Things To Look For When Purchasing A Digital Camera, An Informative Speech.

962 words - 4 pages

Today I'm going to talk about things to look for when buying a digital camera. Working in a photo center, I find that some people are intimidated by the complexity of some digital cameras. They would rather stick using a 35 mm camera instead of trying out something new. Knowing what to look for and what fits your situation will help you get the most out of your digital camera. I'm going to cover the basic features of all digital cameras, as well as some accessories you may want to purchase for your camera.Probably the deciding factor for many digital camera buyers is the amount of mega pixels the camera can shoot. A pixel is a small dot of color used to make a digital photograph. If you have ever looked at a television screen up close you can see that the picture is made of many of these pixels. One "mega pixel" is equivalent to one million pixels in a picture. A million pixels may sound like a lot, but is considered a low resolution compared to what is available today. 1 and 2 mega pixel cameras are sufficient for attaching images to email or posting on the internet. If you decide to print your image the largest size you can print without noticing any distortion is a 4x6 inch print. 3 or more mega pixels allow you to take more professional pictures. With a 3 mega pixel camera you can print photos up to an 8x10 inch print and notice very little distortion. 4 or more mega pixels provide almost perfect prints at any size. You will notice very smooth lines and vivid detail with these higher end cameras.The next importing thing to note is the camera's ability to zoom. Zooming is taking the object you're going to shoot, and making it appear to come closer to you. There are two kinds of zoom available on digital cameras: optical zoom, and digital zoom. The most important thing to look for in your camera's zoom is its optical zoom. Optical zoom provides more clarity by moving the lens in and out like a film camera. The more optical zoom the camera has the more you will be able to zoom in on your subject without distorting the picture. Digital zoom is mainly just an enhancement of the picture; there are not moving parts on a camera when it is doing a digital zoom. The pixels of you picture are enlarged to create the effect of the subject coming toward you. This can cause your picture to become fuzzy or blurry, as the lines in the picture are not as smooth. Most cameras feature and optical as well as digital zoom. When you hit the zoom button to bring your image closer, the camera will first engage the optical zoom mode. If you wish to continue zooming and your optical zoom is maxed out, the camera will then begin to zoom digitally making the pixels...
