A few people have asked me what camera I’d buy and from which store. I’m not quite on the market for a camera because my old Panasonic is good enough, but here are some tips (don’t worry- I may be making money from online video sites but I have no stake in camera manufacturers.
One caveat: I do make money if you go shop at Amazon via this link. Some guy bought ink cartridges via this link once and I made $5.
How to pick:
Before I purchased, I’d identify a model favored by PCMag, ZDNet, CNet or Consumer Reports (although their models are often outdated). Previously I wrote about this Canon Elura that looks nice. And here are some decent action cameras I reviewed last month.
Where to buy:
To purchase I’d check Amazon, BestBuy and Circuit City. I’d also check out B&H. I’ve never purchased anything from the company, but the folks in the VideoMaker blog seem to favor B&H for price and service. Can’t tell you whether there’s a connection between B&H and Videomaker or whether these comments were “stacked.” But it looks like a decent place to buy higher end gear.
P.S. I hyperlinked Amazon, BestBuy and Circuit City all to Amazon via my affiliate fee because I’m a greedy manipulative bastard. Have a nice weekend.
