Choosing The Digital Camera That's Right For You

By Digital Photographer

If you would like to learn digital photography but have not bought yet a digital camera, maybe this the right time to do so, considering that manufactures are offering so many new models with new features at bargain prices. It is wise to compare several models from different manufacturers and also the prices from different online stores. Make sure you do your research right, and most likely you will find the digital camera you are looking for.

With the explosion in digital photography recently, many people are confused about which digital camera to purchase. There are many digital cameras on the market ranging from 3 megapixels to a massive 12 megapixels.

There are many new digital cameras on the market today covering the needs of beginners right up to professionals. The vast majority of cameras offer very similar features such as a 3 times zoom lens, 6 to 8 megapixels, built in flash, a 2.5" LCD, various scene modes and a small compact body.

The range of features available make a digital camera very cost effective and more than likely you will be able to find the right camera suited to satisfy your needs. Will the price of the camera make much difference on the pocket?

All of the digital cameras that you are considering when you compare features should have an LCD screen for viewing pictures, a builtin flash, a timer, and a time/date stamp on even the most basic cameras. You should also look to compare digital camera packages that have optical zoom, not digital, if you need a zoom capability and most mid-range cameras should have high quality optical zoom lenses.

Your new digital camera should have the function to turn the flash off and if its light enough outside to read a book, then use the available light, and turn the flash off. In general camera flashes are too harsh for human skin and make all of us look pale. Indoors, where there isnt enough daylight, place your subject by a window and use your fill flash feature.

The best means to perfect your new digital cameras functions is practice. Take it everywhere with you. When you are going on a road trip open your eyes to all the beauty around you and click away. You will be surprised at the beauty you can catch in just one picture. Take it to family events, birthday parties, reunions, vacations and days out wherever you go.

Your new digital camera is your friend and should be your constant companion - you never know when you may need it. You will be so pleased you decided to buy a digital camera. When you have taken some photos you can view them instantly and show them off to your friends and family.

Keep in mind when you purchase your digital camera that regardless of the price you won't regret it. No longer will you waste money on badly taken pictures you just throw away. With your digital camera you can get rid of the pictures that you don't like. You can save the best ones to a CD and keep them from being harmed in any way. You'll be able to edit the photos, touch any of them up that might need it or alter them in any form you see fit.

So good luck on your journey into a the exciting world of a new photographer with your new digital camera taking pictures of what ever your heart may desire.
