Other than pixels look for optical zoom...more the optical zoom better it will be. Optical zoom give you better quality pictures compared to digital zoom.

My comments are based on experience:

Pixelwise, the companies are making a lot of money highlighting this point. But for me any Digicam with 5 mega pixels serves the purpose. Even cameras from some companies with 3 megapixels have very good results. Don't go for 7-8 megapixels ones as you'll end up maying more for same quality pictures.

As Shamsher mentioned, look for optical zoom. Go for a camera with atleast 5-6X optical zoom. Digital zoom is just another feature. It doesn't do much. It's a feature to attact customers.

Go for a camera with AA type of batteries. These days companies offer charger and batteries with cameras. The advantage of AA batteries is that they are easily available in case u run out of power. Also, you should look for rechargable AA battries with atleast 2000 mAh...the more...the better!

Go for a digicam which has both LCD screen and viewfinder. Viewfinder helps when you want the battery to run for longer hours.

Finally the companies, Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta..they all are good. I would rate Nikon & Canon at the top. Sony is my least favorable brand for digicams...they may be champions in camcorder ranges but not in digicams.

Pixelwise,

I came across one Dig camera of Nikon, I have seen its results and they are awesome. One of my friend is using it.

Its a good value for money

I have used Nikon and Canon both..Though Nikon seems to be having more features, photo quality of a Canon is better..As Navin mentioned, buy the one with AA batteries if you dont want to worry about depleted batteries..

Buying from US would be 4-5 k cheaper but only problem might be with warranty support if you stay in India..Anyway, if you want to buy through US, check the best deals on deals2buy.com and order online. Its safe and foolproof as all online websites and stores are reputed..

And don't forget to check the reviews for cameras on http://www.steves-digicams.com/ One of the best site with detailed review of all functions in a camera..

Hi once again :)
U all helped me in selecting a digi cam. Now i have the camera n need ur help in knowing some terms n deciding about the add ons. I know some but wanna know technically also :

1) NiHM ( nickel metal hydride) Battery
2) Alkaline battery
3) Lithium coin battey
4) Power adaptor
Which one i shud buy ?
5) Macro mode
6) Red eye reduction
7) SD card
8) Multimedia memory card
Difference in 7 & 8.
Is the water proof cover really effective ? or shud i go for the normal cover ?

Camera- Canon Power Shot A 530
Its really gud for a starter. 5 MP, 4x zoom, 1 hr video recording with voice (Acc to the frame), sound recording n much more :):)

1) NiHM ( nickel metal hydride) Battery
2) Alkaline battery
3) Lithium coin battey
4) Power adaptor
Which one i shud buy ?

NiMh is normally rechargeable battery and can be resused 1000's of time. Don't waste ur money in alkaline battery.. Lithium ion battery is for smaller cameras, the one you bought doesn't uses that.. What about power adapter?

If possible, buy Sony BCG-34HE4 Super-Quick Worldwide Battery charger. Its worldwide voltage compliant and works really good. Not sure if its avl. in delhi..or buy similar battery chargers alongwith rechargeable NiMh batteries..

5) Macro mode
6) Red eye reduction
7) SD card
8) Multimedia memory card
Difference in 7 & 8.

SD and MMC are different technologies of storing memory. Your camera uses SD Card which is one of the popular ones.

Is the water proof cover really effective ? or shud i go for the normal cover ?

Depends on you if your are fond of underwater photography or clicking pics while its raining..

waise you can go for double lens, because sometimes you want to cover a large area in picture but you cannt because ther is not much space to move back and cover maximum (this comes handy in crowded places).

Kodak V570 is one camera having this feature and I have used it. Its simply awesome in terms of results. It also has on camera digital filters (but wonnt suggest going for that if you are just an amateur)

I wonder whether you got a cam or not? Cuz so many sweet replies you got here in the end, you have not replied back which one you pick :)

Well now about your querry i believe Prashant bhai had beautifully explained about battery so i'll skip.

About Macro Mode cant get your point !!

