Consumer products are products sold by companies which often enables film makers to create a product. This involves technology such as cameras, editing software, luxury goods, laptops/computers/tablets etc … Using technology at home can be useful for individuals which are interested or wanting to pursue a career in media. This is due to individuals being able to learn and train themselves how to use technology such as cameras and editing software, where many of these consumer products are used in everyday life. Some examples of low cost consumer products could in fact be editing software, such as Adobe Photo Shop or Adobe Premiere Pro. For example, Photoshop requires a 30 day free trial so that the consumer is not purchasing a product which may not be for them. If the consumer enjoys Photoshop, then to purchase this software is only £27 for a year. This can completely make a difference in individuals work, such as careers in photography. This is an incredible price in comparison to other consumer products which would massively cost more, such as high quality cameras. For example the Canon EOS 700D Digital SLR + 18-55mm IS STM Lens costs on an average of £500 - £600, however there are many other Canon cameras which costs much more, or some that may be cheaper and cost around £200 such as the Canon Powershot SX510 HS Digital Compact Camera.
