How to Buy a Digital Camera

By: David W Johnson

Buying a digital camera is no easy matter.

Back before digital cameras were all the rage, the technology did not change that much, but buying a camera was still a hassle. You would have to look at quality, ease of use and versatility among many other features to decide what was the best buy that you could make.

But buying a digital camera is just that much harder because there are so many features that you have to consider.

First, the technology changes so fast that learning how to buy a digital camera is an art in and of itself. Letís face it. Who wants to buy a 3.1 megapixel digital camera when, the next day they are going to come out with some camera that costs half as much with twice the resolution, or better memory.

No one, that's for sure.

It just does not make sense no matter how you look at it. That is why, before you go out and buy a camera, you should consult someone who knows how to buy a digital camera to make sure that you have considered all the most important details.

If you want to buy a digital camera, you should probably start by doing some research on your own.

Consumer Reports is always a good place to start. They provide all the relevant information that you could ask for to help you make a wise decision. Besides that, of course, there are many other good sources for information on getting a good digital camera.

For example, you can look at trade journals. Both photography journals and electronics journals will be able to give you many details on buying a digital camera, including product reviews and technical specs on all the leading brands.

You can probably also go into a store and ask all that you want about the digital cameras they sell there and get honest answers. Beware it is not just one of those stores that will sell you anything for your money. Buying a digital camera at a reputable store is a good idea, and might be more practical than using the Internet.

Although you will be able to save some money buying on the Internet, there could be problems. If something goes wrong with the camera, for example, you could be in for a hassle.
