If you’re taking your first tentative steps into the world of photography (you know beyond the endless selfies and out-of-focus party pics on your phone), you may feel a little overwhelmed with the seemingly endless choices. And the jargon. It can be daunting, we agree. Allow us to break it down and make your first ever compact camera buying experience a breeze. For starters, you’ll definitely want one that offers improved features compared to your current smartphone. This means looking out for better wide angle and zoom coverage, larger sensor sizes – allowing for sharper pictures – and motion tracking so you can snap superior quality photos even on the run.
Also consider a greater dynamic range, including low-light capabilities, which will help your pictures will look awesome even if they’re snapped in a dark space with little lighting. And finally, look out for a built-in HDR mode; this will mean you can capture balanced exposure shots in high-contrast situations. Basically, no more oddly blown out photos making you appear ghostly. If you’re after those extra special underwater holiday shots too, we suggest checking our tough compact cameras; with their waterproof qualities, they’ll definitely do the trick.
Okay, so you’re saying you’re already well-versed in the art of photography and used to working with full-frame digital cameras and DSLR models. Why buy a compact camera? The answer is simple: there are occasions where effortless portability is key. With their lightweight designs, compact styles present excellent photo-taking capabilities without the bulk of more specialist kit.
