Recommend a good camera between $300 to $400
  • So a good friend of mine just had his first baby. He asked me to help him find a good camera in the $300 to $350 price range so he can capture those baby pictures and video. I have being looking. If you know something good and reliable, let me know. I am sure something with an OK zoom range too will be a plus. His has no experience working with cameras so this will be his first camera too beside smart phone.

  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ series.

  • Used Sony RX100 (first model).

  • EOS-M with the 18-55.

  • Used Sony NEX-6 on Amazon for $400.

  • For 2D - Panasonic LX7 (can be got on ebay in your range).

    For 3D - Fujifilm w3 3d (around $200 or slightly more) or JVC Everio GS-TD1 (around $500-550)

    I am all for 3D for baby pictures. As they are made to remember and return to this days.

  • Great!! thanks guys. All great options, when he first asked the only thing that first came in mind was the panasonic LX7. Sony RX100 and Canon EOS-M are all great options. The Fujifilm W3 is quit interesting. I like the idea that you can print the 3D picture right out of the camera.
