Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Digital Camera Review

This camera first impressed me with the Extra Optical Zoom function that provides additional magnification up to 18x when taking photos with 3-megapixel resolution. Second thing to make you choose this camera is the and Intelligent Image Stabilization. Sensitivity setting as high as ISO 1250 is quite impressive for the noise reduction and the shutter release time lag as short as 0.005 seconds, shutter interval 0.6 second are brilliant. Lets see some interesting features: Date Stamp, a total of 18 scene modes, including the new Pet and Sunset modes. About the menu: youre playing a joystick. Its not exactly a pocket camera since its kind of robust. New on the market, it accepts SDHC memory cards (the new SD memory cards with capacity over 2GB). As for movies, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 records full-size movies in wide-aspect VGA (848×480) at 30fps, allowing you to view your recordings on a wide screen … Read more

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
