Digital Cameras: Buying Guide

Digital cameras are everywhere these days - but choosing the right one for you can be extremely tricky. This article will look through each option and help you to decide on the right digital camera for you.

Deciding which digital camera is for you really depends on two factors - what you plan to use the digital camera for, and what you can afford.

Many of us simply want a digital camera that we can slip into our pocket or bag, in case the need ever arises to take a few snaps. The best sort of camera for this type of photography is a simple compact camera. Compact cameras are often small, have large viewing screens, are simple to use and have a moderate optical zoom built into their frames. Depending on where you plan to use your new camera, you may also wish to invest in features such as water proofing for those poolside holidays or customizable covers, such as on certain Kodak digital cameras. Most compact cameras have video recording functions and rely on SD memory cards.

For those wanting something a bit more professional, choosing either a dSLR or a Bridge camera may be a more sensible option. These digital camera formats have many more functions and abilities than standard compact digital cameras, allowing you to take a much wider range of photographs - from family snaps to artistic portraits and more. Often, bridge cameras and dSLRs have a much higher number of mega pixels (which determine the quality of your photograph when printed or viewed on a big screen) as well as increased zoom capabilities. dSLR or bridge cameras may also have high definition recording abilities, which is a bonus. However, bear in mind that using these much larger bodied cameras is far more intrusive than a discrete point and shoot compact camera, as this may be an issue to you.

The second major factor in choosing a digital camera is cost. Whether you decide to go for a compact camera, a bridge camera or a dSLR, as a general rule of thumb, the more features and higher mega pixel count the more expensive a camera becomes. While you may be willing to pay for these extra features, consider whether you will actually use them or not. Finally, be aware that dSLR systems rely on buying extra lenses after the initial purchase of the camera body, and in many cases extra lenses are many times more expensive than the camera itself.

When choosing a digital camera, be sure to bear in mind what you plan to use it for and stick to a budget.
