Simple point and shoot cameras

If you are not a professional or if photography is not your hobby why do you pay a lot of money to buy expensive cameras.

Most of the time people print the photographs on small photograph papers such as 10 x 15 cm.

Even many people do not print, just keep the pictures in their computers. So why you pay more for more megapixels.

For small prints a 3 mp camera is enough. But if you want to crop some parts of the photos may be you need 5 mp. Actually you cannot find less than 6mp nowadays.

My opinion is if you are taking photos just for fun buy a simple cheap camera. But the lens and sensor type is important to have good quality images. So buy the simplest models of well known camera brands. To my opinion Kodak has very good price performance ratio. But also the brands like Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, and many other well known camera producers have cheap point and shoot models.

The picture shows an old Kodak digital simple camera CX 7300 which I bought to my 9 years old son for school trips , 5 years ago. Now ofcourse the simplest camera has much properties than this one. But even this simple camera is enough for memory photographs. I will post some pictures taken with this camera. Here is one of the pictures. Ofcourse when the pictures is viewed 100% size you can see the noise, it is natural it is not a DSLR or SLR. But on your computer or on small cards photos are beautiful and enough for just memory.

When you go to a shop they will tell you a lot of properties of the camera which you will probably will not use most of them.

Nikon L35 AD2- A film point and shoot camera

Nikon L35AD2 is a very easy to use compact point and shoot camera. Especially after my Agfa which I used for years, this one was very easy.
I bought this camera in 1986 and have taken a lot of beautiful pictures. It was difficult to carry my SLR camera Nikon FA.
I have had other cameras but with Nikon L35 AD2 I have been extremely pleased.
In my opinion the picture quality is , outstanding. It still works well.
Power source: 1.5V AA type batteries for main functions and one lithium battery for the data imprint.
Film speed setting is automatic, you can use DX coded 35 mm films from ISO 50 to ISo1600.
Film winding is also automatic.
Just look into the viewfinder and centre the autofocus frame marks on the subject, and shoot. The autofocus is very good.
The built in flash pops up automatically when light is insufficient. Flash shooting range is 0.7 meters to 4.00 meters depending on film ISO.
Also it has a very good focus lock system.
You can also use selftimer lever and the shutter is released after approximately 10 seconds.
You can also adjust the databack depending on what you want to be printed on the picture. Hour/minute or year/month/day
It is a perfect compact camera but not digital.
It comes with a nice strap and a very nice camera bag, not like todays cameras
