Digital cameras like the Canon EOS 6D and Nikon D5s use a form of optical image stabilization, or OIS, which makes them extremely accurate.
But OIS can also give the appearance of motion blur, and some digital cameras can be fooled into taking blurry photos.
But the best camera for capturing digital imagery is the one that’s built to last.
The best digital cameras for digital photography We tested five digital cameras from various manufacturers: Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, and Olympus.
Our list included all camera models from 2012 to 2017, and each has been reviewed on camera.com.

We rated each camera’s image quality and noise-cancellation capabilities, focusing on the image stabilization as an important factor.
The results are below.
The Best Digital Cameras for Digital Photography Best digital camera for digital image stabilization Optical image stabilization for digital cameras Aesthetics Aesthetically, the Canon 6D was the most appealing.
The camera was available in two versions: Canon E, a $1,799-plus model with built-in optical image stabilizer; and Canon S, a cheaper model with no optical image control.
We tested the Canon S for this story, and we found that the Canon OIS stabilized the photos beautifully, even when using the same shutter speed as the Nikon D7000, which has a similar sensor and OIS.
It took only three or four exposures, which was fine, and the photos were crisp and detailed.
Canon’s camera also had an impressive range of features.
Its two-megapixel front-facing camera recorded high-quality video, while the 5.1-megabit-per-second video output was capable of delivering high-definition video in 720p or 1080p.
Canon also included an infrared sensor for night vision, and a built-into flash, and an optional night-vision camera.
If you prefer the camera with no OIS and a separate camera, you can get the Canon 5D Mark III with the same sensor and flash and the same range of night-time capabilities.
Both cameras also had good battery life, though we found the 5DMark III’s battery lasted less time to capture a frame than the Canon.
Its image stabilization was also good, and you can adjust the OIS settings in the camera menu.
The Canon S has a much higher price tag than the 6D, and it has no optical OIS at all.
But if you like the image quality of the Canon, it might be the camera for you.
Noise-cancelance features Optical image cancellation noise-causing algorithms help minimize noise.
In a way, they’re like noise-reduction software.
But for noise reduction, they work more like noise control software.
This can be helpful if you want to get rid of unwanted noise in your photos.
Optical image canceling technology Canon’s optical image cancellation algorithms work with both the lens and the sensor, and can work together to minimize the amount of noise in the image, too.
But it’s best to use them with the camera’s lens alone.
The optical image cancelling algorithms can reduce the amount noise you see by a factor of two or three, and they can also help reduce noise that comes from the camera lens itself.
That can make it easier to remove noise that might be unwanted, such as the bokeh in your photo.
Lens noise reduction The lens is the other major part of the image sensor, but optical image correction can reduce noise in lens elements as well.
Optical lens noise reduction is a technique that can help reduce the number of pixels in a lens.
Lens makers have been able to reduce lens noise with lenses in the past.
We’re talking about improvements that can shave hundreds of megapixels off of the original lens image.
Canon used its own software to create the optical lens noise correction algorithms, which are built into the lens itself and are also included in the Canon lens.
The software lets the user select the lens, and then calibrate it to achieve the best image quality possible.
Optical correction also has a built in noise-free mode that can be turned on or off, and noise reduction can be set to low or high, depending on the sensor and the lens.
Canon built in a noise-calibrating feature in the lens that can reduce lens blur when the image is overexposed.
We found that this was useful for situations where there is too much background noise.
We also tested the lens for the noise-blocking noise reduction feature.
The noise-blurring technology also allows users to make adjustments to the lens without removing the lens altogether.
We didn’t find any optical noise reduction in our tests with the Canon camera.
We were happy with the lens noise-control software, but the software still didn’t do enough to reduce the overall noise in our images.
