The only problem: we are usually too busy taking photographs to give a complete and considered answer to these type of questions… So?
Luckily we love photography and have found a few days to compile a no BS review of the very best, small but truly brilliant digital cameras out there. This fairly small black hunk of slippery alloy and plastic (269g) has enormous quality and stunning potential in the right hands. Now for that limitation, the only thing that is really wrong with this camera (apart from the fact you need three others and each with a different focal length lens attached), is the price! Verdict The Sony RX1 is a great camera but just too expensive for almost everyone, I will bet Donald Trump owned one for a while, then he got rid of it as too much trouble and now he just uses pricey disposables. These two models LX7 and D-lux6 are in fact the exact same camera, with different software and badges. Think about it, historically the best lens maker on the planet and a company with more patents in electronic image capture that any other, this Camera has designer baby DNA. Another great thing about this lens is it can focus at very small distances, this can lead to some really Attenborough like close up nature shots with very out of focus backgrounds.
So… In short The Panaica is a real gem, but as a broadcast video camera and (hopefully soon) an tiny 18mm superwide, is a little diamond.
This fuji is one of the best Cameras ever made for shooting people in everyday situations, especially when they are running around with complete unpredictability, i.e. Maybe the lack of a zoom makes it too restrictive for many as a holiday camera, most people would like to take it easy on holiday, crossing the road backwards to take a snap of the hotel might be a risk too far for most. The Fuji X100s would also be my first choice of camera if I were somehow shooting a sweet, laughing and nude Marilyn Monroe, in a big white bed with soft white linen, by a big sunny window. Okay get ready for this; P7800 is the best compact camera in the world, is without a doubt the finest handling and most fully featured compact camera in existence today.
The Nikon P7800 is the best compact camera out there right now, it only costs ?350 and we have to recommend you buy one: So why isn’t it the No1 compact camera in the world?
We feel there is a standout winner in the compact camera arena at the moment: The Canon s120. The Canon s120 is a stunning compact camera, and just the perfect, functions, size, handling and shape. Maybe you would like to know a lot lot more about these and some of the others before buying?
Still, your entitled to your own opinions, but I know which I’d rather have in my pocket when a once in a lifetime shot presents itself.
Firstly the camera makes a serious mess out of bright highlights, it blows out highlights that even an old Lumix LX5 could handle with ease.
I very much agree with this reviewer, I did keep my RX100 but it is deeply flawed, in very many common circumstances the shots are full of white areas where the highlights burned in. I also agree with the different negative points mentioned by Shooter One above, although I think the RX100 is definitively not a bad camera and might have deserved to be in this TOP5, not as winner though.
Result: after taking more than 2000 shots with it in a wide range of situations, I can say that the RX100 is a decent camera, but it is actually very disappointing after reading all the positive reviews and considering its retail price. Firstly, it is extremely sensitive to flares and thus night shooting with strong artificial lighting is a nightmare.
A said above, it has a nice spec sheet, something that might have impressed a lot of reviewer. It is a pity it could have so easily been a great camera, we could never recommend it as professional photographers. Wow leaving out the sony RX100 is like having a best phone roundup and leaving out the galaxy S3 ???? I fully agree with Shooter One that RX 100 has its flaws since I owned one and have sold it last month. Rather than just getting angry on articles for no reason, i would advice you should ponder on the valid reasons these guys have made which is almost true as a (ex) RX 100 owner myself.
After four Canon compacts and three dying prematurely of lens mechanism errors which continue to plague their lineup, the Canon certainly doesn’t look attractive to me. I still like your reviews, however, my initial enthusiasum over the P7700 is a little subdued. I’m currently looking for small camera with hi-quality output, mainly for architecture photography, have you any suggestions on that topic?
Hmmmmmmmm the Sigma DP1 and Ricoh GDR IV, these are both great cameras, they are both however a little old and are suffering most in the areas where big gains have been made in the more recent releases. Jan I would just like to update my last comment, i think that the right Camera for you might just be the Fujifilm XEi with the 14mm lens attached.
I hope the reason you agree is that we are correct, at least from a professional users viewpoint. If you are thinking of getting into art photography the most important thing you will need is a good camera.
Finding a camera is not too hard, you just have to go to a shop that sells that kind of things or search the Google a little and in a minute, youa€™ll find hundreds of cameras for you to buy. There are basically three types of cameras that you can use for making art photography: advance compact camera, semi-compact with interchangeable lenses and digital SLR cameras.
Digital SLR cameras or DSLR are for a long time sen as the way to go when it comes to cameras, but the previous two groups are becoming a big threat to the popularity of DSLRs.
If you're considering selling items on eBay or other Internet shopping sites, then you might be searching for the best camera for product photography.
