As a photographer I have tried a lot of cameras. There are a lot of great ones out there. Are you still wondering what to get the budding photographer in your life? Or do you know someone who is still using an old camera? Tired of receiving blurry photos from your best friend? Or maybe you yourself are thinking about breaking into photography or upgrading your current camera. How do you know what to choose?

Not too long ago I wrote the post, How To Choose The Right Digital Camera for the Citizen blog. When shopping you need to know whether or not you are going for a DSLR, compact camera, or Micro 4/3. And what brand name should you choose?

Of course it is ok to do your online research, but there is nothing like getting out here and touching the cameras. At Best Buy you can try out several different brands of cameras to figure out just which one is right for you. Best Buy carries cameras from Nikon, Samsung, and Sony plus many more.
