Digital camera specifications can be some of the most confusing terms to understand in the market today. When I first began my photography hobby, it indeed took a lot of time and patience to really get what some of these “settings” meant”. Taking photos is an everyday joy for me. I absolutely love spending time behind the lens, but I truly did not know where to start when choosing my first “professional” camera. There was so much to learn and so many specifications that I did not understand. What is a megapixel? Why does ISO matter? What is the difference between manual focus and auto focus? Can’t I just point and shoot? I quickly found out that there is so much more to a camera than just picking up it up and yelling, “smile”. I hope to help you understand the many digital camera specifications you should know before purchasing your next digital camera. It really feels amazing when you find the perfect camera for your photography, so let’s get right into digital camera specs and looking further into what their relevance is.
