Camera Evolution

Camera Evolution

My cameras at home.

     I was in fourth grade when I first got interested with photography. Photography is my mom’s hobby so I assume that I got it (passion) from her . I can still remember how I secretly go to my parents’ room and get the camera in their closet and I secretly take a picture of myself there. Well, I guess, I do selfie even before the word selfie discovered. In that same year, I got my first ever camera (Ricoh YF-100 DATE, a film camera). Well, it’s nice! Definitely! (It’s fun to look back in times where in we have to go to a photo shop just to develop those films. Nowadays, I think anyone can do that as long as you have your photo paper and printer with you) I really enjoy using it but there are some problems with this kind of camera. It has no zooming effect unlike what we have on cameras today. Another issue here is the fact that it uses film that I think is very inconvenient and money consuming. Two years after having that camera, as a graduation gift, my parents gave me my first ever digital camera. That is sony cybershot. DSC-W210 (2009, 12.1 megapixels, NO Manual Mode, 4x optical zoom) (visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sony_Cyber-shot_cameras) Unfortunately, I lost it after almost a year. after that incident, I decided to save money to buy a new digital camera. (well of course, I can’t just asked my parents to replace the lost one. We’re not rich.) I was in third year high school when I had completed my money for buying a new camera. I bought Casio Exilim which I can still use today and still in a very good condition. Last June, my parents bought a Sony a330 dslr camera for me. It’s a 10.2 megapixels dslr camera. The ultimate disadvantage in this camera is that it has no video recorder. This is purely made for photography. Well, of course, if only I have a choice back then, I would rather go for a camera having a video recorder and a higher megapixels. (My dad bought that so who am I to complain? hahaha But I’m still thankful and grateful for that! Thanks, Tatay!)

Photography is such a great hobby. Thou, it’s a high maintenance hobby. Know what I mean, right? You really have to spend a lots of bucks here. I would like to remind you, guys, that if ever you are planning to buy a camera, the quality of it must be your first priority. Of course, you wouldn’t want to waste money, right? So, don’t take the risk. Go for a reliable brand. It might cost higher but quality assurance is there and always be there. Do not fool yourself by buying a cheap yet low quality camera. I have some examples below of cameras that I highly recommend . I wish I have those.

Nikon D3100
