Article Body:
Digital cameras have exploded in po
pularity in recent years. The conve
nience that they have brought to th
e market with the ability to review
 your pictures instantly and correc
t any imperfections by retaking the
 picture and the ability to store,
edit, and email them from your own
personal computer has fueled this g
rowth.

It is now no longer a matter of if
you need a digital camera, but rath
er which one do I choose?

First decide how you are going to u
se the camera. If simplicity is you
r goal, a simple point and shoot di
gital camera will do. If you wan th
e flexibility to be able to grow wi
th the camera as you gain experienc
e get a point and shoot that offers
 manual controls, this way you will
 have the best of both worlds – inf
inite options for creativity and th
e ease of an automatic mode.

The next item on your agenda should
 be megapixels. To keep it simple,
the more megapixels the better the
picture will be. So, how many megap
ixels do you need?
If all you are doing is printing or
 emailing photos, a 3 or 4 megapixe
l digital camera will work. If you
are going to use it for more profes
sional work and enlarging photos, g
o with one with 5 or 6 megapixels.

If you want uncompromising clarity
go with a 7 megapixel or above. Jus
t remember the higher the megapixel
s the higher the price!

How much zoom do you need? You have
 two types of zoom with digital cam
eras, digital and optical. Optical
is the more important because it br
ings your object closer without los
ing quality. The digital zoom will
bring the object in closer, but you
 sacrifice the quality of the pictu
re. If all you do is take everyday
pics a 1x to 4x optical zoom will d
o. If you take pics like sporting e
vents, get one with a 5x optical zo
om or higher. For really intense pr
ofessional work choose a 10x or bet
ter optical zoom.

Digital cameras have evolved now to
 the point where you can get a grea
t fully featured camera that will f
it comfortably in your shirt pocket
 so don’t think you have to get a l
arge one to get good quality. If yo
u are using it for more professiona
l use with large optical zoom and s
uch expect to have to buy a larger
one however.
