Fujifilm FinePix F480NeoCamera have reviewed the new Fujifilm FinePix F480 – The F480 is an 8 megapixel digital camera with a wide angle 4x optical zoom lens (28 – 112mm equiv) it features a 2.7″ screen, digital image stabilistion, ISO upto 800, Xd / SD card support, and 320 x 240 30fps video support. The Fujifilm FinePix F480 is available in black or silver for £97:

“The Fuji Finepix F480 is a very basic point-and-shoot digital camera with a wide-angle lens. Its 8 megapixels sensor and 4X optical zoom are just a bit more than the average ultra-compact, but it offers much less control than most cameras in its class. Even its low resolution movie-mode is quite dated.”

Fujifilm FinePix F50fdTrusted Reviews have reviewed the new Fujifilm FinePix F50fd – The F50fd is a 12 megapixel update to the F40fd, F30, and F10, and features a 12 megapixel 1/ 1.6-inch Super CCD HR sensor, 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.7″ screen, digital and mechanical image stabilistion (CCD sensor shift), ISO upto 1600 (at 12mp), 3200 (at 6mp), and 6400 at 3mp, Xd / SD card support, face detection, infra red port, and VGA 30fps video support. The Fujifilm FinePix F50fd is available for £142

“While the F50fd is by no means a bad camera, and indeed it performs as well as any of the other 12MP compacts on the market while undercutting most of them on price, it has lost the low-light, high-ISO advantage of the F31fd and F40fd.”

Casio Exilim EX-V8DCResource have reviewed the new Casio Exilim EX-V8, an update to the Casio Exilim EX-V7 it features face detection, 8.1 megapixel sensor, a 7x optical zoom lens, best shot scene modes, anti-shake DSP, CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism, new High-quality movies using the H.264 standard, and YouTube video mode. The Casio Exilim V8 is available for £184:

“The Casio Exilim EX-V8 is a unique camera, packing a 7X zoom lens into a body no larger than your typical Digital ELPH. It has more than its share of flaws, but if you can live with them, it’s a pretty good travel camera. While I’m not jumping up and down about it, I definitely think the EX-V8 is worth a look.”

“The Olympus SP-560UZ is an extremely accomplished camera, and more than makes up for its slightly disappointing predecessor. Outstanding design and handling, good performance and a huge degree of versatility make it a superb tool for the keen hobbyist. Image quality is at least as good as its main rivals, and the inclusion of RAW mode means that you can get the best from your photos.”

Nikon D300DCResource have reviewed the new Nikon D300 Digital SLR – it features a 12.3 megapixel sensor, 6 fps (8 fps with optional battery) shooting, dust reduction, live view modes, 3″ screen, weather resistant seals, and ISO upto 3200. The D300 is available from Amazon for £1099:

“When Nikon announced the D300, the digital photography world stood up and took notice. When people call the D300 a “baby D3″, they’re not kidding. The D300 has nearly the exact same feature set, but with an APS-C / DX-format sensor instead of a full-frame one. That means you get the super-fast performance of the EXPEED image processor, live view on a brilliant 3-inch LCD display, a 51-point autofocus system, dust reduction, full manual controls, and the expandability that you’d expect on a Nikon SLR.”
