Getting the Right Digital Camera, Thinking of buying a new digital camera Here are the key areas to. consider when making your move from film to digital or when. upgrading to your next digital camera Specific articles that explore. each of the areas listed below are also included in this section. Resolution, This term refers to the quality and clarity of an image In the digital. world it is generally measured in pixels For printing pixels per inch is. the standard measurement sometimes called dots per inch though. the two are not identical in meaning In the case of cameras resolu. tion is measured in megapixels Resolution is the one of the most. important aspects of any digital camera purchase, When it comes to deciding on the right level of resolution the most. important question you need to ask yourself is Am I going to want. to print enlargements and or crop and edit my photos before print. ing them at regular size, If you never print anything other than 4 x 6 pictures a 2 megapixel. camera should serve you just fine However if you would like to have. the option to enlarge your pictures to 5 x7 8 x10 or larger consider a. 3 4 or 5 megapixel camera This also holds true if you want the option. to perform significant edits on your digital photos such as cropping. and resizing, Basically bigger is better when it comes to megapixels Although.
when shooting at higher resolutions you will need more storage. capacity as your image file sizes will be significantly larger. Lenses Optical Zoom, Most mid level and higher digital cameras have great zoom lenses. Beware of the term interpolated resolution It On digital cameras optical zooms are measured by their magnifica. refers to the camera s software adding pixels, tion factor 2x 3x etc For comparison purposes it is often easier to. to the image after it is captured Interpolated, ask what the 35mm equivalent is This is because the magnification. resolution is useful in some cases but, effective resolution which reflects the actual measurements don t specify what size lens it is that s zooming. number of pixels in the camera s image sensor, it the most important for determining For instance a 2x zoom lens could mean a 28mm 56mm zoom a.
maximum print size and editing flexibility 35mm 70mm zoom or a 50mm 100mm zoom expressed in 35mm. Be sure you re comparing effective resolution equivalents These lenses would all have different properties so it is. when shopping for a camera or you may not worth asking for 35mm equivalents to be sure you understand what. get what you are really looking for you re getting. 8 www ACDSYSTEMS com,Part I Camera and Technology Tips. Exposure Modes, Will the basic automatic mode suit your needs Do you want shutter. priority for sports Aperture priority for portraits Spot metering for. difficult light There s a real range of available features in this area. even on cameras of similar prices Since exposure is the most impor. tant aspect of any photograph you will want to get as many expo. Be sure to look for the optical zoom rating, sure options as you can afford Here are some key features to look for. on a camera and not for the digital zoom,rating which can be much higher Digital.
