Buying a digital camera can be a tricky business. With so many different brands and models on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start. There’s a wealth of information available on the internet, from reviews of models to articles explaining how to find the best digital camera for you. If you’re serious about your next digital camera, it pays to put in the ‘hard yards’ and choose the right one.
However, the breadth of technical information on the internet can be daunting, and many of us simply don’t have the time to figure out what specifications mean! That’s where Kirk’s Camera Supply’s expert sales team comes in. With specialist advice available in-store, choosing your next digital camera is easy as 1-2-3. Taking into account your needs and budget, one of our sales representatives will help you decide from our vast range of digital SLRs and compact digital cameras.
Not only are our staff more than happy to help you find your perfect camera, they can assist you with finding useful camera accessories and ways to create photo prints. Face-to-face advice is becoming harder to find with the advent of the online shop and cameras in department stores. The personal touch makes all the difference.
Kirk’s Camera Supply doesn’t just deal in digital still cameras – we also stock a range of video cameras and accessories. Whatever your skill level, we carry a video camera that will suit your needs and budget. From families wishing to record those special moments, to film students producing high-quality homework, to professional moviemakers, we’ve got you covered.
Technology has progressed considerably since the days of the Super-8 camera, or even the humble Handycam. Full High-Definition (HD) video is now a reality, and is even included on several still cameras. Film and tape are no longer the media of choice, as hard disks, DVDs and flash memory provide greater storage and generally higher quality. Videos are now transferred digitally to computers where they can be edited in a non-linear fashion and kept safely on disk. The speed of the FireWire/IEEE 1394 interface means that video transfer is faster than ever.
Modern digital video cameras are exceptionally easy to use – it’s generally a case of ‘point and shoot’, and your memories are instantly recorded. A tripod is a very useful addition, especially with the advent of ‘video blogs’ where your thoughts are recorded, for example, during your travels, and posted online. Whatever project you have in mind, a digital video camera from us will suit it perfectly.
We carry an extensive range of digital video cameras and camcorders, as well as accessories to enhance your video experience. Caring for your camera, whether video or still, is important to ensure good results on every use. Come into Kirk’s Camera Supply, and find the video camera or accessories you’ve been looking for. Our expert staff are willing to assist you with your purchase.
A decent tripod is a firm base for successful photography (pardon the pun). Many consumer photographers are used to taking photos ‘on the fly’, and this has lead to the advent of digital image stabilization technology to remove motion blur. However, many non-professional photographers can still benefit from having a tripod on hand.
For a large number of ‘incidental’ photographers, a tripod is an essential piece of equipment. It allows precise control of the angle of a shot, provides a stable platform to produce crisp images and a stand for timer photography. Tripods can range from the basic, $10-$20 variety for basic shots, to the advanced, highly configurable structures used for professional work. Tripods are surprisingly inexpensive, and a basic model will suit the needs of most entry-level photographers. There’s even the unusual ‘GorillaPod’, which secures your camera to virtually any surface imaginable via bendy legs.
Tripods can be easily stored along with your other camera accessories via means of a storage bag. Nearly all tripods fold up into a portable, lightweight package, so they can be carried easily on trips.
Where a tripod cannot be used due to space concerns, another viable option is the monopod. These are extensible rods that you can rest the body of your camera on, providing a more stable image. As your hands do not bear the weight of the camera, there is less shake to upset it. Kirk’s Camera Supply stocks a range of monopods that you can use to improve your photography in tight spaces.
Visit our store in Ringwood and browse our range of tripods for yourself, or flick through our catalog online. A tripod is an excellent investment for any photographer – drop into Kirk’s Camera Supply and find one that’s right for you.
When purchasing a new digital camera, one is confronted with a huge range of choice. There are many different models, brands and types to choose from, so the task can seem quite daunting. The sales consultants at Kirk’s Camera Supply recognise this, and will help you choose the camera that is best for you. The two most popular forms of digital camera are the simpler compact variety and the more sophisticated SLR-style type. It’d important to compare the two before deciding on what you will finally purchase.
The compact camera is perhaps the most popular kind. These are the successors of the film-based consumer camera, but allow far more in terms of relative features. Some compact cameras produce nearly professional quality pictures, while still remaining small and easy to use. The chief benefit of the compact camera is its size – it’s easy to keep in a handbag or pocket, and can be taken out for impromptu shoots like family events. However, the lens of the compact camera cannot be removed. This is rarely a concern for your average consumer photographer, but it can limit the quality and variety of your pictures.
At the other end of the spectrum is the Digital SLR. These are similar to the Single-Lens Reflex film cameras of years-gone-by, in that they have interchangeable lenses and a large body. They produce very high quality shots, and the parameters of the camera can be customised to a much greater degree than with compacts. Although generally more expensive than their compact equivalents, many at the lower end of the range are specifically aimed at consumers who want a little more quality and choice. These are quite affordable and make perfect cameras for the hobbyist.
So, whether a compact or an SLR is up your alley, Kirk’s Camera Supply has got you covered. We can help you choose the camera that’s right for you. Our trained staff are more than willing to provide assistance in choosing from our affordable range of compact and SLR cameras. Visit our Ringwood store today for a tour!
The world of photography has grown immensely since its inception. It’s now common practice for every household to have at least one camera to record family memories. Their presence in our modern world is ubiquitous, with most modern mobile phones incorporating one in their handset. Still, despite the universal nature of the camera, it still provides a fun, engaging hobby in the form of photography. Photography can extend from simple recording of events to a full-blown professional art form. To get the most out of the field, of course, one needs to have quality tools and a good support base. Kirk’s Camera Supply can provide you with both of these.
We stock a wide range of digital still and video cameras, as well as accessories to enhance your photography experience. With our extensive online selection, you’re sure to find the right tool for the job. For example, if you simply want to record fun times with friends or family, a handheld digital still camera might be your best bet, or a DV camcorder. Many digital still cameras nowadays have video recording features, allowing you to produce video comparable to that from a camcorder. The possibilities are endless.
The creative aspect of photography is always an alluring aspect for artists young and old. Computer image manipulation programs, combined with the rise of digital photography, have meant that professionals and beginners alike can create photography masterpieces with ease. Creative photography could be your window into artistic fulfillment. More importantly, it’s fun!
Here at Kirk’s Camera Supply, we service customers from all walks of photography. Our staff are ready to consult and help you find a camera that is suited to your purposes.

As technology is always moving at an incomparable rate, the fine line between the professional photographer and the dilettante is growing thinner all the time. Cameras with excellent capabilities and functions, allowing the user to take high-quality shots, are getting cheaper all the time. This has been particularly noticeable with the advent of the Digital SLR (DSLR). These, with their often interchangeable lenses, offer a kind of image quality previously only obtained by professional photographers. DSLRs have gotten less expensive as time has gone on, now catering to the burgeoning ‘prosumer’ demographic of photographers. Often, these are amateurs whose desire for better image quality can now be gratified with the low-cost DSLR. Kirk’s Camera Supply cater for all photographer skills levels, stocking both high- and mid-range DSLRs at affordable prices.
Kirk’s Camera Supply prides itself on providing photography solutions for all kinds of photographer, from the home user, to the amateur, to the professional.