The goal of product photography is to make an item look as attractive as possible, so it entices buyers. Most veteran product photographers shoot with digital cameras for two reasons: cost and convenience. Automatic Intensity Adjustment: This feature works in conjunction with your camera's close-up mode. If you are planning to shoot smaller items, such as coins, stamps or jewelry, then you want to purchase a camera that offers a macro-focus setting. Remote Control Timer: This feature allows you to set up the camera on a tripod and move away so your shadow does not appear in the photo. When choosing the best camera for product photography, remember, the most important factor is comfort.
Summer is on the way and you’re going to want to capture those moments of you doing some traveling or major relaxing.
Here’s a list of the best cameras to get your hands on for some awesome outdoor photography this summer. Sony HX1 – Before this camera was announced, the rumors around it were that it would be a serious competitor to the Canon SX1. Canon G10 – Walking down the streets of New York City, you see this camera in the hands of many people. Nikon D90 – The Nikon D90 is a higher grade camera that delivers amazing image quality. You can pay a lot more, but no camera does anything significantly better than the D3300 for most people's photography. The D3300 is far superior to any mirrorless, superzoom or compact camera because it's a real DSLR, meaning you view and the camera focuses live directly through the lens optically, not via an electronic screen. If you already have a preference for Canon, the Canon SL1 is even a little bit smaller and equally excellent. I start with normal camera recommendations for normal people who just want great pictures, then get to suggestions for dedicated photographers, and end with great gift suggestions.
If you find this page helpful, you can help me keep helping you by using these links to approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. I've been buying my own gear from Adorama and B&H Photo Video since the mid-1970s and have had nothing but great service and the lowest prices, which is why I recommend them so highly. DSLRs, Digital Single-Lens-Reflex cameras, are the best camera for shooting action and motion.
If you're the sort of person who's an accomplished photographer and reads this site everyday, then you'll appreciate the many extra external controls of the Nikon D7200. The Nikon D7200 is better than anything else if you really know what you're doing, but bigger, more confusing and more expensive if you're not an expert. See Is It Worth It, which says that if you have the money, sure, go for the D7200, but if you don't, then don't worry and you'll LOVE the less expensive cameras. If you have the money, then the benefit of the D7200 is that it does everything just a little bit better.
The difference between the D7200 and less expensive cameras is mostly in how pleasant it is to hold, to own, to use and to shoot. I cover the larger Nikon D610 and other even more expensive DSLRs under more costly cameras. While you're saving all this money over more expensive cameras, I suggest getting the Nikon SB-400 miniature external flash ($175 used). The best telephoto lens for general photography and portraits is your choice of the inexpensive Nikon 55-200mm VR (about $250 or less) or the Nikon 55-300mm VR (about $400 or less). For action and sports, get the 70-300mm VR (about $587 or less), which focuses much faster.
While not cheap, if you need wider than the excellent 18-55mm VR lens lens, the Nikon 10-24mm (about $810) is the one to get. For carrying everywhere, for photographing people under any and every available lighting condition, for silent shooting and for macro, there is no camera that compares with the Fuji X100T.
The X100T is also the very best camera available for new families, travel and vacation photography. The X100T is the smallest and lightest serious camera available (half the weight of a LEICA and a fraction of the size and weight of a pro DSLR), and also gives the best results for people pictures under every sort of crazy light you'll find people being people.
No camera captures life like the Fuji X100T, and it's so easy to carry everywhere around your neck since it's even smaller and lighter than the Nikon D3300.
All the pros I've talked to prefer their X100T to the LEICAs they used to shoot for reportage photography.
New as of July 2015, the RX100 Mark IV is head and shoulders above other pocket cameras because it works essentially instantly, and the pictures look fantastic. The Nikon and Canon cameras look great for everything, while the Fujifilm X100T is optimized for people photos.
Take the Fuji for better results in low light, or take the Sony if you need a zoom lens and are shooting in better light. Built-in flashes are excellent, but can't be pointed to bounce off the ceiling to improve your indoor photos. Even if you don't bounce it, the SB-400 lets you shoot faster since it recharges much faster than the built-in flash. If you want a larger flash to get more range or to bounce sideways, the Nikon SB-700 is my favorite.
The huge SB-910 is too big unless you really need all that power as a full-time journalist or or sports shooter. The huge Canon 600EX RT is intended for full-time journalist or wedding shooters who use several of them in multiple portable flash setups. My recommendation on tripods is not to bother with one, or if you must, get something so small and light that you won't mind carrying it. When I do use a tripod, I use the lightest one I can find, a $49 Dolica GX600B200 which I always carry in my trunk. The Dolica GX600B200 has padded, adjustable-angle legs with rubber feet and or spikes, and includes a ball-head with a quick-release, a compass, a level, a center column with hook, and a nice padded shoulder-strap case in its low price! The Dolica GX600B200 is a premium product, complete with loads of nice extras (like the case) usually sold separately with more heavily-advertised brands.
