Every parent needs a quality camera to capture her family's big events and daily doings. A standard digital camera is an affordable option that can deliver sharp photos that can be easily uploaded to your computer. Advanced models, including digital single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs), are more expensive but allow you to take higher-quality photos and print larger images. Casual users might be interested in a point-and-shoot Flip video camera or a waterproof camera for the beach or pool. And you always can personalize many set-ups with additional camera lenses or a tripod.
