Shopping for the Digital Camera of Your Dreams

After years of shunning digital camera technology in favor of film, I recently broke down and bought a new digital SLR camera. As with all of my electronic equipment purchases, I did a lot of super-charged and obsessive research. camerafree.jpgFirst I sat down and figured out how I was going to use the device (people, places, lighting). I spoke with a few professional photographers and regular folk who own digital cameras. I read just about every product review and digital photography site I could find. Then I went into the store and test fired a few. Of course having handled my prospective purchases, I was forced to go back and review all the camera literature I had read to compare my opinions with those of the reviewers. The whole process took several months, and I think I lost weight.

One of the better camera research tools I came across was this handy-dandy questionnaire on www.imaging-resource.com. In my opinion, it does a particularly good job at helping you to narrow down your choices. It’s a bit on the long side, but it’s thorough. It asks everything from price range, to what you want to shoot, to what brands you generally like. It even gets into a good amount of the technical nitty gritty.

I pretty much knew which camera I was going to buy, but this questionnaire helped to confirm my opinion. So if you’re looking to purchase a digital camera, or you simply want to see if the device you’re shooting with is the digital camera of your dreams, check out the questionnaire at the links below.
