Credit card in hand and half way into the mall we pass bya new display - an eight mega pixel, up to 1G expandable memory,with built it mic and stereo surround, video playback capable,with 22 scenic modes kind-of-camera . And we sigh because theproducer of this amazing gadget claims that this is the bestdigital camera yet out in the market. So now we hesitate we wantthe "Best Digital Camera" right?

Of course we do so we spend a little more than we planned andreturn home happy and excited.

The trouble is our happiness doesn't last very long, after twomonths or so, there's another "best digital camera."

What you have to remember is that there will always be another"best digital camera"

Just around the corner so in making your decision on which digitalcamera to buy

there are certain factors to consider when looking for the "bestdigital camera" .

MEGAPIXELS . One of the most important features of digital camerato make it into the best digital camera category is its megapixel property. The higher the mega pixels the better the actualphotograph will come out. A mega pixel is equivalent to one millionpixels. The resolution of your image is based upon the mega pixelproperty of your camera. This means that as you enlarge the photograph,you would get more detail and less blurry colors.

LCD SIZE. The best digital camera will always have a large LCDto help you frame your subject without having to squint throughthe viewfinder. This is also helpful when reviewing your images,some cameras enable touch up and editing features with its LCD.A 1.5-inch display is average, a 2-inch LCD display is good,but the best LCD size would be 2.5 inches or higher.

ZOOM. Most digital cameras have both digital and optical zoom.A higher optical zoom is always better than a higher digitalzoom. Digital cameras are usually furnished with optical of between3x to 10x . The better the optical zoom, the higher it climbsup to the best digital camera category.

MEMORY CARD. Always make sure that your memory card is the rightone for your digital camera. There are different types of memorycard like the xD, SD and Compact Flash . These types of memorycards go with certain types of digital cameras. of course memorystorage is also up there in choosing the best digital cameras.Choose the size of memory that you need, if you're a photo junkie,you might need more than 32MB . The early Memory cards were inthe MB range but these days you can get cards in the Gigabyterange.

The key point to find the best digital camera is to find onethat will best fit you and your lifestyle. Don't just buy thelatest or the one that claims they are the best digital camerasout in the market. You wouldn't want to buy a DSLR and use itwith your home activities or family outing and have to lug itaround.

By the same rule you don't want to buy the latest point andshoot camera when you're serious about being a professional photographer.(Of course, you can use this for starters, but if you're nota novice photographer anymore, you wouldn't want to get thiskind of camera.)

Actually, the best digital camera is the one that you will enjoyand use. Not the one that you will end up leaving in its boxstuck in a draw somewhere.

Just remember the more features a camera has the more complicatedit can become and therefore the more likely it is to stay init's box instead of being used. So the best digital camera tobuy is the one you can afford and will feel comfortable usingfor all your photography.
