; you ideally need over 5 although with today's cameras it would be hard to find one under that anyway.

As digital photo printing costs have reduced over the last few years more and more people are taking advantage of this so the higher the number of pixels you have, the larger you can print your images. The resolution of your image is based upon the megapixel 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.

Be sure to pay attention to the batteries which have a tendency to run for the larger the LCD screen the faster it runs out; so make sure you carry spare ones! Almost every digital camera has a digital zoom but it is the optical zoom that you need to try for if your budget will extend to it.

However, the lower price range cameras rarely come with an optical zoom and where fitted, optical zooms range between 3x to 12x power. These cameras use a memory card to store the images on but there are a variety of types, so be careful when buying one for your model.

Although there is quite a range of storage cards available it normally boils down to one of four types: the newer XD cards from Olympus and Fuji, the SD, card, Sony's Memory Stick and the old but reliable Compact Flash. Due to the fact that the cameras with higher mega-pixels takeup more memory, buy a card with as much memory as you can afford.

For example, for the price of a 64mb card a couple of years ago you can probably now buy a 1 gigabyte and now some memory cards can go up to 16 gigabytes.

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?
