Impact Of The Compact Camera

Aug 28, 2008
How many times you wished you have a camera in your pocket to take pictures of your classmates funny faces or a rare dine-out with all your closest friends or probably the first steps of your baby. Too bad all you can do is wish.

You should not have gone through all the pain of missing special moments if only you have a camera. I say - grab one!

With so many cameras to choose from I am sure you will find something that fits you lifestyle and budget and also your talent. If you still think that is a tedious process, worry not. A little encouragement is all you need.

For beginners, a compact camera, or others would call it point and shoot camera, is a good start. Especially if we are not talking about high level photography, a compact camera can absolutely do the job for you. It is not expensive, convenient, easy to carry and generally easy to operate. Let us take a look at them one by one.

Operation:

Professional cameras like DSLR (digital single lens reflex) are a bit hard to use. They have a lot configuration and settings you have to adjust every now and then. If you do not want the hassle of changing settings or simply you do not know how to then a compact camera is just what you need.

Compact cameras have easy-to-use pre-set configurations or auto modes. The quality of the image might not be as crisp as what you can get from dslr but at least you do not have to grope blindly on the configs. You might stumble on some blurred pictures once in a while but hey, a take two is not that bad is it not?

Preview Feature

One good thing about compact cameras is that they all come with LCD display that does not come with all dslrs. The LCD display will give you a preview of the image you have taken that you can easily save or delete. Other cameras have flip-out LCD screen. This will allow you to take pictures on different angles.

Price

While professional dslrs prices range from $900 to $4000, the compact camera is really easy on the budget. Their prices only range from $100 to $500 otherwise you want a top-of-the-range state-of-the-art one with super zoom and wide screen cameras.

Portability

And most of all compact cameras are easy to carry (dont it just make sense of its name). It is actually the main concern of the people who have this kind of camera, even the professionals. Aside from being easy to use, you can slip this kid in to anywhere. In you pocket, in you bag, in you purse and virtually anywhere because of its size. And this is very lightweight.

In some cases where you have to take picture in an unstable position, even professional photographers wont dare gamble their dslr especially if its not that important, a light and small compact camera will definitely get the job done.

These slim and stylish cameras are really a must nowadays. So dont let that special moment slip again. Take them and keep them. Start clicking now!
