Don’t let the technical complications trap you in a digital camera frustration

Digital cameras are getting easier to use” or so camera manufacturers claim. In reality digital cameras are getting more and more complicated.

Yes, for sure you can set your camera on AUTO mode and let the camera be in charge. But is that the reason you bought your camera?

Are you happy with the camera’s AUTO mode?

When you use AUTO mode, you turn your camera into a point and shoot device and the only thing missing is pressing the button. But since the camera does not have a brain, you will be encountering a dilemma; the picture may not be as you visualized it.

You try to compose your shot the way you imagine your photo should look like, you wait for the right moment to come, you click the shutter button, and camera takes a photo. The picture is not the way you envisioned, and you experience Digital Camera Frustration!

Digital Camera frustration is real!

Don’t let the digital camera frustration happen to you!

Generally speaking, a digital camera is a computer. Camera manufacturers add information of thousands of images to the cameras’ processor. When camera sees a scene, it compares the scene with the given data and selects the settings accordingly.

Depending on how close your scene is to the compared data, you may or may not get a good image. This is the cause of digital camera frustration.
