With the holiday shopping season in full effect, shoppers, Santa's elves and gift givers are scouring the shelves for for the must have cameras and camcorders to put under the tree. The Best Buy Holiday Gift Center is the one stop shopping resources for the hottest, must have cameras and camcorders that everyone will be raving about on Christmas morning.
Our family is looking into purchasing new cameras and camcorders. In 2015, the family is going on a once in a lifetime trip to South Africa. For two weeks, we will be touring game reserves, going on safari, diving with sharks and seeing exotic wonders that usually are experienced via books and television. While I know that these memories will be etched in my mind's eye, I want to capture every moment with cameras and camcorders to bring back to family and friends.
This holiday season, I'm looking at the Best Buy Holiday Gift Center for some guidance on which cameras and camcorders will be perfect for our family trip. A couple key features that I want in these devices are Wi-Fi built in to the device, durability, and ease of use. Here are a few items that we are considering.
