Nikon Canon Fuji Leica Sony or Olympus… Don’t ask.

Which is better….. In the old days the camera body make and model didn’t make a difference. If you were talking apples to apples (say 35mm film) the camera body only opened and closed the shutter at the set speed. Features aside the “better one” depended on the lens and that was subjective.

Now with the digital camera body, you have to compare sensors. So which camera is better? I would say the one with the largest, highest rated sensor, that also has the features you want, and you are willing to carry and also the has the glass you want and that you can afford. All that said it takes research and some trial and error to know what is right for you. You can’t go by what might be right for somebody else.

Exactly right, there isn't one good answer to the question, "What's the best camera for me?" You might be a snap shot shooter who only takes one photo a week or you might be a pro with a fully stocked studio, there's too many in between for one good answer.....Accept Nikon's the best LOL.

I always thought the one in your hand was best.

It made just as much difference in the old days as it does now, it was-and is always a good thing to buy a quality unit, as it does with everything ( outside of photography as well)!

I never asked such a question even before I bought my first camera in 1977. I see a lot of those questions and I know that many of the people who asked wanted answer but really only they themselves can answer such a question.

Nearly every newer digital photographic device - including phones, go-pros, drones etc are capable of taking excellent pictures under 'normal' conditions these days. It is only when you need high ISO, shallow DoF, large prints, high frame rate etc that different cameras, sensors, lenses etc become important. Unfortunately, no system comes with a Composition button. Composition and subject matter has to be provided by the photographer. That is why we all seem to agree 'its not the camera - its the photographer.'

you didnt have iPhone on your list.
It is the best.
As the saying goes, the best phone is the one you have with you.

This is an absurd topic.
Why didnt you simply pose the question .... what is the best camera available anywhere in the world?
