Nowadays, one can quite confidently say that the Digital SLR cameras have won the competition in the camera market with their ever rising popularity coupled with new levels of affordability. There seems to be a notion that the SLR type of camera is the ultimate device necessary for taking good pictures – whether you’re on a vacation, having a party at your home or wish to take some family snapshots.
The truth is actually that many people which own a DLSR don’t actually use it properly, nor do they know how to. They set the camera to its automatic mode and simply point and shoot – which is really not worth the price one would have paid for such a camera. People seem to have almost forgotten about Digicams, however, they have quite a few features that should make the average consumer reconsider their camera choices.
The first is size. A digital camera will be able to easily fit into a bag, some even into the pocket of your pants. Whereas you’d have to lug around a bag filled with lenses and such for a SLR, one cannot deny the practicality of having a digicam. Next would be the issue of quality – there is a misconception that in order to take good pictures, you must have a SLR camera. False – a professional photographer might need the ridiculous amount of megapixels for their work, but for your day to day pictures and videos at home or on vacation, you will never need to change a lens or fiddle through complicated settings in order to get what you want.
