Whether you're an avid photographer who takes pictures of everything and anything, be it pictures of ropes and laces, corgi dogs, or rainbow socks, or you're a semi-enthusiast photographer who only whips out a camera for special events such as birthdays, anniversaries or house warming parties, you're going to have to spend some time picking out the right camera.

There are just so many options to choose from today that it can be a little daunting picking out a camera. Especially if you don't know much about technology or unaware of what certain camera terms mean. There are just too many camera types out there. From digital cameras to disposable cameras to SLR cameras. Then you have to pick out the right film or setting and that is it's own challenge.

It can be very easy to get confused when all you want is something simple to take with you to your vacation destination for example. In that case, especially if you're a novice photographer, we recommend a basic digital camera. Something that has a few advanced features in terms of settings and conditions but one that is focused solely on picture taking. You're going to want something with a high resolution and decent number of megapixels for good quality pictures. Buy yourself a large SD memory card and you'll be able to store thousands of pictures without having to ever delete them.

Disposable cameras have been around for a very long time. They can be picked up at any drug store or retail store. They're cheap, easy to use and do the job at hand. Take your pictures, bring it in to the photo development shop and they'll take care of the rest. Sometimes you can even get your pictures developed in an hour. It's just that if you need to take a lot of pictures you're going to have to buy a few them as most only take up to 24 pictures.

For those of you more advanced photographers, you might want to consider an SLR or digital SLR camera. SLR stands for single-lens reflex. SLR cameras give the person taking the picture the ability to see exactly what they're taking a picture of through a moving mirror system that's semi-automatic. An SLR camera is perfect for those of you taking pictures of moving objects or sporting events.

These are just a few camera types you have to choose from. Head on down to your nearest electronics store during your break and take a look at their cameras. If you have any questions, the sales associates will be glad to help out.
