Cameras For Summer Adventures


Summer is coming, is it time for a new camera? Let’s see what DealDash has on offer.

DealDash has so many different types of cameras up for auction at any given time, from inexpensive kid’s cameras all the way up to high grade digital cameras good enough to fancy yourself a professional photographer when you use them. DealDash also has cameras meant for active lifestyles, and cameras meant to be enjoyed by the whole family. Here are a few of my favorites that DealDash often has up for bid:

Best for Kids: Fuji Instax 8 – I actually have one of these for myself! The Instax is one of my favorite things to take to parties, over to the relatives house, or to keep handy when we go out in the summer. It’s just like an old school Polaroid in that it spits out instant pictures, except it’s got a fun new body design, multiple levels of flash for different types of light, and comes in fun colors.

Best for Families: Coleman 2V9WP Duo2 Dual Screen – I picked this one as best for families because it’s a very affordable price, it comes in fun colors, it’s waterproof, it has dual screens, and 20 MP resolution. This is a cute but rugged camera you don’t have to be afraid to hand it over to your 6 year old to take a picture.

Best for Active Lifestyles: GoPro Hero – GoPro Hero has become the gold standard in practically indestructible sports cameras. The GoPro Hero camera mounts easily to your body, gear or vehicle, making it easy to record video with up to 1080p resolution during your favorite activities. Dropped from a high distance? No problem! Want to film surfing selfies? No problem! GoPro!

Best for Serious Hobbyists: Nikon D3200 – This Nikon is actually my dream camera! I have never had the nerve to bid on one on DealDash because I haven’t worked up the nerve to be willing to “Go all the way”.  Maybe someday. This is an awesome camera that also shoots videos in 1080p. Perfect for making YouTube videos. You can actually even edit your pictures right within the cameras interface and share them wirelessly. And as an extra awesome bonus, it also comes in red!!!
