Can you recommend a camera for me? 2015-05-09T10:51:32+00:00

As everyone’s abilities and needs are different, we can give you advice on what specifications to look for, but we cannot make any specific recommendations. There are so many new cameras coming out all the time, we wouldn’t be able to keep up with them. Once you know what to look for, your best bet is to go to your local camera shop and ask them for recommendations. There should be at least one member of staff there who is up to date with what’s available. You could also post this question on our Forum where you can ask other disabled photographers for their recommendations.
