Warranties and Sony Digital Cameras

Sony is a name that people are familiar with for a great variety of reasons. It was Sony who revolutionized a great variety of home electronics products. Probably their greatest achievement was the release of the Betamax in the 1970’s. Granted, JVC’s VHS system essentially drove the proverbial nail in the coffin of beta, but the inroads that Sony made in the home video market were so vast they laid the foundation for all the amazing products that are available today. Actually, many of those amazing products are also made by Sony!

One of Sony’s more amazing achievements has been their relatively recent venture into the realm of digital cameras. Their achievements have been fairly pronounced as Sony digital cameras have become remarkably popular with consumers and this has led to Sony digital cameras gaining a solid amount of the market share of the consumer digital camera realm.

Now, while Sony digital cameras are very well made, very reliable and very cutting edge, the fact remains that they are not indestructible. As such, it becomes critical to fill out and mail in all required warranty forms so as to make sure that your camera is properly covered in case of an accident.

The Benefits of Warranties to Safeguard and Investment in Sony Digital Cameras

One of the reasons that people opt to purchase Sony digital cameras is the fact that these cameras are top notch, high quality cameras. This quality of product can also be translated as having a long life so to speak. Because of this many people will neglect properly filing their warranty forms because they feel Sony digital cameras are of such a high quality, what could go wrong?

Well, the answer to that is anything! As previously mentioned, no product is invulnerable and because of this a little insurance in the form of a warranty will save a great deal of money in case of an unforeseen catastrophe.

Of course, there is also the opportunity available to purchase extended warranties. This is somewhat “controversial” as many feel that extended warranties may not b necessary while others consider them critically important. In reality, if one feels the need to extend a warranty they might as well as it won’t hurt. If one opts to skip on paying extra for an extended warranty, that is their choice and it should be respected. After all, different people will have different wants, needs and tastes.

Digital Cameras vs. Traditional Cameras

Progress is usually a quick and expedited process. However, in the world of cameras progress was basically minimal because while the mechanics of the cameras would streamline over time, the chemical process of developing film had not changed for many decades and it did not appear that the process would ever change. Of course, this proved to be a false notion as the advent of digital cameras forever changed the landscape of cameras forever.

The Cost Effectiveness of Digital Cameras

When digital cameras first appeared some were a bit ‘put off’ by the price of the camera and, since traditional cameras were much cheaper some opted to stick with the tried and true classical camera. That is, they stuck with traditional cameras until they realized that the cost of developing film will eventually reach the point that they could have purchased a multitude of digital cameras!

Eventually, when people realized that digital cameras – while expensive to purchase – were basically much cheaper than traditional cameras due to the elimination of the need to develop film, it was only a matter of time before the sales of traditional cameras would nosedive. Of course, this is to say nothing of the fact that not only was their no need to pay for the development of the film, there was also no need to purchase film as digital cameras record images on a hard drive or memory chip.

The Quality of Digital Cameras

In addition to the cost effectiveness, a digital camera had a huge leg up on traditional cameras in the sense that the picture quality of a digital image was significantly better than the picture quality of a traditional film camera. The resolution of the digital camera was not only better, but the colors could also be altered. In fact, a color picture could also easily be changed to black and white!

The Video Option

Many digital cameras also offered brief recording capabilities (30 seconds or so) of video images. While this remains a far cry from digital camcorders, it is still a nice little add on to a camera and a function that is more worth having than not. Of course, a traditional camera does not have any video function and that is another reason why digital cameras blow them away in the popularity division.

While it is a shame to see the traditional camera fall from grace so to speak, it is also understandable that new products bring with them efficiency and progress. As such, the advent of the digital camera spelled the great dawning of a new day
