Capture The Beauty Of The Outdoors With These Cameras

The end of winter will provide a much needed antidote for those suffering from a severe case of cabin fever. Warm weather's arrival will mean plenty of time outside and plenty of photo ops. Spring is one of the best times of the year to capture the beauty of the outdoors. Vegetation is changing from brown to green, flowers are blooming and critters are coming out of their dens. With that said, here are three cameras that stand out for those looking to capture nature's beauty this spring.

Avid photographers and those who consider it a hobby should look into a digital single-lens reflex camera or DSLR. These cameras usually have a higher price point, but they also provide the best picture quality. Brands like Canon, Nikon and Sony are always a safe bet. One quality option is Canon's EOS Rebel SL1. The SL1 is petite for a DSLR, however, it still packs quite a punch. It boasts an 18.0 megapixel sensor for high-detailed images. It also shoots full high definition video to capture those moments when a single image just won't do. These cameras will allow photographers to set the aperture, ISO and shutter speed to produce a top-notch picture.

If your spring and summer also coincides with fun on the water, a rugged waterproof option might be best. Sony produces a line of waterproof point-and-shoot cameras that can withstand quite a soaking. The Cyber-Shot DSC-TX10 takes 16.2 megapixel pictures while being tough enough to handle whatever the season can dish out. Like the aforementioned DSLR, this product also shoots full HD video. For those looking for some style to their camera, the Cyber-Shot has a sleek design and comes in an array of color options.

Those just looking for something basic yet with more control than a cell phone camera should look into point-and-shoot options. The Nikon Coolpix L830 is a stylish, powerful camera that resembles its DSLR cousins. The biggest difference is the camera's inability to switch out lenses. The L830 sports a 16.0 megapixel sensor and again can shoot HD video. A camera like this will allow users to take professional looking photographs without having to worry about messing with the camera's shutter speed and aperture.

These are merely three products to consider. There is a plethora of options when it comes to digital cameras, so it is always best to conduct research to ensure the product will fit your need. No matter the outdoor adventure, there is bound to be a camera to fit any spring and summer lifestyle!
