Digital cameras were first introduced hardly a decade
ago and have undergone some major changes in the
process. What once were expensive, low-quality,
functionally limited devices have now become affordable,
efficient, highly-functional cameras that often
outsell most categories of their film-based counterparts.
There are many selling points for switching from
film to digital. There are no processing or film
costs, you get the advantage of immediately viewing
just-shot images, virtually instant uploads to your
computer and the Web, quick and easy editing and
fine-tuning, and the ability to generate high-quality
photographs with almost any inkjet printer. In trying
to decide which camera is right for you, you must
keep in mind how much you're willing to spend, and
what features are most important to you. Usually,
inexpensive digital cameras generally come equipped
with fewer features. They can produce fair to good
but not excellent images. More expensive digital
cameras usually offer a long list of features, and
image quality tends to be very good or excellent.

right for you.
