SUMMARY: Helpful features some digital cameras provide to take better night photos.
Are you planning on buying a digital camera for night photography, perhaps cityscapes or fireworks displays? If so, here are a few things to look for. Note that only the high-end cameras will have some of these features, so balance your desires against your wallet:
* Does your camera have a special night scene mode? This can help take photos in low-lit conditions "out of the box".
* Higher ISO settings allow you to take photos with quicker exposures at the expense of overall image quality. Can you adjust your ISO settings to 200, 400, or higher without causing your digital photos to become grainy? If you don't understand ISO settings, search MalekTips for the ISO tip under Digital Night Photography.
* Does your camera allow for long exposures of a full second, 2 seconds, or longer? You may need this so enough light can reach your camera in low-lit situations.
* Does your camera come built-in with image stabilization or vibration reduction features? This can compensate for the "camera shake" effect when trying to keep your digital camera still during long exposures.
