WIN a $1000 Costco Gift Card
A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Right.
And in this day and age we are the kings and queens and all in betweens of photos...
...We love pictures in modern times, we take them multiple times a day everyday of the year.
We, as a society, have looked at cameras and photos as a very special and sentimental thing for around 140 years, which a pretty long time!
It is pretty amazing how Costco cameras have evolved over time, we can use our phone that is equipped with a camera, we can use a GoPro to take pictures and videos of our absolutely kooky adventures, heck we even have digital cameras that can see clearer than our own eyes at times.
All of this is why we wanted to compile a list of cameras for each and everyone of you to enjoy no matter the occasion, after this I highly recommend using a drone over the beach or lake, it is pretty cool to say the least.

What does DSLR stand for?
DSLR stands for Digital Single Lens reflex. But, what exactly does a SLR do? SLR cameras have a moveable mirror behind the lens which reflects the image through a five-sided prism onto a glass screen. What this means it the person taking the photo will see exactly what image will be exposed on the recording medium.
What are the advantages/disadvantages of a DSLR camera over the advantages/disadvantages of a Viewfinder?
The advantage of a DSLR is quite obviously it's accuracy, while a Viewfinder doesn't necessarily capture what is recorded on the recording medium, making photos a bit harder to take accurately. Some disadvantages of a DSLR camera; bulkier and heavier than most viewfinders, much noisier than other cameras due to the physical mechanism (this is a problem to some, not all) and these cameras are relatively harder to operate causing for easier breakdowns and more repairs.
The first video camera was released in 1981 on August 25th, this camera was called the Sony Mavica (Magnetic Video Camera). This camera recorded video onto two floppy disks and played them back on a television or video monitor. This camera was the pioneer for video cameras and many digital cameras today, though it was an analog camera it will still always be considered a big step in smaller cameras!
