What the heck does that all mean?
Most of the major manufacturers will be debuting their brand new and improved cameras,printer,scanners,software, etc.
As a matter of fact some of them already have.
Check out some of the new point and shoots at Nikon. More megapixels, higher ISO numbers, more Wi-Fi capable units and image stabilization abounds.
Of course they just introduced the new D80- a 10.2 megapixel DSLR, which we discussed a couple of weeks ago.
Not to be outdone, Canon also has upped the number in their point and shoot line by 2.
And the new Rebel XTi 10.1 megapixel DSLR
Epson has announced some news coming Sept. 27Th.
So if you are in the market for new gear, here is the advice: Wait to buy till you hear what is coming (and figure out the ACTUAL availability ) or take advantage of the inevitable cost savings on the exisiting models.
You see it’s the fate of all things digital. You have to jump in and know that things will be upgraded and replaced. But as with computers , if you wait for the changes, you’ll never make the leap.
Our suggestion for purchasing all of the cameras is to:
1. go to DPREVIEW and read the reviews and some user comments
Decide which features you really need and what is worth the money to you. If its a DSLR, always take into account how much money you have invested in a particular brand as in the lenses. You may want to check out how “backward compatible” the glass you already own is , with the new models. I.E. can you use what you have on the new body.
2. Visit you local camera store and actually handle the cameras. No matter what they look like or features they have, make it feels right in YOUR hands.
3. Find the best price and proper warranty. If you are unsure about an online seller, we highly reccomend you local camera dealer. They will help you fill out your purchase to make sure you have everything you need to get started. (especially the media card, extra batts,filters etc.) And perhaps most importantly…can help with questions or issues with the gear in person. Always a good thing.
And remember…you can always email us here with your specific questions and we’ll be ready help you in your purchase decision.
Photoinduced.com will attending the PhotoPlus Expo and bringing you daily reports on what is on the trade show floor. The good ,the bad, and hopefully something you can use.
OK, we’ll let you know what the ugly is too.
So there you have it.
