If a picture is worth a thousand words then surely that must justify that a proper camera is worth thousands of Rands. Getting the right camera is not as easy as going to the shop and buying it off the shelf. That can be done, but you might not be as happy as you think or worth your while. So much to look at! There is camera lens, camera pixels, camera model plus the brand and what is the camera going to be used for? So many different variables that that play at hand. Next time you go to the camera shop for your new camera keep that in mind. My advice would be to do a little research before you go and splash the cash.
