How to evaluate camera in a store
Nov 23, 2012

What should I look for I when I am evaluating a camera in store?

i will pick them up see how they feel, perhaps snap a few pictures etc.

should I try to read the manuals? It might be tough to go through the entire manual of fairly complex cameras like Nikon d7000, canon eos 7d and Sony slt-a77 before visiting the store.

i don't want sales person bias or  let my lack of familiarity with the cameras lead to a bad decision.

are there any tips you pros can share?
