The list of most popular cameras on our site didn't change too much between December 2005 and January of this year, but with all of the new cameras being announced, that is sure to change. Here are the cameras that visitors to DigitalCameraReview.com are looking at most.
The newly announced Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 will be, in my opinion, a very welcome update to its predecessor the TZ1. Panasonic has done a lot more than just give the TZ1 a resolution upgrade. The new TZ3 still features a 10x optical zoom, but also allows wide angle shooting (28mm equivalent) and brings the 3 inch screen to the show. It also shoots at up to 7.2 megapixels and includes Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S image stabilization system and Intelligent ISO Control.
One of eight new Panasonic cameras announced today, the ultra-zoom Lumix DMC-FZ8 is the successor to the FZ7. It features a 12x optical zoom with optical image stabilization, 7.2 megapixel resolution, 2.5 inch LCD, and a new Panasonic LSI Venus Engine III processor for better response times and quicker operation over its predecessor.
Panasonic has added three new digital cameras to it's slim and stylish FX line - the Lumix DMC-FX10, Lumix DMC-FX12, and Lumix DMC-FX30. The FX10 and FX12 are essentially the same camera, but with different resolutions (6 MP and 7.2 MP respectively). They both have 2.5 inch LCDs and 3x optical zoom lenses. The FX30 boasts that it is the world's slimmest digital camera with a wide angle (28mm equivalent). It also gets a 7.2 megapixel resolution, a 3.6x optical zoom and a 2.5 inch LCD.
In the midst of 8 new Lumix digital cameras from Panasonic, they're also updating the LZ line and an LS model. The Lumix DMC-LZ7, Lumix DMC-LZ6, and Lumix DMC-LS70 all feature what Panasonic is calling Intelligent Image Stabilization. Intelligent Image Stabilization is accomplished with the combination of optical image stabilization to counteract camera shake and Intelligent ISO Control to counteract subject movement.
Adobe has announced that the official 1.0 version of its Photoshop Lightroom software is now available for pre-order and will start shipping in mid-February. In appreciation of the feedback from beta users, Lightroom will be available for $199 until April 30, after which the price will be $299.
Today, Casio is announcing the Exilim EX-Z75 and Exilim EX-Z1050 digital cameras. As you can surmise from the model names, the Z75 is an update to the Z70 and the Z1050 is an update to the Z1000. The 7.2 megapixel Z75 offers a 2.6 inch wide LCD and 3x optical zoom. The 10.1 megapixel Z1050 also offers the 2.6 inch wide LCD and a 3x optical zoom. Read on for pictures and more details.
Samsung has rolled out a couple cameras today, the NV11 and L74 Wide. The NV11 features NV styling, 10 megapixel resolution, 5x optical zoom, 2.7 inch LCD and Smart Touch interface. The L74 Wide, as the name implies, features a wide angle (28mm) lens, 7 megapixel resolution, 3.6x optical zoom and a 3 inch touch screen.
As the DigitalCameraReview.com community grows, we're always looking for better and new ways for our community to interact. While we've had forums since we've started, there hasn't been a great way for uploading pictures or discussing and critiquing them. To satisfy this need, we've added on some photo gallery software to our forums.
Olympus has a couple "worlds first" claims to make with their newly announced SP-550 UZ. It is the world's first 18x optical zoom camera and has the world's fastest sequential shooting (at a lower resolution though). The Olympus SP-550 UZ also features 7.1 megapixel capture resolution, a 2.5 inch LCD, and dual image stabilization. It will be available in March 2007 for $499.
Olympus has updated its entry level FE line of digital cameras with four new models. The FE-210, FE-230, FE-240, and FE-250 will be available in February with prices ranging from $149 to $299. Ease of use and slim, sturdy metal bodies pretty much define the FE line and the new models represent, with bodies as slim as 0.6 inches.
The weatherproof Olympus Stylus 760 offers 7.1 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom, a 2.5 inch LCD and dual image stabilization. The Olympus Stylus 770 SW is shockproof, waterproof (now to 33 feet), and crushproof with a 7.1 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom, 2.5 inch LCD and LED illuminator. The Stylus 760 will be available in February for $249 and the Stylus 770SW will be available in March for $379.
