O digital photography, how wonderful thou art..

In this world of smartphones, it seems as if everyone is a photographer, with people even taking pictures of their feet on a sunny day at the beach. Realistically though, those people are only at the basic level of photography, the fun level shall we say. Sure, it's fine if you want to still be at this level, go ahead and snap who-knows how many shots of your toddler walking around. For those who want to take photography more seriously though, you deserve better than that small lens on your phone that at max can only do 3x-5x zoom. You deserve a fine quality camera that has more mega pixels than most smartphone cameras could even dream. Please read on if you want tips on selecting the best camera for your own needs.

-Lens Every camera has one, but if you want a specific kind of lens on your camera, there's a wide variety. There's the lens that's already on the camera that can do great optical zoom, and there's even lens that you could even take off and replace with a different one. This leads me to..

-Zoom If you're totally fine with the zoom you have on your smartphone camera and your only wish is to take pictures of food and things you can get up close to without scaring, that's awesome, but if you want to take detailed pictures of wildlife and exotic plants, then having a good zoom will definitely work in your favor. 21x zoom or above that will work out splendidly.

-Low Light The lighting at which you take photos will definitely affect the choice of camera you want. If you're okay with just taking pics during daylight hours, then a small lens one will be good for you, but if you want to take pics at any time of the day, then a bigger lens one to capture more light would be an excellent choice. Just depends when and under what condition you'll take pics.

Those are just some tips to get you started, and have fun on your photography journey!
