Random question for all my photography-savvy readers out there, what kind of camera do you recommend?
I’m looking for a new one that I can use for everyday life stuff as well as for more decent photos for this blog!
I want to be able to take nice photos (like Rina and Mel) of places I go, swag bags, food and products when I review them. I know I haven’t been around much (new job is taking up a lot of my time!) but I really want to take my blogging up a notch and I think decent photos would really help out.
I don’t need a giant SLR camera since I’m pretty clueless when it comes to settings and stuff for it, but I’m ok with something more advanced than a cheap point and shoot.
I’ve been using a Canon Powershot for some time now and it’s held up really well but I want to graduate from this level of camera. I’d be happy with another Canon or another reputable brand (except for Nikon since I had a Nikon and it was crap!)
Does anyone know where I should start looking, and what features are most important in a quality camera?
Here are some features I would like:
- Video & sound recording
- Decent night time & action photos
- Decent optical & digital zoom
- Timer (so I can take photos of my outfits!)
- Good battery
- Small enough to fit in my purse
- Up to $400
Here are some things I would be using the camera for:
- Outfit photos
- Recipe/food photos
- Photos of friends, family, etc.
- Photos of products I review, swag
- Night time party shots!
- Outside photos
Like I said, pretty basic stuff; but I want them to be really good photos! Lol
Can you help a girl out?
