Buying Guide »


Introduction

Long gone are the days of 36 shot films and disposable flashes. The evolution of the age of the digital camera has allowed novice and expert photographers alike to review, edit and improve the quality of their pictures. Be it for the family album pic or the artistic landscape shot, the Ciao Shopping Guide to Digital Cameras gives you overview of some of the major features to look for when making your purchasing decision.


Price + Size

As you would expect, the average price of a digital camera can vary highly depending on the specifications you are looking for. For a camera that provides a basic offering, you can spend as little as £50, but expect the quality of your photos to suffer as a result. While improvements to the number of megapixels offered by cheaper cameras have been made, buyers need to look at many other factors if they want a camera that takes the perfect shot. The lack of a decent zoom, battery life, decent flash and sufficient image and editing features will all have a detrimental effect on the final photo quality. The better you want your camera to perform in these particular areas, the more you will have to spend. Good quality digital cameras will cost between £150 and £200, with the best products starting at just over £300.

I love this camera!

Advantages: mage Quality Pictures are beautiful Performance I would like to be able to a and not worry about
Disadvantages: This ensures that proper framing is achieved-no any other reason in specific

It is easy to view photos and delete if desired. The battery compartment is very accessible. HOWEVER, it does not take the shot immediately -- there is a lag between pushing the button and when the photo is taken. As a result, I don't recommend it for tak ...

Point and shoot Canon Ixus 284 HS

Advantages: No complications of focusing, all adjustment are automatic, very light and easy to handle
Disadvantages: No manual AF, zooming is limited, video recording is not that HQ

This is a good point and shoot camera as from the name you get the idea of its working. You just have to point the camera and click the shutter button. You don't have to do those complicated calculation of ISO or shutter speed or white balance. In my opin ...
