I guess I would be an amateur when it comes to photography. However I would want the camera to fit in my carry on, so I don't want no additional lens. I currently have the Olympus SZ-14. Is there any you would recommend? Sony? Nikon? Canon? Any models you suggest would be greatly appreciated!

  • Is my camera broken?

    I have a canon 70d that I recently bought and when I take pictures I shoot at 1/250th of a second and the aperture at 1.8 and the iso is at 100 but the pictures come out really white. Is there something wrong with my camera because the only way to get normal pictures is to shoot at 1/4000th of a second

  • What camera (dslr)could i use for astro photography with my Celestron Astromaster 130 telescope?'?

    Best answer: The simplest would be a compact point-and-shoot camera. Take off the eyepiece of your telescope and shoot the lens of the camera in its place. If you go the dSLR route, you'll have to get a telescope adaptor for your camera's mount. The best place to get that is at the store where you bought your telescope... show more

    If you go the dSLR route, you'll have to get a telescope adaptor for your camera's mount. The best place to get that is at the store where you bought your telescope from. The most common one comes with a T-mount which essentially makes the telescope your camera's lens.

  • What to look for in picking a good point-and-shoot camera?

    I am looking at several cameras that are pretty similiar in price and are by different brands. I am not too knowledgeable on cameras so I need some help knowing which one would be best. They all have the same sensor size, but differ in other areas. What do I look for in determining which will take better photos?... show more

They all have the same sensor size, but differ in other areas. What do I look for in determining which will take better photos? And what features are important to have, and which are not? For example, I read that the amount of pixels is not a good indicator in how good your photos will be.

  • What are some good lenses to get with a Nikon D3400 camera?

    Best answer: The 18-55 is always the best first lens. It covers the most used focal lengths.
    Then a 55-200 is a good second lens. A wide angle zoom. Or some wide primes or a 50mm prime.

  • Confused choosing a camera between Nikon D7200, D7000 or a mirrorless camera?

    Best answer: Between the D7000 and D7200, get the D7200. The D7000 has focusing issues. Between a DSLR and a mirrorless, that's up to you. I don't like mirrorless due to the battery life.

    Best answer: Here's a link to dpreview's "studio comparison tool" that allows you to compare image quality of various cameras and also compare ISO performance. While the L340 and P530 aren't available options, there are many other Nikon bridge cameras that equal to or better than these two cameras.

    Personally, I would never recommend a super-zoom bridge camera like these to anyone who was concerned with image quality. While they look like mini DSLRs, or at least advanced cameras, they are nothing more than point-and-shoot cameras with a ridiculously super-long zoom range that you'll never use more than a few time to take a photo of the Moon. The longer the zoom range, the lower the optical quality - it's all a compromise. So why get a camera with lower image quality just so that you can have a 30x, 60x or 90x zoom that you'll never use more than a few times?

    Since you care about image quality, these are not the cameras for you. Instead, go with a mirrorless Sony Alpha, Panasonic or Fujifilm camera, or a DSLR from either Canon or Pentax. I'd skip Nikon D3xxx series of DSLRs, so if you want a Nikon, start with a D5xxx or D7xxx series instead since the D3xxx doesn't have an AF motor which limits which lenses you can use. All of these mirrorless and DSLR cameras have much larger sensors that are almost 13x larger than the sensors in the L340 and P530. Here's a link showing you the difference: https://www.digicamdb.com/compare/nikon_...

    You don't mention what you want to do with your camera. If you're getting it just to take photos of athletes on the field while you're in the stands, or take Moon shots, then these are probably a decent option. But for everything else, they are just not good enough. Not picking on Nikon here, even the equivalent models from Canon are really not worth considering if you're concerned with image quality. It's basically because of the super-small sensor and the poor optical quality of the super-zoom lens.

    If you want to get a small camera, then consider buying a used Canon Powershot G series. These cameras usually sell or sold new for more than $500 and can now be found on eBay or keh.com for around $100-$200.
