Looking into price index in a little more detail reveals more facts! SLR (single-lens reflex) digital cameras have attained quite a price shedding with invention and market release of digital cameras like Canon's EOS Digital Rebel, an SLR priced below $1000, perhaps very first of its kind. Even with certain add on into digital camera that even add to price a bit more, still Rebel cost remains about $600 below its flanking competitors. However comvention has it that these standard digital cameras cost around $2500 to $4,000.
In an effort to find out reasons behind such soaring high prices, research reveals that digital camera sensors are, for all intents and purposes, computer chips. The bigger computer chip, more likely it is for errors. The reason remains that a single blemish in silicon wafer may reduce to rubble an entire chip. Thus random flaw increases with size of wafer. This is exact reason why costly chips like Intel Pentiums processors are basically not bigger than 20mm square and can be also manufactured in greater volumes. Yet with reduction in size prices soar up and this proves high costs of digital cameras.
Thus it becomes clear from this discussion that a predetermined mind set is required when approaching for purchasing a device like digital camera. This discussion provides an overview of price ranges of good digital cameras, but a person must identify his or her own needs and preferences and have an open mind but with some notion of what a good but should be, and cost of digital camera would be a guaranteed perfection!
