  1. Nikon D5000 review

    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.

    It looks the part, but is the NV100 HD's beauty only skin deep?

    The Ixus 980 IS is so full of tricks, you have to wonder where they find space to jam in all those extra megapixels as well. Matthew Richards takes a closer look

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

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 review

    5  

    It's no secret that Panasonic and Leica have been sharing much of their compact camera designs for a few years now, and the FX150 shares an almost identical design and button placement to the Leica C-Lux 2.

    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.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 review

    9  

    Coming almost two years after the introduction of the LX2, the LX3 features a high-quality 10-million pixel sensor paired with a fast-aperture Leica-designed lens, in a metal body with plenty of manual control over exposure settings

    Stop, wait: don't look at the rating or the price. Look at the picture again. Isn't it pretty? Isn't it awesome? Doesn't it put a great big grin on your face?

    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.

    Olympus 1030 SW review

    If you were to drop a DSLR into a stream it would be toast. So if you're thinking of journeying into a steamy jungle or snorkelling in a tiger-infested mangrove swamp, you might want to use something a bit tougher and lighter.

    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 D700 review

    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.

    Nikon CoolPix P80 review

    Nikon CoolPix P80 review

    7  

    On paper, it looks as if the Nikon P80 can do anything you'd ever ask of a camera. The 18x zoom covers a range equivalent to 27mm to nearly 500mm, and in-built image stabilisation should help keep those long shots steady. Keen photographers like to fiddle with the shutter speed and aperture, and the P80's SLR-style Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual modes should make this straightforward.

    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.

    It's a dismal time to be a compact camera maker without a foothold in the lucrative SLR market; slumping sales, combined with competition from camera phones, are slashing formerly fat margins.

    The first 10x optical zooms shook the world of photography. Many traditional photographers would have doubted they were even possible, let alone any good. Yet here we are, just a few years on, and we take them for granted.

    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.

    Fujifilm FinePix S100FS review

    With digital SLRs coming down in price all the time, is there still a place for high-end 'bridge' cameras like the Fujifilm FinePix S100FS? Digital SLRs have larger sensors and produce better quality images, especially at high ISOs.

    Ricoh GR II review

    8  

    Over the past couple of decades, photography has changed almost beyond recognition. The switch from film to digital is only part of it. Photographers have also migrated en masse, away from fixed focal length 'prime' lenses to embrace the do-it-all convenience of zooms.
