Camera talk

I have realized that most teen bloggers want to become photographers. And most bloggers have a camera or use their mom or dad's camera. Since I have had this blog for a few months I have realized that a camera would be very useful. Plus this month we are doing a lot with my youth group at church. Such as going to see christmas lights, concert, etc. So the camera would also be useful for this as well. I have started looking but I just don't really know what camera would be the best. So I was hoping that ya'll could help me out.

Okay, I have decided that I would go with Nikon. And I have found the following digital compact cameras.
I had first found this one. And since my favorite color is purple I thought it was perfect. It has 16 megapixles and 12x zoom.  But there were no reviews. And when I looked into it more. I then realize this camera  was just released in November and it is not available in the US. :( But do you think I should wait until it comes out? You can view this camera here,   

So I then found this one. The Nikon Coolpix L 610. Which is the same price as the other one. It has 16 mega pixels and 14x zoom. It had four reviews and all gave 5 stars. It runs on AA Batteries instead of a charger. You can see it here.

Then the other day while we were at Walmart I looked at the cameras. And I saw this one. It's the Nikon Coolpix L810. This camera has 16.1 mega pixels and 26x zoom. It was on sale for $199. I can get the 610 on sale for $179. But out of 83 reviews only 54 gave it 5 stars. You can see this one here.

 This is the Nikon Coolpix  P510 with 16.1 mega pixles and 42x zoom! Which is pretty cool. But I wouldn't use that much zoom at all. So with that said would this really be worth it? You can view it here. With all the sales for Christmas going on it would be $350.
Okay so I need you guys and gals opinion! I was going to spend up to $250 on a camera since I don't plan on being a photographer or anything, but as you can see the last one is $350. I really wouldn't want to go over $300 hands down. So please comment below with some advice! :)


  1. Hi Brook!

    I'm so sorry that I didn't answer your question sooner! Things have been occupying my mind lately. :D

    So anyway, I don't know a whole lot about cameras, but if you're looking for a good quality camera that's cheap, and something that you need right away, I would suggest getting either the second to last one or the one above it. But it's up to you though. :)

    Take care, and hope you have a lovely evening!
