Buying Guide to Digital Cameras

When purchasing anything electronic or anything in general, you should always first know exactly what you are expecting from the particular item being purchased.

So in our case we are talking about Digital Cameras, so you may want a digital camera for everyday happenings, to capture the first step of your child, to catch your boyfriend/girlfriend off guard doing something quirky, in those cases most regular digital camera could be sufficient. But if you are trying to take professional photographs, or you need special zoom lenses there is definitely some research that has to be done.

You always need to keep in mind that you are not just going to be buying the digital camera, in some circumstances you will need to purchase additional equipment, SD cards (memory cards), convertible flashes, cases, cleaning products and much more.

Some very reputable brands of digital cameras are Canon, HP, Kodak, Fuji, and Nikon, just to name a few.
Now each of these brands carry hundreds of different styles of digital camera, so it is up to you, deciding what the purpose of the digital camera will be used for and then making that purchase.

Now a couple very good questions are “What are mega pixels? And how many should I have for ideal picture taking?”
Alright, pixels are the little dots that create a picture, and if you get close enough to your computer monitor, or use a magnifier you can see them.

Now there is a myth that pixels don’t have much to do with taking a great picture, as reported by Ken Rockwell “Forget the silly debate over pixel counts among digital cameras. There is little visible difference between cameras with seemingly different ratings. For instance, a 3 MP camera pretty much looks the same as a 6 MP camera, even when blown up to 12 x 18!” I know because I’ve done this. Have you?”

Pixels decide how fine your image will turn out, the more pixels you have the finer and clearer your pictures supposedly become. For everyday use, or pictures for the purpose on the internet usually 2 to 4 mega pixels do just fine, but for more important pictures you should have 5 or more depending on the images being photographed.

For everyday photograph taking, the Nikon’s Coolpix 5600 has 5.36 total mega pixels, a 3x optical zoom lens and 1.8″ LCD monitor to the cameras short, silver frame.
