Some differences of 10-megapixel DSLR Cameras

Thoroughly analyzing characteristics of most 10-megapixel DSLR cameras I’ve concluded that there are some minor differences. First of all they refer to body, comfortable hand grip, bayonet lens mount, user interface and menu. The differences appear according to the company’s policy. Every new Nikon’s camera, for example, takes a lot from its predecessors. Look at the next post: 'Nikon D200, Nikon D80 and Fujifilm S5pro: for Pro, for Amateur and for Artist.' Sony uses the best from Konica Minolta, etc. Whatever all the advertisers and market specialists say, the technical characteristics of them all are practically the same. Several cameras have the same sensor producer. It can take long to describe the advantages of one new processor but its abilities are in figures and terms, which are clear to an engineer. You needn’t analyze them. Changeable lenses, flashes, filters and other devices add extra abilities to a SLR camera. Plus photographer’s talent and abilities!
For comfort I’ve put into a table the main technical characteristics of the cameras, which cost less than $1000. The table will appear in my next post, which also has several notes.
Anyway before choosing and buying a camera I advise you to drop into a photo shop, look around, hold and test all the devices paying attention to the menu. Your personal preferences are not less important than anti-shake when you search a camera. I’ve chosen Sony A100 as I got impressed by its abilities and conveniences. I think that Sony, to appear effectively into the market used its best facilities. The price is suitable. I am quite satisfied with the camera. It’s not bad for me but it is very unpleasant for my cat. He looks like Admiral Nelson because he is a fighter and doesn't like to be a photo model.