If you want a bigger, stronger and even nicer tripod (I don't), the amazing $130 Dolica ZX600B300 is carbon-fibre is also a steal, weighing 3.8 pounds with padded non-rotating adjustable-angle legs, a ball-head with a quick-release, non-rotating center column with hook, and a nice padded case with shoulder strap. My Dolica ZX600B300 carbon-fibre has more features and advanced design than my other two real Gitzo tripods. I bought my original Gitzo 1228 carbon-fibre in 1995 and a smaller metal G106 Gitzo in 1997 for travel, both of which have legs that rotate making them harder to lock.
My Dolica ZX600B300 has a spring-loaded center-column hook that retracts automatically (my $500 Gitzo carbon-fibre hook doesn't retract, and is broken anyway), and the Dolica is extremely solid, much more steady than my smaller metal Gitzo G106 that weighs more!
Not a bargain, but I use my existing Novoflex Mini Magic Ball I used to use on my Gitzo G106 on my Dolica ZX600B300. All in all, my Dolica GX600B200 is all I carry with me, and I use it with its included head.
The key is to have a tripod light enough and in a convenient case so that we'll actually take it out and use it. For you guys who use tripods a lot, the Dolica ZX600B300 carbon-fibre is the new standard for nice triploids done right at the right price. I'll also always carry a graduated neutral-density filter only for shooting into a sunrise or sunset. The Nikon D3300, its kit lens, and maybe a separate flash, are all anyone really needs for anything.
I go on vacations for a week at a time with my D7200, one lens and an SB-400 flash, and never miss anything. If you have special needs, or need a lens for a camera which sells without a lens, keep reading. I usually use just this lens all day instead of a zoom because it lets me shoot indoors without flash, without a problem! Because it gathers so much more light than zoom lenses, my cameras don't have to shoot at such a high ISO or slow shutter speed, so I can take great photos in bad light. I'd suggest everyone who shoots indoors or in dim light get one of these lenses, since its a wonderful lens with a wonderful price. The only reason for longer lenses is if you can't get close enough, like to kids on stage or playing sports on the field. For wildlife photography, the best pictures aren't made with expensive telephotos; they are made by carefully sneaking up on the animals. It's always better to get closer and use the regular lens, but if you can't, here are my suggestions.
If you prefer, you can spend more for the 55-300mm VR to get longer range and a metal lens mount. If you want to get serious shooting sports, get the bigger, longer more serious Nikon 70-300mm VR lens which autofocuses much faster than the two above.
You're paying much more because this lens is ideal for shooting sports at night and stage indoors, and also because it's a heavy metal professional beast.
I carry the 70-300mm VR for my FX or film cameras, or the Nikon 55-200mm VR if I'm carrying a DX camera. As of 2016, for FX and 35mm film, I bring my 28-300mm VR instead of any of these other teles. For FX and 35mm cameras, the Nikon 16-35mm is the world standard for ultrawide performance. If an 18-55mm lens isn't wide enough, my favorite for all Nikon DX camera is Nikon's 10-24mm DX. For DX cameras, Nikon's 18-200mm VR II has been the top do-it-all lens since it came out in 2005.


Today's -II version is the same as the original, with a zoom lock at 18mm I never use anyway. For FX and 35mm cameras, Nikon's 28-300mm VR does everything except for action in low-light or crazy-wide angles.
With the 28-300mm VR, I can dump all my other lenses into the lake; the 28-300 is perfect for 99% of what I do on serious photo outings. For FX and film, Nikon has made fantastic lenses ever since the 1950s, many of which are available for almost free, used. See Recommended Nikon FX lenses, the Nikon FX Dream Team, Nikon D3 Lens Suggestions, and Nikon FX Cheapskate Lenses for suggestions. My favorite wides for Canon are either the 17-40mm L (for light weight and bargain price) or 16-35mm L II (wider and faster). I own fancier cameras because they make it even easier to do fringe-element things, like burn away at 10 frames per second for sports.
I love my 5D Mk III over all my Nikons and LEICAs because it handles and feels so much better. For less money, many people prefer the Canon 6D, which also adds GPS and Wi-Fi in exchange for a few features removed. I prefer the D610 or D7200 to the more heavier and more expensive D800, D800E and D4 because the D610's and D7200's ergonomics are far superior, and the images are the same or better. Honestly, the biggest difference between full-frame (FX) in the D610 and the smaller DX sensor of the D7200 is that the D610 viewfinder is bigger.
Spend $30 of what's left on a copy of The Art of Photography, and give the rest away to the needy.
With RealRaw, you both have the actual image captured on film forever, and it's easy to get digital files if you want them, too. Shot on 35mm film, the F6 gives digital images of equal 24MP resolution to the D3X, with better color and dynamic range. Other favorite Nikon 35mm cameras available used are the Nikon FA, the indomitable Nikon F4 and Nikon F5. I'd also suggest a PME metered prism finder, which lets you see the image as you expect in an SLR.
