One of my best friends needs a new camera. He hesitated to ask me for advice, since I like to carry a 7lb bag full of a giant camera, lenses, a mini tripod and cleaning supplies. He wants one that will fit in his pocket. I totally understand. DSLRs are not for everyone and are certainly not always convenient.
I told him there are a lot of really fantastic options these days and more reviews than he could ever read. There are also numerous guides that walk you through the thought process. This fact was overwhelming to him, as I expect it is to many of you. So let’s collaborate to help each other, and my friend, out.
If you’re looking to buy a new camera, tell us what you’re looking for and what models you’re contemplating.
If you’ve just recently made a purchase, tell us what review sources you trust and what model you decided on.
Your comments will help simplify a time-intensive process for many readers.
