The site, which compiles and sorts the reviews and blog posts of more than 750 professional shooters, hobbyists, and photography web sites, doesn't make you do any sorting, sifting, or weighing of whose opinions matter more. You check off boxes to indicate what you like to photograph, choose a size (fits in jacket, pants, or doesn't matter), and then slide to a price limit.
The results are a nicely streamlined selection of reviews and buyer information, topped off with a specific camera BestInClass sees as your best bet. The sites uses a "fancy algorithm developed over two years" to pick out which make and model fits what you picked as your typical uses, then ranks the rest on the same criteria. You get review outtakes, average customer reviews, technical specs on each model, and not too many ads to interrupt your dig.
BestInClass expects to expand into different consumer purchase arenas, but is focused on digital cameras at launch. We can't say yet whether its algorithms do a better job than an afternoon spent price-matching and feature-comparing, but it's at least a great starting point for narrowing the field.
