Pocket sized digital cameras are handy to carry with you everywhere. In the world of photographic equipment, they are the lightest and smallest cameras readily available for casual use.
They come in so many colors, they can even be a sort of fashion accessory!
The compact size of pocket digital cameras makes them easy to handle, and easier to deal with than the bigger digital cameras. They can be a great beginner camera, or a nice addition to a collection of cameras. Since they are so small, it’s handier to carry them around everywhere than a big camera. Stick one in your pocket, purse, glove compartment… just anywhere you want so you will always have a camera at hand when you see that picture you just don’t want to miss!
For their size, these cameras can produce some pretty good pictures. Most have flash capabilities, so can handle lower light situations. They also have zoom. However, since they are smaller in size, they can’t have a really long range optical zoom. It just takes up more space than can fit in a little camera.
No one camera can do everything, but these are handy little cameras to have around. Good things do indeed come in small packages!
