“Hey Chris, we were thinking about buying a DSLR.”
“What? Why? No, oh god, why?!”
When it comes to answering the camera-related questions of people who are soon to have children, this is usually how the conversation starts. When someone wants to buy a brand new camera, it’s for a good reason like the fact that they’re having a new kid. But there are parameters in place: it needs to be simple to use, it needs to have professional image quality, and it can’t be too expensive. Typical, right?
I’m going to let you in on a little secret that many of us photographers have known for a couple of years now: you don’t need an interchangeable lens camera like a DSLR for professional looking images.
No, really, you don’t. What makes the images so great are the combination of the sensor and the lens, but there are fixed lens cameras that can do the same job of many of those cameras in an even more affordable package and smaller. Of course though, there are also a couple of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras that do a great job.
Here are five of our favorite cameras for the new parent.
When Nikon talked to us about the D5500, we generally thought it was a step in the right direction. After spending a while with it, we tend to agree with that opinion. As far as business sense goes, the Nikon D5500 is a safe bet and doesn’t rock the boat too much. Instead, it gives incremental upgrades that folks will love like 5fps shooting, a deeper grip, Wifi connectivity, very fast focusing abilities, and most importantly the ability to use lots of Nikon’s lenses.
To be honest, the Nikon D5500 is a great camera. We mean that from the bottom of our heart–but at the same time we think that it’s time for Nikon to try to push things a bit further.
In today’s Edition of Cheap Photo, we’ve found new rebates available on the Zeiss Touit lenses along with much more like Olympus OMD EM5 discounts. Check them out after the jump.
