The PMA trade show starts next week and a lot of the new cameras have already been announced. After the show, many of these new cameras will start to ship, so we might see a few changes in our most popular list. So far though, things have stayed pretty much the same. This list of cameras shows you what visitors of DigitalCameraReview.com looked at over the past month.
The two new digital cameras in Sony's ultra-slim T line are sure to keep the fashion-conscious equipped with the latest cameras. In bodies less than a half-inch thick, the 8 megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-T20 and Cyber-shot DSC-T100 come in multiple colors and the T100 even gets a new 5x optical zoom. The T100 will be available in March for $400 and the T20 will be available in April for $330.
Sony has announced two new digital cameras to update their ultra-zoom H series. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7 and Cyber-shot DSC-H9 will ship in April 2007 for $400 and $480 respectively. The new cameras improve upon their successors (the H2 and H5) with new Sony technology (like the Bionz processor) and increasing their zoom capabilities to 15x optical zooms.
In addition to the new cameras announced today in Sony's ultra-slim T and ultra-zoom H lines, there are three new entries to the compact W line: the Cyber-shot DSC-W200, Cyber-shot DSC-W90, and Cyber-shot DSC-W80. All three cameras have 3x optical zooms, 2.5 inch LCDs and they vary by capture resolution with the W200 coming in at 12 megapixels, the W90 at 8.1 megapixels and the W80 at 7.2 megapixels.
Soon, we'll be posting a full review of the Olympus Stylus 770 SW, but wanted to give you some of our first impressions of the latest shockproof, wateproof camera from Olympus. The Stylus 770 SW is the successor to the Stylus 720 SW and still features 7.1 megapixel resolution, 3x optical zoom and 2.5 inch LCD. There are also some improvements and new cool features.
The new Coolpix S10 is the latest version of Nikon’s iconic swivel-zoom camera design. The S10 is a metal bodied 6 megapixel digital camera with a 10X (38mm -380mm in 35mm equivalence) stabilized zoom, a hi-res (230,000 pixel) 2.5 inch LCD screen, 15 Scene Modes, Face Priority AF, a top sensitivity of ISO 800, and In-Camera red-eye fix.
Canon decided to break the mold a little bit with the introduction of the Powershot TX1. This very compact 7.1 megapixel camera features a 10x optical zoom, image stabilized lens, 720p HD video recording, 1.8 inch Vari-Angle LCD - all in a camera the size of a deck of cards. The TX1 will be available starting in March 2007 for $499.
Fujifilm is getting ready for PMA with three new digital cameras. The entry level 8.3 megapixel Fujifilm Finepix A820 and 9 megapixel Fujifilm Finepix A900 will be available in May 2007 for $179 and $199, respectively. The more advanced 7.1 megapixel, 10x optical zoom Fujfilm Finepix S700 in March 2007 for $249.
In addition to all the new Powershots, Canon is announcing the EOS-1D Mark III professional digital SLR. The Mark III gets a new 10.1 megapixel APS-H sized CMOS sensor, dual DIGIC III processors, and a Live View, 3 inch LCD. The Mark III will be available in the Spring for about the same price as its predecessor, the Mark II N. By the way, sorry to disappoint all those waiting on the 40D - those rumors may have to be delayed.
The two new digital cameras in Canon's "A" line are the Powershot A570 IS and Powershot A560 with both cameras bringing the DIGIC III processor to the A series. The 7.1 megapixel, 4x optical zoom A570 IS seems to be a way to get Canon's image stabilization available at a lower price point. The 7.1 megapixel, 4x optical zoom Powershot A560 camera helps fill out the line.
The two new additions to Canon's compact and stylish SD line are the Powershot SD750 and Powershot SD1000. They're both 7.1 megapixel cameras with 3x optical zooms and they also have the new DIGIC III processor. The SD750 has a 3 inch screen and the SD1000 gets an optical viewfinder and 2.5 inch LCD.
Pentax announced two new additions to their Optio line today. The Pentax Optio A30 is their "advanced" model that replaces the A20. It features 10 megapixels of resolution, a high resolution 2.5 inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, and CCD-shift image stabilization. The Pentax Optio W30 updates their line of waterproof digital cameras and shoots at 7.1 megapixels with a 3x optical zoom and 2.5 inch LCD.
