What Camera Should I Buy: Holidays 2011

What digital camera should I buy? It’s a question I get a lot, so I’ve identified some favorites with the help of Consumer Reports.

If you’re gonna buy one, follow the links, eh? They’re affiliate links so I get a small percent and you pay the same price you’d pay going on Amazon directly. :)

Best digital camera december 2011

  1. Looking for a low-priced but highly rated slim camera? The Panasonic DMC-FH25K tops the ratings on Amazon. It’s $146 bucks.
  2. Looking for a mid-priced advanced feature “point and shoot”? The Canon Powershot G12 tops the list. It’s a steal at $379 with top ratings by Consumer Reports and high consumer ratings on Amazon.
  3. Looking for a smaller, lighter camera that still allows you to change the lense? That’s either the Sony SLT-A55VL¬†($799) or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 (also $799) that I own. It takes great pictures and video, and I like the depth of field with the lense.
  4. Finally, looking for an SLR with more advanced features? Check the Canon EOS 60D ($1119) or Nikon D7000¬†($1499). These are obviously for advanced users as they’re not cheap. If you feel like buying me a Christmas present either one would be fabulous.

Then there’s this option if you’re in debt like me, and are feeling¬†nostalgic.

  1. I thought you were babysitting this weekend. Where did you store the kids while you were writing two blogs?

  2. Man, I want a DSLR so bad, especially the Canon 60D. I could use it for so many projects for my “job,” but the 60D definitely out of my price range. *sigh* If I ever get it, though, I’ll use your affiliate link because by that time it’ll be old technology and super cheap.

  3. Too bad you don’t have any lenses linked. I’ve probably spent at least four times as much on glass as I did on the body.

  4. I think that Nikon D3100 is the best for beginners and makes a wonderful gift. It’s really good DSLR camera and it’s cheaper than 500 dollars! I really recommend it.
