When shopping for a new camera, there's a few things you should keep in mind...
- your price range
- desired quality
- preferred brand
- desired functions
- what you want to use the camera for
- your photography level (or aspired level)
Knowing these things can help a sales associate assist you in figuring out which camera is the best fit, and if you're choosing one on your own, making a list of these will help keep you on track during your research process.
