Buying Guides

If you are at a crossroads and need some expert advice in making a decision to buy or download something, PetaPixel Guides can point you in the right direction. Our experts break down information you need to know and/or pick the best choices for various use cases across a wide range of product categories, from cameras and lenses to software and websites. While we do often select what we believe is the best choice in each category, we provide a selection of picks that should cover your unique wants and needs.

Below are the guides organized by segment. Each guide may be updated often, so be sure to check back for the latest recommendations. PetaPixel also hands out PetaPixel Awards for the best photography products of the past year.
