Kyle Schurman is a freelance writer who has been writing about digital cameras, and the technologies behind them, since digital cameras began appearing on the consumer market. He still has his first digital camera, a 0.5-megapixel model.
Kyle has been a published writer, focusing on technology, since the mid-1990s. He has written for a variety of consumer magazines and Web sites throughout his career. As digital cameras began appearing in the consumer marketplace, Kyle began writing about the various technologies and components that go into the cameras. He soon began writing digital camera reviews and buying guides for magazines and web sites. Watching the maturation of the digital camera marketplace over the past decade and a half has been an interesting journey.
Kyle holds a degree in journalism from the University of Nebraska.
Helping people gain the greatest benefit from their consumer electronics purchases has always motivated me in my writing. Few things are as frustrating as purchasing a digital camera and realizing later it has too many or too few features to meet your needs. Deciphering the jargon and figuring out how you'll use the digital camera before you buy it can help you avoid mistakes. As I've discovered, having the right equipment doesn't automatically make you a great photographer ... but it makes the photography process a lot more fun!
