Are you looking to buy a camera for:

  • Still Photography
  • Vlogging
  • Video Production

Here are a few videos with new overviews of your choices. First from Tony Northrup is a general overview and specific recomendations for various types of photography. He start with lower-cost options and then goes up to crazy-high prices. You might find something useful in his lists.

Next up is Camera Conspiracies guide to vlogging cameras. He offers a lot of relatively lower cost options and details on your choices and tradeoffs.

Shout in the comments below if you have any questions on cameras, features, composition, aesthetics, or anything else. If you’re shooting still images, you should definitely shoot RAW over JPG (or both). For your RAW images you’ll need one of these:

  • Adobe Lightroom
  • Capture One
  • The Software that came with your camera

You can use Adobe Lightroom on the computers in the Horn Center or in the Spidel Center.
