One of the most important assets for any photographer is their camera. This is their main tool of trade. It goes without saying therefore that a photographer ought to be able to choose the best camera for their needs. Granted, the needs of one photographer will vary from the needs of the next photographer but there are certain things that will overlap. Without further ado, some of the things to look at when choosing the best photography camera for use with Lightroom Presets.

Ease of carrying and size

A lot of photographers do not keep this in mind but remember, your camera will be hanging from a strap on your neck 90% of the time you are out with it. This means that you have to get a camera that is light enough to ensure that it is easy to carry. The weight of a camera will also determine how easy it is for you to handle it. A very heavy, imbalanced camera could slip and fall. It could also be pretty hard to keep steady when taking photographs.

Shooting formats

If you are a professional photographer, there will come a time when you need to edit your photographs or do some post production work on them using Adobe Lightroom and Lightroom Presets. Now, there are two main photograph formats that you can do this on, JPEGs and RAW images. RAW images are a lot easier to edit and work with and are usually of a higher quality than JPEGs. The camera that you choose ought to be able to shoot all of these formats so that you make the choice of which format you would like to use on your own and not be forced by the limitations of the camera to shooting one format or another.

Image quality

Your photography will be judged ultimately by the quality of the photographs that you take. While the quality of the photographs you take will be largely determined by your skills, the camera that you have will also play a huge role in determining the quality of the photographs that you take. Therefore, it goes without saying that you have to choose a camera that lets you shoot in the highest quality possible.

Shutter speed

Over the course of your photography career, you will shoot lots of different types of photographs. Some of them will be fast moving, some of them will be slow. The shutter speed of the camera that you get will determine if you are able to shoot in all of these conditions. The hd action cam you choose should have a wide range of shutter speeds so you are able to choose the optimum exposure you need for the conditions you are shooting in.
