Using Digital Camera

If you're going to take occasional snapshots, work on family album projects, or build a personal website, you'll probably be happy with a low resolution, entry-level digital camera. On the other hand, if you want to make really big prints (beyond 8 x 10), you'll want a model with more manual controls and a higher megapixel count.

Basic Point-and-Shoot

Entry-level digital cameras are a great solution for those who plan to share small images of medium quality and/or those who want a starter camera to help them get the hang of digital photography. These have limited manual features and a limited image resolution of usually less than 3 megapixels.

If you like more control over your photography, then you'll want a more advanced model with features like manual shooting modes, LCD, resolution of 3-5 megapixels, better lens quality, optical zoom and data ports.

In the high-end digital camera category, you'll find more emphasis on creative control. Lenses tend to be exchangeable, have optical zoom and are of higher quality; image resolution is 5 megapixels and higher; you get more professional-level controls for shooting and manipulating images.
