Buying cameras, camcorders and drones.

Types of digital cameras.

The traditional camera has evolved into many different versions over the years. You can learn photography with DSLR and mirrorless cameras, snap family pics with point-and-shoot cameras, capture adventures with action or drone cameras or document trips and major events with a camcorder.

Choosing the type of camera you want can take time. Point-and-shoot cameras are user-friendly for those who need something simple and convenient. DSLR and mirrorless cameras give you the ability to change lenses, which can significantly impact the quality and proportion of your pictures. Action cameras are great for bringing along on epic hikes, climbs, ocean outings and ski trips because you can attach them to your body and keep your hands free to tackle the adventure in front of you. Drones and drone accessories give you a whole new perspective of the world by allowing you to record from a bird’s eye view.

Tech for digital cameras is improving every day. So, once you decide on the type of camera you want, you’ll have to focus on which features you need. For instance, if you’re planning to record while carrying a camcorder in your hand, consider a camcorder with image stabilization. This feature will smooth out the jerkiness of your movements.

Getting the most out of your camera equipment.

Once you've uploaded your favorite photos to your computer, you will likely want to retouch, manipulate or totally transform those images with the latest photo editing software. You'll be able to brighten colors, sharpen edges, adjust your exposure settings and more with the right program. With video editing software, you can also edit together footage from your camcorder, drone or action camera to create your own YouTube videos, home movies and adventure reels. Add music and cut straight to the highlights to showcase your talent or make a memorable film that captures important events, like weddings and family reunions.

When you’re getting new equipment, don’t forget to stock up on the necessary camera gear and accessories. Choose from lenses, tripods, chargers, camera bags and other camera equipment. And remember: a memory card with plenty of storage is necessary for most cameras and camcorders.

Cameras and drones also make great gifts for friends and family. Though smartphone cameras are the go-to for many people, personal cameras offer more features than many smartphones. Plus, using an actual camera usually provides you with a higher quality image and will also help your phone save battery and storage space.
