People are always looking for a Camera to take photographs. We all start out as young children wanting to take photographs. I have seen some children's camera toys and kids love them. I remember being a kid around 10 years old and I got a flash cube camera that took the old film cartridges. I even started using it when I was in my senior year in photography class in high school. Well my pictures were not that good, so I saved some money and bought a Petri 35mm Slr Camera. Yes my photographs got better and so did my grades.
A lot depends on what you are going to use your camera for. If you are a young child, there are some cameras that are not very expensive, but the picture quality is not that good. They also don't seem to hold up with use. My daughter had one and I had to take it apart to fix the camera button a number of times.
There are some cameras in the Beginner Class that are not too expensive and will take a pretty good picture. They are generally smaller and that makes them easier to carry. They are good to take with you to college, parties and birthdays. Usually you will see them as a Point and Shoot Camera. The menu is not to difficult to manage. Some may also have a telephoto lens to take a far away picture. You will also find that the price does very and some are expensive.
Now if you have been using a camera for awhile, then you are in the Intermediate Class. These tend to be the Digital Dslr Camera. Two of the most popular brands tend to be Canon and Nikon. You may be spending $400 to $500 or more depending on what model you choose. They have a more involved menu to work with, but it is not that difficult. I myself have the Canon EOS T6 Dslr and my kids have the newer Canon EOS T7 Dslr Camera. I have found that they take some very nice quality photographs.
Finally you have the Professional Camera Category of Digital and Mirrorless Cameras. Canon, Nikon, Sony as well as a few others make some very impressive cameras in the professional category. They can also be very expensive, but you can find some in the $700 to $10,000 range. I have found that Amazon and Ebay are both excellent places to find deals on Professional Cameras. The menus may be a little difficult to handle, but with time you will learn to use them professionally.
