Using a digital camera

  2. 2. What Do MegaPixels Do? • A pixel is one dot on a color display screen. The more dots or pixels, the better the resolution of the picture. There is a point of diminishing returns when taking photos however.

  4. 4. Lens and Zoom • Optical zoom is superior to digital zoom. • Be careful to only use zoom when you can’t get closer to an object or you want a real closeup. Otherwise, step forward. • Don’t take a picture with windows or light behind the subject. It tricks the automatic exposure and your subject looks too dark.
