Nowadays, more and more smartphones and tablets have got the function to shoot and share to social networks immediately, so why we still need one? Compact cameras are so-called for their size, they are just fit small enough to fit for your pocket and purse, but that is not say the compact cameras are not ready to shoot for high quality images, just on the opposite, as a camera, the compact camera will give customers much better performance focusing on shooting images. And if you want to keep your phone and camera separate, or, you are not satisfied with your phone camera, or want a more powerful camera with a better lens and wider range of shooting options. Just buy yourselves one.
To decide which the best camera is, we set image quality as the first thing to consider. It is obvious the compact camera’s image sensors are not as large as the DSLRs, The largest sensor type in our top 10, is the 1 type sensor. For the larger sensor, customers will get more to capture the light, which will cause a more detail images. The sensor types have been shown on the image below.
Here we consider a 1/2.3” sensor will be good enough for common use.
Also the image quality is determined by a combination of factors. Optical zoom is the second factor to consider. Don’t take the digital zoom into consideration, for optical zoom uses an extended lens to bring the subject closer, but the digital zoom just enlargers the existing image.
For all the compact camera we select has got the image stabilization features, these feature we didn't list into the table.
The best compact cameras must not only have a good image quality, we also need the camera to shoot HD video. Look for a camera with a zoom lens that works while you are shooting. Some cameras are equipped with Wi-Fi capability so you can shore your photos on social network right througt your device, which is more compete to the smartphones and tablets. But pay attention to whether the camera will ask for extra-charge for the Wi-Fi mode.
Waterproof is also a good function we may prefer to see in the compact camera. It will be fun to have you camera under the water it's it
Compact Digital cameras combine long zoom lenses with a portable, lightweight frame. Find a camera that fits comfortably in your hands. If you prefer using touchscreen controls over buttons look for a camera with at least a 3-inch display screen.
