Cameras FAQ

Questions and Answers:

Many people consider the local camera store or large electronics retailer the only solution to purchasing a digital camera. Today, purchasing digital cameras online provides more options than ever before. How does the online camera market work versus the conventional camera store? InfoFAQ has compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions when purchasing digital cameras online.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cameras Online

What do I need to be aware of when shopping for a digital camera online?

The most important thing to be aware of is that digital camera’s are sophisticated devices with a multiplicity of features. You really need to understand the different product features and options in order to make an educated decision.

Is the lowest priced digital camera a good deal?

Be very careful when shopping for a digital camera if you are just looking for the lowest price. You will be able to find a low priced digital camera, but you may find that you wish you had spent a little (or a lot) more to get the features you now wish you had. Because digital camera’s can be very expensive, it is important to make a list of the minimum features you want and then compare prices on models that have that minimum functionality.

Do I need special software to connect my digital camera to my computer?

In some cases the digital camera will require some driver software to be used with your computer for uploading pictures. Read the product information to see if a driver or software is required. Many digital cameras do come with some kind of photo album software for managing your pictures.

How do digital cameras connect to my PC?

Most digital cameras will have a USB cable connection that you can use to plug it into your computer and upload your images.

How do I print out photos that I took on my digital camera?

You can probably print your digital pictures on your existing printer. Color printers work best, especially if you want color prints. You can also use special glossy photo paper to get better results that look like regular developed film pictures.

Do I need a special printer to print photos from my digital camera?

Today there are some color printers that are designed specifically for printing color photos. Some of these will connect directly to your digital camera to print our photos. These types of printers will cost more, and most color printers will print good enough quality photos for you to be happy with them. Try using glossy photo paper for better results.

Are there better deals on older model digital camera’s or discontinued models?

Often times you can find better deals on last years model digital camera or on discontinued models. Just be aware that the technology in this type of product is advancing rapidly, so that you may prefer to pay a little more for a much better camera that is state of the art. Prices will also continue to come down on these digital cameras so that you get more bang for your buck with each passing year.

Why is the memory size important for digital cameras?

Since digital cameras store their pictures using computer memory, the number of pictures that the camera can take at one time is limited by the memory space. The higher the resolution of the pictures you take, the fewer that the camera will hold. Some digital cameras will use a standard or optional memory stick, and by upgrading these to a larger size you can store more pictures in your camera.

Is optical zoom better than digital zoom?

Yes, optical zoom is a more advanced feature and produces better quality than just digital zoom alone. Optical zoom uses the lens of the camera to get close ups, whereas digital zoom uses the same lens input but just enlarges the center portion digitally, so you lose some resolution that you could have captured with optical zoom.

Can a digital camera also shoot movies?

Today most digital cameras can shoot a movie scene, but only short sequences. The main limitation here is the memory size, so you can expect to shoot longer movie sequences if the camera has larger memory. This feature is mostly used for short videos that you want to put on a website.

Do all digital cameras have a viewing aperture and a monitor screen?

The viewing aperture is the little window that you look through on a camera to take a picture, and today not all digital cameras have this. Many will have just an LCD Monitor that you must look at to see what picture you are about to take. A lot of cameras will have both a target aperture and an LCD Display.
