Extremely small camera, Metal body, Plenty of built-in memory
The Nikon Coolpix S02 is designed to be used when out with friends etc. It's small enough to carry around in your pocket or bag and you'd barely even know it was there. Smart phone users aren't likely to see much of an appeal though as you can't upload to the web straight away - if there was built-in Wi-Fi then it would be a fantastic camera for those who want to upload their pictures onto Facebook before they get home. The camera is made of metal, looks stylish and comes in a number of colours.
Fast focus and performance, Excellent viewfinder.
The full-frame Nikon D800 manages to deliver 36 megapixels of resolution, without sacrificing image quality at high ISOs. It only shoots 4 frames per second, but that should be sufficient for event photographers, landscape shooters, and well-heeled enthusiasts.
Solid handling and ergonomics while shooting
The Nikon D800 is a beast of a camera, an extraordinarily high-resolution anachronism dropped into a supposedly post-megapixel world. The 36.3-megapixel sensor of the D800 defines it; it is the camera's greatest asset, making it one of the most flexible, enjoyable cameras we've ever shot with.
In actual use, the Nikon D800 is a fantastic tool that seldom disappoints
The Nikon D700 has been a hot seller ever since it was introduced back in the summer of 2008. It had a great sensor, a robust but relatively lightweight body and a comprehensive feature set, and was sold at a price that many thought was reasonable for all the goodness it offered.
The D800 combines swift operation and well-designed controls with outstanding image quality
The D800 combines swift operation and well-designed controls with outstanding image quality that is particularly impressive at high ISO settings. Expanded video capabilities hold appeal those who need to produce both stills and video while on assignment. The camera's 36MP sensor allows for class-leading resolution in a 35mm format camera...if you're prepared to hold your technique and equipment to the highest standards.
Extensive dynamic range, Large images, Superb AF system
Many see the Canon EOS 5D Mark III as the D800's natural competitor. While the average serious enthusiast is likely to think long and hard about switching manufacturer, professional photographers are less loyal and will go with whichever option works best for them.
Best DSLR: top cameras by price and brand
The D800 will be very attractive to photographers who need a comparatively light camera that is capable of capturing a lot of detail and producing large prints.
Delivers phenomenal image quality at around half the price of Nikon's flagship D4 model
The Nikon D800 is a professional-grade 36.3MP DSLR that delivers phenomenal image quality at around half the price of Nikon's flagship D4 model. Overall, it's a fantastic addition to the Nikon range that easily justifies its £2,600 price tag. Build quality is superb, handling is excellent and despite the huge range of customisation on offer the D800 remains relatively intuitive and easy to use.
Excellent image quality, Extremely high resolution images
To me, this camera is essentially the one I'd been hoping Canon would release for over a year now! Good image size, decent ISO performance, nice video capabilities and at a very reasonable price for the specs, it just happens to be a different manufacturer. What's interesting is that now I own one, I've found that I'm not shooting with the Nikon all the time...
Camera layout is practical and simple to use
A week was all the time it took for us to fall in love with the D800. And we were starting to get butterflies when we first took it out of the box. This is the camera we'd get if money were no object. While the D4 has a lot to offer in terms of speed, the resolution of the D800 is its main selling point, and it really is a game-changer in our view.
Considerably higher resolution than peers
The Nikon D800 has impressive specifications but that is just the beginning. Its 36 MP sensor with ISO 50-25600 sensitivity is capable of shooting at 4 FPS and capturing full 1080p HD. It includes a 51-point autofocus system and all features expected from a professional DSLR, including a large 100% coverage viewfinder and sturdy weatherproof body with dual control-dials.
Delivers excellent photo quality
A lot of people think that Canon's missing out by lagging in its ILC development--and it is. The G1 X targets a growing part of the market, composed of people who don't really care about changing lenses and just want better photo quality. But, ironically, its disappointing lens makes a better case for getting an ILC in this price segment than for buying this fixed-lens option.
Gigantic 1.5-inch CMOS sensor
Rarely do we see such an expensive, specialized camera make its way to the fixed-lens market. At $800, the Canon PowerShot G1 X should appeal exclusively to intermediate and advanced photographers. Photographers who let's face it - probably own a DSLR already. So the question becomes, does the G1 X succeed as a companion camera, a backup model for situations when size and weight are important? The dense body is still quite a bit larger than most compact cameras, far too big for a pocket.
Excellent photo quality
If you've got $800 burning a hole in your pocket and want a semi-compact camera with D-SLR image quality, then look no further than the Canon PowerShot G1 X. It's not for action photography (due to its sluggish focusing and burst modes) nor is it great for close-ups, but for virtually every other situation, the G1 X delivers.
