In our everyday life, we come across special moments which happen in an instant and then goes away for ever. The first steps of your baby, the first time your precious little says ‘dada’, the first home that you buy and the moment when you enter that home with your partner are all special moments. These moments need to be saved for posterity and savored when possible. This is where a compact digital camera comes into the picture. A compact digital camera unlike a film camera allows you to simply point and shoot and then see the results of your effort in an instant. Unlike a film camera, a compact digital camera can calculate the correct exposure, shutter speed, aperture and white balance and give you a perfect shot every time. It also has no limitations like an optical camera using a film roll has.
Imagine that straight out of the blue your 15 months old baby starts to take her first steps. It is a moment of joy and happiness and certainly worth saving. A compact digital camera, that has no frills attached and simply allows you to shoot sharp clear photos by simply turning it on, is the perfect thing to have in hand at that very moment. Since it uses a digital sensor in place of film rolls, you are not limited by how many shots you can take. Simply set it on auto mode and let your fingers take over.
A birthday at home and the opportunity to shoot four generations in one frame? Many times just because we don’t have a simple point and shoot compact digital camera, we miss out on moments that never present themselves to us again. Your dad and grand-dad has come to celebrate your son’s 1st birthday? This is the perfect moment to bring out your compact camera.
A birthday at home and you are wondering whether to call a professional photographer to come and take some snaps? Why bother doing that when you can use a compact digital camera and use it to take sharp photos with minimum fuss. A compact camera is lightweight and does not come with the frills that it’s more illustrious DSLR cousins do. As such an user finds these cameras much easier to use allowing them to shoot some of the best candid moments in a home party.
Planning a vacation? Make sure that you also pack a compact digital camera. Today’s compact point and shoot cameras come with a lot of features that make them the ideal travel partner. A built in GPS locator that seamlessly enter the location name and location time, a plethora of effects, scene selector, manual-aperture-shutter priority selectors and also the ability to shoot HD videos make them indispensable when planning a vacation. After all, when you come back, all you will have to relive those moments are the photos and videos.
Home is where most of us spend at least 30% of our life time and this is where we meet our family, spend quality time together, have fun with our pets and even entertain guests. As such, one of the biggest opportunities to shoot some great photos is right at home. A special moment of togetherness, your 3 year old kid having fun with your family pet, a loving smile of your wife can all be collected just like pearls from a sea of time and then saved for eternity using a compact digital camera.
