THE 5: Cameras for bloggers

As we all know, photography is very important part of blogging. We are just learning about it, slow but steady will get there.
There is always a debate about which camera works best for our needs, so I thought I would ask a professional about it, that being my boyfriend. He’s a photographer and also a geek, so he follows the scene of technology regularly. Plus he knows how blogging looks like. 
Here is his pick:

This is a DSLR camera, so the price for it is great. It has 18MP and ISO 100-12800 (which means it’s also good in darker conditions), it has 3.0 inch articulated touch sensitive LCD, built-in stereo microphone as well as external microphone input and it shoots HD video – which is great if you also do YouTube. 18-55mm is an all-round good lens and if you want something particular, you can change it. The battery lasts for about 800 photos.

2. Sony DSC-RX100M III (803€)
This one is really expensive, but it is great if you are on the go a lot and want to have your camera always with you. It’s compact camera, really small (you can put it in your pocket) but has a lot of very good qualities. It has 20.9 MP and ISO 160-12800. The lens that is integrated (24-70mm) in great to make pictures where the main thing is in focus and the background is blurry. It has a viewfinder that pops-up when there is too much sun and you can’t see the screen (which is tiltable). It also shoots HD video and lasts for about 700 shoots.
If you want a beat cheaper version, you can go for the old model, Sony DSC-RX100MII, which has the same quality of photos, but doesn’t had some extra stuff.

This mirrorless camera is also great. It’s a bigger that the previous one, but not as big as DSLRs. It has 24MP, shoots full HD video and has a screen that shifts half way (great for YT, as you can see yourself). It also has instant sharing via smartphone with Wi-Fi and NFC. The battery lasts for about 600 photos. Tina and I have a previous version of this camera and we love it.

4. Sony WX350 (239€)
If you are on a budget, this one is for you. It was said that this is the best compact camera under 250€. It has 20.4MP and 20x optical zoom. It is small and portable, plus it connects to your phone via Wi-FI or NFC. You can take about 470 pictures before the battery runs out.

5. GoPro HERO4 SILVER (379€)
We all know about GoPro and we all love it, don’t we? This is great if you blog and film as it shoot HD or more quality videos and has an extreme wide view lens. Plus it has 12MP camera, so you can easily take a picture while filming and it will look good. It has a touchscreen and it is waterproof up to 40 meters. It is effortlessly portable and easy to use. It will last you 2 hours filming or 200 photos.

As I was writing this I realized that some of the terms looks a bit odd if you don’t already know them…as I don’t know how educated you, our lovely readers are, I thought I could make a post about the basic the next time around. What do you say?
In the meantime, I hope this helped some of you.
Have a great week!
