Canon and Nikon both have amazing
options for the type of camera a historian
needs, but it all comes down to whichever
brand you prefer. There are other, just as
good brands. Canon has the Rebel line
and Nikon has the D3400 and the D5600.
Both offer a lot of the same features.
Ordering these cameras from their
manufacturer is very pricey, and it is
always a good idea to check stores like
Amazon or Best Buy for cheaper deals. If
ordering from Amazon, the Canon EOS
Rebel t6 is around $450, and the Nikon
D3400 is closer to $500.
Point and Shoot
Just like with DSLRs, the brand of
camera matters to the buyer and that
factors into whichever one you choose to
buy. That being said, Canon and Sony
both have cheaper and more expensive
point and shoot options that are pretty
great to choose from. Buying from
Amazon, the Sony DSCW800 is only
$88, which is a very big difference
compared to the expensive DSLRs. The
Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 on
Amazon is closer to $120.
