The Full Review

Canon’s PowerShot A810 is the entry-level compact for the layman according to Photography Blog because “prove a hit with newcomers to photography.”  

At the price, this camera seems to be a just-right balance in features and specs.  In fact, it “appears to be identical, if not slightly better than models we’ve seen at a higher price point.”

Though it is an ultra-simple point-and-shoot, it also provides a plethora of buttons and camera options in the Main Menu for the tyro who wants to exert some finer control.  

In image quality the camera shows its low-budget colours, specially once ISO 400 is reached.  But then, it “is great value for money” specially in undemanding situations where the main requirement is to get off a shot fast

The First Look

Sony has recently released a slew of cameras, among them the ‘bridge’ H200, alongwith more modest models in their Cyber-shot range.  ePHOTOzine has just published a first look.  The H200 has 20.1 megapixels and a long 26x optical zoom.  At ‘first look’, it is styled rather like a ‘Big Two’ DSLR.

If you’re looking for a new compact, you can choose between the TF1, WX200 and WX60.  The TF1 distinguishes itself by being waterproof up to ten metres and also claims to be dustproof and shockproof whereas the other two boast superior specs in zoom, ISO, and continuous shooting.  What they have in common is those shapeless shapes that are a hallmark of the Cyber-shot range!

The Lacy Leak

PhotoRumors has a ‘leak’ comprising all of three lines about the Olympus XZ-10 which they close with “No other details are available.”  But when you have pictures like these, ‘details’ are irrelevant.  Cameras were made of aluminium, plastic, polycarbonate . . . now they’re made of chiffon and lace!  Somehow I don’t think George Schaller would have chosen this baby . . . Zsa Zsa Gabor on the other hand . . .

Regardless of whether or not this camera can even actually take pictures, it will appeal to Manhattan socialites and Nashville vixens alike.

Women have long had their ‘clutch purse’; now, thanks to Olympus, they have the ‘clutch camera’ for formal nights.
