We all like to take pictures of our collections – either to share or for insurance purposes. However, finding a good digital camera from the vast number available is not always easy.
What are 14 Requirements of a good digital camera?
- Small but not so small that it can’t easily be held
- Have a good sized LCD viewer
- Easy to turn on/off (slide switch)
- Tripod mountable
- Memory stick preferred
- Internal memory of 8+ Gigs
- Mega pixels of 10+
- ‘Steady Shot’ feature
- Touch screen controls
- Zoom – ‘5 power’
- Metal case
- Movie mode
- Micro setting for details
The only camera I have found to date that meets all of the above requirements is the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC T700. This camera is easy to operate while switching from one mode to another is simple with the touch screen feature. Touch….touch….touch and you’re ready to go.
I have used other digital cameras but have found that the Sony Cyber-Shot far excels what one needs to take a good, clear picture – day or night. This camera will be liked by both beginners and experienced photographers.
Once you have pictures of your collection, store them ono a CD or memory stick to keep as a record for insurance purposes. For extra safety, keep a copy offsite in your safety deposit box or business safe.
