The Nikon Coolpix 3100 is the successor to last year’s S3000, and as such it shares a lot of its predecessor’s qualities – it’s a cheap and cheerful compact that’ll fit easily in any pocket. And it comes at a price that’s easy on the wallet. But that’s not to say its specs are straight from the bargain bin, far from it: 14-megapixel sensor, 720p HD movie recording, and a 5x optical zoom.

We took it out for a spin to see just what it could do.

Nikon Coolpix S9100 review

The Nikon Coolpix S9100 is Nikon’s latest compact camera. It’s aimed squarely at the consumer arena, and after plenty of DSLRs of late and a “prosumer” compact from the imaging giant, that’s a good thing. A lot of similar cameras in this target market try to be all things to all men. By packing in supposedly ‘pro’ functionality, most of these competitors muddy what a good point and shoot should be – fun, and easy to use.

For the Nikon S9100, fun and easy pretty much sums it up. It is by no means lacking in punch though; with a 12.1MP sensor, 18X zoom lens, image stabilization – even at high zoom, powerful built in flash and macro mode.
In this Nikon Coolpix S9100 review, we”ll take a look at the highs and lows of this great little camera.

The Nikon Coolpix P500 is a strange thing. It is aimed at those who are bored with point and shoot, but not quite ready for the dizzying array of buttons and options of a DSLR.

On paper the Nikon Coolpix P500 is a very tempting camera. It features a Nikkor 36X zoom lens, 12.1 megapixel sensor, Full 1080p HD video recording and a large 3-inch angled viewing screen. In this Nikon Coolpix P500 review we’ll see if it performs as well as it claims to do.

Panasonic GF2 review

The Panasonic GF2 is currently the world’s smallest interchangeable lens camera. Physically similar to 2009’s DMC-GF1, it dispenses with many of the controls in favour of a touchscreen, leaving it trimmer and lighter than its predecessor. Is it a DSLR-beater in a diminutive shell? Read the rest of our Panasonic GF2 review to find out.

Nikon D7000 review

The Nikon D7000 is Nikon’s latest consumer-professional crossover camera, offering a raft of features at a price that won’t bankrupt. Though aimed at the amateur enthusiast photographer, the feature set allows for plenty of customisation should you want to get a little more hands-on. Amongst its feature list the D7000 offers a 16.2 megapixel sensor, full HD movie recording and image stabilisation, as well as dual SD card slots for maximum storage capacity. It is however not without fault. Let’s delve a little deeper into the features to find out where it shines and where it falls down, in our full Nikon D7000 review.

Has it? Read on for our full Sony A33 review, and our verdict of whether Sony has come through on its promise.

Nikon D3100 review

The Nikon D3100 is the Japanese firm’s latest video-equipped DSLR, and its most movie-centric swappable lens camera yet. While old Nikons shot Motion JPEGs and were restricted to 720p HD, the Nikon D3100 shoots full 1080p video in a far more widely supported MPEG4 H.264 format. Sadly, Nikon’s designers haven’t quite gone the whole hog and made the D3100 a real movie-maker’s dream – read on to find out why in our Nikon D3100 review.
