2 Nikon

Nikon! Almost all professional photographers use it!

I have a d3000 and I LOVE it. it's beginner friendly but still takes some of the most breathtaking pictures I have ever seen. nikon is top.

Nikon is a professional camera brand unlike sony making cameras for teenagers and for casual photography... But with nikon you can do much more...

This is a good camera brand - trains45

3 Sony Sony Sony Corporation, commonly referred to as Sony, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Kōnan Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

I have a Sony DSC-W350 and it is just awesome... And going forward to buying a DSC-HX9V... Which is a Compact Point & Shoot Camera with Power of a DSLR!

I recommend Sony because it is the best brand if you're considering for a Super Point and Shoot.

Sony Alpha a7 series are awesome... I'll get it... I have used canon and Nikon but picture quality and sharpness is much better in sony as compare to canon and Nikon.

Top 3

1. Sony
2. Canon
3. Nikon

Sony's pixel-quality is like 2 megapixels.
Really bad. - Critideal

I have Sony Alpha a7 - pankajkerketta

4 Olympus

Olympus... IHS TECHNOLOGY good for Lowlight sensitivity, High-Speed Performance, Intelligence Auto, and Super-Resolution Zoom. For me olympus camera is better than to other brand,

I love this camera! Honestly the best one I have ever owned. Perfect for taking self pictures along with far away shots. 26x zoom is amazing.

Panasonic sucks! Olympus rules the photography world! All other brands aren't even close to olympus, except for canon

Fantastic Camera brand - interchangeable compact cameras are the best. The movable screens and detachable flashes are so innovative! !

5 Casio

I have had 2 Exilims. They are quite small. Do an amazing job with detail and color. Flash, people shots are often partly washed out. Maybe it the settings I use.?

Casio is a nut, CasioNut it's very big. Its not casio.

Baad camera in the world - kainatrind

6 Panasonic Panasonic

I have two Lumix cameras and have been amazed at the results I have seen. I use one Point and Shoot for mostly indoor pictures; exhibitions etc. The other larger camera I use for bird and animal photography. I did get some useful advice about initial set-ups which have helped considerably.

Panasonic cameras are the best

I hate this camera, canon is the bomb(and sony. )

Lumix range are all great cameras for all jobs.

7 Pentax

My favorite camera ever was a Pentax.

Pentax offers fewer options than Nikon and Canon, but the options they have will satisfy 95% of photographers, from beginners to pros. They tend to offer a bit more for the same price, compared with the Nikon, Canon or Sony. The cameras and lenses are sturdy and well built. For my larger than average hands, they feel better too, even though they tend to be a bit smaller and lighter than Canon.

Only down sides to the Pentax system for me are:
1) If using 3 or more multiple flash/strobes, they don't synchronize together easily, Nikon flash system is much better, (I wish Pentax would license this from Nikon, pay a royalty, and let me use Nikon flashes).
2) If you want to buy cheap accessories (lens, flash...) Nikon and Canon have more 3rd party support. (But I like the good quality of Pentax, so I seldom by third party).
3) Less stores carry the full line of Pentax, So you may have to purchase on-line if you want a less common lens or accessory.

I've owned Canon, ...more

There's no other brand better than Pentax when it comes to experience, Price and quality, all in one place. Canon and Nikon cost you hundreds of bucks more just for the brand name, The weather sealing on Pentax's entry level DSLR's is even better that of Canon 1D-X and Nikon D4. Pentax won't dodge you by clever marketing tricks. Very reliable camera brand. Others are good too, but Pentax is just in a class of it's own.

I love my Pentax SLR Camera. Very nice, sharp images and Pentax is the only company that I've seen so far that sells colored "Big Pro" cameras. Impressive! Love how they're coming up with a more personalized way of photographing.

9 Kodak

Kodak is good. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

I have seen some really great picture and video quality from the Kodak brand. For their price they deliver very good imaging and video quality. Although the company has gone bankrupt there is a few good models around. Their problem is that they do not promote their products well but they should not be underrated.

Photography is their traditional buissness. so, they purely concentrate on camera's. As compared to SONY, the sony camera's are get you very very sharp pictures. but, Kodak on otherhand gives you the real picture.
Go for KODAK...

I remember their cool underwater camera model. - AlfaRomeoFan

10 Samsung Samsung Samsung is a South Korean multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. Its primary products are apparel, chemicals, consumer electronics, electronic components, medical equipment, semiconductors, ships, telecommunications equipment.

Samsung make crap cameras and do not give a stuff if they have faults. The WB350F was the worst camera I have ever owned.

Samsung makes good phones.

I love samsung because of their technologies and stylish

I have an NX100 and NX1000, LOVE them. They are the best cameras I have ever owned in my life, digital or film. Easy to use, great ways of adapting for a situation in shooting-found there is no all in one digital camera. Also has best response when I push the button of other camera brands I have seen and owned. I had a Nikon D40x. It was good, but, really picky. The focus is actually better with the NX100 than the D40X. Samsung has its good and bad items. I also own a WB50F, quite possibly one of the worst cameras I have ever owned. If I am just going out for a basic day shooting on the nature trail, I prefer my Polaroid 1036 to my WB50F.

The Contenders

11 Polaroid

They released a few I-Zone instant pocket cameras including those that are licensed (Barbie, Girl Tech and American Girl). - monsterhigh200

I got one and it broke almost instantly. - WarioMan

Love it stay classic

a classic

12 Leica

Leica has the best build quality than any other camera brand, so it should be at least at #3 (only because Nikon and Canon have good cameras but are more widely known)

The best camera I've ever owned

Thank you for cooperating with HUAWEI! The P30 tells me you have the best camera lenses!

Come on! This is ranked way too low. It's common knowledge that Leica makes the best lenses ( look at every test in magazines ). It's not cheap ( you really pay for the quality here and not just for the name of the brand like most people think ) but once you own one you will see for sure a difference comparing to other cameras. It's only flaw is like I said before it's price ( especially the lenses ). If you are a serious artist in photography you will get the most out of this camera. A professional will maybe look for a cheaper quality brand ( if he just doing publicity photography for instance ).

14 Fujifilm

A good camera

Making company good features

I love their brand and the joy of taking still photography. They make some of the best APC models.

JPEG images out of a fujifilm X Or GFX series camera are fantastic. Really make photography enjoyable as an experience and have superb image quality.

15 Vivitar

They're cheap and have a decent picture quality

16 Rollei

I like my 35mm camera from them. Good quality built camera, uses Leica lenses. Or at least mine did at the time.

17 GoPro


I use this for waterslides due to the water-proofing and even without water, it is the best 4K camera... if you aren't into water, 4K or 60fps, this isn't a good camera... but I'm part of the niche audience so I'm chill - Maddox121

Best for anything that you need to record

Best for filming under water

Amazing film images! Gives a vintage feel

22 Ricoh

Best camera ever!

I have a RICOH WG-20 (a weather proof model) at 14MP the pictures are fantastic. the model is easy to use, (didn't need a manual) I can trust it's ruggedness it is well built with features that are easy to see and use. I was lucky I found this jem and I mean that for real I actually found it in the trash. I can't believe the good luck it has been. I take photos for the automotive detailing that I do. The before and after pictures I can count on to be constant in the photo the camra get the job done with accuracy.

I'm a Ricoh gr fan
