I tried taking nighttime pictures with my little point-and-shoot camera. Obviously it didn’t work. But nothing ventured, nothing gained.
It sounds like an oxymoron, but every serious writer needs a digital camera. So last summer I bought a little point-and-shoot and started snapping pictures.
And guess what? It’s lots of fun. Now I’d like a camera that can do more than my little point-and-shoot, but which one?
To a novice like myself, camera choices are endless and confusing. I found over seventy-five different brands with hundreds of models in over fourteen colors, including camouflage. And what does a camera do in smile mode?
Then there are the reviews by folks who have purchased cameras—sometimes helpful but not always. For the exact same camera one person wrote “best purchase I ever made”, and another “terrible, using it as an expensive paper weight”.
Black Friday is coming and Best Buy is advertising terrific deals on a Nikon Coolpix L830 and a Canon DSLR Rebel T3i—two totally different cameras. Any suggestions or comments to help a novice?
