Canon EOS 350D XT – Review by George Schaub

George Schaub has recently reviewed the Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT, a DSLR camera with 8 Megapixels CMOS sensor, at Shutterbug and wrote:

Canon 350D

“Image quality overall is quite impressive, easily yielding impressive 11×14” prints, thanks to that 8-megapixel sensor yielding a 24MB file. While some might have to upgrade via the web to open the XT (CR2) raw files in their image-processing software of choice, loading the simple but effective, and included, raw converter in Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software will do the trick. The XT’s success is hard to argue with, as it delivers very good quality images and enough imaging options to keep even the most control-oriented photographer busy.”

39 Megapixels back from Hasselblad

Hasselblad has recently announced the new 39 megapixels CFH-39 back which uses the latest 39 megapixel chip from Kodak. The 39MP CCD sensor is currently the largest sensor commercially available.

The new Imacon back comes as a bundle with the H2 camera, as a stand-alone back in mounts for all major camera systems, and as an integrated back/camera with the H2 body.

Kodak New Company Logo

Kodak Chairman and CEO Antonio Perez has revealed a new logo for Kodak replacing the famous yellow-box logo. According to him, the new logo features a new typeface with more rounded letters. He also said that this introduction is the latest step in the company’s broad brand transfromation effort, which reflects the multi-industry, digital imaging leader Kodak has become.

Kodak new Logo

Well, I reckon the logo is too plain and ugly compared to the previous logo which happened to be one of the most recognizable logos in the history.

Another mistake for this dying giant ??

Nikon D100 VS Nikon D200

Weston Hickey has posted a small review with some pictures comparing his old Nikon D100 and the new Nikon D200.

nikon d100 vs nikon d200


-It FINALLY feels more like my F100, than a plastic POS. THANK GOD! This was one of my biggest annoyances with the D100.

-The Auto WB is OH SO much better indoors than the D100. Altough I don’t have any indoor comparisons in this post, I’ll have some up later on my website with a full review….for now…trust me….it’s extraordinarily better indoors.

-The LCD is big and beautiful.

Panasonic DMC-LZ5 – First Impression Review @ DigitaCameraInfo

Patrick Singleton had his hands on the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5, a new 6 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera from Panasonic with Image Stabilizer and 2.5″ LCD. He liked how the camera has clean, and simple design, with an excellent image stabilization, solid construction, nice powerful and flash illuminates scene evenly and reasonable price. However, the did not like how the camera show lots of noise and marginal color accuracy, LCD display not good enough to inspect images, and the inaccuracy of exposure in challenging setting.

Panasonic DMC LZ5

In conclusion he wrote: “Getting an image-stabilized 6x zoom in a 6 megapixel compact camera for under $280 seems like quite a coup – or getting that for under $230 in a 5 megapixel camera. We like the LZ5 and LZ3′s simple interface, the solid construction and the plain styling. Panasonic’s image stabilization is great – it’s effective and simple to use. We give the company credit for putting it on low-priced cameras, too.

Nikon Coolpix P1 – Review @ Steve’s Digicams

Steve’s Digicams has recently posted their his review on Nikon Coolpix P1, a 8 Megapixels digital camera with builtin Wifi (802.11b/g-compatible) which will allow its users to immediately transfer images wirelessly to a computer or any PictBridge-enabled printer equipped with Nikon Wireless Printer Adapter.

nikon Coolpix P1

In conclusion he writes: “Ergonomics are surprisingly good. Although it is very compact, what we consider an “ultra- compact”, the enlarged hand grip makes for a comfortable feel in you hands and its various controls are laid out well and easily accessed by your fingertips. The WiFi features were simple to setup and use. Using the supplied software it was easy to get the camera to talk to my D-Link 802.11g router and transfer photos. It really does work as advertised as long as you are within the operating limits of your router.

Nikon’s Coolpix P1 is a nice ultra-compact digicam that produces good quality 8-megapixel images and VGA sized movies; and lets not forget its 802.11 b/g certified. I liked just about every feature on this model, and was only annoyed when trying to capture spontaneous moments of friends and family indoors. However, outdoors or when shooting under very good lighting, it will keep up with similar models in its class.”

Nikon D200

” In summery, the positive points of the D200 are: Excellent build and good sealing, Fast and accurate 11 point autofocus system a good step up from the older CAM900, Good noise control (for a CCD sensor), Full range of easily configured controls, good metering and TTL flash systems, Much improved CF access, Excellent value for money.

The negative points are: RAW Software included is abysmal, Capture 4 is extra and still not good, Batteries not compatible with D70/70s, Viewfinder only 95% coverage (minor niggle)”
