They say a picture tells a thousand words, and when it comes to your memories, you want those words to be the right ones. The right camera can help you capture your story with beautiful, clear images of important moments like your child’s first Christmas, your smile when you reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro or the exact second she said yes.
Most photographers agree that the best camera is the one that you have on you when you see the perfect image. Walmart Canada has a wide range of cameras so you’re sure to find one that you'll love to carry and that will record all your favourite memories.
Photographers come in all different skill levels, and the amount of time you’re willing to put into learning these skills can also differ. If you want great photos but don’t have a lot of time or technical know-how, a point-and-shoot camera is the perfect option. These cameras automatically adjust for light conditions and also have automatic focus so all you have to do is click the shutter. Many newer models have zoom options so you can still get great close-up shots without worrying about changing lenses.
For photographers who want more control, a Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera is the preferred option. These cameras give photographers a more accurate image of what will be captured by showing the image on the viewfinder. DSLRs also allow you to adjust everything including aperture and exposure settings, although most also have automatic settings. The majority of DSLR cameras let you swap lenses so you can get differing levels of zoom or interesting effects.
Many people want more than just an image, and Walmart Canada has plenty of options for people who want to capture live action. Sports and action cameras are great for thrill seekers who want friends and family to experience flying down the ski slopes or jumping from a plane. These cameras can be mounted to your chest, helmet or arm, as well as to equipment like a bike or car, to ensure the scene is captured from the best vantage point.
For people just looking to keep a record of the speeches at their child’s graduation, Walmart.ca has a range of camcorders that are easy to use and allow you to watch that dance recital, hockey game or ‘I do’ as often as you want.
In the past, aerial photography has been outside of the reach of most people, but a drone camera allows anyone to capture images from the sky. Photographers love these easy-to-fly cameras that can capture large groups of people from above or take sweeping videos of Canada’s beautiful countryside.
It’s important to have the right accessories to go with your camera and Walmart.ca has everything in one spot. The right camera bag makes your camera easy to carry so you’ll always have it with you and also helps you protect your equipment. Tripods and gimbals stabilize your camera and can allow you to capture a photo in low light without worrying about your hands shaking and blurring the image. You can also set up your camera with a remote control so you can be in the photo. Once you start taking photos it can be hard to stop, so think about a spare memory card to make sure you can keep every memory.
The last step in your photographic journey is seeing your results. Walmart Canada has a range of photo printers that print high-quality images. A photo frame adds a finishing touch, allowing you to proudly display your favourite image or give a photo of the kids to their grandmother for Mother’s Day.
People who can’t wait to see their results may like an Instant Film Camera. These little machines produce a printed image immediately, so you can give one away to friends or ask them to write a message on it before you put it in your wallet.
No matter which of Walmart Canada's cameras capture your interest, they're all sure to capture your story, allowing you to relive your most precious memories well into the future.
