how to find the right camera for you

“What kind of camera do you use?” I see this question pop up all the time on blogs. Everyone wants to know how they got that great shot. Sometimes the quality of the pictures can make or break a blog. As many of you know, pictures are so important. Not only do you need excellent content, you need to have great pictures to give your readers a visual of what you are talking about. We always try to take good, clean pictures of what we are blogging about so you all don’t have to guess. Also, if our pictures of craft projects don’t look appealing, would you really want to make them? Sometimes we are successful; sometimes not so much. But we do our best.

We are not camera experts and don’t pretend to be, so when David at Best In Class contacted us about his point and shoot camera comparison site page, we were intrigued. Apparently, he found our disclaimer about having a “crappy camera” quite funny. Being the nice guy that he is, he felt he had to let us know about more camera options out there. Thanks, David!

Best In Class is a product recommendation site that helps consumers find good, solid information on various products. This is great for most of us craft bloggers, because sometimes we'd just rather be crafting than researching cameras on the Internet. And we can’t all afford the super-expensive camera set up, or the time to research the best value for our money. Especially the three Little Birdies, because our crafting budget eats up almost our entire “extra” budget and then some!

These guys give the pros and cons of each camera, plus comparisons with similar models from other brands. You can even tell them which features are most important to you so you can get the right camera for your needs. If you’re looking for a new camera, it doesn’t hurt to give this site a look-see. I think the more information you have, the better off you are, right? Besides, two industry experts that choose to put pictures of themselves spending time with their kiddos on their “About Us” page are all right by me. If you do head over there, let them know the Three Birdies sent you.

Thanks, I love my Cannon S3IS, but my MIL is in the market for a new one, so I'll send her over.
