    Review of Olympus E-5

    The Olympus brand of cameras continues to surprise. With the Olympus E-5, the players at Olympus are showing they are ready to take on the kings of the photo industry, such as Canon and Nikon. Truth be told, the E-5 is not so much of an upgrade as it is a tribute to its predecessor, the E-3. It certainly advances the brand, as it offers a few details which are bigger and better than the E-3.

Canon EOS-1D X Review

canon-eos-1d-c-jjc

Canon seems to be going against popular thought with its EOS-1D X full frame DSLR. Instead of building on the sensor power of the predecessor Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III and its 21 megapixels, Canon instead goes to a lower megapixel sensor of 18 mp for the EOS 1D-X. The company’s reason behind this is two-fold: the handling and menus are much more intuitive; the fps (frames per second) is a bold and impressive 12 fps.

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS Review

    There is no denying that the Pentax K-30 has a variety of features that are similar to pricier DSLR cameras. The Digital SLR camera uses a glass pentaprism viewfinder and it can shoot photos up to six frames per second. In addition, the body is weather sealed. Photographers who prefer the visual finder to Live View should certainly consider the K-30 even though it does not provide a tilting rear LCD.
