Everyone loves to take pictures, and thanks to technology, photography has become more and more accessible to people of all ages!
I’m sure there’s someone in your group of friends or family who has added a digital camera to their Christmas wish list, and I’m here to help you decide which one you should buy! There are different price points and different kinds of cameras that suit each person’s skill and interest, and hopefully my list will answer any questions you have about which camera to buy.
If your little one is always grabbing your digital camera or camcorder, why not get them a camera of their own? This Vtech Kidizoom Twist Digital Camera, is perfect for toddlers! I bought one for my niece and she absolutely loves it.
If your sister or best friend loves to use her camera to take self-portraits or those classic one-handed shots on holiday, she’ll love this Samsung Dualview Digital Camera. It’s super affordable, and has a nifty LCD screen on the front of the camera so you can see what the lens is seeing!
We all have that one family member or mate who is taking photos on a night out, capturing every moment of a birthday party, and even taking photos of their meal at a nice restaurant. Anything and everything is worth taking a picture of in their eyes, so why not get them the Sony 16 Megapixel Digital Camera. Easy to use and packed with the excellent features such as the Intelligence Auto mode, face detection, image stabilization, and HD video recording, they can shoot on the go without any fuss! Plus, you can buy a 4GB memory card with this camera for half price so they can photograph as much as they want without having to worry about memory space!
If your friend has a fantastic eye for great shots and captures gorgeous images even on their camera phone, a “bridge” camera such as the Sony NEX-C3 Digital Camera is a perfect option. This camera has interchangeable lenses so your friend or family member will be able to get creative and diverse with their photos, as well as the option to adjust the settings manually so they have more control over the white balance, ISO, etc, of their images.
For those with knowledge of how photography works, how to adjust the manual settings for a camera and why having interchangeable lenses is important, having a digital SLR camera is the next step. The Canon 550D that comes with two lenses is a great investment for those who are serious about photography, as either an (expensive) hobby or potential career change. This gift will be sure to make any photographer’s Christmas one of the best ones yet! x
