“Good Points: Wide angle zoom, 3.6x optical zoom with the ability to extend to 5x, High Angle mode for increased screen visibility when attempting awkward shots

Bad Points: Occasional ‘purple fringing’ on some shots, Some controls require fingertip operation

Verdict: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 is a competent, carry anywhere, point and shoot. It’s easy to use and marries some unusual yet useful features to quality optics. ”

Canon EOS 30D – Review @ LetsGoDigital

Let’sGoDigital have reviewed the Canon EOS 30D, a digital SLR camera with 8.2 Megapixel (CMOS), 5 fps frame rate, 9-point autofocus, spot metering and 2.5 inch LCD screen.

canon-eos-30d

“The Canon EOS 30D enables you to use ISO 800 or ISO 1600 without any hindrance. Even ISO 3200 can still be used for many applications. This is truly an outstanding performance. We are very positive about the Picture Styles. It is a very intuitive way of handling the image settings. You can adjust the photo entirely to your own taste.
Even though the Canon 30D may not exactly be a revolutionary digital SLR camera, and the expectations were somewhat subdued, it is still a truly fantastic camera. The concept was already solid as could be, but with the introduction of the Canon EOS 30D, Canon have once again clearly asserted and strengthened its roots and their position. There are virtually no points that might cause any form of hindrance for the user, which, in our opinion, is an excellent performance indeed. A superb camera! “

Nikon Coolpix S5 – Review @ Steve’sDigicams

Steve’sDigicams has recently posted a review of the Nikon CoolPix S5, a a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) with 3x Optical Zoom lens (38-116mm equivalent), a 2.5″ LCD screen.

nikon-coolpix-s5

“The Coolpix S5 has a lot of appeal to those wanting ease of use and good image quality in a very small stylish package. It offers several unique features that distinguish it from the competition, including D-lighting, Red Eye Fix and Best Shot Selector. But it suffers from low flash output and sometimes selects a low shutter speed that results in images blurred by camera shake. “

nikon-coolpix-s6

“I was pleased with the overall image quality when using 6-Megapixel Fine mode. Outdoor images showed good overall exposure, with colors being nicely saturated. Noise levels were very low at sensitivity settings of ISO 50 and 100. Shadow noise is present at ISO 200, and noise is noticeable throughout the image at ISO 400, although those images are quite usable.”

Megapixel have recently posted a review of the Nikon Coolpix L2, a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 21.02.06) with 3.5x optical zoom lens (36-126mm equivalent) and a 2.0″ LCD screen. In conclusion they write;

nikon-coolpix-l2

“I was impressed with the image quality. Colors were accurate and skin tones looked good and weren’t too warm or reddish….

If you’re in the market for a simple to use, affordable camera, the Nikon Coolpix L2 is an excellent option (as are its siblings, the Coolpix L3 and Coolpix L4). The ease of use of this camera is hard to beat and it produces consistently good images. Most entry-level users will also be pleased with the Nikon Exclusive Feature System – the Face Priority AF makes focusing a portrait a no brainer and the D-Lighting will correct the lighting on shots to provide pleasing results. “

Nikon CoolPix S5 – Review @ TrustedReviews

TrustedReviews has recently posted a review of Nikon CoolPix S5, a a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) with 3x Optical Zoom lens (38-116mm equivalent), a 2.5″ LCD screen.

nikon-coolpix-s5

“Noise control was generally very good, producing very clean results at 50 ISO, but there was some colour distortion in darker areas visible from 100 ISO upwards.
The worst offender though was the lens, which is usually a Nikon strongpoint. This time I found badly blurred corners at both ends of the zoom range, as well as severe barrel distortion at the wide-angle setting, something I’d associate with cheap cameras at the other end of the price range. See the attached sample images to see what I’m on about here.”

Nikon Coolpix L2 – Review @ Megapixel

Megapixel have recently posted a review of the Nikon Coolpix L2, a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 21.02.06) with 3.5x optical zoom lens (36-126mm equivalent) and a 2.0″ LCD screen. In conclusion they write;

nikon-coolpix-l2

“Used to capture subjects indoors, the performance of the Coolpix L2 is not as good as when photographing outdoor subjects. The auto focus can have trouble attaining focus under standard illumination levels, and often requires being presented with a clearly defined contrast zone such as the hard vertical edge of a piece of furniture to focus. In addition, unless exposure compensation is used, the combination of a small and somewhat anaemic flash and the L2′s preference for low ISO values tends to yield fairly dark images as soon as the subject is more than 2m (6 ft) away.”
