There’s More to a Camera Than Megapixels

In the digital cameras of today, the megapixel issue of yesterday is a non-issue. Unless you are going to be making extreme enlargements - 16” x 20” or larger - a camera having a low double-digit megapixel capability (10 or 12 megapixels) will more than meet your needs. Instead of worrying about megapixels when selecting a camera, spend your time researching features that do make a difference in your photography, such as: • Sensor Size • ISO Range • Metering Modes • Optical/Digital Zoom Ratio Sensor Size Fact: the larger the sensor size, the larger the pixels on the sensor, the sharper the image. As far as pixel size, not all pixels are created equal, nor are sensors for that matter. Today there are three basic sensor categories: • Four Thirds • APS • Full Frame Four Thirds is generally 13.5mm by 18mm and commonly used in point and shoot cameras. APS and Full Frame are used in both DSLRs and bridge cameras. The APS sensor measures from 14mm by 21mm ...

What Point and Shoot Cameras Have Over DSLR

A point and shoot camera is the choice of many consumer digital camera users, and for good reason. These little electronic computers generally have their closest cousin, the DSLR, beat in these three areas: • Size and Weight • Price • Ease of Use 1) Size and Weight Most point and shoot digital camera users like the light weight and small size due to the fact that they like to carry their camera in a shirt pocket, pants pocket or in a purse or man bag. That is just not possible with a DSLR or compact digital camera as most require a dedicated camera bag or carried over the shoulder by a camera strap. But for the occasional shooter, if their camera is big and bulky, they most likely will not carry it with them and consequently miss some great shots. With a footprint of generally around 3.75” x 2.25”, less than 1” thick, and weighing in at less than 8 ounces, point and shoots can be the perfect choice when size and weight are factors. 2) Price The second most popular ...
