Wedding photography is important. Unlike photographing sporting events or vacations, you are actually photographing the most important day of someone’s life. To do this properly, you will need a good camera. Follow these steps to find the best digital camera for photographing weddings.
Research digital cameras online and in consumer magazines. Review their features and read feedback from other customers. Post questions in consumer forums.
Look for cameras with a high megapixel range. A common megapixel range for digital cameras in 3-4, this would be fine for a wedding if you are a spectator. A professional wedding photographer would use something with a megapixel range of 5 or above.
Compare optical zooms. You may not be close to the wedding while it is going on so you will need a camera with a good zoom. Look for cameras that can zoom far without having a grainy picture.
Look for cameras with autofocus. An autofocus camera will make your life easier when photographing weddings.
Know that higher shutter speeds mean higher quality pictures. A high shutter speed will prevent blurring during action shots.
Shop around online and at auction sites for the best deal on your camera.
Look for a camera that easily connects to your computer and has plenty of storage. You will want to take many shots at the wedding, and don’t want to run out of memory.
