Posted on July 11, 2016 by iceprints


If you have always loved capturing life on film, then you might already have the perfect digital camera to fit your needs. However, if you have recently discovered your love of taking pictures and are on the hunt for the perfect camera, you may find that the variety of choices on the market today are huge, and you can easily become overwhelmed with the choices.

In today’s modern world, not only are there a ton of digital cameras to choose from, but there are also many things that can be done with those photos once they are taken. From having your priceless memories etched on slates to having them put on cups and glasses, you want to have the perfect shots to send in with no flaws. The way to get that is with the perfect digital camera. With that being said, read on below for some tips to help you choose the right digital camera for your photography needs.

Know What You Need

In reality, there is no “best” digital camera. The best digital camera is the one that suits your needs. The best thing to do is think about why you need your camera. Ask yourself the questions below for an answer.

What scenarios do you see yourself using your camera for the most?

Does the camera need to be lightweight enough to fit in your purse or backpack?

What type of budget do you have? Remember, cameras can range from sort of expensive to outrageously expensive, so knowing your budget is very important.

Research the Types of Digital Cameras on the Market

There are three main types of digital cameras on the market today. They are DSLR, mirrorless and compact. Do your research on each of these types of cameras online to see if they meet your needs after answering the questions above. Does one of them fit your budget? Is it lightweight? Can you use it for your intended purpose?

Study Reviews

Never just go out and buy a digital camera. Instead, find the brand you think you might like, then read the reviews on it instead. You can read reviews on the brands website. However, the best reviews will probably come from social media sites where the reviews aren’t biased. Reviews on places like Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites are sure to have the truth in them, not be put there by someone who is being paid to write a review.

Now Try Out the Cameras!

You have followed all of the above steps and are eager to grab the camera for you and go. Instead, of jumping the gun, try out the different cameras instead. The way the camera feels in your hands is the only way you are going to find the right one for you. Trust me; you just know when you have found your match.

These are just a few tips to help you get the right digital camera to suit your needs. Once those pictures are taken, don’t forget to send them to Ice Prints to make them into amazing slates as well.
