    I have finally decided to buy a digital camera. But before I buy I have
    to do a little research, I just hope I can restrain myself from
    spending the next year working on it. I will start with asking this
    group a basic question:

    Which brand (or brands) is considered the best when considering
    features, performance, usability and reliability?

  3. It depends on what your needs are. I have purchased Nikon and Panasonic
    and been very pleased with them. The Panasonic had better image quality
    than the Canon in the class of camera I wanted, and the Canon had rather
    too many gimmicks for my liking. Personally, I would avoid lesser known
    brands.

    People may be able to advise better if you say what you intend to use the
    camera for.

    If you haven't already discovered DP Review, it's worth a look:

    Actually Industry stats say Kodak is the top selling brand, yet you won't
    see one on the shelves of the store I'm at!

  10. For taking what kind of pictures? How much experience do you have
    using photographic equipment? How much do you want to spend? How
    much do you want to learn?

  14. By how much surprises they pack into a camera I would go with a Pentax.
    The lenses are fantastic for their price. The only problem is that they
    only do two (or three?) SLR Digitals. The rest are compact or 35mm.

    I don't know that there is a BEST digital camera. I've got a Fuji
    and a Canon and I'm satisfied with both of them. You first need to
    decide what features you are looking for, and narrow the choice to a
    few. Then you have the tough choice to make.

    I love Canon as it lets you set to full manual even for the point and shoot
    models (A95 in my case). I also own a EOS 350D and it is really good for low
    light shooting compared to some other well known brands.
