Gold Coast, NSW -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/07/2012 -- Compact Cameras at CameraDirect are lighter than ever, have exceptional battery life, are packed with features and are easy to carry around. Whether one needs to travel for professional photo shoots or roaming and taking pictures in a tourist spot, a camera's size and weight are important. Modern compact cameras come with everything from optical and digital zooms, dozens of presets and modes, and even the option for taking video clips. They are pretty stylish little devices suitable to use for an enthusiastic photographer to start getting some good shots.
A compact camera isn’t just a tool for weddings or Sunday family shots; they can take some good images on their own. This is enhanced by the availability of manual settings that allow a skilled photographer to control the camera’s behaviors, but most also make some very interesting pre-sets available too. Consider that many have upwards of twenty pre-set modes that can allow some excellent photographic results within candlelight, nighttime, sporting events, and a host of other scenarios. These cameras are especially benefited from the photographer’s pre-existing knowledge about the needs of different settings too.
It is always helpful to have a compact camera in a photographer’s store of tools and equipment. Where zoom and wide-angle photography are concerned, the modern compact has a nice array of lenses built into their little frames as well. Some compact cameras go as low as 10mm to allow for a nearly fisheye wide angle image to be recorded, and others have a digital zoom of up to 12X as well. While the digital zooms are usually considered somewhat inferior to optical zooms due to their massive amounts of blur and noise, they can still be exceedingly helpful to a photographer out in the field. For decades there has been little pocket cameras that made it easy for anyone to take a relatively good photograph under a wide range of conditions. Technology, however, has made compact camera, more high-tech than ever imagined.
