What do you prefer when buy a digital camera? image resolution or optical zoom? I much prefer with optical zoom because I like to shot a object from far away.

Resolution is important, but optical zoom is really useful. Unless you have a camera with interchangeable lenses, you can't add to either, so get the most useful combination when you get the camera. Typically cameras have 3x optical zoom lenses; I hardly think that is enough; my current compact has 20x optical zoom (stabilized, of course) and 10 megapixel resolution. I could live with fewer pixels, but not less zoom!

Imaging is world best hobby and business now a days. it's really amazing to capture the moments of happiness, sorrow, etc. Where as if we talk about choosing a camera. it's really very easy to pick up a good camera that can be able to capture your unforgettable moments. And the first feature of camera must be the clarity of picture. and resolution is the other one. I will also prefer a camera with excellent optical zoom. so that i will be able to capture best photos. resolution doesn't matter because clarity of picture is such a big deal. Have a nice time!

I would too prefer optical zoom. Today, even basic cameras have good resolutions, so looking for a good resolution camera wont be a problem.
