'The Olympus SP-590UZ's noise levels were average for the megazoom models we tested.'
'flimsy lens cap'
'While its continuous shooting rate of 1.2 frames per second sits close to the bottom of its class, frame rate is almost immaterial with an EVF camera since your real constraint for burst usability is the blackout interval of the viewfinder, which is almost universally bad.'
'Looking at the sharpness of the shots the Finepix S1800 does well for a camera with a wide angle lens, especially when the lens is zoomed out. '
'Shutter-lag is a bit disappointing at about 0.1 second when pre-focused and 0.5 seconds including focusing time.'
'Image quality not up to par with competition; Weak flash; Poor HD video results; Excessive noise above ISO 400 makes the higher options almost useless; Tiny EVF eye piece; LCD is reflective; Sporadic white balance results when using Auto setting; Lack of Aperture value control in the specified A position on the mode dial makes it difficult to control DOF (either wide open or closed down, nothing in between). '
'The Fuji S1800 will be available in February 2010 at a retail price of $229.95.'
