Christmas Rush this Holiday Season to go to Digital Photography

So you have rushed out into the malls in a mad panic for this christmas holiday and are going to purchase a electronic item on Credit think again. Consumers are paying again through the nose agin this year 1.5 billion in sales up from last year and sure to gain ground next year again.

Almost on a monthly basis you see a new digital camera rolls off the assembly line almost like clockwork. In order to save your money when getting into digital photography we suggest getting something more middle of the road like the Fuji F450. Fuji F450 review

Don't fall for salesman tactics for upselling, you don't need anything over 5 mega pixel in my opinion. All digital cameras above 5.0 are a bit overkill unless your a professional photographer in which case you would most likely purchase a digital SLR camera. Kodak has stepped up to the plate like always with many versions of the easyshare cameras. Kodak packs value into every camera they produce in my opinion and their very inexpensive. I would recommend having a look at the Kodak easyshare DX7590 if your looking for affordable cameras. Kodak DX7590 Review

If you are looking for a camera that is very universal and packs in my opinion one of the most respectable names and quality customer service, I would stick with a Sony Cybershot digital camera. Sony has some of the best cameras for quality and price with warranty out on the market today. Whatever you choose this holiday season take your time get information on what your buying and don't think that the higher the mega pixel the better the camera. As well be very wary and ask if the CCD sensor is the mega pixel number that they report or is it totalled by interpolation. Remember if you interpolate the mega pixels then the camera isn't reporting its correct processing of the mega pixels.

Good luck with your next camera purchase.
