Wake up, PunkMetalMamma! Get a clue! What do you REALLY want in a camera? Wendy Sheehan Donnell of PC Magazine just might have the answer for ALL of us.
Do you want a small camera that requires minimal effort, but takes great pictures? A pocket point and shoot is probably your best bet. Need to get close to the action without carrying a huge camera with a big lens? A compact superzoom model is likely for you. Or do you want a lightning-fast shooter that lets you swap out lenses and play with settings? Then you want a D-SLR or a compact interchangeable-lens camera. Plan on shooting on the beach or the slopes? You need a ruggedized waterproof model.
PC Mag picked winners from the cameras they reviewed in each of the aforementioned categories to make up their top 10. Remember, though, the digital camera market is a robust one; manufacturers release new products throughout the year, and they’re continually testing and reviewing cameras.
