Basic Controls

When you’ve narrowed your search to a particular resolution class, you’re ready to start considering the features, controls, and designs of specific cameras. This stage of your decision centers on the specifics of what you need for the type of shooting you like to do and your personal preference for camera feel and—let’s face it—what’s cool.

Exposure Control

After resolution, the next demarcation in the digital camera market is the degree of exposure control provided by the camera. In other words, are you looking for a simple, fully-automatic snapshot camera? Or do you expect a more advanced camera with extra control? Or perhaps you don’t care about extra control and would like a snapshot camera with some extra manual controls that will let you grow into a more advanced level of photography.
