On Fujifilm XF1 Preview preview (129 comments in total)

Frank Minster: I need some help. I have owned a canon s95 for 13 months and the lens won't retract and the camera won't power up. Of course it's one month out of the warranty. I was looking to replace it instead of fixing it. First thought was to go Canon S100 or S110. But i'm a little concerned from reading Canon reviews that this lens thing might be a problem across that line of cameras. Hench, I found this fuji. I really like some of the features on this camera (most being the double exposure shot). I'm more concerned about image quality and build though. I've read about orbs appearing in night shots. I'm not sure what direction to go. Any help is appreciated.

Check ifixit.com to see if anyone's dealt with similar issues on the S90 or S95.

On Panasonic DMC FZ200 preview (155 comments in total)

Accuracy, please. The FZ-1 (c. 2003) was the 35-420 mm camera with the constant f2.8 aperture lens. Aftermarket firmware update provided increased shutter speed or aperture control, but the 2-megapixel camera was the first in this line, not the FZ10. Thanks.

On Pentax unveils Optio RZ18 compact superzoom article (33 comments in total)
In reply to:

GiovanniB: Interestingly styled, maybe except for the speaker/mic grilles. The recessed, textured grip surfaces might turn bulky protrusions obsolete.

This camera clones a Samsung model of a couple of years ago, with a longer zoom. Nothing ground-breaking here.

On Casio reveals Exilim EX-ZS15 touch-screen compact article (9 comments in total)

I like Casio's cameras. But the crazy rush to touch-screen operation is baffling. Few of these touch-screen controls are viewable in bright daylight, which is where compact digital cameras can give their optimalresults! Perhaps fewer buttons eliminates costs, but as someone with grown-up fingers, I've found most touch-screen cameras (from Canon, Kodak, and Panasonic) over-promise and are a disappointment in many daylight photo opportunities.

Hard to believe that the same company that produced the excellent XA series of compact 35mm cameras could produce this collection of protrusions and add-ons -- and then call it 'compact.' With either shown lens and the flash accessory, it looks unwieldy.
