Canon IXUS 300 HS Review

Canon IXUS 300 HS Review

Canon IXUS 300 HS Review


Still remember the Canon IXUS 300 HS, which is also known as the SD4000 IS Digital ELPH? PhotographyBLOG has a comprehensive review of this compact digital camera. As a reminder, the Canon IXUS 300 HS features a back-illuminated 10-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 3 inch LCD screen, a 3.8x (28-106mm lens) with a fastest aperture of f/2.0 and optical image stabilizer, a 3.7 frames per second burst mode at full resolution, a 720p HD movie recording with stereo sound and an HDMI port. Here is the verdict:


With a 10 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and fast f/2.0 lens, the IXUS 300 HS was always going to deliver the goods in terms of image quality. Noise doesn’t rear its ugly head until ISO 800, with even the fastest 3200 setting proving usable, something that you can’t say about too many compact cameras, and chromatic aberrations are also well controlled. Only a slight softness in the corners and some barrel distortion at the 28mm wide-angle setting detract from an otherwise stellar performance.


Available in blasted steel silver, matt black, glossy white and high gloss red, the Canon IXUS 300 HS retails for $350 each.

Olympus E-PL1 Review

Olympus E-PL1 Review


Dpreview has a comprehensive review of the recently released Olympus E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds camera. As a reminder, the E-PL1 boasts an accessory port for add-ons such as the electronic viewfinder. This 12-megapixel camera also features a simplified ‘Live Guide’ interface, a 2.7-inch LCD screen (230,000 dots), a built-in flash, a 720p HD video recording (MJPEG compression), ISO 100-3200, and 6 ‘Art Filter’ creative effects. Here is the verdict:


The E-PL1 is the first mirrorless camera to marry its size and image quality advantages to the accessibility of a compact camera. Olympus has simply slipped an easy-to-use interface on top of its PEN DSLR-in-a-smaller-box concept. That power is there if you want it, even if the pared back design means the operation isn’t as quick as it can be with the other PENs. Point-and-shoot users won’t get the very most out of the camera but, thanks to an excellent JPEG engine, it’s likely they’ll spend much of their time too delighted by their pictures to worry about it.


You can purchase the Olympus PEN E-PL1 for $599.99. See more pictures after the jump.

Panasonic FH22 Compact Digital Camera Review

Panasonic FH22 Compact Digital Camera Review

Panasonic FH22 Compact Digital Camera Review


Image-acquire has a brief review about the Panasonic FH22 compact digital camera. The 14MP digicam features an 8x optical zoom, a 4x digital zoom, a 3-inch LCD touchscreen display, a variety of scene and white balance modes, a nine-point AutoFocus, and a built-in flash. Here is a verdict:


Great resolution, onboard memory, plenty of features and a terrific zoom come together to make an excellent quality camera. Though again, it suffers from a slim design that may pose some challenges in ease of use, there’s more than enough here to make up for that.
