For this digital camera roundup, we will be looking at three 5-megapixel cameras: the Kodak DX4530, the Olympus C-50 Zoom, and the Casio QV-R51. We will look at each camera's features and run our regular tests to see which camera stands out from the others. When looking for a good digital camera, there are several things that should be kept in mind. Firstly, of course, is price. Secondly, you need to know if you are looking for a point-and-shoot camera or one that offers more advanced features such as adjustable exposure setting. Another thing to be aware of is image quality. If you are only going to be printing 4x6 photos or taking pictures that are going to be 300x200 pixel images on your website, you may not need a camera that has the very best image quality as opposed to someone who wants to make 11x14 prints. Also, you should be aware that many digital cameras have special features such as internal memory, in-camera filters, fast startup times, and the ability to record movie clips with sound.
It is with these and many other considerations in mind that we decided to take a look at the three cameras mentioned earlier. Hopefully, after reading this article you will be able to decide which of these cameras, if any, are right for you.
