Finding the Best Digital Camera For Seniors

While helping my 78 year old Mother buy her first digital camera I discovered that some of the key factors in buying a digital camera for a senior citizen aren't about the amount of zoom, the number of megapixels or the size of the camera. I wanted to share this information with others so can find the best digital camera for seniors.

I visited my 78 year old Mother recently and asked her why she keeps buying disposable film cameras and not buy a nice digital camera. Her answer didn't surprise me, with all the advances in digital cameras and all the new features, megapixel this, optical zoom with image stabilization that that it was hard to pick the best digital camera for seniors was. I was able to help my Mother study digital cameras and in the process I came up with different features to take in to account while picking out the best digital camera for seniors.

It was a surprise to find out what isn't the key feature when choosing the best digital camera for grandparents. The key features aren't the number of mega pixels, not the amount of zoom or even the camera size. The most important feature in the best camera for seniors is how easy it is to read the dials on the camera.

The next time you are at the store and want to choose the best digital camera for seniors you'll notice how pretty and shiny most of them are. All this shine causes glare and glare makes it difficult to see the dials (even for my 40+ year old eyes). So a real shiny digital camera isn't the best camera for seniors. Look for black matte dials and controls when doing a comparison for the best camera for seniors.

Besides not being shiny the best camera for seniors needs to be easy to use and understand. The best digital camera for seniors needs to have menus on it that explain what the dials are for, the icons need to be easy to read and interpret.

A major plus for the best digital camera for seniors is if it has bundled software that makes it easy to download the pictures to a computer and easily make adjustments to the photos. The best camera for seniors will also come with software that will makes it easy to upload the photos to the internet so they can be shared with friends and family worldwide.

Since I'm going to dream, I'll dream big and look for the best digital camera for seniors to also be related to easy to use printers and photo frames so the photographer (did you notice that by buying the best digital camera for seniors the user has turned into a photographer, not just a senior?) can have one big easy to use system.

So when looking for the the best digital camera for seniors look for a non shiny, easy to read and understand camera that is just one part of an integrated digital photography system.

When I did my hunt for the the best camera for seniors I found a fully loaded, 10x optical zoom camera with image stabilization. What this means is just because the key features doesn't need to be a low qualityFeature Articles, featureless camera.
