4 Picture-Perfect Cameras For Content Creation From Henry’s (Win!)

April 28, 2024

When it comes to capturing social content (and, yes, private life moments, too), everyone agrees: a great camera is key. Sure, your phone can do the light lifting but, for truly outstanding in-and-out-takes, we (and you) want equipment that’s specially made for the job. That’s where Henry’s Camera comes in, offering cameras of all makes and models, at various price points, for every level of photographer and every kind of creator’s needs. Below, four of Anthony Jackson, training specialist at Henry’s, top recommendations, and a big chance to win:

Canon EOS R50

“This would be my top pick if I was looking for a new camera that’s small, lightweight, affordable and solid for taking pictures,” Anthony says. “It does do video and could be a solid pick for someone who is looking to get their first camera, but wants something very small that gives them the ability to change lenses.”

Any Canon Rebel Camera

“Take your pick of any Rebel camera from Canon,” recommends Anthony. “We still sell a tonne of rebels and the only reason why Canon hasn’t discontinued the Rebel line is because people still buy and love them. They are super-affordable and the menu assist feature is really nice for new photographers.”

Nikon Z8

“This was an awesome release and Nikon’s ‘best-selling camera EVER,’ according to the Nikon reps,” he says. “It’s essentially a baby Z9 and significantly cheaper in price. It’s an absolute monster for video and photography. Shoots 8K and 4K in super slow motion, that is 120P, has IBIS and is solid for low-light work. You get 20 frames per second burst speed, so this is a do-it-all type of camera. Sports, action, wildlife, wedding, filmmaking or landscape

Nikon Z30

“This little guy has surprisingly good video quality, eye and face detection, a flip screen and is the go-to for vloggers/content creators if you are wanting a Nikon camera,” says Anthony. “I have seen a few Youtubers pick this up and be pleasantly surprised.”

Studio 185

Expert insights and advice, like Anthony’s, isn’t the only thing that makes Henry’s Canada’s Greatest Camera Store. Recently, Henry’s launched Studio 185 at 185 Church Street in Toronto. This beautiful, custom-designed 600-square-foot studio is fully equipped to ignite and capture the content of Canada’s booming content creator sector. Whether it’s a video space, podcast studio or gamer station, Studio 185 is fully stocked with FREE (you read that right!) gear, lighting, cameras, equipment and recording devices as well as an onsite pro expert to help advise in capturing, shooting and bringing the creative vision to life.

“The creative industry has always been a space that lacks the funding and opportunity. We see it in schools, our music and arts programs are always the first ones cut,” says Gillian Stein, CEO of Henry’s. “We like to think big picture: how do we help foster the creative minds and vision of Canadians genuinely? How do we help turn Canadians’ creative passions into profits in a genuine way? We know how much creatives contribute to Canada, and Studio 185 is that creative space that will advocate and support them.”

Now that’s what we call picture perfect! —Vita Daily

    My grandfather bought a DSL camera from Henry’s 20 years ago and I was hoping to get to use it someday and start doing photography. I like nature and animals, he passed away and I never even got to take a single picture with the camera. Hope to win to get back into trying again, thank you 🙂
