Considering A New Camera?

March 1, 2010

So far we have been looking at how to use your camera, and most of you may have a point-and-shoot camera. These are great cameras, particularly given the advancements in technology today. Many functions previously unavailable on compact cameras are now there, giving you more options to get great photographs.

But perhaps you are thinking about making a change, an upgrade to a camera with more flexibility than your current camera. Here are some questions to answer when considering a new camera:

Putting some thought into answering these questions can help you decide whether upgrading from your present camera makes sense for you. And keep in mind there are lots of choices ranging from Digital SLR cameras for a few hundred dollars to high end cameras costing thousands of dollars.

The amount you pay for a camera does not necessarily mean that the camera will take better photographs; remember, the single most important element in producing great photographs is – you, the photographer!

If you have to choose between taking a course in digital photography like 123di, or purchasing a new camera like the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS
I recommend taking the course first. Your camera is a tool to use but the artistry, the ability to see and create great images, comes from the photographer – you!

Remember, keep taking lots and lots of photographs of your kids. You will be glad you did!
