In order to make the wide range of cameras a bit clear and understandable, we have prepared a 3-step plan for you. Here we discuss the three most common model cameras. If you have any questions, we're here to hel.

1. What kind of camera

Every camera has its advantages, which is why it is important to know what exactly you want to do with the camera. Are you planning to vlog? Than a tilting screen helps to create a good composition. On holiday you will benefit more from a camera with a high zoom factor and portrait photos will appeal more if a camera is able to create a good depth of field. Also consider the way you want to share the photos. Wifi, NFC and Bluetooth are wireless sharing options used with all types of cameras. When it is clear to yourself what exactly you want to photograph and / or film, it is time to delve more into the type of cameras with which this should be done.

Compact camera

Compact cameras are small and light, making them easy to carry. This makes them very suitable for the amateur photographer who finds the quality of smartphone photos unsuitable for his or her ambitions. Compact cameras have a fixed lens with a standard zoom range, but also a smaller sensor than a system or SLR camera. The compact cameras with larger 1-inch sensors are intended for photographers who still do not want to sacrifice too much on quality.

Pros and cons

feecms_x_x_x Relatively light and small formfactor

feecms_x_x_x Sharper and nicer photos than a smartphone

feecms_x_x_x Often equipped with a tilting screen

feecms_x_x_x Compact sensor compromises on quality

Bridge camera

Bridge cameras, also known as point and shoot cameras, are equipped with high-quality lenses, with a slightly larger sensor than the standard compact camera. This makes them very suitable for the photographer who also likes to zoom, without significant loss in quality and aperture. Bridge cameras have a fixed lens with a large zoom range. The sensor is often slightly smaller than that of an SLR camera. The bridge cameras with larger 1-inch sensors are intended for photographers who do not want to sacrifice too much on quality.

Pros and cons

feecms_x_x_x Large aperture for optimal clarity

feecms_x_x_x Lots of zoom with often a fixed aperture

feecms_x_x_x Often equipped with a tilting screen

feecms_x_x_x Lenses not interchangeable

System camera

A system camera is a cross between a compact camera and an SLR camera. The system camera does not have a mirror mechanism, so the housing can be smaller than an SLR, but it is equipped with many adjustment options and interchangeable lenses for different types of photography. The sensor is larger than that of a compact camera, which you often see in the quality. A mirrorless camera also focuses quickly, so you will miss fewer moments.

Pros and cons

feecms_x_x_x Lenses are interchangeable

feecms_x_x_x Larger sensor than compact camera

feecms_x_x_x Relatively good performance in dark environments

feecms_x_x_x Handy and relatively light

feecms_x_x_x Not always equipped with an electronic viewfinder

DSLR Camera

The DSLR camera has a folding mirror. This technique ensures that there is almost no delay between the moment of printing and the moment of capture. A DSLR camera reacts immediately and will not let you miss a moment, especially with today's fast focusing techniques. Thanks to the many setting options, large sensor and zipper of quality lenses, you aim for the highest quality with a DSLR camera. You will see this in particular in the sharpness and contrast of the photo.

Pros and cons

feecms_x_x_x No time delay when taking photos

feecms_x_x_x Very fast autofocusing

feecms_x_x_x Many setting options

feecms_x_x_x Equipped with many lenses and accessories

feecms_x_x_x Relatively large and heavy camera

2. Matching accessories

Camera flashes


An external flash naturally provides more light and more light options. But which one fits your camera? Find the appropriate flash here.



You use a lens to get the light onto the sensor of your camera as best as possible. By means of different focal lengths you get different angles of view and therefore different types of photos. You use telephoto lenses for long distances, macro lenses for close proximity. You can almost always use all-round lenses.



With a tripod, tripod or monopod, you have the opportunity to calmly determine a good composition and you can continue to shoot with a slower shutter speed. By using a camera tripod, you can be sure that the camera does not move during recording and your photos will be razor sharp.
