The Best Digital Camera of the Year 2010

List: Posted: 12/10/10

If you are looking to buy a digital camera, you likely want to find the best model available on the current market.  After all, upgrading every year can be frustrating.  When trying to find the best camera, first consider what uses you will have for it.  In other words, the best digital camera for underwater photos or outdoor photos might not be the best model for budget reasons alone.  Today, we will take a look at the best overall digital camera for 2010.

 

The Pentax X90 is (according to many reviewers) one of the the best consumer digital cameras on the market today.  This camera is incredibly lightweight and costs an average of about four hundred dollars, though it can be found cheaper online and by purchasing a gently used model.  Users love the fact that the camera is incredibly small and lightweight without being cheap or lacking in features. This camera has a super zoom feature, a large LCD screen, and even the capability to shoot videos in high definition.  These qualities certainly appeal to many people, and they are not all that the digital camera has to offer.  It also has a remarkable battery life and the capability to adjust flash according to lighting near the subject area. Overall, the X90 is a fantastic camera.  The biggest issue is that the LCD screen is slightly smaller than on pricier models, but since it still measures an impressive 2.7 inches, this issue is hardly substantial, which is why the X90 may well be the best digital camera of 2010.

 

The Canon 50D is lauded by many as the best pro-sumer (professional) camera in the 2010 canon range.  Simple enough for a hobbyist to use, yet packed with enough features to keep a pro shooter smiling, the 50D packs a whopping 15.1 mega-pixel CMOS sensor, and truly impressive ISO capabilities up to 12,800 for low light shooting (meaning you can take great pictures in the dark without a flash).  If you own the flagship model Canon 10D, a big reason to upgrade to the 50D is the 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor on the back, meaning that sorting your pictures in-camera is a breeze.  One downside (to many pros) is the choice of a plastic body over the more sturdy metal body of the 10D. The camera is solid in the hand but feels disappointingly lightweight for its price tag of around a thousand dollars - for the body only.  Lenses are extra.  Check out Canon's website if you're interested in buying one of these bad boys, as you can frequently get rebates of up to four hundred dollars for combining your order with another purchase such as a printer or lens (just a tip!)