About Red eye reduction
Normally this feature in camera works during nights. When the photographer shoots the snap in night with the help of flashlights resulting in a red eye appearance of the eye on the photo.

How it happen ? If you shine a flashlights in the person's eye at night, you dont see any sort of reflection. The flash on the camera is bright enough however cause a reflection off of the retina of the eye is what you see red colour from the blood vessels nourishing the eye.

Now How camera works to reduce the Red Eye Reduction? As you might have notice in night when we take snaps the camera flash twice,once right before taken the snap and then again to actually take the snap. The first flash helps the people's pupil to contract reducing red eye, the other flash does the trick to turn on all the lights in the room which also contracts the pupils, thus it helps in reduction of RED EYE factor in the actual snap you had taken.

About Diff in SD and MMC card !!

As there is not much difference among the two but Secure Digital cards is always the user's best choice . As SD cards are faster in the speed compare to MMC cards it has got he capacity of being 4 times as fast as MMC.
SD can transfer the data upto 10MB per sec where as MMC can transfer data at 2.5MB per second.
SD got the write protection feature as it has a small switch on the side of card which has locked and unlocked setings. If you locked position then no one can write to the card and erase the data from the card where as MMC aint have such feature.
SD card is more durable and resistant to electro static discharge than MMC.

About water proof cover really effective !!
Try to avoid taking snaps in water there are specifically design camera's for under water and raining water photography available in market pls.

Also notice make sure your camera dont fall from your hands too. Service Support in India is vulnerable for such flashy cams. It costs your bill much than your expectation mind you !!

Humm so your choice is Canon A-530 !!

Good one dont get confused its a good piece for starter .
As many people will recommend their own choice but the bottom line is too many to choose which one is the best ?? No one has the answer yet ..as the final Rule is if your Budget is very high you will get the slimmest, more mega pixels resultin good good quality of pixs ...on .. on ... on..

Start exploring your world now :):)

I mentioned it that i have the camera now n need help in deciding Add ons. Add ons can only be bought after having the Camera :D

Service support - I cant even avail the benefit of warranty as i bought it from Virginia so extra dhyan to rakhna padega :D

U very beautifully explained the diff between SD n MMC. Tell me 1 more thing, Is it possible to use a SD card in a cell phone ? I have Sony Ericsson K 750i, using 512 MB MMC, when i went for the hunt, shop keeper said cells only support MMCs.
Yeah, Prashant explained very clearly but i am still confused :confused: about the use of these two. If i want to use camera portably then batteries & if doing some work indoor; lyk editing, transferring pics ; then adaptor, Adaptor is same as the cell phone charger. Aisa hi kuch hai kya ?
I wanted to know wat exactly this Macro mode is ?

Secure Digital cards aka "Mini-SD cards" can be used in cell phones too.Humm i cant say about yur phone as I have never used any GSM phones in my life, it depends on the compatibility of slots available on the phones. Normally smart phones and PDA's got the options of SD cards as well as MMC cards.

Humm about the Adaptor bulls eye :) yep it is same as the cell charger. Hey you can see in your cam three I/O ports are available one to connect cam to TV set , second one is USB port to connect printer or scanner or computer and the last one is DC input jack for optional power supply through that you can charge your cell while editing, transferring snaps bla bla ....:):)

Humm yeh Macro mode kya hai ...??? well cant say if I'm wrong as i am shooting the arrow in the air let see if it hits the target.

Macro Mode is somewhat related lens focusing range i believe so.

A very gud studio n camera seller today told me that duracell doesnt manufacture NiMH batteries n chargers. He suggested me Camelion n Uniross.

Camelion charger with 4 batt of 2200 mAH for Rs 700
Uniross charger with 4 batt of 2300 mAH for Rs 885

I am not a professional so big back up is not required so wat abt mAH, 1800 wud be fine kya ?

For SD card he suggested some MCC; 256 MB for Rs 1200
I was planning for Sandisc, Transcend or Kingston...

