Digital Cameras for the most part offer resolutions from 1MP to 15+ MP, optical zoom of 2 to 10+, face recognition, red eye reduction, and tons of other features. Some digital cameras also have the ability to recording high quality videos elimiating the need for a dedicated video camcorder. The newer digital cameras offer resolution of up to 1080p recordering so the quality is very similar to HD camcorder. Most experts will agree one of the most important factor that differentiates a good digital camera picture quality is the type of lens used. This article is to inform the average consumer what to look for in a good digital camera.


Tips for finding a good quality digital camera

1) 5 to 7 Megapixel is enough for most people needs. Its a measure of how big the photo will be on your computer screen and how big you will be able to print your images. This is not a indication of how "clear" your pictures will be.
2) Look for a camera with face recognition and image stabilization. Helps to reduce blur in low light, by keeping the sensor steady.
3) Optical zoom of 5+ would be good. Digital zoom is just a sensor crop and not a real zoom. The more expensive/higher quality cameras have a high optical zoom.
4) Look for digital cameras that use SD memory. These have become more common and are getting cheaper.
5) If you are interested in taking video - look for full 1080p. Some will offer 720p or 1080i which is not quite HD quality.
6) In general, digital cameras with larger sensors (like DSLRs) will make better images
