Recent Camera Reviews are here again - Let’s go!
Let’s start with the Nikon D5000 that has gathered a great deal of attention lately. This 12.9 megapixel with DX-format CMOS sensor, 4fps continuous shooting and HD video capture has been reviewed at dpreview.com and they call its image quality and dynamic range undeniably impressive.
Digitalcamerainfo.com also did a reviewed of the D5000. They are a bit stricter - they found its noise performance good and liked the way it handled high-contrast scenes. But as to image sharpness, the camera didn’t meettheir high expectations.
Its lack of sharpness was also stated by Dcresource, but it is “like most of Nikon’s D-SLRs,” they said. Additionally, they mentioned the colors being generally pleasing, though reds could’ve been a bit more saturated.
The Pentax K-7, the most intriguing announcement of last month has been already reviewed – at photographyblog.com. Its specifications read like a keen photographer’s wish list and the image quality appeared to be very good with few drawbacks.
A non-SLR digital camera that uses interchangeable lenses, 12.1-megapixel Panasonic GH1 joins this company. Though it doesn’t have the mirror box and pentaprism arrangement, it produces image quality that is pretty close the Canon Rebel T1i’s. Its review has recently appeared at imaging-resource.com.
And what about the Canon Rebel T1i (aka 500D in the US, naturally) itself? Well, it has recently won a review at digitalcamerareview.com. According to it, this 15.1-megapixel camera with APS-C sized CMOS sensor delivers excellent HD video quality, exceptional ISO performance, andaccurate color and dynamic range.
12-megapixel Olympus Evolt E-620 SLR camera that crosses the bridge between entry level models E520 and E-450 and the semiprofessional E-30 DSLR was reviewed at letsgodigital.org. They don’t complain much about its image quality but would like to see its signal/noise ratio improved.
Dcresource are really glad that such a camera can enter your home without breaking the bank.
And at last we have the Sony A-380 that was reviewed by letsgodigital.org. This 14.2-megapixel camera is the successor of the Alpha 350 though only its design is entirely new. As to image quality, it was slightly improved.
Next time we’ll meet either lenses or compacts, I am not sure. Anyhow, stay in touch. Bye!
