All About Digital Cameras

Please read a review of the camera you have or read reviews of other cameras in preparation for buying one. You'll find links to camera reviews on the right side of the DP101 page for this class.

Today in class we'll discuss the features you'll want in your camera. Even if you have a digital camera already, you may want to consider the features a new one has.

To complete this assignment just submit the type of camera you plan to use and tell me about how it measures up aginst the list of minimum requirements.

Here is a short list of what you should be looking for:
  • resolution of at least 2mb
  • adjustable controls (look for a dial that has "T" "AV" "M" "P")
  • lithium batteries are best, get an extra if you can
  • if not lithium, get a charger and 2 sets of rechargable batteries
  • removable memory card
  • camera case
  • tripod
