    First Look: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 review

    By 7 November 2011

    The new Panasonic Lumix GX1 bridges the gap between the compact Lumix GF3 and the mini DSLR-alike G3 and GH3 models. As such, it sits on the more compact side of the Lumix G series range, but still offers a whole host of controls and features to appease...

    Olympus SZ-30MR review

    By 11 July 2011

    In recent years we’ve seen the size of big zoom cameras dropping. What once sat in a body just smaller than a DSLR, now fills a space just larger than a typical compact. The Olympus SZ-30MR typifies this move, offering a staggering 24x zoom in a body...

    Updating last year’s WX5, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 is around £50 cheaper than its near numerical doppelganger in the current waterproofed DSC-TX10, though it’s unable to withstand the wet and the cold in the same way. Both cameras share a 16.2...
