What Back Up Camera Should I Buy

Please Help Me Decide What Back Up Camera Should I Buy?

Back up Camera


Since I now own a very good Nikon SLR camera, I was thinking of owning a back up camera. A point "n" shoot. Any recommendations?


That is a huge, general question. A bit like asking "what car should I get?"

I suggest that you think about what you need the second camera for and what you like about the Nikon that you have.

Work out your budget. Make a list of things you are looking for in a 2nd camera:

  • 1
    Zoom range
  • 2
  • 3
    Flash capabilities
  • 4
  • 5
  • 6

Then go to a local store and get a hands-on feel for the cameras that you short list:
