The camera industry has certainly advanced throughout time, from images on silver chloride paper to the invention of digital cameras. With so many different choices available, choosing a suitable camera appears to be as difficult as rocket science. There’s no denying that digital camera reviews are helpful but only to a certain extent. Digital camera reviews are normally divided into 5 sections, point and shoot cameras, DLSRs, compact interchangeable-lens cameras, super zoom cameras and tough rugged cameras.
Choosing between these 5 classes can be hard enough but here’s my advice, if you’re not a professional photographer or a nature explorer, the most ideal type of camera would be the point and shoot camera. Based on digital camera reviews, the ultimate point and shoot camera for the year 2011 is the Canon PowerShot S95. This 10.0 Mp CCD Sensor camera has a 3 inch screen and weighs 195 grams. This camera will set you back about USD 400.00.
The Nikon Coolpix S 9100 ranks second in the rating’s list. This 12.1 megapixel camera has a 18x optical zoom capability. This 2.5 x 4.2 x 1.4 inch camera comes in three different colours, black, red and silver. The market price for this camera is USD 330.00. The third best camera on the list is the Nikon Coolpix P300 which costs about USD 300.00. This 12 megapixel camera has a 3 inch screen weighs about 6.7 ounces.
Occupying the fourth place is the one and only Canon PowerShot SD 4000. This is a 10 megapixel camera has a 4x optical zoom capability and uses a SD memory card. This camera has a 3 inch screen weighs about 6.1 ounces. After the Canon PowerShot SD 4000 comes the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10. This 16 Mp CMOS sensor camera is worth USD 280.00 and has a 2.8 inch LCD screen. It has a 7x optical zoom lens and weighs 5.8 ounces.
The sixth place goes to Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS which has a market price of USD 300.00. Similar to the camera before, this camera has a CMOs sensor. This 12 Mp camera has a 3.2 inch camera screen and the screen is touch sensitive. Next in line would be the Fujifilm FinePix Z800EXR, a 12 megapixel camera with a Super CCD sensor. It can zoom up to five times, has a 3.5 inch LCD screen and weighs about 5.6 ounces.
The Casio Tryx Digital Camera ranks 8th on the list and will set you back around USD 280.00. It has a CMOS sensor and a 12 megapixel lens. Its 3 inch screen is touch sensitive and weighs 5.5 ounces. The 9th camera in the digital camera reviews for the point and shoot class would be the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS digital camera. This camera weighs 5.3 ounce and is 3.7 x 2.2 x 0.9 inches big. This 16 megapixel camera has a 3 inch LCD screen and can zoom up to 5 times.
