Great new digital camera - Nikon Coolpix P90

By Dick Busch

It seems that every month manufacturers are coming up with another new digital camera in their range to entice potential customers After spending sizable amount of time at the mall and online research we finally figuring out which is the best digital camera for us. Eventually saving enough money to buy that eye-popping, 10 megapixel, 10x optical zoom with up to a sixteen gigabyte expandable memory using super hi-speed SD memory card and of course, very compact; which we hope be the envy of almost everyone we know. Can you imagine your surprise when you find that the camera you have researched so diligently and have set your heart on has been usurped from its position of best model with a newer more expensive version.

Unfortunately, technology doesn't ever stop for breath and your personal choice is no exception, so after months of searching you now have to have the latest version of the camera which has taken over the accolade.

Don't worry though if you are not sure what to do; just follow the guide below and you shouldn't go to far wrong. You really need to dismiss any decent model with less than 5 megapixels but I don't think there are many available now.

Although it is not always the case, a good rule of thumb is the more pixels you have the better the image will be when it is printed. If you are someone that likes to print large photos then the more pixels you have, the larger it can be printed out without distortion. LCD screens have over the years become much larger which means you can frame your shot easier and view the result with more ease than ever before. The best digital cameras are able to touch up and edit the images this is an excellent feature to have as standard.

The larger the display the better but remember that the greater the size the screen shorter the life of the batteries. A digital camera with an optical zoom facility is the one to try for and a digital zoom only camera should be avoided if you want clear, well defined images. Optical zooms are usually fitted on the more expensive cameras with a combination digital zoom. Images on these cameras are stored on small storage cards that can have a huge memory capacity but be sure to buy the right type.

Some of these memory cards may already be familiar to you: the XD, SD, Memory Stick and Compact Flash. Try to obtain the largest memory you can for your camera and your budget. Prices for the large gigabyte cards now are almost the same price as one that was only 64mb only 2 or 3 years ago.

Your life and interests should really be the ideal measuring stick for the type of digital camera you ultimately buy. If you enjoy taking shots with your new toy and use it regularly then that is all you can ask from a camera isn't it?
