There are many quality cameras on the market today, and it’s really hard to just pick one for sure. These are all perfect as a memory-maker tool.

Feature Camera Picks for 2015

Of these three cameras, one of them is bound to be a perfect match for your needs. They range in prices from 347.99-799.99. All of these cameras are a great choice for fellow bloggers or other folks who are taking professional pictures without investing in high tech cameras.

This camera is the most expensive one of the bunch. It is on sale for $799.99 right now at Best Buy. This camera comes with 18-55 mm VR Lens.

This camera also comes equipped with built in Wi-Fi and GPS features.

Hi, I'm Dale. Some of the things I like to do are box, lift weights, and spend time with my beautiful wife Crystal. I also enjoy watching shows on Netflix or playing video games with my son when I can find some free time.
