Digital Cameras Ratings Abolish Camera Comparison Guesswork

Digital cameras ratings are great tools for deciding which camera best fits your needs and budget. Digital camera reviews are often just the reviewer's opinion. But ratings consider all the specifications, features, how the camera was designed and test results. These facts are then analyzed and summarized to help the reader make an objective decision.

Before reading the ratings though, we must decide which type of camera fits our needs. The four main types of digital still cameras are:

  • Ultra-Compact
  • Compact
  • Mid-Sized
  • Digital SLR
  • Top Rated Digital Cameras

    This summary of top rated cameras is grouped by type, but in no particular ranking order.

    Ultra-Compact digital cameras are pocket-sized and weigh only a few ounces, making them the perfect go-anywhere camera. Rated from three to more than seven megapixels, they produce quality photos that can be enlarged to 8" X 10" or larger. Most include optical zoom and other features.

    • Canon PowerShot S410, SD200, SD300, SD400 & SD500 Digital ELPH cameras
    • Casio EXILIM EX-S100 and EX-Z50
    • Fujifilm FinePix F410
    • Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 and G600
    • Nikon Coolpix 3700 and S1
    • Olympus Stylus 400 Digital, 500 Digital and Verve
    • Pentax Optio S5i
    • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F88, DSC-L1, DSC-P200, DSC-T1, DSC-T7 and DSC-W1

    Compact digital cameras are slightly larger but will still fit in a loose pocket or purse. Some are very inexpensive and make the perfect entry level camera. Three to seven megapixels and optical zooms are standard, with advanced features on some models.

    • Canon PowerShot A400, A510, A520, S60 and S70
    • Casio EXILIM EX-Z750

    • Olympus Camedia D-540, D-580 and D-595
    • Pentax Optio 30
    • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S60, DSC-W5 and DSC-W7

    Mid-Sized digital cameras are for the true photo enthusiast. They are a cut above the compact digital cameras, but less expensive than digital SLR cameras that professional photographers require. SLR-style TTL, six megapixels or more, image stabilization, super zooms and other advanced features are typical.

    • Canon PowerShot G6, Pro1, S2 IS and S70
    • Casio EXILIM PRO EX-P600 and EX-P700
