Best 10 Compact Digital Camera that are popular in Japan [Review]


Most compact digital cameras are made by Japanese companies such as Sony, Nikon, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Canon, etc.
In general, Japanese people are slightly finicky when they select and buy compact digital cameras because they have so many options.
Knowing the trends in the Japanese market for a digital camera may help you select but it.

This post explains the recommendation based on the ranking of the compact digital cameras!
I compared cameras by different production makers such as Canon and Nikon by considering waterproof, wide-angle and telephoto functions.
Generally speaking, when the price goes up, the image quality becomes higher and there are more functions.
Let’s purchase a camera by thinking about the scene and situation in which you use.


A variety of compact digital cameras in the Market. What is the comparison point?

There are so many compact digital cameras from various manufacturers.
Most cameras are easy to carry around, and the quality of the image is improving.

There are many people who are troubled by too many types but let’s look at the points to compare the different cameras.


If you want to use it in fields such as the sea, mountains, or outdoors, you can use it with greater emphasis on waterproofness.
Famous models include the Olympus STYLUS TG-870 Tough. Not only waterproof, dustproof and shock resistant, but it is also a very robust camera.

Wide angle

The smaller the focal length (○ mm) is, the wider the angle is. It will be easier to shoot the entire subject even if you shoot the subject nearby.
When you want to shoot a big thing, or when you want to shoot wide scenery, the smaller focal length may be better.

High magnification and telephoto function

The longer the focal length (○ mm), the longer the distance the camera can capture.
For example, if you want to shoot athletes from the distant place, I would recommend cameras with longer focal length with telephoto function.

High resolution

If you want to focus on high quality, first check the size of the image sensor (the part that makes the image with the light coming from the lens). The larger the size, the better the image quality and the higher the price the cameras have.

Is it possible to take a selfie?

Modern compact digital cameras can take a selfie by turning over the screen.
This function is recommended for people who go out to various places alone or those who want to shoot with friends together.

Wifi compatible

With the wifi function, you can immediately transfer photos taken with a compact digital camera to your smartphone. Recommended for people who want to share photos with someone immediately, and those who want to upload to SNS soon
