Budget Compact Camera Group Test

Just posted! The first of our Holidays '08 compact camera group tests. We're starting with the budget group, which contains nine models in the sub-$150 range. So what can you expect to get if shopping on a tight budget? Are there really any differences between the various models? And are there any bargains to be had or hidden gems in the entry-level ranges? Check out the roundup after the link to get all the answers...

Just posted! Sony Alpha 900 review
Just Posted! Sony Alpha 900 in-depth review. Sony's eagerly anticipated flagship digital SLR finally gives Minolta/Konica Minolta users a full frame option and, on paper, looks like a strong new entry to the exclusive full frame club. Featuring the 24.6 MP CMOS sensor announced in January, the Alpha 900 offers several enticing features, including sensor-shift image stabilization, a super 100% coverage viewfinder and the same high resolution screen as the Alpha 700. To find out how it fared in our extensive testing check out the in-depth review after the link.
Just Posted! Our Nikon D90 review
Just Posted: Nikon D90 in-depth review. The D90 has some large shoes to step into, given that it replaces one of the most popular enthusiast-level cameras of recent times. We saw in our preview that it's had a feature boost and specification upgrade, but do those tweaks and changes result in a better camera (and images)? Has a fine camera been over-burdened with fripperies and video recording? We find out in our full, in depth review.
Just posted! Nikon D700 review
Just Posted! Nikon D700 in-depth review. When Nikon launched its first ever full-frame DSLR, the D3, in August last year it was an instant success with professionals and serious amateurs alike. Now Nikon has transplanted the D3's excellent full-frame sensor into a more compact body and offers the package at a price point that is much more appealing to the masses. A recipe for success? Find out after the link.
Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Review

Just posted! Our in-depth review of the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, Canon's flagship full frame digital SLR and the current 'big daddy' of the professional DLSR market. As well as upping the resolution to a class-leading 21.1 megapixels the Mark III boasts a raft of improvements and refinements over the Mark II, the camera it replaces. We've been using the EOS-1Ds Mark III for over 8 months now, and finally got the review finished this weekend. So, apologies for the 'better late than never' timing.

Just posted! Canon EOS 450D / Rebel XSi review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the latest in the popular 'Rebel' line of digital SLR cameras from Canon (rather later than we planned, it took a little longer to complete than we expected). The EOS 450D (Rebel XSi) builds on the success of the EOS 400D (Rebel XTi), adding live view, a new 12MP CMOS sensor and a smattering of new features (including boosted continuous shooting and spot metering). So does the EOS 450D have what it takes to stand out in the increasingly crowded (and competitive) entry-level digital SLR market? Read the in-depth review after the link to find out...
Just posted! Nikon D3 review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the Nikon D3. Nikon's first full frame D-SLR features a 12.1MP CMOS sensor, high speed continuous shooting (up to 11 fps in DX crop mode), the same 3-inch high resolution LCD (with live view) as the D300, a headline-grabbing ISO 100-25,600 expanded sensitivity range, beefed-up 51-point autofocus and a raft of upgrades andenhancements. Find out how it did in our extended testing after the link... Updated: Canon EOS-1D Mark III comparisons added.
Just posted! Nikon D60 review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the latest entry-level Nikon digital SLR, the D60. The D60 replaces the D40X and adds a stabilized kit lens, Expeed processing, a clever new anti-dust system, Active-D Lighting and a smattering of feature and interface enhancements. But the big question is, does Nikon's new baby have what it takes to compete in the increasingly crowded beginner's SLR market? Find out after the link...
Just posted! Olympus E-3 review
Just posted! Our review of the Olympus E-3. The long-awaited successor to the original Four-Thirds D-SLR (the E-1), the E-3 is packed with features designed to tempt professional and enthusiast photographers away from the likes of Canon and Nikon. With live view, a vari-angle screen, in-body stabilization and a splash-proof body the 10MP E-3 certainly looks competitive on paper, but how does it stand up in the face of such strong competition at the high end of the DSLR market? Check out the in-depth review after the link to find out...
Just posted! Canon SX100 IS review
Just Posted! Our review of the Canon Powershot SX100 IS, the first model in Canon's brand new line of 'budget' superzoom digital cameras. The SX100 IS comes with a 8MP sensor, 10x zoom and a number of manual controls, occupying the gap between Canon's tried and tested A-series and the more upmarket Powershot S5. In its press material Canon claims the SX series offers exceptional performance in the hands of any member of the family; to find out how it performed in our capable hands check out the review after the link ...
