Camera – the time freezer

It can slice through time – even the hardest of times. It can fuel memories. It can freeze anything – even fire.

Cameras for all types

Digital cameras come in four types: point-and-shoot, advanced compact, single-lens reflex (SLR) and camera phone.

Beginner tip

When buying a camera, make sure that it will meet your creative needs in the near future. And remember that you get what you pay for. Don’t expect your phone to take better photographs than an SLR camera. Also decide early on what brand you want to use, because to change camera brands after you have collected ancillary equipment is expensive.

Pro tip

If you have money to burn, don’t burn your fingers by spending it all on the hottest new camera as soon as it is launched, leaving yourself with no money for good lenses. If you have a choice, rather go for the good lens.

What camera to buy

Beginners: Invest in a camera with interchangeable lenses, preferably an SLR camera. An entry-level SLR is adequate or the model just above the entry-level.

Pros: First decide on what crop factor you are going to invest in, depending on what you are going to do with the images. Then decide whether you want a fast, lower image quality camera or a slower camera with superior image quality. If you are a landscape photographer, buy a slow full-frame camera but if you will be taking action shots, buy a fast crop factor camera.
