This Week’s (Jun 16-22, 2012) Digital Camera Review Roundup

Sat June 23, 2012

Here is this week’s (Jun 16-22, 2012) digital camera review roundup:

  • Imaging Resource likes the Fujifilm X10 [QuickPrice Check] finding it “a pleasure to shoot with for the most part, and capable of very pleasing images, if perhaps with more blown shots than I’d expect. Unfortunately, the white disc problem means that–for now–I won’t be adding it to my arsenal.
  • DigitalCameraReview is not impressed with the performance of the Pentax K-01 [QuickPrice Check] even though it has “very good still image quality – on a par with the best cameras in the class – and high ISO noise performance as good or perhaps a bit better than the best APS-C sensor cameras.
  • CameraLabs highly recommends the Samsung NX20 as “a high quality camera with excellent Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • DCRP (dcresource) recommends the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V [QuickPrice Check] since it “is a very good travel zoom camera [...] If you’re not “pixel peeping” or making giant prints, then you’ll likely be satisfied by the image quality, as well.
  • PhotographyBLOG highly recommends the Samsung NX20 “if you’re attracted by the thought of a DSLR but don’t like the additional bulk, then the NX20 CSC is certainly a very capable alternative, offering similar image quality in a smaller package.
  • neocamera recommends the Nikon D3200 [QuickPrice Check] since “among entry-level DSLRs, the Nikon D3200 is one of the most basic but also one of the most simple to use. Image quality is very good.
  • DPReview reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P310 [QuickPrice Check] and finds that it “offers [...] something for snapshooters who want to learn more about photography through the camera’s manual modes.
  • CameraLabs highly recommends the Olympus OM-D E-M5 [QuickFact Sheet] which “looks good, handles beautifully, produces superb quality images and is great fun to take pictures with. [...] Indeed it all adds up to a killer combination that’s hard not to fall in love with.
  • We posted our Olympus OM-D E-M5 review.
