Welcome to Engadget’s back to school guide! The end of summer vacation isn’t nearly as much fun as the weeks that come before, but a chance to update your tech tools likely helps to ease the pain. Today, we’ve got our optical viewfinders set firmly on digital cameras — and you can head to the back to school hub to see the rest of the product guides as they’re added throughout the month. Be sure to keep checking back — at the end of the month we’ll be giving away a ton of the gear featured in our guides — and hit up the hub page right here!
Your smartphone can take pictures, you say? Well, sure it can, but try snapping away at a frat party — you’re likely to walk away with a blurry mess. Your Facebook friends and future employers deserve an accurate account of those glory days, and you’ll need a proper snapper to get the job done. College is as good a time as any to learn responsibility, but don’t expect to walk out of the experience with all your gear unscathed. To that end, freshmen should look long and hard at our point-and-shoot picks, which include models that you won’t be afraid to toss around, or drop in the jungle juice. After that come the mirrorless ILCs, which should satisfy the more advanced photogs in the bunch, followed by our digital SLR picks, which, sadly, may be out of reach of all but photography majors and deep-pocketed private school types. Finally, you’ll have yet another opportunity to enter our fantastic giveaway at the bottom of the page, just after the break.
