M is for Memories

Smart phones are brilliant for capturing life's ups and downs, but nothing beats the look and feel of a real camera, especially at Christmas. When investingin a new model, think about the kind of shots you intend to take – family portraits, bloggable close-ups of your Christmas lunch, or fun home movies of gifts being exchanged. Interchangeable lenses provide endless flexibility, particularly for wide-angled group shots, and many of today's compact M system cameras incorporate motion sensors, which make shooting fleet-footed childreneasier than ever.

Built-in retouch and creative editing functions allow you to refine your shots on the spot, while the inclusion of Wi-Fi means you can 'shoot and share' photos instantly. Youcan even experiment with film, using Lomography's intriguing medium-format pocket camera. It creates large, luscious images with a truly professional feel.
