Wahoo's Microsoft Tips Newsletter - October 2004

In The News This Month...
First off I want to apologize for not sending out the newsletter since June!! What excuse will you accept? I got busy in the store all summer ... I forgot I hadn't sent one out in so long ... I'm absentminded ... The dog ate my homework ... Aliens abducted me all summer ... All I know is that I'm SORRY!!!! Can you find it in your hearts to forgive me? I hope so.

Anyways, I hope everyone had a fun and safe summer and you're all back into the routine of school, homework, work, etc. I can't believe it's almost Halloween and I'll have to dress up as a witch, again! I don't go trick or treating anymore (although I wish I could) but hubby dresses up and takes our 7 year old son out. Last year hubby was a Viking. He has the long blonde hair to go with it so it worked out quite well. Our son was the Grim Reaper with the scythe to match. Very cute!

Starting this month I'm going to be including articles of interest to you, my dear readers, and this month we start off with an article by Jakob Jelling. Here's his website.

Let me know if you like it and if I get enough positive responses, I will have more for you next month. And because Jakob's article is so long, there's only one topic this month as opposed to the usual two.

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Is Digital Photography Expensive?

Being such a fascinating device as the digital camera, this technological masterpiece is of course a precious and priced possession. And acquiring it also means that one time achievement feeling. Thus a person must also be very careful and at the same time quite a little knowledgeable in order to make a good purchase and not lose a good bargain in the maze of soaring prices and mist of exaggerated cost myths. This discussion is again focused to pierce that mist and unravel that myth to reveal the truths and facts regarding the actual and economic cost of a digital camera!

As per recent marketing trends, the conventions has it that there are only two types of digital camera users, firstly the average person who only craves to push the button, and secondly the professional photogrpahers, people who look for good control over the digital camera and its well carved features and are willing to pay virtually any price. Thus with this idea in the back of the entire process of sell and purchase, diverse levels of resolution for such digital cameras are available that are the real culprits in defining the price range of the cameras.

United with such singular features the digital cameras come in a spectral variety of price range for an even varying customer range that are willing to pay anything from $60 to $3000. The cost of an average digital camera probably lies in the region of $300, however in spite of this, a person must be aware of what functionality or resolution that he or she is looking for and ultimately paying for, so that the purchase does not result in too much in exchange of too little of whatever must be desired from the digital camera. A person must self-analyze the reasons for puchasing the digital camera before venturing into an expensive rendezvous. He or she must be aware of wha the real purpose is. Is it only snapping for casual reasons or a serious plan to produce super quality photograhps to be printed as art or for professional purposes.

Looking into the price index in a little more detail reveals more facts! SLR (single lens reflex) digital cameras have attained quite a price shedding with the invention and market release of digital cameras like Canon's EOS Digital Rebel, an SLR priced below $1000, perhaps the very first of its kind. Even with certain add-ons into the digital camera that add to the price a bit more, still the Rebel cost remains about $600 below it's flanking competitors. However comvention has it that these standard digital cameras cost around $2500 to $4000.

In an effort to find out the reasons behind such soaring high prices, research reveals that digital camera sensors are, for all intents and pruposes, computer ships. The bigger the computer chip, the more likely it is for errors. The reason remains that a single blemish in the silicon wafer may reduce to rubble an entire chip. Thus the random flaw increases with the size of the wafer. This is the exact reason why costly chips like Intel Pentium processors are basically not bigger than 20mm square and can also be manufactured in greater volumes. Yet with the reduction in size the prices soar up and this proves the high costs of the digital cameras.

Thus is becomes clear from this discussion that a predetermined mind set is required when approaching for purchasing a deivce like the digital camera. This discussion provides an overview of the price ranges of good digital cameras, but a person must identify his or her own needs and preferences and have an open mind but with some notion of what a good camera should be, and the cost of the digital camera would be a guaranteed perfection!
