These days, digital cameras have really taken over from traditional film-based ones so, if you are new to the market or upgrading your current model, then look no further.

Photographic quality is a key feature of any digital camera, particularly lightweight ones that have very small lenses. You can easily judge for yourself the quality of images that can be captured on each device by using the table’s star rating system. On top of this, most digital cameras also offer video capture nowadays and a similar star rating is given for this popular function, too. A good guide to the quality of images will be the number of megapixels that make up any of the photos taken.

Zooming in and out can make all the difference to your photography. Being able to take a snap without getting on top of the subject matter can help for improved images that are arranged perfectly. Each digital camera featured has the ability to zoom optically, but the amount varies. Look at the various zoom ratios before purchasing, especially if you take lots of photos outdoors, where the ability to zoom in can be a real bonus.

Some cameras allow to you connect to a TV or a screen via high-quality HDMI connections. Others will only allow you to hook up via USB ports to a computer or tablet. You can see which ones allow for this, and those which do not, from the table as well. Lastly, ensure you check the display size of each camera, as these tend to vary as well.
