'But, aside from a few other minor criticisms, the S90 is a first-rate compact camera for advanced amateurs.
'Click ring around lens provides excellent control. '
'Having lived with the S90 for a couple of weeks, that special impression is still with us - it's a magnificent compact camera. '
'More importantly, the S90 offers users a good variety of controls ranging from manual to full automatic exposure shooting modes. '
',the overall output in most cases is almost amazing for a camera in this class.'
'The speed of this lens is simply a marvel to behold, and a joy to employ.'
'the lense in the XZ-1 is spectacular.'
'Photos have nice color and most camera controls are very intuitive.'
'bright and clear to use, but with 115k pixels looks much coarser than the S5 IS's screen.'
'I was able to take 16 shots before the card was full.'
'ISO 1,600 images are rough at 5x7, with very grainy shadows, and a more pointillist painting feel throughout, which doesn't get much better at 4x6.'
'The right side looks abnormally large and flat.'
'I suspect the disappointing performance remains unchanged as well.'
'The camera is fairly light for its size.'
'extremely high contrast images'
'Compared to other enthusiast's digital cameras on the market, it is relatively inexpensive at around $250..'
'best still images possible'
'extraordinary creative performance'
'you impressive zooming capabilities'
'The new video resolution is listed in the specs as 1024 x 720 pixels, and at 30fps this is an impressively high resolution for a still camera'
'the EasyShare compacts, however.'
'Prosumer digital cameras are designed to appeal to photography enthusiasts and the Z812 IS lacks a custom/manual white balance mode – a feature lots of photography enthusiasts regard as essential.'
'Unfortunately, if you want to adjust those exposure settings, you're forced to adjust them all individually; the camera lacks shutter- and aperture-priority modes.'
'Digital IS (anti-blur scene mode) will automatically select a high ISO to help eliminate or reduce blur due to camera shake and/or subject movement.'
'By ISO 800, noise increased to the Unacceptable level'
'The only drawback is that fitting so many controls into the relatively small space available on the right-hand side of the camera has relegated the zoom toggle to a less-than-ideal location.'
'competitive with some of the higher-end compact cameras.'
'All-in-all the EasyShare package is pretty darn good for bundled software, especially if you've seen the stuff that some other companies give you.'
'As with most compact digital cameras, higher ISOs tend to suffer from noise and image detail loss.'
'This is a very nice camera for the beginner ready to jump up'
'The 18x super telephoto zoom gets you closer to the action than any compact digital camera on the market.'
'When powered down, the Olympus SP-550UZ is a squat, bulky looking camera, with an appearance very similar to competing Canon and Sony models.'
'image stabilization, a decent movie mode, long battery'
'digital image stabilization and an amazing sensitivity range of 50 to 4000 ISO'
'lack of sharp focus.'
'manually enabled popup flash is fairly weak - maximum flash range (in auto ISO mode) is just short of 15 feet; not very impressive for a camera with a 10X zoom.'
