Rigorous Testing and Comparisons

The Digital Camera HQ editorial staff logged many hours deciding on the best cameras for each category of photographer. “We evaluated the cameras based on a number of factors,” says Liam McCabe, Editor of Digital Camera HQ. “Not only did we do hands-on reviews, but we also pored over user commentary to make sure camera owners agreed with our conclusions, and weren’t finding any problems that can arise after a camera’s been in use for a while.” In addition, the Digital Camera HQ editorial team looked at the online stores currently charging the lowest prices for the winning cameras, to make sure the stores were reputable.

Canon remains the brand to beat in the digital camera market. In each of the five guides, the Digital Camera HQ editorial team chose a Canon as one of the top three cameras. Nikon had three cameras out of the five guides; Sony and Olympus each had two; and Panasonic, Pentax, and Fujifilm each had one.

“Canon has done an impressive job of designing and manufacturing outstanding cameras for a variety of photographers,” says Editor McCabe. “Canon remains the digital camera company to beat.”
