Digital Photography is one of the most common and fascinating art. Everybody wants a camera, but when we buy one, we have no idea what the criteria should be. I went out on the discussion with my friends 2 days back, who went through many magazines to get the right idea. So here is the post which can tell you what to look for in a digital camera when you buy it the next time.
What To Look For in a Digital Camera When You Buy Next?
- Megapixels: If you are a professional or you need an excellent quality of output, don’t go below 5 megapixels or may be higher.
- Optical Zoom: If you are a hobby photographer, 3x will be more than enough, but if you are going outdoor shooting and you want to have treasured memories with quality, get a 12x.
- Memory Options: Flash memories are cheaper these days, and it’s getting cheaper every day, so don’t lure into buying a cheaper one.1 GB will be the best buy. You can store around 200 photographs with it. Check the reliability of the card and get the market review for it.
- Macro Mode: With this mode on your camera, you can capture fantastic photographs of objects like flowers and closer objects.
- Rechargeable Lithium-ion Batteries: Avoid the camera, which asks you to buy new batteries every time. When you are on the move, it’s easy to find a power point rather than get new batteries. So get a camera that has a long battery life (Lithium-ion), and you can recharge them easily.
- Indoors and Outdoors: If you are shooting indoors, you need to have a decent flash, and if you are shooting outdoors, get a 12x optical zoom. Don’t compromise. It’s a one-time investment.
- Connectivity Options: These days connecting with computers are the best option. Get a camera that can connect to your system via USB. These will not only help you with data transfer, but you can store it temporarily anywhere. And as time changes, WI-FI will be the next option.
- Extra Options: Look for something better always. Multiple exposure settings, appropriate shutter speed, white balance options, and others.
