SeaLife, maker of dive cameras, is showing off what they call the world's first truly waterproof, shockproof digital camera at the Outdoor Retailer Open Air Outdoor Demo Days. The ECOshot camera takes 6 megapixel pictures, is waterproof to 75 feet and is shockproof against a 6 foot drop. Oh, and they'll also be running it over with an SUV during live demos.
In addition to the three new NV cameras announced today, the Samsung i85 digital camera is also being announced. It's the latest model in a generation of very slim cameras capable of doubling as a personal media player (PMP). The Samsung i85 features 8 megapixel resolution, 5x optical zoom, 3 inch LCD, and measures 3.74" x 2.42" x 0.8".
Samsung has updated its stylish NV line with three new digital cameras. The NV20 offers 12 megapixels, the NV15 comes in at 10 megapixels, and the NV8 takes 8 megapixel shots. All three of the new digital cameras have the Smart Touch interface that appears on most NV models.
The new Kodak Easyshare C513 is the first Easyshare camera to feature the Kodak KAC-05011 CMOS image sensor. The camera is an entry-level camera, taking pictures at 5 megapixels, with a 3x optical zoom and 2.4 inch LCD. The CMOS sensor provides a lower cost and, ideally, better noise performance.
In addition to the new ultra-zoom Lumix DMC-FZ18, Panasonic is also rolling out two new models for their FX line. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 will be available in September at MSRPs of $300 and $350 respectively. Both cameras take 8.1 megapixel images, have a 28mm equivalent lens with a 3.6x optical zoom, and the same shooting modes. They really just differ in LCD size and color availability.
Panasonic's latest addition to their FZ ultra-zoom line is the 18x optical zoom-equipped Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18. The nice optically stabilized long lens can also do wide angle (28mm equivalent) and the camera can capture 8.1 megapixel images. Panasonic has also rolled out an "Intelligent Auto" mode, which provides continuous AF, automatic scene selection and a face detection system.
I just received a GE E850 digital camera to review and want to share a few first thoughts about the camera as a prelude to the full review that we'll finish in a few weeks. The GE (yes, as in General Electric) E850 is an 8 megapixel camera with 5x optical zoom and 3 inch LCD.
Serious photographers are a very demanding breed, but camera manufacturers absolutely adore them. A perfect example of this corporate affection is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8; an imaging tool that caters specifically (with a couple of important cautions) to photography enthusiasts.
