22446i0132DF0F6957BC14Camera technology keeps improving every year. It wasn’t too long ago when buying a camera meant learning about what types of film to use for different situations – do I use ISO 100 or 400 on a sunny day – worrying about development costs and not knowing how your pictures turned out for days or weeks after you took them. Of course the excitement of the moment had often long passed when you could finally show those masterpieces to your family and friends.

Well we’ve come a long way since then. Nikon cameras feature the most advanced camera technology available. All of their cameras simplify the process of taking great pictures, and showing them off. Watch this video to learn about three of the new Nikon cameras

Some cameras are really well suited for travel, others for social sharing and still others for great family photos and life events. We created this really fun infographic showing the types of situations where you might want to use each type of camera. Hopefully it helps you decide for yourself which camera is right for you.

Best Buy would like to give you a chance to win one of the cameras featured in the video and infographic, the Nikon D3200 (shown at the beginning of this article). That camera takes clear, high resolution images (24.2 MP) and full HD video (1080p). Take a step toward capturing amazing digital images just by entering this contest.


It is easy to enter. Best Buy has posted the infographic shown above on their Twitter account @BBYCanada. Simply retweet that post including the hashtag #Nikon4U for your chance to win. Be sure to follow @BBYCanada since we will contact the winner via a direct message on Twitter.
