Tips on Buying a Point and Shoot Camera


If you’re simply a novice photographer, you can get by without the complicated features of an SLR. You can still shoot great pictures with a mere point and shoot camera.

When buying a point and shoot, choose one with as few settings to fiddle with as possible. Those extra features will only cost you extra bucks, and will just end up useless for a newbie like you anyway. Get one with good anti-shake technology, as what most of us are concerned about are blurred pictures.

As for megapixels, yes bigger is better, but for a simple shooter, a mere 8-megapixel should suffice.

Not all point and shoot cameras are created equal, so be sure to choose well. Your wallet will thank you for it.
