Very good image quality, Very good Wi-Fi connectivity
The Samsung NX2000 sits very comfortably between the NX1100 and the NX300--offering users a high quality camera for a reasonable price. If fact, at the time of this review we were able to find the NX2000 for about $600 (making it the same price as the NX1100. That's a $150 savings over the NX300. But is the price difference worth it? Not in my book. I would spend the extra money to get a camera with a little more beef and a hybrid AF system.
I'm not saying the NX2000 is a bad camera.
Delivers excellent still image quality
Sharing the same core DNA as the other NX models, the new NX2000 offers a much more phone-like interface than either the NX300 or range-topping NX20, with built-in wi-fi and NFC connectivity too, so for some people it will actually offer a more familiar handling experience.
Very good value for money, Adobe Lightroom 4 included
The Samsung NX2000 is a fairly compact mirrorless camera with a high resolution 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and a large 3.7inch touch screen on the back. The camera delivers impressive image quality with excellent levels of detail and colour with good noise performance. The camera has a good level of control, with the large touch screen helping here, although visibility was not great when outdoors.
Outstanding image quality, Touchscreen LCD is large and sharp
The primary drawback to this camera is it has a slightly higher starting price than some other models in this segment of the market. Considering its feature list, though, the NX2000's price is fair and this camera is a good value. However, some intermediate-level photographers who are looking for an entry-level interchangeable lens cameras may not quite have the budget to afford this feature-rich Samsung offering.
Larger touchscreen, Sharp colourful images, Plenty of detail
The Samsung NX2000 offers the same 20.3-megapixel effective resolution from an APS-C sensor as last year's NX1000 - but that's good news.
We also get a larger touch screen LCD, NFC connectivity, expanded ISO range topping out at ISO25600 and other less important operational tweaks.
Image quality, Ergonomic design, Decent build
Interchangeable Lens Cameras have certainly come a long way from being a clunky piece of contraption to now a sleek and sometimes pocketable device. Sadly though, there are some crucial aspects of the camera that got lost in the transition, such as the case with the Samsung NX2000.
Maybe it's just a case of an old dog, new trick on my part, but I'm really disappointed with the scarcity of physical button on this camera to give way for the fairly large display.
Offers very good photo quality
The Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is a bit of a disappearing breed: a compact megazoom that uses AA-size batteries and has semimanual and manual shooting modes. It's fairly affordable, too, and does get you very good photo quality. Its shooting performance is miserable, though, so I'd only recommend it for patient photographers shooting landscapes and similarly stationary subjects.
Solid travel-zoom camera
The Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is very much a minor upgrade of last year's SX130 model, principally offering 2 additional megapixels, an improved image stabilisation system, a range of creative filters and a handy one-touch movie record button. Otherwise it's virtually identical to its capable predecessor, with an attractive price-tag but also a rather big and chunky design that's looking more and more out-dated as time goes on.
12x zoom with intelligent optical stabiliser
The Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is a hard camera not to like. You can talk about features and compare specifications but what those things rarely convey is a sense of personality, which the SX150 IS has in bundles. Compared with most modern compacts it's big and heavy, but it's a comfortable and enjoyable camera to use whether in point-and shoot auto modes or for fully manual operation.
User-friendly, easy to operate interface/design
Although not the most slender compact camera out there, the SX150 IS comfortable and easy to use, and its stabilized 12X optical zoom offers impressive versatility coupled with good (for this class) image quality at low ISO sensitivity settings. A well-rounded feature set meets the needs of snapshooters along with those who have (or want to have) more experience with manual controls.
Excellent zoom range
Although the new features the Canon PowerShot SX150 IS offers aren't substantial enough to tempt the majority of SX130 users to upgrade, those photographers looking for DSLR-like controls in a compact body that costs under Â£200 should seriously consider this PowerShot. Its size, versatile zoom and reliance on AA battery power makes the Canon PowerShot SX150 IS a serious contender as one of the best travel compact cameras available today.
Decent image quality
When picking up the SX150, the first thing that strikes you is how heavy and bulky it is for a compact camera. There are many cameras on the market that offer a similar amount of zoom in much smaller lighter bodies, but these cameras are likely to be more expensive or lack features such as manual controls. For a very reasonable price you get a good zoom range and decent image quality making it an ideal camera for travelling.
Performs very well indeed in good light
The Canon Powershot SX150 IS performs very well indeed in good light. Photos are crisp, colours vibrant and pictures are bright. In fact the camera outperforms a lot of similarly priced cameras in those conditions. Lowlight is a challenge and in some tests it was hard for the camera to achieve absolute focus. If you see yourself mainly taking pictures in good light then this camera offers a very enticing combination of features and price.
Longish zoom lens
Noise suppression dampens some of the potential we hoped for from 16 megapixels, but that's no longer news; ultimately the Sony HX7V does a very good job and has a longish zoom lens, making a good travel companion. Those wanting the latest and greatest as well as a longer zoom should look to the Sony HX9V, but for $50 less, the HX7V is still a Dave's Pick.
Excellent still images
The Sony CyberShot DSC-HX7V is a great alternative to the more expensive HX9V, our favourite travel-zoom, featuring a more modest 10x zoom, slightly slower autofocus, and "only" 1080i video, but otherwise offering all of the same cutting-edge features, great image quality and intuitive handling as the HX9V.
Good low light performance
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX7V is one of five 3D-compliant digital cameras released together in early 2011. Unlike the other models in the series, the DSC-HX7V features a lower-grade Sony G lens, though it still maintains the capacity to capture 3D still images up to 4608x3456 in JPEG, and 2D 1080/60i videos in AVCHD/MP4/MPEG-4.
