Samsung ST550

It’s that time of the year again, the time for hundred of lists that tell you what’s the best, and what’s the worst, this one from Business Week is quite entertaining, it names the Samsung ST550 (shown above), as one of the best digital cameras of the year, along with the Panasonic Lumix GF1. The Samsung ST550 is available for £212 from Amazon UK. They also name the Polaroid Two – Instant Digital Camera (shown below) as one of the worst:

Polaroid Instant Digital

At £149 the Polaroid Instant Digital Camera seems expensive as it only has a 5 megapixel camera (with no optical zoom and dubious image quality), and you’d probably be much better buying any budget camera, and buying the Poloroid Pogo Instant Printer instead, priced at only £23!

Panasonic Lumix GF1

Cameralabs has reviewed the new Panasonic Lumix GF1 Micro Four Thirds DSLR – the camera features a 12.1 megapixel live view sensor, HD 720p Video at 30fps, 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, 1:1 aspect ratio, AF assist lamp, ISO100 – 3200, 3fps shooting, 3.0″ 3:2 aspect 460k pixel screen, dust reduction, and built in flash. Compared to the Olympus E-P1 – It lacks the in body image stablisation, and instead relies on optical IS in the lens. The camera is available in Black, Silver, Red and White, for £619 with kit lens, or £449 body only.

“The new Lumix GF1 departs from the mini-DSLR-styling of the earlier G1 and GH1, instead adopting a relatively compact form factor. Like the Olympus E-P1 before it, the GF1 therefore delivers the combination of large sensor, interchangeable lenses and portability which enthusiasts have been requesting for years. It may still be fairly chunky compared to a typical compact, but is considerably smaller and lighter than a DSLR, especially when fitted with a thin pancake prime lens, like Panasonic’s 20mm f1.7 model.”
