CAMERA BUYER’S CHECKLIST: D-SLRS AND CSCS
BUYER’S CHECK LIST JANUARY/ FEBRUARY 2017
If Santa didn’t bring you what you wanted for Christmas, buy it yourself! Here’s where to start looking for your next new interchangeable-lens camera. Where the camera companies aren’t providing RRPs, we’ve worked out an average ‘street price’ based on what we’ve seen quoted over the last month or so.
THIS CHECKLIST is designed to allow direct comparisons between different camera models, here listed in price order within each brand. The published prices are mostly supplied by the distributors as recommended retail prices ( RRPs). However, some distributors are no longer supplying RRPs to the media so it has become necessary to determine an ‘ estimated street price’ derived from the range of prices for a model published by retailers. Where this has been necessary, the letter ‘ E’ appears at the start of the entry.
A dot appearing in a column indicates that the feature is available on the camera model listed. Where a specification or product detail hasn’t yet been published or confirmed, the letters TBA ( to be announced) or TBC ( to be confirmed) are used. If a feature is irrelevant to a particular model – such as mirror lock- up for compact system cameras – then n/ a ( not applicable) is used. Every effort is made to ensure accuracy; please send any corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org
