Did you know? The Point and Shoot Camera, in terms of cameras, refers to the type of still camera that has an autofocus and a built-in flash component. It is widely used by non-professionals because it is easy to use and comes in a user-friendly, compact size. Point-and-shoot cameras became popular in the late 1980s and are by far the best-selling standalone cameras on the market.

Point and Shoot Cameras are sometimes called fixed lens cameras because the point and shoot cannot change lenses. The lenses are built directly into the camera body. A point and shoot camera is also easy to use, as it doesn't offer quite the level of manual control options that a DSLR camera offers, which is where it receives its name. You just point the camera at the subject and shoot in fully automatic mode.
