Whether you are a professional photographer, or interested in dabbling in the arts of photography, or just looking to capture future memories, here are some helpful pointers and camera suggestions to guide you in the right purchase.

Photo Quality

When it comes to snapping a picture, photo quality is very important! When purchasing a camera consider the sensor size in your decision. It also helps to read online reviews from other users and photographers. If you are looking for a camera for casual shooting you will want a camera with good autofocus.


While cameras can be on the pricey side, some lower priced models are still quality cameras.

Point and shoot cameras are affordable cameras for casually taking photos of family and friends. They are not too bulky and are complicated for day-to-day use.

A COOLPIX 13.2MP Compact Digital Camera is designed to be used by all members of the family, including younger kids, and features special cartoon effects and a welcome screen that adjusts based on usage in order to provide an easy-to-use and fun operating experience.


A Canon PowerShot G9X 20.1 MP is also another great point and shoot camera. Whether you’re snapping an unforgettable moment on the go or recording an epic video with your friends, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera combines an ultra-slim design with high-performing features for incredible image quality and easy portability.


DSLR vs. Mirrorless

Cameras are usually DSLR or mirrorless, and for someone who is new to the photography world, asking “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?”


A digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) is a digital camera that combines the optics and the mechanisms of a single-lens reflex camera with a digital imaging sensor, as opposed to photographic film.

The Canon T7i DSLR Camera offers advanced imaging capabilities along with a convenient range of controls and connectivity. Utilizing a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor, the Rebel T7i is able to capture high-resolution stills and video with an expanded sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200 to suit working in a wide variety of lighting conditions. The sensor and processor combination also avails 6 fps continuous shooting for working with moving subjects. Benefitting the imaging attributes, the sensor’s design also facilitates Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which uses phase-detection autofocus for quick, accurate, and smooth focusing performance when recording movies or shooting stills in live view. When shooting stills using the optical viewfinder, a 45-point all cross-type phase-detection system is used for quick and accurate focusing in a variety of shooting scenarios.



A mirrorless camera doesn’t require a reflex mirror which is a key component of DSLR cameras. Mirrorless cameras tend to take shoot better video because the view through the LCD and autofocus performance makes it easier and requires less rigging out.

The Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera provides users with a fully-featured system that won’t weigh them down. Packed into the tiny body is a capable 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 8 Image Processor, both of which work together to create sharp, vivid images at native sensitivities up to ISO 25600 and extended sensitivities up to ISO 51200. Video shooting has received a boost with 4K UHD recording possible at up to 24 fps. The EOS M50 also manages some significant body upgrades, with the main addition being a 3.0″ vari-angle touchscreen LCD for intuitive operation and the ability to work at odd angles with relative ease.



Now that you purchased your new camera, don’t forget about the memory cards and the accessories. From 4GB to 128GB, Electronic Express has the memory card you will want!
