The Best All Around Digital Camera
Executive Summary about Best Camer By Chris Campbell
Why is so difficult for camera companies to come up with one good all around digital camera that’s perfect for all occasions? The three most distinguishable features or dividing factors when it comes to digital cameras are size, ease of use, and image quality. Smaller sized camera designs are very portable, but usually affect ease of use and image quality in negative ways. The smaller a camera is, the smaller the controls are, which makes them harder to use. The most successful small sized cameras I like are the Canon SD1000 Digital Elph, and the Olympus Stylus 790SW.
The ultimate in image quality usually means big bulky SLR cameras with a case load of lenses and controlled lighting for different types of shooting environments. SLR photography also involves micro managing of all the various camera settings such as aperture, ISO settings, white balance, f-stop and so on.
What Is The Best Digital Camera Brand?
If ever there was a controversial question amongst the hordes of digital camera enthusiasts, it has to be “What is the best digital camera brand?”. Because everyone knows that regular (film) cameras are far superior to digital cameras. If digital camera sales were any indication of what the best brand was, then according to Amazon.com Canon would be a clear winner. As I write this, Canon manufactures 18 of the top 25 bestselling cameras on their best seller list. Sharing the top 11 spots with Canon are 2 of the Pure Video manufactured Flip Video cameras. Nikon has 2 cameras in the top 25 including the Nikon D40, and the Nikon D300. A perusal of one top camera review site under their 5 star category, show 39 Canon cameras, 18 Sony cameras, 17 Nikon cameras, 6 Fuji cameras, 5 Olympus cameras, 5 Panasonic cameras, 3 Pentax cameras, and 1 Konica camera. A second camera review site under their top 103 cameras showed 46 Canon cameras, 21 Sony cameras, 20 Nikon cameras, 5 Pentax cameras, 3 Fuji cameras, 2 Samsung cameras, 2 Panasonic cameras, 2 Kodak cameras, 1 Konica camera, and 1 Casio camera. Everyone else had less than 10 top rated cameras.
The Best Digital Camera For The Money
It doesn’t matter, whether it’s digital cameras, automobiles, homes, or jet airplanes. If I’m going to spend $100 for a camera, then I better get $100 worth of features and quality from that camera. If I spend $1000 on a camera, then I better get $1000 worth back as well. Acclaimed science fiction author Theodore Sturgeon was famous for a couple of adages known as Sturgeons Laws. If the camera your looking at is not on at least one top ten list, then drop it from your search. If it doesn’t have at least a four star review from someone, then drop if off your list. Spend a day, and blitz your favorite camera stores. Of course if the above seems like to much work for you slackers out there, here’s my short list of great cameras that are all money well spent. In the under $150 category, the Canon PowerShot A570IS. The only waterproof, shockproof, dust proof, and freeze proof camera I know.
