Disposable camera, or digital camera, which one is best for you. Both camera’s, like most things, come with pros and cons. You want up to date photos of the family, and your adventures, but bad photo’s can be almost as horrible as having no photo’s at all. We’ve all been there, you think you captured that special moment, then the photo comes out blurry, or to dark. Maybe there is a solution to the problem.
Disposable camera’s are cheap, costing less then $10.00 each. But over time that $10.00 adds up, and in a years time it’s easy to spend over $100.00 on disposable camera’s, and film developing. Another down side to using a disposable camera is the simple fact that your unable to view the photo as it is taken. However, you should always keep one disposable camera on hand incase of an emergency, like dead batteries in your digital camera.
Digital camera’s are easy to use, and most of them come with a viewing screen, so you can see what your photo looks like before you download it. You can find good digital camera’s for less then $150.00, and in the long run, that’s a good savings. And with a digital camera, and memory card, you can take hundreds, even thousands of photo’s, where with a disposable camera you can only take 24 per camera.
Digital camera’s work out great, until your computer crashes, and you lose everything. Yes, that has happened to me, You should always burn your photo’s onto CD, or keep them in an album on a safe site. Printing your digital photo’s can be tricky to. If you don’t use a good enough photo paper, or don’t have the right printer, your photo’s are not going to be of good quality.
