If you’re an entrepreneur or creative, you know how important it is to have high quality photos. The pictures you put on your website and social media are often the first thing that current and potential clients see, so you want to make the best possible first impression!
Knowing that you need high quality images also means you need a high quality camera to take these photos! But, before you panic, take a deep breath and relax. We’re going to walk you through 5 affordable cameras that won’t make you cringe when you see the price tag!
Nikon Coolpix S7000 ($229.99)
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is the least expensive on our list, but it gets the job done if you’re on a budget! This 16-megapixel camera is thin, portable, and lightweight, so it’s perfect if you’re always on the go. Some of its features include optical image stabilization, video recording, and 20x optical long zoom capability.
Nikon Coolpix B500 ($259.99)
If you’re looking for something that feels a bit more like a classic DSLR, then the Nikon Coolpix B500 is for you! This camera will more than hold you over until you’re ready to upgrade. With Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC capabilities, this 16-megapixel Nikon will allow you to take high quality photos and videos all day long.
Canon Powershot SX720 ($349.99)
Moving up a bit in price, we have the Canon Powershot SX720. While this camera is more than the two previously mentioned, it’s worth it for the quality. This 20.3-megapixel camera has Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities, pop-up flash, and 40x optical zoom! Not only does it take high quality images and videos, but it’s extremely compact and lightweight. If you’ll be shooting photos and videos on a fairly frequent basis, this camera is ideal!
Sony Cybershot DSC HX-720 ($338.00)
We of course can’t have an affordable camera list without a Sony! The 18.2-megapixel Sony Cypershot DSC HX-720 has a 30x optical zoom, viewfinder, and pop-up flash. It’s comparable to the Canon SX720, but is geared for those who are Sony lovers!
Olympus PEN E-PL8 ($649.00)
We’ve saved the most expensive for last! If you follow any fashion or lifestyle bloggers, they you’ve more than likely seen this stylish camera floating around on their Instagram. The 16-megapixel Olympus PEN E-PL8 has everything you could possible need in a camera and then some! Stocked with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, flip touch screen LCD screen and interchangeable lens capabilities, we see why it has a steeper price! (We’ll be adding this one to our wishlist)
As you go about taking pics for your brand, you might want to switch it up by trying out different lenses! If you don’t necessarily want to splurge on new lenses, a great option is to rent them! This way, you can still take professional quality photos without your wallet having to go into hiding!
We hope this list helps you on your quest for an affordable camera to take your brand to the next level! If you have personal experience with any of these cameras, we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
