Budget Friendly Digital Cameras For Flower Photography

by AbbyFitz

Don't let money stand in the way of your hobby. Great cameras don't have to be expensive. A listing of the best cameras for flower photography under $50, $100, $200.

Many photographers with a passion for flower photos had to start somewhere. To them it was a hobby and they did it in their spare time. They just couldn't plunk down $1,500 or more for a camera and lenses.

I have always loved taking pictures of just about anything. I was the person in the family no one liked to see because I was always snapping pictures.

Eventually I discovered how beautiful and rewarding flower photography can be. I was a single mother with a young child. I couldn't afford the expensive cameras everyone recommended.

Like many amateurs, I had to start somewhere. I started with a little $50 digital Kodak camera and have eventually bought better as I could afford it.

Cheap doesn't mean bad. Most of my early flower pictures are great shots. I took almost every picture in my Nature Walk Through the Ozarks article with an HP Photosmart camera with 3X zoom that cost about $75 at the time.

There are great inexpensive digital cameras for whatever your hobby allowance is.

Best Digital Camera Under $50

The GE digital camera is inexpensive but effective. Perfect for those of you who need a digital camera, but aren't ready to spend the big bucks yet.

The General Electric digital camera makes beautiful flower photography a reality with features such as a 2.7” LCD display and a 12.2 megapixel sensor.

3X zoom isn't very much compared to other cameras, you can't be too far away from the flowers to get a great shot, but it's sufficient for the price. My first camera had a 3X zoom and I took beautiful closeups with it.

Most importantly, this camera takes crisp, clean photos.

GE T123 Digital Camera

This camera is also great for taking pictures of nature. It includes different shooting modes such as sunset, fireworks, night landscape, panorama, and portrait.

One drawback of the GE digital camera, however, is that it does not have rechargeable batteries, which is something to consider if you're already on a tight budget.

Best Digital Camera Under $100

Canon PowerShot A2400

The Canon PowerShot only costs about $50 more than the GE 123, and it is full of great features.

This camera is 16 megapixels, which will make your flower photos pop with vibrancy and color. And with 5X zoom, you'll be able to take great up close pictures.

The Canon PowerShot has image stabilization, which means even if your hands are shaky, your flower photographs will come out crisp and not blurry.

This is one of the best PowerShot cameras available. Canon supplied this camera with features such as Smart AUTO, which means that you don't have to guess whether the flash is needed; it will focus automatically for you; and allow your photographs to process quickly with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor.





 Included with the Canon PowerShot is a battery and battery charger, USB cable, Canon Photo Software, and a wrist strap.

Samsung WB100 Smart Digital Camera

The best buy for cameras in flower photography is by far the Samsung WB100 Smart Digital Camera. For less than $200 you can get 16.2 megapixels, 26x zoom, and a wide angle lens.

Flower photography will be easy and look professional when you use this affordable camera by Samsung.

The Samsung WB100 Smart Digital Camera has 26X zoom. With this camera, you have detachable lens quality photos with the ease of a point and shoot digital camera.

I love to take pictures and I've been doing it for a long time, but I don't have a clue what aperture, focus range, or ISO means. I just know they make your pictures look great.

Samsung makes it simple by picking the appropriate features to your environment for you.

One of the neatest features about this camera is that it has a rear wouch screen that is three inches big. You can actually take pictures just by touch.

When you buy the Samsung WB 100, you are actually getting two different products for one low price. It's an awesome camera, but it has a dedicated video button that allows you to record in 720p high definition.