The Canon AE-1 Program is one of my very favorite manual-focus Canon FD cameras, and it sells used for next to nothing. The LEICA M7 (2002-today) is a rangefinder version of the Nikon FE that uses Leica's superior lenses. Another reason to use the LEICA is that it and its lenses are much smaller and lighter than SLRs.
Its 70 x 56mm images are over double the area of the largest medium-format digital sensors. It has been one of the most popular cameras for decades for serious landscape and outdoor photography because of its ultra light weight, ability to fold up about as big as a book, its ample set of movements, and great screen. It has recently been discontinued; I need to test some newer cameras to give personal recommendations, however I suspect that the $990 Toyo Field 45CF is also excellent, and built a lot tougher out of metal. Of course you can go whole-hog and buy the classic of classics, the timeless Linhof Master Technika, for $10,000.

Those selfless little bear traps trying to grab a bit of your money as they point you toward last year’s most popular (noisy and compromise ridden) compact camera from not the cheapest website.
It sports a fixed focal length 35mm F2 .0 lens built into the smallest body that could do the job of focusing a near perfect image onto one massive 24mp imaging chip. The Leica costs considerably more around ?500 v the Lumix at about ?300 – fathom that?
But Panasonic make the real-deal hollywood motion picture v4k video type cameras and some of that special sauce has found its way into this tiny camera giving it fantastic broadcast quality video. We have a LX7 and a  LX5 with DMW-LWA52 super wide adapter and these elegant and superb little cameras get used much more than you might think, definitely considering the choice of camera weaponry laying around our studios. If it were a man it would be Daniel Craig as james bond 007, sharp infallible and deadly accurate, not gorgeous but passably handsome in a sharp dark suit, if it were a women it would be Kate Middleton, looking down at the rest of womenanity but not quite sure how it got there.
The whole point of a camera like this is you can take it with you at all times with ease, and be sure of one thing it is the best Camera it could be at this size; you are not giving a lot away to almost any camera available.
For us the Canon s120 is the right camera to have in your jeans pocket every day of the year.
On the whole though, Camera shop staff will not steer you far wrong, after all most shops will let you take it back within a week if you are unhappy (some 28 days if you still have all the bits by then) that said, they often do exchanges though a gritted smile. We can say with authority that the Sony RX100 is an almost perfect camera, with two car crash flaws that could have been put right for a few extra pounds.
This is due to a mismatch between Sonys amazing chip and the processing engine they chose to put into the RX100, in order to keep down costs the processing engine is low spec for a 20meg chip and stop the shot to shot time being too noticeably long the processing is done in a hurry. Interior photography with a dark room and a few lights will result in totally overblown highlights, no matter what HDR modes you use.
The picture will look naturally more appealing to a certain audience, but the blacks will be clamped and you will lose details in the shadows. But after actively testing it, I wouldn’t recommend it to photography amateurs that want good IQ.
The click less control dial contributes to vague and un engaging shooting experience apart from the unpredictable Flash metering. Hence we had only one member of staff on cover last week and no one to moderate the website comments this weekend.
You guys & girls need to take you time and write a bit slower next time ?? Still this is the best review of smaller professional cameras I have found on the net. Selecting a really good camera out of all these is a completely different issue, however and it requires you to put a little thought into. Ia€™ll explain each of them for you in this article and you decide which one will you use to make your art photos. You can put them in your jacket or other pocket and it will always be with you when you want to take a picture of something. They are largely inspired by the Leica film cameras and use an image sensor which is almost as large as in SLR cameras. They offer great flexibility, have a big array of lenses and all other kinds of accessories which can help you prepare for just about any shooting situation.
Successful product photographers are able to capture fine details of an object clearly without compromising the overall integrity of the item. Ideally, you want to take advantage of as much natural light as possible to get photos with the truest colors.
It allows you to capture crystal-clear shots even if your item is backlit or there are harsh shadows present. Bad lighting will make your item look washed out or the edges will appear too sharp and the shadows too hard. Most cameras' flash units are intended to light subjects situated three feet away or farther, not ones that are sitting 10 inches away. This feature allows the camera to focus on a subject closer than is in its normal focus range, which for many point-and-shoot digital cameras is about three feet.
It is also helpful in that it eliminates any jarring to the camera that may come when you hit the shutter button. Most note that the camera you are most comfortable with, and the one that yields the most aesthetically pleasing images, is the device you should use to shoot objects you plan to sell.
Kodak's line of EasyShare digital cameras provide exceptional picture quality for not a lot of money. This moderately-price 12.2-megapixel digital SLR camera provides superior image quality and sports a large three-inch LCD screen. If a camera feels good in your hands and takes decent pictures, then you will be more apt to use it. Chances are that most of those shots will be taken on the streets or outside somewhere so we’ve rounded up the best cameras out there for those circumstances. With 1080p HD video, 20x optical zoom, and 10MP (which is more than most people need) this is an excellent camera for summer travel and street photography.
