Here is this week’s (Aug 18-24, 2012) digital camera review roundup:
- KenRockwell reviews the Canon EOS REBEL T4i [QuickPrice Check] and recommends “getting the kit with the 18-135mm STM as I did. It doesn’t cost much more than the other versions, and the 18-135mm STM is magnificently silent and fast in its autofocus. It also covers every focal length a reasonable person would want.“
- CameraLabs recommends the Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS [QuickPrice Check] as “truly a marvel of miniaturisation. If you’re looking for a pocket zoom that really is pocketable you be hard pressed to find a model that matches it for size, weight and classy good looks. The quality is more than skin deep, it’s beautifully engineered and feels like a quality product.“
- ePHOTOzine highly recommends the Sony NEX-F3 [QuickPrice Check] as “a fantastic choice for those looking at their first interchangeable lens camera. It […] takes excellent pictures, with fantastic detail and colour reproduction.“
- DPReview awards Silver to the Canon EOS REBEL T4i [QuickPrice Check] concluding that it is “one of the more enjoyable to use entry level DSLRs on the market.“
- Steve’s Digicams reviews the strictly entry-level Nikon COOLPIX S6300 [QuickPrice Check] finding that “when one of the primary drawbacks is soft image quality, it’s a tough hurdle to overcome; even for an inexpensive camera. Still, there are enough other nice features with the S6300 that it will work well for some types of beginner-level photographers.“
- PhotographyBLOG highly recommends the Pentax K-30 [QuickPrice Check] finding that its “image quality is excellent, producing noise-free images all the way from from ISO 100-1600.“
- ePHOTOzine recommends the Samsung WB850F [QuickPrice Check] as “image quality is good, with excellent colour reproduction. Overall it’s an ideal travel zoom camera.“
- Nikon announced the COOLPIX S01, S800c and P7700
- Olympus announced the SP-820UZ.
- Pentax announced the X-5.
