Whilst the very latest phones may offer cameras of a better quality than previous models, when it comes to real cameras and the best SLRs, modern technology is usually only going to offer sleeker designs. Furthermore, for some, older cameras have a great deal more character and far more warmth than their mass-produced younger, digital relatives, and therefore updating one’s camera may not offer them better results or even a better user experience.
However, what newer technology will offer is more space to store photos and a battery that lasts a great deal longer, yet simply by choosing additional extras instead of whole new cameras, you may be able to get these benefits for far less, and keep the camera you love.
Unlike phone cameras, SLRs can become like friends and knowing the quirks and intricacies of a certain camera can be important when trying to get the perfect shot. Furthermore, since battery life and storage space are the two most longed for changes that photographers would like to make to their cameras, it will make far more sense to simply source larger memory cards for digital cameras and better quality camera batteries for both digital and analogue versions.
Digital camera batteries are far more advanced today than they were even just a few years ago, and whilst some are now much smaller, others will simply last for many more hours than previous models. As such, with just the right batteries, you could increase the potential of your camera infinitely and get far more shots exactly when you want them, without paying much at all for the privilege.
