A Few Top Rated Digital Camera Prices

Jul 21, 2008
So, what's your budget for a digital camera? That's one of the first questions a salesman will ask, when they catch you skulking around their shop trying to inconspicuously check out their lineup of digital cameras. It's a hard question for many consumers to answer, when you've never priced digital cameras before. Digital camera prices vary widely, depending primarily on quality and functionality.

Asking what your want your camera to do for you and how you plan to use it would be a far better question to consider before starting your digital camera search. Since digitals range in price these days from $100 to around $5000, price is really to vague a consideration to think about in the beginning. For the sake of discussion, though we could break digitals down by price category. This should at least give you a baseline to start from.

For under $200 there are some pretty nice digital cameras that would suit the purposes of the average photographer. Someone in this category is looking to have a good camera to take on vacation, to the cousins wedding, and to catch junior blowing out the birthday candles.

Anything in the $200 to $500 price range will get you much the same camera as the previously mentioned cameras, with a few improved features. Typically higher resolution LCD screens, better lenses, higher zoom factors, more manual control, and overall better image quality. Don't worry about megapixels, as the image quality of any camera over 5MP will be all but indistinguishable to the average photographer.

In the $500 to $1000 your looking at a cornucopia of entry digital level digital SLR cameras. Models like the Canon XTi Digital Rebel, any Olympus, and the Nikon D40 are good examples. These cameras are capable of taking some truly amazing photos. Plenty of manual control tweaking for the semi serious professional further enhance your picture taking options here. Don't forget to leave money in the budget for different lens choices as well.

If your looking in the over $1000 price category, then to be quite honest you don't need my help. The best digital camera prices for these cameras is really less of an issue. Anyone looking to spend this much money for a camera should let their own personal preferences be their guide. Camera functionality and image quality are far more important at this point.

That should be enough info, to get you seriously started with digital camera shopping. Just remember to stick with your budget, and use the internet to shop around prices. The better you know prices, the more likely you will be able to negotiate with sales clerks. Not that there's anything wrong with taking the plunge and ordering your new camera online. I've made plenty of purchases online with no problems what so ever.
