My smartphone has a camera built into it. Why do I need a “real” camera?
As photographically capable as the modern smartphone is, a point-and-shoot, mirrorless interchangeable lens, or DSLR camera will give you definite advantages in image quality and depth.
I am just starting out in photography. What camera should I get?
Because of the huge variety of cameras and brands on the market, there is no easy answer to this question. However, if you are starting out, the best advice we can give you is to get the best camera that you can afford. You’ll want to be able to grow into your camera system instead of quickly out-growing a basic entry-level kit.
Can you still buy film cameras?
Yes! There are many brand-new film cameras on the market with technology and capabilities for everyone, from the professional photographer to the student to the casual retro analogue film shooter. Instant Camera—think of the classic Polaroid—is also popular.
