    What is the brand of camera you use for taking photos to go along with your articles and reports? What type of camera or cameras have your got so you get the best images for your journalism work?

    I got a Nikon D3200, but I'm not too happy about it. It does the job, but I'd love to upgrade to a better one. I don't take that many pictures however, so a new camera isn't on the top of my shopping list.

    I googled it there and noticed a few reviews on it saying it wasnt the best. What did you not like about it? :p That said, the photo of the train in the @s3_gunzel 's post looks great. :p

    It's not the best camera, but you get what you pay for, considering it's a pretty inexpensive SLR-camera. What I don't like about it is that the picture quality isn't as good as I'd like, and that the end result of the pictures is closer to what you get from a pretty good mobile phone than what a professional photographer would end up with.

    I don't know too much about cameras to be honest, but I've heard from a friend of mine that Canon EOS 6D Mark II is amazing. It's reaaally expensive though.

    Yeah i just googled it there, its around £2,329.00 for one of them, that is alot for a camera. :p I think i would probably pay up to around £500 - £600 for a camera, that said i have not spent anywhere near that much on one before, but i do want a good camera. :p

    I won't buy a new camera sometime soon just because of the price. The next camera I buy is one I'd like to last me for a few decades, so I'll probably search for something around £1,000 - but spending that much money isn't something I'm in a position to do right now.

    The D3200 is more entry-level DSLR, the D5500 allows me to change every setting.

    I don't really have a proper camera for taking pictures. I just use my smartphone to take pictures when I need to, it's pretty good so it's good enough for me for pictures

    My favorite camera when it comes to photo taking is my Canon Powershot SX510 HS. Aside from being handy, I can also get high definition photos. It also has a 30x Zoom capabilities that can be used to get a closer photo of the moon. It such a powerful camera in a cheap price.

    Our first camera was actually an instamatic Kodak that we bought in 1996. Whew, that’s already a museum piece. But our first digital camera is a Canon Powershot model A520. It has a video function aside from the photos with moderate resolution of 4 megapixels. We bought another camera after that, also a Canon. Our latest camera now is a Canon SX130. I think it is 8 years old already but still doing pretty well with the pictures and videos. We had plans of buying a DSLR camera but it’s still not affordable.
