Should My Camera Selection Based on the Shooting Needs or Video Record Format?

Summary: So you want to buy a new camera – but why? These guides let you make your selection based on the kind of photography you want to do. Perhaps you want to document your growing family, or you need a camera to take snorkeling on an upcoming vacation? We’ve got you covered.

Christmas is upon us again (at least for those in the Northern Hemisphere), and many people will be taking advantage of the nice Christmas Eve by heading to the visit friends or hold a Christmas Party. While a ‘regular’ camera can take most of the photos on your party, it won’t survive a dip in the party or a tumble out of your backpack.

That’s why rugged compact digital cameras continue to be one of the very few areas of the market that’s still going strong. 

If they’re young enough, your kids have always known a world in which smartphones are the most popular devices for taking photos. That’s too bad. To ensure that the next wave of young photographers understand the performance and ergonomic advantages of using a real camera, you’ll need to get one into their hands as soon as possible.

If you want to buy a camera specifically for your child – or a camera that your entire family can share without worrying too much – durability and ease of use are just as important, if not more, as image quality and features.

And, of course, much of that depends on the age and maturity level of your child. We wouldn’t trust any toddler or the vast majority of 10-year-old boys with an advanced point-and-shoot, but for a teenager or pre-teen that’s wise beyond their years and genuinely interested in photography, a compact with a lot of zoom and manual controls to grow into might be a great fit.

No matter what kind of camera you have chosen, you always have the require of playing or editing video in sometimes. Not all the video can be imported into the NLEs for editing since the video format or recording codec are not compatible for all the NLEs. In fact, different NLE has different original format with itself, such as Avid DNxHD for Avid MC, Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro X/7/6MPEG-2 or WMV(VC-1) for Adobe Premier Pro and Sony Vegas and more to meet different of needs.
