Point-and-Shoot Camera Options

Shopping for a Point-and-Shoot Camera

One of the greatest joys of photography is being there at the right moment to capture the perfect shot before it's gone forever. A point and shoot camera gives you the speed and simplicity to make sure you don't miss that one-in-a-million photo. And today's point and shoot cameras are made with some of the best features of the digital camera world for an image quality that just a few years ago was only available to those with a DSLR. And that's what attracts so many people to a point and shoot: their small size and lighter weight mean you can take them anywhere so you're always ready for that unexpected photo op. With the wide selection of digital cameras at Best Buy, you're sure to find a point and shoot with exactly the set of features that match the way you use your camera.

Features of the Point-and-Shoot Camera

These days, features like face detection and image stabilization have become almost standard in a point and shoot camera. But some of these little marvels are also packing features you'd expect to find only in a much larger and pricier digital camera. Panorama mode lets you stitch together several exposures to capture one wide scene. Burst mode takes lots of images one after the other to ensure you get at least one good shot when the action speeds up. You can stabilize your shot a bit more by using a camera tripod. And for those looking to capture video, many of today's point and shoot cameras boast Full HD video capability.

These images and videos can take up a lot of storage space, so you'll find nearly all point and shoot cameras have slots for memory cards to keep up with your photography demands. Common memory card types for newer point and shoot cameras are SD cards, and microSD cards. Older cameras, however, may use Memory Stick PRO Duo or Memory Stick Micro. Use an adapter to transfer your images to your computer, or use a photo printer with a SD card slot to start printing right away.
