Photography Is A Great Activity, But It Needs The Right Camera (lifestylealive)

Some days our memory isn’t what it was when we were in school. In those days, we could memorize masses of information in order to spit it back out on an exam. Nowadays, we’re doing good if we remember our address for the Uber driver.

When we grew up and had our families, we wanted pictures of every little change in the babies. We wanted to catalog their growth, their play, their accomplishments. Sometimes we actually did. It was a good day when we had the money for the film but most of all, when we had the time off from work.

The opportunities to see the children and the grandkids are few, but precious to us. Technology wasn’t the shock to us older folks that people think it was; we mastered social media, smartphones, and streaming services on our TVs and tablets. We love talking to the kids and grandchildren on FaceTime, Skype, and video chat.

However, we need more permanent memories. To get them, we need the best camera available . This article will focus on some of the best quality cameras that are easy to use.
