Home | Cameras | Cameras Reviews Canon PowerShot SX60 HS Review: Big Zoom, Average Performance by Ershad Kaleebullah , 14 February 2015 For those who don't want to deal with the learning curve generally associated with DSLR cameras, a high-end compact makes the most sense. While these cameras cannot actually capture DSLR-quality images, they pack in a ton of features for a price that is more pocket-friendly.
Some of these cameras have SLR-like designs and amazing zooming capabilities. We have with us the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS, which is the world's first compact camera with a 65x optical zoom lens. Canon also adds the latest Digic 6 processor into the mix. Let's find out if the SX60 HS can wow us with its image quality.
Design and screen
Thanks to the really long optical zoom lens, the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS feels heavier and chunkier than most other super-zoom cameras in the market today, including its predecessor the SX50 HS. It has dimensions of 127.6×92.6×14.3mm ..

Sony RX100 III Review [year] 2

Sony RX100 III Review 2022

February 9, 2016 PTdrivers 8

Home | Cameras | Cameras Reviews Sony RX100 III Review: Improving the Best by Ershad Kaleebullah , 2 August 2014 Sony's RX100 was one of the most loved compact cameras and has universally been praised by critics; so much so that was the 'editor's pick' of many coveted tech publications in 2012. The company followed it up with the RX100 II with new features like a tiltable LCD and hotshoe. Building on this legacy even further now, Sony recently announced the RX100 III (more formally known as the DSC-RX100M3).
In this third iteration, Sony has tweaked the winning formula a bit by adding an electronic viewfinder (EVF) within the body, using a wider 24mm lens, shaving 30mm from the telephoto end, and removing the hotshoe. Let's see if the pros outweigh the cons, and if Sony can continue to reign supreme in this category.
Design
Sony doesn't veer much from the tried-and-tested design of the earlier RX100 models. The RX100 III continues to look classy with its..

Review: Sony DSC HX100V [year] 3

Review: Sony DSC HX100V 2022

July 12, 2018 PTdrivers 0

This camera from Sony is definitely for those who are looking to graduate from Point and Shoot cameras and are still not ready to take on the DSLR challenge! Sony DSC HX100V packs in most of the functionality of a DSLR, manual focus, LCD adjustment along with a viewfinder and other features like 30x Ultra Optical Zoom, as well High Definition, 3D shooting and Sweep Panorama. So all that it misses out on for it to be a DSLR is the lack of interchangeable lenses and of course the other big differentiator is the price.
Design and Built:
The Sony DSC HX100V with its matte black finish, looks and feels very strong and robust. Yet it is very light which makes it easy to carry around. The entire body is made up of plastic. The rubberised hand grip and the textured thumb rest make it very good for steadiness and strong grip, even if you want to shoot with just one hand.
The shutter button surrounded by the zoom toggle (a very common feature in Sony Digital cameras) along with the Focus and..

Sony SLT Alpha 33 - [year] 4

Sony SLT Alpha 33 – 2022

July 21, 2018 PTdrivers 0

The Sony SLT (Single Lens Translucent) Alpha 33 is a new DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) offered from Sony. This camera like the Sony Alpha 55 operates on the translucent mirror technology which enables very fast shooting. Its 7fps (frames per second) high speed continuous shooting mode is great and helps to capture scenes with ease. The Alpha 33 is quite small when compared to other DSLR's in the same price range. The question really is can the Sony Alpha 33 stand tall in a market dominated by Nikon and Canon?
Design & Built:
The Sony Alpha 33 feels strong and well built. The body is made of hard plastic,except for the rubberised hand grip and thumb rest. The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is also surrounded by a rubbery border.
On top right of the device we find the shutter button. It rests within the on/off toggle. It also houses the Finder/LCD Button and the D (Dynamic)-Range button. In the middle is the in-built flash which can be either manually brought up or pops up when req..

Review: Olympus SZ-30MR [year] 5

Review: Olympus SZ-30MR 2022

April 29, 2018 PTdrivers 0

Introduction:
Olympus's latest addition to their Super Zoom (SZ) series is the new SZ-30MR. It is a compact Point and Shoot camera packed with new and unique features like Multi-Recording (MR), Full 1080p High Definition still and video shooting, 3D, and 24x Super Zoom. Best of all, it is small enough to fit into your pockets and purses.
Design and Build:
The SZ-30MR is a well-built compact camera. It looks good but we're not sure how long that will last as the chrome build could wear off with time. The front facing portion is dark grey with a matte and chrome finish. The body is a little on the bulkier side since it incorporates a large 24x Optical Zoom lens which is also found in similar Point and Shoot cameras like the Sony DSC HV 100V with 30x Optical Zoom and Canon SX 30 with 35x Optical Zoom.
The built of the camera is quite sturdy. The hand-grip on the right enables you to keep a tight grip on the camera and it is very helpful when clicking pictures without a tripod. T..
