On phones, for me, Huawei has the best camera quality, because the quality of the picture of it looks like it was taken in a DSLR camera.

Unfortunately, they're lying sir jeffreyjose48. I own a smartphone from Oppo and their camera is just mediocre. They say it's 13MP on paper but actually it's not. Same goes with Vivo. I guess it's only Huawei that is being honest about the camera capture quality of their smartphones.

You're welcome sir. You should. Huawei is a great smartphone brand and they are offering the most advanced smartphone cameras on their phones. I actually heard that Huawei P20 Pro sports a camera that is much better than iPhone because the lenses are made by Leica.

Yes, I agree with you. Huawei has become one of the best smartphones in the world, it's one on the top list for users to buy.

Exactly. Despite the issues about Huawei selling their users' data to the Chinese Government leading the US to ban their products from being sold in that region, Huawei still conquered other giant markets like Asia, India, and other regions because of the quality of their handsets.

People are going on the Sony bandwagon and it really speaks of the quality of their cameras. Canon and Nikon fanatics are switching in a heartbeat to Sony. Sony really has changed the mirrorless camera game with their cameras. Even DSLR users are going mirrorless. I own a Sony mirrorless camera and for casual shots of birthdays, graduations and weddings, it really doesn't disappoint even with the stock lens.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

jaybee19

That's very true. Sony Mirror-less Cameras are the best and they're the trend in photography nowadays. I am actually considering a Sony Mirror-less camera as my first digital camera ever, however it's very expensive here where I live and that leaves me no choice but to opt on a DSLR camera because it's cheaper.

It's much cheaper if you compare it to a DSLR of a similar quality. It really is a quality camera beyond the quality of its photos. The newest model, A6500 is in demand right now. Photography peeps even compare it to $3000 Camera + Lens combos.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

TheArticulate

Sony's making huge leaps in the camera world, which I really respect. The a6500 even has 5-axis in body image stabilization, which is impressive for a camera of its small size. I've been considering getting this model solely to take while I travel.

Honestly, I'd made the switch to Sony if their high end stuff (which would be equivalent to the Panasonic cameras I have now) weren't so expensive. Not to mention the battery life of their cameras is horrendous, which wouldn't bode well for me as a wedding videographer.

Otherwise, they make exceptional stuff.

I'd go for the older models like the a6000. You'd save a lot and most of the units sold by Amazon/B&H are still brand new. Not refurbished which is a great deal. I guess the only difference is the image stabilization and weatherproofing. You're saving half the price doing this method. Sucks they still don't have flippable screen from the back and touchscreen. What is Sony doing???



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

TheArticulate

Well, the cons to purchasing an older model are exactly the reason I wouldn't go for an a6000. As someone who does videography, especially when travelling, the fact that the a6500 has in-body stabilization and can shoot in 4K is a huge factor for me when deciding on a camera.

In terms of ergonomics, I really have no idea what Sony is doing, especially with their screen. My friend has a Sony a7s mkii, which used to be an incredibly expensive camera before the Mkiii came out.. The screen doesn't flip out much and isn't even a touch screen. I helped him film a project a while back and I kept instinctively touching the screen to navigate, and every time it didn't anything I'd ask him, "how much did you pay for this camera?"

It just didn't make any sense to me.

You have to buy a separate mini monitor attachment for all the Sony mirrorless cameras. And believe me those hamper your ability to just chug your camera in your bag. You have to detach every time you want to put it inside your bag (with the wires of course).

To be fair, when it comes to filmmaking, it's best to use an external monitor when shooting regardless of what camera you're using. I have one for my Panasonic GH5 (which also has a swiveling touch screen, take that Sony!)

To be fair to Sony, their screens are so awful that you need to buy an external monitor. If I'm doing photography on it, I'd more apt to use the viewfinder as opposed to the screen anyway.

I didn't know that about videography. I barely use mine to shoot videos. Thanks for the info. I agree that Sony needs to put out better products. Their upgrade cycle of every 6 months is ridiculous. They just want to milk money from consumers.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

jaybee19

That's true. However, I'm afraid my budget is too tight as of the moment because I'm still a student and so buying a cheap DSLR camera is just a stepping stone for me because I believe I still need to practice more with my photography skills. However, I will definitely buy a Sony A6500 or any other high end cameras in the future after saving more money.

I think for me I would recommend the Sony brand of cameras just like the A6000 because they are just small and light which is easy to carry anywhere you go. It has some great lenses that can be adjusted either full auto or full manual and I think in my own opinion it is the number one brand of cameras in the market today.

Sony does have a good line of cameras. I've been looking at an A6300 simply to use for travel photography. I like how lightweight and compact Sony's cameras are, which is a huge plus for me (since my current camera and lenses are pretty bulky)

Yes that is the advantage of having a Sony camera brands because it has a different outlooks in terms of design and its features such as the weight issue could really be an the edge from other brands out there. I would really recommend this brand to everyone who want to have a spectacular experience.

When I went for a survey around my area the remark I go from people around here was that the best camera brand for mobile phone was Samsung mobile for phones and Canon for the digital camera which they told me that it was very expensive due to its quality. But have also seen in most forum that Sony has a great camera feature on both side, which is also testified here.

If you are aiming to become a serious photographer I would recommend Canon DSLR cameras. It is one of the top brand and sure it has an amazing image quality performance. But if you are just a hobby photographer, the camera on mobile phone will be fine. Huawei P20 Pro has great resolution for rear and front camera.

Samsung products are always great and though their cameras are a bit expensive, it is something that you should invest on since they have the best quality. Just go through the internet and research about the current prices of their products before making a final decision on that.

