Canon Powershot A700 and A710 Digital Camera Review

The next step in Canon Powershot development after the 500 and 600 series, is the A700 series. The A700 model incorporates 22 shooting modes from fully automatic to fully manual to achieve optimum results for any photographic application. The new camera Canon Powershot A700 is also compatible with optional wide angle and telephoto lens converters, as well as a close-up lens and a wireless flash unit like its predecessors.

Canon Powershot A520 and A620 Digital Camera Review

First of all I confess that for me, Canon has the best image quality Ive experienced. A520 and A620 make no exception at all. The Canon A520 is just slightly smaller and definitely lighter than the A85 it replaces (A520 only uses 2 AA accumulators, however, A620 comes back to 4 AA which last longer), but still hardly fits in your bag (sort of robust compact design). They can be used as a point-and-shoot camera in Auto or Program mode, but it’s special ability lies in the flexible exposure control it allows: Shutter-Priority, Aperture-Priority, full Manual, and easy to use scene (Kids&Pets, Fireworks, Beach, Foliage, Snow, Underwater, Indoor, Night Snapshot) and modes (fast movement, slow movement, portrait, night, landscape and, particularly for canon, panoramic mode). Also, you can choose evaluative, center-weighted, or spot metering, vivid colour, black&white or sepia. Kind of slow cameras when flash is used. MMC (Multimedia Memory … Read more

FujiFilm Finepix E900 Digital Camera Review

This compact model – the FujiFilm Finepix E900 – has a 5.08 cm display (2 inch) of 115.000 pixels (quite small…). The biggest issue with this camera is that it appears to have problems while focusing in dark light and in tele mode. But the good thing about it is the multitude of functions and semiautomatic programs, even a manual exposure mode. Thru rapid access, in automatic mode you can change the diaphragm parameters. This camera not only uses the JPEG format, but also RAW (by the way, it used an XD card). Maximum ISO is 800. At ISO400 the image quality is week. This 9 Mp camera, with 4x optical zoom, has a high resolution, but fluctuant as the focal distance changes. Also, it creates dark corners on photos. Start-up takes 0.71 seconds, so its a quite fast camera, recommended for instant pictures. FujiFilm Finepix E900 makes use of AA … Read more
