At first glance the Casio EXILIM Pro seems rather unassuming, much like many compact digicams that fill store shelves these days. But the Pro moniker catches the eye, and you wonder what's so Pro about it. Well, there are any number of features of higher...

Attendees at PMA this year who visited the Epson booth may have noticed a camera displayed under glass. It was the new Epson R-D1 digital rangefinder, a classic body that accepts most Leica L- and M-mount lenses and is made by Cosina with digital components created by Seiko-Epson. Not long after...

Until recently, a 6-megapixel sensor was considered to be the ultimate available in a digital camera with built-in lens, but that changed suddenly when five manufacturers released 8-Mp models. Boasting numerous advanced features, through the lens viewing...

Early digital cameras looked
anything like cameras. Can anyone forget Apple's QuickTake, a.k.a.
the AMC Pacer of digicams? With increasing competition from cell phone
cameras, savvy manufacturers haves...

Minolta made its name years back with 35mm SLR autofocus cameras and has since gone on to bring their expertise to digital cameras as well. So, when the Minolta DiMAGE A1 digital camera was introduced I was curious to test its various focusing modes and features. This report concentrates on...

When we first saw the Pentax Optio 33WR it was at a photo trade show inside a goldfish bowl...filled with water. This is not the usual or recommended storage for a digital camera, especially with all the circuits and batteries etc. inside. This eye-catching display got our attention, so we...

The integral lens SLR camera does have some precedent in the film world--it's what Olympus called the Z-SLR a number of years back, and the camera models in that line-up enjoyed limited success and spawned a group of digital Z-SLRs called the E-10 and E-20. Now that Olympus has cast...

The first digital camera to incorporate Fujifilm's Super CCD HR (High Resolution) the FinePix S7000 is a full-featured 6.3-megapixel model that can generate 4048x3040 recorded pixels through in camera interpolation. More sophisticated than the earlier Super CCD III, the HR sensor is said...

A compact digital camera is certainly convenient, but petite size has one drawback. The LCD monitors of most digicams are simply too small for convenient image viewing while shooting or during playback. Until recently, a 1.8" screen was common; today, an increasing number of cameras are...

Overexposure has always been the bane of photographers, be they the film or digital variety. If using negative film, moderate overexposure could be easily handled when printing. But overexpose a slide film and colors, details, and especially bright areas would become washed out, with subsequent...

While subcompact digicams are nice, many of us may feel they're too small to work easily with, and often too costly, given a similar feature set. The C-4000 provides a workable alternative--not too pricey and compact, but not overly so. On top of that, the camera sports 4-Mp capture...

You don't normally think of any point-and-shoot camera as ideal for photographing models, but you never know when a great photo op is going to present itself. That's why I like to carry a small, high quality digital camera with me at all times. Right now Minolta's DiMAGE Xt...

The most prolific manufacturer of digital cameras, Sony was also one of the first to introduce a 5-megapixel model, the DSC-F707 in 2001, later replaced by the F717. The company's latest high-end 5-Mp camera, the DSC-V1, should become more popular, thanks to its smaller size and lighter...

The 5-megapixel Olympus C-5050 Zoom is not a camera to be taken lightly, despite its seemingly familiar point-and-shoot look. I've had this camera long enough to realize there is considerable potential wrapped up in a package surprisingly this small and lightweight, despite a modest 3x...
