This Week’s (April 17-23, 2010) Digital Camera Review Roundup

Sat April 24, 2010

Here is this week’s (April 17-23, 2010) digital camera review roundup:

  • DCRP (dcresource) loves the Canon EOS Rebel T2i / 550D [Specs]: “I’m a fan of the EOS Rebel T2i. I brought it with me on vacation and it produced some fantastic photos that will soon be hanging on my wall.
  • There’s not much that needs to be said about the Nikon D3s [Specs]. Imaging Resource finds that it is simply “is an amazingly capable professional digital SLR, retaining most of what was great about the Nikon D3, and adding astonishing improvements in low-light capability and a larger image buffer size.” Concerning the video capability of this DSLR, they add, “The Nikon D3S still works extremely well, and is capable of recording in light so low that no camcorder can compete.
  • Well, this is a first: Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley of Harry Potter movies fame) reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 [QuickPrice Check]. Why do people in North America tend to “believe” what celebrities say? Just asking.
  • Imaging Resource reviews the Olympus E-P2 [Specs] which, as a truly compact camera with much of the versatility of a DSLR, “the E-P2 fulfils that request pretty admirably.
  • It is then the turn of LetsGoDigital to put the Olympus E-PL1 [Specs] through its paces: “The Olympus PEN E-PL1 system camera has an excellent price/quality ratio and represents an example of what a Micro Four Thirds System means… the ease of a compact and the quality of a DSLR.
  • By the way, if you own a PEN Digital, you will make to download the latest firmware upgrade. According to an autofocus speed test by DPReview, the new firmware improved AF by approx. 20% (firmware v1.1 on E-PL1).
  • If you want a simple point-and-shoot, DigitalCameraReview recommends the Casio Exilim EX-S7 [QuickPrice Check]for consumers on a limited budget who want a well-built, small camera that has many interesting features.
  • TrustedReviews take a look at the Samsung SL630 / PL80 and finds that it is a “well-made camera, and does manage to provide a good specification for its price, [but] its slow performance, unreliable AF system and sub-standard image quality are major handicaps.
  • PhotographyBLOG finds that the Nikon Coolpix P100 [Specs]can be a good choice for those who yearn for the convenience of a superzoom but also require the creative control provided by a high-end camera./em>”
  • Though DigiCamReview finds the Ricoh CX3 [QuickPrice Check] kind of expensive, they like it and believe that “you could perhaps own the last camera you will ever need.
  • DCRP (dcresource) finds that the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS [Specs]has frustrating ergonomics, a weak flash, average performance (at best), and photo quality that could be better. The PowerShot SX210 isn’t a bad camera by any means — it’s just not a great one.
  • Finally, we’re not surprised at all that DigitalCameraReview finds the Nikon D3s [Specs] to be “probably among the most capable pro DSLRs on the market today.

This Week’s (March 27-April 2, 2010) Digital Camera Review Roundup

Sat April 3, 2010

Here is this week’s (March 27-April 2, 2010) digital camera review roundup:

  • The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS [Specs] receives high praises this week from a number of reviewers: TrustedReviews finds that it “offers more genuinely useful features than almost anything else in its class,PhotographyBLOG says it is “for anyone looking for an undemanding travel camera that almost does it all” and TechRadar rates it as “one of the best compact cameras of the year so far… It’s superb.
  • Touchscreen seems to be coming of age and actually getting usable on digicams without the early frustration factor: Camera Labs loved the touch-screen on the Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS / IXUS 210 [Specs] [not to be confused with the SX210 IS above] and finds that it “works so well that after a short time using it you find yourself wondering why we ever bothered with little buttons.
  • A trip to China is something you surely want to record in pictures and video. Which camera to bring? Ask DigitalCameraReview who liked the Nikon Coolpix P100 [Specs] so much they are taking this 26x ultra wide-angle optical zoom to their 11-day China Trip — and rethinking the need to upgrade to a DSLR.
  • But wait! Want something a bit more compact with a long zoom and GPS to boot? The compact Sony DSC-HX5V [QuickPrice Check] with 10x ultra wide-angle optical zoom and GPS scored as a “technological tour-de-force loaded with more features than anything else on the market” in the review by TrustedReviews.
  • PhotographyBLOG found the waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof Olympus TOUGH 3000 [Specs] to be pretty versatile as a family snapshooter but with average image quality.
  • TrustedReviews finds that the Canon PowerShot A490 [Specs]overall build quality, performance and image quality don’t really compare to Canon’s more expensive models” and recommends looking at a more expensive model. We invite you to check our Reviews Matrix for a second opinion.
  • DigitalCameraReview loved the Canon A3100 IS as “an almost ideal first digital camera and an excellent choice for the primary family camera.
  • So many good things have already been said about the Canon EOS Rebel T2i / 550D [Specs] and DPReview confirms that it “is the best camera of its class that we’ve ever seen, and one of those rare cameras that won’t look out of date in a couple of years’ time.
  • Finally, is it worth upgrading to the Nikon D3s [Specs]? Thom Hogan says, Yes, because simply, “It’s better” and now you can “Shoot at any ISO.”

Here is this week’s (March 15-19, 2010) digital camera review roundup:

  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 / TZ10 continues to be a popular model to be reviewed (2 were reviewed last week): Camera Labs loved it and gave it a “Highly Recommended” score. DCRP (dcresource) liked it, including the “well-implemented GPS,” but thought that the high ISO image quality is not as good as in the camera it is replacing.
  • Trusted Reviews thought that the Casio Exilim EX-Z2000 is a real bargain and is “proof that Casio can make a luxury ultra-compact camera just as well as the bigger names in the market.”
  • The Nikon Coolpix S8000 is the world’s thinnest 10x ultra zoom and Tech Radar thought it’d make a great compact ultra zoom for those who want a pocketable 300mm (equiv.) lens.
  • PhotographyBLOG liked the touchscreen Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP3 and recommends it as an affordable and portable holiday camera, especially if you are visiting bright and sunny places.
  • For those who want a pocket HD camcorder, Tech Radar finds that the new Sony PM5K Bloggie with its rotating lens, unique 360° add-on lens, and uncomplicated online video sharing make it “great fun to use.”
  • DPReview finds that the Ricoh GXR S10 unit is just not justified on price with its compact digicam image quality.
  • Steve’s Digicams found the Canon PowerShot A3100 IS to be “an easy-to-use entry-level digicam that anyone can operate.
  • DigitalCameraInfo ranked the image quality of the Samsung NX10 DIL camera higher than that of the mFTs.
  • The proof-everything Olympus TOUGH-8010 is previewed by PhotographyReview.
  • PhotographyBLOG loved the touch screen on the Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS / IXUS 210 but was not impressed with the image quality.
  • Imaging Resource, on the other hand, loved the superb usability and low light modes of the Sony HX5V.
  • TrustedReviews got their hands wet with the Casio EX-G1 and liked its class-leading shock protection, ease of use and image quality.
  • TechRadar finds that the Canon EOS T2i / 550D will reward you with pro-quality images at a mass-market price.
  • DigitalCameraInfo finds that the Panasonic TS2 / FT2 is one tough camera that does not sacrifice image quality.
