Get A Good Camera This Diwali For Great ‘Kodak Moments’

October 22, 2013 | By

Thanks to the ubiquitous mobile phone cameras and point and shoot digital cameras, everyone from kids to grannies can claim to be photographers.

Do you know what is a “Kodak moment”?

Of course, who doesn’t know this famous tagline that entered the common lexicon to describe  golden moments of personal celebrations, joys, festivities and family get togethers that we record for posterity and cherish for the rest of our lives.

We all love to click the “Kodak moment” and thanks to the ubiquitous mobile phone cameras and point and shoot digital cameras, everyone from kids to grannies can claim to be photographers.

Most mobile phones have cameras in them. But unless you do have a very good quality camera in your smart phone, its always better to go in for a camera that will give you better pictures than those hazy and blurred mobile uploads which you see so frequently on Facebook.


When buying a camera, look for these features and then place your order:

The Zoom – The first feature you should check before buying a camera is its zoom. A good camera must have a powerful zoom and an image stabilizer. For instance, if you pick a camera that has a 30x zoom such as Canon PowerShot SX500 IS Point & Shoot, you have a powerhouse in your hand. A great zoom will enable you to capture the tiniest of objects at quite a distance with superb clarity.

The Megalpixels – A 16.0 mega pixel camera is a beauty in hand. A lesser mega pixel is also good to go if you are just clicking for fun. But if you want to do some good photography with your amateur camera, choose one that has a solid megapixel.

The Flash Range – The camera should have a good flash range, both telephoto and wide angle.

The Battery Pack – A battery pack always gives more number of shots than the AA Alkaline batteries. On the down side, if you run out of battery, as in case of SX500, you have to charge the battery pack whereas in cameras that run on AA batteries you can change the AA batteries and you are good to go… “But trust me a battery pack gives you a good amount of clicking time and it rarely runs out,” agrees Atul Rajpoot, who himself is a great amateur photographer and never forgets to carry his camera around.

The Weight – Don’t go in for a bulky heavy camera as you not only have to carry it around, you will also have to wield it well to get the right angles and composition.

Diwali is the best time to get a super camera at unbelievable price offers. L&C brings for you some great camera deals, offers and best buys.
