Sony Cybershot DSc-T200DCResource have reviewed the new Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 – an ultra compact 8 megapixel digital camera with a 3.5″ screen, 5x optical zoom lens, ISO upto 3200, and widescreen aspect ratio photos. The camera will be available in black, silver, and red. The T200 is available from £211.

“The Cyber-shot DSC-T200 ($399) is the flagship camera in Sony’s ultra-compact lineup. Featuring an 8 Megapixel sensor, 5X optical zoom, optical image stabilization, and gargantuan 3.5” touchscreen LCD display, the T200 is “bigger and better” than just about everything else on the market. Heck, it even has a “smile shutter” feature which waits until your subject is smiling before it takes a photo (and yes, it works).”

Pocket Lint have published their review of the new Olympus EVOLT E-510 DSLR, an update to the E-500, it features a new 10 megapixel live-MOS sensor, with live view, a new image processing engine “TruePic III”, dust reduction, shadow adjustment technology, and Supersonic Image Stabilizer Unit. The E-510 is available for £531 with kit lens, or £618 with twin lens.

“Okay, if you own a Canon or Nikon system you’re already locked into that are unlikely to swap due to the cost of switching all those lenses if nothing else, but if you’re trading up from compacts, across from film or simply need a compact yet superbly specified DSLR with anti shake, than the E-510 must be placed near the top of your list.”

Sony Alpha have reviewed the new 12 megapixel Sony Alpha A700 Digital SLR – it’s the second model released by Sony, after the A100 was released after the take-over of the Konica Minolta digital SLR division, and as such is the new version of the 7D. The A700 features a 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, alpha lens mount, a weather resistant body, super steady shot (anti-shake sensor), dust reduction system, 5fps, 11 point focus, 3″ screen, and dynamic range optimiser. The A700 is available for £889 with kit lens:

“If the trend with many digital SLR cameras has been towards making them more compact, with the Alpha 700, Sony is resolutely taking a much more traditional approach to SLR design. Unlike the A100, the A700 is a big camera and has a hefty weight that makes it more comparable to larger, pro SLRs, which is exactly where Sony wants it.”

Fujifilm FinePix have reviewed the new Fujifilm FinePix S5800 – a new ultra zoom digital camera from Fujifilm – it’s and 8 megapixel update to the Fujifilm S5700 / S700. It features a 10x optical zoom lens, an 8 megapixel sensor, a 2.5″ screen, XD and SD card slots, and ISO upto 1600 (to help combat image blur). The S5800 is available for £149, while the S5700 is available for £111 (making it one of the cheapest ultra zooms currently available).

“If you are looking for a more straightforward super zoom digital camera at a reasonable price then the Fuji Finepix S5800 is worth considering. It is not the best digital camera ever made, but it is also a long way from being the worst. Therefore if you are looking for a longer lens and lower price tag then add this one to your shortlist. “

Pentax Optio Z10Photography BLOG have reviewed the new Pentax Optio Z10 – an ultra compact 8 megapixel digital camera, it features a 7x optical zoom lens, digital shake reduction, face recognition, a sliding lens cover, 2.5″ screen and ISO upto 3200. The Optio Z10 is available for £167:

“The Pentax Optio Z10 is a fairly unremarkable point and shoot camera with the obvious attraction of a 7x zoom lens that covers every focal length from moderate wide-angle to sports-shooter telephoto. It’s a really great addition to such a compact camera, and you’ll never go back to a “standard” 3x zoom model after trying out the versatile Z10.”

Canon Powershot A720 ISTrusted Reviews have reviewed the new 8 megapixel Canon Powershot A720 IS – an update to the A710 and A700 – it features a 6x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation, a 2.5″ screen, DIGIC III processor, and ISO upto 1600. The A720 IS is available for £139:

“The Canon PowerShot A720 IS is an ideal camera for anyone who wants a bit more creative control than most pocket compacts can provide, and would be an excellent choice for anyone who wants to learn more about photography. Build quality, design and performance are all first rate, image quality is superb and the range of features is hard to match at the price.”

Canon Powershot SX100 ISPhotography BLOG have reviewed the new 8 megapixel Canon Powershot SX100 IS – it features a 10x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation, a 2.5″ screen, DIGIC III processor, 1cm macro mode, pop-up flash, and ISO upto 1600. The SX100 is available for £192

“In fact overall the SX100 IS adds up to one of the more competent performers out there in this price bracket, boasting just the sort of shot-to-shot reliability you want when it’s potentially being passed around everyone from little Agnes to Grandma. I was expecting a performance that was OK and was pleasantly surprised when the Canon PowerShot SX100 IS exceeded it.”
