Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between an SLR, Mirrorless and Compact cameras?
ASLRs and Mirrorless cameras are both powerful cameras with changable lenses for a large amount of flexibility. Mirrorless cameras tend to be smaller and lighter than SLRs (because they don't have to include a mirror to bounce light onto the sensor) but are not quite as powerful.

Compact cameras are small fixed-lens cameras meant for casual photography and everyday carry. In previous generations compact cameras were significantly less powerful than other types, but modern variants are almost as powerful as SLRs.
QWhat is the difference between optical and digital zoom?
AOptical zoom uses the hardware of the camera to physically move the lenses, enlarging the captured picture. Digital zoom uses software to further enlarge the picture. This means digital zooms can go far beyond the range of optical zooms, but the quality is much worse, and degrades sharply as the image is zoomed in.
QWhat is an 'image stabiliser'?
AAn image stabiliser detects and compensates for small judders and shakes while filming, meaning the resulting images are far smoother and still.
QWhy is a big sensor size important?
AA larger optical sensor produces better quality images, because more light can be brought into the lens at once, This leads to larger, more highly-detailed photos.
QWhat is GPS function on a camera?
AGPS allows the camera to tag each photo with exactly where it was taken.
QWhat is the difference between 'waterproof' and 'water resistant'?
AThere is a small but important difference between waterPROOF and water RESISTANT - waterproof means that the camera can be submerged underwater for an extended amount of time with no adverse effects. Water resistant means that the camera can suffer limited exposure to water without any problems - normally this is limited to heavy rain or liquid splashes, not total immersion.
QWhat are the benefits of instant cameras?
AInstant cameras have been seeing a revival in recent years - modern versions work similar to the classic Polaroid cameras, but use modern thermal-reactive paper. They allow immediate printing of photos when out and about - perfect for parties! However the paper is expensive to buy, and you can easily blast through a pack of 10 shots very quickly.

Everyday Photography

Camera phones have given us the ability to always have a camera within easy reach, but many people still prefer to carry an actual proper camera around with them - it allows for far better quality photos, and you have a far greater degree of control over the photo you take.

When ranking cameras to use everyday, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.

How to Choose a Digital Camera That is Good for Everyday Photography

Maximum Image Resolution

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Image resolution is a measurement of how detailed the photos taken by the camera are. A higher resolution means a single image is comprised of more pixels, leading to greater detail. This is important with a landscape cameras, since it allows all the detail from the landscape to be picked out in greater clarity, allowing for a far more visually impressive shot, rather than just a blur of green hills and blue skies.

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

Weight is important for an everyday camera, since you'll be carrying it around with you a lot. Therefore a lighter camera means it'll be less of a chore to lug around.

Battery Life

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

If you're out and about with your camera, you don't want to be running out of battery and miss the perfect shot when it comes up. Therefore a bigger battery life means more shots before you need to recharge the battery.

Vari-Angle LCD Display

A 'vari-angle display' on a digital camera means that the display can be adjusted so it can be viewed effectively from many different angles.

A vari-angle LCD display means that the camera display is hinged, and can be tilted to allow you to view the screen while holding the camera at odd angles, such as very low to the ground or up above your head. This allows you to explore more inventive angles to get the perfect shot when you're out with your camera.

Face Detection

Face detection is a system to automatically detect that a face is in the shot, and focus the camera on the centre of that face.

Facial detection can pick out specific faces in a photo, pulling the focus of the picture to them. This can be helpful in everyday shooting, since it makes sure that the human element of your shots will always be in full focus.
