Compact Cameras Vs Digital Cameras

Aug 28, 2008
Back in the days when everything digital from music files to photographs were still just a clever idea of one of those tech geeks, people were used to taking photographs using film-loaded compact cameras, manual SLRs, and lugging all their precious mementos in their wallets or filo fax.

As the digital age continues to eat up everything low-tech, you will be surprised that a lot of people not just the oldies, prefer to go back to the old-school style of taking pictures.

And just like with each and every little thing on this earth, there are always two sides to every story and there will always be pros and cons with each gadget. So if you are on the market to get yourself a new camera, whether a cutesy compact camera or the latest digital camera, here are a few tips that you can use for your camera shopping.

Compact cameras are cheap. Yes indeed, they are and if you are wondering why these nifty little gadgets are being sold for only $20 well it's because compact cameras, specifically toy compact cameras do not require any batteries in order to take artsy photographs.

Aside from that, you still need to load these up with film to be able to use it. So to be more precise, compact cameras do not have fancy features and were not made with complicated microchips which means that manufacturing them is a whole lot cheaper than the more sophisticated gadgets that you see in stores these days.

Buy digital cameras if you want something handy. While compact cameras are not bulky and cumbersome to pack like the good SLR camera, documenting your vacation through pictures will certainly be less of a hassle if you use a digital camera. Firstly because you can instantaneously view your pictures and delete the ones that you do not like.

This way, you will already know if you have blinked in your picture so you will have the chance to have it taken again before you go home. Second, since there is this prevailing green trend which asks all of us to be more considerate about the environment and start making small adjustments to make the world a better place, using a digital camera will prove to be a more suitable choice.

Not only will it help save paper, it also prevents the use of possibly harmful chemicals as you do not need to have your pictures developed anymore, you can just easily upload it to your PC or laptop.

Compact cameras will help you develop your photography skills. This really holds true especially for photography novices as digital cameras tend to be so easy to use, people will most likely tend to get lazy and will not learn the basics of how a great picture can be composed. Compact cameras are great when you want to learn the ins and outs of taking great pictures since everything is done manually just like with the pricier SLR cameras.
