Kodak EasyShare C340 – Review @ CNET

David English has just posted his review on Kodak EasyShare C340 at CNET. He gave the camera 6.4 out of 10 (good) and wrote:

kodak_C340

The good: Excellent resolution for the price; capable of producing relatively high-quality photos; easy-to-navigate onscreen menus; integration with EasyShare software and accessories.

The bad: Small LCD screen; limited manual controls; out-of-alignment optical viewfinder; jerky video captures.

The bottom line:
The Kodak EasyShare C340 has the two top qualities needed for beginners: it’s easy to use, and it can produce relatively high-quality photos.”

Nikon D200 – Preview @ RobGalbraith

Rob Galbraith just posted his preview on the new Nikon D200. He wrote:

“If the image quality is solid (managing noise at ISO 400 and above has been a challenge for Nikon in recent times) and the new autofocus system is reasonably capable, then the D200 may well be one of the most interesting digital SLR models the company will release in some time. At first glance, it looks to be an effective response to Canon’s slightly less expensive entry-level pro camera the EOS 20D, because the D200 will almost certainly have a more-capable flash system, it produces a higher-resolution photo and most of its other main specifications meet or exceed those of the Canon model too. We’ll wait to view the pictures produced by the D200 before declaring it the superior of the two, however, since the image quality from the 20D is really good, and it’s especially impressive at the higher ISO settings where Nikon’s other double-digital megapixel camera, the D2X, falters.”

Nikon D200 – Preview by Let’s Go Digital

Dennis Hissink had his hands on the new Nikon D200 and wrote:

“Well what can I say.? I am enthusiastic… maybe this is not the right word,; I am excited is putting it more clearly and it expresses better the way I feel. Excited because I believe the Nikon D200 is just the right product for all Nikon fans waiting out there. Ok you could argue about the fact that it took Nikon this long to anticipate to the fast changing market, but hey.. it’s here now! I am sure that Nikon D100 users, myself included will react positively to this introduction and will upgrade to this new platform where Pro meets Entry-level… bridging the gap! I also see the D200 function as a 2nd body for Professionals using the advantages of the DX standard. The D200 has it all, I believe we are looking at an all-round D-SLR tagged with a very interesting price..”
