Camera Reviews

DPINTERFACE EXCLUSIVE: I’ve just posted my review of the Olympus E620 digital SLR, a 12 megapixel digital SLR with a 4 FPS burst mode, Art Filters and new TruePic III+ processor – it’s just like a ‘baby E30’ (which in turn is the ‘baby E3’). You can also check out photos taken straight out of the camera in the Olympus E620 photo gallery. Hit the link for the full review.

DPInterface is the first independent camera review website to publish a full, final review of the E620. This review was written based on a full production, retail unit of the Olympus E620.

Hey everyone, today is our anniversary! We may not have been around since the start of the digital camera era, but we started at the right time, when digital cameras started to evolve quite a bit from ‘just taking pictures’ (when things like digital SLR live view and manufacturers began making bridge cameras again). Four years and 130 camera reviews later, here we are now. DPInterface is still going strong and we’re constantly working on improving our site and reviews… A big thanks to all our readers and we hope you’ll stay for the many years to come!

P.S. Lots of interesting things happening next week – more reviews and a new camera announcement (in case you haven’t been keeping up with the rumors)!

Camera Reviews

Having published the reviews of all three “compact, super-high resolution” cameras, the Canon PowerShot SD990 IS Digital ELPH, Nikon Coolpix S710 and Panasonic Lumix FX37, it’s now time for a comparison summary between the three cameras and to find out the winner.

Similarities between three cameras:
14+ effective megapixels
Full manual exposure mode

Canon PowerShot SD990 IS Digital ELPH/Digital IXUS 980 IS

  • +Optical viewfinder
  • +Fast performance
  • +Most stylish/unique “bumpy” design
  • –Smallest LCD in its class
  • –No HD movie mode

Nikon Coolpix S710

  • +Largest LCD in its class
  • +Shutter and aperture priority modes
  • +Smallest and lightest in its class
  • –Movie issues and no HD movie mode
  • –Limited burst mode
  • –More noise than other 2 cameras

Panasonic Lumix FX150

  • +Full white balance control
  • +Fast performance
  • +RAW image mode
  • +High definition 720p movie mode
  • –No separate rear control dial
  • –Detail smudging above ISO 400

To conclude, I would say the Panasonic Lumix FX150 is the winner here (though the other two cameras are still choices to consider) – it’s an all-rounder in overall feature set and performance: good image quality, speedy to use, is the only one of the three to have a HD 720p movie mode and most importantly, has two huge features which put it on top of the competition: RAW mode and full white balance controls. Just watch out for detail smudging at ISO speeds above 400, or work around that by shooting in RAW.
