42nd Street Photo: Camera Buying Tips

Whether you are a pro or a first time photographer, it is important to know what you are looking for when shopping for a camera. There are many things to look for and you need to decide what is important to you.

First, consider the reasons that you need the camera. Are you shooting your everyday family ins and outs or are you looking to get some great shots to print and hang in your home. Maybe you are a professional and your pictures must be good enough to make a living. Whatever the case may be, you need to decide why you need a camera. If you have little to no experience with camera, do not try to get too fancy. Just get a point and shoot camera because chances are that if you get one with the bells and whistles, they will never get used. If you have a little bit more knowledge on cameras and you want to start shooting all kinds of things, you need a camera with features and settings that you can use based on when and where you are taking photos. If you have a lot of experience behind the lens, you may be looking for a top of the line camera with different lenses and more features than others.

After you figure out what you need a camera for, you need to think about what type of camera you want. You need to figure out if auto modes or manual settings are the way for you. Once you are looking at cameras in person, handle it as you would when using it. Make sure it fits comfortably in your hands.
