Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 Review - Lets Go Digital

Jun 27, 2006 | Category: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5

At the end of the tests, the Panasonic Lumix DMC- LZ5 leaves us with a pleasant and particularly positive feeling. For its price-tag, the camera offers the consumer a great deal of ease and functionality.

The novice photographer will undoubtedly feel happy as a king with so much user convenience. It is impressive to see how Panasonic manage to integrate the MEGA O.I.S. into all their digital cameras. This feature is a truly valuable asset of the LUMIX digital camera. The Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 is a superb digital camera for those who consider themselves novice digital photographers, but do desire that little bit extra from the zoom range.

All in all, the Panasonic LZ5 forms an excellent first step to a future advanced camera - and who knows, perhaps even to a future (Panasonic) D-SLR camera?

Fujifilm Finepix F470 Review - Digital Camera Review

Jun 27, 2006 | Category: Fujifilm FinePix F470

When it comes to image quality, Fujifilm Finepix F470 delivers the goods.

Color is bright, vivid, and hue accurate. Skin tones are a little ruddy. Like most consumer digital cameras red and blue are slightly punched up, but not garishly so. White balance is very accurate outdoors, but I did notice a very slight warmish cast in some interior shots.

Images shot at ISO 64 and 100 had extremely low noise levels with balanced contrast and very good shadow and highlight detail. Noise levels start to pick up noticeably at ISO 200, but not objectionably so. ISO 400 images show noticeable noise and some lost detail, but they should be fine for e-mail or 3×5/4×6 prints.

Samsung Digimax S500 Review - CNET

Jun 25, 2006 | Category: Samsung Digimax S500

Samsung calls its S-series cameras point-and-shoots, but these slim snappers offer controls that could help them break away from the usual crop of mindless auto-only cameras.

Before you get your hopes up, we have to warn that the Samsung Digimax S500’s image quality leaves quite a bit to be desired. You’d be better served eschewing the controls offered here and opting for something along the lines of Nikon Coolpix L3, which delivers better image quality and a touch more style for about the same price.

Samsung Digimax S600 Review - CNET

Jun 25, 2006 | Category: Samsung Digimax S600

Measuring 3.8 by 2.4 by 1 inches and weighing just 4.8 ounces, the Samsung Digimax S600 fits nicely in a jacket pocket, and its curved grip makes it easy to hold.

The sparse, silver-and-gray look won’t turn any heads, but isn’t ugly either. Its 3X optical, 35mm-to-105mm (35mm equivalent), f/2.8-to-f/4.9 zoom lens extends outward from the camera front when powered up and retracts when turned off.

Canon Powershot A700 Review - Digital Cameras Blog

Jun 23, 2006 | Category: Canon Powershot A700

Overall Canon Powershot A700 is a pretty decent camera. If you don’t mind the long wait after taking a flash picture or the cheap feel to it, then it really does have some great features.

The 6x optical zoom, the video mode, and the 2.5 inch LCD are all absolutely wonderful. It seems to get in focus really quickly as I never had one problem with the focus taking a while to pick up. It has 20 different shooting modes including portrait, landscape, night scene, snow, indoor, among others.

It does take AA batteries as opposed to a rechargable battery pack, so keep that in consideration.
