Choosing a camera, perhaps one of the most difficult decisions there is when it comes to photography. But being a great photographer on a budget isn't as hard as you think. It gets a little intimidating when you're looking at all these DSLR Canon and Nikon cameras. (By the way "DSLR" just means "Digital Single-Lens Reflex") But you don't NEED a big, bulky, expensive camera like those. Granted they are amazing cameras and you def. get what you pay for. But let's face it, the normal "just as a hobby" photographer doesn't have the means to afford one of these cameras (which can run you anywhere from the upper hundreds, to the thousands). All you need is a good digital camera with a few setting options and a pretty decent megapixel. For example, all my images are captured by the Olympus Stylus 1010 10.1 megapixel camera. Which will cost you about $270. Do your research first though! There are so many great cameras out there that will cost you a fraction of the price you'd pay in store. Many websites like Ebay, Amazon, Electronics Expo, Newegg, and Overstock have the same camera for maybe a little less than the sticker price. Just remember, the picture you see on the review screen of your camera, doesn't have to be the finished product, editing a picture the right way, can make any hobby photographer look like pro.

- If in store, check out the different settings, sometimes "auto" won't be your best bet, don't be afraid to experiment.
