Best Buy Cameras

As a blogger I think we all dream of being one of those bloggers that take the really awesome photos. Am I right? Up until September I had a camera phone and by that I don’t mean it was a really good one. This past September I purchased a GE for about $150 but it doesn’t take the shots I really want.

Now I always dreamed of having one with a lens that I could adjust by placing a different lens on it but as the holidays came and went I kind of gave up, all our “extra” money would go to the kids. Yes, you know I’m that type of parent, I buy my items on clearance and it takes you to bend my arm for me to even do that. So I decided to drop a few hints this holiday season and post a few cameras I wish to have from Best Buy.

When it comes to Best Buy I don’t live near it but I love the fact you can order whatever you want from the site and it will still get to you. Today is the LAST day to order movies and/or music from Bestbuy if you want it to arrive by Christmas Eve.  The order I am doing this is the cheapest price to the most expensive/most desired by me. hehe

TIP: Do NOT forget that every camera will require a memory card because they don’t automatically come with the camera.

The Samsung Galaxy 1 16.3 megapixel digital camera: This Samsung Galaxy 2 digital camera’s 16.3-megapixel, 1/2.3″ BSI CMOS sensor allows you to capture sharp images and high-definition video footage. The 4.8″ touch screen simplifies operation, and built-in Wi-Fi makes sharing stored files easy. A digital camera that allows you to shoot, share, and use Android Apps

–  I love the fact that this one is sleek and would definitely fit in a jacket pocket, side of my purse, etc. I think this is definitely a nice camera and would be a great one for a beginner wanting to learn how to use one. (BalletGirl would be perfect for this one, course I’d take it too)


Sony Alpha a6000 Compact System Camera with 16–50mm Retractable Lens: Start capturing realistic images and HD video footage for yourself or your clients with the Sony Alpha a6000, which features a 24.3-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor and comes with a 16–50mm lens that’s lightweight for easy transport. When you’re all set, just connect your devices via the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi to share photos with loved ones. Come in Silver or black.

–  This one definitely has more features compared to the first one. With video footage this would be great come graduation time in June. I love that it has a bit of a lens (still not one I can take off but it’s a start) I think this is slightly more advanced so for someone that is already learned the basics and is ready to play with the camera a bit more (SoccerBoy).


Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera with 18–55mm VR lens: Achieve crystal-clear shots and high-definition movie footage using the D5300, which comes with a 18–55mm lens that uses VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization to limit the effects of camera shake and vibration. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you wireless connect to compatible mobile devices, so you can easily share captured footage with friends, relatives, clients and more.  Single-point autofocus helps you focus on that one scene you want with a clear view, no more people complaining about those fuzzy pictures you take. Captures 5 action shots per second, make sure to catch the entire graduation from the moment they call our son’s name to the very end.

–  Immediately I’m attracted to this one for multiple of reasons. 1. This has the lens that I want. 2. you can pull out the screen to see the photo or video as you are snapping away. 3. no vibrations which means when someone grabs your arm or bumps you you will not get that streak of a picture. Woo hoo! I love it! I want it! Can I please, please, please have this one? This would give me the really great quality photos that I dream of having for my blog.

The three featured cameras above from Nikon, Sony and Samsung, all come equipped with built-in Wi-Fi so you can share amazing photos with ease. Imagine directly loading them to all your social sites right there on your camera. Currently the camera I have does NOT have that so I have to plug it into my computer to download, fix and then send them, which of course means I can never upload to Instagram but with any of these three I can. Best Buy is definitely the place to go for cameras or your camera needs so if you are looking for something else try hoping on over to their Best Buy Holiday Gift Center page and check it out. You never know what you’ll find.  If you have one of these cameras I’d love to hear your thoughts/opinions of them.

  2. I would love to see those underneath my tree as well. I really like my DSLR, but an upgrade definitely would be beneficial.
