Benq DC E820 Digital Camera Review

The sleek E820, successor to the BenQ E720, arrives with a 8.0 megapixel CCD image sensor, 3x optical zoom, Pentax lens and a bright 2.5-inch LTPS display. Furthermore, the camera is equipped with direct printing mode, continuous movie recording with optical zoom, 13 scene modes and 3:2 and 16:9 special output sizes; 3:2 resolution mode for easy printing without trimming edges; 16:9 resolution mode for direct display on a 16:9 TV making the E820 an all-round, highly versatile high-performance camera. The E820 also features a face-tracking function and comes embedded with creative photo frames for photo decoration.¬†Compared to E720, it has a new movie size: 720 x 400 (16:9) at 30 fps, higher ISO settings: 800 and 1000, the rest of the settings remaining the same for the new 8MP camera. What I like most about both of them is the manual shooting mode. It’s hard to find such a … Read more

Sony Cybershot DSC-S700 Digital Camera Review

The S series from Sony is offering compact affordable cameras different from the ultra-compact stylish ones not just because of the design but also because these have less shooting options. The S700 in particular is a 7.2 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom and a 2.4 inch LCD. In program auto, you can change color settings, metering modes, white balance, ISO, JPEG compression level, flash level, and sharpness. The mode dial and shutter release on the top are easy to operate and the zoom button is a bit tiny. Shutter lag, when you’ve already achieved a focus and exposure lock, is around 0.2-0.3 seconds and, in well-lit conditions, focus is achieved in under 0.5 seconds (low light condition under 1 sec.). LCD is fairly visible in bright sun; if you purchase high power AA rechargeable batteries, you’ll be able to take allot of pictures (over 400) due to the camera’s … Read more

Sony Cybershot DSC-W55 Digital Camera Review

The W55 is an ultra-compact, point-and-shoot camera with a 3X zoom lens, 2.5″ LCD display and the usual 3x optical zoom. Compared to the previous DSC-W50, it boots 1MB up, has nearly twice as much built-in memory and a little more battery power. Compared to DSC-W35 it has the same lens, same megapixels but a larger LCD. The look and feel of this camera is pleasant: a metal design (except the plastic door for memory card and battery), available in silver, black, light blue, and pink. It’s easy to hold and operate, a bit lighter than the above mentioned cameras, and fits in pockets. It’s a funny thing that this camera does have an optical viewfinder and a ton of accessories considering its compact size, but doesn’t have Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority (100% point-and-shoot camera, with no manual controls) so I really don’t understand who’s the target here.
