A milestone birthday. An anniversary party. A romantic cruise. These are just a few of the momentous occasions you want to photograph and record. To get the best camera equipment to freeze those memories in time, here are some things you should know.
Choose A Model That Delivers
DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) and compact system cameras offer a unique benefit point-and-shoots don’t: You can use a different lens for every scenario. Either model can deliver high quality, lifelike photos and videos. Additionally, both feature manual settings that give you more control over how your photos look.
Take Better Photos & Video
Most cameras are equipped with a plethora of special features that streamline your photographic experience. Scene settings, optical zoom, and image stabilization are standard on many models, but you probably won’t find these capabilities on a smartphone’s built-in camera.
Adjust The Lighting
Because lighting directly impacts the appearance of a photograph, accessories such as camera filters and flashes can brighten shadows and sharpen distant landscapes. Among other purposes, a flash may help reduce red-eye, whereas a filter blocks glare from your DSLR or compact system lens.
Try A Durable Camera
Durable cameras aren’t simply for extreme sports enthusiasts, but rather for anyone who wants a camera that can reliably withstand a dip underwater, cold temps, sandy beaches, and accidental drops. Unsurprisingly, durable cams have become quite popular with parents of small children.
