Here is this week’s (Sep 18-24, 2010) digital camera review roundup:
- TrustedReviews highly recommends the Panasonic DMC-LX5 [Specs] as “without a doubt one of the best compact cameras on the market.“
- If you have a child you want to get interested in photography, Steve’s Digicams recommends the Kodak EasyShare M530 [QuickPrice Check] as “a compact digicam that will be someone’s first digital camera.“
- TrustedReviews likes and recommends the Casio EX-FH100 [QuickPrice Check] and concludes that “the Casio EX-FH100 demonstrates that Casio should not be overlooked when it comes to advanced high-tech cameras.“
- Camera Labs likes the Canon PowerShot SD4000IS [QuickPrice Check] for “the combination of a sensible resolution and a bright lens (at least when zoomed-out) [which] gives it a definite advantage over typical compacts in dim conditions.“
- TechRadar rates the Nikon Coolpix S5100 [QuickPrice Check] as “a tiny compact that’s ideal for snapping on the fly. Score: 3.5/5“
- Steve’s Digicams finds the Olympus SP-800UZ [Specs] as “one of the most versatile cameras on the market today.“
- Photokina started on Tuesday.
- Pentax announced the K-5.
- Leica announced a Special Edition titanium version of the M9 and a black version of the X1. It also announced the V-LUX 2 (a rebadge of the Panasonic FZ100) and the D-LUX5 (a rebadge of the Panasonic LX5).
- Panasonic announced the availability of its 3D Lens and a new (world’s lightest single focal length) LUMIX G 14 mm / F2.5 ASPH.
- Olympus announced a concept large sensor compact sporting a Zuiko signature lens.
- Fujifilm announced its large sensor compact FinePix X100 with a beautiful retro rangefinder look and set some every high expectations for itself that it simply has to meet to be a viable competitor to the large sensor mirrorless digital interchangeable lens cameras. I am just surprised about the estimated price of $1,000 which puts it way outside the reach of most enthusiasts, its primary target market.
