It seems that every month, if not every week, different manufacturers are 
coming up with the latest digital cameras to entice potential clients.
And it's just not working for us! 

After spending sizeable amount of time at the mall figuring out which 
is the best digital camera for us, we finally have enough money to buy 
for that eye-popping, 7 mega pixel, 10x digital zoom, potable, candy 
colored, up to 512MB expandable memory of super hi-speed SD memory card 
and not to mention very portable, (that will be the envy of almost 
everyone we know). We march to the mall armed with our life savings and
lotsa pride in ourselves, when we pass by a new display - an eight 
mega pixel, up to 1G expandable memory, with built it mic and stereo 
surround, video playback capable, with 22 scenic modes kind-of-camera.
And we sigh because the producer of this amazing gadget claims that
this is the best digital camera yet out in the market. And so as we
always want to have the best, armed with our life savings and a few
credit cards, we buy the "best digital camera." But then again, that
doesn't last too long, after two months or so, there's another "best
digital camera."

And so it confuses us. What makes a digital camera, the best digital camera?

Well, there are certain factors to consider when
looking for the "best digital camera" for us.

MEGAPIXELS. One of the most important features of digital camera to make
it into the best digital camera category is its mega pixel property.
The higher the mega pixels the better the actual photograph will come out.
A mega pixel is equivalent to one million pixels. The resolution of your
image is based upon the mega pixel property of your camera. This means
that as you enlarge the picture, you would get more detail and less
blurry colors.

LCD SIZE. The best digital camera will always have a large LCD to help
you frame your subject without having to squint to the viewfinder.
This is also helpful when reviewing your images, some cameras enable
touch up and editing features with its LCD. A 1.5-inch display is average,
a 2-inch LCD display is good, but the best LCD size would be 2.5 inches or higher.

ZOOM. Most digital cameras have both digital and optical zoom.
A higher optical zoom is always better than a higher digital zoom.
Digital cameras are usually furnished with optical of between 3x to 10x.
The better the optical zoom, the higher it climbs up to the best
digital camera category.

MEMORY CARD. Always make sure that your memory card is the right one for your
digital camera. There are different types of memory card like the xD, SD,
Flash card and the likes. And these types of memory cards go with certain
types of digital cameras. of course memory storage is also up there in choosing
the best digital cameras. Choose the size of memory that you need,
if you're a photo junkie, you might need more than 32MB.
Memory cards can go up to 1G.

The key point to find the best digital camera is to find one that will best
fit you and your lifestyle. Don't just buy the latest or the one that claims
they are the best digital cameras out in the market. You wouldn't want to buy
a DSLR and use it with your home activities or family outing and have to lug
it around?! Or you don't want to buy the latest point and shoot camera when
you're serious about being a professional photographer. (Of course, you can
use this for starters, but if you're not a novice photographer anymore, you
wouldn't want to get this kind of camera.)

Actually, the best digital camera is the one that you will enjoy and use.
Not the type that you'll just leave rotting in its box or after a few weeks
of usage or so, up there in the attic. 

Things You Need to Know Before You Buy Digital Camera

Digital cameras come in many sizes, colors, brands, zooms, resolutions,
playbacks, etc. There are so many features and qualities that are being
placed in the devices that buyers especially first timers become overwhelmed
and dizzy with these outstanding arrays of gadgets. This is even without
including the various advertisements and different ratings that are used
to promote these products.

So what are the things to look for if you want to buy digital camera?
To be able to answer these, there are 2 sets of information you have to know
before you can decide. The first type of information is defining what YOU need
and want in a digital camera. To do this, you can ask yourself the following

- What do you want to take with your digital camera? Before you buy digital camera,
it is important to determine what kind of pictures you want to take with it.
If you are a digital photography enthusiast, any digital camera will not just do.
You have to look for features that can support the zooming you need, the resolution,etc.

- How much is your budget? This is a very important question any person who intends
to buy digital camera should ask. Because no matter what your needs and wants are
for the device, your financial resource will play a huge part in dictating the
type of digital camera you will buy.

- What are you resources? When you buy digital camera, sometimes the spending does
not end there. You also have to consider the capacity and the power of the computer
and the printer you will be hooking your camera with for your editing and
printing needs. Editing software are already included when you buy digital
camera but other devices aren't. Aside from a printer, ink and paper for
printing, you might also need additional memory cards for your camera and
a more powerful computer to support image editing and image storage and retrieval.

After answering these 3 questions, the second set of information you need to know
before you buy digital camera are the features that you need in the device. These are:

- Resolution. Before you buy digital camera, check first its capacity to produce
high quality photo images. The number of pixels indicated determines resolution.
The more number of pixels, the higher the resolution which can make photos to
be enlarged without losing image quality.

