Some Honest Advice When It Comes To Digital Cameras

Published by at 6:39 pm under General

Having a good guide for your digital camera purchase can be invaluable. The thing to remember, is that even though you may find contradictory answers, just keep researching. If you read enough, you should begin to see a glimmer of consensus shine through.

If ever there was a controversial question amongst the hordes of digital camera enthusiasts, it has to be “What is the best digital camera brand?”. Sometimes referred to as “What is the best brand of digital camera to buy?”, but not to be confused with “What is the best camera to buy?”. Because everyone knows that regular (film) cameras are far superior to digital cameras. Hang on a sec, or was that the other way around? Who can keep track these days? Now before I digress too far from the topic, lets take a look at that age old battle, and see if we can determine which brand is best.

Taking outdoor pictures in good lighting, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better camera at any price. If you don’t mind fiddling a bit with the A720’s white balance and metering mode, you can also compensate for picture taking in less than ideal lighting situations. For around $200, you get image stabilization, 8 megapixels, 6x zoom, and a real optical view finder. The view finder is missing on many cameras in this class, but not the A720. This get the most out of your digital camera and this professional digital cameras should help.

The one big feature you get with the G9 that you won’t find on a simple point and shoot is RAW format. It basically saves your images without compressing them into jpg format and losing some picture quality. RAW is far more flexible when it comes to editing pictures later. You basically get more manual control of your picture taking, like a SLR, but without the added size and extra lenses. You can get a G9 for about $500 these days.

So there you go, a good starting base with three canon cameras that should suit the novice, semi-pro, or full blown professional categories. Once you’ve picked one as a reference point, a closer look at some similar digital cameras would be in order. The more informed you are, the happier you’ll be with your next camera, and the photographs you take with it.

Lets get right to it. It’s very true, that the immense popularity of digital cameras (SLR and otherwise) and rapid technical advances have produced a glut of choices and features that can be bewildering to the average consumer.

The dual image stabilization and face detection features make this camera a very good buy. These are just a few Fuji digital camera suggestions, but there are plenty more to think about.

Try different lenses to. Have lots of questions for the sales people, but take their answers with a grain of salt. They are sales people after all. The actual experience of handling and using the camera should be your final factor in making your decision.
