It’s been quite a while since you’ve last taken pictures with your digital camera. But there are several reasons why you might want to update your digital camera. For starters, your phone’s camera may have changed and you may want to check that out before buying a new one. After all, you don’t want to buy a new one that’s not up to par with the quality of the photos you’re already taking.
The first digital camera was the Kodak RDC-1 in 1975, which was designed with leftover parts from the Kodak factory. It had a 64mm color LCD screen, 3x optical zoom, and a shutter speed of f/2.8. This camera cost over $1,500 at the time and took approximately 23 seconds to take a single image. The film-based cameras came out with higher resolutions, but had a lower frame rate.
Over time, the digital camera’s sensor may wear out and need replacing. Fortunately, most photographers will upgrade their camera bodies before the shutter burns out. The sensor is the most important part of the camera, as it records the light coming into the lens and becomes a photo on the back. Thankfully, the sensor is a durable electronic device and usually lasts a long time compared to the camera’s mechanical parts.
Another advantage of digital photography is the quality of the pictures. Since these cameras use digital technology, you can edit the photos in PhotoShop or e-mail them to friends. In short, you can make the most of your digital camera! You’ll be glad you bought one when you do. But, it’s never too late to get started. Just remember to have fun! If you’ve used your digital camera for a while, it’s time to get back out there and take photos!
