The disadvantages of using digital camerasBY: Deena David | Category: Technology and Computers | Post Date: 2009-10-30
The use of digital cameras has a lot of advantages. The advantages include the ability to edit the pictures and also transfer the picture from one computer to another by emails and other storage devices. Though the digital cameras have these advantages, there are many disadvantages too when a person uses a digital camera to take photographs. The disadvantages of using digital cameras come to the fore when one really thinks of the methods in which the regular cameras were used.
Some people still use the film cameras and have avoided using digital cameras. These people find no difficulty in using the camera. This article gives a list of the disadvantages of using digital cameras.
1. Battery life:
The battery that is used in the digital cameras are very easily wasted because of the loss of battery life. This causes a huge amount of expenditure to the one using the digital camera. In ordinary cameras, the batteries are usually consumed only for the flash light, but in the digital camera, the battery power is used for a lot of reasons. The power of battery is used for the digital display of the image on the LCD. It is also used for the flash and also for many other activities on the camera.
Computers are essential for the downloading of the images from the camera. If there is no computer, then the pictures cannot be down loaded and then they may have to be deleted before another photo is taken. This is another important disadvantage of the digital camera. Though every house has a computer these days, it can be very difficult to load the photo onto the computer when you are on a vacation and traveling. To overcome this problem, people usually have more storage devices, though this works out to be very costly.
3. Cost of the digital camera:
The cost of a digital camera is very high compared to the cameras that use films. This is especially so for a person who is a novice and is starting out in photography. If the person is not economically well off, then the digital camera can be way beyond the means of the individual. The cost can be very high depending on the resolution of the camera. When the camera boasts of a very high resolution, then the cost will be that much more.
4. Digital cameras do not capture motion pictures very effectively:
Digital cameras have another great disadvantage and that is because these digital cameras do not capture motion pictures very effectively. So if an individual is planning to purchase a camera to record any photo when the object is moving, then a camera with film roll might be better.
A person may have to decide between a camera with a film roll and one with digital display. The individual has to weigh the pros and cons of each of these cameras and then purchase whichever they feel is better. The purchase of the camera will also depend on the role of the camera and for what purpose the camera is being purchased.
