Canon Powershot SX230 HS

Take a look with us at the Canon Powershot DSC-SX230 HS, a travel zoom point-and-shoot camera with Canon Movie Digest mode and a 14x lens that zooms from a wide 28 to 392mm (equivalent). The SX230 has a 12MP backlit CMOS sensor, sensitive to ISO 3200. It can capture good low-light pictures and has full 1080 HD video at 30 fps for detailed motion pictures with stereo sound, slow motion up to 240 fps and a GPS function to geo-tag your photos.

The P7000 is truly an advanced compact digital camera, offering one of the biggest 10MP sensors in its class, almost all the manual controls a DSLR would have and with some important options about which very few compact digital cameras can boast.

Nikon CoolPix P7000

The new Nikon CoolPix P7000 fills a slot that's been glaringly open for quite some time—namely, a high performance, point-and-shoot camera designed with the sort of features advanced amateurs and pros seek in a compact camera.

7 Digicams you can Dunk, Drop, & Freeze

If there’s anything tougher than defining the ‘perfect’ camera it would have to be defining the word ‘perfect’. For some folks the perfect camera is small. For others the perfect camera has ‘’lots of pixels’.  And for some it simply boils down to ‘Can I stick it in my pocket, sit on it, and then go diving in sub-freezing water with it… and oh… is it available in red?’


Nikon's CoolPix S8000 Actually is Rather Cool

I'm always on the lookout for digicams that stand out from the crowd, and considering how crowded the marketplace is, most digicams tend to blend into the masses rather than stand out. An exception to this sad situation is Nikon's CoolPix S8000, a little hottie I've had an opportunity to tool around with for the past week or so. Clad in a brushed - but not brash-looking - red aluminum housing, the S8000 passes muster on several counts. First off, the camera features a 5.4 - 54mm/3.5-5.6 ED VR zoom lens that takes in the equivalent field-of-view of a 30-300mm lens.  Anybody looking for a good pocket-sized travel camera?
