Are you looking for something light quick and easy?
If you're just looking for something basic and portable to just take a quick photograph, then this section is for you. If you are looking to take a little more creative control of your photography we would recommend you click on our Beginner to Intermediate Options.
There is no rule which says you have to have "this or that" to enjoy photography. You can use your mobile 'phone, spend £50 on a "point and shoot" camera, or spend £10,000 on a "big lens" and a complex camera body, and both options will shoot photographs. The trick is to get what is right for YOU. Below we explore 3 options (mobile/cell 'phones, compacts, and bridge cameras) which will all take great pictures, but fall short of a "fully loaded" DSLR. If you know what you are doing you can take a better picture on a mobile/cell 'phone than someone else could take with a posh DSLR camera. You'll find tips throughout this website to help you do exactly that.
That said if you're at all serious about developing your photography we would recommend that at a minimum you buy a bridge camera. You may also like to explore out advice on beginner to intermediate DSLR's.
