Confused about a particular aspect of digital photography? Our Digital Camera Jargon Buster has all the answers.
Digital SLR cameras have a higher specification than your average compact camera and allow you to have more creative input over the pictures you take. They are great for photographing a wide variety of subjects and put you in complete control of just about every function when taking a picture. DSLR cameras are speedy; they will switch on and load quickly, so you never miss that important moment.
Compact cameras are, as the name suggests, small and fit neatly in to your pocket or handbag. Simple to use with easy navigation you can take them anywhere and everywhere so you’ll never miss that ‘once in a lifetime’ shot.
Point and Shoot Cameras - Price range from £50
Point and Shoot cameras do exactly what they say, perfect for those moments you want to point, shoot and capture. They can also be great for photography beginners or someone using a camera for fun whilst with family and friends.
Zoom Cameras - Price range from £100
