The price of a camera will vary depending on what you’re looking for and we’ve seen a basic digital camera on Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target for as little as $49.00, but if you’re looking for a professional camera for a photography business the cost could be as much as $5,000.00. Below we have listed a number of quality cameras and their price ranges to help you learn more about the cost of buying a camera.
The cost of a digital camera will be determined by a variety of features such as the cameras optical zoom level and megapixels which affect the quality of the pictures. Additionally you’ll pay a tad extra for a professional camera that is LCD, optical, or one that acts as both.
Other Considerations on Camera Price: There are two types of sensors for digital cameras, CCD and CMOS, plus your image stabilization will either be optical, electronic, or dual. Most cameras will have a resolution between 480 P – 1080 P (1080 P being the best) and you may want to upgrade to a memory card, which typically ranges from 4 GB to 32 GB.
The final cost to consider will be the cameras accessories such as a tripod, camera case, cleaning kits, batteries, lens attachments, and flash.
