Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd review


Dennis Hissink : 2007-12-27 20:00:00
Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd digital Megazoom camera review : A number of manufacturers have dropped their Megazoom models to make room for the entry level digital SLR cameras. On the one hand that is very understandable since the prices of both models are almost alike, but on the other hand; a Megazoom camera is an entirely different concept than a system camera such as the DSLR. Fujifilm however has not much of a choice in this because they don’t have the entry level SLR camera in their assortment which leaves sufficient room to fill the gap to the S5 Pro DSLR with a Megazoom camera like the Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd. The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd has to compete directly with cameras like the Olympus SP-560 UZ and the Panasonic Lumix FZ18. Read our Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd review.


Panasonic TZ3 Underwater review


Ilse Jurriën : 2007-12-22 13:55:00
Panasonic TZ3 Underwater review : I have the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 at my disposal for the weekend. Often people don't only go scuba diving when they go on holiday or a weekend away but they combine scuba diving with other activities. At times like that it is very convenient to have a camera at hand that serves both purposes. The underwater photography requires a camera that is not too large so it can easily be taken along. Besides that wide angle is an advantage in underwater shooting, because a wide angle lens lets you shoot close to the subject. This means less water in between the camera and the object and thus less dirt and more colour in the pictures.

Nikon D300 Field Test Antarctica


Mark Peters : 2007-12-21 13:10:00
Jan Vermeer, a passionate Dutch Wildlife photographer, has made a special journey lately with the aim of capturing the emperor penguin in its natural habitat using the Nikon D300. We have obtained the exclusive rights for our German edition and we gladly refer you to the Nikon D300 test in practice made by Jan Vermeer. The Nikon D300 has recently become available and is receiving a lot of attention since then. And for a good reason listening to Jan's comments on the D300! Jan Vermeer has been shooting with the Nikon D2x for a while now but has to admit that the D300 has a lot to offer and that it turns out to be an ideal second body for the photographer he is for future projects. The Nikon D300 has been available since last November.


Canon 40D review


Ilse Jurriën : 2007-12-18 00:55:00
Canon 40D SLR review : Canon listened very well to their users and testers. The Canon 40D SLR camera has been improved significantly compared to the 30D. And although most people would look at the sensor immediately, the main improvement is not found there. The amount of pixels has been increased alright to 10 million but pixels are only one thing in a camera. The EOS 40D has been equipped with the latest DIGIC III processor and that is a more important step than you would think. Not only does the new processor improve the image quality, in addition the DIGIC III enables Live View. And it enables faster processing of the signal; the image speed got enhanced to 6.5 frames per second.

Nikon D80 Shark Photography Expedition Bahamas


Mark Peters : 2007-12-17 01:04:00
Nikon D80 Shark Photography Expedition Bahamas : The Sea & Sea DX-D80 is a professional underwater housing, but because it is very easy to use the beginner underwater photographer can use it as well. It is quite robust; it can be taken down up to 60 meters. Without the digital SLR camera it weighs 2700 grams, which is still quite heavy. Luckily it is easy to handle, and because of the neutral weight underwater, you do not notice that it is heavy. The back of the underwater housing is made of polycarbonate and the front is made of corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy, for maximal stiffness and a solid grip. It is too bad that it is not made completely of aluminium, because this makes it more robust.


Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 review


Dennis Hissink : 2007-12-11 14:38:00
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 digital camera review : I have said it before: Panasonic are setting the world on fire. Even more so; Panasonic's digital camera assortment is impressive and mature and Panasonic does not yield to the established lot, the renowned photo manufacturer. When we take a look at the assortment there is a choice for everyone, from simple entry level to a stylish design, from compact to advanced Megazoom and even a digital SLR camera recently, that was warmly welcomed worldwide. For this review I chose Panasonic's new Megazoom model; the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ18. This model got introduced in the summer of 2007 and was the result of a few generations of Megazoom cameras.

