There are so many but so many, and I mean MANY amateur photographers out there in the age of social media. And they just keep on multiplying! Something that makes the average Joe think that working with a camera is really easy.
Very far from that. Working with a professional camera can be overwhelming at best, and a nightmare at worst for a newbie who is more familiar with working their smartphone’s shutter. But there’s hope they could learn. Thanks to the best cameras made with beginner photographers in mind, making their first tentative steps in photography easier to deal with.
With an image sensor that is much larger than the one in cell phones, expect quality photos even in low light conditions. Optional flash guns can be attached and more specialized lenses can be added once the photographer gains experience.
The articulated LCD touch screen allows settings to be configured effortlessly, yet perfect for those who rely the camera for selfies and vlogging.

Even down to uploading your video to a computer or plugging the USB into the side of the TV, it’s all really simple.

Excellent quality doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.
