Just posted! Our review of Nikon's first budget super zoom camera the Coolpix 4800, which has four million pixels and an 8.3x zoom. This point and shoot is considerably larger and more powerful than the 5200 and 4200 before it, sports a larger handgrip, is crafted entirely out of plastic and sports an ED lens. It also boasts 11 scene modes, a 640x480-pixel movie mode and fast startup and operation. Click on the link below to see how it fares in our test.
Just posted! Our review of Panasonic's flagship model and the third generation of super zoom cameras, the Lumix DMC-FZ20. The 5 megapixel FZ20 has a whopping Leica-branded DC Vario-Elmarit 12x zoom and numerous improvements over its predecessor, the FZ10, as well as new technologies. It boasts a newly-improved optical image stabilization Venus II engine for shots at the long end of the zoom. Check out our concise review of the FZ20 to see what we thought of it.
Just posted! Our review of Canon's addition to the S series, the wideangle PowerShot S70. It's identical to its predecessor apart from a black paint job and 7.1 megapixel CCD. The sleek new S70 retains the 28 - 100mm wideangle lens and offers 13 shooting modes including enhanced VGA movie mode found on the S60. Check out our concise review to see if it lives up to expectations.
Just posted! Our review of Fujifilm's FinePix E550 Zoom, which is very similar in spec to the FinePix F810 Zoom but housed in a completely different body. The FinePix E550 is the flagship model in Fuji's new E series, which is characterised by wideangle lenses and large LCD screens. Take a look our concise review to see how it compares.
Just posted! Our review of Fujifilm's FinePix F810 Zoom, which uses the same 4th Generation Super CCD sensor as the S7000 zoom to produce 12 megapixel files from 6.3 million effective pixels. With a 4x (32.5 - 130mm equiv.) zoom and full photographic control in a slim, stylish, all-metal body it certainly looks good on paper, but will the output live up to Fujifilm's claims for its Super CCD technology? See how it shaped up in our concise review.
Just posted! Our review of Sony's CyberShot DSC-P150, when announced it was the first digital camera to use the new 1/1.8" seven megapixel CCD, and so it becomes our first review of a camera based around this sensor. From a design and feature set point of view the DSC-P150 is the same as the DSC-P100. What the DSC-P150 has revealed is that this small seven megapixel sensor can actually deliver the goods. See how it shaped up in our concise review.
Just posted! Our review of Canon's budget priced but big featured PowerShot A95, the five megapixel replacement for last years PowerShot A80. The A95 has a three times optical zoom lens, flip-out and twist LCD monitor, metal body and a wide range of manual controls. See how it shaped up in our concise review.
Just posted! Our review of the three megapixel twelve times optical zoom (stablized) Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ3. The FZ3 is one of the smallest 'super zoom' digital cameras on the market, its twelve times optical zoom lens carries the Leica badge and has a constant F2.8 aperture, it's also got image stabilization (very important on super zoom lenses). Announced at the end of July the FZ3 hits a pretty impressive price point with a good range of features. See how it shaped up in our concise review.
Just posted! Our review of the four megapixel, ten times optical zoom Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z2. The unusually styled Z2 offers a full range of manual controls, a big zoom lens and respectable resolution in a package which sits comfortably under the US$500 price point. The only thing the Z2 appears to be missing is image stabilization (something the recently announced Z3 adds). See how it shaped up in our concise review.
