3 Questions to Ask When Buying a Camera.
You have an iPhone and the pictures are good, but you’ve seen your friend’s camera and the pictures they take with their nice camera are great. You know the one, you can change the lens and it zooms in and out. You want one, but how do you decide which one to buy? Well, I’m here for you. Here are 3 questions to ask when buying a camera.
First off, let me tell you that I first bought my camera when my husband was in medical school. The money was tight, but I believed in investing in a camera. My father-in-law told me that I would never regret buying a camera and I never have. I saved up all of my birthday present money and borrowed my Christmas present money and waited until Black Friday. I bought a Canon Rebel at 4 a.m. at Staples. It was awesome.
But, before you buy, let’s do some research and really get to the bottom of why you are buying a new camera.
When you are considering buying a camera, ask yourself these three questions:
- Why am I buying a camera? Are you buying a camera to take better pictures of your baby? Will you use it for your son’s soccer game? Do you want to become a photographer? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you decide which type of camera to buy.
- How much money can I spend? Photography is a very expensive hobby and I could spend all your money on great equipment. Having a budget will help you narrow down which camera you want to buy.
- How much time will I invest in learning my camera? Different cameras do different things. Some require more knowledge and learning while others will take care of everything for you.
Take a few minutes and answer these questions truthfully before you start researching your camera. Believe me, it is easy to get caught up in the hype of a shiny new camera. If you go in with these 3 questions answered, you will be more prepared to make a better decision. And you will be ready to move on to my next article that finds which camera is right for you.
