Point and shoot digital cameras – why I like using them

I have been a dreamer throughout my life. I had this dream to be a photographer whose photo-shoots and exhibitions would take the world by surprise. Well, after spending 48 years of my life as a banker I decided to give my best shot on my most cherished reverie to be a photographer.


I must confess that even though I always had this dream, but I had no clue about which is the best camera available today. So I took advice of my grandson who is a gadget guru. He advised me to buy the best point and shoot camera for wildlife if this is where I will be using it. I was very confident about his suggestion so I went ahead and got this amazing point and shoot digital camera by Sony. I have been using it for two months now and in a position to admit that this has been one of the best decisions I have ever taken. Here are my views about why I like this camera so much.


Clear Images

I am really astonished by the clarity of images that I am able to shoot. The camera is digital so it captures the real colors.  This point and blank camera completely complements my vision of the scene I want to capture. I just get images as I want them with no distortion at all. Yeah! The good count of megapixels does the trick for me and I get all the credit for outstanding clicks.



The whole optical system provided in my point and shoot digital camera offers me another capability. I can zoom as close I want. With this advantage on my side I get highly detailed and expressive images of flowers and birds that make favorite theme of my photography.


Easy settings

I cannot control the natural light and shades. My camera gives me some great options to set the camera in a way that I manage to have amazing images in spite of limitation on external factors. I can control light sensitivity and apply special preloaded effects. The autofocus ability of the camera do wonders when I am shooting people (With camera! Of course)


LCD screen for preview.

Whatever I photograph I can have an immediate look on the results of my creativity on the LCD screen provided in my digital camera. I can delete any image that is not up to my standards and try again for  a better capture.

I am coming up with my first exhibition in the last weekend of this month. I am totally in love with my first ever point and shoot digital camera. Whether you are a professional or an amateur, I am sure that this gadget will be an excellent choice for you as well.

3 camcorder models that you might like

In the war between camcorders and DSLR, it looks like camcorders are slowly losing the battle. But that does not mean, there are no good camcorders available in the market.

I strongly believe if you are looking for video recording with a professional touch, then you need to use camcorders. Yes, DSLR is good but for the overall effect you need a good quality camcorder. Here is a list of 3 camcorders that you should consider buying.
