Camera review sites

Camera review sites

  • Digital Photography Reviewhas an especially detailed tool for comparing the specs on different cameras, along with a buying guide.

    Find it at: www.dpreview.com

  • Digital Camera Resource Page offers an interactive buyer's guide that works on how you plan to use the camera instead of just your opinion of different features.

    Find it at: www.dcresource.com

  • Imaging Resource stands out from the pack with its Comparometer, which lets you compare sample photos taken with different cameras. The site also offers a simple camera shopping guide.

    Find it at: www.imaging-resource.com

  • Steve's DigiCamsoffers detailed reviews that are unfortunately broken into multiple pages, making reading clumsy.

    Find it at: www.steves-digicams.com

A Better Starting Point

Honestly, camera reviews make me crazy, since I don't have a background in traditional photography to help me understand all the jargon. I've tried to lay out some of the basics here, but if you want more information about how to think about the right camera for your needs and how to understand the camera reviews, I recommend Larry Chen's Take Control of Buying a Digital Camera, one of the Take Control ebooks. Larry also provides advice on evaluating image quality and gives you a camera comparison worksheet to help you track all the different models you're considering.
