With so many options to choose from, deciding the best digital camera is a daunting task. Other than the features and your budget, the intended usage also plays a crucial role in determining the ideal camera.
A point and shoot camera is enough if you intend to pursue photography as a hobby, but if you plan to make a career out of it, a DSLR is a must.
Alongside basic point and shoot models, we now have advanced point and shoot cameras for those who seek that 'DSLR experience' - without having to face the trouble of carrying a bulky DSLR along. Some compact cameras come equipped with an interchangeable lens mount.

Several new digital cameras have been introduced over the last few years. Some of these have given birth to a whole new category in themselves. Not surprisingly, the practice of segregating the existing models into two groups, point and shoot cameras and DSLRs, has now become a thing of the past.
