Dave Johnson, TechHive:

If you own a smartphone, your digital SLR or compact digital camera probably collects a lot of dust these days; it’s just so much more convenient to snap photos with your phone. Sure, your smartphone isn’t as sophisticated as a DSLR, and it can’t capture nearly the same quality of images. But that’s not always important—what is important is that your phone is always in your pocket when you need it.

And even though your phone doesn’t have the same exposure and image-quality controls as your bigger, better camera, you can learn a few tricks to take photos that rival what you can get with a dedicated digital camera.

Best cameras of 2012

leave a comment »

In case you missed it, it’s not too late to check out (and even probably buy) the dpreview.com selection of the best cameras of 2012 based on a poll of the readers they conducted:

This year was one of the busiest that any of us can remember, and saw serious new products from all the major manufacturers. This was the year of the groundbreaking 36MP Nikon D800, the incredibly ambitious Olympus OM-D as well as an all-new system cameras from Fujifilm, with the innovative X-Pro 1 and X-E1. Sony had an amazingly busy year as well, bringing us the great value SLT A-57 and the feature-packed SLT-A99, along with a host of NEX upgrades. Canon wasn’t idle either, and consolidated its enthusiast-oriented DSLRs with the long-awaited EOS 5D Mark III and, at the end of the year, the EOS 6D. Meanwhile, Pentax revamped its popular K-5 with the new K-5 II and K-5 IIs and introduced its first large-sensor mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the K-01 which was … interesting.

Now, moving forward, I am beginning to wonder what would the best cameras be in 2013. If 2012 is any indication, it looks like we will definitely have something to look forward to!
