Looking For A Stellar Digital Camera Deal?

By Chris Campbell

When you think about which digital video camera would be the best for you, you might have to do some research to see what people are saying about the specific cameras.

Some of the point and shoot cameras do have video recording capabilities. The Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has the ability for video recording in AVI. This is a nice camera for under three hundred dollars. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 has the video capabilities in QuickTime.

This camera sells for around three hundred and fifty dollars. Both of these cameras have a wide array of other features that make them ideal cameras.

Digital SLR cameras on the other hand have a number of openings: the battery opening, the lens, the memory card and more. Any opening that a camera has is a potential place where the weather can affect the electronics of the digital camera.

Plus, the lens of the digital SLR extend out of the camera, and when it sticks out it can take scrapes or you can bang it on sharp objects and rocks by mistake.With a case for digital SLR cameras, accidents like these are prevented, so your investment is safe even in the worst weather conditions.

Although every camera will say it has the best digital video recorder, you still need to find reviews from other users. You want a camera that gives you a clean video and not a fuzzy video.

Ok, so I took a little gander at the top camera review sites,to see what they had to say. And, I afraid I must admit, that it doesn't look too good for the anti-Canon crowd. Canon seems to once again have garnered much praise from the critics.

After aggregating a number of five star - top 100 camera choices, Canon seem to occupy about 50% of the top spots, with Sony and Nikon both achieving around 25% each. There were a few other nice camera models, but none statistically significant.

If your new to the world of digital cameras, that should at least give you an idea of who the big dogs are in this business. Canon is tough to beat, but it's worth mentioning, that all the cameras I own have been good performers for me. That includes the non-Canon cameras. It really comes down to getting the right camera for you, at a price you can afford.
