Top 10 Best Selling Cameras of 2016

by Bessie Young Photography

Cameras, Cameras, Cameras.... There are so many different choices these days. You aren't sure what camera to get? That is ok. There are so many different options out there and it all depends on your style, what you need the camera for, and your budget. I have put together a list of the Top 10 Best Selling Cameras of 2016. No, this isn't an extensive list. Just the top 10 of 2016.


  1. Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera
  2. Nikon D3300 1532 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Auto Focus-S DX NIKKOR
  3. Sony DSCW800/B 20.1 MP Digital Camera
  4. Kodak PIXPRO Friendly Zoom FZ43 16 MP
  5. Nikon COOLPIX B500 Digital Camera
  6. Nikon D3400 DSLR Camera
  7. Canon EOS Rebel T5 Digital SLR Camera
  8. Canon Powershot ELPH 160
  9. Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  10. Canon PowerShot SX720 HS

If you are in the market to buy a camera there are a few things that you need to consider. Before you make the final decision, ask yourself a few questions:

  1. Why do you want one?
    • This will help you decide on which to get. If you want one for documenting your life, or taking pictures of your adventures, you may not need to get one of the big expensive full frame cameras. A point and shoot might suit your needs better.
  2. What is your budget?
  3. Will you upgrade in the future?
    • Ok, so I am a true believer of the old saying 'buy once, cry once'. I learned the hard way on this one. Believe me, I have been through some lessons learned when it came to camera gear. If you know that you are eventually going to get that big expensive one, you may want to consider getting it now. Are you going to upgrade to the 'nicer' lens or the 'better' camera? Just stop and consider getting it now rather than buying the lesser quality today and then 2 years from now buying the better one. If you go this route, you may spend more money that you ever needed to. Just food for thought.
  4. What are you planning on photographing?
    • This will really help you in your decision process, especially when it comes to various lens options.
  5. What are your preferences?
    • Ok so this may sound odd, but what I mean here is do you like big cameras... small cameras.... having the shutter button on the right or the left... do you want a hand grip... Think of these things. Each camera is different. Sony cameras are light, Canon cameras are bigger and more substantial, Nikons have the buttons on the opposite side...
  6. Ask yourself if the camera has the features you need.
    • Again, this is extremely important.
      • Are you using this camera for video?
      • How big do you plan on printing?
      • Do you want it to have Wifi?
      • What do you want the tool for? Answer this and you will be able to answer if it has the right features for you :)

I hope you all enjoyed this post.

Wishing you nothing but fun adventures, pretty pictures, and a beautiful day!
