Default Best Overall Digital Camera Manufacturer

Based on all of the digital cameras you have owned or tried, if you had to make a choice, which one (brand) would you rate the highest in overall picture quality/features/improvements with each model?

In other words, what is your favorite brand of digital camera? The brand you trust. The one you will stick with?

I've experienced Fuji and Oly. I think Fuji stand out for me being very innovative and Oly for their big zooms whilst being reasonably priced.

Both makes have been reliable well made cameras.

I own Olympus, and have tried the Nikon Coolpix 995 and Sony Mavica FD-73 cameras. Of these three, mine takes the sharpest and most properly exposed pictures, doesn't wash out flash photos, and has less chromatic aberration than the other two. For the above reasons, I prefer Olympus.

As far as features, the Olympus and Nikon are better. For improvements, I think all three manufacturers are leaning more towards features and reduced cost than improved picture quality. For example, IMHO the Olympus 720 has more CA than the C-2100, and doesn't come with some of the accessories included with the C-2100.

You can't really say best, because some manufacturers have crappy low-end pocket cameras, and excellent high-end dSLRs. It's like comparing car manufacturers, taking GM for example, do you judge them on their low-end Cavilier, or the high-end Cadillac STS?
