In the recent times the digital camera has been the most significant discovery for the photographers all across the globe. The photographers all across the globe have only one dream and that is to click their way to glory, but the hassle of changing films and then developing the pictures in the ‘dark room’ acted as a great impediment.
With the advent of digital camera it all just changed completely. The films became redundant, the bulky lenses of the cameras were replaced by sleek (some put it as sexy) looking bodies with crystal display on the back and megapixel lenses of the camera. Instead of developing pictures, it was stored in the memory cards. Very few of you would know that the first commercially available digital camera was the immensely popular Kodak DCS-100 (with a Nikon body) that was launched in 1991. It boasted of a 1.3 MP lens with 200Mb of hard disk memory. All I can say is that today my mobile camera and memory is better than this!
Needless to say digital photography has come up a long way now and so has its marketing. People can purchase best ones , their memory sticks and other add-ons in a really easy way and for much cheaper rates. Sample this, the Kodak DCS-100 when launched in 1991 was priced at $13,000 while the latest and, may I dare say, much more effective and advanced Panasonic FZ7 costs a mere $299! But on the web and even if one goes to the high street Panasonic outlet the price would certainly be less damaging than what it was when one bought the first SLR!
Buying them is easier than clicking a photo from it! One can easily compare digital camera on the basis of their performance, price and reviews of other users and then think about buying one.
