I'm thinkin' the highest rated mid-range digital camera might be the Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ5.
The ratings I'm referring to are from those who have actually purchased and used the camera on a day-to-day basis.
I value the input of users like me and you. OK, I value the camera geeks' ratings too, but they are not every day users who have trouble figuring out how to change settings away from total camera control to, let's say, a higher Aperture. Don't know what an Aperture is? See, that's what I'm talkin' about.
So, I look at the user ratings at places like Amazon, B&H Photo, and DPReview to see what the real users think of a camera. If there are no ratings, I pretty much steer clear of that product. Or, if there are a bunch of folks who didn't like the way the camera handled, I might think twice about making the purchase.
But the Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ5.. practically everyone who ordered it (and took time to post a review) LOVED it!
And, I'm just gonna throw in my personal favorite here. It's the Canon Powershot SX110 IS.
Research shows that the family that takes pictures of each other while enjoying fun activities stays together. (I just made that up, but it must be true.)
I have been finding out so much about digital cameras of late, that I'm compiling all this information on a new web site: digital-photographic-resources.com. It has a nice ring to it, huh? Hope you stop by.
