    As technology has advanced point-and-shoot features and quality, even advanced photographers have embraced these cameras for their convenience. While DSLR cameras have interchangeable lenses, the point-and-shoot variety has one fixed lens. This makes them more portable, as they are usually smaller and don’t require toting around extra equipment. Many point-and-shoot cameras also offer an LED screen in addition to a viewfinder, making it easier to see your shot. When choosing a point-and-shoot camera, consider what your photography subject and environment will be. Higher zoom abilities will let you take pictures of wildlife without disturbing them, while an advanced flash will be helpful at night.
