Digital Camera HQ Releases “Five Digital Camera Trends of 2010”

Share Article

Liam McCabe, Editor of Digital Camera HQ, describes five trends he sees in digital cameras being released this year – and he grades and discusses each trend.

One or two are so inane I wish I could make the madness stop!

Digital Camera HQ ( has released a timely article that will help digital camera buyers evaluate the new digital cameras of 2010: “Digital Camera HQ Grades the Trends of 2010.” The article can be found at Digital Camera HQ’s home page.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Not All Trends are Positive

McCabe reports that the digital camera industry is headed in the right direction in most cases, but not in others. “Some trends I spotted are wonderful – they make you wonder why they didn’t happen years ago,” says McCabe. “One or two are so inane I wish I could make the madness stop!”

Thorough Analysis

McCabe pored over all the digital camera models slated for release in 2010 – more than 50. By analyzing the specifications and comparing the features with those found on cameras from the past several years, McCabe has truly done his homework.

No Camera Manufacturer is Perfect

McCabe looked at the offerings from all the well-known digital camera manufacturers – and then from some lesser known ones. “It’s too easy to generalize about one manufacturer,” says McCabe. “Even the very best companies can get caught adding features and functions that don’t make sense, perhaps because ‘everyone else is doing it,’ or because they didn’t read the tea leaves correctly.”

Grades Show Which Trends are Positive, Negative

McCabe has given letter grades to each of the five trends, ranging from a solid A to a dismal D. “I gave the grades for two reasons,” says McCabe. “First, they make the article easy to read and understand for consumers. And second, the grades put the digital camera industry on notice that their product decisions are being watched and evaluated by industry observers.”

Digital Camera HQ Has All the Latest Cameras Covered

Editor McCabe and his editorial team have been working long hours to cover the latest cameras being announced by the digital camera industry. Even months before the cameras will be sold, has specifications, press releases, editor’s comments, user comments, and pre-order information on nearly every camera.
