What happens when you pair up the capable Panasonic Lumix GF1 with the Olympus Micro Zuiko 17 mm f2.8 Pancake lens? Well, quite obviously you get this 6 test chart photo gallery which shows you the Panasonic GF1’s image quality from ISO 100 to ISO 3200 and also the image quality characteristics of the Micro Zuiko 17 mm f2.8 pancake lens.
I recently had the opportunity to attend Panasonic’s launch event for their new 2010 video camcorders and digital still cameras.
Canon just announced a bunch of new digital cameras today: a new entry-level digital SLR and a couple of new compact cameras. The new Canon EOS Rebel T2i, also known as the EOS 550D, is the successor to last year’s popular Rebel T1i/500D model and features a new image sensor, more external controls and improved movie mode. Seems like Canon’s Rebel T-line is getting more and more sophisticated, which makes me wonder if they’ll introduce an even more basic model [...]

In terms of zoom, Olympus’ UZ series (Ultra-zoom) live right up to their name, one of which features a 15X optical zoom lens, while the other has a whopping 30X optical zoom in a single lens. Yes, you heard that right, THIRTY times optical zoom (I wonder how anyone can handhold that and take a [...]
