So, it’s two days before Christmas. Here’s the suggested cameras that are perfect for a newcomer (point-and-shoot), a plain old DSLR, and the new medium of Micro Four Thirds cameras. Read on to see the list!
The DSLRs Of Extreme Suggestion
It’s cool. That’s why you should buy it. Actually, it’s well-priced for the power that it contains, so that’s why you should buy it. A 14 megapixel sensor, 108p HD recording with autofocus, and 11-point autofocus for $700 is a great deal on the mid-range/entry-level DSLR. And hey, it’s a Nikon, depending on how you see them, anyway. Nikon Purchase Link
Canon Rebel T2i
It’s Canon, the exact opposite rival of Nikon. It’s more expensive ($900), but has 18 megapixels (if you actually need that many), 3-inch screen, 1080p HD video recording, and plenty of reviewer’s praise. Canon USA purchase link.
The Micro Four Thirds
I’ll only suggest two, and they’re Sony’s NEX-3 and NEX-5. The NEX-5, seen above, has 14.2 megapixels for shooting, 1080i HD video recording, ISO range of 200 — 12800, and a price tag of $650. Its cousin, the NEX-3 has the same sensor, but only 720p HD recording and retails for $550. Sony purchase links.
Point-And-Shoot Cameras On The Budget
These aren’t your grandma’s P&S cameras. They’re 1080p HD shooting, 12 megapixels and up monsters with price tags of $250 and up. They’re the Nikon Coolpix S8100 and Canon Powershot S95.
Nikon Coolpix S8100
Canon Powershot S95
This is the preferred P&S of many, has a 10 megapixel sensor, ISO of up to 3200, 720p HD recording, RAW+JPEG support and is extremely reliable. Specs shouldn’t fool you; the S95 can be better than the S8100 from Nikon depending on your shooting styles. Canon USA purchase link.
Now we here at LaptopMemo wish you a very merry Christmas, and hey, I think there’s some cool cameras in this list that will be very, very thanked for!
