Point & Shoot Digital Cameras

Which Point and Shoot Digital Camera to Buy?

Buying a Point and Shoot Digital Camera has become fairly easy. They are all compact enough to take with you anywhere and some are even strong enough to go just about anywhere. The Olympus digital cameras, for example, have a shock proof and water proof case- so the occasional drop or more than occasional drop is nothing to worry about. Plus, you can take it with you swimming or to any event without the fear of losing your camera.

Point and Shoot Optical Zooms

Digital Camera Zoom

For a long time Point and Shoot digital cameras suffered when it came to optical zoom strength. Now Digital Point and Shoot camera consumers should not have to settle for anything less than a 5x optical zoom. Panasonic cameras offer a hefty 12x optical zoom on most of their Point and Shoot Digital Cameras.

Customizable Point and Shoot Digital Cameras

The Digital Camera Consumer of the day hopes to find a camera that expresses who they are and can be customized to do so. Digital camera manufacturers have come out with a rainbow of color options for each camera ensuring that a sale won’t be lost because it doesn’t come in your favorite color.

Which Digital Point and Shoot Camera Brand to Choose?

Canon and Nikon have long ruled the camera business. Olympus and Panasonic are adding features that help draw consumers to their products. A host of other manufacturers try to offer products at a cost so low that they drag away some consumers although their product quality suffers. In choosing which camera to buy it really just comes down to what matters most. For Quality, choose a Canon or Nikon. For durability, choose an Olympus. For a lower cost camera with large zoom, choose a Panasonic.


  1. I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8, & I have found it to be a good beginner’s camera. I can go from automatic settings to priority settings (ex: shutter & aperture priority) as well as on to manual use. I am hoping to upgrade eventually to a DSLR camera, but need more practice. The Lumix does not do well in below freezing temps. That & the fact it isn’t a DSLR are the only drawbacks I’ve noticed. I wish there was a course just for P&S photography.

  2. hello I have Sony Cyber-shot 10 times. I have 16.1 Mega pixels DSC-H70
    I love cameras and plus I love takeing pic on my camera with my famliy.
    ok- when I use my camera with the zoom on it its hard on my camera is that ok when I be useing a zoom on it when i use it.

  3. I just bought a Sony NEX 5r camera…which I really liked in the store. I was on the fence on whether I should buy a Canon model or the Sony. I was assured that I could return the camera within 15 days if I didnt like. So I bought knowing I had an event to attend that I could test the camera to see if it would do what I wanted…IT DID NOT. However, I think it might be operator ignorance…. So my first question: Is the Sony NEX 5r a good camera? How does it compare to the Canon T3i, T5i or other? Next question: Is there a camera / photograpy website for “dummies”? I’ve the user guide that came with the camera…but most of that info is clear as MUD to me….HELP!!

  4. Nikon and Canon are still the most trusted brand in the photography market. Like the canon powershot D20 which can withstand the drop test up to 5 feet and goes underwater up to 33feet and Nikon Coolpix P520 which can zoom up to 42X (Optical!).

  5. You do not even mention Pentax, a great alternative to the very expensive Nikon and Canon but better than Panasonic or Samsung.


  6. I am so glad I found this site!! Thank you for providing all this information for free so I can spend the money on the actual camera rather than all the course! You are the best:)

  7. I’m looking at a Fuji HS10 bridge camera, 10mp, 30x optical zoom – you did not mention Fuji’s. I have 2 Fuji’s currently and this one would be an upgrade (current is a small snapshot camera and the other is a 10mp 12x optical zoom bridge S1000 Finepix with less features than the HS10. What do you think about this Fuji HS10?
