Buying a new camera

Christmas is around the corner, and you might be thinking about buying a new camera for that special someone, or even a nice gift for yourself!  Unfortunately, buying a camera is harder than ever these days, with so many brands making so many models, choosing a camera can be a more difficult than you first expected! So in this post, I'll be walking you through choosing your investment, from cameras you can pick up for under £100 to cameras so expensive, you practically need to take out insurance when you buy them!

What are you going to be using the camera for? If you're buying a camera to capture memories, I wouldn't bother going out and buying a £1000 camera, as it's full of things you don't need, but on the other hand, if you're a seasoned photographer looking to upgrade, I can't say I'd recommend buying a £50 camera at your local supermarket!

Of course, this is only my particular opinion, and the real decision is yours!

Some people, me included, don't have much money to spend on a camera, so another thing I must mention, is look online! You can find some great deals that you couldn't get in store, but make sure you're buying genuine products!

Having a higher mega-pixel camera doesn't always mean a better camera, there are many other things you want to take into consideration, such as size, photos per second, geotagging, and movie capability!

Some cameras have some really cool features, that can really sway your choice, and depending on what you need the camera for depends what features your looking for! Such as the new Samsung Multi-view (pictured below) that can be great for multi angle shots and the newer Sony Alpha cameras that can take up to 12 photos a second!

Remember to shop around and keep a look out, read reviews, and you won't be disappointed with your purchase!

Happy Christmas shopping! 


just aasking but do you have any recomendation in one XD?

Depending on your budget man, I'm getting the Sony A65, because of it's 10fps, and HD video capabilities, but it comes in at £800, so if you are looking for a cheaper one, I found Samsung do really god point and shooters! :D

Wow! It's awesome! I wanna get one!

I really need one, so I'll start to look all those reccomendations to buy the one that fits to me


You should do a guide on buying a video recorder. I have a flip and was looking for a upgrade in quality!
