CAMERA BUYING GUIDE

It's not all that easy to select the right camera, which is why I have put together this article to make things easier for you. Since I use Canon, I have bracketed certain cameras and lenses together. There are two things which you need to decide before buying. What is your budget? What do you need the camera for? some people think that since they do not want to take up their photography as a profession so they do not need a pro camera. In fact, they are wrong. If you can afford, go for a more professional high-end camera as it is surprisingly more user-friendly. When we spend more on a car with better features, we do it for ourselves and we never think

On the other hand, you may want to pursue photography as a profession but at this point of time financially you may not be in a position to buy one of your dream cameras. Do remember that it is you who creates all those beautiful images and not your camera. Once you get started, as you get recognition and appreciation for your work, clients and money will follow. This is when you can always upgrade to a better camera/lens. Now you know for sure that photography is going to work for you and is certainly going to pay for your equipment as well.

Why should I spend more on a camera if I can manage with a basic one?

It is also a myth that you need to start off with a cheaper camera and once you learn, you should upgrade to a better one. It's not a car, that you should learn on a cheaper car just in case you bang it somewhere the loss won't be much. If you have the money and can handle the equipment well, go straight for the camera you want. otherwise, you will be spending an additional sum for your first camera besides the camera you always wanted.

Compact, Hybrid, mirrorless or the DSLR?

Depends on your priority. If you want to reduce the weight you carry around or you want to reduce the bulk and size, which you carry around. Mirrorless or Hybrid will be lighter in weight but won't fit in your pocket. If weight is not an issue, then why not an SLR.
