Most people open the camera box and say "wow, this camera is really flipping sweet...... What does this do?" And most often they never sit down and figure out the answer to the question. Digital video cameras are becoming more and more advanced on the low and high end markets. This means that the camera uncle Pete keeps under the computer desk probably does a whole lot of neat things he isn't even aware of, nor probably ever will know about. What a waste. This doesn't mean you have to be the same way. The moment the camera is in your possession, take the time to get to know it. But more important, take the time to read the manual. This is hard for some men to do because it is easier to figure it out themselves. What a foul misconception. Reading the manual will save hours and hours of confusion and allow the user to immediately enjoy all of the features that were designed to enhance the digital video camera's capabilities.

Do you need face detection on your digital camera and why

womenwithcamera33277526.jpg
The most popular subject for photographs far and above everything else is people. Whether it is your child (or children or grandchildren) other family or friends that we are photographing it is the people we value the most that we want really great pictures of. That's where face detection on your digital camera comes in. Because the truth is this people are by far the most popular photographic subjects and they all have faces!

Shooting a frame-filling close-up of your child eating an ice cream cone does not usually pose much of a technical problem for the auto focus and auto exposure systems built into today's compact digital cameras. These systems will focus on her face and generally give you an excellent exposure. But when you place that toddler's face off-center near the edge of the frame, compose a double portrait of mom and dad, or photograph a group of people sitting around the dinner table, things start getting a lot more interesting and a lot more complex.

Regular auto focus systems, even those with multiple auto focus zones, will sometimes miss the faces and focus on something else that's between them, farther away, or even closer. The result becomes that the people in your picture will be out of focus, blurry, and over- or underexposed which we all know is not a good thing.

Differences between consumer and professional digital cameras

camcorder39174467.jpg
Most people will find that a consumer digital camera is going to be fine for their needs. Professional cameras are more for large enlargements, and for people who are taking professional photos, not for your vacation snapshots, etc.

The following are some of the differences between consumer and professional digital cameras:

With a professional camera, the image recycles every 3 seconds from before to after image. With a consumer camera it takes longer. Professional's generally take several photos in a row to try and catch the best expressions, so fast cycling is more important than it is for just anyone.

With both professional and consumer digital cameras, you can immediately review your images, and delete ones you do not like. With a professional camera this is huge because it means you can check the lighting and composition, and re-shoot if necessary.

camcorder39174467.jpg
