Casio has just announced a bunch of interesting compact cameras for Photokina 2010. The Exilim H20G is a compact super-zoom camera that has an ultra-wide angle 10X zoom lens and built-in GPS with fancy internal location sensors; while the Exilim ZR10 is a compact camera with the latest 12 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, which naturally allows the camera to do various tricks such as high speed continuous shooting and movies with super high frame rates. The other two Exilim cameras […]
Fujifilm has come up with a brand new rangefinder-style digital camera that they’ve just announced at Photokina 2010. The camera, though it appears like ‘yet another interchangeable lens camera’, is in fact a niche product with a fixed 23 mm lens and large image sensor behind it. There aren’t many details about the camera so far, but here’s what Fujifilm has revealed about the FinePix X100 so far:
Fujifilm FinePix X100
12.3 effective megapixels (APS-C CMOS sensor, 1.5X crop)

Looks like things are gonna get pretty interesting this holiday 2010. Why? Cause Nikon’s just come up with their answer to the recently introduced Canon EOS 60D and Olympus E-5 digital SLR cameras (and also the much-awaited successor to their own D90) – meet the new Nikon D7000.
The Nikon D7000 is a fairly sizeable upgrade compared to the old D90, featuring better build quality, a higher resolution display, improved viewfinder, metering and autofocus system, faster burst speed, improved movie mode […]
What a busy month September has turned out to be. Today Canon introduced the much awaited successors to their prosumer G-series and ultra-zoom SX-series camera lines. The new PowerShot G12 is an incremental upgrade to last year’s G11, keeping the same design and most of the latter’s feature set, but now incorporating improved image stabilization, a few control tweaks to make things more ergonomic and (finally) introduces 720p HD movie recording and auto HDR capabilities.
On the other hand, we have […]
People looking for more options in ‘big sensor, small camera’ market – rejoice! Samsung has entered the fray of ‘compact’ form factor interchangeable lens cameras with their new NX100. The Samsung NX100 takes the stuff that made the NX10 (from earlier this year) great, and fits everything into a smaller, less SLR-esque package that may seem familiar if you’ve seen the Olympus PEN series, Panasonic GF1 or Sony NEX cameras.

Olympus has just announced their new flagship digital SLR today, the Olympus E-5.

Pentax announced a brand new digital SLR, a new SLR lens and two new Optio compact cameras today. They’re all pretty interesting if you asked me – the Pentax K-r digital SLR has a feature set similar to mid-range class SLRs while sporting a more affordable ‘entry-level’ price. The Optio RZ10 is Pentax’s first attempt at the compact super-zoom camera market (As far as my memory can recall) while the entry-level Optio RS1000 introduces interchangeable faceplates (just like what you […]
Today’s an interesting day for Nikon fans and prosumer camera shoppers – Nikon has just announced their latest prosumer compact camera (hence reviving the Coolpix P-series prosumer line yet again after 2 years). This time, they’re determined to prove themselves as a serious competitor against Canon’s G-series. They’ve also updated the Coolpix S8000 from earlier this year with a cool 12 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor (we’ve been seeing mostly 10 MP ones so far), improved movie mode and a few […]

They’ve also announced two new lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system (PEN and Panasonic users rejoice) which cover the telephoto end of the focal range. The 40-150 mm f4.0-5.6 lens will go for $300 […]
