Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 Review at Camera Labs

Camera Labs has posted a full review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500.  The FX500 is a 10.1 megapixel point & shoot camera with a 5x wide angle lens.  It also features Panasonic’s O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization).

If you’re after a quality compact, the FX500 will fit the bill, although it’s not got what it takes to turn the heads of real enthusiasts from models like the Canon G9.

Nikon Coolpix S600 Review at Neocamera

Neocamera has published a review of the Nikon Coolpix S600.  The S600 is a 10 megapixel point and shoot digital camera.  It features a 4x optical zoom, Nikon’s VR image stabilization and a sensitivity range up to ISO 3200.

The Coolpix S600 turns out to be a camera with slightly above average image quality but slow performance in critical areas like shot-to-shot speeds and focusing. The user-interface and menu system are easy to navigate but strangely organized and require more button-presses than usual.

Olympus E-420 Review at Let’s Go Digital

Let’s Go Digital has posted a full review of the new and tiny (for DSLRs) Olympus E-420.

The extremely compact FourThirds DSLR had some help from its predecessors, however, the improvements carried out in particular to the image sensor, leave behind a positive feeling. FourThirds has proven itself in practice and it is a true joy to shoot with the Olympus E-420.

Nikon Coolpix P80 Review at Steve’s Digicams

Steve’s Digicams has posted a review of the Nikon Coolpix P80.  The new P80 boasts a 10.1 megapixel image sensor, Nikon’s EXPEED processing and vibration reduction on a whopping 18x optical zoom lens.  The P80’s 18x Zoom-NIKKOR lens covers focal lengths from 27-486mm (35mm format equivalent).

While loaded with appealing features like the 18x Nikkor zoom, 2.7-inch LCD, high resolution EVF, Vibration Reduction, High ISO capabilities and great image quality, the slower shooting performance, uncomfortable EVF eye piece, amount of noise in high sensitivity photos and slower Face detection system really disappointed us.

Nikon Coolpix S600 Review at Cnet

Cnet has posted a review of the Nikon CoolPix S600.  The S600 is a 10 megapixel point and shoot digital camera.  It features a 4x optical zoom, Nikon’s VR image stabilization and a sensitivity range up to ISO 3200.  Cnet gave it a 6.6 out of 10.

A good, though not outstanding, compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix S600 is hindered by some shortcomings in its performance and operation.
