Limitless possibilities with the right camera
The world is beautiful, dreamlike motifs surround us, anywhere and at all times. These must be captured for eternity. Since every photographic situation and especially the preferences of individual photographers are different, we offer a variety of cameras. From smartphones to compact digital cameras and system cameras to professional devices such as SLR and medium format cameras. But analog cameras are also experiencing a revival. Instant cameras in particular are setting a new trend again. In addition to cameras for photos, you will also find camcorders, video cameras and action cams at Foto Koch.
When choosing the right digital camera, the factors quality, flexibility, speed, sensor, resolution, light sensitivity, size, weight as well as existing equipment such as lenses and flash units play a central role. These factors should be compared with the intended uses when buying a camera. If you travel often or always have a camera with you on the road, compact and lightweight solutions are recommended. If you always want to achieve the maximum image quality and are not dependent on great mobility, the use of professional equipment is recommended. Your photographic requirements also play an important role. Professional photographers have higher demands for great resolution, speed and noise behavior (especially at high ISO values) than hobby photographers.
The sensor size has a decisive influence on the image quality. The larger the sensor, the better the dynamic range and image noise. Furthermore, large sensors have a shallower depth of field, which leaves more options open in terms of creativity and space.

Questions about photography cameras
Below we want to answer some questions around cameras and photography.
When are cameras cheap to buy?
Cameras are usually a costly purchase, of course we want to offer you the best prices, so always keep an eye on our promotions and the Deal Area and of course our in-house exhibition. If it doesn't necessarily have to be a new camera, then take a look at our opportunities / second hand.
What accessories do I need for my camera?
This can't be answered in general because you know your areas of use better than we do without further context. But one thing is clear: Usually cameras have to be transported, so it makes sense to have a suitable bag / backpack to protect the back and the equipment inside. Besides a comfortable and storage space offering backpack, a tripod is also not a wrong decision. A tripod offers many possibilities for different types of photography: landscape, architecture, macro but it also can be used in studio photography. A small cleaning kit is very useful because dirt accumulates everywhere and is most noticeable on the sensor.
Which cameras are suitable for beginners?
Until a few years ago you would've been told to buy a cheap APS-C camera, now the prices are similar and a full frame camera can now be used just as well by a beginner. This has the advantage that the lenses do not necessarily have to be bought new if you already own a full-frame camera. There are special APSC lenses that cannot be used on full frame cameras. We advise you to buy a mirrorless camera, because it offers many technical advantages like an autofocus for faces, eyes, animals and much more.
Which lenses do I need at the start?
If you are looking for what you would like to photograph, you should consider buying 2-3 lenses first. For example, a zoom lens and a fixed focal length. By doing so, you challenge yourself: with the zoom, you experience the flexibility that comes with it, but accept the loss of light gathering power. The fixed focal length forces you to deal with perspective, cropping, and much more. So you'll see for yourself what kind of lens suits you best. Of course, it won't help you find your subject yet, but you'll gain experience and technical understanding.
