Digital cameras have come a long way in the past ten years. In 2004 most consumer models only had 4 million mega pixels; now they can boast of over 12.5. Given their relatively recent popularity, digital cameras have a surprisingly long history.

During the mid-1970s, it was Kodak which invented several solid-state image sensors that converted light to digital pictures. And in 1986, their scientists invented the world's first megapixel sensor, capable of recording 1.4 million pixels. This meant you could produce a 5x7 inch digital photo-quality print. A year later, they released seven products for recording, storing, manipulating, transmitting and printing electronic still video images.

In 1991, Kodak released the first professional digital camera system (DCS), aimed at photojournalists: the Nikon F-3 camera, equipped with a 1.3 megapixel sensor. Since then, digital has only been on its way up.

Nowadays digital cameras are easier to operate than ever. But to get the most out of any model it’s best to have a digital camera tutorial DVD. This will enable you to shoot the sharpest, most impressive images possible, using a variety of techniques. If you own an SLR digital camera, it will prove particularly invaluable.
