The Internet can be a very helpful and even rewarding location for researching products before making purchases.
Users find all kinds of information about products like digital cameras online. Information range from leaks, product details or price comparison sites that ensure that you don't pay too much for an item to reviews of digital cameras and photos taken with cameras you are interested in that you can look at.
The Snapsort portal is another resource that can be used before purchasing a digital camera as it provides you with options to compare different camera models with each other.
The latest version of the site offers several starting points. You can select a popular recommendation, e.g. for video, beginner dslr or professional use, get Snapsort to display lists of camera models based on price and type, or use the compare feature to compare one camera model with another.
The comparison can be especially useful if you have narrowed down the selection to a handful of camera models.
Simply select two models that you want to compare, or start by opening several of the popular comparisons displayed by Snapsort.
The comparison page is divided into several tabs. The high level comparison tab is loaded first which displays name of each camera, the reasons to buy the model, test shots done with the cameras, and competitors.
You may switch to the details tab which highlights the advantages of each camera of the comparison, and a recommendation.
The specifications tab displays -- mostly -- technical information, like the type of sensor used, the camera's native resolution, or format support.
The information are very helpful in determining the most suitable camera for certain tasks.
Another interesting service provided by Snapshot is the filtering system that it provides you with. You can display a list of cameras, and narrow it down by making certain selections using filters. For instance, you may select the 4K/UHD filter to make sure the camera can capture 4K or UHD video, or the high capacity filter under storage to make sure it supports high capacity storage cards.
From there you can always check out a camera model in detail, or run comparisons with other camera models on that list.
Snapsort can be used for quick comparisons but users need to perform additional research to find the best digital camera. It is a great idea which could really thrive if the developer's would add those missing features.
