The answer to the question what sort of camera do I need, largely depends on what you plan to use it for.
You may be an aspiring photographer or you may want to get into video making.
It’s best to get down to the bottom of what you want to use it for and then go from there with the features that you want the camera to have included.
You can narrow it down and always add to that list later on but this series on How to Choose a Camera for video is a good start.
- Always start out by figuring out what kind(s) or content you want to use your camera to create.
- Figure out your budget early, but don’t forget that you can rent equipment or buy it used if buying it new is unaffordable.
- Use specific Google keywords to start narrowing down the range of cameras under consideration.
“This way I’ll know what I absolutely have to get for my camera and what is optional.
If I can somehow get the features on my want list into my final decision, it’ll be great. But again, these won’t be deal breakers.”
