Just posted - Sony Alpha 550 review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of Sony's mid-range SLR, the Alpha DSLR-A550. The A550 is part of a new range that sits between the A200/A300 and the high end A700, and offers an interesting combination of features (including in-camera automatic HDR, 7 fps continuous shooting and Sony's excellent live view system) whilst retaining the Alpha line's emphasis on friendly ease of use. Find out how we got on with the Alpha 550 after the link...
Just posted! Panasonic GF1 review
Just Posted: Our in-depth review of the GF1 - the third model in Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds 'G' system. The GF1 squeezes much the same functionality as the G1/GH1 into a body that's roughly the same size as the Olympus E-P1. So how does it compare to the Digital Pen, and can it compete with similarly-priced digital SLRs? Check out the review after the link to find out...
Just Posted: Olympus E-P1 in-depth review
Just Posted: Our in depth review of the Olympus E-P1. Olympus has generated quite a buzz with its compact, mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera. Its metal body, styled to evoke memories of the company's successful Pen series of half-frame film cameras contains a 12MP image stabilized sensor mated to the company's latest image processing engine. So, is this 'Digital Pen' the perfect carry everywhere camera? Read our 37-page in-depth review to find out.
Just Posted: Olympus E-30 Review
Just Posted: Our full review of the Olympus E-30. The E-30 is the long-awaited 'tweener' model that fills the gap in the E-system range between the entry-level models and the flagship E-3. With a new 12 megapixel sensor, a selection of unique in-camera creative options and a wealth of features, the E-30 looks very promising on paper, but does it deliver in use? Find out in our in-depth review after the link.
Just posted! Canon EOS 5D Mark II review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, long-awaited successor to the popular EOS 5D, the first 'compact' full frame digital SLR. The Mark II ups the pixel count to 21 million and comes complete with a long list of upgrades, enhancements and new features - including live view and HD video capture. Unlike the original 5D the new model faces some stiff competition from the likes of Nikon and Sony - and the 5D is quite a tough act to follow... so find out how it fared in our full test after the link.
Just posted! Panasonic G1 review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1, the world's first 'Micro Four Thirds' system camera. Updating the digital SLR (DSLR) for the 21st century, the mirrorless G1 replaces the tried-and-tested optical viewfinder with a new high resolution electronic version and aims to offer the quality and versatility of an SLR combined with the user-friendly ease of use of a compact camera. Does it succeed? Find out in our review after the link. Apologies for the delay on this one; the Christmas holidays, group tests and challenges launch got in the way, but full reviews are back up to speed now.
Super Zoom Camera Group Test
0

Just posted! The fifth and final installment of our compact camera roundup looks at 'big zoom' SLR-styled compact cameras. The appeal of being able to shoot everything from a sweeping landscape to a tightly framed telephoto shot with a single affordable - and relatively compact - camera is easy to understand; finding your way through the sea of seemingly very similar models is more of a challenge. We decided to look at seven of the latest models to find out if they are as similar in performance as they are in specification and design.

Enthusiast Compact Camera Group Test

Just posted! The fourth (and penultimate) installment of our compact camera roundup looks at the top-end cameras aimed at the experienced photographer. These enthusiast cameras offer a bit more flexibility than the cameras we've looked at so far, whether that's the inclusion of a large zoom range or a greater degree of manual control. Follow the link to find what we made of them.

Premium Compact Camera Group Test

Just posted! The third of our group tests covers the premium 'point and shoot' compacts that sit at or near the top of their respective ranges. With wide lenses, up to 14.7 million pixels and stuffed to the gills with features these cameras command top dollar, but are they all worth it? Follow the link, delve into the reviews and see what we've found...

Ultra Compact Camera Group Test

Just posted! The second of our group tests covers the ultra compact, style cameras. They fit well in a pocket or handbag, they offer interesting design and a choice of colors; but is there a price to be paid for that compactness? Can the substance match the style? Follow the link, delve into the reviews and see what we've found...
