Until very recently, the ability to create poster-sized photographs with near-perfect clarity was solely in the hands of professional photographers. The amateur photographer was left with fuzzy 4x6 snapshots developed at the local drugstore. Since the advent of digital point and shoot cameras, the professional and amateur worlds have radically collided. Now, spending a few hundred dollars gives the armchair photographer the power to create the same images as the pros. With new technology, however, comes new terminology. Megapixels? Optical lens? Red-eye reduction? Pronto’s Point and Shoot Digital Camera Buying Guide breaks down these confusing terms and facts so you choose the camera that could make you the next Ansel Adams or Robert Doisneau (see also Digital SLR Camera Buying Guide).
