Epson PhotoPC L-500V Review - PC Magazine

Apr 11, 2005 | Category: Epson PhotoPC L-500V

Epson PhotoPC L-500VEpson is known for one thing above all: printers. If the company can maintain the standards set by its Epson L-500V, digital cameras will be another feather in its cap. This 5-megapixel entry-level compact camera captures very good-looking images, and its large screen really lends itself to showing off your pictures.

The L-500V’s attractive black metal body withstands some knocking around, and the f/2.8 to f/4.9, 5.6- to 16.8-mm (34 to 102 mm in 35-mm equivalent) 3X optical zoom lens retracts and covers itself when the camera isn’t in use. A slight protrusion on the front face of the camera helps you to keep it stabilized when shooting with one hand.

Epson R-D1 Review - The Digital Journalist

Apr 02, 2005 | Category: Epson R-D1

Epson R-D1Pros: Epson R-D1 combines the intuitive operation of a classic rangefinder camera with high-quality digital capture; solidly constructed. Cons: 1.5X focal-length conversion factor limits widest angle of view to 42mm (35mm-equivalent) unless an external accessory (hotshoe-mounted) viewfinder is used. Bottom Line: Dream camera for range-finder-using documentary and street photographers who want to go digital.

Epson R-D1 Review - Luminous Landscape

Apr 01, 2005 | Category: Epson R-D1

Epson R-D1 know several very experienced photographers who have bought an Epson R-D1, and who love it. I’m told of one fine-art photographer who has sold all his Canon DSLR gear in favour of the simplicity of the R-D1 and a few lenses. I can well understand this.

As serious photographers each of us has our own style, needs and preferences. Though I spent decades working with M Leicas, the current Epson / Cosina digital iteration of this breed turns out not to be for me. My reasons why are only partially explained by some of my beefs above, and frankly most of them are minor.

It simply turns out though that even after a period of intensive use and many hundreds of frames, I couldn’t bond with this camera. I had the opportunity to continue to work with it for a longer period, and I have access to other M-mount lenses, but in the end I returned the review sample after a couple of weeks with my thanks, but no regrets.

Epson PhotoPC L-500V Review - CNET Reviews

Mar 31, 2005 | Category: Epson PhotoPC L-500V

Epson PhotoPC L-500VWith so many sub-$400 digital cameras flooding the market, it’s starting to feel like a plague of locusts. How do you know which one to buy, given that the quality of these is quite good now? One strategy is to look for a few key features that make a camera stand out from the crowd. Epson’s L-500V has many of the usual specs for a $400 model: a 5-megapixel sensor, a 3X zoom, an SD card slot, a continuous-shooting mode, and a small collection of scene modes. It also has one stand-out feature: the best LCD screen we’ve seen on a digital camera. The big, bright, high-resolution display should make the Epson a hit with families and friends who want to immediately share the fun. While the LCD will wow even the most hardened of professionals, the L-500V’s performance and photo quality don’t follow through on the promise.

Epson PhotoPC L-500V Review - Pocket-lint

Mar 22, 2005 | Category: Epson PhotoPC L-500V

Epson PhotoPC L-500VThe Epson L-500V is great easy to use compact model that boasts enough resolution and image quality for prints up to A4 and over. The large screen is not unique on such digital cameras, but the high-resolution Photo Fine technology is a standout feature and helps make the camera joy to use. Basic control options take some of the gloss off, but anyone looking for a neat point-and-shoot digital camera would do far worse than having a closer look at this little beauty.
