If you’re thinking about buying a digital camera, but you have no idea where to start looking, or if you have a general idea but you’d like to get some second opinions, look no further. Digital Photography Review has everything you need to make an informed decision. Detailed reviews, a tool to directly compare cameras, and a multitude of ratings and written experiences by photographers will shed the marketing skin off and let you know which cameras are really worth their price tags. To round it off, Digital Photography Review gives you sample galleries of unedited shots in full resolution, so you can see exactly what you’ll be getting. Long-time favorite of mine.
And if that’s not enough for you, you should check out a
relatively new feature that Flickr has been offering for a while but most people are unaware of. Camera Finder lets you filter photos by camera model, and presents you with charts about the most popular cameras around.
I think both links are great resources to help you with your purchase. The only thing that’s missing is the possibility to actually try the cameras, but they’re an excellent starting point before you head off to the store. Happy shopping!
