Samsung NV24HD Review at PhotographyBLOG

PhotographyBLOG has posted a full review of the Samsung NV24HD.

At the point and shoot level there are more reliable alternatives for its price and headline specification. However, the Samsung NV24HD’s more esoteric features – including the funky photo styles, placed right at the fore of its operation – are indeed fun and less run-of-the-mill than many, meaning it feels churlish to bash this model with too large a stick.

Olympus SP-570 UZ Review at DC Views

DC Views has reviewed the 18x optical zoom Olympus SP-570 UZ.

It can capture nice wide angle shots of landscapes or interiors while the tele lens is long enough to capture that bird on a wire as well. Handling is excellent and image quality is very good. Add to this a good image stabilisation system, shadow adjustment and face detection, and lots of manual control.

Canon Rebel XSi Review at Photography Blog

Canon Rebel XSiPhotographyBLOG has posted a full review of the new 12.2 megapixel Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi. The new Digital Rebel XSi kit comes with an stabilized 18-55mm lens. Canon’s entry-level DSLR now features a 3″ rear LCD panel that’s capable of Live View framing and focusing.

Image quality is on a par with the EOS 400D, with noise-free images up to ISO 800 and a very usable fastest speed of 1600, so usable that I don’t understand why the EOS 450D doesn’t also offer ISO 3200.

Olympus E-420 Review at Camera Labs

Camera Labs has posted a review of the new Olympus E-420 entry-level DSLR.

Indeed while being perfectly suitable as a primary DSLR, the E-420 and pancake lens will equally appeal to those with larger DSLRs looking for a secondary, smaller option – even if they use a different brand. These people may have been considering enthusiasts compacts like the Canon G9 or Sigma DP1, but by going only a little larger they could enjoy a fully-fledged DSLR with the power and flexibility that brings.
