Canon Powershot S100 review by Ken Rockwell

It will be interesting to see how the S100 will hold against the onslaught of other prosumer cameras available or just announced. This field is quickly becoming as saturated as the digicam or bridge camera segment. . . . read more

Canon Powershot G1 X high iso analysis and print quality @ IR

Imaging Resource has updated its vast preview of the Powershot G1 X with with print quality iso crop analysis. The G1 X is being compared to the Canon G12, Canon T3i, Olympus E-P3, Nikon J1, and Sony NEX-5N. Guess what camera comes on top?  . . . read more

Updated Canon G1 X hands-on review with video @ Tech Radar

"In a change from the control arrangement of the Canon G12, the exposure compensation dial of the G1 X sits under the exposure mode dial on the top-plate. On the G12, this space is occupied by the sensitivity (ISO) control.  . . . read more

Canon Powershot G1X gets DXO marked, on of the best aps-c cameras so far.

'So far' until the Fujifilm X-Pro1 gets the DXO treatment of course, that camera can look at a full framer right in the eye.  Quick notes: It trumps

the Nikon 1 system by far and large, every m43 camera except for the Panasonic GX1, and in turn gets trampled on by both Sony NEXes and every current aps-c DSLR:

Panasonic TZ30 (ZS20) hands-on review @ Tech Radar

It may LOOK similar to the TZ20 it is replacing, but the differences under the hood are anything but subtle: Useable ISO @ 1600 despite the rising to 14 megapixels, better image stabilization, full manual controls, 20x zoom (starting at 24mm), very quick response times and more, well this baby deserves a place into both the 'superzoom' and 'prosumer' tags:

Panasonic releases new Travel Zoom TZ30 / SZ20 with 20x Leica lens, usable 1600 ISO

 

The competition gets a lot tougher in the Travel Zoom category with this little gem. Among other treats, it promises very fast response/af times, a 20X Leica lens starting at 24mm, usable 1600 ISO (this, i really want to see), a 10 fps burst mode, and much more. Panasonic also promises the usual headache to all Panny fans out there by giving this camera (too) different names: TZ30 in Euroland and SZ20 in Am'rica. Pricing

Sony announces trio of Cybershot cameras, ups the race to 18 megapixels

Two of the new cams are just 'me too' digicams, and as such, WE won't bother with them. The one (DSC-TX200V) that stands out however, is a different kind of beast, a shiny, glass covered hipster beast. . . . read more

Ricoh GR Digital IV Review: A Field Report by Jeff Damron

50 Greatest cameras of all time @ Photography Monthly

Photography Monthly just published its '50 greatest cameras of all time' for the second year in a row. It is a fair mix of pro and peoples cameras, the wacky and the serious. The only spoiler we'll provide is the thumbnail to the left, a nice crunchy brownie. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-S1 review @ Neocamera

Remember that Fujifilm superzoomer with a larger than usual 2/3" sensor? Time has come for it to meet its first reviewer, and the verdict is 'excellent':

"The Fuji X-S1 is defined by a combination of its unique mechanical lens and a larger-than-usual sensor. The optical zoom range with built-in

Canon Powershot G1X review @ Photoreview.au

Will Canon ever release a compact camera system? Yes, they pretty much have to. In the meantime they stuffed an aps-c sensor in some oversized g12ish body, and came up with this:

Sony CyberShot DSC-HX9V review @ TechRadar

We don't normally cover point'n shooters, but this one claims "a DSLR-like performance"  Gavin Stoker from TR tries to find out:

 

"Most effective is Sweep Panorama mode, which automatically generates a single elongated image as an MPO image file, viewable in its fullest . . . read more

Nikon P7100 review @ Imaging-Resource

"Overall, however, the Nikon P7100 feels more evolutionary than revolutionary. But that's not really a bad thing. The camera still only offers 720p HD -- not full 1080p HD -- and if you put the P7100 side-by-side with the previous model (or the Canon G12, for that matter), you'd be hard . . . read more

Nikon Coolpix P7100 Review @ Imaging-Resource

"There are upgrades and there are updates, and the Nikon P7100 seems more like a much-needed update to a camera that was great, but not quite up to its full potential. The P7100 delivers greater speed where it's needed, and the optical and image quality are about where you'd . . . read more

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 Review @ DCR

"The GX1 features the micro four thirds lens mount and sensor, in this case a 16 megapixel live MOS sensor and Venus Engine processor. The camera has a 160-12800 ISO sensitivity range, and as with all Four Thirds/Micro Four Thirds system cameras a 2x crop factor . . . read more

Ricoh GR Digital IV Review @ Cnet.Asia

"The GRD IV's understated, black appearance coupled with a fine, pebbled-texture finish covering the entire chassis gives the camera a professional feel. There's a texturized rubber padding on both the grip and thumbrest, which makes the camera grippier, offering a more secure . . . read more

Leica D-Lux 5 Titanium review @ TechRadar

Always keep in mind that you can have 2 identical Panasonics for the price of one Leica digicam. :)

"The compact camera also captures 1280 x 720 pixels video at 30 frames per second (fps) in a choice of AVCHD or Motion JPEG formats, with a dedicated red record button above and to the right of the top plate.  . . . read more

Fujifilm x10 gets DXOmarked, still looks good!

For a camera, this is like getting a Bar Mitzvah :)

"The X10’s results are really good for its category. It achieves scores close to 1/2 stop better than the Fuji F600. Its Color depth (20.5) and dynamic range (11.3 Evs) remain in the same range as the best camera in this segment (Canon Powershot G12 or PowerShot S100). . . . read more

Fujifilm X-S1 hands-on review @ DCI

"Superzooms are treated like overpowered point-and-shoots, the happy medium between pocket cameras and DSLRs in terms of price and target audience. But they don’t make everybody happy. There are photo enthusiasts (not many, to be honest) who own a nice DSLR but would fork over . . . read more

Fujifilm x10 review @ Neocamera

"The Fuji Finepix X10 is truly an excellent digital camera. It shows a very good image quality, matching the best small sensor models and only lagging behind cameras with much larger sensors and more expensive price tags. Images show little noise, excellent metering, nice colors and . . . read more

Canon S100 review @ PDNonline

"I only wish the S100 was faster. All around, it felt a tick quicker than the S95 but nothing dramatic—and that camera as well as its predecessor was notoriously slow. It took the S100 nearly 2.5 seconds to start up, extend its 5x lens and be ready to take a picture. That’s actually slower than . . . read more

Canon PowerShot G1 X review page added @ TDP

Canon Powershot S100 review @ Thewreviews

"I never thought I'd say this about a little camera, but the S100 is actually a viable choice for low-light photography. The photo above is a quarter of the original frame, although still massively downsized; here is a version that's about 50%. It clearly has some issues, but it was taken at . . . read more

Polaroid Announces the SC1630 Smart Camera Powered by Android

Canon PowerShot S100 @ MacWorld

"At its core, the S100 offers an all-encompassing range of manual options for experienced photographers, as well as easy-to-use automatic modes for more-casual shooters. Because it covers so many bases, it’s a great option for those who want to use it as a learning tool, as well as for shutterbugs who simply want to point, shoot, and come away with outstanding-looking images. . . . read more
