    I would go with a Canon APS-C for long distance because of its bigger crop factor than a Nikon. The infographic seems terribly outdated, there are tens of better zoom compacts than the Lumix FZ10(which is a 2003 model) like Powershot SX30/Nikon P500/Lumix FZ100. I was also wondering if Flash photography needs a separate category. I also found missing best compact/dslr/EVIL camera which offers solid HD video recording capabilities.

    This is ridiculous! For example, the final recommended camera, the Powershot G1 is next to a picture illustrating its perfection for flash photography. Yet if you go to Flickr, you can find that the photo by nickb_rock is taken with, wait for it, a Nikon D3s (!), fitted with a Zeiss lens and an SB900 flash with pocket triggers – in otherwords, about £4500 worth of kit.

    And I’ll bet this doesn’t get through the editors!
