Choosing a Camera

Choosing a Camera

Once you’ve determined what sort of photographer you really are (and that may be different from the type of photographer you’d like to be in an ideal world), working through the variables that differentiate digital cameras becomes significantly easier.

Form Factor

Digital cameras come in a wide variety of sizes, and for documentary photographers, small size can be important so the camera fits in a pocket and so the fact that you’re taking pictures doesn’t overwhelm the event. Artistic photographers are often willing to carry larger cameras because of the increased quality and flexibility of larger cameras. Most cameras probably fall in a middle ground, so it’s best to hold the camera to see how it feels in your hand before buying it.
