Maginon SZ 24

ALDI in the UK, are selling the Maginon SZ 24 (from the same group as TEVION and TRAVELER), a compact camera with a 24x optical zoom lens equivalent to 25-600mm, 16 megapixel CCD sensor, 720p video, 3inch screen, optical image stabilisation, ISO64-ISO1600, pop-up flash, it uses USB charging and a lithium-ion battery and comes with a 4GB SD card, and is priced at £119. Full details can be found on the Maginon website.

Buyers of the Maginon SZ 24 have complained about the short battery life – averaging around 100 shots – although the battery can easily be replaced by a higher power unit from ebay (or elsewhere).

Olympus sell a very similar camera to this, the Olympus SZ-15, with roughly the same specifications, priced at £129 from Amazon UK, although you don’t get a free memory card with it. Or there’s a 14 megapixel version, the Olympus SZ-14, available for £119 from Amazon UK available in a number of different colours, and there’s even a deal where you can get a free case and 8GB SD card all for £119. Most reviews of the Olympus SZ-14 are quite positive, and there is a more detailed Olympus SZ-14 review here. Nice. PS – There’s a Casio version too, the Casio Exilim EX-H50, but that’s only available shipped from Japan.

Nikon announced two new Digital SLRs in the last couple of months, including the Nikon D610, and Nikon D5300, both with 24 megapixel sensors, the D610 a full-frame Digital SLR, the D5300 an APS-C sensor camera with no optical low pass filter, built in GPS, and Wi-Fi. You can read a review of the Nikon D610 at ePHOTOzine, where they say:

“For the cynical, this is the camera that the D600 should have been, with seemingly no sensor issues (we took over 3000 shots and could not see any problems), or for the not so cynical, this is a slight update on an already excellent camera.”

They’ve also published sample photos from the Nikon D5300 here, as well as a review of the Voigtlander 28mm f/2.8 Color Skopar SL II SLR wide-angle Nikon mount lens.

Update: Not long after I posted this, Nikon announced the new “retro” Nikon Df Digital SLR with classic styling, manual controls with external dials, a 16 megapixel full-frame sensor, and compatibility with older Nikon lenses, it will be available in black or black/silver with a price of around £2800 with 50mm f/1.8 lens.
