So you’re in the market for a camera but you don’t want to settle for something basic or cheap, you want one of the best cameras currently on the market — something seriously high end. But when it comes to expensive gadgetry you don’t want to end up overpaying for something that isn’t actually that great. So what should you be considering when you’re shopping around?
1. The size of the body
The body is the key component of any camera, and it’s not something you should really ignore. The thing about cameras is that they drastically vary in size depending on which one you’re looking at, from the smallest pocket-sized cameras to the larger DSLRS that need a shoulder strap to be carried around safely. Most of the high-end cameras fall into the latter category, but there is still some variation to be found. You need to decide what’s right for you by looking at the size and weight of the models that you’re considering. Chances are when you’re using your camera you’ll be carrying it around for a long time, so make sure it’s not going to be overly cumbersome. Plus remember that bigger doesn’t always mean better, plenty of smaller cameras pack a serious amount of punch.
