Digital cameras are totally indispensible these days. They don’t require expensive film or developing time, they’re easy to use and you can quickly upload and share your pictures to friends and family with an internet connection.
Canon is a popular choice in this market, with a selection of models marketed to a huge range of needs. So whether you’re an amateur enthusiast or a professional photographer, here are three things you need to know about Canon cameras before buying one.
Think about megapixels. While more megapixels are obviously great for higher resolution pictures, you’re unlikely to need more than 6MP if you’re just taking pictures for personal use. Professionals would usually want closer to 18MP.
Batteries – do you need to replace them, or is the camera rechargeable? While rechargeable models can be convenient around the house, if you’re planning on taking your camera on long-distance trips where power outlets aren’t available, using a battery model might be best.
Weight – it’s useful to pay careful attention to how much a camera weighs, especially if you’re planning on carrying it around for long periods of time.
