People typically fall on one end of that spectrum.

In this article we were quickly help you determine what type of digital camera you should purchase. With all the different types of digital cameras you need to know what type is best for you and the type of photography that you are going to do.
The different types of digital cameras and what they are best used for is determined by your level of skill and the type of photography that you plan on doing. If you are a beginner photographer you probably do not need the most expensive type of camera. The most expensive type of camera is typically a full frame camera, which pretty much means that it is the size of an old 35mm negative. Such cameras are great for professional shoots where you need a ton of detail and when you plan on printing your image very large.
The next type of camera that is expensive but very accessible to most people are APS-C and micro 4/3 cameras. There are professionals who use these types of cameras, there are professional versions of these cameras and their amateur versions of these cameras. The distinction is between the amount of features that it has and typically that means the amount of manual features it has. Professional and serious photographers typically want a camera with a lot of manual control so that they can have control over the exposure. We suggest this type of camera to just about anyone who wants to get the most out of their photography. You can get one that is fully automatic when you don’t have a think at all, you can get one that will allow you to manually set your exposure and it will have a ton of automatic program mode for people who don’t want to think either.
There are also various types of point-and-shoot cameras that come with a very small sensor that can take okay pictures, you won’t get super detailed images and you won’t get great lowlight performance but for people who just want vacation snapshots and snapshots of their family, this might be the proper camera for them.
So if you are in the market for new digital camera first figure out what type of photography you are going to do, how deep you want to get into this hobby and how much money you have to spend.