The main advantages this camera has over the Canon is a wider lens and HD video mode and it is a bit smaller than the G10.
It’s a much-loved camera that, when you look at it, reminds you a bit of the rangefinders of the film days. Nikon cameras feel great in your hands and give the users a sense of confidence that the camera has been solidly designed and can to do what is demanded of it (and more). It’s great for street photography this summer because it shoots 4fps for those really quick moment. Below I cover the best cameras for general use, and at the new Best Camera page I suggest exactly the best camera for each kind of subject, situation and application. What's the best camera that can handle every kind of photo situation, but still lightweight and at a reasonable price?
Especially if you have kids in sports, a DSLR like the D3300 is a huge step up from a point-and-shoot or iPhone because it can zoom-in (especially with a telephoto lens) and focus fast enough to track all the action. The reason guys like me pay more for fancier cameras isn't for better pictures; it's for more controls and options that let us few who actually know how to use all these controls to get to them faster.
The D3300 focuses fast enough to catch people and kids doing anything in any light, while other kinds of cameras get lost hunting. The differences between the SL1 and D3300 are a matter of which fits your hands better or which has controls or menus that you personally might find more convenient. Most of these places ship internationally, and if you are outside the USA, B&H Photo Video even has a calculator which shows the final, total cost to-your-door including taxes, shipping and duties before you complete the order. Using these links costs you nothing (and probably saves you money), gets you the same great service I've enjoyed myself, and most importantly, is what helps me keep adding to this website for everyone's benefit.
Just as your signature is uniquely your own no matter what sort of pen you use, it's the same with pictures and cameras. The biggest differences among these cameras is not technical picture quality (the pictures from these cameras are indistinguishable from each other), but how many knobs and buttons they have to allow skilled and experienced photographers to adjust the things that most people don't even understand. It is more pleasant to use because it has a bigger, brighter viewfinder, and everything works a little faster and more smoothly. These are for special purposes; the D7200 is the best you can get overall, and the less expensive Nikon DSLRs like the D5300 that adds a swivel LCD screen are no slouch either. The D3300 and D7200 have built-in flashes, but this tiny external flash gives a lot more range, and most importantly, saves the camera's batteries and lets you shoot a lot faster because it recharges almost instantly after each shot. The difference is that the 55-300 can zoom-in closer than the 55-200; each works as well otherwise.
It's best for families and people because of its unique ability to get great skin tones in any light, and great for travel because it's a full-featured camera in a very small package. It's low-light, auto fill-flash, auto ISO, auto WB and color rendition under difficult conditions is far better than any of my Canons, Nikons or LEICAs. Even if it seems wiggly, it's still good enough to hold your camera so long as you're not trying to wiggle it while you're taking the picture.
It's all-metal, and lighter than any of the far more expensive brands that advertise like crazy, only 2.5 pounds total for head and legs.
My new Dolica ZX600B300 has legs that don't rotate so it's much faster to open and close them. No, it's not the sturdiest if I'm going to bang on it during exposure, but I don't jiggle the camera while shooting and this way I need not lug a heavier tripod. It's bigger and tougher than the Dolica GX600B200, but also a bit heavier and more expensive, too. I wouldn't expect it to hold up under regular use, but as an inexpensive tripod to hide away for when you need it, or one light enough to take everywhere in case you need it, for $15 you can't go wrong.
They are also expensive, but I'm still using the Tiffen grads I bought back in the 1990s as well. If you want to go whole-hog, I see no reason ever to need to buy anything other than the DX Dream Team lenses. Imagination is the important part, with which any lens will do, and without imagination, any lens will make awful portraits. All of these lenses are super sharp and zoom and focus well, the difference is in what you want to do with them not just today, but tomorrow, too. Except for low-light action or crazy-wide angles, the 18-200mm does everything I need in DX.
The 28-300 also covers every reasonable focal length, has vibration-reduction so you can forget the tripod, and you can get instant manual-focus override just by flipping the focus ring. It's ultra sharp, extremely well made, has image stabilization for hand-held shots in the dark, and it's small and light. I put the camera around my neck, and if I'm on a dedicated photo trip, maybe have a bag with me with just two more lenses. No one needs this, but if you have the cash or use cameras so much that even little improvements are appreciated, go for it.
The old 5D was also the king of landscape and nature photography, and to be honest, if you can find a deal on an old 5D, it's a bigger pain to use with a dreadful LCD, but also gives spectacular results.
The pictures are as good; the difference being that you get more depth-of-field with the D7200, or more subject isolation (narrower depth of field) with the D610.
Even today in 2016 pros wished they could afford a new Hasselblad, the same as they've wished for over 50 years.
I love my 503 CX because it's the least expensive Hasselblad new enough to have the super-bright Acute-Matte screen. As shown above with a waist-level finder, you have to look down to see a reversed image, exactly as on a TLR.
