Kodak V705 test with panoramic photos

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Friday 13th, April 2007

Just before the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) started in 2006, Kodak introduced its first dual lens digital camera; de Kodak V570. Its successor, the Kodak EasyShare V705 was announced just over six months later and will be the subject of the following digital camera review. Although a dual lens camera, the Kodak V610, has appeared in the meantime, this turned out to be a camera with the emphasis on tele range (10x optical) instead of 5x optical as with the Kodak V570. The extra wide-angle range of 23mm in particular, a rare exception in a compact camera, makes the Kodak EasyShare V705 an interesting digital camera.

D40x test images taken in Amsterdam

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Monday 2nd, April 2007

We just received a sample of the Nikon D40x SLR camera in combination with the new AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED lens. The new Nikon D40x and the lens were introduced just a few days before the PMA 2007 in Las Vegas opened. The Nikon D40x is the big brother in terms of resolution, ISO setting, energy consumption and continuous shooting speed, and is designed as a twin brother of the D40 DSLR camera. The lens is a great combination with the Nikon D40x camera. It focuses quite fast and of course the Vibration Reduction feature helps the photographer to prevent blurring while tele-shooting. Additional the D40x offers high ISO up to 3200 resulting into high shutter speeds.

Fuji Finepix s6500fd review

Posted by: Mark Peters Monday 2nd, April 2007

One thing became very clear with Fujifilm, at the Photokina 2006 : face detection is going to be it! And the technique is ready to be built in cameras standard. With this, Fujifilm can fall back on their extensive knowledge of minilabs. There, the technique has been used for years, among other things, to be able to tune colours perfectly. One of the first models with face detection is the Fujifilm FinePix S6500fd. The indication fd stands for face detection. The sensor is building another very important part of the Real Photo Technology. Fujifilm has been using the Super CCD for a long time, and the Fujifilm S6500fd has been equipped with the 6th generation already, the Super CCD VI HR.

Canon PowerShot A570 sample photos

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Wednesday 7th, March 2007

Thanks to Canon Netherlands for placing a Canon PowerShot A570 IS camera sample at our disposal very fast, I was able to capture life in Las Vegas before and during PMA 2007. The new Canon A570 IS camera has been officially introduced some weeks ago during a worldwide introduction day, together with various other PowerShot and Digital IXUS compact cameras and the impressively fast professional Canon EOS 1D Mark III digital SLR camera. The new Canon PowerShot A570 IS digital camera is a 7 Megapixel model, equipped with a 4x optical zoom featuring optical Image Stabilizer, DIGIC III processor and for the first time the incredibly useful Face Detection Technology.

Not that long ago, a large number of manufacturers presented their digital camera line on the PMA show floor. It had already been predicted that there would no longer be room for quite so many, and thus only for a handful of manufacturers. This is partially right, however, the offer of compact and DSLR cameras does not seem to have decreased. The compact camera has matured and true innovations are over, while the digital SLR is conquering more and more market share. The Micro Four Thirds system camera manufactured by Panasonic and Olympus, is the new kid on the block. Whether more manufacturers will adopt the Micro Four Thirds system during the PMA International Convention and Trade Show, or whether they will come with their own 'Micro' system like Samsung, remains to be seen.
