If you’re in the market for a new camera, Flickr has a great tool to help you decide what to dent your credit card with. They’ve introduced a section called the Camera Finder that allows you to browse all the photos on the site–or at least those with intact EXIF data identifying the camera–by the camera they were taken with. So, if you have your eyes on a new camera, check out what other owners have done with it. I imagine this won’t work very well for brand-spanking-new models, but cameras that have been in the market for a while ought to have an ample supply of images. And within the camera model’s page, you can also view groupings of photos by style such as landscape, macro, portrait, etc.
If you want to see what others have done with camera models I own (or have owned), check out:
Yeah, yeah, you all know I’m a Canon snob when it comes to digicams.
Normally, I use “Save for Web” in Photoshop when prepping my images for uploading, but I should probably start using “Save As…” instead because I believe it will leave the EXIF data instead of discarding it like “Save for Web” does.
