Things to consider while buying a camera

Going on a camera shopping can prove to very stressful indeed, obviously for people who aren’t tech savvy! Thousands and hundreds of models are stacked up those shelves and it can result in a perplex task.

Every camera takes good pictures! But the more skill you have, your camera helps you further more. There are quite a number of things to consider while buying a camera; this article informs you on several things to keep in mind while choosing a camera.

Why do you need a camera?

This is a question you need to ask yourself before buying a camera. What kind of photography you would be doing? Whether it’s going to be landscape or portraits etc. What is you budget? How experienced are you with the camera? What type of feature you are looking for?

These are several questions you would ask when you consider before buying a camera!


1. The size of digital cameras goes from “slim enough to fit in your jeans pocket” to “big enough that you need a separate bag just to carry it.” They say the bigger is usually better when cameras are concerned.

2.  People these days buy a camera depending on the megapixels.

One of the main questions to ask when it comes to megapixels is ‘Will you be printing shots’? If so – how large will you be going with them? If you’re only printing images at a normal size then anything over 4 or so megapixels will be fine. If you’re going to start blowing your images up you might want to pay the extra money for something at the upper end of what’s on offer today.

3. Hunt down.

Ten different shops will have 10 different quoted prices on that particular camera you require. So make sure you have done adequate market search. Do not zero down on your options instantly.

4. Read reviews

Before buying a digital camera take the time to do a little research. Don’t JUST rely upon the advice of the helpful sales person (who may or may not know anything about cameras and who may or may not have sales incentives for the camera they are recommending).

Read some reviews in digital camera magazines or online to help you narrow down the field. There are some great websites around that give expert reviews.

5. Hands down experience.

Once you’ve narrowed down your search to a handful of cameras head into your local digital camera shop and ask to see and play with them. There’s nothing like having the camera in your hands to work out whether it suits your needs.
