Sales of digital cameras seem to be
 exploding. This is not surprising
as the quality of images from digit
al cameras improves and they become
 more affordable. In addition, cons
umers are becoming more comfortable
 with the idea of digital photograp
hy.

There are so many different types o
f digital cameras available choosin
g one which is best for your needs
can become a very confusing decisio
n. There are several things to cons
ider when choosing a digital camera.

Types of Digital Camera.

There are basically three types of
cameras whether you care shooting f
ilm or digital. Point and Shoot cam
eras, Prosumer cameras and professi
onal quality cameras.

1. Point and Shoot cameras are full
y automatic. They do everything for
 you. The camera choosing the corre
ct exposure and whether a flash is
needed. The photographer only needs
 to point and shoot.

2. Prosumer Cameras. These cameras
are a step up from point and shoot
cameras and allow the user to eithe
r shoot in fully automatic mode or
to have some control over the expos
ure by using specific exposure mode
s. For example, there might be a po
rtrait mode, an action mode, and a
close up mode.

3. Professional Cameras. These came
ras allow the photographer to actua
lly look through the lens. This mea
ns that what you see is what you ge
t. These cameras also provide compl
ete control over the exposure. They
 have fully automatic mode, specifi
c exposure modes as well as a fully
 manual mode.

Resolution

Regardless of what type of camera y
ou decide to get you will also have
 to make the decision about the res
olution of the camera.

If you have shopped at one of those
 electronics superstores you will b
e lead to believe that the most imp
ortant thing to consider when purch
asing digital cameras is the number
 of pixels. Although it is importan
t there is much more to deciding on
 a digital camera than pixels. Pixe
ls are tiny squares, and in new mod
els other shapes, that make up the
image. Obviously the more pixels th
e sharper the image. The more pixel
s there are the more detailed the i
mage.

Almost all of the digital cameras o
n the market today produce images w
ith at least 4 million pixels. With
 this resolution you can print imag
es up to 8x10 which will look very
good. Since most people do not prin
t images larger than this a camera
with 4 million pixels or more shoul
d meet all of your needs.

Try Different Cameras Before you Buy


Different cameras can have very dif
ferent image qualities even though
they may have the same number of pi
xels. This is due to different type
s and sizes of sensors on which the
 images are recorded and the variou
s qualities of lens used. It is rec
ommended that you purchase a memory
 card and take it in with you to th
e camera store. Then you can try ou
t various cameras by taking photogr
aphs on your memory card. You can t
hen take the pictures home and view
 them on your computer or better ye
t have them printed at a local lab
to compare the results. Make sure t
o take notes so that you remember w
hich image was taken on which camera.

Digital cameras are constantly chan
ging and being improved upon. Every
 few months it seems there is a new
 model out with more pixels and bet
ter features at a more affordable p
rice. Do not let this bother you. T
ake the time to choose a good digit
al camera which makes quality photo
graphs and enjoy the benefits of di
gital photography for years to come.

And one last piece of advice. Digit
al photography has created a new pr
oblem. People are not printing thei
r photos anymore. They download the
m to their computer and then they e
ventually get lost or deleted. Prin
t those special photographs. Your c
hildren will thank you.
