Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR

Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR Review thumbnail

The Fujifilm Finepix F200EXR is potentially one of the most revolutionary cameras of 2009. It features Fujifilm's innocuous sounding EXR technology, which rather cleverly turns the Fuji F200 into three cameras in one. The first EXR mode shoots a high-res 12 megapixel picture, the second takes a 6 megapixel photo with less noise, and the third combines two 6 megapixel images taken at different exposures to capture more dynamic range. Does Fujifilm's brave attempt to concentrate on image quality rather than more megapixels pay off? Carry on reading our detailed review to find out...

Nikon D5000

Nikon D5000 Review thumbnail

The Nikon D5000 is the latest digital SLR camera to incorporate a video recording mode, capable of producing 720p, 1280x720 pixel movies at 30fps complete with sound. The 12.3 megapixel D5000 also features a vari-angle LCD screen, making unusual picture compostions easier than with a fixed screen. More traditional SLR features include an ISO range of 100-6400, 4fps continuous shooting, and 11-point autofocus system. Retailing for £719.99 / €878.00 / $729.95 body only, or £799.99 / €972.00 / $849.95 with the 18-55mm VR kit lens, we find out if the Nikon D5000 can successfuly combine video and still images in our latest expert review.

Olympus E-450

Looking for the smallest DSLR camera in the world? Step forward the diminutive Olympus E-450, weighing in at less than 400 grams. The tiny E450 is based on the FourThirds standard, offering a 10 megapixel sensor, 2.7 inch LCD screen and brand new Art Filters for creating your own digitally enhanced master-pieces. Is the Olympus E-450 worth £350 body only / £450 single lens kit in the UK, or $699 for the double-lens kit in the US? Zoltan Arva-Toth finds out in the World's first online Olympus E-450 review.

Olympus E-P1

Olympus E-P1 Review thumbnail

The Olympus E-P1 brings together the image quality and interchangeable lenses of a digital SLR, the video capability of a camcorder, and the size and portability of a point and shoot, all in one compact package. The first Micro Four Thirds model from Olympus is inspired by the popular 1950's PEN series of film cameras, but is very much a product of the new millennium, offering a wealth of up-to-date must-have features. Mark Goldstein finds out if the E-P1 really is all the camera you will ever need in our latest expert review.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 Review thumbnail

The new Lumix DMC-GF1 camera seamlessly combines the image quality and features of a DSLR with the handling and ease-of-use of a compact - at least that's what Panasonic is trying to achieve. With a 12 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD, high-definition video and wealth of shooting modes for beginners and more advanced users, can the diminutive Panasonic GF1 live up to all the pre-release hype? Mark Goldstein discovers if this is THE camera of 2009...

Ricoh GR Digital III

Ricoh GR Digital III Review thumbnail

The GR Digital III is the latest version of Ricoh's pocket camera for prosumer photographers. With a fixed 28mm wide-angle lens, high-sensitivity 10 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD screen and optional optical viewfinder, the Ricoh GR Digital III is certainly a serious camera. Mark Goldstein finds out if the GR Digital III can justify its equally serious price-tag of £529 / $699.

Sigma DP2

Sigma DP2 Review thumbnail

The Sigma DP2 is a compact camera with a difference - at its heart is a large DSLR sensor that delivers better image quality than virtually all other compacts. The successor to the DP1 model has a new 41mm lens, faster operation and a more intuitive user interface, whilst retaining the same 14 megapixel sensor, 2.5 inch LCD screen and RAW file support. We find out if the Sigma DP2 is the right compact camera for you in our latest in-depth review...

Sony A230

Sony A230 Review thumbnail

The Sony A230 is the third and final model that we're reviewing in Sony's revamped lineup of entry-level DSLR cameras for 2009. Heavily based on the previous A200 model, the new A230 features a new look and feel designed to make it easier to use for people new to SLR photography, whilst retaining all the key features of its predecessor. These include a 2.7 inch LCD screen, anti-dust system, ISO range of 100-3200, in-built anti-shake, eye-start auto-focus and Dynamic Range Optimiser. Is the £530 / $650 Sony A230 the best camera for DSLR first-timers? Mark Goldstein finds out...
