Want to buy a new camera, huh?


Is photography your hobby or you press the shutter of your camera for your regular professional work? Whatever it may be, before buying a camera you need to know the different brands, prices and the different cameras that come along with latest technologies in the market. After this, if a camera suits your budget and taste then surely go on and get one for yourself and start rolling your finger over it. When it comes about buying a new camera you need to keep certain important things in your mind. Some of the important factors which one should be aware off are as given further in the article.

Factors to keep in mind before buying a new camera


Before buying a camera you need to ask yourself certain questions like what type of photography you want to do with it. By the type of photography I mean portrait, landscape, sports or micro. Next, you need to decide on which type of environment you would be doing the photography most? You need to think and decide whether you need to do outdoor, indoor, low light or bright light photography. Further, you also need to find out what type of special features you want in your new camera? By special features here I mean whether you want long zoom, image stabilization LCD etc. Next, you also need to decide about the size and portability of the camera which would suit you or your work the most. Last but not the least you also need to cogitate what your budget is for the new gizmo.

Megapixel


People generally have the notion that cameras with more megapixels are generally good cameras. But it would help your cause to be aware of the fact that this notion has no solid base. The function of the megapixel is only to increase the resolution of the pictures.

Accessories


The accessories of camera include a camera case, memory card and a battery. After buying a camera you need a memory card. Scan disc 8 GB memory card is a good choice for an average price range of memory card. The price is within everyone’s means and its performance and stability is also better. In the market it would be available within the price range of RS 800. This comes along with a five year warranty. Among all the brands that are available in the market now this card is very popular among the users. Moreover, it would be a good idea to buy a card reader or a data cable too for this would come in handy while transferring image to and fro from one device to another. It is worthwhile to mention here that you may get memory cards of other different brands from the online sites within a very cheaper rate but according to experts it would be better to avoid buying these online.

You also need a camera case so that your camera gets protection from water, heat, dust and jerks. Besides, it also helps you to carry your camera properly.

Zoom cameras


The additional good feature of a zoom camera is its ability to zoom. There are two types of zoom, that is, optical zoom and digital zoom . Optical zoom helps to see a distant object much closer. A camera with the power of 5x zoom can be called an average zoom camera. Objects that are nearby can be viewed bigger with the digital zoom. This is possible because the digital zoom works with the optical zoom to produce bigger images of nearby objects.

Tips for buying a new camera


1) Before buying a new camera of your choice make sure to go through its reviews available in magazines and online.

2) If required you may even discuss about it with an experienced photographer before finally buying a particular camera of your choice.

3) Never rely on the advertisements of different brands of cameras alone and do your research properly and only after getting all the required specifications you may invest on it.

4) Camera with higher megapixels will fit only fewer photos on the memory card.

5) There are cameras that do not need computer for connection with printers. These cameras can directly connect with printers with cable or infrared.

6) Always buy a camera that has a manufacturer’s warranty. If may cost you a bit more but then it will save you from a lot of pain in the future.

7) For accidental losses like theft or damage like dropping down your camera there is no warranty available. In this case you may include your expensive camera with your home insurance policy by having a discussion with your insurance company.

8) Avoid buying cameras from those stores which hesitate to give manufacturer’s warranty. These stores may be indulged with selling second hand or refurbished goods to the customers.

9) Buying small cameras has its own advantages like they are very easy to take along anywhere and they are very light in weight. In terms of quality they can even overtake some high priced bigger and bulky cameras.

10) If you are interested in doing photography in the night or dark then consider buying those cameras which provide these special features like special night scene mode etc.

My top three choices


Though there are a wide range of products available in the market, I have personally chosen these three to fit the requirement according to one’s budget. This may help you to choose one according to you need. The prices along with some specifications are as given below:

I) Cannon Power shot A3 400 IS – 16 megapixels, 5x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom, Price- RS 6500 to RS 6700

II) Nikon cool pix L 810 – 26x optical zoom, Landscape or for shooting small distance object It is perfect. The smart portray feature will give you smile timer, red eye fix and screen softening. Its price is around RS 14,900.

III) Sony digital SLT —Price is around RS 30,000. There is 7 fps continuous shooting with auto focus. 16.2 megapixels CMOS sensor and 15 point auto focus system.

When we are going to buy anything it is our responsibility to quay in safe. In the market there are many things which has numerous brand. Most of the people select a product by seeing in the advertisement or information from others. If we are using it for the first time then we don''t know the features about that product. Before buying camera or any other electronic product we have to ask the retailer for warranty cards. So if the product may got any damage then we can came back it with to that retailer but most of the people don''t ask for any warranty cards it will cause a great fail about that product. Don''t buy anything with the help of advertisement because advertisement will cheat us most of the cases there is no much features or specification for a product but in the advertisement it is mentioning it like a super natural product so don''t be cheated in it. A very good information and nice article which has more valuable points. Keep it up.
