The Advantages Of An Ultra Compact Digital Camera

Author : Jamie Simpson

If you are looking to purchase a new high-quality digital camera, then you might want to look at the newest offerings of ultra-compact digital cameras. These cameras have traditionally been overlooked by serious photography hobbyists, but as they begin to approach the quality of even the high-end cameras, many more people are beginning to take notice. So should you consider purchasing one of these ultra-compact cameras? Let's take a look at some of the advantages.

More Compact

As the name suggests, these cameras are extremely compact. This means that they are much easier to carry around with you, whether you are travelling or whether you just need a good camera for everyday use. It has gotten to the point that these cameras are almost the size of a credit card, so you can easily slip one into your purse or into your breast pocket. At the same time, very little has been sacrificed in terms of quality. You can often put on any size lens that you need, so you can still take great pictures. It has simply been advances in hardware and more powerful computer chips that have allowed these devices to grow so tiny.


As you may have guessed, these cameras are also significantly lighter than traditional digital cameras. You can carry them around with you everywhere just as you do with your cell phone, and you will never even notice that it is there. Compare this with a typical digital camera, which often requires you to carry a large camera bag that you wear around your neck.

Less Complicated

Because these cameras have much less surface area, the manufacturers have been forced to focus more on the design and user experience. This has made them come up with more creative ways to simplify the picture-taking process. The interface of these ultra-compact cameras is often much more intuitive and beautiful than you would expect to find on traditional cameras. You no longer need to study a manual to figure out how to use dozens of different buttons.


Many people are worried that ultra-compact digital cameras come with a trade-off in quality, but this is not necessarily so. You can find ultra-compact cameras that allow you to change out multiple different lenses for whatever occasion you might need. If you just want to take casual photos of your friends around town, then you can use the built-in lens. If you need to take professional-grade photos at a wedding, then you can use a larger lens. Pretty much anything is possible with these tiny cameras.

There are many different options when it comes to choosing the ultra-compact digital camera that is right for you. One of the most popular cameras in this category is the Nex from Sony. This camera can hold its own against nearly any DSLR, but it is about half the weight and carries a very attractive price. It also has a few other useful features for a high-end camera, like the ability to shoot HD video.
