So you want to buy ourself a DLSR camera, huh? You love taking photos, you’re a shutterbug, you take tons of great photos w/your phone, you’ve got the ‘eye’ and now you want to upgrade, but you don’t know the first thing about buying a camera. There are a few things you need to ask yourself. What are you going to do with your photos? How compact and portable does your camera setup need to be? What type of photos will you be taking? Do you want interchangeable lenses? Do you need video? There’s a lot to consider when choosing a camera. Start out with one that fits your budget and does the basic job you want it to. Over time as you grow as a photographer, you’ll know when to upgrade your gear.
