How to choose a digital camera ?

Digital camera with complete accessories are items that must be owned by people who frequently travel or professional photographers. The digital camera is a device that is always ready to help you capture important moments in every vacation trip even your daily life. There are many types of digital cameras available in the market to choose from. There are several things you should consider in choosing a digital camera so you can get the goods to suit your needs:

Brand Cameras

There was no denying that the brand is very important in choosing a camera. The price of a camera is usually depending on the brand. There are so many brands of cameras on the market, each has advantages and disadvantages. Some of them have been around for a long time and is a leader in the market such as Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Sony, Pentax, etc.. Find information about the brand and specifications of the camera via the camera manufacturer brochure or website. See the match you needs with the budget you have.

Type of lens

The lens is a very important part in a camera, no camera lens is useless because the principle photography is drawing with light. So lenses that capture light and focus it so that it becomes an image. There are many types of lenses in the market. Lens on an SLR camera is usually a separate section with the camera body. Unlike the pocket camera which integrates with the body of the camera lens. Choose a camera with a quality lens types.

Camera Sensor

The sensor on the camera is an important part that serves to capture the object and recording into a digital image. The existence of sensors on digital cameras is very important. If the sensor deer then you can no longer call it a "camera".

Ancient times, when technology has not advanced and not yet introduced the idea of ​​a digital camera, light-sensitive film is used in a camera. The drawback of this technique is the object images are stored permanently and once just a piece of film exposed to light then you no longer can use it to take a different picture. However, in the era of digital cameras, and technology has changed the rules. It has now been much different, light-sensitive film has been completely replaced by the sensor. This sensor also acts as sensitive film but with the advantages of reusable without having to be replaced.

Optical Zoom not Digital Zoom

Lots of people are confused in distinguishing between optical zoom and digital zoom. Optical zoom is zoom technology that "real" or it can be said is that the actual zoom owned by a digital camera. Both are the work of the camera lens and not the camera body. With optical zoom, the motor in the camera lens actually moves in and out to give the necessary magnification.

Digital zoom on the other hand is the actual function is not required for each user of the camera. Digital zoom is the work of the camera body instead of the camera's lens. What is done by extending the digital zoom only the pixels of your photo while looking through your camera's LCD panel. This is actually not really zoom (magnification) of any kind. But that just makes you feel that you are closer to the object image. You will only get low-quality photos when using it for professional photography techniques. So the important thing is the optical zoom rather than digital zoom because the higher the optical zoom, then the price is more expensive, please choose to suit your needs.

Number of Pixels

Have you heard your colleague say that he has a megapixel camera with a bigger than you, and he confidently said that the camera will have more sophisticated and better picture quality? whether this is true? Of course not. Megapixel myth has prevailed so long in the digital camera market. And indeed, the camera manufacturers have exploited this myth through various promotions so that people assume that a higher megapixel camera will mean better quality.

High pixel size does not mean that your camera better. If I have an 8-megapixel digital SLR camera, It's will be able to take photos remotely superior than ordinary pocket-sized camera 12 megapixels. Why? Because it all depends on the sensor lens in the camera and not the number of megapixels. Megapixel camera will only work only if you plan to print your photos a paper photo. If you are an amateur photographer who uses a camera just to take photos and view them on your computer or upload to the internet, then a 4-megapixel camera is more than enough for you.

The size of megapixels is not the main requirement in determining image quality. Megapixel count can only determine how big you can print your photos or in other words his photo paper sizes can be larger if the greater megapixel camera. However, the pixel size should you consider before buying a digital camera.


Digital camera accessories are things you should consider when you buy a camera. Is available in the market? matched with the camera you buy? Camera accessories include memory cards, camera cleaning, camera bags, tripods, and others. Lots of accessories are available with a digital camera already exists in it as a promotional offer from a camera store or vendor. Select accessories according to the specifications of your camera. Accessories needed to support and enhance the ability of a camera at the time of use.
