This Week’s (Mar 10-16, 2012) Digital Camera Review Roundup

Sat March 17, 2012

Here is this week’s (Mar 10-16, 2012) digital camera review roundup:

  • DCRP (dcresource) recommends the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check]if you [...] want a semi-compact camera with D-SLR image quality, then look no further than the Canon PowerShot G1 X. It’s not for action photography (due to its sluggish focusing and burst modes) nor is it great for close-ups, but for virtually every other situation, the G1 X delivers.
  • ePHOTOzine recommends the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check] finding that it “is capable of producing some excellent photos however, we do wish it was a little quicker.
  • ePHOTOzine highly recommends the Fujifilm X-PRO1 concluding that it “is a fantastic camera, in every area it produces the results expected from a premium quality camera. The image quality is stunning.
  • Imaging Resource likes the Samsung NX200 finding a mirrorless “designed to appeal to the stealthy street shooter and camera enthusiast.
  • ePHOTOzine reviews the Samsung WB150F [QuickPrice Check] and finds that it is “a nice compact, ultra zoom that has a wide variety of built in Wi-Fi options that make it really appealing.
  • KenRockwell loves the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check] for landscape work and finds “it’s the best compact digital camera ever for the sorts of things I shoot as art, but it’s too slow for family photos.
  • Luminous Landscape reviews the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check] and finds that “it’s a pretty good camera, but I don’t particularly care for it.
  • CameraLabs recommends the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check] finding that “on the happy side is superb image quality [but] on the sad side is a fixed lens with terrible macro and little chance for a shallow depth-of-field, coupled with below-average continuous shooting from a camera that costs the same as many CSCs but lacks their interchangeable lens mounts.
  • ePHOTOzine recommends the Olympus TG-820 since it “does not disappoint [and is] an ideal camera for those who like to take pictures in extreme conditions.
  • ePHOTOzine reviews the Olympus SP-810 UZ [QuickPrice Check] and finds it “is a versatile camera, easy to carry and is a good choice for those on a budget.
  • electronista reviews the Fujifilm X10 [QuickPrice Check] and finds that it “is good enough that it truly could be the all-encompassing camera for many enthusiasts, not just step-up hobbyists or pros looking for a sidearm.
  • PhotographyBLOG highly recommends the Fujifilm X-PRO1″ concluding that the X-Pro1′s innovative image sensor and lack of low-pass filter lives up to all the hype and more, delivering truly excellent image quality. Noise is noticeable only by its almost complete absence throughout the ISO range of 100-25,600.
  • TechRadar reviews the Fujifilm X-PRO1 and finds that “the images from the Fuji X-Pro1 are superb. They may not have quite the detail that some full-frame cameras are capable of capturing, but they can beat these bigger beasts for dynamic range and noise control.
  • TechRadar reviews the Panasonic Lumix TS4 [QuickPrice Check] and find its “toughened qualities provide a degree of reassurance for those engaged in rough and tumble activities.
  • TechRadar reviews the Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 HS [QuickPrice Check] and finds that “Canon has indeed provided a compelling blend of attractive compactness, high image quality and enough features to satisfy its target market.
  • TrustedReviews recommends the Fujifilm X-PRO1 as “an enthusiast-level compact system camera that produces class-leading image quality and a really satisfying user experience.

Sat March 3, 2012

Here is this week’s (Feb 25-Mar 2, 2012) digital camera review roundup:

  • DPReview awards Silver to the Samsung NX200 as “a fine camera which is capable of producing excellent images.
  • DPreview has published their review of the Lytro Light Field camera — and give it their thumbs down as a consumer camera since “as a ‘don’t worry about focus’ point-and-shoot, the Lytro isn’t terribly successful.
  • TechRadar finds the Olympus SP-620UZ [QuickPrice Check] is a “budget priced 21x superzoom suitable for beginners.
  • CameraLabs highly recommends the Sony NEX-7 [QuickPrice Check] concluding that “its 24.3 Megapixel sensor produces excellent quality images that are at least the equal of those produced by most APS-C DSLRs to date.
  • DPReview reviews the Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS [QuickPrice Check] and finds that “image quality is good for its class, and generally quite impressive considering the ambitious range of its 12X zoom.
  • DigitalCameraReview recommends the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check] finding that “quite simply, the G1 X has by far the best high ISO performance of any Canon compact point-and-shoot camera I’ve ever reviewed.

Sat February 18, 2012

Here is this week’s (Feb 11-17, 2012) digital camera review roundup:

  • ePHOTOzine recommends the Sigma SD-1 [QuickPrice Check] finding that it is capable of taking some gorgeous photos with excellent detail at the pixel level, however to get the best from the camera it is necessary to take everything as RAW and process the files.
  • DigitalCameraReview recommends the Nikon COOLPIX P7100 [QuickPrice Check] liking that “the P7100′s impressively logical control array allows most primary functions/settings to be accessed directly.
  • PhotographyBLOG highly recommends the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check] even if “it can’t match a DSLR or an APS-C equipped compact system camera at the higher ISO speeds, but ISO 100-1600 is eminently usable with 3200 as a backup.
  • TechRadar highly recommends the Canon G1 X [QuickPrice Check] as it “impresses on all fronts, delivering excellent handling and great results.
  • DPReview recommends the Panasonic GX1 [QuickPrice Check] concluding that “improved image processing produces the most impressive high ISO JPEG performance we have seen in any Micro Four Thirds offering [...] Chroma noise is well-suppressed and an impressive amount of image detail can be seen as high as ISO 6400.
  • CameraLabs recommends the Panasonic GX1 [QuickPrice Check] finding it “is a highly satisfying compact system camera for enthusiasts, especially when equipped with the company’s 14-42mm power zoom lens.
  • TrustedReviews highly recommends the Panasonic GX1 [QuickPrice Check] concluding that it “delivers class-leading results.

This Week’s (Jan 7-13, 2012) Digital Camera Review Roundup

Sat January 14, 2012

Here is this week’s (Jan 7-13, 2012) digital camera review roundup:

  • This week has been CES 2012 and we got a flurry of camera updates from Canon, Samsung, Panasonic, Olympus and Fujifilm, though nothing terribly exciting. The Canon G1 X boasts a large sensor in a non-interchangeable lens camera and it’s pretty much where we see the compact prosumer cameras going. Canon however did not introduce any compact mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, the only big camera manufacturer that have not done so yet. Fujifilm introduced their mirrorless X-Pro1, though we can hardly assign the label “compact” to it. Fujifilm is also making big claims that the new sensor in the X-Pro 1 is “equal in resolution to a full-frame sensor, and signal to noise is equal to a full-frame sensor.” And even though it gives us a manual focus ring, the latter is fly-by-wire. Think of the X-Pro1 as an entry-level DSLR with its mirror removed. This is also about where we see entry-level DSLRs going: having their mirror removed since the latter is simply redundant and you should not be paying money for something that is unnecessary in a modern DSLR. Please check our Reviews Matrix for links to the appropriate press releases.
