Thank you for your email and interest in our courses. The camera best suited for this course is a DSLR or Point-Shoot with manual controls. For example Manual Mode, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Program mode.
Certain point-shoots do not allow for manual control so you are a bit limited. In this case you would benefit more from the theory then practical application.
Hope this helps if you require any additional information please feel free to contact us anytime.