Everything on it just works, as opposed to more expensive Canons, like the New F-1, that cost a lot more and do a lot less.
Shooting 6x7cm medium-format film, this lightweight interchangeable-lens rangefinder camera is the same or smaller in size and weight than 35mm SLRs and DSLRs, while offering far superior image quality and more convenient size and weight.
They are as good as LEICA, but for a format with over four times the image area of full-frame 35mm. I also use a 1956 Linhof Technika IV which is the same thing, but I grew tired of carrying the weight. If you wish to make a printout for personal use, you are granted one-time permission only if you PayPal me $5.00 per printout or part thereof. Or possibly a good value B’day present for a reluctant yet budding, rich yet poor, student relation?) They will mill around the studio waiting until everything seems to go quite and the flashing stops for a few moments, and just pose that quite important compact camera question, strait at one of us, in one super long sentence without stopping to for a breath.
By massive what I mean is not the 24mp, it is the actual chip size, it is as big as a full 35mm film frame, by compact standards this is Gigantisaurus huge.
It  costs about ?170 for the LX5, but it turns a little cameras into one of the best things an idiot with money can buy for photographing small interior spaces and making them look amazingly good. It is sort of like fuji put an experienced social photographer in the camera and let them take care of all the settings and hard stuff and you just get to chase the action, click and look totally fly doing it. But unlike the Sony it seems decent value, as you will be using it all the time, and it is truly exceptional at doing something we all need to do, take brilliant natural pictures of the family.


So… Our best advice is simply take a walk and while you are out buy this underpriced jewel and start using it on the way home and keep going.
It is capable of amazing results, as are all the cameras listed above, I guess the point is; it is near to leading the field in every major area. The main standout feature for us is the handing, it is so comfortable and quick to use, the controls (especially the very handy programable control ring) are exactly where they should be and have all the correct shortcuts for finding what you need, when you need it, without much menu digging. The net is full of great technical tests and reading endless comparisons does give you some idea of what you are buying. You would still be buying a brilliant Camera if you purchased any of the others listed, and a lot of other Cameras we did not feel quite made this top 5 recommendation. Sony decided to let the camera go to market as is, basically because to fix these issues would push the Camera above a certain carefully planned price point and would give them nothing to improve on in 13 months when the RX120 comes out.
This is the kind of processing that all cameras do behind the scenes and it is absolutely crucial in fixing highlight and noise issues, it is a very scary exercise to hack a compact camera and get a look at the real raw file direct from the chip.
At the widest end the RX100 lens is only 28mm, the winning Cannon S110 is 24mm, a world of difference shooting indoors. Of course, it will be less visible if you re-size down the pictures from 20Mpix to only ~4Mpixel, but the overall look of the picture will remain slightly affected by this watercolor effect that you find on all smaller-sensors Sony Camera.
We did read the DP review, but we did not feel that there was a noticeable problem on the P7700, we found processing time was only a problem when shooting rapidly for a string of shots, (the buffer fills in about 3 or 4 shots in rapid succession) then it does start to slow down considerably, I guess as it tries to write and process both files at once while waiting for the storage chip to accept more data. The foveon chip in the Sigma has real potential, but it need more development to take advantage of its big intrinsic superiorities.
If you have one of those, use it to take pictures of you and your friends at a party, but please, and I beg you, dona€™t use it to take art photos. They dona€™t have a very big range, but have a full user control, built-in image stabilizer (no more camera shakes), plenty of external buttons for you to play with, and a very good quality of image, except when it comes to lower light levels. They offer and excellent alternative to the larger SLRs, with the advantage of being able to put them in your pocket (those with a smaller lens, at least).
The biggest problem with this one is that the equipment is large and heavy and that may dissuade you from actually taking it with you. In regards to convenience, photos taken with a film camera will have to put into a digital format and burned on a CD before you can display them on the Web.
To eliminate these problems and reduce reflection spots, look for a camera that provides the option of turning off the built-in flash. To avoid washing out an object, activate the Automatic Intensity Adjustment feature, which helps modify the flash according to individual situations. A decent macro-focus will focus within an inch of the object without distorting its appearance. This collection of digital cameras is best suited for amateur photographers who casually sell items on the Internet. It is specially designed for studio and product photography and has a dynamic range of features. Additionally, the articulating LCD will come in handy when trying to compose your image in those hard to shoot situations. It has its own easy modes but also allows users to go fully manual in their settings to adjust for the exact shot that one wants.
The articulating LCD screen is something that most users will enjoy because it will help to frame their shots better in harder to shoot situations. Further, its low light imagery and High ISO capabilities can deliver very clean images at night or while shooting sports (like street ball or anything else that moves fast). The D3300 has the same adjustments, just that you'll more often have to use a menu to set them instead of a knob or button. If you know what you're doing, all a better camera does is make it easier, faster and more convenient to take great pictures.
