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 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...

It was once thought that the big megapixel counts would be limited to digital SLRs, the thinking being that anyone who might want a near 15MB image file at largest resolution would want SLR features as well. That's changed with a new breed of...

Fujifilm FinePix S2Pro

I was standing in Times Square, the Fuji S2 Pro with 28-105mm f/2.8 lens in my hands, when I chanced to glance over my shoulder and noticed someone peering at me. The quizzical expression on my face was greeted by a...

The best thing a point-and-shoot digital camera can do is be ready when you want to make a picture and Minolta's DiMAGE X (www.minoltausa.com) delivers the goods in style with a tiny...

Produced in cooperation with Panasonic, Leica's 4-megapixel Digilux 1 digital camera has a die-cast magnesium body and a form factor that echoes their traditional rangefinder cameras. When I first heard the Leica Digilux 1 would take styling cues...

Although we don't ordinarily review point-and-shoot 35s in Shutterbug, we were tempted to check out the new Minolta Freedom Zoom because of its autofocusing system. Minolta, as you might know, was a pioneer of AF technology with the Maxxum SLRs.

In December 2001, Nikon released their first prosumer 5 megapixel digital camera, the CoolPix 5000. Originally announced in September, this camera is a worthy successor to the immensely popular CoolPix line that includes Nikon's CoolPix 950, 990, and 995.

Sony has been the most successful seller of digital cameras in the last few years, with the largest share of the market for any camera maker. Considering a digital camera is more akin to a computer than to a camera that is perhaps not so...

Of all the little (lower resolution) point-and-shoots we've played with, we've got to say the CoolPix 775 was our favorite. It's so cute in a sturdy kind of way, handles well, is quick and responsive, and everything you need to know...

The good thing about digital point-and-shoots is that they're digital and they're point-and-shoot. The bad thing about digital point-and-shoots is that they're point-and-shoot and there's only so much you can do with...

In the prosumer market, digital point-and-shoots have reached a sort of consensual plateau--where certain capabilities are standard and even expected. Just about all of them have an LCD preview screen and an optical viewfinder, instant playback...

The Ricoh RDC-7 is a compact, sleek, little 3.3 megapixel camera with very sophisticated professional features (it can shoot up to a 13.5MB still-image file), in a prosumer point-and-shoot body. We took the Ricoh RDC-7 on a recent working/vacation to...

It wasn't that long ago I reported on a fun camera from Fujifilm, the shirt-pocket sized FinePix 4700. The follow up for the photo enthusiast, the new FinePix 4900, brings the same serious digital picture qualities with added features...