Okay now i wud go for the labels u suggested :)

pnauhwar21
December 23rd, 2006, 02:01 AM
Whichever battery charger you buy, make sure it has 'automatic cut-off for excessive temperature and/or voltage' else you will have to keep on checking when your batteries are charged and there is danger of batteries getting overcharged..Don't go with Timer-based cut-off chargers.

Similarly, don't buy the 15 or 30 min chargers, they reduce the life of batteries..In my earlier post I had mentioned Sony charger which comes with 4 rechargeable batteries, try finding that if possible..worth the money and not too costly..I got it for 32$ from amazon.com

For SD card, buy atleast 1gig card with higher speed so that you can create Videos too..kingston, sandisk are good..Never heard the brand names which that shopkeeper is telling :rolleyes: might be some local brands though everything in US is also China made :)

You pls visit nearby SONY WORLD outlets and ask for NiMH batteries.
Dont go here and there and take advice of very good studio and camera seller:) Camelon and Uniross brands are good and cost effective for proffesional studio photographers.Mind you 2300 mAH means 2300 MilliAmps for one hour. The total amount of energy a battery can store.The larger this number longer the battery life and the cost increases at same time.

Humm for SD cards Transcend is good choice but the price you mention is too much. There is lot of margin in this category so pls bargin as much as you can :):)

Hi Jitender,

Plz do clear your ideas.

Mini DV is latestís Hi-8 Tape going Out.

Never go for optical stoarge for critical movies,
IInd with DVD editing movie is very-2 toughs....
You canít delete a shooted BAD shot( When i was in US I shooted some, clip of swimming pool, but later with rewind function I over write, on my Mini_DV camcorder).

And mini DV movie store as AVI form means no compression in future you can convert in required format.. that is not possible with DVD.
Mini-Dv can store upto 1hour & 30 Minute recording.. on DVD its limited to 30 minutes. to store 2 hours recording you need 4 black DVD.. and handing DVD an another senstice job.... if any scratch on DVD mean all movie gone....
Now DVD writing is sensitive burning process, any jerk(that is always there in camcorder) make its small life and any big Jerk .means you may visit to service shop.

and resolution for both is Same for DVD & mini DV..
mini DV is small n form you can put on your shirt pocket(canon ZR500/600/700).


Now let talk about HDD, never go for any device that face lot jerks,, with HDD, HDD are sensitive to jerk(max. life 1-2 years, with jerks)& replace ment costly, camcorder price costly..high power consuming,,, means less running time.... On 30GB you can store 4Hours in AVI format(no compression) after that you have to copy on Desktop/laptop...and you have to compress to keep on your PC
and after that you have to over write for next storing, means you can not have master copy with you.

30Gb hdd storing equl to 4Mini-DV..

cost of one blan mini DV---100Rs..
No need to over write for further shooting just buy new.. and keep always master copy with you...




Any want more information talk to me Off Line...


Note: I used DVD & mini DV camcorders (not HDD based)

Well Amar, that was good info. As I said I have not bought handycam yet so didnt have first hand experience. My assumption for mini-dv going obsolete was on the premise that its becoming cheaper day-by-day since the new technologies viz. DVD and HDD are coming. I haven't researched much on camcorders yet as don't feel a need for it but your inputs are helpful for those planning to buy..

Nice explained !! Amar

But compression is possible and easy task in DVD than Mini DV as you can convert the required format to .VOB, Divix,Mpeg. Well now a days dual DVD are in market and it can store upto 4GB data. Third party software are available free on net to extract data from scratch DVD. Normally handycams are coming as Anti jerk technology. But yeah one need to care while shooting.

Humm resolution depends on the pixel lens!!

read all the posts , i agree with navin sir completely ! Sony is "the" brand for camcorders ( i have one sony minidv camcorder) but for digicams , CANON is the right choice .
I have cannon digital ixus 50 ! great looks and also 5 megapixel , 3X optical.
The latest in ixus series can be the best choice i believe !

and regarding megapixel hype , 5 megapixel is too too much for home use !

and abt optical zoom well for home use , 3 X is also very decent !


also better if u have speciality in night shoot and viewfinder !
