Nikon Coolpix P7000 review

The Nikon Coolpix P7000 is being pitched by the imaging giant as the crowning glory of its compact Coolpix range to date, aimed squarely at the dedicated snapper who needs a high spec compact digital camera that still manages to pack many of the settings and options of a full DSLR. Is it a yay or nay from us? Only once you’ve delved into our Nikon Coolpix P7000 review will you know whether to raise a royal cheer or blow a common raspberry.

Canon PowerShot SX30 IS

The first thing to say in a review of the Canon PowerShot SX30 IS is that it has a rather large zoom. An enormous zoom in fact, which extends out to a length that’s so disproportionate to its compact size that it’s almost embarrassing to use. So much so that you shouldn’t actually buy one? Find out here with our full Canon PowerShot SX30 IS review.

Sony NEX-5 review: Micro Four Thirds beater?

The Sony NEX-5 clearly isn’t a DSLR or a point-and-shoot compact camera as we know them. It lacks the through-the-lens optical viewfinder and mirror box of a DSLR and is far more powerful and flexible than the average compact – so where does it sit it the market? Can it provide a middle ground alternative to the Micro Four Thirds range already on sale? Find out in this part of our Sony NEX-5 review.

Sony NEX-5 review: Shooting skills

We can rave about the Sony NEX-5 and its slim size until the cows come home, but it all counts for naught if the little snapper doesn’t take decent shots. With a DSLR-sized sensor on board, there’s no reason it shouldn’t – we took it out and about to find out, so read on for the verdict, and some HD video sample clips in this part of our Sony NEX-5 review.

Ricoh CX3

The Ricoh CX3 is the latest premium compact camera to offer a back-illuminated CMOS sensor. Cast your mind back a few months to the launch of the Sony HX1 and WX1 snappers and you may remember them getting “mad props” for their superb low light performance – well, that was down to Sony’s Exmor R back-illuminated sensor, and now Ricoh has stuffed something similar into its own camera. Does it deliver in the dimness? Find out in our full Ricoh CX3 review.
