You are:

GUACAMOLE - a sauce or 'dip', as per the title.

My prefix is a great part of what can be found in bird cemeteries

Your prefix is GUA, which is the majority of the word 'GUANO', i.e. accumulated excrement of birds, commonly found in places where they live, die and gather.

My infix is a shortened form of a capturing device's name

Your infix is CAM, short for CAMERA, a device which captures images.

My suffix sounds like a great quantity of matter, but prefers to dig

Your suffix is MOLE, a word which is both the SI unit for amount of a substance, and the name of a burrowing animal (which 'prefers to dig').

Altogether:

GUA + CAM + MOLE (with overlap) = GUACAMOLE
