#CamerasatBestBuy #HintingSeason ~ Best Buy is the ultimate destination for the latest cameras and camcorders

While shopping on Black Friday I noticed some great looking cameras at Best Buy. This year I really would like a new camera. I currently use a smart phone to take my pictures. I have to admit my pictures are not the best. I want a quality camera so that I can take great pics of my PRICELESS moments with my family. 

When I was younger my grandmother told me - time speeds up as you age - make sure to enjoy every minute. Now that I am older - she was 100% right! Time does move faster as we age!   My grandchildren are growing so fast and I do not want another holiday to go by with me not having a quality camera.

Yesterday I went back to Best Buy to check out Best Buy's camera department. I checked out three amazing cameras that I was told are great for quality pictures. The Best Buy sales clerk was so knowledgeable about each of the cameras. Now the hard part for me is deciding which one fits my needs the best. 
  • A DSLR with built-in Wi-Fi so you can capture high quality photos and share them instantly
  • This Nikon D5300 DSLR camera comes with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens that enables you to capture sharp photos and video footage. Optical image stabilization helps prevent blurring to ensure image clarity
  • Also available in red or gray

  • A compact system camera with the World’s Fastest Autofocus
  • This Sony Alpha A6000 features a 24.3-megapixel, Exmor APS-C CMOS sensor that makes it easy to shoot scenes in stunning clarity. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you share stored content across devices.
  • Also available in White or silver

  • A digital camera that allows you to shoot, share, and use Android Apps
  • This Samsung Galaxy 2 digital camera's 16.3-megapixel, 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor allows you to capture sharp images and high-definition video footage. The 4.8" touch screen simplifies operation, and built-in Wi-Fi makes sharing stored files easy.

  38. I use BOTH a camera and a smart phone to take my pictures. It all depends on where I am and if I want to lug around my big bad camera for the duration of a day out. - But there is no comparison as to which takes better photographs - my Cannon Rebel is amazing!

  41. I need a DSLR so badly. I just can't rationalize the price right now with a kid in boarding school and one in private school. I do, however, have some gift cards that might bring that price down to one I can swing! I might have to check Best Buy out.