Nikon D3 Sample Photos


Dennis Hissink : 2007-12-07 00:00:00
Nikon D3 Sample Photos : During a short stay in Florence, Italy, I used the new Nikon D3 professional digital SLR camera mainly in the evening and on many beautiful historical places, mostly inside museums and old buildings, to take a number of test pictures. Already various reactions of preproduction model testers and professional photographers have been published and in general one can say that the Nikon D3 is an impressive new Digital SLR and a strong weapon for Nikon to (re)gain their share of the professional photography market. I have used the Nikon D3 in combination with the new AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED and the AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lenses and additionally the 10.5mm f/2.8G ED DX Fisheye Nikkor. Take a look at our Nikon D3 sample photos!


Ricoh GR Digital II Preview


Dennis Hissink : 2007-12-05 18:50:00
Ricoh GR Digital 2 Digital Camera Preview : Two years have already passed since Ricoh digitalized the famous GR camera and introduced the GR Digital. In September 2005 I received a pre-production model of the Ricoh GR Digital and now, two years later, the successor lies in front of me: the Ricoh GR Digital II. Over the past few years many hundreds of new digital cameras have been introduced and to say that each and every one of them is a unique piece, would be exaggerated. The majority of these digital cameras belongs to the compact camera category and these cameras offer more or less the same functions and quality compared with each other. Once in a blue moon a camera will stand out and boost on a unique concept. Read the full Ricoh GR Digital II preview!


Canon PowerShot G9 Review


Dennis Hissink : 2007-12-04 20:05:00
Canon PowerShot G9 digital camera review : Sometimes manufacturers actually listen to testers and users of digital cameras. In any case Canon did when developing the PowerShot G7. A terrific camera except for one minus; no RAW format was available and especially the photographer wanting a compact camera besides his DSLR was disappointed. But the successor, the Canon PowerShot G9, does offer RAW format making this top compact camera a very interesting one for the demanding and the professional photographer. Adding RAW format is not the only thing Canon has changed on the G9. The Canon G9 is now equipped with a new image sensor with 12 million pixels.

Canon PowerShot S5 review at PhotographyBLOG


Mark Peters : 2007-12-03 14:19:31
Canon PowerShot S5 review at PhotographyBLOG : DIWA Awards member Mark Goldstein from PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Canon PowerShot S5 IS Megazoom camera. The Canon Powershot S5 camera features Super Macro mode with 0cm shooting distance and optional Close-Up lens 500D (58mm) allow for detailed macro photography. Safety Zoom allows users to extend the camera's zoom range without interpolation affecting image quality - images can be captured at up to 24x zoom with enough resolution for lab-quality postcard (10 x 15cm) prints. Photographers can also enable the Digital Tele-Converter3 feature for added telephoto reach (1.6x or 2.0x) on every shot, without the reduction in aperture typically caused by optical tele-converters.

Mark Peters : 2007-12-03 14:05:11

The 7 Megapixel compact Canon A550 features a Movie mode for VGA quality clips with audio of up to 60 minutes in length or 1GB file size. Movies and photos can be viewed on a TV via the AV out connection.

Nikon S500 review at Photoxels


Mark Peters : 2007-12-03 13:52:16
Nikon S500 review at Photoxels : DIWA member Yin Wong from Photoxels has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix S500 digital compact camera. The Nikon S500 features proven lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) technology originally developed for interchangeable lenses used with Nikon SLR camera systems. Nikon's exclusive VR system provides the ability to shoot at shutter speeds as much as three steps slower without blurring the image, helping to overcome camera shake and stabilize shots of unsteady subjects. The Nikon Coolpix S500 powers up in an impressive 0.8 seconds and has a practically imperceptible shutter release time lag of less than 0.005 seconds. High-ISO automatically sets the optimal ISO and works with VR (Vibration Reduction).

