A point-and-shoot camera is easy to use, usually small and light enough to take anywhere and is able to take sharp, well-exposed photographs under almost any lighting conditions for both Web and print applications, without your having to think too much before pressing the shutter button.
There are a number of reasons and advantages for choosing to shoot with wider-aperture lenses. Included are the ability to capture sharp, low-light imagery at slower shutter speeds, quicker autofocus and exposure response times—which in turn reduce shutter lag times—and the option to capture your subject in a narrow, selective band of focus.
Back in the 1960s there was a car called the Amphicar, which as its name suggested, was a car and a boat, depending on whether you were tooling up the boulevard or up the canal. Though it was designed and manufactured in Germany, the engine and electrical system of these four-seater convertibles was English, which in itself should have served as a red flag for anyone considering one.
The ability to dial in ISO sensitivities in the five- to six-figure range in 1/3-stop increments is pretty heady stuff. With the exception of some of the highest ISO ratings, the image quality of the resulting imagery remains surprisingly decent and is equal to or better than the image quality of the fastest film stocks.
Image stabilization, or “vibration reduction,” “O.I.S.,” Optical SteadyShot, SR, VC, VR, MegaOIS, and other equally catchy monikers, are technologies that enable photographers to take pictures under lighting conditions that once upon a time would have been considered too iffy for capturing sharp still images.
When qualifying a photograph as being good, amazing, strong, or merely so-so, one of the main criteria for giving a thumbs up or thumbs down to a photo has to do with the composition of the picture and how well the subject fills the frame.
The three-dimensional images captured by a Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 Digital Camera are best appreciated when the camera is attached by HDMI cable to a 3D TV viewed with LCD shutter glasses, but what if you want to see the pictures on a computer while you’re wearing anaglyphic glasses?
Super zooms, a breed of cameras that bridge the gap between pocket sized point-and-shoot digicams and far more able DSLRs, have a lot going for them if your idea of the perfect camera is one that offers a ridiculously broad focal range, pro-style functionality with a comfortable form factor that’s small enough (3.3 x 4.6 x 4.1”) and light enough (17.5 oz) to pack along no matter where you’re going.
Enough about Angry Birds already! Real birds don’t strap themselves into slingshots, as any birdwatcher, a.k.a. birder, will tell you. They know because they observe the chirpy critters in the wild or in urban parks. They spy on flocks through binoculars. They snap pictures; they take notes. High-tech birders can think of better uses for their mobile screens than playing games.
Sony has introduced newly enhanced versions of their top-of-the-line Cyber-shot digicams—the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V and DSC-HX9V—both of which contain a new 16.2MP back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor and a list of technical tricks that not too long ago would have been considered pure Voodoo.
Olympus has introduced several new lines of point-and-shoot digicams designed to complement a number of user needs and budget parameters. And if that's not enough, each one of them is available in a choice of colors.
Despite the classic magnesium-alloy body and set of dial controls, the Fujifilm FinePix X100 isn’t made for cranking film. The X100 is a highly advanced APS-C digital camera containing what the company calls the world’s first hybrid viewfinder.
Canon has just announced four new additions to its renowned PowerShot lineup. Included in the new quartet are three new ELPH-series digicams and a new SX-series PowerShot camera, each of which is designed around the same 12.1MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor.
Not long ago, point-and-shoot cameras had zoom lenses that seldom went beyond the optical range of a 35-105mm lens on a conventional 35mm camera. Not so anymore. Thanks to numerous advancements in optical technologies, digicams now feature 8x to 14x zooms that despite their 20 -something to 200-300mm-plus focal ranges, still slip easily into your pocket.
