Choosing A Camera: Should You Go Digital?

Aug 17, 2007
The past two years have been the glory years for those picture snapping buddies. The camera has been incorporated to almost all mobile devices like cellular phones, portable music players, personal digital assistants and even as an extension device to some mobile gaming devices. But first we go to the basics, to the camera itself, should we buy the analog or the digital camera.

Analog cameras are becoming cheap nowadays that you can buy it with just the fraction of the cost of the digital camera. Though prices for the digital ones are also reasonable enough for everybody to buy one! New models keep popping up. The development of the core CCD processor has been a vast improvement that an upgrade in mega pixel capture is inevitable.

Why should you buy a digital camera?

Instantaneous that is what's making digital cameras click in the market. Snapping with your friends and viewing the result at an instant shortens the anticipation time and if you don't like the picture you can just instantly snap again. Unlike with the analog camera, you'll have to wait for the film to develop and often get disappointed of the results. Sadly, the moment has already passed by.

Convenience since all pictures are instantaneous, you don't have to go to your local film developing shop just to have your pictures developed. You can just plug it to your Mac or PC through the interface wire and print it. You could even edit it to make it more exciting. It is also convenient to share the photographs online since the format that digital cameras use is common graphic format for computers. With just the simple step of attaching the files, you are done. Since digital cameras (even the very basic point and shoot models) come with different shooting modes, it's not a hassle changing from one ISO film rating to the other. You can shoot a scene indoors and the next picture is an outdoor beach setting and all you have to do is flick through the menu.

Cheaper browsing through the taken pictures through the computer, you can choose which of those you should make a print and which of those should only be on the hard disk. You can even print it at the convenience of your own home, without any prior graphics or photo printing experience if you have your own printer. All you have to do is beef up your memory card so you could take more pictures.

Interface Friendly with an entry level digital camera you can switch it to a manual setting and use some settings found in your analog camera. You can change the aperture speed or choose to opt for a manual focus to capture that expressive moment that you have been waiting for.
