Top 10 Digital Cameras - What You Need To Know About Them


There are a large number of top 10 digital camera lists available on the Internet today. Each one of them is different and they all have different sets of criteria, on the basis of which these lists are compiled.

However, it is not necessary that a top 10 list by a particular site is the top 10 list for you. Since every camera user has his/her own preferences, it is not really correct to assume that one top 10 list works for everyone.

So, the best thing that you can do is to develop a set of top 10 criteria for yourself. Once you do this, then you will be able to develop your own top 10 digital camera list. So, now the question arises that how do you develop your criteria list.

The first and foremost thing to do is to determine the reason why you want to buy a digital camera. What are you going to use the camera for? How do you plan to use the photographs? And the most critical question of all, what is your budget?

Let us assume that you answer the above questions in the following manner : You want a digital camera to take pictures of your family and during holidays.

You plan to use the photographs by printing them out to put into family albums, calendars and to post them on your web site.

Your budget for the camera is $200-300.

The above statements are enough to narrow down your choices quite a bit.

You specifically need to look at the battery life of the camera - since on vacation you will not be able to charge your digital camera at all times.

You also need to see the storage space available on the camera as it will not be possible for you to keep on transferring images at all times.

You need a camera with zoom options but whether you go for an optical zoom or digital zoom will get decided by your budgetary constraints.

You need flash since family photographs are normally taken indoors.

Your camera should be user-friendly, since it is likely that other/younger family members will be using the camera as well. The camera should be sturdy as well, especially if you are on vacation with young children.

The camera should be compact and light-weight as it is not possible to carry big, bulky cameras while traveling.

A digital camera which can shoot good images to be put on a web site and in calendars needs to have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. So this is another factor to be considered.

If you visit the beach while vacationing, then you might want to consider a water-proof camera. However, to fit this into your budget might be a bit difficult. Hence, there are digital cameras which come with water-proof cases and are cheaper. So, this might be the next best option for you.

You can also go for a digital camera which supports MPG files, so you can click mini-videos. This is a great option for those people who do not possess digital video cameras.
