Point & Shoot Cameras

New Canon PowerShot G1 X

The new Canon PowerShot G1 X replaces the PowerShot G12, and offers improvements and advanced technologies that make this camera behave like it’s much larger than it really is. The compact G1 X is armed with a new 1.5-inch High Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which is larger than a 4/3" sensor, and nearly as big as the APS-C-sized sensors found in professional DSLRs.

New X-S1 Bridge Camera from Fujifilm

The new Fujifilm X-S1 is the third in a series of Fujifilm Premium X-series digital cameras. Complementing FujiFilm’s X100 and X10, the Fujifilm X-S1 is a robustly built bridge camera designed around a Fujifilm 12Mp 2/3" CMOS sensor and a fast-for-its-class, 26x, 24 to 624mm f/2.8-5.6 equivalent Fujinon zoom lens.

New Samsung DV300F DualView

Samsung has announced its newest “DualView” point-and-shoot camera, the Samsung DV300F DualView. As the DualView nameplate suggests, the new camera features a traditional 3.0-inch 460,000-dot TFT LCD on the rear of the camera and a smaller, 1.5-inch (61,000-dot) LCD on the faceplate, which enables you to shoot carefully composed self-portraits.

Cold-Weather Photography

Even though the leaves are down and your frost-laden lawn makes crunchy sounds when you cross it in the morning, that doesn’t mean it’s time to pack your cameras away until March or April; if you do, you’re going to miss some fine picture-taking opportunities.

Long Zoom Point-and-Shoot Camera Roundup

One of the things we appreciate about cutting edge lens technology is that it’s now possible to squeeze insanely wide range zoom lenses into palm-sized camera bodies.

The New Leica V-LUX 3

Leica has announced the arrival of its latest V-LUX series bridge camera, the Leica V-LUX 3. The new camera, which retains the familiar DSLR-like profile of its predecessors, features a 12.1MP (1/2.3") CMOS sensor that can capture stills at up to 12 frames per second at full resolution, as well as 1920 x 1080 / 60p Full HD video.

New Sakar Disney iPad Cameras for Kids

Many children with digital cameras, as well as some of their parents, have been stymied by their inability to join their iPads and cameras. That’s about to change with the release of the Sakar Disney iPad Camera. Soon to be available in one of five color/cartoon faces, the camera contains a 30-pin plug in its base, so the entire device can be connected directly to an iPad or iPad 2.  

Bridge Camera Roundup

Despite the growing availability of some impressively small mirrorless digital-camera systems, the market for bridge-style cameras continues to hold its own. If you think about it, it’s kind of cool to know you can purchase a technology-packed digital camera that can capture up to 10 frames per second, HD video with Dolby sound, and sports  a fixed 36x optical zoom lens no less for a few hundred dollars.

Sports Action Cam Roundup

Sports-action cameras are hugely popular, as they allow professional and amateur athletes to capture their activities in high-resolution stills and high-definition video. Friends and family can’t deny your fanciful claims when you have stills and video to back them up.

Tough and Rugged Point-and-Shoot Cameras

When you read the selling points of professional-grade cameras such as Canon’s 1D series and Nikon’s D3 series, the manufacturers make a point of discussing the heavy-duty construction and exhaustive measures of weatherproofing that go into their respective cameras.
