I appreciate your feedback. I found this camera on amazon. Are you saying that my iphone6 camera would outperform this?
I have no idea what I'm looking for to compare lol
Can anyone explain which is better? This Sony W800/B 20.1 MP Digital Camera or my Iphone6 camera?
I'm going to Spain tomorrow and want to take some decent pictures. Ideally the quality will be good enough that I can blow up the pictures when I get back to a poster that I can frame and hang. If the quality isn't good enough the poster will look grainy and pixelated when blown up. I know nothing of camera specs so any advice is greatly appreciated!!
I use this which I bought a while ago. It's not great, but it gets the job done.
I think good pics have a lot to do with the stuff outside the camera like angle, distance, lighting, etc. So i don't think you really need anything fancy camera wise. I see a lot of good cell phone pics from people who have a much better understanding of photography than myself. Like, I've been photographing my customs for about a year now and I think I'm just starting to understand lighting.
So maybe look up some guides on photographing small scale items, maybe make a light box or buy a cheap pop-up and work on lighting, and probably get a tripod for your phone/camera (this helped me a lot, can't keep my hands from shaking). And just keep practicing, I shoot way more pictures than I'd ever post.
The only touch-ups I do later will be to brighten a pic (again, that damn lighting).
For what you want, I think $300-500 is way too much. It sounds like you just want clear image with decent audio? I personally use an old point-and-shoot from 2008. The footage can get grainy depending on the lighting, but the audio records fine. This is just reference for myself though, I don't send this out to bookers. I think even an iPhone 5 can record sets pretty well.
Check this point and shoot $88
Go youtube test footage for certain camera models to compare. If you just want clear footage with decent audio, you can do so with a tiny camera with a budget of $150 or less. $300-$500 is a cheap DSLR, maybe too much for what your needs are.
My brother has a Fuji - unless you need the hyper-telephoto zoom, there's really not much reason not to buy a compact camera instead. This one is inexpensive, compact, very simple, and charges from USB so you can charge it from your phone charger or car.
I'm looking at this camera:
Are you saying a device meant only to take pictures would give me worse quality results than my Duraforce phone which was not only designed for dual front & back cameras (cheap ones) but also a 1080p touchscreen, wifi, Bluetooth and GSM / HSPA / LTE communications, headphone jacks and a CPU capable of running 3d games?
