Ideal Cameras for the Beginner Photographer

Photography is an exciting activity to get into. However, there are so many cameras on the market that it can be very intimidating to a beginner. Here are some professional cameras that would be great for a beginner to start with:

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 20.0-Megapixel Digital Camera is a great point-and-shoot for beginning photographers who are on a budget. At about $149.99, the phone comes with a battery pack, a battery charger, a wrist strap and an owner’s manual. The camera has 20 megapixels, is Wi-Fi Enabled, has a video resolution of 1920 by 1080 and is NFC enabled. It used a rechargeable battery, and requires a memory card.

For those adventurers who want to get their cameras wet, there is the Olympus Tough TG-5 12.0-Megapixel Water-Resistant Digital Camera. For $379.99, you can take this camera underwater without it getting damaged. On the Best Buy website, it has a general rating of about 4.5. People who bought the camera say that it really is water-resistant, and that it is easy to use. It is great for those who want to start off their photography hobby and/or career with amazing underwater pictures.

Some people love to watch their photos come out of the camera and develop right in front of them. There are plenty of traditional film cameras that are currently on the market. The Polaroid Originals OneStep 2 Analog Instant Film Camera is one of these cameras. Made by the company that used to sell the well known “Polaroid” camera, it has a lens focal length of 106 cm, a vacuum discharge strobe light (for lighting conditions), a self timer function, a rechargeable battery that stays charged for 60 days and the ability to instantly produce finished photos. A USB charger comes with the camera. The con of Polaroid cameras is the fact that the film is relatively expensive.

The iPhone is really one of the most obvious options when it comes to a beginner’s camera. A lot of people already have newer iPhones. For those people who already have one, they can start using the camera option for their photographic endeavors. And if you are in the market for a cell phone, as well as a camera, and if it is within your budget, you should get one a newer iPhone is you do not have enough funds for a full blown professional camera. Additionally, the budding photographer would be interested to know how he or she could save battery power. This is very important, considering the fact that smartphones are used for other very important purposes, such as making phone calls, checking your email, etc. You do not want to use up all of the battery power on taking pictures. Some tips to help your iPhone’s battery go for longer include replacing your battery avoiding hot temperatures reducing the backlight when not needed and using low-power mode.

At the end of the day, do what is best for you perceived skill level and budget. The most important thing is that you’ll be out there taking photos of your family and friends. And if you feel generous, perhaps volunteer (here’s our work) to test out your skills and help out a cause.
