Camera Buying Guide

Buying your first, or a new, digital camera can be heaps of fun, but it can also be a bit of a nightmare if you don’t know the terminology or what features matter more than others.

Everyone wants a camera for their own reasons and, as with most things in life, there is no definitive answer for which camera best suits your needs.  So, what I have tried to do in this video is give you an overview of some of the things you should probably consider when selecting your next camera.

At the end of the video I give you some useful links so that you can continue your research.  Here they are again ….

DP Review


I can’t offer advice on a particular make or model of camera, unless it is one I have owned, but if you have any questions of a general nature then please ask away and I’ll help if I can.

Have a great New Year everyone, and here’s to a year of fantastic photos in 2010!

    Hi Gena

    I really can’t help you there, sorry.

    It depends on too many things, like what camera you actually want, where you live, if you want to buy locally or online etc etc etc.

    If I were you I would decide what camera, or general specs, you want and then either check them out at your local store(s) or find the cheapest price online, remembering to factor in postage, for it.

    Even if I had all the information from you all I could do is use Google to try and find your answers, so it really is best if you look and see what you can find yourself.
