Nikon Coolpix P300
ePHOTOzine has reviewed the new Nikon Coolpix P300 (with f1.8 – f4.9 wide angle 4.2x optical zoom lens (24-100mm)), and compared it to the Panasonic Lumix LX5 and Canon Powershot S95, in a comparison of the smallest “serious compact” cameras available. The Nikon Coolpix P300 is available for £254 from Amazon UK

“The introduction of the new Nikon Coolpix P300 is the latest compact camera designed to offer manual controls and improved image quality, yet does it have the image quality to knock the Canon and Panasonic aside? We decided to compare three of the most compact serious cameras to find out how they perform, and what they offer that makes them worth parting with your cold hard cash for.”

Panasonic Lumix LX5

Panasonic has announced the new Panasonic Lumix LX5 – an update to the LX3 – it features a new 24mm wide angle 3.8x optical zoom lens (24-90mm), with f2.0 aperture, 10 megapixel CCD sensor, 3″ screen with 460k pixels, 720p HD video, manual focus, flash hotshoe, EVF support, aspect ratio switch (4:3, 3:2 or 16:9 with 1:1 also available), 400 shot battery life, optical image stabilisation, and supports SD/SDHC/SDXC cards.

“The newly developed, super bright, F2.0 ultra wide angle 24mm LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens minimises distortion for stunning, true-to-life images with outstanding resolution and detail. With the extra advantage of a 24mm wide angle, rare on a compact camera, the LX5 offers an extraordinarily large viewing space and with thanks to an extended optical zoom from 2.5x(60mm) to 3.8x(90mm) even more versatility and opportunity to capture the perfect shot. This advanced lens also makes it easy to produce beautiful photos with pleasing soft-focused background thanks to the shallow depth of field provided by the extra light.”