Full range of exposure modes
There's no doubt the Lumix ZS10 represents several important technological advances over last year's ZS7. GPS hasn't changed, but the 14-Mp MOS sensor and Venus FHD image processor do bring new capabilities to the small travel camera, most notably Full HD video capability and high-speed continuous modes.
But my experience with the Lumix ZS10 wasn't a happy one. Most of my images were flat and fuzzy. And I quickly grew annoyed with it.
Doing its job quite well - I am Satisfied
it is doing its job quite well. I own it for one month now. First I'd like to share my experience on the photos' quality. The pictures DO LOOK GREAT on my 21'' LCD computer screen, on my 47'' LCD TV set and when I print them on 4''X6'' postcards. They look FUZZY and BLURRY WHEN I ZOOM to 100% and beyond. Bottom line: good pictures, however the huge MB size of the files does not pick up fine clear details.
I found it quite intuitive to learn how to use its basic functions.
A feature-packed camera in a beautiful package, easy to use
Overall we find this camera to be jam-packed with features and a good value for the money, even though there were plenty of competitors in its class that would have cost less. I would buy this one again if we had to do it over. We selected the red version and like the color and the styling as well as the functionality.
very good color accuracy
The Panasonic DMC-ZS10 (known as the TZ20 here in Japan's CP+ show) is a highly portable camera that manages to pack in a lot of zoom power, some decent specs, and enough features to make it at least slightly enticing. We liked the GPS functionality, which opens up some fun possibility for organizing photos at a later date. The 3D feature, however, left a lot be desired.
Very nice, slim and smooth design
The Sony Cyber-shot TX10 is a very nicely designed ultra compact, certainly, with the virtue of being impervious to water. It can handle being dropped and dust will not degrade it. On those tests, the TX10 scores high marks.
Exposure in the shade was uniformly insufficient, although sunlit scenes were nicely captured. Color did shift, particularly reds, but it wasn't unpleasant in sunlit shots.
Sony Cyber-shot TX10 User Review
Overall, I like this camera, it takes superb photos, not as good as a Nikon SRL but the color balance is pretty decent for the price but if you don't need a water "resistant" camera then get the recently released Sony HX7V, it takes better pictures and it is less expensive.
Mixed feelings on this Upgrade to the TX9
Overall, I like the camera, but I think that unless you will use the waterproof ability on a regular basis I think the TX9 is a better buy. They are very close in image quality with the TX10 slightly edging out the TX9 in video quality. The smaller form factor may be an issue for those with larger hands. My original intention was to keep this camera and sell the TX9 on ebay, but I actually think I'll return the TX10 and wait for the next generation.
High Expectations Not Met. Still a decent camera
So there you have it. I love (slash hate) the form factor, but for a rugged outdoor camera I would prefer a more solid build like the Panasonic TS3. Great form factor for everyday around the town use. The biggest concerns I have that will probably lead to me returning the camera are the touch screen and non-rugged build. If you want a waterproof camera to protect from a spill or just a fun day at the pool then this might be the one for you.
The TX10, a nifty little camera, but can do with some improvements.
I may add more cons later, and perhaps i'll even sell my TX10 in favor of a better model. But for now, this a cute and simple point and shoot that takes decent images. The touch screen sounds impressive at first, but i'd rather not fight with an unresponsive or erratatic screen.
I love this camera it takes wonderful pictures, is full of really cool features,and shoots amazing video in full high def. Also to add to it, it's very strong, and well built. And I have to say that before I bought it I read a review saying the sound quailty was bad and that it sounded muffeled, in my opinion the sound quailty is great. i haven't had a single problem with it. I highly recomend
Image quality is also solid
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-TX10 is an ultracompact with a secret. Underneath its bright, modern exterior is a rugged tough-cam, built to withstand punishment from both earth and sea. Waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, and coldproof; this slim point-and-shoot is practically immune to the elements. Image quality is also solid, thanks to a few hardware and software improvements over its predecessor, the TX5.
Good quality lens with optical image stabilization
Sony's Cyber-shot H70 is a pretty solid long-zoom compact. It has a modest feature set with only a handful of Scene modes, and a Manual Mode for some photographic experimentation, and a few "Intelligent" modes to do the thinking for you. The 10x, G-series wide-angle zoom performs well and gives the Sony H70 a nice optical punch.
A Great Portable Camera
Overall I am very happy with my purchase. If you want a point and shoot that is easy out of the box, there are better suited cameras out there. If you want a camera that's a few steps up from a basic point and shoot, this one is great if you are willing to take the time to learn how to use it. Once you do, changing the settings is fast and easy.
Sweep Panorama technology is easy to use and captures great images
Sony's Cyber-Shot DSC-H70 is a powerful, yet portable 16-megapixel camera. With impressive features, and ease of use, the H70 is sure to please. It did have some downfalls in the image quality department, so be sure to look at several models before making your final purchase.
Image quality is very good
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-H70 has some very strong features for a camera in its price range, and its image quality is very good. In fact, for a sub-$200 camera with a small built-in flash, the H70's image results in low light are surprisingly good, some of the best I've seen in a camera in this price range. The H70 has some issues with response times, as its autofocus can be a bit slow, in both low light and in outdoor lighting, which means you may miss a few spontaneous photos.
Outdoor wide angle shot
There is a lot to like about the Sony Cybershot DSC H70. It is a clear step up in many ways from a more basic digital camera. Picture quality impresses as does the build quality of the camera and range of features. If there is a problem it is the fact the Cybershot DSC H70 sits in a crowded part of the market where there is not a great deal of difference in quality between a lot of cameras.
