Kodak Easyshare V610 Review - Macworld

Jul 22, 2006 | Category: Kodak Easyshare V610

The 6.1-megapixel Kodak Easyshare V610 is Kodak’s second camera to sport two built-in lenses (the Kodak Easyshare V570 was the first). The V610 has a 130mm-to-380mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto zoom lens that sits atop a 38mm-to-114mm standard zoom lens.

With a long-range 10X optical zoom, Kodak EasyShare V610 can bring the farthest subjects into full, detailed view. Unfortunately, this dual-lens camera also has a propensity for blurred photos at its highest zoom levels, plus disappointingly short battery life.

What makes this camera shine—its zoom, Bluetooth capabilities, and large LCD screen—may be enough to compensate for its shortcomings.

Fujifilm FinePix V10 Review - Macworld

Jul 22, 2006 | Category: Fujifilm FinePix V10

The most striking feature of the compact Fujifilm FinePix V10 digicam is its 3-inch LCD. It’s handy for framing shots and makes viewing images a pleasure. The V10 starts up quickly (in less than a second), and shutter lag was generally minimal in testing.

The V10’s features are simple, with an assortment of six basic—but effective—scene modes. In one unique mode, Natural Light and With Flash, the camera takes two shots in quick succession: one without a flash and the other with a flash. This could be helpful for people who are uncertain about whether or not to use a flash in a tricky lighting situation.

The Fujifilm FinePix V10, shows good exposure accuracy but subpar sharpness and noise at high ISOs. Its big LCD and high ISO settings are nice, but battery life is limited and image quality is average.

Kodak Easyshare P712 Review - PopPhoto

Jul 22, 2006 | Category: Kodak Easyshare P712

Kodak Easyshare P712 is touted as a bridge or hybrid digital SLR camera, joining the Kodak Easyshare P850 in line. It’s aimed at users who are on their 2nd or 3rd digicam and are looking for a more advanced model to take their imaging skills to the next level. The P712 is kind of in the middle of a point-and-shoot and digital SLR—not as compact as a typical compact digital model and somewhat smaller than an SLR. It has quite an expansive optical zoom range: 36-432 mm (35 mm equivalent) f/2.8-3.7, with a Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon lens.

One major problem that you will probably encounter is a lot of noise, which we noticed in a lot of the low-light situations. At ISO 200, we started to experience some noise, and it intensified as we hit a lot more at ISO 400 and beyond.

While there are numerous noise issues with the P712 that might cause some swings and misses, the camera still has a lot to offer. Overall, colors looked sharp and well-saturated, and exposures showed plenty of detail. With a 12X superzoom, image stabilization as well being compatible with the EasyShare system, the EasyShare P712’s a hit on our scorecard.

Nikon D200 Review - Pocket-lint

Jul 22, 2006 | Category: Nikon D200

Overall, the Nikon D200 provides enough kit and control for the most demanding professional or enthusiast snapper.

Image quality is superb with the advanced metering and AF system combining well (albeit with that odd slight underexposure) with nary a shot going astray.

Samsung Digimax S500 Review - CNET Asia

Jul 22, 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.
