Selecting a Camera and Accessories
Choices, choices, choices. Although any number of prices and features are available, three principal grades of digital camera exist: consumer, midrange, and professional. The first step you have to undertake is, of course, deciding which type of camera and which accessories are really important to you as a photographer. You may regard a digital camera as an easy way to handle photographs for family events and things that happen along the way an inexpensive and user-friendly little camera for casual use. On the other hand, you may be interested in increasing your skill and understanding of photography and want to learn all the "bells and whistles" to become really proficient in photo shooting and editing.
Regardless of which goal you currently embrace (and, make no mistake, many, many people begin with the first and segue into the second), you want to take good, clear pictures and enjoy those camera features and accessories that can help you do that.
This chapter helps you through the process of evaluating and choosing a camera, features, and accessories that are appropriate for your needs and pocketbook. You may want to pay little and expect only a basic camera; or you may want a lot of flexibility and features, and therefore expect to pay more. You want to consider carefully how you expect to use your camera, and choose features and quality accordingly. If you have already purchased a camera, then you can either skip this chapter or read on and start choosing your second digital camera!
