Mr. X needed a camera, actually a digital camera, so he logged on to an e-commerce portal, browsed the range of cameras for a minute, and placed order for one which he thought, is good for him. Within next 3 days, the courier boy appeared at Mr. X’s office and delivered the camera (of course, he first took the cash). Mr. X was more than happy and showed his latest purchase to all his colleagues. But, very soon, he got his first heart-attack when one of his colleagues told him that he had also bought a camera and that’s much better to the one, Mr. X has just bought, not just in terms of features but also price wise. When Mr. X searched the net for that camera, he got the second heart attack; the camera (that his colleague had bought) was looking such beautiful and had more features that the one he had just purchased. Make sure you are not the next Mr. X. Are you planning for a professional camera? Make sure you follow the below 5 easy tips so that you end-up buying a digital camera in India that truly meets your needs.
Friends and family can be a great resource for learning about which digital cameras work well and which don’t. Of course, you should check out Internet as well, but face-to-face opinions from people you trust and know are much better.
2. So, how will you use the camera?
If you are a nature lover, and want to shoot a lot of nature’s photos, you better opt for a camera with large zoom lens. If it’s your friends and family at parties who’ll be in most of your photos, you should look for a camera that performs well in low-light conditions. Sit for a few minutes and find out how you are going to use the camera, and then, look for the digital camera in India that fits your specific needs the best way.
3. Size Does Matter
Some people may prefer larger digital cameras that are easy to hold, while others may want to settle for a small, thin model that fits easily in a pocket or purse. So, take your time and then, grab the size that fits your hands the best.
It’s good to have a rough figure in the back of your mind; set a budget before you go out and make a buy.
5. Learn the Jargons
Photography includes a lot of jargons; if not all, you should familiarize yourself with at least a few ones. Read through a digital camera glossary for half an hour and it’s more than enough.
