Recent product introductions like Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus with two lenses, a Hasselblad camera add-on to the Motorolo Moto Z, and a Huawei’s partnership with Leica might lead you to believe that all of the interesting developments in photography are focused on smartphone photography. You’d be wrong.

There are many good reasons to use a traditional camera or camcorder instead of your smartphone. Zoom lenses get you much closer to the action without degrading images. Larger sensors capture sharper images and more detail and provide greater light sensitivity for shooting in low-light situations. Interchangeable lenses and other accessories outfit your rig just the way you need for the situation.

In this month’s PCMag Readers’ Choice Survey, we asked you to tell us about the camera and camcorders that you currently use. As always, we wanted to know how satisfied you are with various aspects of the camera’s use: are you satisfied with the camera overall? Is the device reliable? Is it easy to set up and use? How satisfied are you with the device for taking photos? Shooting videos? Would you recommend the brand of camera or camcorder to someone else?

We found tremendous parity among the top companies this year. Their customers are generally very satisfied, although different companies excel in different areas. Still, none of these manufacturers can rest on their laurels.
