Entry-level digital cameras are ideal for personal or family use, and fun for sharing memories with friends via e-mail. Good value and easy to use, resolution runs in the average to high megapixel rage - good enough for printing as well as web viewing, although printed images may look a little pixilated with some cameras.
Digital cameras offering either an extended optical zoom lens (e.g. 10x or 35-350mm equivalent) to capture vivid images from distance or powerful digital zooms (e.g. 8x) to enhance detail of images during playback. High zoom capability can be found anywhere from high-end digital compacts and bridge cameras to DSLRs.
Bridge cameras are balanced between the power of a DSLR and the ease of use of a compact. Their larger bodies allow them to have more complicated components allowing for higher megapixel counts and greater zoom ranges. However they differ from DSLRS by having a single integrated lens.
Smart cameras are a new generation of online enabled cameras that borrow elements from smartphones. They can be capable of wireless transfer, cloud storage, running apps and games while others can even track your trips, geotag, tweet and more.
The Compact Systems camera (or ‘Micro Four Thirds’) is similar to bridge models in that it offers a mix of power and usability. The main difference is - like a DSLR - you can swap lenses for totally different styles of photography. Their slimline design also means that they’re almost as portable as a family compact, making them ideal for enthusiasts who want to travel light.
Digital SLR cameras are designed for professional and semi-professional use, often boasting a high megapixel count or including powerful zooms, extended features or a combination of quality photographic elements. Digital SLRs offer the features and functionality found on a conventional SLR camera such as interchangeable lenses, designed to cope with the demands of professional photo shoots and media coverage.
