    First Look: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 review

    By 5 April 2012

    The Lumix GF5, or Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 to use its formal title, is the latest G Series compact system camera from Panasonic. It replaces the Lumix GF3 and the similarity is instantly recognisable from the distinctive design. Pocket-lint had the chance...

    Fujifilm X-S1 review

    By 14 February 2012

    The Fujifilm X-S1 is no ordinary superzoom. It has a 12-megapixel, 2/3in sensor that’s far larger than what you’d normally find in a compact camera for starters. As much as the X-S1 is considered a "compact" – often described as a "bridge" or "superzoom"...

    Fujifilm X-S1 pictures and hands-on

    By 17 January 2012

    Compacts with huge zoom ranges have been entering the market left right and centre in recent years due to higher demand. The Fujifilm X-S1 may appear to be much the same as its competitors, but it’s got some high-end features that put other superzooms...

    Pentax Q review

    By 4 October 2011

    Pentax’s Q certainly puts the "compact" into Compact System Camera. But it this mini interchangeable lens system a worthy purchase? The Pentax Q enters the photographic market at a time of change. Most manufacturers now have a mirrorless interchangeable...

    Olympus E-PL3 review

    By 29 August 2011

    Priced just a pound dearer than Panasonic’s rival Micro Four Thirds compact system camera, the Lumix DMC-GF3, and bundled with M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm F/3.5-5.6 II T lens kit zoom, the Olympus E-PL3 is also being touted as the "Pen Lite". It sits between...

    Nikon Coolpix P300 review

    By 10 May 2011

    The Nikon Coolpix P300 looks to fill a gap towards the top end of the compact camera market that hasn’t been occupied with a worthy Coolpix model to date. Enter the Nikon Coolpix P300: a small, 12.2-megapixel compact with a 24-100mm F/1.8-4.9 image...

    Canon PowerShot SX220 HS review

    By 20 April 2011

    The Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a 14x zoom camera, the follow on from the neat PowerShot SX210 IS of last year. The travel zoom category is more competitive than ever, with all the major manufacturers having their take with some great models to choose...

    Nikon Coolpix S9100 review

    By 17 April 2011

    As the variety and quantity of “travel zoom” compacts grows, kicked off in earnest by Panasonic’s TZ series a couple of years back and now sporting everything from Full HD video and GPS to 3D shooting, it was about time Nikon pimped its Coolpix...

    Canon IXUS 115 HS review

    By 8 April 2011

    Looking for an uncomplicated snapshot camera that will slide easily into a top pocket to be carried around at all times and whipped out when that random photo opportunity presents itself? Baby brother to the newest (and pricier) IXUS pairing of the 220...

    Canon IXUS 310 HS review

    By 30 March 2011

    Going for a decade now, the Canon IXUS family of credit card sized digital compacts has become synonymous with blending substance with a heavy dose of style. They don’t quite offer the same extent of manual control as the compacts towards the top end...

    Fujifilm FinePix X100 review

    By 28 March 2011

    The Fujifilm FinePix X100 is no ordinary compact. Made for the high-end market, this retro-looking, magnesium alloy beast is built around a large 12.3-megapixel APS-C sized sensor and fixed 23mm F/2.0 lens (that’s 35mm in equivalent terms). There’s...

    Canon EOS 1100D review

    By 16 March 2011

    The Canon EOS 1100D follows on from the previous 1000D model. It’s been quite a few years in the making, so has Canon truly delivered with this latest model and does the budget DSLR market have a new king? The Canon EOS 1100D, or Rebel T3 as our neighbours...

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT3 review

    By 15 March 2011

    How many of us who take photographs on a regular basis can deny that, at one point or another, our camera hasn’t inadvertently taken a tumble from our grasp or camera bag? To avoid that heart-in-mouth moment, and for added peace of mind, there’s the...
