10 Suggestions on Digital Camera

Recently, I read this article that gives 10 useful tips for digital camera owners and wanna-be owners alike. :D

1. End shutter lag.
End the shutter-lag by prefocusing trick (the half press trick), or get expensive SLR models. :p

2. Don’t believe the megapixel myth.
4-6 megapixel is more than enough. Lens and sensor quality are better determinants.

3. Ignore digital zoom.
Only Optical zoom matters.

4. Ditch the starter card.
The memory card that comes w/ the camera is always too small.

5. Beware the format factor.
It is obvious, but still beware. :)

6. Do your research.
Do your homework, so you know what you need/want and don’t have to buy the expansive model suggested by saleman.

7. Know your class.
Different types of users have different needs. One size of shoes won’t fit all.

8. Turn off the flash.
To take photo that is further than 8 ft, the digital camera’s flash is useless.

9. Turn on the flash.
Use it when someone’s face is in shadow.

10. Turn off the screen.
The back screen is a joke and a big power sucker. :D

I hope this can help anyone who owns and wants to own digital camera. You can find the origianl sourse here. Sorry about lack of images again, because I don’t want other people think that I am advertising from a particular company or model. :D
