You gotta love technology! Though it changes all the time and is therefore impossible to keep up with, those changes are meant to make our lives easier, whether we’re talking about cars, smartphones, refrigerators, or cameras. If it’s been a while since you purchased a camera, we’ve got you covered.
Here is our camera shopping guide, aka, what to look for when buying a new camera:
Decide what camera qualities are important to you first
Cameras vary by photo quality, performance, features, and design, and it is rare that one camera does all four perfectly. Before you even set foot in a store (or surf online), decide if photo quality is more important than a zillion features, or if the design will have a major impact on how you use it. Once you know what you want, camera shopping just got easier.
Don’t buy based on resolution
Don’t consider resolution (how many pixels the camera uses to produce an image) when camera shopping, because every new camera has more than enough resolution for you, no matter what your needs are.
