With normal film photography now fading away digital photography is now taking over. It is therefore not surprising that more and more people are now using digital cameras. Digital cameras are now readily available and getting smaller. Now almost every cellphone has a camera on it. Even pens and other weird everyday items are being fitted with small digital cameras.
Just look around you right now you probably have something with a digital camera within reach. It maybe your cellphone or even your web cam, the point is you almost always have something that captures digital photographs close to you at most times of the day. Who knows very soon they might produce a bed with a digital camera so you can take yourself pictures while you sleep or even a spoon with a digital camera so you can take pictures of the inside of your mouth when you eat. Why on earth you would want to take yourself pictures in the last two mentioned situations beats me, but hey we all know that if it is remotely possible someone is bound to produce such a gizmo.
All jokes aside though, I am in love with my digital camera and whenever I go on vacation or some place fun I always take my digital camera with me. Sometimes I even carry two digital cameras with me, don't ask me why on earth I do that. Just know that I do and let's leave it at that.
Yes I know I am crazy sometimes but let's leave it at that, ok. The benefits of using a digital camera over the normal olden day cameras are many. The main one being you dont have to carry bags and bags of film inorder to take hundreds of photographs like the digital camera allows you to do. With a digital camera you just insert your digital memory card and you are set. Your digital memory card is also reusable, you just delete the pictures stored on it and take more in their place. There are also other advantages with using a digital camera over using the traditional film camera.
You can immediately look at any pictures you take on the little screen found on most digital cameras. If you do not like the photograph you can immediately delete it and take another one. Most digital cameras now come with digital zoom which allows you to zoom into your subject as much as X 10 or even more.
This allows you to take the pictures of what you really want to capture as close as your zoom will allow you to get. Yet another advantage of using a digital camera is that you do not have to wait for your pictures to be developed. You never have to wait even for the minimum time it takes to develop films now, which I think is presently one hour.With a digital camera you just simply plug it in to your computer and click a few buttons and all your photographs are transfered to your computer. Recent advances in technology now allow you to even connect your digital camera directly to your printer and have them immediately printed onto glossy picture paper that makes the photograph look like the photographs you would have developed at your local Walmart. You can immediately share these photographs with friends and family.
You can even give everyone their own copies of their favourite photographs. How about if you do not have a printer? How can you share your digital photographs that you downloaded onto your computer with friends and family? Well, you could transfer the photographs to either a CD or USB jump drive. The person you are sharing the pictures with can then take that with them and download the pictures onto their own computer or have them printed at a local photo store. However, there's an easier way to share your photos especially if you are connected to the internet. It involves using a picture sharing service to store your photographs.
How does it work? It's pretty easy if you ask me. All you have to do is register for an account, which in most cases is free. Once you have your account all you have to do is login, create an album and upload your pictures from your computer to your picture sharing account, using the tools provided in your account control panel. It looks simple, dosen't it? Well that's because it really is. Once you have your photos uploaded online you can share them with family and friends by simply sending an email. Yet again, you can do all this from the control panel.
There you have it! Have fun with your digital camera .
