Prices of digital cameras continually go down. Gone are the days when you need to buy film and the end of having film is the end of the getting those nice pictures. Digital cameras are a true blessing but can truly be maximized if you make it a habit to:
1. charge your battery. You may have gigabytes of storage space but when battery runs out, there goes your photo.
2. delete unwanted pics. Even gigabytes of storage can be used up, specially for trigger happy photographers. When you have time off in between destinations, scan your memory card and delete unwanted shots so that you always have space.
3. have a zip lock handy specially when you go to beaches and anywhere wet and you really have to bring your gadget. A plastic ziplock will protect your camera in case of emergency.
