  • Why should I care about pixels?

    Many people believe, "The more pixels a camera has, the sharper and smoother the images are". While this may have some truth to it, pixels really relate to the size you can print or display an image. If you only want to have a photo-quality 4" x 6" print, you usually require a camera with a little more than a 4 million pixels, or 4 megapixels. An 8" x 10" print requires at least 5 megapixels. And with a 7-megapixel camera, you can easily make 11" x 14" prints.

  • What's the right camera size for me?

    There are pretty much three options here: an ultra-compact zoom, a compact zoom or a digital SLR.

  • How does storage impact my picture-taking experience?

    There are Compact Flash TM cards for DSLR cameras, Sony Memory Stick Duo for Sony Cameras, XD Card for Fuji & Olympus cameras and by far the most popular and best value for money - the Secure Digital Card (SD) which fits camera brands such as Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Casio, and Samsung.

  • How important is the lens?

    Of obvious significance is the lens that the digital camera uses. Many optical manufacturers use lens designed to meet the higher requirements of digital photography. It is important that the camera you buy has a lens that will deliver clear, sharp, and colourful images.

  • Are there any other features I should consider?

    These are the basic things to look out for and decide upon. And of course there are many other things that can affect your decision now that technology has come so far. Features like click to capture speed are important as are number of shots from a battery charge. Most compact cameras offer movie capability at varying quality and capacity.

  • What is the difference between 1080i and 1080p?

    A video camera records by scanning an image in either an interlaced (i) or progressive (p) method. All video cameras scan from top to bottom, however, the progressive method scans each line in turn from top to bottom. Interlaced scans every second line from top to bottom, before going back and scanning each line in between. As a result, footage recorded at 1080p will result in smoother playback.

  • What is a bitrate?

    A bitrate is a level of compression. Image quality is better when recorded at a higher bitrate as it is less compressed and therefore retains a higher level of detail. The less compression obviously results in less recording time as it will require larger storage space.

  • What are the different recording mediums?

    Video footage needs to be stored and different cameras have different mediums to do this. These include: Hard Disk Drive (HDD), Flash Memory, Memory Card, Mini DV. Hard Disk Drives have the largest capacity in terms of storage. Flash Memory and cards are solid state and therefore less susceptible to shock and temperature in comparison. Mini DV has no compression but is more time consuming to transfer.

  • How much can I record per gigabyte?

    A rule of thumb is that in Standard Definition 4 gigabytes will provide 1 hour's worth of footage. For High Definition 4 gigabytes would equate to 15-20 minutes.

  • How do I transfer my footage to my computer?

    Current video cameras are all supplied with a USB cable that can connect to your PC (With the exception of cameras that record to Mini DV) and can be imported using the software provided.
