Basics of Camera Comparison

Camera comparison does not end with the price. And the common belief that the price determines the quality, well it’s absurd. Sometimes the price is mostly because of the name. When you buy a camera, you do not look at a single angle only. You have to see through things and get your facts straight.

Today’s article is about guiding you guys in buying the right camera. This will be very basic so everybody will understand and you’ll remember this easily when you go get a camera for yourself.

Questions Before Buying a Camera :

Before you head to stores and buy a camera, make sure to answer these questions first;

What do you need the camera for?

What do you need from the camera?

 What kind of camera would you want to have?

 What are specs and features that you need?

 How much is your budget?

It is important that you know what you want so you know exactly where to look the moment you step in the store. This will also give you a clearer look on things so you don’t get too overwhelmed and you could choose well.

Now with the comparison, here are the aspects you should look at when comparing cameras.

Size and Weight

Compare the size and weight of the camera. See which suits you or where you are comfortable with.


What do you prefer, touch panel or regular screen. How big would you want your screen to be? Test the illumination and check for reflectivity, some screens are hard to see in broad daylight.


What kind of flash do you need? Will the built in flash be enough or would you want to attach an off-camera flash?

Lens and Zoom

Compare lens range and zoom power, which suits your needs best?


Where would you use the camera for, for travel or at home? Compare camera batteries by capacity. You might also want to consider removable and non-removable battery packs.


The higher the resolution scale, the bigger you can print your picture. Evaluate your needs, would you need to print large-size pictures or not?

ISO Levels

High ISO levels would allow you to shoot in the dark. You might want to ask yourself where would you want the camera for then weigh out your options.

Shutter Range

The speed of the shutter determines the amount of movement you can capture. The faster the speed the more movement you can capture.