Olympus E-3 Hands-On Review in Istanbul Turkey


Dennis Hissink : 2007-11-28 14:04:00
Olympus E-3 Hands-On Review : Not even 3 weeks after returning from my trip to Kenya, where I attended the EOS Safari on the invitation of Canon, I found the next invitation on my digital doormat. This time it concerned an invitation from Olympus to Istanbul, Turkey, for the introduction of the long expected successor of the E1 to the press. Journalists from all over the world were flown into Turkey in groups to join the ten day event. Besides a number of Dutch colleagues, the Belgian and English press were also present during my stay. Upon our arrival at Istanbul's Atatürk airport a bus took us to the famous Topkapi palace. A guide gave us a tour through this beautiful cultural heritage and we were able to visit a few sections.

Canon IXUS 860IS review


Dennis Hissink : 2007-11-25 21:00:00
Canon IXUS 860 IS review : Canon decided to introduce their new assortment of digital cameras for the second half of the year in August 2007. A new IXUS was one of the many cameras that got added to the Canon compact camera line; the Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS. There is no stopping the success of the IXUS and Canon know how to continuously and rapidly renew or at least add to the IXUS assortment with improved specifications. The Canon IXUS 860 IS camera is a successor to the IXUS 850 and is more or less a logical upgrade. The biggest changes compared to its predecessor are obvious in one glance when you take a look at the rear of the camera. The large 3-inch sized monitor covers approximately 70% of the back.

HP Photosmart R937 Review


Dennis Hissink : 2007-11-20 21:00:00
HP Photosmart R937 digital camera review : During HP labs event in Lisbon every participant received a digital compact camera to play with for one week. Of course this is an ideal way to get acquainted with the latest top model of the American brand. Certainly an experience that asked for more, so right after this we requested a model to put to the test and to offer you an extensive HP Photosmart R937 review. One of the extraordinary features on the HP R937 camera is its touch screen. Of course HP are not the first to apply a touch screen but it being such a huge screen is a unique experience. It should not surprise anyone that HP is offering a touch screen. The brand is aiming at the consumer.

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III Safari Photo Gallery


Dennis Hissink : 2007-11-09 22:46:02
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III photo gallery : When you are offered the opportunity to work with the latest digital equipment on a location you will probably never visit again; you do not have to think twice! I am talking about an invitation from Canon Europe on a press trip to Kenya with a number of colleagues from the Netherlands and many other countries. No less than 80 journalists from Europe, among them four colleagues from the Netherlands, were flown to Nairobi, Kenya, at the invitation of Canon. In Nairobi small groups were formed to fly to the Borana ranch in the Laikipia area, north of Nairobi and situated by the Mount Kenya. The Canon EOS Safari trip coincided with 20 years of EOS; a unique memorable moment in the digital world!

Sony A700 review


Dennis Hissink : 2007-11-06 19:30:00
Sony A700 review : Finally Sony are making good their promise to bring a real Alpha system on the market that not only appeals to the amateur but the semi-pro and even the professional photographer alike with the introduction of the Sony Alpha 700. I do not wish to claim the Sony A700 to be the ultimate tool for professionals. These photographers most possibly use a DSLR of the same brand they already own as a second camera. However; a start has been made. Many people were eagerly awaiting the Sony DSLR-A700. During the presentation of the Sony Alpha A700 in Italy, I was able to work briefly with Sony's new addition. Thereafter Sony gave us the opportunity to make an in-depth review about the Sony A700, read our experiences with this DSLR camera in the following review.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Review


Dennis Hissink : 2007-10-18 20:01:00
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera Review : The successor of the Lumix TZ1, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3, was introduced in January of the year 2007. Did the Panasonic TZ1 impress us with its compact size and onboard 10x Leica zoom lens; the Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera even exceeds its predecessor. The resolution went up to 7 Megapixels and even more important, the focal range, although staying the same with its 10x optical zoom, gained a wide angle. As a result, this compactcamera has a fine 28-280mm range, absolutely a good achievement. It means that Panasonic is one of few manufacturers to deliver a digital compact camera with an optical zoom lens that is able to offer wide angle.
