We love the good old shoot ’em up western’s with Gary Cooper and John Wayne quick on the draw, shooting from the hip which was important to winning the show downs at high noon. Nowadays shooting from the hip is important for photography as well so that you don’t miss that perfect sunset or tiger in the bushes (not a euphemism).
Obviously it’s not just about pointing and shooting with any digital camera on the market. You need to have a digital camera that has features which allow it to adapt quickly to any situation such as; fast shutter speed, size of image sensors (the bigger the better), image and sensor-shift stabilization, face detection, amount of zoom available etc. Once you have these features at your finger tips then the world of quick shot photography is all yours.
So how do you find the best possible point and shoot digital camera on the market? Well there are a lot of digital camera brands and models to choose from but we think we might have cracked it. This list has been based on; price, quality, features, and durability.
