  1. Panasonic Lumix TZ-4 review

    Panasonic Lumix TZ-4 review

    9  

    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.

    Olympus E-420 review

    9  

    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

    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

    8  

    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.

    Few cameras are announced a full two years before they hit the shelves in your local camera shop. But the Sigma DP1 was destined for a long and difficult birth.

    Sony A350 review

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

    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.

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

    Uniloc System 1700 with 30 ball head review

    8  

    Uniloc tripods use a curved centre bolt to link both their legs and their centre column. The legs and the column can move independently, and much more rapidly than conventional tripods.

    National Geographic Expedition NGET1 with NGEH1 head review

    National Geographic Expedition NGET1 with NGEH1 head review

    8  

    The NGET1 is actually ‘engineered’ by Manfrotto for National Geographic. It doesn’t take too much detective work to spot the similiarities between this tripod and Manfrotto’s 458B tripod and 468MG hydrostatic ball head.

    The 055XB doesn’t have the rotating column described in the 190XPROB review. If you want this, you’ll have to pay £15 more for the 055XPROB.

    Gitzo GT2330/G2272M 3-way head review

    Gitzos are the Rolls-Royce of tripods, and the GT2330 is expensive for an aluminium one, but surprisingly light.

    Pentax K20D review

    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 IXUS 90 IS review

    7  

    The Ixus 90 IS takes up its positions in the middle of Canon's Ixus range. It lacks the wide angle and longer zoom of its superiors, yet offers this year's must-haves; image stabilisation, a high pixel count sensor, face recognition, and a reasonable price.

    Ricoh R8 review

    Ricoh R8 review

    9  

    Ricoh is marketing the compact camera as a lighter, more discreet alternative to the DSLR without limiting the user. Ricoh’s attempted to create this type of camera through its flagship Caplio series, but this time has done away with the Caplio moniker, simply calling it the R8.

    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

    Olympus mju 850 SW review

    6  

    An errant splash can spell instant death for most digital cameras, water and electronics being a combination that's even less compatible than chalk and cheese. The Olympus mju 850 SW sets out to change all that. Not only is it ruggedised to offer a degree of shock resistance such that you can drop it from a height of 1.5 metres, but it's also fully waterproof.

    Olympus ED 50mm f/2.0 Macro review

    4  

    This Four Thirds lens has 'macro' on the side but only a 1:2 magnification ratio. It relies on the 2x crop factor to bring objects up to size. Despite this, the 50mm lens feels more like a 100mm on Olympus bodies

    Sony 100mm f/2.8 Macro review

    There's a lot of 'retro' about this Sony lens, from its appearance and finely ridged focus ring to the grumbling autofocus motor. The autofocus also seems as slow and imprecise as anything from 25 years ago

    Pentax smc-DA 12-24mm f/4 ED AL (IF) review

     

    The Pentax 12-24mm has a big price tag but is compact and lightweight. The big zoom ring facilitates smooth zooming with an even progression from start to finish. The focus ring is equally smooth but has a longer travel than most ultra-wide competitors

    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.

    Showing off digital photos isn't as easy as pulling out a paper-based photo album. To solve this little problem Epson has come up with the P-4000. It's like a digital photo album, complete with an impressively bright and high-resolution...

    Casio Exilim Card EX-S10 review

    8  

    Casio's original design brief for its Exilim 'card' range was that they should be pretty much the same height and width as a credit card. The new EX-S10 follows these principles while, more remarkably, slimming down the overall package to just 15mm in depth, making it the world's smallest 10MP digital camera.
