Both the Powershot, and the digital Elph are among the most popular in the Canon line up of digital cameras. If you talk to anyone whose owned more than a couple of digital cameras in their lifetime, chances are they purchased a model for one of these two lines. Here’s a quick summary, of what I consider to be the top cameras in those lineups. Going from favorite to least favorite. While it would be hard to go wrong with any camera listed here the closer to the top, the better off you’ll be.
That doesn’t mean you can’t end up paying hundreds or thousands of dollars, so you should do your homework before you go buy one. You should take the 3 tips below into consideration when you go buy a camera.
One of the top commonly encountered digital camera problems is the malfunctioning of the zoom lens. This usually occurs when the lens is out of alignment. When this happens, the camera loses its ability to focus an error message appears on the LCD screen. Another common problem are the defective memory card doors which have broken hinges. The common and innocent mistake of pushing the memory card into the slot the wrong way can lead to damaged memory card contacts. Other common problems are cracked or scratched LCD screens, broken battery covers, and dysfunctional camera sensors.
It shouldn’t be a problem in most cases, but some cheaper digital cameras don’t have this option. Another option that the camera should have is an AC adapter. You can consume less of the battery if you use the AC adapter while the camera is attached to the PC.
Sometimes errors occur when the batteries are too low. Try inserting fully-charged batteries and see if you still encounter the same problems.
The LCD is the small screen that you can find on the back of the camera, allowing you to preview pictures and to see them after you took them.
It can be hard to get a decent zoom lens with a compact camera, but the SD890IS comes pretty close. With a 5X zoom, 10 megapixels, and a much improved LCD, this Canon Powershot ELPH is a great camera.
If you wear glasses, you might want to pick a digital camera that has a diopter adjustment attached to the viewfinder of the camera. Other possible options for a digital camera include tripods, different lenses, remote controls and anything else you might want to use on a regular basis.
But this is only the beginning when it comes to digital cameras. A lot of improvements have been made in the last few years in the area of digital cameras and this area continue to improve and expand.
