WAHT MAKES A GOOD CAMERA
The quality of a digital camera is mainly defined by four quantities: Resolution, Lens Aperture, Lens Zoom Range, Lens Quality, and Software. The resolution is the number of pixels in the captured image. Computer images are divided into little dots called pixels. The more pixels, the more detailed the image can be. A good 16x20's print required 16 megapixel and above.
Lens Aperture: The aperture of a lens is its maximum opening. The bigger the aperture, the more light is gathered, and the less light we need to take a good photo. This is the most overlooked lens specification, but it very important, especially if you like to take photos indoors without flash (look a lot more natural than flash photos) or from a reasonable distance. Lens aperture is measured in f/numbers, such as f/4 or f/22. An aperture of f/2.0 literally means that the lens opening is half the focal length of the lens. Thus, smaller numbers mean bigger lens openings. A lens that is f/2 is more expensive than a lens that is f/4.
Lens Zoom Range: A zoom lens has a variable focal length. The focal length determines the magnification of the lens. A short focal length is a wide-angle lens, great for taking photo of a large group. A long focal length is a telephoto lens, great for a tight photo of a distant object or person. If a camera has a 3X zoom, it means that the longest focal length is 3 times the shortest. Most digital cameras have a 3X zoom, with a focal length range from around 35 mm to 105 mm. 35 mm is a modest wide angle, and 105 mm is a modest telephoto. Long focal lengths present problems for photographers. It is hard to hold a camera sufficiently stable at a focal length of 300 mm. Bright sunlight helps, and a tripod or monopod can do wonders. A few cameras with extreme zooms have a stabilized lens, that compensates for camera shake. Good stabilization can make a remarkable difference in sharpness of handheld shots at extreme focal lengths.
Lens Quality: Lenses with the same focal length and aperture can differ substantially in quality. A poor lens is not as sharp, and it may exhibit chromatic aberration, which means that all colors are not brought to the same focus. This usually shows up as colored fringes at high contrast edges. Unlike aperture and zoom range, you cannot read the lens quality of the camera box. The two best approaches to getting a good lens are: Read reviews, and stick with reputable camera companies like Sony, and Canon.
SONY Alpha a9 Mirrorless Digital Camera: Packed with 24.2 megapixel full-frame sensor, the A9 is the camera that can shoot 20 fps continuos shooting, no blackout viewfinder, and 693-point AF system with 4K video quality. The body has built-in 5-axis image stabilization, helping keep both stills and videos steady.
