Part I: Today’s Technology > Taking Digital Photos: Nikon Coolpix

Chapter 19. Taking Digital Photos: Nikon Coolpix

Although digital cameras have been around for a while and may seem fairly mainstream, the fact is that they are rapidly gaining features and popularity and are dropping in price. If you’ve ever scanned your traditional print photos and stored them as images on disk in order to email them to friends and relatives, digital cameras can streamline the process and make photography literally a snap—if you’ll excuse the pun!

Emailing photos to friends and relatives can now be as simple as taking the picture with a digital camera, plugging the camera into a Universal Serial Bus (USB) port on your computer, clicking a download button within a software program on your PC to send the pictures to your hard disk, and then clicking an email button within the same program to launch your email program. Cameras such as the Coolpix 4500 from Nikon provide everything you need to achieve this, including all the necessary cables and software (Plate 21). This camera also supports viewing of your digital photos on your television set. All you need to do is plug in the audio/video cable provided with the camera and use the camera’s playback button to display your pictures.
