Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F3.5 Fisheye

Jun 30, 2005 | Category: News, Olympus

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F3.5 FisheyeOlympus Imaging Corporation (President: Masaharu Okubo) is pleased to announce the introduction of the “ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 8mm F3.5 Fisheye”, the first fixed-focal fisheye lens in the ZUIKO DIGITAL series. The new lens will go on sale in January 2006.

ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses, designed specifically for use with digital SLR cameras, comply with the Four Thirds System, and are able to exploit the full power of the CCD in the E-1 launched in 2003 and E-300 introduced in December 2004.

The “ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 8mm (*16mm) F3.5 Fisheye” has a 180º field of view diagonal to the image sensor. This high-performance lens is perfect for photographers wishing to enjoy the special creative possibilities, including powerful deformation effects that can be achieved with a fisheye lens.

Another feature of this lens is its super-close-up focusing capability, allowing photography as close as 2cm from the lens front to the subject. This ability to approach the subject aggressively is essential to the creation of images with exaggerated perspective effects.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS Review - Imaging Resource

Jun 30, 2005 | Category: Canon PowerShot S2 IS

Canon PowerShot S2 ISThe Canon S2 IS accommodates a wide range of users with its variable level of exposure control. Experienced shooters will appreciate the Manual, Aperture Priority, and Shutter Priority modes, while novices will find the Auto, Program AE, and Scene modes useful. With a full range of creative effects, the added attraction of 12x zoom Canon optics, and optical image stabilization - a feature found on only a handful of digital cameras, most of them more expensive, the Canon S2 IS will feature prominently on the shopping lists of photographers looking for a long-zoom camera. A big part of the story of the Canon S2 IS though, has to do with its movie capability: Not only can it record at 640×480 pixels and 30 frames/second, but you can use the zoom lens while recording movies (a surprising rarity), and it records stereo sound. All in all, the Canon S2 IS is quite a package, with an amazing range of capabilities and good picture quality, all at an affordable price.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 Review - TrustedReviews

Jun 29, 2005 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200The DSC-P200 is Sony’s entrant into the relatively new market sector of seven megapixel snapshot cameras, competing alongside Canon’s IXUS 700, Nikon’s CoolPix 7900, the Olympus C-70, the Samsung Digimax V700 and the Casio Exilim EX-Z750 among others. Sales in this sector have been disappointing so far this year, so manufacturers are under pressure to come up with something really special, and in this respect the P200 is an impressive contender. For just £224 it delivers blistering performance, outstanding image quality and a comprehensive list of features that must have the competition seriously worried. At that price it’s cheaper than the Canon, Olympus and Casio, and only slightly more expensive than the Nikon or Samsung, plus it offers a lot of camera for the money.

Casio Exilim EX-Z750 Review - DigitalCameraReview

Jun 29, 2005 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z750

Casio Exilim EX-Z750Casio’s newest digicam is a precision built imaging tool that absolutely radiates class. It reminds me of the iconic Rollei 35S and the sexy little Contax T2 film cameras. The Casio Exilim EX Z750 is a seven-megapixel digital camera that’s small enough to be dropped in a shirt pocket and tough enough to go just about anywhere. It’s very fast (across the board), has better battery life than the Energizer bunny, and is almost infinitely tweakable.