If you want to take better pictures, your efforts are better spent learning how to take better pictures, not in buying new cameras. In-camera flashes drain the camera's battery and can take a long time to recycle after each shot.
The catch with the Tokina macro won't autofocus on the less expensive DSLRs (the wide will focus on everything).
Yes, I can get the same results after fiddling with my Nikon or Canon or LEICA for half an hour, but the Fuji X100T always nails the first shot in difficult light all by itself without fiddling, when means the Fuji gets my shot while I'd still be fiddling with one of the other cameras.
The LEICA is great for nature and landscapes as I suggest below, but for the people shots that LEICA used to do best, today it's Fuji. Companies that spend money on advertising and sponsoring big-name photographers aren't spending that money on making me a better tripod, so I'll stick with Dolica where we get a much better tripod for less money. I use it for travel, and I use a huge Bogen Manfrotto 3275 410 Geared Head on my big Gitzo 1228 in the studio sometimes. They are expensive, but you'll be using your polarizing filter on many lenses in the future; filters don't go obsolete.
Cameras drop in price and go obsolete every year, while lenses can stay current for decades, and their prices usually go up.
Unlike the 55-200mm VR, which only works with DX cameras, the 70-300mm VR also works on professional FX and film cameras if you upgrade later.
It covers every reasonable focal length, has vibration-reduction so you can forget the tripod, and you can get instant manual-focus override just by flipping the focus ring. It is about 25% bigger in every dimension from the 18-200mm; I'm showing them at the same size for detail.
It's new enough that any you buy will probably work perfectly without needing service, and old enough to be inexpensive. Even though the light Tachihara feels flimsy, its results are what get published every month in your landscape calendars and seen on gallery walls. People are not so dumb though, they can smell the sweet bias and buried bodies written about popular cameras on the internet. It has a raft of technical features and given decent conditions and a skilful hand this Nikon camera can produce images as good as almost any DSLR available today. If you are a top international professional photographer like a couple of us here, or this is going to be your first ever Camera, take some images on the S120 and you are going to to have several Wow!
But unless you are ready to invest days of reserch and background checking, a lot of technical reviews and image comparisons will mislead you (if you know little) and confuse you (if you know a little) we often are amazed by the utter lies put out by some sites. And they assumed that most users would be happy with the amazing specs, and a lot of very selectively blind reviews you can read on the net (often surrounded by the sickly sweet smell of affiliate links). The other major flaw is the almost laughable rolling shutter effect when filming any moving object, it is quite a poor show on a modern camera and even an iphone 5 will make a better job of filming objects moving from right to left accross the frame. Finally the RX100 is 37.4mm from front to back by a digital micrometer (Sony claim 36mm) the Cannon S110 is just over 26mm.
I wish they would have a more neutral treatment like Canon, that preserves the details with a very limited noise. Also, it has a hotshoe, which is a treat if you want to use FM wireless-remote flash in daylight, where optical-infrared slaves wash out.
Your review does not have a single camera in common with the awful 5 best compacts on DP review – Bravo.
You are obviously impressive photographers, but you should let someone else proof your writing, it would look a lot more professional. These cameras are excellent for those who are always on the move and lookout for a good photo. They also provide an excellent image quality, at least when compared to the basic and medium range SLR cameras.
This is why it is important to shoot with a camera that captures high-resolution digital images for the Web and print. What's more, with traditional film cameras there's no way to tell if you have captured a clean shot until you process the prints.
The cameras come with a wealth of hardware and software to help you get stunning images on the Web.
In addition, its commercial photography applications are second to none and offer film-like results.
With 14.7MP, 5x Optical zoom, and all those wheels to help you set the image to be exactly what you want it to be, it is by one one of the best cameras for street photography for the average person. Tests are showing that the Canon T1i has a sensor similar to that of the Canon 50D, a camera that is higher grade than this and is meant for sports shooters. In fact, it has the best low light imaging capabilities here on this list according to the DXoMark rating. If you shoot all day every day as I do, it's worth it, otherwise, there's no reason to pay more since most people have no idea what these other settings do.
If you want to save money with the Tokina lenses instead of Nikon, that could pay the difference in price between the D7200 and the D3300. We spend all day, every day using cameras as professional tools to make the best photographs possible.
The answer will always depends on: who is asking, what they need a compact camera for, how much money they have to spend, how many megapixels they need** and an host of other flighty personal variables. Anyhow, If you are house buying and you see one of these swinging around the neck of someone in the background at the estate office, run away, or at least make sure you see the apartment with your own eyes before making an offer. It is that go anywhere, do anything, super camera that you could hold comfortably in the palm of your hand – A camera this brilliant could only be dreamed about a few years ago. This camera is (for something this good) very very compact, it is extremely slim and with the lens retracted is nearly totally flat, the ends are rounded just perfectly to slip into your pocket, it has a good built-in lens hood and so does not need a case to be carried. This is one of the very best compact cameras available today…But what makes it a true first, numero uno, stand out winner is: it really is a compact! Now can we have that Facebook share… this article took several months to compile and test and we have saved you a fortune buying that x15 heap of crap you could have ended up with. So in short the RX100 is a first place Camera except for taking pictures and shooting video… There is an old saying about Sony products, occasionally they are very good but stupidly expensive, but usually they are made to a price and only look good on a spec sheet.
