Digital Cameras for Beginners eBook + FREE Gift
Like its predecessor, the film camera, digital cameras have different models for different purposes. If
you are taking pictures for personal use, you can use a basic digital camera but for professional
photography, you need something more sophisticated with higher megapixels and more memory. It
imperative you choose a professional capacity digital camera if you are going to be doing
digital photography. Although as a beginner you may not see the importance of having a different
camera for professional and personal use, it is imperative. Although you could use your professional
camera for personal use as well, you do not want to cause it to wear out sooner than necessary.
Another thing with professional photography is you will have features that you may not use in
use cameras such as more capacity for videos and longer battery life. You may also find a larger
that you can place on a tripod much like the 35mm that used to be in use for professional
You have to make sure your professional digital camera can handle the types of shots you take. You
might need something different if your specialty is portraits instead of outdoor or indoor scenes.
Portraits must be more precise and have more clarity, so you have to keep that in mind when you
choose a camera for professional use. If you enjoy shooting outdoor scenes, you may be able to use
ordinary digital camera with higher megapixels instead of a professional camera.
Your choice in the type of photos you take will determine the type of camera you will need. In some
cases, you may need to buy more than one in order to have what you need for various photography
jobs. You will need to weigh each one on its own merit and determine what you need for each job. As
you work, more you will discover what you need and will be able to determine what you will need for
each job. In photography, there is never a one size fits all: remember all of the different lenses
photographers used with 35mm cameras? There is always a need for different cameras or camera
features with different types of photography. If you want to be a professional, you have to learn what
works best with each individual scene or shooting session. One of the major contributors is the
of the lighting in the area of the shooting so you must keep that in mind.
The Pros and Cons of Using a Digital Camera
Although we usually tend to think of the digital camera as the best thing since sliced bread, there are
both pros and cons with its use. Nothing is available on the market that does not have both a good
bad side, but the key is to weigh the good against the bad in order to come up with the best of both
worlds. For instance, we know the digital camera can take pictures without film, so therefore you do
have to worry about having enough film on hand when you travel. There is no need to worry about
having enough film or buying rolls that have damage and therefore damage your pictures.
We also know that with a digital camera you do not have to worry needlessly about taking a poor
picture because you can delete any that dont come out like you had hope and start again. If the
is poor, you have a chance to adjust it and take another picture. If you accidentally cut off the top of
someones head, you can delete that picture and start again. You do not have to wait until you
the film to discover that your film had damage, the lighting was poor or you cut off someones head
when you took the picture. Though not a problem in most cases, if you are travelling or
special event it can be frustrating and even disappointing to find you do not have all the shots you
On the negative side, you may find it inconvenient to have to worry constantly about having enough
memory in your camera or batteries to assure you will be able to photograph an entire event. Of
when you compare this to the cost of buying film at close to $10 a roll, batteries, and then
the film the cost is minimal. No matter how you look at it the cost of a film camera although cheaper
its initial phase far exceeds that of a digital camera. Of course, if you use the video feature of your
camera you will shorten your battery life but for still pictures, you can get quite a bit of life out of
batteries before they need replacing or recharged. Of course, you still need to recharge the camera
before each use but that is also minimal compared to the cost of operating a film camera.
The Movement from Film to Download
While younger people may not remember, those in their 30s and older can still remember when
cameras had film. Certainly, there are still cameras that rely on film, but for the most part cameras no
longer need film to take pictures. It was a difficult time when a camera needed film because you had

The first digital cameras did not cause too much of a stir because they were expensive, large and
to use. The early models had a focus more toward the professional or amateur photographer who
used to having to tote heavy photography equipment including tripods. That meant they had one
thing to carry nowfilm and flashes since digital cameras also have a built in flash instead of the
flash that powered most 35mm cameras. For a short time, one could also find a few disposable
cameras but apparently, they did not gain much popularity, probably because of their cost when
compared to a 35mm disposable camera. Most people who are looking for disposable cameras are
looking for cost, something that maybe they can give the kids for a school trip and not have to worry
they lost it.
