Thread Name: BS: Digital cameras?
Subject: RE: BS: Digital cameras?
By coincidence, I just received today a new issue of PC Magazine, with a cover article on "15 Digital Cameras, 15 new models reviewed" and a subtitle "3, 4, 5, megapixels - how much do you need.

I am not into digital photog, and have not looked at the mag yet, but they do usually give test results and (unlike many) full accounts of their test methods and criteria.

A quick look showed results are up at http://www.pcmagazine.com/.

I have found these guys to be a good source, although you have to keep in mind that what they test is the "latest and greatest that marketeers submit" - usually in response to their request for test articles.

The site is not particularly easy to navigate - and it is much easier if you go through their relatively painless "register and join." (I've been registered for several years, and do not get junk mail from them.)

There have been a number of earlier articles, testing and comparing what will now be "cheaper models," and some of the earlier reviews may still be accessible, although I haven't dug into that.
