The latest entry level model in Pentax's extensive line of point & shoot digital cameras is the Optio E30. As with any digital camera, there are pros and cons. This particular camera is considered "entry level", with a straighforward feature set, low price and ease of use as its selling points. Bottom line, the Optio E30 is great for those consumers getting their first digital camera.
The Kodak Easyshare V803 is a compact, stylish, easy-to-use, and very pocketable AE (programmed auto exposure) 8 megapixel point and shoot digital camera. The V803 is available in a rainbow array (pink bliss, red shimmer, cosmic blue, mystic purple, golden dream, white glaze, silver essence, slate gray and java black) of 'hot' colors. Here are our first thoughts about the camera.
Pentax's K10D flagship dSLR is up against some pretty stiff competition, including Canon’s EOS 30D and Nikon’s D80, but (for many users) the K10D may actually be the best deal in the mid-level dSLR class. Here is the preview of our full review that you'll see in a few days.
Vivitar showed five new digital cameras this year at PMA in Las Vegas. There's the waterproof 6200W, the 7 megapixel 7388, 6 megapixel 6385u, 10 megapixel X625, and 5 megapixel DVR530.
Friday started off with a Panasonic press event, riding Hummer H1s through the desert to test their MEGA O.I.S image stabilization and Intelligent ISO Control, they also stopped to give our bums a rest and take pictures of the Red Rock Canyon area. Today, I met with Zoran - the folks behind the Coach series of imaging processors, Sandisk, Kodak, GE, Canon, and Olympus.
A quick summary of the first day of the PMA trade show. Sony officially announced their Cyber-shot DSC-G1 and plans for upcoming digital SLRs. I got to see some great bags from Lowepro and Crumpler. Fujifilm's IR Simple transfer capability is very cool. Other stops were at Panasonic, Nikon, Samsung and HP.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G1 is Sony's first foray into wireless-enabled digital cameras and they're going big. The G1 can transfer images to any Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) device wirelessly, has a 3.5 inch LCD, 2GB of internal memory and can take 6 megapixel images. All this camera comes at a cost though, with the G1 retailing for $600, starting in April.
Along with several other imaging related announcements, HP has introduced three new digital cameras at PMA. The HP Photosmart R837 is a bit of a design departure from previous HP cameras, offers "pet-eye reduction" and the ability to tag your images in-camera. The HP Photosmart M437 and Photosmart M537 update their entry-level cameras, starting at $109.
General Imaging is building digital cameras to be branded by GE. I was able to spend some time with the leadership team at General Imaging and play around with the cameras a bit. There are a few hands-on shots when you read on.
