If you are looking for a camera for your personal use, then a normal DSLR camera that captures around 10 megapixels images will be a great choice.

  • A built-in image stabilizer.
  • LCD screen for live viewing.
  • Strong and long lasting battery.

Likewise, for fashion, wildlife and films, it would be something different. We will look at this in detail one by one.
