    Sony Alpha A380 review

    6  

    The Sony Alpha 380 is the most highly specified of three simultaneous new releases from Sony, alongside the A280 and A300, and is designed to appeal to both first-time DSLR buyers and enthusiasts.

    Nikon D5000 review

    8  

    The D5000 is intended to bridge the gap between the popular but feature-thin entry level D60 and (now discontinued) D40, and the mid-range D90. Like the latter, it offers a HD video recording mode, and in fact shares the same 12 million-pixel sensor, and AF, white balance and metering systems.

    The Olympus E-620 DSLR fits nugly between the E-30 and the recently announced E-450, in the middle of the Olympus 'E' range.

    Pentax is pitching its new SLR right at the bottom end of the market. Have corners have been cut?

    The replacement to Nikon's popular D80 has been a long coming. TechRadar was at the UK launch to bring you a hands-on preview of this much-anticipated model.

    Canon EOS 1000D review

    Without the lens, the weight of the body could be mistaken for a big-size compact camera, but it always feels safe in the hand, due mainly to the well-placed grip on the right side of the chassis.

    Samsung GX-20 review

    Pentax and Samsung enjoy a ‘technology partnership’ in the digital SLR market, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to discover that there are plenty of similarities between their cameras.

    Nikon has been making top flight SLR cameras since the 1950s, but its newest model – the D700 – promises to appeal to enthusiasts and advanced amateurs as well as professionals.

    Olympus E-520 review

    The past year has been quite a busy one for Olympus. First there was the launch of the cute E-410 and E-510, followed by the impressive professional E-3 DSLR, which saw one of the world's most innovative camera brands re-enter the serious DSLR market.

    Small is beautiful, or so it's said. Could this be true of a DSLR that's as small as a large compact? Well, if you give the E-420 a chance, not only will you find it astonishing value, but its dinky size means you'll end up taking it everywhere with you.

    Pentax K200D review

    9  

    At first sight the Pentax K200D does look very much like the K20D, and the model numbers are confusingly similar. There are significant differences, though. The K20D, reviewed in issue 72, has a 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and a Live View mode. The K200D reviewed here has a regular 10-megapixel CCD and no Live View. Despite that, the K200D is a very accomplished little camera, which shares many of the features of its bigger brother.

    On the face of it, this new DSLR from Sony is positively groaning with extra features and some very clever functions.

    Sony has updated its entry-level DSLR but the changes appear to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. So, how tempting is it?

    Pentax K20D review

    9  

    On the surface, the K20D is not unlike the K10D. Under the skin, though, it's very different. The biggest change is the swap to a 14.6-megapixel CMOS sensor. It's clear by now that you don't get a lot more definition with these higher pixel counts, but every little helps and it does mean that fine detail is resolved with a little more subtlety.

    Canon EOS 450D review

    In recent months, Canon has dominated the D-SLR market with the success of the 400D, its entry-level camera. Some time after launch, newcomers are still snapping that model up for its superb image quality, ease of use and bargain price. But now Canon has issued a bigger, better and updated model: the 450D

    Nikon D60 review

    8  

    The D60 is Nikon's new 10-megapixel entry-level digital SLR. It takes over from the D40x and, outwardly, it's very similar. Under the skin, though, there are some significant improvements. For a start, the D60 gets a new dust-removal system, in line with most other digital SLRs on the market.

    Canon EOS 1Ds Mk III review

    9  

    Like other professional DSLRs, notably previous EOS 1Ds models and Nikon's D2x/D3, the EOS 1Ds Mk III is much taller than the average digital SLR. A big, fat battery housing sits in the base of the body, and this also allows space for an additional, vertical shutter release.

    Nikon D300 review

    The Nikon D200 was a truly great camera that offered professional performance at an enthusiast's price. Even now, its 10-megapixel CCD sensor can easily hold its own compared with similarly-priced rivals, and the robust build quality was - and still is - out of this world.

    Four long years have passed since Olympus launched its first professional digital SLR. During that time there may have been moments when some Olympus fans doubted there would ever be a successor to the much-loved E-1. Now the wait is finally over with the launch of the E-3
