How to Choose a Digital Camera - Tips

The question I get asked more than any other about Digital Photography is 'How do I choose the right digital camera?' There are so many digital cameras currently on the market with more being introduced weekly (over 120 new ones this year alone so far) - how does one make the decision of which digital camera to choose?

A lot has been written online on this subject. Some take a very technical approach and talk about resolution, file formats and sensors, others talk more about usability and design while others seem to be looking for the latest gadget or feature. There is no one way to approach the decision of which digital camera and so we've decided to list some of the more helpful tutorials and tips that attempt to answer - 'Which digital camera should I choose?'
