“It’s an exceptional little camera whose specs and performance would have been hard to imagine just a few years ago, particularly for $500. If you’re looking for a go-anywhere pocketable camera in this price range you owe it to yourself to look at Canon’s G9. I believe that it truly represents today’s gold standard for point & shoot camera performance and specifications.”

“Canon’s EOS 40D features many improvements over its predecessor and finally shows the pesky Nikon D80 who’s boss – albeit one which costs almost half as much again. Canon’s delivered a superb DSLR which handles beautifully, is packed with useful features and delivers great-looking images.”

“Like the FZ7 and FZ8 before it, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 makes a great all-round family digital camera. Beginner amateur photographers (and the proverbial “soccer moms”) will find it easy-to-use, especially with the Intelligent Auto (iA) mode that turns on MEGA O.I.S., Intelligent ISO, Face Detection, Continuous Auto-Focus and Intelligent Scene Selector for a beginner’s point-and-shoot ease of use.”

“I have no problems recommending the Olympus Evolt E-510 two lens kit for D-SLR newbies or those who don’t have an extensive collection of older lenses. However if you have a collection of glass, go with similar 10MP Canons or Nikons.”

The 40D is available for £772:

“Overall, the Canon EOS 40D is a more than able update of the 30D and since the introduction of the first Canon prosumer DSLR, the 3.1-megapixel EOS D30 back in 2000, it is light years ahead on that base line.”

Olympus Mju 760Cameras.co.uk have reviewed the new Olympus Mju / Stylus 760 – an ultra compact 7 megapixel digital camera with a 7.1 megapixel sensor, a 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.5″ screen, and built in anti-shake CCD sensor image stabilisation, weatherproof metal body, and ISO upto 1600. It’s available in three colours: Silver, Blue, and Ruby Red (pictured), from £164.

“In most respects the Olympus mju 760 is a typical feature-starved budget-priced 3x zoom pocket compact, but superior build quality, stylish design, excellent low-light focusing and of course its weatherproof body set it apart from the crowd. Image quality is no better than most cameras in its class, but no worse either. As a basic snapshot camera it offers excellent value for money.”

GE G1DCResource have reviewed the new GE G1 digital camera – it features a 7 megapixel sensor, a 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.5″ screen, video, all packed into a stylish black body made out of plastic, the camera will be available in multiple colours:

“Photo quality on the G1 is nothing to write home about. While exposure was good, the G1 produced more than its share of photos with a noticeable color cast. Photos are soft, with fuzzy details, probably due to heavy noise reduction. Photos are missing quite a bit of detail at fairly low ISO settings (compared to other cameras in this class), and the two highest sensitivities are a bit of a joke.”