I've never been particularly impressed with Samsung DSLRs or cameras in general. I'm a fairly serious photographer and videographer, and in my community, you never, ever hear anything about Samsung cameras.

To be completely honest, quality-wise, you'd be best going with a Canon or Nikon camera if you're a beginner, or a Sony or Panasonic camera if you're more of a professional and know what you want out of a camera.

I've been using a Nikon since DSLR cameras became the norm and I think Nikon cameras are well built and it also has a reasonable price, cheaper than Canon, Fujifilm, Pentax and it has better quality and specs than Olympus which is my second favorite camera.

If you're just getting into photography, I'd recommend starting with an entry-level kit. A Nikon d3400 or Canon Rebel T5 would be great places to start. They're so expensive as to break the bank, but they'll give you all the features you need to start snagging some nice snapshots.

I would recommend that you save the money make taking photos with your camera and use it to upgrade as time goes on.

I think this is going to be heavily dependent on people's personal preferences, and most people will agree that different characteristics determine what brand is people's favorite.

I gravitate towards Nikon personally, since I have the most experience with Nikon cameras and have always found them fantastic for the type of photography I do.

This is probably the most appropriate answer I've seen so far. As someone who's dabbled in using a variety of cameras, I think it's more about finding the brand that fits your needs and tastes better.

Panasonic cameras offer great video capabilities along with photography.
Nikon and Canon are both staples in photography, and have affordable entry-level cameras.
Sony cameras can be compact, and have incredible low light capabilities (especially good for travel photography)

So yeah, I think it's about finding that brand that fits your needs, and giving some their line a try.

Even better is when you can borrow cameras that belong to family or friends that cover those different brands, to give you the opportunity to try before you buy. It's an expensive investment to go and fork out hundreds of dollars for a good camera, but then it not to produce the results you want. Being able to really test something out and get a feel for it is helpful in my opinion.

Which brings up a good resource: camera rentals. If one's friends, family or acquaintances don't have a means of loaning a camera, Lens Pro To Go is a really affordable way to rent gear and give it a test run. They have most every camera brand under the sun, and tons of accessories (such as lenses) to boot!

I use them regularly to rent gear for video shoots. Their stuff arrives in a timely manner, and I have yet to have any issues with their product, or their business.

A good camera is only due to proper care and maintenance. Taking pictures is also an art one has to develop. Nobody can take good pictures unless he learns how to.

I am no expert on this, and I'm not a picture lover. It only interests me if I have them printed on my hand or is hanging on a wall. But I'd say Canon, Nikon, and Sony. Any of these three will do, and the picture quality for all of them are almost the same. Nikon and Canon have a wide range of lenses to choose from, and Sony (mirrorless) is bringing each year new lenses to catch Canon and Nikon.

I have always thought that Nikon was a very reliable brand. I checked an official Top Ten List published by a reliable source and 2 Nikon cameras were on that list. But they are very expensive.

The list you saw for cameras was probably including Nikon's top-of-the-line models, most likely for use by prosumers or professionals. It's always good to keep in mind that all the big names in cameras, like Nikon, Canon and Sony, have high end products meant for professionals, and low-end entry level products meant for people who are getting into the field. These option will always be more affordable.

Canon and Sony are the excellent in terms of capabilities, functions, and cost. I personally like Canon due to their capabilities, in addition to the satisfactory. but, they're taking their time rolling out 4K video. As a former Nikon consumer, I do not believe it is a very good brand except you purchase into their professional merchandise. Their client and beginner lenses and censors have questionable quality as compared to that of Canon or Sony.

It's a real shame that Canon isn't rolling out new features as quickly or effectively as other brands. I started with Canon cameras because between them and Nikon, Canon had the best video capabilities for someone just getting into video and photography.

As time has gone on, companies like Panasonic and Sony have pumped out cameras that absolutely murder Canon's line of DSLRs, which makes it unreasonable for anybody who's video-interested to consider their stuff unless looking at their C-series of cameras (which are stupid expensive).

Not everyone needs 4K capabilities on their camera, even though it's a nice perk to have. But if you're looking to go into photography hardcore, I'd certainly recommend Canon's higher end products like the 5D MkIV and 1Dx, but otherwise, other brands will get you much better "bang for your buck".

I think iPhones still have the best cameras. Many people would argue that Samsung's cameraphones are better, but as an owner of a Samsung phone, I beg to differ. My friends with iPhones take photos with way better quality.

Oppo is also quite popular in my country, and their main selling point is the quality of their cameras. True enough, Oppo cameraphones take high-definition photos that come close to those of iPhones. However, the keyword here is "come close", and moreover, their advantages end after that. Apart from the camera quality, Oppo doesn't really have much to boast about. I wouldn't consider it a good investment for a cameraphone.

Sony, Nikon and Canon have the best cameras in my opinion. I have personally used all the three brands and I am impressed by all the three. Canon and Nikon are slightly better than Sony. They provide a variety of options and are super cool to click pics and videos. It all depends on what you want to do though. For a film, you need the best one. However, for functions and trips you can choose a budget friendly piece.

If you're asking about a DSLR you can either choose from Canon or Nikon, I've tried both cameras because my brother owns a Nikon and my dad owns a Canon. I myself own an Olympus which isn't that bad for me because I only use it to take family vacation photos. But if you're looking for the best quality camera for a possible future career in photography , then Canon or Nikon!

For me the best brand that have the bets camera is Oppo. My boyfriend has an Oppo phone and I am very impressed by the quality of the photos it provides. They also comes with different built-in filters, so that you don't have to download an application for filters. But if you want a high end camera that can give you such photos with the best quality, you can go with Canon DSLR. Surely, you can create amazing photos with the help that camera but it will cost you a larger amount of money.