- Built-in memory. Digital cameras need memory cards for picture storage. When you
buy digital camera, make sure that the gadget that you buy does not only have
a "built-in" memory but should also have a card slot for external and additional memory.
This allows you to change full memory cards conveniently while shooting your pictures.

- Look and feel. It is essential for you to feel comfortable holding your digital camera
while shooting. So, before you buy digital camera, it good to test and check if you are
comfortable holding it and using it. Consider where the buttons are located and how they
are spaced out and see also if you feel comfortable using the viewfinder.

- Battery life. Digital cameras use up batteries fast and batteries are expensive.
Before you buy digital camera, consider if the camera's batteries are rechargeable.
This way you can recharge them. Take also into consideration an AC adapter when you
buy digital camera. You can attach this to the camera when you are viewing your
pictures or uploading them

- LCD. The LCD is a special consideration you have to look into when you buy
a digital camera. This is a small screen located at the back of a digital camera
that allows you to preview the pictures you took. This has to be considered when
you buy digital camera because it uses up a lot of battery power.

- Special features. Special features that will suit your needs should be thought about,
too before you buy digital camera. If you want your camera to have good zooming, you can
opt for those with optical zoom lenses. A diopter adjustment on the digital camera's
viewfinder will also be beneficial to those who regularly wear glasses and wish to
buy digital camera. Other features such as remote control, tripods, etc. can also
be considered when you buy a digital camera.

With these information, you can now figure out what you really need and want
before you buy digital camera. If you want to see ratings and rankings of these
devices based on price, resolution or other features, check out various websites
that have these in the Internet.


Basically a digital camera is a deice use to capture pictures without the use of films.
Unlike the conventional camera, the digital camera does not rely on mechanical and
chemical processes. It has a built in computer and records the images it captures
in an electronic form. Having and operating one does not even require the use of electricity.

Since the images that a digital camera captures is in electronic form, it is a language
recognized by computers. This language is called pixels, tiny colored dots represented
by ones and zeros that make up the picture that you just took. Just like any conventional
cameras, a digital camera is furnished with a series of lenses that focus the light and
creates the image that you want to capture. The difference here is then; a conventional
camera focuses its light on a film while a digital camera focuses the light into
a semiconductor device that electronically records the light. Remember the built
in computer, it comes in here and breaks this information to digital data resulting
to all the features of the digital camera. 

Another feature of the digital camera is that it has a sensor that converts light into
electrical charges. A charge coupled device or CCD is an image sensor that is found
in a digital camera. While other low-end digital camera use complementary metal oxide
semiconductor or CMOS as an image device, it can still become better and more famous
in the future but most engineers are do not believe that it can replace the CCD for
higher-end digital cameras. 

A collection of tiny diodes, the CCD gathers electrons when they are struck by photons
or the light particles. Each diode or photosite is sensitive to light, meaning that
the brighter the light, the number of the electrons gathering will be larger 

The price of a digital camera nowadays have been depreciating, one of the main reasons
of this is because of the introduction of CMOS image sensors, this is because CMOS
sensors are less expensive and are easier to manufacture than CCD sensors. A CCD and
CMOS sensor works the same way at first, by converting the light electrical charges
into photosites. Simply putting it, is to think that a digital camera works in such
a way as thinking that the millions of tiny solar cells, each of which forms a part of
the whole image. Both CCD and CMOS do this task using different methods.

When shopping for the best digital camera, take note of these key features. 

Image quality. Check the resolution of the camera. The higher the resolution,
the more thou will be able to enlarge your picture without the grainy or the
out-of-focus effect that we all want to avoid.

Lens. Choose a digital camera with better digital zoom. The digital zoom of the camera
will enable you take the pixels from the image sensor and incorporate them to make an image.
Power. Always opt for rechargeable batteries, they can always come in handy, plus you don’t
waste as much money on the disposable ones. 

Options. So you can brag to your friends how good a photographer or artist you are.
Or choose the one that gives options that best cater to your lifestyle, so you won’t
ever whine how you never get the right pictures. 

Memory.  If you’re a photo freak, be sure that you have enough memory in your camera
to take all the wacky, freaky, funny and just about any photo you can. Think 512MB
if you’re a photo junkie and takes pictures of just about anything. 

Computer Interface. Always make sure that it is compatible with your PC, laptop,
palmtop or whatever your local picture printer software is, you don’t want to go
running around the whole state or the country looking for a computer that’s
compatible with your digital camera, wont you?!

Physical. If you are going to be bringing it everywhere, choose a handy and portable
digital camera. This way, it won’t always feel as heavy and bulky as those cameras
that you see professional photographers are always dragging on their neck.
Don’t they ever get tired of that?!

These are just the basic things you have to look for in a digital camera
when you buy one. A digital camera is so great that it is quickly replacing
all conventional cameras in the market, with all its technology and portability,
truly the digital camera is the future of cameras.
