Digital cameras are becoming extremely popular in India with each passing year. The days when everyone owned a film camera are now becoming passé. It is worthwhile to examine how this trend has become popular in the recent times.
Not many years ago, film cameras dominated the scene in India. The 35 mm format was especially popular and loads of people would be clicking away at literally everything that stands on earth and flies in the sky. Professionals swore by their 35 mm SLRs while amateurs would be more than happy with their point and shoot 35 mm cameras.
Happy and not-so-happy exposures would end up at the film-processing centre in the friendly Indian neighbourhood where they would be developed and printed as per the orders of the client. With the growing popularity of 35 mm film cameras, other formats such as the 110-format camera also became popular.
However, introduction of digital cameras in India have changed customer fancies in a relatively short period. Many companies like Casio, Panasonic, Nikon, Fuji, and Pentax have introduced digital SLRs and point-and-shoot pocket sized digital cameras in the market. These cameras have proved immensely popular with professionals and amateurs alike.
One of the main reasons for the popularity of digital cameras is they avoid the recurring cost of film and printing costs. Although film is a better medium for higher end professional work, at a lesser level, digital cameras provide similar results to film cameras.
Digital cameras store the picture information in a readable and reusable card reader, which is easily downloadable to a computer for further management and use. In addition, common blemishes and errors that amateurs make can be removed using software such as Photoshop®. Regular prints are also possible from these memory cards using modern technology.
Given the technology and the pace of the market in present times, a range of cameras are now available in the market costing from a few thousand rupees to a few lakhs. It is surely intimidating to try to learn which camera can be the right one for you. Follow the following points to determine which digital camera will suit you the most.
Finally, make sure that you keep good care of it in the days to come. Ensure that no grime settles on it. Always wipe the camera with a clean cloth before you store it away after use. A good idea is to put a small pouch of silica gel desiccant to absorb the moisture. This will prevent moisture related damage to your precious instrument.
A bit of advice, never attempt to repair the camera yourself. There have been many cases where people have repented for their not-so-clever decision to do so. That is all! Make your pick as we wish wishing happy clicking always in the future.
