Samsung Digimax L85 Review - T3

Jul 07, 2006 | Category: Samsung Digimax L85

The Samsung Digimax L85’s eight-megapixel sensor enables you to print up to A3 though pictures are pretty average. Edges can be soft, but colours are strong. There’s no optical stabilizer, though, so be wary of camera shake.

A full range of manual and automatic scene settings are available and there are also various effects built in, although they’re of dubious benefit. The LCD’s bright enough indoors and out. The generous 5x optical zoom is quick.

Olympus Stylus 720 SW Review - T3

Jul 07, 2006 | Category: Olympus Stylus 720 SW

Image quality is pretty damn good for a compact. Even at maximum size, photos have waves of colour and plenty of detail. The flash is strong, but perhaps not powerful enough for serious underwater shooting.

Nevertheless, Olympus Stylus 720 SW’s combination of SAS levels of toughness and performance make it a real contender.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 - CNET Asia

Jul 07, 2006 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100

Even though there’s no option to custom set white balance on this camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 still churned out decent images.

Noise was reasonably controlled up to ISO 400, but at ISO 800 and ISO 1,250, you would be making only small prints at best. Still, the W100 proved to be one of the better-faring cameras when it came to noise at ISO 400.

Overall, our images were well-exposed with purple fringing only moderately affecting some of our heavily backlit pictures. Barrel distortion was kept to a minimal. Colors were also rich and saturated which we liked.

Fujifilm FinePix A400 Review - Cameras.co.uk

Jul 07, 2006 | Category: Fujifilm FinePix A400

Taking into account the low price of the Fujifilm FinePix A400 it is understandable that allowances need to be made in certain areas for this camera.

I am disappointed by the quality of the photos I managed to take with this camera. Looking at the outdoor scenic shots there are three major issues I have with the camera. The first and most important one is the lack of sharp focus to each of the shots. The next problem is that the camera is unable to cope with the light surfaces of the boats. Another worrying issue is that purple fringing is evident along the edges of bright objects where they are caught by the sun.

Kodak Easyshare V610 Review - T3

Jul 07, 2006 | Category: Kodak Easyshare V610

The focal length of the first lens ranges from 38-114mm, while the other zooms it all the way from 130-380mm. The transition between the two isn’t totally smooth, but it’s bearable. While the big zoom is great, it’s hard to keep such a small camera steady at maximum zoom, while the anti-blur feature is no match for the optical stabiliser on rival models.

Overall, Kodak Easyshare V610’s image quality is fine. You’ll find that highlights occasionally get blown out and detail can be a little soft around the edges, but nothing awful. You can increase the sensitivity to ISO 800 for low-light shooting.
