Nikon Coolpix S5 Review

Imaging Resource reviews Nikon Coolpix S5 on which they write:

For starters, the Nikon S5’s svelte metallic chassis is one of the thinnest I’ve used, making it the perfect camera to slip into your pocket and forget about until you’re ready to take pictures. Along with being thin, the camera boasts a distinctive wave-like design that’s less than a inch thick on the right side, providing a convenient handgrip. The left half of the camera has a slight ripple to house the impressive 3x optical Nikkor ED glass lens which does not protrude from the body even at full zoom. The majority of the rear of the Nikon S5 is taken up by the camera’s nice 2.5-inch LCD which produces great playback and live preview thanks to the screen’s 230,000 pixels.

This camera also features PictMotion function which gives users the ability to pick their favorite shots, movies, and music to create slideshows. It comes with PictBridge and USB connectivity and 21MB of internal memory.

Canon PowerShot S3 IS Review

There’s an excellent review of Canon’s 6 megapixel PowerShot S3 IS over at Digital Camera Info.

The Canon PowerShot S3 IS comes to the ultra-zoom digital camera market with a unique set of features. It has the 12x optical zoom lens that qualifies it as part of the ultra-zoom market and couples it with an optical image stabilization system that works incredibly well. Canon put the lens on a chunky SLR-shaped body that looks almost professional with its black finish. The S3 has lots of options in its movie mode that aren’t available on any other digital camera and includes dual recording buttons so users can snap full-resolution pictures in the middle of a video clip. The optical zoom functions in the movie mode – and even looks smooth with the image stabilization system activated. Users can adjust everything from the audio sampling rate to the microphone level and wind filter feature. The still recording features are just as extensive. Full manual control is available, although the manual focusing feature is difficult to execute with the poor viewfinder and LCD resolution.

It’s a great prosumer camera with 12x optical zoom that can shoot videos at 30 frames per second with stereo sound and take pictures at the same time. It’s packed with a 2.0 inch Vari-Angle LCD and USB 2.0 connectivity for those self-photos and those hard to reach shots. Really worth checking out.

Fujifilm Z3

This Fujifilm Finepix Z3 offers ISO 1600-level sensitivity to capture objects taken in low-light conditions without having to rely on the flashlight. This camera’s flashlight is smart enough to expose the background without over-lighting it. The Z3’s dual-shot mode takes two pictures when the shutter’s pressed, one with flash and one without, allowing the snapper to choose which one looks the best. Fujifilm Z3 features 5.1-megapixel resolution, 10MB on-board memory, and a scratch resistant 2.5-inch LCD display. With a 3.0x optical zoom and several shooting modes, you will have everthing you need to take good photos. Via TEB.
