Canon is one of the best. But remember, resolution (in megapixels) doesn't indicate image quality – it only indicates size. So you really have to look at reviews (professional and otherwise) to get an idea if they are any good.

There's much better places for camera reviews, I'm sure. They are pretty much a generic "we do everything" kind of place from what little I've seen, whereas I'm sure you could find a dedicated camera review site if you looked – which would be far more useful.

I guess it depends if its an old camera or new one people are trying to review. If this link still doesnt help , all I could really advise is to google it.

In terms of value for money, the panisonic lumix cameras are the best by far IMO.
Here is one that I own:
