Choosing the best cameras for your needs can be a difficult task, especially given the range available these days. Whilst there is no single best camera, there are three key areas that can help you pick the camera that is ideal for your purposes. To help you decide, we have thought about price, size and features to assemble a top list of the best cameras in each category, with notes about their pros and cons.
Our list of the best cameras starts with point and shoot cameras. Point and shoot cameras are the cheapest of the best cameras on the market – but don’t let that put you off. For the amateur photographer with a love of photography, owning a point and shoot camera is an absolute must. However, if you are the type of photographer who likes to take great images with professional results, then by all means get a point and shoot camera. They are great for taking photos of family and friends – but they aren’t designed for professional use.
Next on our list of the best cameras is a hybrid camera. A hybrid camera is one that takes both stills and videos. They are best suited to those who enjoy using stills and prefer to keep their photography lighthearted. A good example of a hybrid camera is the SLR with a video lens.
The third part of our best cameras list is mirrorless cameras. Mirrorless cameras allow photographers to keep their photography simple; they eliminate the need for a bulky and unsightly camera box. Many mirrorless cameras also have built-in flash, which eliminates the need for a flash box, and many of them also include a self-timer. This makes photography easy and fun for even the most inexperienced photographers.
Our fourth criteria for choosing the best camera is the price. We all want to find a great camera, but what is a great deal for one photographer can be outrageous for another. Keep in mind that even though mirrorless cameras are becoming more affordable, many of the best cameras on the market still cost hundreds of dollars. The trick is to find a great camera for the amount that you can afford to spend.
Last, but not least on our list of the best cameras for bloggers is a vlogger camera. Many bloggers (YouTube sensations) use a camcorder instead of a professional camera. However, they still prefer to use a quality point and shoot camera because it allows them to make small, professional looking videos. Vloggers (vloggers are people who create videos as a hobby or for fun) can do so much better and capture more video content with a good point and shoot. Vloggers are some of the most hard working and popular bloggers around, so you have to get a good camera in order to be noticed!
If you are just starting out in photography or haven’t got the experience yet to begin capturing professional looking videos, then a mirrorless camera is the best choice. You can still learn how to take great pictures and post them online. You will, however, have to spend a lot of money in order to learn the ropes. You can learn how to take great still shots and post them online, but it will take some time and money in order to learn the techniques and skills you need to capture quality still photos.
