A Camera for Everyone

In today's world most everyone has a camera!  Camera's come in all sizes, shapes and price ranges.  A week or so ago I wrote a lens inviting people to review their favorite camera Review Your Favorite Camera .  On this page I listed 50 different popular cameras and challenged people to write a review on one of the ones I had listed or if their favorite camera was not listed to write a review on it. 

I was delighted to see all the great reviews.  There were a wide variety of reviews on many different cameras.  I read reviews on point and shoots, iphones, SLR's and a wonderful review on an inexpensive film camera.  The reviews below show some of the wide variety of "favorite cameras" that were reviewed.
  • In this lens, Debs tells us why she enjoys using a Holga.  It is an inexpensive film camera.  Discover Lo Fi Slow Photography with a Holga
  • Grammeio loves her Canon point and shoot camera because it is easy to take with your everywhere.  She tells you why it is her favorite in this review One Great Little Camera
  • Paullenton had a favorite Christmas camera this year and reviewed it in this lens Nikon coolpix 1820
  • Shay_Marie finds that her iPhone is the only camera she needs.  Stop by her lens and find out why she thinks it's the best. iPhone Camera
My two favorite cameras right now are a Canon Powershot sx40 and a Sony A57 .  My Canon is a great point and shoot that can be used in both automatic and manual modes.  It also has a 35 times zoom that makes it great for trips when I want the ease of a lightweight camera but with the versatility of a zoom lens. 

My Sony is my workhorse that I use when I am out photographing lighthouses.  Here is a photo I took with it this past summer.


One of the fun features on my Sony is the wonderful picture effects that I can get on some of its automatic settings.  Here is a favorite that I took of our Christmas tree this year setting it on the black and white with a red pop setting.

You can read about some of the other picture effects on this page Camera Picture Effects.


I now have Photo Bug pages on Pinterest.  I hope you will join me there to share ideas about photography.

If you haven't written a review on your favorite camera yet, I'd love to see one from you.  Be sure to tell us what features you enjoy on the camera and why that particular camera is the best one for you.  And of course, be sure to share some of the photos you took with the camera.

Happy Shooting!

  1. Your photography is always beautiful Mary Beth! While I do think having the right equipment can make a huge difference, I also recognize some people just have an eye for photography. I do believe you are gifted.

    I personally have several cameras. I enjoy using each for totally different reasons. Number one requirement in a camera for me these days is the built in image stabilization. My own hands are simply not as steady as they once were.

    1. Thank you Cynthia. I agree about the image stabilization...two of my cameras have it and it is really helpful when I'm not using the tripod.

  3. I only use a bare bones basic cell phone camera but I am researching upgrading. I enjoyed the iPhone article you shared here, thank you!

  5. OMG, Mary Beth! I absolutely LOVE the black and white with the red pop. It is breathtaking -- though it's not a surprise as your photography is always gorgeous! I so badly want a new camera to go along with my Cannon point and shoot!
