Hey guys!!! Today's post is all about cameras!!!! I am going to list some cameras that "I" would suggest or purchase for myself. I get asked this question a lot, so why not address it here?!?!! LOL
I am LOVE Canon Products. LOVE THEM, but I will suggest different cameras that I either own, or have played with, in different price ranges. Hopefully if you are in the market or if you will be soon...this might help!
Ok, so let me confess...this post actually allowed me to go to a camera store and touch and feel these cameras.....why? Because I need a new one for my purse lol. Remember Jaelyn got my powershot for her photography class at school :-) I don't want to carry my 20D EVERYWHERE lol.
Let's get started shall we? LOL
**DISCLAIMER, I am only sharing what I have learned. If by chance you choose a product, and it does not work for you, you can not blame me that it didn't work out** I'm just sayin...lol
GREAT ARTICLE!!! Don't let the terms fool you....educate yourself. ALWAYS research what you want BEFORE going into a camera store. People will rip you off if you don't know what you are talking about!!! They will try and get over on you. ESPECIALLY women! Call it what you may, but it's the truth!!!
How many megapixels is enough?
Don't let the numbers fool you. You can have a 12 MP camera and if you don't know how to work your camera....your pics will still look like crap. Just because you have a high dollar camera does NOT mean you will have quality photos. One of my FAVORITE bloggers, uses a point and shoot ,I think almost exclusively, and her pics are GORGEOUS! ALWAYS!!!
Ok, let's start with the cameras:
Olympus Stylus 830 Price $249.95
This is a REALLY good camera. When I played with this one, I was able to take some pics and print them out. They came out WONDERFULLY. I don't have this, but I did get a chance to play with it at the camera store. It's really light and very user friendly!!!
Nikon Coolpix S51c Price $234.95
Now, I am SO NOT a NIKON girl, but if I HAD to get a NIKON, this would be the one. It is VERY nice. I have a hard time with the NIKON functions, because they are so different from the Canon. Almost polar opposite lol But this one was really easy for me to pick up on. It's no t really an issue until you TAKE THE CAMERA OFF OF AUTO...I really suggest you all do that lol. This one did really well in low light. I mean SURPRISINGLY well.
Hp/ Hewlett-Packard Photosmart M537 Price $99.95.
Now I have NEVER used this camera but I have seen pictures from it. They look REALLY good. If you don't plan on printing above a 8x10, then this would be great for you. On a budget? Still great. HP has come a LONG way with cameras. My first digi was a HP that came with a printer! IT WAS AWFUL!!! LOL, but these pics were REALLY good and the person that took them, kept the camera on auto! LOL
Sony Cyber Shot-DSCw55 Price $169.95
I have NOT had a chance to play with this but if you are just looking for something to sling in your purse, but still want a good pic, I think this may be a good choice. If you always forget to take your memory card out of the card reader....don't have a fit...this one has an internal memory card but you can also use an additional card if needed. That is a pretty cool feature!
CANON** Be still my heart lol**
Canon Powershot SD750 Price $264.99
This is my first choice. It has some awesome features.
More Canon goodness! LOL
Canon Powershot SD1000 Price $170.95
This one is also really good. It has a FEW different features, and the price is a bit less (because the upgraded version is above this one), but still a great camera.
So, did you see something you liked?!! Want to know which one I am going to order for MY purse!?!? Gotta wait until it get's here! LOL
Hope this info was helpful to someone!!
Have a great day! Toodles!
