Canon EOS 650D
The Canon EOS 650D DSLR has been reviewed at ePHOTOzine as an in-depth 650D review, as well as a 650D user review, the Canon EOS 650D is the latest “entry” to “mid-level” Digital SLR from Canon, and features Full HD video, a swivelling touch screen, hybrid AF designed for better video AF and an 18megapixel sensor. The Canon EOS 650D is available for £613 with kit lens from Amazon UK, and while the auto focus (AF) during videos isn’t as good as it should be, at least it’s a start, perhaps they’ll make it much better on the new model, which no doubt will be called the Canon EOS 700D.

More reviews can be found at: TechDigit (3.5 out of 5 – warning fly close up), Gizmodo AU (says video AF is poor), Photography BLOG (mostly positive), Pocket-Lint (a few blips).

Olympus:
Not a real Digital SLR, but it sure looks and acts like one, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 gets a 2 month user review.

Sony:
The Sony NEX-F3, an entry level mirrorless camera, with interchangeable lenses. Not a Digital SLR either, but it has the image quality to match, in a more compact package.

Sigma:
The Sigma DP2 Merrill is a compact camera, but with an APS-C Foveon sensor straight from the Sigma SD1. Sample photos can be found here.
