  1. Sigma SD14 review

    Sigma SD14 review

    8  

    Sigma has gone out on a bit of a limb with the SD14 SLR and the unorthodox Foveon sensor it contains. The camera has 50 per cent more resolution than the SD9 and SD10 cameras that came before it, but it still only manages to deliver 4.7-megapixel images

    Nikon D40x review

    8  

    The Nikon D40x is neither an upgrade for the 6-megapixel D40 model, nor a replacement for the D80. Instead, it sits slightly uncomfortably between the two models, further expanding Nikon's range of budget and enthusiast SLRs

    Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro review

    9  

    The Finepix S5 Pro's combination of large S-type pixels and smaller R-type pixels offers a dynamic range up to 400 per cent wider than that of conventional sensors. It adds up to a generous total of 12MP...

    Pentax K10D review

    9  

    The last Pentax SLR we reviewed, the K100D, is pleasing enough but disappointing in certain respects. The main issue is that it's cosmetically and technically hard to distinguish from all the Pentax cameras that have gone before

    Nikon D40 review

    There are going to be those who think that Nikon is at best foolish and at worst mad to launch a new digital SLR with only 6 megapixels. But that may just be a measure of how caught up we've all become in the megapixel war

    Olympus E-500 review

    10  

    Olympus has obviously been listening to our gripes, with the E-500 looking like the camera the E-300 should have been all along. With more of a resemblance to the E-1 and a 'proper' digital SLR design, it also comes packed with clever photographic features

    Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro review

    8  

    The FinePix S3 is definitely a camera that will stay the course. If you're looking for a digital camera for sports or action photography look elsewhere, but if it's portraits or weddings you're into, then this could be the one

    Still haven't switched from a film SLR camera to a digital SLR, and you believe you can't be persuaded? Well prepare to be swayed, for you may well change your mind once you see the EOS 20D

    Olympus E-400 review

    8  

    Welcome to the only really new SLR this year. The Nikon D80 is so similar to the D50/D70s that it doesn't really count as a 'new' design, while the Canon EOS 400D is essentially a revamped 350D and the Sony Alpha 00 is a heavily revised Dynax 5D.

    Upping the ante from the original EOS 300D, the newer 350D ushers in a8Mp CMOS sensor, along with Canon's excellent DIGIC II image processingengine. The 350D is also smaller than the 300D...

    How many pixels are enough? That's the question that's most often asked by photographers contemplating the purchase of a digital camera. And can you ever have too many?

    Nikon D80 review

    9  

    Things had become pretty static in the entry-level SLR market. We'd all got used to 6Mp cameras or 8Mp in the case of Canon and Olympus) and the trend seemed to be towards lower prices rather than higher specs.

    Pentax K100D review

    8  

    The K100D is the latest in a very long line of 6-megapixel Pentax DSLRs, which doesn't seem physically that different from the *ist D. The surprisingly compact body is built around a metal chassis and finished off with tough, matt-black plastics.

    It's hard not to like the EOS 400D. Yes, it does feel small in your hands when you pick it up, but the finish, weight and the precision ofthe controls win you over. It's ready for action in an instant.

    So, what would the perfect digital SLR give us? How about a substantial jump from the 6-megapixel resolution standard for low-cost SLRs, right up to 10 million pixels? Now, what about an anti-shake system built into the camera body?

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 review

    10  

    The innards and guts of the Lumix DMC-L1 may have been transplanted directly from an Olympus E-330, but the heart and soul of this brand-new, 4/3 digital SLR is definitely pure Panasonic

    When Canon introduced the 12.8-megapixel full-frame EOS 5D with its new print-ready Picture Styles options, we knew the follow-up to the hugely successful 8.2MP EOS 20D was on its way

    Koreans can buy Renault-Samsung cars, cover them with Samsung insurance, fill them with Samsung-refined petrol and take a trip to the Samsung Everland amusement park. But up until now, you couldn't buy a Samsung digital SLR.
