Just posted - Ricoh GXR P10 28-300mm Quick Review
Just posted! Our quick review of the Ricoh GXR P10 28-300mm F3.5-5.6 VC zoom lens module. With its 1/2.3" back-illuminated CMOS sensor and 28-300mm equivalent zoom range the third module in the system practically converts the GXR body into a 'Travel Zoom' compact camera. It also comes with features such as RAW capture and 5 fps continuous shooting. Find out how it performed in the dpreview tests after the link...
Ricoh GXR/P10 28-300mm F3.5-5.6 VC Quick Review
This camera has been reviewed using our 'Quick Review' format which we use for cameras that are in terms of operation and/or image quality very close to either their predecessors or other models in the line that we already treated to a full review. For a fuller view of the camera's functionalities and qualities we therefore recommend you not only read this Quick Review, but also the full review of the Ricoh GXR with the S10 24-72mm module.
Compact Camera Group Test: SLR-like 'super zoom' cameras
It's now more than a year since we published our last superzoom group test and despite the hype surrounding mirrorless system cameras such as Micro Four Thirds or the Sony NEX, and the fact that entry level DSLRs are becoming more and more affordable, superzoom cameras are as popular with consumers as ever. It is easy to see why. The combination of a large zoom range from wideangle to super telephoto, DSLR-like ergonomics and an attractive price point guarantee that these cameras appeal to a very broad audience.
Just Posted: Sony DSLR-A850 quick review
Just Posted: Our review of the Sony DSLR-A850. This camera was launched in August last year as a slightly down-specced companion to Sony's full-frame flagship DSLR, the A900. The A850 is in terms of specification very close to its bigger brother and Sony says both cameras share the same imaging pipeline. Click through to our review and see all the differences between the two models.
Sony Alpha DSLR-A850 Quick Review
This is the first camera to be reviewed using our new 'Quick Review' format. From now on we will be using this format for cameras that are in terms of operation close and in terms of image quality fundamentally identical to either their predecessors or other models in the line that we already treated to a full review. We first confirm the image quality is identical by running a couple of basic image quality tests (noise test and shots of our 'compared to' studio scene at all ISOs) and then concentrate in the review on the differences between the two cameras. For a fuller view of the camera's qualities we therefore recommend you not only read this Quick Review, but also the full review of the Sony DSLR-A900.
Just posted - Ricoh GXR S10 24-72mm in-depth review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the Ricoh GXR with the S10 24-72mm F2.5-4.4 VC lens module. After we reviewed Ricoh's A12 50mm APS-C module a couple of weeks ago it's now the more compact S10's turn. It's got a smaller 1/1.7 sensor and comes with a 3x zoom wide angle lens. Find out how the A12's sidekick performed in our comprehensive review after the link...
Ricoh GXR/S10 24-72mm F2.5-4.4 VC Review
This is the second of two reviews of the GXR; as each module is effectively a completely different camera we've decided to treat them as such and produce separate reviews. This review covers the GXR with the S10 24-72mm equiv (10Mp 1/1.7" sensor) module, the previous one had a look at the GXR/A12 50mm f2.5 equiv (12MP APS-C sensor) combo. The first half of both reviews is the same, covering the GXR camera body and system.
Just posted - Ricoh GXR A12 50mm F2.5 in-depth review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the Ricoh GXR with the A12 50mm F2.5 lens module. The GXR's concept of interchangeable lens modules is unique in today's digital camera world and generated a lot of interest when it was first announced four months ago. This review covers the GXR with the A12 50mm f2.5 equiv (12MP APS-C sensor) module (the S10 24-70mm module will follow soon). Find out how Ricoh's new flagship performed in our comprehensive review after the link...

Just posted - Our Pentax K-x in-depth review
Just posted! Our in-depth review of the Pentax K-x. Despite its compact size and inconspicuous exterior the K-x boasts an impressive feature set that is, in parts, not that far off the semi-pro K-7. In the entry-level segment of the market the new model will be facing fierce competition from the likes of Canon's EOS 500D and the Nikon D5000. Can the Pentax K-x make its mark amongst such well established rivals? Click through to find out.
