Digital cameras are every where. In a world where just about everyone has one on their cellphone what are photography enthusiasts doing? True, camera phones are getting more and more powerful as the years go by, but dedicated camera still outperform. The biggest difference in the two types of cameras is sensor size. The sensor determines what the camera is actually seeing and produces and image with the information taken in. Since dedicated digital cameras are in such close competition with cell phone cameras, I am going to list the Top 5 Pocket Sized digital cameras out now.
Top 5 Pocket Sized Digital Cameras are :
5. Cyber-shot DSC-W690
Sony makes some great pocket sized digital cameras. This one fits in the budget category. It drops a few of the nice features like 1080p video recording, lots of shooting modes, and stereo sound recording. If you are not going to miss those, this is one solid camera. It is rated at 16.1 megapixels, so you don’t need to worry about the clarity of your prints. It is also one of the smallest cameras in the Top 5. Get ready to take this one everywhere you go.
4. LUMIX DMC-FX80
This pocket sized camera entry from Panasonic is perfect for those interested in their first digital camera. The sensor captures 12.1 megapixels with a 24mm wide lens that has an aperture ideal for low light performance. You get image stabilization features for shooting in low light and zoomed as well. One of the drawbacks to this camera is the particularly short battery life.
3. Cyber-shot DSC WX150
This Cyber-shot is one of the more powerful camera in this category that has a decent price tag. This camera is rated at a whopping 18.2 megapixels. That means you can safely make prints up to 16×20 without degrading the image. It has a powerful 10x optical zoom with a 20x digital zoom to boot. You are going to get about 240 shots per battery charge, which is average when it comes to battery life. You are in luck if you are looking for a camera with video recording as well. This one shoots 1080p and records stereo sound.
2. Nikon Coolpix S800c
This is one of the most advance cameras on the list when it comes to technology. This is an Android powered smart camera. That means it has all the functionality of a smart phone except the ability to make calls. This camera can upload wirelessly and use all of the fun apps your phone has while taking pictures on a dedicated camera. A very cool idea from Nikon.
1. Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS
The best camera on the list is a 16.1 megapixel digital camera that records 1080p video. It is equipped with a 24mm lens for wide angle shooting that is capable of 5x optical and 5x digital zoom. Those specs alone make this camera ready for just about any shooting situation. Top it off with 58 shooting modes and a decent battery life to make this a great pocket sized digital camera.
