Se você está pensando em comprar uma câmera fotográfica, vai aqui um site bem completinho para fazer pesquisas sobre recursos, especificações, etc — em inglês. Chama-se Digital Photography Review. Como disse, ele é bem completo, ou seja, você pode se perder um pouco entre câmeras, acessórios, softwares… Tente o dispositivo de busca, se você sabe exatamente qual máquina quer. Ou o Câmera Database, para procurar pela marca. Um recurso bem útil mesmo é o Buying Guide, no qual você pode mostrar as especificações que quer —ele mostra quais câmeras as têm— ou fazer uma comparação side-by-side com alguns modelos.
