Just posted! Our concise review of the latest incarnation of Canon's popular big zoom PowerShot, the S3 IS. Like the S2 IS before it (and for that matter the original S1 IS), the S3 IS has been one of the most popular cameras on dpreview (measured by clicks) since the day it was announced, and one of the most requested reviews. Unlike the S2, the PowerShot S3 IS is a relatively minor upgrade to it's predecessor, upping the resolution to 6MP and adding a couple of features. So is it enough to keep up in 2006?.

Kodak has today announced the EasyShare V610 dual lens camera. The 6.1 MP compact has the same sleek styling - and dual lens system - as the V570, announced in January. This time Kodak are using two Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon all-glass prism zooms (and two CCDs) to cover a much wider 10x range (equivalent of 38-380mm). The V610 also features a large 2.8-inch LCD, Bluetooth wireless technology and sensitivity up to ISO 800. Looks like an interesting (and much slimmer) alternative to the Panasonic TZ1 - though without the benefit of optical image stabilization.
