They say the best camera is the one you have on you at the time. With the quality of photos being pushed out on smartphones these days, I’m inclined to agree. However, standalone digital cameras are still technically better than most cameras found on smartphones today. Sometimes, I just want to take a picture whose quality is a step above what a smartphone can offer. I’m having a hard time picking a camera for myself so, I want to know what your standalone camera of choice is.
I’ve never been a camera enthusiast. DSLR cameras are intimidating and confusing to me. What I’m looking for is a solid, sub-$300 camera that’s good enough for an amateur such as myself. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, or even recent for that matter. All I want is a good quality camera that works well in low light and can excel at macro photos. I’ll use this camera for everyday snapshots of things such as landscapes, animals, family and the random flower that grows in a field of weeds.
In my research, I’ve seen that the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 had gotten very favorable reviews. So far, this is the camera I’m leaning towards getting. But I know there are worthy competitors out there that I have never seen. So what is your opinion? Is this camera a safe bet, or do you use something better.
