Photography Equipment Guide
For over 12 years we have taught people how to use hundreds of different digital cameras, so we are well placed to give you some advice before you buy. Cameras fall into a few main types which is a good way to try to sort out what you might prefer – after all people have different requirements. The types are Compact, Bridge Cameras, DSLR and finally Interchangeable lens compacts which are also known as Compact System Cameras. In terms of the quality you can expect, it will be Compact at the lowest then Bridge or advanced compact, then MILC then DSLR. You may notice that this relates generally also to price !
So ‘you get what you pay for’ is a sensible way to look at it. You are advised to avoid second-hand cameras and especially lenses through Online auction unless you know your way around very well and go for a seller with a good reputation. We recommend Amazon as extremely good value for new photographic equipment and with a return policy second to none which is why we are an Associate – we have links in this guide to Cameras and other equipment if you are thinking of buying.
