Digital camera reviews proliferate not just online but also in daily newspapers, magazines and television. You've probably noticed that most of these reviews have nothing but praise for the particular camera they "happen" to be reviewing, and that's why it's easy to get confused about which camera to buy for yourself or as a gift. One thing you should remember when searching for digital camera reviews: be wary of press releases or reviews that are directly sponsored by the manufacturer or written by its advertising arm. But why not trust these reviews? Doesn't the manufacturer know their own product best? Yes, they do, and there's the rub. These reviews mainly offer just the good points about their products and leave out the flaws. Not too surprising, right? If a manufacturer sells their own line of digital cameras, they obviously want to boost their sales. So they naturally release favorable reviews about the products. Of course you wouldn't expect them to highlight the shortcomings or technical glitches of their products in a review, because that would not be favorable for sales. So press releases or digital camera reviews from a manufacturer are almost always self-serving half-truths. You may have had similar experiences with these type of reviews yourself. It's not limited to just photography equipment. Remember that slicer-dicer thingy that you bought over the internet that said it would make it stupid simple to prepare professional-quality gourmet meals, but ended up making a big mess on the kitchen floor instead? So remember that these "reviews" are usually thinly veiled press releases, meaning that they are aimed to get people to buy the product or to give the product a better image. Another product endorsement arena that you can never fully trust are the home shopping networks and related advertisements. Similar to press releases, they likewise sing the praises about their product lines. Much of the information can be useful, but it's what they don't tell you that leaves you at a disadvantage. If, in spite of what you now know about these "reviews", you still choose to base your purchase decision on their claims, and get the product based on their favorable comments, be prepared for the possibility of having to return it after finding out for yourself that it doesn't work as advertised. When you factor in the time and effort that you've wasted, choosing to listen to a slanted digital camera review, and buying the product based on the review without further research on your part, it turns out not being as great a shortcut as you may have originally thought.


The best digital camera reviews are usually those found in specialty magazines (online and in technical magazines), such as Consumer Reports© or Popular Photography©, for example, special websites catering to geeks and shutterbugs, and unaffiliated digital camera review sites. Why? Because these reviews are less likely to be biased since the main goal is not to generate a quick sale. Most of these independent reviewers and critics are not afraid to list the good as well as the bad points of a particular digital camera, assuming they do not have a financial incentive to write a favorable review. These better-quality digital camera reviews usually do a good job explaining the differences between the models that a certain manufacturer has released and how it performs relative to previous versions or when compared to different manufacturer's units. These reviewers and critics are usually professional photographers or highly skilled amateurs, so it's highly likely that they know what they are talking about when it comes to reviewing digital cameras. Most of the time, these reviews are based on actual firsthand experience with the product itself and not just the work of some advertising copywriter cranking out flowery words to capture you and your wallet. Another good source for a digital camera reviews is one that is written by ordinary users such as yourself! You could blog about your experiences with a particular model of digital camera, for instance. Of course, you first need to buy your own digital camera, try it out and compare its features and functionality with its advertised claims. You could also display actual photos you have taken with it on your blog in digital form. Be careful to read the specs, options and features before you buy so that you will get a unit that meets your own needs. Pay special attention to terms that are often misunderstood by amateurs, such as weatherproof, meaning that they are splash resistant only. Waterproof, which you might think means submersible, usually means water-resistant. You don't want to take your newly bought weatherproof or waterproof digital camera with you into a swimming pool, just to prove to yourself that the claim is true, only to find out you have ruined it. Ouch! After purchasing and using your new digital camera under actual operating conditions, you can write your own digital camera review or reviews. The amount of detail in your review will depend on what you've learned about the pros and cons of your particular digital camera. Be sure to indicate that your review is based on actual experience with the product and not just some regurgitated secondhand information. Again, photos taken with the camera will give an air of credibility to your review as well. Finding the most unbiased digital camera reviews you can trust isn't always easy, but it's worth the effort. It can save you time and money in the long run and avoid the hassles of having to return a camera that wasn't what you thought it was, based on a flawed "review". A high-quality digital camera is a valuable piece of technology that can be used for many years to come, so it's important to carefully research before you buy. But don't hesitate to return a camera if it still does not meet your standards in spite of your careful research. Most manufacturers will cheerfully accept a return with few questions asked.
