Based on the type of film used, Polaroid cameras can be classified. The older Polaroids used instant film roll. Roll films were of two types: Positive or developing agent and negative. These rolls were available in three sizes. Pack film was later used in cameras, in which the photographer has to pull the film from the camera for developing and subsequently the positive and the negative have to be peeled separately while developing. This Pack film was available initially in a rectangular format and later in square format. Subsequent Polaroids such as the once famous SX-70 model utilized a square format integral film, which had the developer, negative, fixer etc in the same film. Development of each exposure was automatic once the shot is taken.
That’s the history of Polaroid camera. Polaroid digital cameras are now available in various types. You should be happy to know that there are certain models designed specially for a good cause. The m635P model from Polaroid Corporation was designed solely for promotion of breast cancer research. Polaroid Corporation along with actress Elizabeth Hurley initiated to offer a combined donation of $60,000 for the above Research foundation in the year 2006. Pink, light pink and magenta models of Polaroid digital cameras were launched especially for the above good cause and awareness.
One more noted achievement from Polaroid is the launch of the ION digital camera which combines high-end features and is easy to use. This ION digital camera has an on-board memory of 8MB and is light and compact, suitable for traveling people. Other features of this ION digital camera include automatic white balance with auto exposure, a 10-second electronic timer, the capacity to capture AVI video clips along with audio like a web cam, 640 x 460 pixel resolution, Arc Soft software on DVD, two AAA batteries and a USB cable.
Another great model from Polaroid is PDC 4355, which has glass lenses of high quality for Zoom and normal, 4.2 MP resolutions, 3x Optical Zoom and a fast CCD sensor. This is a good camera for photographers for point and shoot simplicity coupled with great optical performance. In the 3x optical and 4x digital zoom modes, the glass lens system permits for exposures for distances of 15 centimeters to infinity and has three modes for image quality and video clip functions.
This Polaroid digital camera has other features such as macro mode, auto focus, Inbuilt flash having the on, off and red eye and auto modes.

This software can launch your desktop automatically, detect any new photos in the camera and permit you to transfer them to your computer at the click of the OK button. This handy camera allows you to take pictures within a few minutes of receiving and is powered by two AA batteries.

Buying a Digital Camera

Family and friends can be pretty far flung these days, so how do you keep in touch? Snail mail and phoning are good options, but it's fun to be able to share pictures. With the advent of digital cameras, it's easy to post pictures on a blog or website, or send pictures via email.

Of course, film cameras will work, as you can scan and convert pictures to digital files, but the easiest way to send pictures quickly and cheaply is to use a digital camera.

How To Find What's Best For YOU When Buying A Digital Camera

There are all kinds of digital cameras available these days, so the trick is to find the one that suits your needs and budget. If you are buying your first digital camera, the lingo and technology are a bit different than for film cameras, so before shopping take time to learn a little and figure out what you'd like to buy.

First, what kind of photographer are you? Do you like total control over the picture taking process, or would you rather just aim the camera and push the shutter button? Then it's also helpful to decide what you want to do with your pictures. Do you just want to put them online or send them via email, or do you want to be able to print them, and if so, how large do you want your prints?

If photography isn't your passion, and you just want to have pictures to share, buying a simple point-and-shoot digital camera is probably best. It has automatic settings, so all you have to do is aim the camera, press the shutter and viola! Instant picture!

However, if you prefer more control over the picture taking process, try buying a mid-range digital camera. There is a wide range in both price and features. For the more serious hobby photographer, there are "prosumer" cameras midway between point-and-shoot cameras and digital SLR cameras. They offer better lens quality and usually more features than a point-and-shoot, though those little cameras can come pretty loaded these days!

Digital SLR cameras are top of the line and more expensive. These work more like traditional cameras, having a body with detachable lens. This gives you more options with being able to change lens, but it's also much more expensive. Just one lens can cost as much as a point-and-shoot digital camera! There's also usually a steeper learning curve to figure out how to use all the options on a digital SLR camera.

However, if you're buying your first digital camera, intermediate, "prosumer" and digital SLR cameras probably aren't the best choice. All the settings and features can be a little overwhelming for the beginner, and your expensive camera may end up collecting dust somewhere. Try a low to midrange camera first and get a feel for digital cameras and what features are most important to you. Then when you're ready to move up and buy a better digital camera, you'll have a better idea of what to look for before you lay out your hard earned cash!

What To Look For When You're Ready To Buy A Digital Camera

You can buy digital cameras in all sorts of places these days, from fancy department stores to discount stores, photography/camera shops and many stores online. While you can sometimes find great deals on-line, if this is your first digital camera, go to shops and look at different cameras if at all possible. It helps to pick it up and get the feel of the camera in your hand to see if it's comfortable and the controls are easy to use, and you can check out what features it has and how they work.
