You buy the camera that fits your needs (features, what you want to do with it, how it feels in your hand, etc.) and what you can afford.

Also, depends on your budget.

Nguyen,

You are sure to have opened up a hornets' nest with that provocative question. I have owned a number of cameras over the years, Nikon, Canon, Leica, Hasselblad, Minolta and presently have 3 Nikons, a Canon point and shoot and a Leica rangefinder. Some people will have nothing but Canon and others will have Nikon. Many other people have other makes of cameras and lenses and love them. To put it simply all cameras are of excellent quality but they have different features that some people think are more important than a feature another brand of camera does not have. You need to go to a camera store and check out different cameras to see which one feels good in your hand, has the features you like and will take the pictures you want it to do. For an example some of the point and shoot cameras of all brands will not let you take a photo of your children running across the lawn. The camera is not fast enough to catch their movement and your photo will not come out as you want it to. So you choose a camera which will allow you to do that.

I know others will chime in and offer their advice as well and I urge you to pay attention. Some will offer one brand and others will offer another. Remember though that the brand they select will not necessarily be the one you would select.

Dennis

Wow, everyone has their own personal favorites......

To start off with....how much money are you willing to spend, what type of photography do you do most, do you want big and heavy equipment or do you want something as light and portable as possible?

There are lots of camera reviews on the internet.

It really doesn't matter. First, you have to decide what type of camera you want - DSLR, mirrorless, P&S, etc. The brands you mention make excellent cameras. Decide what features you want, and take it from there.

They are all very good, don't forget Panasonic though!
Jerry has given you the best advice so far.

Just from my personal experience, it seems like actual photographers do better camera reviews than people who just classify themselves as "reviewers."

Sites like this one have plenty of info on them. Find other sites from photographers and it might help you decide what seems best for you. http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2012/04/27/more-fun-comparisons-fuji-x-pro-1-vs-olympus-om-d-vs-sony-nex-7-jpeg/

Ok, since no one has come out and told you what to buy, I will :-)

Bridge Camera:
Sony RX100
Panasonic LX7
Olympus Stylus 1

Super Zoom
People here swear by the Canon Sx50

Mirrorless
Olympus EPL5
Olympus OMD EM5
Olympus OMD EM1
Panasonic GX7

DSLR (Crop)
Nikon 7100
Canon 70D

DSLR (Full)
Sony A7
Nikon D610
Nikon D800

Now with the mirrorless and DSLR options, you'll need to find some good glass to go with them.

Point & shoot, dslr, mirrorless, micro 4/3rds? There are all types of cameras at prices from inexpensive to extraordinarily expensive. What do you want to use it for? What is your experience? Do you want to be involved in the photo process or do you want as much automation as possible. And finally what is your budget. Your question was way too broad and vague. There is no general answer to it, although those who favor one or another brand may try to convince there is. If you can give us some additional feedback I'm sure we can assist you.

Nguyen,
There are people here that will tell you to buy what they are using. If you asked me, I'd say the Nikon 7100, a Canon user will tell you to buy that brand, ect.

YOU are the only one who will determine which one your going to use, depending on the use YOU intend to use it.
