Kodak Easyshare C663 Review - Imaging Resource

Jun 23, 2006 | Category: Kodak Easyshare C663

Based on ease of use alone, Kodak’s EasyShare digital cameras are a beginning photographer’s dream. While that simplicity has long been Kodak’s hallmark, some of its latest models have been upping the ante with new features and functions not seen on entry-level models.

The Kodak Easyshare C663 is a good example of a camera with some kick. Offering a substantial 6-megapixel sensor, a sharp Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 3x optical zoom lens, good color and accurate skin tones, increased manual control and Kodak Perfect Touch technology — which is new to Kodak’s digital cameras and is designed to improve brightness in the shadow areas of images without blowing out the highlights — the Kodak C663 is definitely not your father’s entry-level digital camera. For the most part, these improvements are a great upgrade, putting the Kodak C663 in the same league as cameras like Canon’s hugely popular A-Series which have done a great job of balancing ease-of-use with advanced control.

Canon Powershot S3 IS Review - Digital Camera Info

Jun 23, 2006 | Category: Canon Powershot S3 IS

The Canon PowerShot S3 IS comes to the ultra-zoom digital camera market with a unique set of features. It has the 12x optical zoom lens that qualifies it as part of the ultra-zoom market and couples it with an optical image stabilization system that works incredibly well.

Canon put the lens on a chunky SLR-shaped body that looks almost professional with its black finish. The S3 has lots of options in its movie mode that aren’t available on any other digital camera and includes dual recording buttons so users can snap full-resolution pictures in the middle of a video clip. The optical zoom functions in the movie mode - and even looks smooth with the image stabilization system activated. Users can adjust everything from the audio sampling rate to the microphone level and wind filter feature. The still recording features are just as extensive.

Full manual control is available, although the manual focusing feature is difficult to execute with the poor viewfinder and LCD resolution.

Nikon Coolpix S5 Review - Imaging Resource

Jun 23, 2006 | Category: Nikon Coolpix S5

Though it might not lead the pack based on image quality alone, the Nikon Coolpix S5 has a lot going for it in a camera this small.

For starters, the Nikon S5’s svelte metallic chassis is one of the thinnest I’ve used, making it the perfect camera to slip into your pocket and forget about until you’re ready to take pictures.

Along with being thin, the camera boasts a distinctive wave-like design that’s less than a inch thick on the right side, providing a convenient handgrip. The left half of the camera has a slight ripple to house the impressive 3x optical Nikkor ED glass lens which does not protrude from the body even at full zoom. The majority of the rear of the Nikon S5 is taken up by the camera’s nice 2.5-inch LCD which produces great playback and live preview thanks to the screen’s 230,000 pixels.

Canon IXUS 800 IS/ Powershot SD700 IS Review - Megapixel

The image quality of the Canon IXUS 800 IS / PowerShot SD700 IS is nothing short of excellent.

Three levels of JPEG compression are available to record images, and the level that applies the least compression, and therefore guarantees the highest image quality, is the Superfine setting. Set to this compression level, the IXUS 800 IS / SD700 IS yields images that show no loss of detail, and subtle colours can be detected in both sky and foliage. Moreover, the Fine image quality, a compression level that yields file sizes that are half of those in the Superfine mode, offers an image quality that is often hard to differentiate from the Superfine level.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2 Review - Cameras.co.uk

Jun 21, 2006 | Category: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2

In terms of features the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2 offers a lot for a low priced digital camera. In fact at the time of writing the review it is the cheapest digital camera by some way to offer image stabilisation.

The high angle LCD screen function is also useful. Picture quality is very good on the whole and the only real downside is shutter lag. The DMC LS2 is well worth considering.
