Best brand digital camera?

I would say the camera that allows you to take the pictures you want. For some it would be a Sinar (at $40,000 not many will buy these at first), for others a shockproof Panasonic. I like Nikon cameras but cannot defend the expense of their best DSLR.
I would say Canon is the best type but Sony, Panasonic, ECT are good to. It depends what features your looking for. If you are looking for a camera that makes pictures not shaky then I would recommend Canon because their cameras also have 3 times optical zoom. But for zoom I would recommend Panasonic they have amazing zoom! For power I would recommend Sony. I love Canon the best because they tend to have all these just not as great.
