Photography is not just a subject, it is an art which has no boundaries. The camera is a device with which you capture the beauty of nature which includes all what we see. Photography lies in us, not the camera. Photographs capture moments and it is the photographer who gives worth to the image.

Get a camera. The first step in beginning photography is to choose the camera as it is the most vital tool in photography, after the photographer himself. Digital "point and shoot" cameras are the best for beginning photography because they have simpler controls than an SLR. Their maintenance and cost is cheaper than an SLR as well. Simple digital cameras also allow the photographer to unleash the creativity in him or her. But cameras differ in more ways and keeping their specifications in mind is important. The common difference between models are the sensors: CCD(Charged Coupled Device] and CMOS[Complementry Metal Oxide Semi- conductor]. While the CCD is cheaper and easier to make and repair, it is slower and consumes more electricity. Also, it has limitations to ISO. On the other hand, CMOS is more expensive and complicated but consumes lesser energy and is faster and more compatible for ISO. Another factor, the type of camera is in the models. While point and shoot come in various sizes and functions, the ratio of quality and functions is maintained by the price. They have fixed lenses and limitations including inability to click through glass, loss of depth, telefocation, advanced functions etc. A higher level comes with more depth,durability and functions. Then come the bDSLR, which are a level below SLR and a bit cheaper, yet they are designed and capable to let a professional photographer to use it as a excellent backup. SLR are at the top and provide everything except toughness, which is a bargain good enough.
