Looking for a digital camera can often be confusing. It’s important to consider what you will be using your digital camera for when deciding what to buy; landscape, portraiture, architecture or something else entirely. Let’s clear the confusion caused by some of the technical terms and help you find the best digital camera.
1 megapixel is the equivalent of 1million pixels. The higher this number the greater the resolution of the image.
A greater resolution will allow you to crop into your pictures without losing image sharpness.
The ISO of a camera relates to the light sensitivity of the sensor. The higher the ISO the greater the sensitivity to light.
A camera with a high ISO will perform better in low-light conditions.
A good optical zoom is necessary if you will be taking lots of photos where your subjects are far away, like in wildlife or sports photography.
Digital zoom allows you to crop into your images, but this will be at the expense of the picture’s resolution.
This is technology within the camera that can help to combat the natural movements/shake of the users hands. Sharper images and more stable video footage can be produced with this function.
