I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was a young girl. The technology has changed over the years but the achievements have always been the same: to capture memorable images to last a lifetime. But one major difference from my childhood cameras and my present equipment is the ability to share amazing photos with friends and families almost instantly! Many camera’s are now equipped with built-in Wi-fi capabilities (that’s magic to a blogger’s ears), take video and also take superb photos!
Best Buy is my go-to camera store. I’ve never been disappointed with the price points and their knowledgeable store clerks who are always on hand to answer questions. Plus, Best Buy has the latest cameras and camcorders for all of your photography needs. What I really appreciate is their price matching program. I purchased a DSLR last year through Best Buy and they matched a price that I found online. Score!
With the holidays upon us, sharing images with ease is especially helpful when you are miles a part from family and friends. Sure, we can share photos with our smart phones, but photos are far superior from a point and shoot or DSLR. If you are considering a new camera this holiday season as a gift for that special someone or even yourself, here are some cameras to consider- These three cameras from Nikon, Samsung and Sony all come equipped with Wi-fi, video capability and crisp photo quality.
