    "I was looking to get a new camera for an upcoming wedding I am working and had a budget of about $1000 to find the best choice for me. I settled on the Nikon D7200 as it offered a really good deal in terms of bang for my buck. The overall picture quality and recording consistency is top notch and I don't regret spending the cash for this for a second. Now I just need people to stop asking me to borrow my awesome camera."

    "When it comes to a budget friendly yet professional style camera, the Canon EOS M5 is the answer. The Wi-Fi enabled tech allows users to instantly upload pictures and the blu tooth allows the user to connect to their phones. This camera is a great step up and is one of the best mid range cameras on the market."

    "This camera is a bit on the pricey side. Most people would want to use it for scuba diving but it only works for snorkeling. If you use it underwater then it will not work again because of water damage. This is disappointing because of the price."

    "This is a decent camera, and it does meet the budget range given, though I can't help but feel like it is too similar to other Canon models that are considerably cheaper. It seems to not differ all that much from the M3 model, I believe, which looks to be closer to two-thirds of the price. It does not seem like that extra hundred dollars buys you a lot extra, so I would definitely do some more research before confirming your purchase here - you might want to save some money, or look at something else to try to get more features for a higher price."

    "The Fujifilm X-T20 creeps just above the 1000 price change but would be well worth the money invested in it. It is a tough digital camera that is sized perfectly for travel. It has fast autofocus and is also capable of making videos for the times that pictures just aren't enough."

    "This is a really nice camera for 200 bucks. You could spend a lot more and get something nicer, but it really isn't necessary. This camera has a 10x optical zoom which is awesome. I love using this camera. I have gotten some great shots with it. I take it everywhere with me. It is really lightweight too so it isn't a hassle to take it along on trips like some pricier cameras."
