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.
