Nikon D40x SLR Digital Camera Review

There are about 2 weeks now since I have the Nikon D40x and I am extremely pleased with it. The main reasons are: fast shooting and crystal clear images with natural colors, very low noise and plenty of sharpness. There are 2 more things I like about it: the fact that I can immediately delete a picture if I want without entering the playback mode (The length of time the image remains on the monitor is determined by option.) and the outstanding battery life (I believe I reached around 600 shots before recharging – and recharging time is a little bit less than 2 hours). It’s not heavy (this is important for me) and maintains the design of the previous 6MP Nikon D40, having a good grip and well placed buttons. Becoming familiar with the operation of the D40x will take little time even if the controls are well placed … Read more…

Sony Cybershot DSC-H3 Digital Camera Review

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 has pretty much everything that a high zoom SLR-like camera (it’s still not a SLR, it comes with an integrated lens) should have: full manual controls, RAW mode, pop-up flash, histogram display, features like face detection and image stabilization, but, it lacks a viewfinder (nor electronic or optical). 10x optical zoom and 8 megapixels are satisfying for anyone who goes deeply into photography when combined with the manual functions, but, the image quality is not as good as the one provided by similar cameras: noisy shots starting from ISO 400. The camera took 1.8 seconds to start up and capture its first JPEG, 1.3 seconds between JPEGs with the flash disabled and 2.6 seconds between shots with the flash turned on. Shutter lag is between 0.4 second and 1 second while continuous shooting mode speed is 2fps regardless of the image size. An advantage of this camera … Read more…

Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 Digital Camera Review

Using this camera is similar to using a film camera: the zoom and aperture rings on the available Leica lenses plus the mode dial and manual focus. Also, since there are no scene modes, i highly recommend that you only buy this camera if you are more than a hobbyist (advanced amateur to professional photographer). An interesting fact is that Panasonic L1 a similar design to Olympus EVOLT E-330 but will offer MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) in addition to Olympus’ dust reduction feature. This results in a compatibility with the extensive line of Olympus’ quality Zuiko Digital Specific Lenses. Other features include Dust Reduction System, fast response time (under 1 sec. shutter lag when using viewfinder), the ability to save images in RAW format. There is a special option (on/off): if the AF does not lock, when you press the shutter button, the camera will not take the picture. … Read more…