Excellent image quality
If you want an all-in-one fixed-lens camera that offers a tried and trusted user interface, excellent image quality, full HD video and a versatile screen, the Canon Powershot G1 X is easy to recommend. Whether it offers enough to justify its high price tag compared to cameras with bigger sensors or interchangeable lenses is entirely up to you.
Superb image quality. Essentially matches 18 Mpixel APS-C DSLRs
The Canon PowerShot G1 X is very much a camera of two personalities. On the happy side is superb image quality which matches - and in some cases slightly exceeds - what you can expect from Canon's 18 Megapixel EOS DSLRs, but in a much more portable body with an excellent articulated screen and flash hotshoe.
Good detail and resolution at low sensitivities
The G1 X is an excellent camera for some but not for everyone. If you are aware of its shortcomings, such as the sluggish AF, limited close-focusing capability or lack of manual control in video, and think you can live with them, the Canon gives you great image quality and a versatile zoom range in a small package and without the need to carry a stack of lenses.
I have had Samsung digital cameras in the past, and prefer them over most other brands for ease of use. I purchased this one when our older Samsung was passed on to our son.
the price on this is fantastic. Compared to other cameras, even other Samsungs, with the same specifications, this is a bargain.
Small and thin. If you want something 'meaty' that you can hold with both hands, this is not the camera for you.
Very impressive continuous shooting, Poor image quality
The best way to purchase the E1410SW is therefore with a discount. At $160 this camera is competitive in price, but not in performance. Should you stumble across a deal of some kind, something that involves buying the camera for, say, less than $100, that will be a good value. Otherwise there are just too many other options out there.
iAuto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations
The GE E1410SW is a very powerful ultra-compact digicam. Featuring a 10x optical zoom lens, 14-Megapixel CMOS imaging sensor, powerful burst modes and full 1080p video capture, you will not find another camera with these features in this price range.
The best pocket-sized Canon yet
With each generation, Canon makes the ELPH series easier to use and still get great results. Like it's predecessors, this one fits easily into your pocket (or the case I recommend toward the end of this review). That point alone may make this the best camera you own; having a $5k DSLR doesn't do you much good if you left it home because it wasn't worth the effort to lug it along.
However, unlike many other small cameras, this one does not sacrifice either features or quality.
Very Nice Camera
I do like this camera a lot. It takes great still images and has some cool features. BUT I REALLY REALLY like zooming in optically and having autofocus during video. So I think I may return it to the store and buy the other Elph 300 HS or some other camera. I don't know :(. If you don't mind not having autofocusing during video and have digital zoom during video then this camera is just for you.
Small Size, Low Noise But Soft Photos, No Digital Zoom in 3:2
I concluded that there is a price paid for the compactness and low-light capabilities of this camera. Other cameras that are a bit bigger may be better suited for those who are looking for a primary camera. For family and office events, I have my other Canons and my Nikon D90 SLR to use, so I do not have to rely only on the ELPH 100 HS. If a compact Canon ELPH is nevertheless desired, I would suggest that a 300 HS for about $50 more should be considered.
A breezy user experience
Point-and-shoots tend to concern themselves with extra features to stand out from the dozens of choices. Touchscreens, long zoom-ranges, share buttons, and special effects are all well and dandy, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS (MSRP $199) succeeds where it actually matters: excellent image quality, a breezy user experience, and a very reasonable price.
A simple to use point and shoot camera that takes better than expected pictures
There's not a great deal here that we haven't already witnessed on the Canon IXUS 220 HS, and apart from a bigger screen and a lower price tag for this IXUS 115 HS, the two cameras are pretty much two tempting peas in the same tight pod. So, if getting one of the best value 'bang for your buck' deals is heavy among your considerations then the 115 HS delivers on that impressively, and on each of our star ratings receives a score comparable with its IXUS 220 HS big brother.
Super-slim stylish compact design
For an entry level model, the ELPH 100 HS / IXUS 115 HS has a huge amount to offer. Not to be underestimated is that it's an ELPH / IXUS, so it's well built, looks stunning and is super-compact. Its 4x zoom range is nothing more than adequate, but if you don't go in for panoramic landscapes or wildlife photography, that will be no loss and 4x is good enough to help frame the vast majority of 'everyday' shots.
High quality images
The IXUS 115HS is a fine example of a why the IXUS line has proved to be such a smash all these years, and with the High Sensitivity sensor Canon seems determined to prove that the camera is as much about its images as it is its sleek design.
Its diminutive body and the high-sensitivity capabilities makes the IXUS a fine contender for a camera to take on a night out, but getting the balance right between style and operation is tricky, and the streamlined body is sadly only friendly for...
