There are so many options when it comes to buying a digital camera, and that means it can be difficult to figure out exactly what you want. But you’re not alone, and lots of people stumble down the road that eventually takes them to the perfect camera. Here are the top three blunders to avoid when settling on the camera that’s right for you.
Buying Beyond Your Needs
If you’re not a professional photographer, you don’t need a professional camera. And beyond the unnecessary expense of buying a fancy camera, you don’t need the bulk that fancy cameras come with. So think about what you want to photograph, and don’t extend yourself beyond your budget. You can practice on a more accessible camera and work your way up to heavy-duty DSLR cameras.
Don’t Worry About Megapixels
Back in the day, megapixels were the main priority for any camera, and even a decimal increase meant a huge increase in quality. But these days, all you need is five to ten megapixels, because with anything more, even a slight miscalculation with the other settings could mean grainy photos.
Don’t Buy Blind
With forums, comment sections and customer review blogs literally everywhere on the internet, there is no reason why you should be buying a digital camera without any kind of outside opinion. Scour those reviews, but be careful to check them against reputable websites to confirm any information you might be basing a purchase on. Remember, knowledge is your friend, especially when you are committing to an expensive purchase and in today’s digital age, there is no shortage of camera knowledge available at your fingertips.
