Canon PowerShot A540 – Review @ DPInterface

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

DPInrterface has reviewed the Canon PowerShot A540, a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera featuring 4x Optical Zoom lens (35-140mm equivalent) and a 2.5″ LCD screen.


“The PowerShot A540 also has good battery life though competition is getting better. The LCD is at its largest size as well (for an entry-level camera), being a good 2.5 inches with nice visibility. Despite that, the resolution is not at all high. Got a problem with the LCD resolution? At least there’s an optical viewfinder. “

Monday, June 26th, 2006

Let’sGoDigital has posted a review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5, new 6.0 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera with 6x optical zoom (equivalent to 37-222mm ), Image Stabilizer and 2.5″ LCD. He gives the camera 4 out of 5 stars and writes;


“With the Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5, Panasonic offer a very attractive camera indeed. It offers the consumer true value for money, a fact that is only emphasised by the combination of the 6x optical zoom and the optical image stabiliser, which proves an undeniable asset of the camera. The Panasonic LZ5 has quite a few predecessors, and it is always good to see that a new generation has been improved or upgraded on at least several points. The camera’s compact design allows you to carry it along easily, whilst the user-friendliness and easy operation ensure it can be used by all types of photographers. “

Samsung Digimax S500 – Review @ CNET

Monday, June 26th, 2006

CNET have recently published a review of the Samsung Digimax S500, a 5.1 megapixel (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera with 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 35 – 105 mm) and 2.4″ LCD Screen. They rate the camera 5.2 out of 10 (average) and write;


“Even at ISO 50 (the lowest setting possible with this camera), some noise was visible in our test images, though it was very minor and remained so at ISO 100. At ISO 200, noise was very noticeable, causing even moderately dark colors to become mottled with splotches of varying lightness and colors, though many finer details were still unobscured. By ISO 400, the noise overwhelmed lots of detail, resulting in images unfit for print.”

Nikon D200 – Review @ TrustedReviews

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

TrustedReviews have posted a review of the Nikon D200, a Digital SLR camera with a 10.2 megapixel CCD sensor, 5 frames per second with bursts up to 37 JPEGs (Fine-Large) or 22 NEF (RAW) images and a large 2.5″ LCD screen. They rate the camera 8 out of 10 and write;

Nikon D200

“As to the crucial question of how it compares to the new Sony Alpha, which uses the same Sony-made 10.2MP APS CCD, it’s tricky one. The Sony is certainly a lot more accessible for the less experienced user, and is of course a lot cheaper and considerably lighter. The D200 however has the edge on build quality, performance and robust durability. As for image quality, I’m still waiting for the Sony RAW processing software, so a conclusive analysis will have to wait, but for camera-processed JPEG images I’d have to give it to the Sony Alpha for sharpness, dynamic range, colour reproduction and image noise control.”

Nikon Coolpix S5 – Review @ ImagingResource

Saturday, June 24th, 2006

ImagingResource 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.


“One of the reasons I’ve never been particularly fond of slim cameras is that I couldn’t figure out the best place to put my fingers. The Nikon S5 has partially solved that problem by having the grip-end of the camera be slightly curved inward thanks to the wave design. Nikon has also placed a wedge-shaped thumb-grip in the right-hand corner of the rear of the camera which helps to stabilize it. “

Canon PowerShot S3 IS – Review @ DigitalCameraInfo

Saturday, June 24th, 2006

DigitalCameraInfo has recently posted a review of the Canon PowerShot S3 IS, a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) with 12x Optical Zoom lens (36 – 432mm equivalent) with Canon’s Image Stabilizer, and a 2.0″ Vari-Angle LCD screen.


“..the Canon PowerShot S3 IS is one of the larger ultra-zoom cameras. It still doesn’t even approach the size of a DSLR, though: it falls somewhere in between. The design certainly doesn’t aim to be compact like the ultra-zoom Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1. Instead, this chunky digital camera goes for hybrid functionality in a sturdy plastic shell. Its protrusions will keep it from conveniently sliding into a pocket, and users should look into purchasing a small camera bag for transporting it. “
