Many people ask me about cameras but they are interested in point and shoot cameras. Here is a great list I found online. Thanks, M
Whether you prefer your camera to go unnoticeable or choose to travel light, a camera’s size and weight are an important decision for any photographer. The new point and shoot cameras we are showcasing offer superb picture quality, outstanding responsiveness, and produce stunning images comparable to many DSLRs on the market today. Our top 10 point shoot cameras for 2010offer a wide range of features from high megapixel counts, excellent image resolution, and affordable prices. If camera styling is important to you, most of these camera models come in a variety of colors as well.
Personally, I went to a point and shoot a couple of years ago for all my street and travel photography. While I would never part with my DSLR, here are 3 great reasons to consider adding one of these compact cameras to your photo bag…
- Ease of use – Street photography can be an awkward endeavor, even for the most seasoned professional. Being able take “grab shots” with one hand, or capture images quickly made me a convert to these compact wonders.
- Affordability – While you can spend quite a sum of money on one, most point and shoot cameras can be had for well less than $500….some of the most popular models range from $200-$300. At these prices, I am not overly concerned with damaging them. I can’t tell you how many great images I missed while traveling without my DSLR for this very reason.
- Picture Quality– Point and Shoot cameras now offer maximum resolution exceeding 12 megapixels. I rarely shoot at maximum resolution, but it’s nice to know it’s there if needed. It doesn’t seem that long ago when the company I worked for “went digital” and purchased several Kodak DCS 420’s, at a price tag over $10k for a 1.5 megapixel camera!
