As of August 2015, digital cameras that are easy to use include the Vivitar ViviCam X029, Olympus Tough TG-2, Nikon D3200, Canon PowerShot Elph 330 HS and Samsung Galaxy Camera. Vivitar's camera is simple enough for children to use.
At almost 2.5 inches, the ViviCam screen is large for a digital camera, so photographic subjects are easier to see. To increase its simplicity, the camera also has Anti-Shake and Face Detection features.
The Olympus model allows photographers to easily adjust shooting modes with a physical dial rather than internal settings. In addition to being simple to use, the Olympus model is very sturdy, standing up to falls, extreme pressures and temperatures, and water depths up to 50 feet.
Although experienced photographers have the option of using the Nikon's manual controls, an automatic function removes those choices from individuals who want a simple camera. This "guide mode" appears in the camera's monitor to deal with challenges such as moving subjects, night shots and close-ups.
The Cannon PowerShot is a relatively affordable camera that makes it easy to share photos and videos immediately because of its WiFi capability. It also contains a GPS. Samsung's Galaxy has a simple-to-use 4.8- inch touch display with all the camera's controls. It also has Auto and Smart preset shooting modes, but users interested in more choices access additional modes with a dial.
