7 Smart Ways in Choosing the Best Digital Camera

By Pinky Mcbanon

Nowadays many people have the demand of having digital camera. Many other people would like to begin using this technology, but find the task of choosing an appropriate digital camera to be irresistible. So finding the best digital camera is not so easy. Here are 7 smart ways in choosing the best digital camera:

1) Computing Platform:
This is an obvious consideration but it is fast becoming less of an issue than it once was. Most current cameras can be interfaced with both Mac and Windows platforms.

2) Image Quality:
Image quality is a complex subject that includes exposure accuracy, color purity, optics, and image compression techniques.

3) Onboard Image Capacity: The amount of onboard image storage could be pretty important. There is generally a tradeoff between image capacity and image quality, so don't get too excited about high image capacity until you compare the amount of storage in relation to image resolution.

4) Reusable Memory Cards: Many cameras allow you to make your own decision about the memory/cost tradeoff by allowing you to store images on plug-in cards. This approach allows users to add as much or as little memory to the camera as they feel they need.

5) Exposure Versatility: digital cameras have the incapability to handle radically different lighting conditions. With film cameras, you can compensate for different lighting situations by using different types of film. With a digital camera, the camera's image sensor acts as the film, and it is not interchangeable.

6) Flash Capability: You have to also look for the availability and capabilities of a built-in flash. Key factors here are the range over which the flash will be useful, and the number of "modes" it has.

7) Self-Timer: A self-timer is simply a shutter delay that allows you to trigger the camera, and then run around to be included in the picture before the shutter snaps.
