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.“
