In less than a decade, digital single reflex cameras (DSLR) have become immensely popular with almost everyone of all ages. The stiff competition among the branded camera-makers make it possible to get a digital SLR at a price that is half of what they cost five years ago. But has the prices of equally expensive camera equipments drop?
Truth remains untold. It is not surprising we are overwhelmed by the fancy features and low prices of digital single reflex cameras (DSLRs) that we tend to forget DSLR photography costs more than just the camera body and a kit lens. Many of the newer DSLR photography beginners have fallen prey to flashy and propagated sales advertisements, that dish out mega savings and a bunch of freebies.
Choosing the right camera brand and model is not as simple as it seems. We have to consider 3 main factors: our budget, camera accessories’ compatibility and availability, services and warranty. There are many DSLR photography enthusiasts who started this hobby with so much passion but gave it all up due to one of the three reasons above.
Budget is important because camera accessories like lenses, tripods, flashlights can be awfully expensive. You have to choose the right equipment that best suit your preferred type of photography. Do not make the mistake of spending unnecessary budget on accessories that will not actually help you.
Some camera-makers have a much wider variety of different camera accessories available for their DSLR models than others. This is very important as we all want to be spoilt for choices. Limited camera accessory selections will definitely dampen any photography hobbyist passion.
Service support centers are equally important as they give consumers assurance of any problems and repairs, should something go wrong with their cameras. Imagine the frustration and despair one will feel, if there are no authorize service and support centers within their country or state to help solve their faulty cameras.
Photography is not exactly expensive if we understand our photography range of interest and do our homework. There are photography forums and websites, that offer DSLR Camera consumers information and reading resources. DSLR Photography hobbyists need to spend a little more time finding the right avenues that will help them learn comfortably and fruitfully.
