A Practical Guide To Digital Cameras

Avoid buyer’s remorse…

Pay with a tweet to get this impartial guide to choosing a digital camera. Find out what to look out for in a camera and how to test the features before you buy.

I don’t suggest any brands. In fact, I hardly mention brands at all – just what to look out for with ANY camera.

You will find the download link at the bottom of the article.


  1. Sure could have used a guide like that back in 2004, when we bought our very first! I didn’t know the difference between optical and digital zoom, for starters. It all happened too fast, and I think the sales argument that you got a nice printer with it, did the thing for me. When I’d upwrapped it, I started to look for the ‘tulip’ that I’d seen on the work camera (!) … tulip, meaning the macro setting on the dial 🙂


  2. Very well written and, well, practical! Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge with us. I’m one of those who made the switch from a large camera to small and while I miss the 18x optical zoom, it is the camera that I have with me. 🙂


    1. Thanks Jen,

      I take the little micro 4/3 Olympus with me a lot more than I take the Nikon with me. Were it not for the occasional need for the reach of the 450mm equivalent lens on the Nikon, I would use it even less.
