Shopping for a digital camera involves a lot of choices because the selection is so large. In order to make your shopping trip a little easier, there are some things you can consider beforehand to narrow down your search a bit. These tips for buying a digital camera may come in handy this holiday season.
1. What are you buying it for?
Because they make digital cameras for both experts and novices, it's important to know what you're buying your camera for. Do you have experience with cameras? How professional do your pictures need to be? Will you be taking pictures indoors, outdoors, or both? Thinking about the answers to these questions won't identify the perfect camera for you, but it will make it easier for you to work with a salesperson to narrow down the selection. If the camera isn't going to be used by you, then think about what the eventual owner will want to use it for.
2. Megapixels are important, but they don't tell the whole story
It used to be that a megapixel rating told you most of what you needed to know about a camera. Times have changed, however, and the number isn't as important as it used to be. That's because most new cameras have 5 megapixels or more, so you won't find yourself upset at the size and quality of your photos unless you have a specific purpose in mind. At levels much higher than 5 you might find yourself wishing for a lower megapixel rating as the pictures will take up a lot of space on your hard drive.
3. The camera might not be the only necessity
This is especially true depending on what you want to use the camera for, but any camera purchase may necessitate the purchase of accessories as well. For example, a camera may not come with a memory card, which is essential to store more than a few photos. Spare batteries and a case are two other accessories many people find important. But, depending on your use, you may also want a tripod, external flash, and other accoutrements.
4. Check out the reviews
Before you shop, go online and check out some user reviews. It make some time so sort the wheat from the chaff, but it will give you a good idea of any serious problems should they exist. Reading reviews can really help you to narrow down your list once you've identified several potential cameras.
5. Test the camera
When you have a list of possibilities in mind, got to the store and ask to try them out. It's important to hold the camera and take a few shots with it. Some cameras may be too bulky and may simply feel uncomfortable to you. Weight and size can really play an important part in how happy you are with the product.
6. Find your price
Once you have the camera in mind, it's up to you to find a good price on it. With enough searching, you can generally find a discount on any make or model, you just have to be patient.
