To make it simple:

1. Use a compatible USB cord to connect the camera to your computer.

2. If this is your first time to connect the device : it will automatically search and obtain compatible drivers from the camera, so this would take a little longer than usual.

3. After the device drivers are installed, or the connection process is finished.

You can now view your photos/videos/files from your camera by opening it on your computer's explorer (Windows + E, if you're on PC)

4. Usually on windows, you can see the camera's name on the explorer together with C:, D:, E:, CD-ROM, etc.

Open it by right-click > Explore/Open or double-click.

5. After opening the camera's root folder, you will see sub-folders. now, it depends on what camera are you using, some cameras uses 2 drives that contains fixed and storage. for this instance, choose 'storage' and browse through the sub-folders on this drive for where the images are stored.

Tip : when browsing, use thumbnails as your view. (right-click > view > thumbnails)

"Regular" cameras are really film cameras, which just means that after you take a photograph, you have to develop the picture. Digital cameras, on the other hand, allow you to immediately see your picture and load it to your computer. While digital cameras are easier to use, film cameras tend to produce higher quality photos.
