    Fuji FinePix F11 digital camera review

    By 24 January 2006

    Fuji's F11 steps into the company's line-up alongside the F10, its predecessor. The F11 addresses a few elements of the F10 that were not exactly problems, more just missing, such as manual shooting control for example. So, the camera boasts more or less...

    Nikon Coolpix 7600 review

    By 28 December 2005

    With no less that 17, the Nikon 7600 has plenty of scope for most shooting situations, from indoor or party shots, firework displays or portraits and landscapes, but is it any good? The small-bodied camera weighs in at only 145g without its pair of rechargeable...

    Fuji FinePix S5600 digital camera review

    By 15 December 2005

    Like its predecessors, the 5600 is surprisingly compact with handling and simple use at its core, but is it any good? Neat, slip-proof surfaces provide confident grippiness while all the main controls are on dials around the body, so you don’t have...

    Nikon Coolpix P2 digital camera review

    By 14 November 2005

    As digital compacts go, the P2 (and its 8-megapixel brother, the otherwise identical P1) is a tad underwhelming to look at, with ‘traditional' styling lines making it look a plain Jane when compared to many of the style driven ultra compact models on...

    Konica Minolta Dynax 5D review

    By 10 October 2005

    For those trading up from a high-end digital compact or moving across from film SLR photogrpahy, the range of D-SLRs on the market has grown amazingly quickly, almost as fast as their prices have dropped. Enter the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D, technically...

    Kodak EasyShare C360 review

    By 27 September 2005

    Kodak EasyShare Picture Viewer review

    By 19 September 2005

    Kodak is certainly tenacious in providing ways for us to share our images and the cute little EasyShare Picture Viewer provides us all with a way to carry a modest number of images around in its internal 32MB memory or practically limitless number via...

    Anyone considering getting into digital SLR photography today, but lacks the budget of a top professional, now has more options than ever to choose between. Canon's EOS 350D, Konica Minolta's 5D entry and Pentax's *ist DS are all ‘budget' D-SLRs offering...

    Canon Powershot S2 IS digital camera review

    By 29 August 2005

    In the super- or ultra-zoom marketplace, things have changed dramatically since the S2's predecessor, the S1, was launched around 18-months ago. Competition from Olympus, Sony, Konica Minolta and Panasonic means the S2 has its work cut out. Happily, Canon...

    Nikon Coolpix S2 digital camera review

    By 22 August 2005

    Svelte, stylishly cool digicams are all the rage at the moment with Sony and now Nikon following the trend-setting Konica Minolta X-series models with a slim, upright style camera featuring periscope-like, folded optic lens technology. But the S2 adds...

    Fuji FinePix Z1 Digital Camera review

    By 1 August 2005

    The Z1 features the same CCD technology as that found in the FinePix F10, its SuperCCD HR technology providing 5.1-million pixel resolution in an extremely svelte package. The camera is so thin because it incorporates a lens with folded optics that enable...

    Olympus Camedia C-180 Digital Camera review

    By 18 July 2005

    It's not every day you can buy a five megapixel digital camera for around £110 but with the C-180, you can. It has a very simple-to-use ethos thanks to a set of clearly marked ‘one button, one function' controls. There's a slide away on/off switch...

    Fuji FinePix F10 Digital Camera review

    By 11 July 2005

    The F10 boasts the companies new, 1/1.7-inch Super CCD HR sensor that uses a full 6.3-million gross pixels rather than the interpolated, dual pixel elements of yore. Fujifilm's Super CCD technology has been with us for some time now and it just keeps...

    Epson R-D1 Digital Rangefinder review

    By 20 June 2005

    Nothing can quite prepare you for the experience of using the R-D1, a digital camera with a distinctly ‘film’ feel. The R-D1 uses a combination of full manual controls gleaned from the camera’s adapted and jointly-developed-with-Epson Cosina/Voigtlander...

    Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera and EasyShare Printer Dock 3 review

    By 13 June 2005

    Kodak may not be the first company to pair a digital camera with a printer, but it certainly is trying to push home the idea that we should print out our photos, put them in a box and keep them in the loft for a rainy day rather than trust non-paper formats...

    Epson Stylus Photo RX620 review

    By 6 June 2005

    For the small office user where space is always an important factor, having an all-in-one printer, copier and scanner can certainly be appealing, but are you restricting yourself by having an all in one solution, and more importantly is the sum of all...

    Nikon Coolpix 5600 review

    By 30 May 2005

    The Nikon Coolpix 5600 is a true point and shoot model with very few manual control to clutter the small, 85x60x35mm, 130g (without its two AA batteries) camera. It’s very easy to use as a result with the on/off and shutter buttons gracing the tiny...

    Nikon Coolpix 7900 review

    By 16 May 2005

    The new Nikon Coolpix 7900 offers a surprisingly sprightly package that is both very pocketable but very usable despite the small size. A large 2-inch colour screen means the majority of the back plate controls are shoved over to the right side of the...

    Epson P-2000 Multimedia Storage Viewer review

    By 9 May 2005

    The P-2000 looks like a pure indulgence when you take it from the box and turn it on for the first time. The 3.8in PhotoFine display is simply sublime. Looking a bit like a bloated XDA, the P-2000 holds a 40GB disk within its finely built form. A range...

    Olympus E-300 review

    By 2 May 2005

    The E-300 is the second, Four Thirds DSLR from Olympus and provides a value for money entry point into the world of the DSLR, competing well on price in the now very competitive DSLR market. It’s somewhat chunky design will look odd to SLR novices (its...
