Casio Exilim EX-S10 Review at TrustedReviews
2008-04-02 21:57:56+10:00
Trusted Reviews has posted their review of the Casio Exilim EX-S10 where they write - 'As a small snapshooter the Casio may not suit everyone, even though it offers something for everyone. The handling is down to taste and personal physiology, so we can't expect the perfect camera, but the small form is quite fiddly. In terms of images the camera is also hit and miss, with reasonable but not great results. A stand out feature is the dynamic range...
Kodak EasyShare M893 IS Review at Pocketlint
2008-04-02 21:45:51+10:00
Pocket Lint reviews the Kodak EasyShare M893 IS and writes - 'The Kodak EasyShare M893 IS provides nice features within a tidy, pocketable design but image noise and sluggish performance don’t do it any favours. If you are after a reasonable snapper and you’ll print images at modest sizes you’ll be happy, but don’t buy this camera if it is 30 x 40-inch prints you’ll be wanting on a regular basis, as it might just leaving feeling disappointed.'

Canon PowerShot A470 Review at Imaging Resource
2008-04-01 21:54:02+10:00
Imaging Resource reviews the Canon PowerShot A470 and writes - 'Overall, the Canon PowerShot A470 is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It comes in fun colors, is easy to operate, yet offers a handful of more advanced features for more experienced users. It's small, pocketable, and has minimal controls to fiddle with. Add to this the Canon A470's great exposure and color handling, and a very low price and you have a classic bargain digital camera. What more could...

Sony DSC T300 Review at DP Review
2008-03-30 21:51:50+10:00
DP review has posted their review of the Sony DSC T300 and gives it a rating of 'above average'. They write - 'The question this camera raises is: if the extra megapixels added are too mushed-up by noise reduction to allow for large prints or cropping-in on images, then what are they good for? It's a question that we believe a lot of new cameras will have to answer, and needs to be considered by a potential T300 buyer.' Read...
Nikon D60 Review at Digital Photography Review
2008-03-30 21:47:20+10:00
DP Review has posted a review of the Nikon D60 and writes - 'In reality the biggest challenge the D60 faces is the competition; there's been an explosion of small, affordable entry-level SLRs in the 18 month or so since the D40 first appeared, and though I've never actually used live view outside the studio there's no denying it's a strong selling point at this end of the market, as is in-body stabilization. Cameras such as the Olympus E-410 (and...
