The Coolpix L12 is the flagship model of Nikon’s “L” family of entry-level digicams. Nikon’s “L” series digicams closely resemble (in both form and function) Canon’s “A” series digital cameras, and there’s nothing wrong with that - imitation is, after all, the sincerest form of flattery. Canon’s “A” series digicams are justly famous for their practicality, flexibility, class leading performance, reasonable pricing, impressive build-quality, and amazing ease of use. The Nikon Coolpix L12 is a “minimalist look” doppelganger for Canon’s nifty Powershot A550.
For decades Nikon was the camera of choice for photojournalists and serious amateur shooters, but Canon has done a much better job since the beginning of the digital era - especially when it comes to creating fashionable and easy to use ultra-compact digital cameras. That may be about to change. Here are our first thoughts on the Nikon Coolpix S200.
With the Canon Powershot S5 IS, Canon has rolled out the long-anticipated successor to the S3 IS. Along with the S5 IS announcement, Canon is also announcing the Powershot SD850 IS. Even though both cameras are very different - the S5 IS is a larger ultra-zoom, and the SD850 IS is an ultra-compact - they still have a lot in common. The Powershot S5 IS will be available in June for $499 and the Powershot SD850 IS will ship in June for $399.
The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) has made its selections on what imaging products get their TIPA Awards for 2007. Read on to see the cameras from Nikon, Pentax, Canon, Panasonic, Olympus, Fujifilm, and others that went home with some acclaim.
Canon's product development folks are justly famous for creating ultra compact digital cameras that make taking photos a snap, but they've outdone themselves this time - the new Canon Powershot SD1000 Digital ELPH may be the "Brownie" box camera for the new millennium. Read on for our initial impressions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
