Buying a Camera

The list here is to get you started in finding a camera that is right for you. As with many things in our lives we like to make sure we are getting the best deal for our money. A quality camera should last you years if properly taken care of. There are some great cameras out there depending on how much you want to spend. There are some great buys for under a $100 but if you can go up in price there will be a good variety in the cameras that are available. For me I bought a Casio Exilm 7.2 mp for about $135.00 and it has served me well for what I use it for. It has been my main camera for over 3 years and I have had no problems.

When buying a more expensive camera you may want to buy used or refurbished. Make sure you can return it if it is not to your liking.
