A camera is great for people who wish to capture moments and make them indelible. It is not easy judging the most superior camera in the photography as the criteria for the comparison is somewhat ambiguous. So, although every camera serves its purpose in one way or the other, here are some that really have revolutionized the art of image capturing:
• Fujifilm Finepix X100- If money is not a cause of concern and you are looking for something that will make you the envy of all your friends- including people with expensive DSLRs; then X-100 may be your answer. This is constructed from magnesium alloy and is specially designed for those who like it vintage. The camera also includes a manually operated shutter-speed dial, a range finder and a dedicated aperture ring on the camera’s fixed 35 mm lens.
• Nikon D7000-The D7000 is basically meant for amateurs and professionals who can afford it. It is basically designed for users who are equipped with 37 point AF system, large viewfinder that offers 100% frame coverage and 16.2 megapixels. Better still; the D7000 will be able to deliver leading results in low-light situations when the use of a tripod or a flashgun is a problem.
• Pentax K-r- Companies such as Nikon and Canon are currently dominating the DSLR market, but the most economic DSLR that is currently available in the market is the Pentax K-r. The most notable thing is this midget of a camera is superior to them in all the departments.
• Panasonic Lumix G3- Usually when a manufacturer introduces a new version of a particular model, the differences between the previous and the current version are fairly minimal. However the G3 version which shows a marked improvement from the G2. From a noticeable reduction in the camera’s physical proportions to expanded HD movie recording abilities, it has come a long way.
• Sony Cyber shot DSC-HX9V- This is one of the best cameras when it comes to image quality. The addition of a 16.2 mega pixel Exmor R CMOS sensor works great in situations that are best for situations where the lighting is low.
• Cannon EOS- The new and improved version of Cannon 600D has a really useful, high-resolution (921k-dot) tilt-and-swivel monitor that really adds to the USP. You also stand to gain the creative benefits of Canon’s Creative Filters, with the 600D sporting five in total, including the always-fun Miniaturize effect for creating fake tilt-shift images. This 600D also has a lot to offer to DSLR newcomers.
• Sony NEX-5- Sony is the first manufacturer that has introduced APS-C sized sensors to the genre, in the shape of the NEX-5, NEX-3, and the recently announced NEX-C3. Though the NEX-3 has been discontinued, the NEX-5 remains a pretty competent camera in its own right.
• Nikon D5100- D5100 sports the same 16.2 mega pixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processor used in the D7000 and benefits from a fantastic 3inch, 920k-dot articulated LCD monitor on the back.
• Olympus PEN EP-3- When it comes to the image quality, EP-3 is superlative in spite of its 1960 vintage style. It has a resolution at 12.2 mega pixel and also clicks amazing shots in low light.
• Canon PowerShot S95- Although photographers prefer cameras of a DSLR quality images, this is a very useful camera to have. It is small enough to fit in a coat pocket and offers quality images too!
