Kodak EasyShare C663 – Review @ CamerasUK

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

CamerasUK have published a review of the Kodak EasyShare C663, a 6.1 megapixel compact digital camera with 3x optical zoom and a 2.5″ LCD screen.


“The first outdoor shot is good. As I would expect with a camera in this price range focusing does not match the levels achieved by more expensive models. The photo is bright and the colours are strong too. There is a loss of detail in the very light and very dark areas of each shot. This does not reach excessive levels, but can be noticed. Working indoors in poor light is another area where the results are somewhat mixed. The shot taken in more or less complete darkness shows a fuzzy photo where the camera has struggled to focus properly. “

Kodak EasyShare V610 – Review @ DCRP

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

DCRP has recently published a review of the Kodak EasyShare V610, world’s Smallest 10X Optical Zoom 6.1 megapixel Digital Camera with Integrated Bluetooth Wireless Technologies and two Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon all-glass prism zooms (two CCDs) to cover a much wider 10x range (equivalent of 38-380mm).


“Camera performance was good in most respects. The V610 starts up quickly, focus times are decent, and shutter lag wasn’t a problem. There wasn’t much of a delay between shots, either. The continuous shooting mode was fair (eight shots at 1.8 fps), but most of the competition does a better job these days. The two areas in which the V610 didn’t perform well are battery life and zoom speed. The V610’s battery life numbers are by far the worst of any ultra zoom camera, with a CIPA score of just 135 shots per charge. The camera also takes almost five seconds to go from wide-angle to telephoto — and the zoom stops when you hit the “end” of one of the lenses, and you have to push the button again to continue zooming.”

Olympus Mju Digital 810 – Review @ DCViews

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

DCViews has recently published a review of the Olympus Mju Digital 810, a 8.0 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera featuring BrightCapture Technology for brighter LCD and better images in low light including a special mode to reduce possible image blur, 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 35 – 105mm lens in 35mm format), and 2.6″ TFT LCD screen.


“In use the camera handles like the proverbial dream and one handed operation is easy thanks to the wedge shaped design, with the right hand side being thicker for an easier grip. We have to mention however that the shiny scratch resistant covering of the HyperCrystal LCD is highly reflective and makes reviewing or composing images rather difficult in any but the most ideal lighting situations. Especially image contrast and sharpness cannot easily be assessed without covering the screen with your hands or taking the camera out of direct sunlight.”

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 – Review @ Steve’sDigicams

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

Steve’sDigicams have published a review of the Sony Cyber-shot H5, a point-and-shoot digital camera with 7.0 megapixel (6.0 mp for H2) CCD sensor, a huge 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 36 – 432mm), and 2.5″ LCD screen display.


“The autofocus system delivered consistently sharp images. It uses a 3-area multi point system, or you can use a single point and position it virtually anywhere in your composition. With the help of its AF-assist lamp, the H5 was able to autofocus very reliably in conditions of low ambient light; in complete darkness, the maximum range of the AF-assist lamp was about 12 feet. AF was effective in low light even in the telephoto range of the H5’s zoom lens. Manual focus is a feature missing from most consumer digicams, and for good reasons. “

Kodak EasyShare One – Review @ CNET

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

CBET have recently posted a review of the Kodak EasyShare-One, a point-and-shoot digital camera with 4.0 megapixel CCD sensor, 3x optical zoom, and a huge 3″ LCD Screen. They rate the camera 4.8 out of 10 and write;


” photos have extremely even exposures, just shy of overexposed, with little visible color noise. Colors tend to look a little washed out but acceptable, and white balance is pretty decent. Unfortunately, the trade-off is that photos look best from a distance and not cropped too closely or printed larger than 5×7. At that point, the smeary background and lost detail as well as a few compression artifacts all become visible.”
