    Default Which camera should I buy FAQ (Please read before posting)

    Which camera should I buy?

    This short questionnaire will help the rest of us make good camera recommendations for you. Please answer each question carefully and succinctly.

    The questions marked with a * are the most important.

    Budget

    * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? Please be as specific as possible.

    Size

    * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you?

    Features

    How many megapixels will suffice for you?

    * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x)

    * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10)

    Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)?

    General Usage

    * What will you generally use the camera for?

    * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not?

    Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos?

    Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos?

    Miscellaneous

    Are there particular brands you like or hate?

    Are there particular models you already have in mind?

    (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD)
