August 1999 news and reviews
Just posted is our latest review which is of the Olympus C-2000Z, it fits into the same class of cameras as the Nikon Coolpix 950 and the two are often compared. "When the Olympus C-2000Z was announced it surprised some people, everyone was expecting Olympus to release a 2 megapixel 3x zoom digicam to match Nikon, but most expected it to follow along the lines of the popular D600/D620L (C1400XL) digital SLR."
Just posted: Our latest digital camera review, the Kodak DC280 Zoom. The DC280 Zoom fits into the new Kodak line of digital cameras just below the recently announced DC290, the DC280 has a 30mm - 60mm (2x) zoom lens, 2.3 megapixel CCD and a host of built-in features designed to satisify the medium-level digital camera enthusiasts.
Just released VuePrint 7.3 - a JPEG image viewer for Windows. The main new feature may be of interest - it displays comprehensive digital camera information when reading files that have embedded EXIF, CIFF, or Olympus APP12 info.
Lucky guy! Steve has posted his first impressions of a beta Japanese model Fuji MX-2900, he says: "The soon to be released FujiFilm FinePix 2900Z (aka MX-2900) zoom has the largest CCD imager of any consumer digicam that we have tested so far. It is an impressive 2.3 megapixel CCD that yields 1800 x 1200 pixel images"
Just posted: the latest of our 2 megapixel digital camera reviews comes the Fuji MX-2700. "The MX-2700 is Fuji's answer to the easily pocketable easy-to-use 2 megapixel class camera and to that extent it fits the bill. A worthy successor to the popular MX-700."
The Sony DSC-D700 caused quite a stir in the Digital Photography world when it was announced last year. Many people were excited by it's specifications: five times zoom, full SLR-TTL viewfinder, 1.5 Megapixel CCD and all the manual controls you'd expect to find on a true SLR.
