' Panasonic has done a good job of mixing intermediate photography features with easy-to-use features in the Lumix G2, making it an ideal entry-level DSLR camera.
'We found that the Panasonic G2 is suitable exactly for whom it's designed for: a camera for the compact camera upgrader, who will find welcome in its user-friendly features, rather than the DSLR downgrader who might find the ISO performance a little lacking.'
'Overall, the Panasonic G2 is a big improvement on the G1, offering a refreshing new way to interact with the camera.'
'More unusually still at this level, the K-x’s light sensitivity settings can be boosted to a semi-pro equivalent ISO 12,800 for flash free photography in the near dark and 16:9 widescreen format HD video recording – at 1280 x 720 pixels, 24fps, rather than Full HD 1920 x 1080 – marking this out as an affordable all-in-one device. '
'Small and light, the Pentax K-x seems like a well-built, no-nonsense digital SLR'
'The new K-x felt sturdy.'
'The camera also features a new 'cross-processing' mode on top of an already impressive range of filters and processing options. '
