25/03/2019 2:37 PM

Now that Digital Photography has been around for a while, there are several distinct branches that are well developed, with varying models and price points in each. Where does one begin when choosing the perfect digital camera for them? Hopefully, this overview of the best Digital Cameras for Photography can shed some light on this for you.

Best Digital Cameras for Photography in 2019

Best Compact Digital Cameras

It is safe to say that the Digital Compact camera is much less popular in 2019 than it was a few years ago, thanks to the prevalence of smartphones and their very capable built-in cameras. That being said, there are some things that the best compact digital cameras are still the right choice for, and some models are more worthy of your consideration than others.

Canon IXUS cameras have been a mainstay of the point and shoot sector of the market, and their current models contain the same characteristics that have made them a contender for the best small digital camera for some time. These cameras are not only small enough to be comfortable to carry around for a night on the town and to swiftly stow away in your bag when not in use but they are also remarkably easy to get a handle on. Even a complete novice can become a master of the operating systems and controls of these pocket-wonders, in next to no time.

If you are looking at a digital camera for kids, you can start with IXUS, or you can look for something a little more rugged, such as an underwater digital camera. These cheap underwater digital cameras are the best option for the most adventurous beginner, as their shockproof build saves you from worrying about the camera slipping out of smaller hands. For the even more adventurous out there, you might be on the lookout for something tougher still, such as the best underwater camera for snorkelling. These cameras are rated to go to depths that you would probably never end up yourself but it is good to know that they are strong enough if you are ever feeling particularly game. The best underwater camera for Scuba Diving is the camera that will allow you to safely survey the ocean's depths without a care for the wellbeing of your Digital Compact Camera. If this is something that you think you might be into, consider a tough compact camera that is compatible with an underwater housing.

If you are heading abroad you are looking for something portable, versatile and easy to use. There are a number of travel-friendly compact cameras on our shelves, with each of them sharing a similar feature set of easy-to-use controls, versatile zoom ranges and portability. Travelling can get expensive though, so if you are attempting to save a little spending money for your trip, at Ted's camera stores we have the best travel cameras under $500, such as something in the Panasonic Travel Zoom range. The last thing you want is to be still coming to terms with the user interface while on the go, so be sure to keep an eye out for something that the salesperson says is the best easy to use compact digital camera.

The Compact Digital Camera market has branched off into several unique sub-sections, including the retro-themed Instant Photography market, and the enthusiast-friendly Advanced Digital Compact range. The best instant camera is the one that invokes the past but still has an eye on modern functionality. Head to the Polaroid digital camera or the Fuji instant camera pages on our website to find out more on this topic.

The advanced section is available for those that are quite simply hunting for the best point and shoot digital camera on the market. Most brands have tried their hand at this, as it is an area of interest for not only enthusiasts but also for professionals who are searching for a small digital camera to back up their kit. If you want a camera for a specific use, such as a point and shoot camera for landscape photography , our advanced digital compact camera section will have various offerings, including a full frame compact camera, or a Fujifilm digital camera, as this brand has been a mainstay of this range for the last few years.

Best Mirrorless Digital Cameras

Undeniably one of the biggest booming sectors of the camera world is that of the Mirrorless Digital Camera. Whether you are looking to find the best Mirrorless camera for travel or the best affordable camera for landscape photography, Ted's cameras will have something suitable.

Mirrorless cameras are hugely popular due to their ability to rival the quality of DSLR cameras but in a more portable package. As with every other segment of the market, these cameras are available at different price points and in different sizes, from the entry-level compact mirrorless camera, right up to the professional level medium format digital camera.

Mirrorless cameras have much in common with both Compact Digital Cameras and DSLR cameras, depending on the model and budget. The most basic mirrorless model will often lack more advanced manual features, in favour of a user-friendly point and shoot interface. In 2019, most of these models have an emphasis on connectivity. These digital cameras with WiFi, Bluetooth, or similar are hugely popular for easily taking high-quality photos and videos on the go and sharing them with favoured social media platforms on the fly.

Enthusiast-level Mirrorless cameras, however, will mimic the controls and user interfaces of DSLR cameras, albeit in smaller packages, that are great for travel and for partnering with you in your day-to-day life. Olympus OM-D cameras are especially popular in this budget, with a design and characteristics that harken back to the company's OM range of 35mm cameras.

Higher-end Mirrorless cameras are designed with spectacular image sensors capable of seeking out every little detail in a scene, from the brightest highlight to the darkest shadow. Here at the top-end of the mirrorless category, you will be poised to locate the best digital camera for night photography. Exciting new high-end formats from both Canon and Nikon, come with the promise of a lineup of premium quality lenses to make the most of their newly designed cameras. This is an exciting time to be actively searching for a Mirrorless camera to call your own.

Best Digital Cameras for Photography in 2019

Best Digital SLR Cameras

At one stage the Digital SLR camera was seen of as a purely professional photographers tool, with the idea of a beginner owning one seeming almost laughable. While the DSLR section of our website is still the right place to search for the best camera for professional photography, it is also a viable option for you to find the best cameras for photography beginners.

Ted's Camera Stores offers the best deals on Digital SLR cameras, with competitive pricing on all models from the best budget Digital SLR camera to full-frame professional bodies. The battle for the best Digital SLR camera is constantly raging, with Canon Digital SLR cameras and Nikon Digital SLR cameras being particularly popular for shooters of all backgrounds.

Some keen photographers are still shooting with film and are keen to purchase their first digital camera. Why not start at the top with a Digital SLR? Digital SLR cameras still carry with them the hallmarks of 35mm SLR cameras of old, down to their leaning towards manual functionality, their optical viewfinders, and their ability to produce high-quality images under all types of shooting constraints. In 2019, DSLRs also feature the latest in modern functionality, including large and vibrant screens to review your shots, the ability to store countless images on high-capacity memory cards, and often built-in WiFi connectivity. This permits very little downtime between image capture and sharing on your favourite platform. 

If you have a future professional photographer at home, consider starting them out on the right path and take a look at our selection of DSLR cameras for kids. These cameras are great for beginners, as they provide you with plenty of room to grow as you learn. You can start out shooting in fully automated modes, and move on to utilising more manual control as you become more confident in your photography skills.

Heading overseas? Don't be put off by the perceived bulk of DSLR cameras, and consider browsing our selection of more compact models in hopes to find the best DSLR camera for travel. When you hold your DSLR camera in your hand for the first time, you might just be surprised at how comfortable it feels and how intuitive the controls are, and when you upload your first set of pictures from your new camera, we are sure you will be happy you made the jump. The only question you will have for yourself is, what took me so long?
