    Digital Camera Buying Guide

    Since there has been a great increase of Clubsnap members asking for assistance on choosing a Digital Camera, i've decided to come out with a short write up that will help the person him/herself determind which is the most suitable camera for them.

    First of, before you post, asking for recommandation, it would help if you knew these details so that those who wish to come forward with their recommandation can do so with your requirements in mind.

    In no order of particular importance;

    01. Budget?
    02. Megapixel count?
    03. Optical zoom factor?
    04. Size?
    05. Type of batteries used?
    06. Weight?
    07. Able to mount lenses/filters?
    08. Manual controls required?
    09. Auto-Focus Speed?
    10. What kind of pictures are you hoping to take?

    These are just a few basic factors that usually governs the choices of new DC buyer but it's by no means complete. If you have a requirement that isn't stated above, feel free to include it in your own posting.

    After deciding which are the more crucial factors, the next time is to narow down you field of choice. This where you post to ask for recommandations as well, opinion of various makes and models if you already have some in mind.

    Do realise that here is no such thing as a perfect camera because each will have it's pros and cons and it's up to you, as the buyer to see what you can or canot live with. After reading the recommandations and narrowing down your choices, it will be helpful if you were to go down to a camera shop of your own preference or choice to try out these cameras and see if it's abilities lives up to your expectations.

    Note: This is not a definitive guide, but at least, it will help you narrow down your options.
