FujiFilm FinePix X100 review with examples

FujiFilm FinePix X100 has become my new camera of choice because of these two advantages combined: small build and EXTREMELY good image quality even in low light and even with low ISO. The only downside I can find for this camera is that it has no zoom feature, therefore I won’t be able to use it for certain wildlife photography. Still, remember that most photos can be done without zoom, and if you learn to do good photos without it, then you are one step forward of becoming a good artist. Here is what I mean with extremely (images were shot after sunset):   Even if this camera has no optical zoom, it is ideal for any kind of photography except wildlife. Why? – Because of the incredible f.2 aperture which will produce a nice depth of field for portraits and macro. I believe this is the perfect camera for … Read more

Nikon Coolpix S9300 digital camera review

Before setting up on the FujiFilm FinePix X100 as my camera of choice when it comes to wanting a small pocket camera, I purchased the Nikon Coolpix S9300. I was not satisfied.

Canon Powershot G9 Digital Camera Review

First of all, I would like you to observe that you are reading about Canon G9 because other high performance point an shoot cameras from Canon don’t offer RAW file format as a shooting option (Raw shooting is selected via the Recording Pixels sub-menu in the Function menu). Second, you might be intrerested in the flexibility of use that this camera offers: plenty of accessories (including external flash), full manual controls, a large range of settings (Face Detection AF and AE functions, optical stabilization, 6x optical zoom, Safety Zoom function and built-in ND filter) and in-camera adjustments. On the other side, Canon Powershot G9 is based on the previous G7 model: slightly higher resolution (12.1 megapixels vs 10 megapixels) and a larger, 3.0-inch LCD screen. Also, the G9’s viewfinder, although similar in appearance with the one of G7, is small and rather cramped. It has separate dial controls for shooting modes … Read more