Between all the company bling and bribes; we in the shop still all know exactly what cameras are good and which ones are hyped.
It's much faster and easier to shoot with a digital camera equipped with a LCD display screen. The 20x optical zoom means that when you see something really cool going on across the street you’ll be able to zoom in nice and close then snap the photo you need.
The above picture is the LX-3 from Nokton, a Flickr user that customized the LX-3 to be something more than it already is.
However, the range of shooting modes will allow most people to be able to pick that camera up and use it well enough.
We do not really care about brand name status, PR, advertising, or press reviews – we test cameras by using them, flaws, bad design, weaknesses or quality issues will be revealed very soon in the heat of battle. In the end all the bull does is sell a load of rubbish to people to lazy or busy to look into it and the rest of us just keep on using a scratched iphone to capture those  magic stumbleupons, all without much pride in the results. It IS just the most expensive & beautiful lens with a huge very high quality chip attached on the end, total superbity.
The best camera you can have to take a picture is… the one you have on you when you need it, most likely the one you actually carry everyday! We have to buy all our Canon stuff at full price !- Some other makers do give stuff away or give reviewers sweet discounts…Just bear in mind we make money as photographers in fact we make quite a lot of money, we buy the gear we WANT to buy, because it is the best stuff we can find, in fact cost is often the last thing we consider.
I feel that the RX100 does not come close to the top 5, what ever I have read, buy one if you like and make your own mind up, if you can avoid anything that shines, reflects or is moving it is a winner.
I would suggest grabbing one in a camera store and running a few shot, it is certainly what I will do this afternoon. So if I wanted to shoot art quality architectural photography I would just make myself a special Jacket with the biggest custom pockets ever seen and run out and buy a Ebony RW45E and a 72mm Super Angulon XL to go with it. Everyday we take quality equipment almost to it’s limits in a creative pact with tech Satan. Pity, there are some amazingly good pocketable cameras out there right now, and a few are even great value too. The out of focus areas will be very blurry this tends to produce very cool pictures: things look super sharp and surrounded by sexy out of focusness. I could use this camera all day long, and when I have, it is still keeps amazing me to the very last shot. It is amazingly good for macro work and very fast at focusing balancing all the variables that make good macro images as well as being stupidly sharp (did i say the bit about being sharp?). Whereupon it will start up extremely quickly (well under a second) and be ready to take a near SLR pro-quality photograph almost instantly. Not the expensive brick you leave at home because it’s a bit too big to fit in your pocket and forget. Have some faith – The s110 is the one to get in 98% of cases, if you are unsure it is probably defiantly the one to get. Thank you for highlighting this, we certainly will add this to our findings if we find we can reproduce it. This helps you determine whether your subject is centered and in focus, as well as if the lighting is appealing. We love cameras, if we are not using one, we are either thinking, talking or dreaming about how they could be better. The detail in a fine quality print, made from any of the cameras on this page will blow your socks off, even if printed as big as a wall). It has a fully articulating flip-out LCD screen which is enormously useful in real life situations and enables the camera to be used effectively even in the most awkward spaces, as well as this it has a very reasonable electronic viewfinder.. With phone cameras being so excellent of late, compact cameras need to make stunning images, be faultless, small and tough or what is the point? Similar to the Sony and very much a very situation focal length, it reproduces life in a similar way to how we perceive when we are looking at the stuff in front of us. In terms of its physical controls it really is probably the best handling compact camera available its front grip and rear thumb-rest make it dreamily comfortable to hold with all of the controls coming perfectly to hand, and in this it truly outclasses its closest rival the excellent Canon G-15. Not the best reasons for a choice in puerist terms, but thats not always the reason for looking at other options?
It is a Carl Zeiss Sonnar 35mm F2  lens and take it from us this is optical heaven on earth.
The problem is without any ability to zoom at all, you are going to have to do some legwork when you wanna zoom.
Lowlight performance is superb too (this camera is so good i am getting bored) although there are 1 or 2 compacts out there that can compete. Probably this camera’s outstanding feature is its unbelievable levels of technical control, there is simply a completists set of semi automatic modes as well as full manual control giving you that feeling of being an expert in charge of the experts tool. It has a class leading 3 inch LCD on the back, unfortunately not a touch screen, still bright and very clear. There a lot of great Cameras that come close to the Canon s120 and one or two even look better on paper, but in practice they fall short of being as good and without compromise.
