Here is this week’s (May 29-June 4, 2010) digital camera review roundup:
- CameraLabs finds that “Nikon has delivered another easy-to-use point-and-shoot compact which […] produces equally good images (in decent light) while crucially hitting a comfortably lower price point” in the Nikon Coolpix S3000 [QuickPrice Check].
- PhotographyBLOG likes the price of the Samsung HZ30W / WB600 [QuickPrice Check] but finds that “in low-light things aren’t quite so rosy, with noise appearing at ISO 200 and becoming progressively worse as you move up the range, making this a camera best suited to sunny days.“
- DCRP (dcresource) finds the Samsung NX10 [Specs] “quite impressive for a first generation product, though it has a ways to go before it’ll be the best interchangeable lens camera on the market.“
- According to Imaging Resource, the Olympus E-PL1 [Specs] is “not only a great photographic tool (especially for the money), but a fun camera to shoot with as well.“
- The Samsung Dual View PL150 / TL210 [QuickPrice Check] is certainly unique with its extra front facing LCD and PhotographyBLOG highly recommends it for the “combination of the clever self-portrait LCD, large 3 inch screen on the rear and multitude of hand-holding technologies [that] makes the PL150 ideally suited for use by all members of the family.“
- There’s no doubt in Steve’s Digicams‘ mind that the Olympus TOUGH 8010 [Specs] “is still the perfect camera for the adventurous person.“
- TrustedReviews really likes the Samsung HZ35W / WB650 [QuickPrice Check] but with one caveat: “In many ways the Samsung WB650 is a better camera than the Panasonic TZ10. It has a better zoom range, a more accurate GPS system, a sharper monitor and crucially longer battery life. Build quality, design and handling are all excellent, but it can’t quite match its rival on low ISO image quality.“
- Imaging Resource thought the Canon IXUS 130 / PowerShot SD1400 IS [Specs] “packs a lot of photo smarts into an attractive package, but you make a sacrifice in image quality.“
- Steve’s Digicams rates the Panasonic ZR3 / ZX3 [Specs] as “a versatile pocket camera that offers excellent shooting performance, captures nice photos, and is loaded with useful technologies.“
- DigitalCameraReview finds that the Sony NEX-5 “comes in with competitive ISO and image quality performance.“
- PhotographyBLOG finds that when the Olympus FE-5030 [QuickPrice Check – UK] is “used as a strictly point-and-shoot camera, it does not really disappoint.“
- TechRadar takes a look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 [Specs] and concludes that its “Touchscreen AF-point selection is a truly impressive innovation, one that many less experienced photographers will find makes a huge difference to the quality of their photographs.“
- DigitalCameraReview finds the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 [Specs] “delivers the solid image quality we’ve come to expect from Panasonic’s MFT cameras.“
- And finally, if you are looking for an All-in-One printer, TrustedReviews reviews the Canon PIXMA MP560 Wireless Inkjet All-In-One Photo Printer [QuickPrice Check] and concludes, “Canon’s PIXMA MP560 is a good mid-ranking inkjet all-in-one… a good choice for home and some small business applications. “
- Oh, and Panasonic also introduced a Fisheye lens for its Lumix G-Series cameras.
