Things to Consider
Though I’ve spoken about this topic in detail on the other pages, here are things that you need to consider when shopping for a Digital Camera.
Looks and color can be personal and may vary from person to person, but it’s a good idea to figure out what features you want in your digital camera.
This is not an exhaustive list, but some of the features that you may want to consider include:
The resolution – how many Megapixels you need?
Optical zoom strength – very important
Viewfinder, size of screen
How much Memory you need?
Camera size & weight
Video recording capability
A few of these points may seem technical, but can easily be learnt. You can read more here on what these features mean, and “how digital cameras work”. It’ll arm you with the basic digital camera information that you need to make sense of all the features that are mentioned in the review pages here.
In case you want to know more about any particular camera brand or model, you can use the “search box” to find the relevant information here on this site.
Remember Your Needs
There are some who like to overspend while shopping, whereas there are some who don’t like to spend and always prefer to go for the inexpensive ones.
What is important here is to know what you’re going to use the camera for.
For instance, you might want a camera to be compact and lightweight, but if you choose one with a higher spec, it may make it bulkier. On the other hand, if you’re serious about photography and if it’s your passion, you should consider buying a high end digital camera, and not an entry-level one.
How to Use This Site
There are several ways to find the information that you are looking for. You can use the menu at the top and on the side bars, or even the thumbnail images in the sidebar, or use the search box (available in the sidebar). Any of these options should take you to the information you’re after.
