Hands-on: Panasonic Lumix TZ60 review

When it comes to top-tier all-in-one compact cameras, the Panasonic Lumix TZ-series is the first name to pop into our heads. The existing TZ40 was an all-round success. But with the announcement of the Lumix TZ60, however, Panasonic has pushed the compact... >>

Fujifilm FinePix XP70: Splish splash with waterproof Wi-Fi compact camera

By 6 January 2014

Fujifilm has got the waterproof compact camera market fairly sewn up because of its affordable price point. Year after year it releases an additional model in the XP-series, and in 2014 that brings us to the FinePix XP70. It's waterproof, it's got Wi-Fi... >>

Fujifilm has refreshed much of its camera range at this year's Consumer Electronics Show by unveiling the FinePix S9400W, FinePix S9200 and FinePix S8600 models. The theme is clear: it's all about the zoom. That comes as no surprise, as the bottom end... >>

Fujifilm X100S Black: Alternative to classic silver finish available this month

By 6 January 2014

Hard though it was to avoid a title making a play on AC/DC's Back In Black album title, we put our sensible hats on. Because that's what the Fujifilm X100S Black deserves. This top-end, fixed lens compact camera is just about as good as they come. But... >>

Fujifilm XQ1 review

By 19 December 2013

When we first saw the Fujifilm XQ1 we were rather excited. This dinky, pocketable compact promised a good slice of the greatness that its big brother X20 model offers, albeit in a smaller package that ought to bring a yet wider appeal. One look at the... >>

Panasonic Lumix FZ72 review

By 16 December 2013

The Lumix FZ72 - or the FZ70 as it’s known outside of Europe - is Panasonic’s answer to the superzoom that truly earns its super dues. With a top-end zoom of 1200mm equivalent it's the embodiment of a "do it all" zoom lens that can also cater for... >>
