If you're thinking of buying a new digital camera, there are plenty of digital camera deals! It's a good idea to compare digital cameras and brands before you choose one though. It's important to first ask yourself specifically what you'll be using the camera for and what type of photography you will be doing. Also keep in mind that megapixels are not as important as they are hyped up to be. Currently, most cameras have at least five megapixels. If you are only going to be printing your shots at a normal size, then anything over four megapixels is fine. You don't need to pay extra for many more megapixels. Pocket-sized digital cameras are the most popular type. They have metal bodies and are pretty stylish. They're pretty straightforward when it comes to features and ease of use, they are basically point-and-shoot cameras. Super zoom and extra zoom cameras are most useful to an advanced or professional photographer. Then there are waterproof and tough digital cameras, which can be handy on holidays.
Some of the highest-performance digital cameras of 2010 were the Fujifilm F70 EXR, the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5, the Panasonic DMC-FT2 (for toughness), the Canon Powershot G11 (for pro controls), the Canon Powershot D10 (for underwater shots) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS7 for a cheap digital camera.
