Basic things to know in buying a Digital Camera

Sony Cybershot Digital Camera



     Shop for a digital camera today and you'll be overwhelmed with the choices available. Whatever your budget, you'll find dozens of cameras available at your fingertips. Some have similar features, some are small, others are clunky, and you can even buy one in your favorite color.




     How do you pick the digital camera that's right for you? Here are 5 things we suggest you consider before making your choice.


    Whatever camera you're using, you can take good pictures by knowing a few basic guidelines and some pro-level tips. Get them from "Shoot Digital Pics Like the Pros.



To create a shortlist of digital cameras, here are the top 5 things to consider:



1. Your budget



Decide how much you're willing or able to spend on your new camera, and limit your research to cameras within that budget. Why waste your time oohing and aaahing over the latest coolest gadget only to discover that it's beyond your means? Now you can look at the cameras within your budget. The next thing to consider is...



2. Your photography needs



What types of pictures will you be taking - portraits? landscapes? sports pictures? indoor or outdoor? The answer to this question will help you determine which features are important for you. If you'll mainly be taking snapshots of your children, you'll probably want a camera with face recognition feature and easy red-eye reduction. On the other hand, if you're always trying to capture action shots from your son's soccer game, you'll want a camera with high-speed burst shooting.



3. How you print your pictures



You also need to ask yourself how you print your pictures. Do you make 4 x 6-inch prints at home or at the drugstore? Then you won't need a camera with huge amounts of megapixels. On the other hand, if you sometimes make poster-sized prints, then look for a minimum of 10 megapixels. If you don't even print your pictures but share them online and via email, you need even less.



4. Who uses the camera



Will your spouse, children or co-workers be using the camera as well? Then you'll need a camera that's easy enough for them to use. Digital cameras that offer automatic program settings are easy enough even for children to use. Image stabilization also comes in handy when young ones or amateurs use the camera.



5. How serious you are with digital photography



Do you foresee yourself growing beyond a digital photography enthusiast to possibly becoming semi-professional? Then look for a camera with features that will grow with your skills. For example, a digital camera which allows you to make your own aperture, shutter speed, focus and other settings will give you enough room to experiment.


     We suggest you use this guide to make a shortlist of digital cameras, and then head to the nearest electronics shop and look at each of the shortlisted cameras in person. Note how each camera feels in your hand, how easy it is for you to reach the buttons and manipulate them, and how solid the camera feels.


     A camera can only do so much. The quality of a picture still depends on the person taking it.
