Buying a camera mainly depends on the six elements
- Jul 10, 2018 -

The main reason for buying a camera is to look at the "six elements": in order: use, price, pixel, economy, appearance and function, brand, let Xiaobian read it for everyone.

1. Use: According to the performance characteristics of different products, digital cameras can be divided into home, quasi-professional and professional cameras. Xiaobian feels that for the mass users, we have not studied professional photography knowledge, nor are we experienced photographers. Cameras are usually used for some daily shooting, so there is no need to choose the so-called high-end products, card cameras are enough.

2, the price: For the price, Xiao Bian recommended that home DC cameras do not buy more than 2,000 yuan, for the consideration of cost performance, more than 2000 yuan DC camera may have some performance spillovers. Moreover, for the general working-class families, the price within 2000 yuan is relatively easy to accept. After all, the role of digital cameras in the family is still very simple. When you are traveling, take a commemorative photo, take a family portrait when you are at a family gathering, and certainly no one will take the DC on the street every day to shoot flowers and grass, blue sky and white clouds. Therefore, the economical and practical type is the main purpose of the home camera.

3. Brand: After determining the budget, you can consider which brand to buy. For the brand, Canon, Nikon and Sony are the three giants in the camera market, with the highest market share, but this does not mean that other brands do not. Ok, Olympus, Panasonic, Casio and other brands are also very popular in the card camera market. In fact, any brand may have its own top products, there will be a failure, buy a camera or to see what is best for you. In terms of brand, the domestic market is mainly China, Japan, the United States, and South Korea, domestic (Lenovo, BenQ, Polaroid, Zhongheng, etc.), Japanese (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Ricoh) Etc.), American (Kodak), Korean (Samsung). Sometimes it is divided into first-line (Canon, Nikon, Sony), second-line (Olympus, Fuji, Panasonic, Casio, Ricoh, Kodak, Samsung, etc.) and third-line brands based on brand awareness and market share. Xiao Bian believes that choosing a camera, the brand is still more important, after all, this is not only related to product quality, but also a series of services such as after-sales, so the big brand is always reliable.

4, pixels: Many friends who are not very familiar with the camera often pay attention to how big the pixels are when buying a camera, and many merchants often use the characteristics of consumers to pursue high pixel and sell it. In fact, for the average family. In terms of demand, too high a pixel does not have much practical significance. In general, 3 million pixels can wash 6-inch photos, 4 million pixels can easily output A4 format photos, so the concept of pixels is only the range of processing and processing capacity, not the higher the pixel it is good. Some digital camera manufacturers put a very high pixel on a small CCD, which sounds very high in pixels. In fact, the image quality is not as good as the average 2 million or even 1 million pixel camera. Nowadays, with the reduction of camera cost, more than 1,000 digital cameras can basically have more than 10 million pixels, which is enough for users' needs.

5. Economics: The so-called economical saying is to save money. So where can digital cameras save money? Naturally, it is an accessory. It mainly uses batteries and memory cards. Card cameras generally use large-size LCD screens for framing. Electronic viewfinders naturally consume more power than optical viewfinders. Most of the card cameras on the market use lithium batteries, and cameras with AA batteries are basically not found. In general, a lithium battery can take about 200 photos. The memory card can be divided into XD card, memory stick, SD card, MMC card, CF card, SM card, etc. Different models of cameras need to be equipped with different types of memory cards. For example, Sony cameras generally need to be equipped with a memory stick. Olympus generally needs to be equipped with an XD card. Canon usually has a CF card, and most cameras are equipped with an SD card. Among them, XD card and memory stick are two kinds of memory cards which are relatively expensive, and SD card is becoming the mainstream storage medium today with the characteristics of high speed and low price.

6. Appearance and function: Xiaobian decided to put the appearance on the final consideration because it is entirely based on personal preference. Female users tend to prefer smaller and brighter colors, such as Canon IXUS series and Nikon S series. The average male user prefers to be thicker. In terms of functions, it generally refers to the presence or absence of manual control, the number of optional modes, the dynamic image format, and whether it is time-limited, recording, and other functions such as MP3. In this case, it should be taken seriously whether manual functions are required. The operation of manual functions requires certain skills and knowledge. Reasonable use can certainly produce better films than cameras without manual. However, home cameras offer a wide range of optional modes and do not have to be manual.
