Canon Powershot SX110 ISImaging Resource 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 £185

“The Canon SX110 IS manages to pack an optically stabilized 10x zoom lens into a relatively compact body, but its image quality still competes very well with that of full-sized long-zoom cameras. In high ISO shooting, it gives up a little ground to Canon’s own SX10 IS, which uses a more powerful version of Canon’s DIGIC processor, but the Canon SX110 IS’s more compact body is much easier to pack along on outings and trips.”

“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 has turned the DSLR world on its head with the first mirror-less Digital Interchangeable Lens camera that provides pretty much most, if not all, the features serious and advanced photographers have come to expect from a DSLR and, in addition, throw in practical features from the point-and-shoot world that DSLRs are now starting to incorporate. The G1 is both fast, precise and a pleasure to use, featuring Live View the way it is supposed to work.”

Samsung NV34HDMegapixel.net have reviewed the new 14.7 megapixel digital camera called the NV100HD / TL34HD, with a wide angle 3.6x optical zoom lens, and 3″ touch screen. The NV100HD is available for £169

“The quality of images shot with the TL34 were a mixed bag. Outdoor performance was better than indoor performance. Shooting with the built-in flash yielded a variety of results from good images to ones that were washed out. Noise was a problem with indoor photos as well as with images captured at light sensitivity settings over 400.”

Canon SX1 ISCameralabs have reviewed the new 10 megapixel Canon Powershot SX1 IS – it features a wide angle 20x optical zoom lens, optical image stabilisation, ISO1600, a 10 megapixel CMOS sensor which allows HD video recording (1080p), 4fps shooting, HD out, swivel 2.8″ screen. The camera is available for £399

“Canon’s PowerShot SX1 IS has justifiably become one of the most talked-about super-zoom cameras on the market today. It takes the already capable PowerShot SX10 IS with its powerful 20x zoom and articulated screen, but swaps the sensor for a CMOS version which can deliver both HD video recording and fast continuous shooting. As such, the SX1 IS becomes the latest and arguably one of the best hybrid cameras to date, delivering 10 Megapixel stills at up to 4fps with a decent degree of manual control, along with Full HD video in the 1080p format.”

Canon Powershot E1NeoCamera have reviewed the new Canon Powershot E1 – a cute 10 megapixel camera with a 4x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, 2.5″ screen, face detection, motion detection, 17 shooting modes including Easy Mode, Sunset mode and IS0 3200 mode, optical viewfinder. It is available in white, pink, and blue for £143

“Given that the Canon Powershot E1 is a low-cost point-and-shoot camera, it is no surprise that its performance turns out to be average. Certain aspects of its image quality such as color and white-balance accuracy are rather good, while others such as vignetting are not. In terms of speed, the E1 clocks in mostly average times too.”
