Here are reviews of 3 good professional cameras under $250 that you can start out with in photography.
I grew up with my parents always taking pictures — whether it was a birthday, picnic or a family affair with relatives. I always enjoyed looking at the dozens of photo albums that were accumulated over the years. It was enjoyable because I always saw something new in the photos every time that I would look at them.
As an adult I love taking pictures as a result of my parent’s influence. I am always noticing a great shot for a picture when I am out gardening, hiking and swimming. I realized that I needed a upgrade from my cell phone camera to capture a more vivid and expressive picture. So I have started my search for a good professional camera under $250 that was easy to operate, stylish and affordable. It also had to take amazing pictures showing all the the colors and surrounded scenery.
My cellphone camera lacks the ability to show a clear and detailed picture. I love to hike trails in my area and take pictures of birds, trees and all sort of scenes in nature that go overlooked. For example, on the trail where I hike there is a large tree that I always pass with a hollowed out hole where a large snake lives. I need a camera that has the ability to zoom in, so that I don’t have to get close to that rather large snake to obtain a detailed picture of its home. I also need the camera to have great resolution, to be able to capture the morning dew on a leaf or display the wonderful colors of a butterfly.
So here are the results of my search for all of the above on Amazon:
1) Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300/B Compact Zoom Digital Camera
To me, this is the consummate professional-level camera for someone who’s just starting out in photography. It’s compact, has a zoom-lens and even comes with a kit for professionals (including a tripod and carrying bag). The price is also very nice (about $210 as of this posting) considering the very high rating it gets from users.
2) Samsung WB1100F 16.2MP CCD Smart WiFi & NFC Digital Camera
This is a very modern hi-tech camera that also happens to be very affordable. I like the color (deep red) and that it allows you to share your photos instantly with family and friends. The camera’s zoom capabilities is amazing — it can take long distance shots very easily. It also allows you to film HD-quality video footage as well (maybe it’s time to try my hand at shooting some movies in addition to photography? We’ll see). It’s an awesome deal with many positive reviews from users.
3) Olympus Stylus SZ-15 16MP 24xSR Zoom 3″ Hi-RES LCD- Silver + 8GB SDHC + Deluxe Case + Extra Accessories
This camera is a nice pick if price is a bit of a concern in addition to quality. As of this publishing it’s on sale for $99.99 and includes free shipping. I was impressed with all of the added accessories included (tripod, cleaning kit and more). I also liked that it comes with an 8GB memory card as a bonus. Another impressive feature is the camera’s ability to capture panorama shots.
Honorable mention: The Canon Powershot ELPH 150 IS Digital Camera
This camera was stylish, lightweight and has all of the capabilities that I require, though it might not be considered a professional-level cam. It’s very affordable and has a high rating on Amazon.
Scanning these choices, I believe that I like the Samsung camera best. It seems like a solid choice if you’re looking for good professional cameras under $250.
Have fun taking photos!
