From the monthly archives: "October 2008"

We’ve just uploaded several sample photos from the new Sony Ericsson Cybershot C905 Mobile Phone with 8.1 megapixel digital camera – the camera phone features a real “Xenon” flash, autofocus lens, face detection, a 2.4″ VGA screen, GPS (with photo tagging) and WiFi. We will be publishing a review of the phones ability as a camera shortly, but in the meantime, feel free to have a look at my first impressions of the Sony C905.

Samsung L310wTrusted Reviews have reviewed the new Samsung L310w – it features a 13.6 megapixel sensor, a wide angle 3.6x optical zoom lens, a 2.7″ screen and face, blink and smile detection. The camera is available in black, silver and pink for £177

“Although its build-quality, overall performance and especially its low-light focusing are impressive, and the optional manual exposure is a welcome bonus, it’s hard to recommend the L310W as a useful camera based on its unimpressive image quality. There are better cameras with smaller numbers on them, including many from Samsung.”

Canon Powershot G10Photography BLOG have reviewed the new 14.7 megapixel Canon Powershot G10 and compared it to the Nikon Coolpix P6000. The G10 is an update to the G9 – it features a wide angle 5x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, RAW support, 3″ screen, VGA video recording and ISO1600. The Canon G10 is available for £380:

“The Nikon Coolpix P6000 is a good camera, but the Canon PowerShot G10 is better – it’s as simple as that. In terms of both features and handling, the G10 has the edge, and it was invariably the camera that I reached for first. The contest would be a lot closer if the P6000’s unique features – GPS and LAN connectivity – had actually lived up to expectations, but they are both rather weak in their current implementation.”

Canon Powershot SX110 ISSteves Digicams have reviewed the new Canon Powershot SX110 IS – an update to the SX100 IS – the new camera features a more compact body, 9 megapixel sensor, larger 3″ screen, 10x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation, Face Detection, Face Select & Track, Auto Red-Eye Correction, Motion Detection, 20 shooting modes including Easy Mode, and ISO 1600. The SX110 IS is available in silver or black for £182

“Canon has created yet another appealing super-zoom model, with an affordable price tag. While I did have an issue with the amount of noise at higher ISO settings, the camera does have the ability to capture beautiful images; just keep the ISO at 200 and below.”

Canon EOS 50DDPReview have reviewed the new Canon EOS 50D Digital SLR – an update to the 40D – it features a new 15.1 megapixel sensor, 6.3fps shooting, Canon’s latest DIGIC 4 image processor, ISO upto 12800, 3″ screen with live view, sensor cleaning, 9 point AF, and face detection. Body only is available for £879:

“The camera’s performance doesn’t leave anything to complain about either. Power on is as good as instant, the camera is always ready when you need it and it is quite impressive at what speed the huge 15 megapixel files are being written, processed and transferred through the imaging pipeline. Canon’s new DIGIC IV processor certainly pulls its weight.”

Olympus 1050SWCameras.co.uk have reviewed the new Olympus Mju Stylus 1050SW – the ultra compact 10 megapixel camera is waterproof to 3m, shockproof to 1.5m, freezeproof to -10c, and features a 3x optical zoom lens, face detection, shadow adjustment, perfect shot preview, and 2.7″ screen. It is available in black, gold, silver, pink and blue for £209

“Without doubt the main attraction of the Olympus MJU 1050SW is its robustness. If you are looking for a family camera or just one you can use around the pool and on ski slopes then the picture quality is fine for snapshots. It is a concern that the camera is so slow to take a photo and this could certainly cause you to miss photo opportunities.”

Canon EOS 50DDigital Camera Info have reviewed the new Canon EOS 50D Digital SLR – an update to the 40D – it features a new 15.1 megapixel sensor, 6.3fps shooting, Canon’s latest DIGIC 4 image processor, ISO upto 12800, 3″ screen with live view, sensor cleaning, 9 point AF, and face detection. Body only will be available for £899:

“The Canon EOS-50D is a solid incremental upgrade from the 40D. It doesn’t have any dramatic new features, delivers a gorgeous LCD, 15-megapixel resolution, an improved live view mode, and burst mode at a speedy 6.3 frames per second. However, we were unimpressed by the merely average results in our lab testing, where the 50D consistently scored on par or worse than both its predecessor and the much less expensive Canon XSi.”

Canon Powershot G10Luminous Landscape have reviewed the new 14.7 megapixel Canon Powershot G10 and compared it to the Nikon Coolpix P6000. The G10 is an update to the G9 – it features a wide angle 5x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, RAW support, 3″ screen, VGA video recording and ISO1600. The Canon G10 is available for £380:

“The net of this comparison is that while the Nikon P6000 is a fine little camera, it finds itself in the unfortunate position of being released at the same time as the Canon G10, which it would appear is an attempt by Canon to produce a full-featured pocket camera with the highest quality that they are capable of. In this they appear to have succeeded, unlike with last year’s G9, which was a decent camera, but which didn’t seem to be a whole-hearted effort on Canon’s part.”

Fuji F60fdDigital Camera Info have reviewed the new Fujifilm FinePix F60fd – an update to the F50fd – the camera features a 12 megapixels sensor, 3x optical zoom lens, image stabilisation sensor, ISO 1600, new 3″ screen, face detection, full manual controls, and scene recognition mode. The FinePix F60fd is available for £168

“There are several points in the Fujfilm FinePix F60fd’s favor, notably good image sharpness at 12 megapixels, a wide selection of preset shooting modes, the Natural plus Flash capability that automatically combines a photo with flash with an available light shot, and a nice 3-inch display at a reasonable $299 price.”

Nikon P80NeoCamera have reviewed the new Nikon Coolpix P80 Ultra Zoom digital camera – it features a wide angle 18x optical zoom lens (27-486mm equivalent), 10 megapixel sensor, sensor-shift vibration reduction, 2.7″ screen, ISO6400, 1cm macro mode, and Distortion control corrects for barrel distortion. The Nikon Coolpix P80 is available for £240:

“It is fun to have a stabilized wide-angle 18X optical zoom lens. It is even more fun when it fits in a coat pocket or small pouch. This is truly what the Nikon Coolpix P80 is about. While it performs reasonably in some areas, and the lens is good for such a long range, this ultra-zoom has image quality problems which are hard to ignore given the competition.”
