Olympus EVOLT E-400 Review - Digital Camera Info

Oct 04, 2006 | Category: Olympus Evolt E-400

Timing can be very important. If the Olympus Evolt E-400 had been introduced two years ago, in the place of the E-300, it would have been very impressive to see all its features in such a small package.

It would have made the Four Thirds format look like the next big thing. Small, high-resolution, not ugly, with dust control - it appears much more exciting than the E-300.

Canon PowerShot G7 Review - DigitaCameraInfo

Oct 04, 2006 | Category: Canon Powershot G7

The high-end G-series got infused with some spunk with the introduction of the Canon Powershot G7; the camera line now has a vast selection of scene modes and color effects.

The Canon PowerShot G7 is a great camera, but the pre-production model had its flaws. The body got very warm after about ten minutes and would probably be able to melt butter (I didn’t test that claim though; I don’t think Canon would appreciate that). The optical viewfinder wasn’t very impressive, nor was the battery life.

The flagship Canon PowerShot G7 has a lot to offer with a new DIGIC III processor and substantial resolution. The camera also packs 25 exposure modes, vast amounts of manual controls and significant flexibility through its hot shoe connection and conversion lens options.

Casio Exilim EX-Z700 Review - DigitalCameraInfo

Oct 04, 2006 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z700

The Casio Exilim EX-Z700 has a lot going for it. The digital camera has 7.2 megapixels and still keeps shutter lag to a minimum. It has a lengthy list of interesting scene modes, which some users will find impressive and others will curse. It takes decent pictures in optimal lighting and its built-in flash has plenty of controls to keep it from whitening foreheads and such.

The pocket-sized camera is easy to transport and its battery lasts an incredible 460 shots per charge. The Casio EX-Z700 isn’t all butterflies and fairies though. Its audio recording capabilities are limited to subjects within a few feet of the camera, its mode dial is nonexistent so users have to enter the lengthy menu system for everything , and a glitch in the playback menu makes the camera look a bit unfinished.

The Casio EX-Z700 isn’t exceptionally impressive, but it is an average camera that takes average pictures - and you can get it at an average price.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 Review - DCRP

Oct 04, 2006 | Category: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 is a midsize camera with three “wide” features. First you have its exclusive 16:9 widescreen, 10.2 Megapixel CCD. Yes, if there’s one thing the original Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 didn’t need, it’s more resolution. Next we have the wide-angle lens, which covers a nice range of 28 - 112 mm. Completing the puzzle is the 2.8″ widescreen LCD, something which was missing on the LX1. I found the LCD easy to see both outdoors and in low light.

The LX2 lacks an optical viewfinder. One of the other standout features on the LX2 is its optical image stabilizer. I found that it works well for both still and video recording. In terms of build quality, the LX2 is well put together. It’s made mostly of metal, and feels solid in your hands. You can buy the LX2 in either silver or black.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Review - DCRP

Oct 04, 2006 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2

While not much of an improvement over its predecessor, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 remains a very good ultra-compact camera, and it earns my recommendation.

It has a nice selection of point-and-shoot features, good photo quality, snappy performance, and a capable movie mode. The DSC-N2 looks just like the Sony DSC-N1 before it, aside from its new champagne gold color. That means that it has a compact metal body, a 3X zoom Zeiss lens, and a huge 3-inch touchscreen LCD. While the touch screen feature is a cool thing to show off to friends, I found that its constant need for cleaning and the clunky touch-based menu system was frustrating.

The LCD’s outdoor visibility was just average, while in low light conditions it was better, as it brightens automatically so you can still see your subject. The N2 lacks an optical viewfinder.
