packs a lot of power into a small package, with its 9-megapixel CCD, 4x optical zoom, full manual controls and
RAW capabilities. But is the compact with SLR dreams any good? DigitalCameraInfo took a look at it, and found it to be
a "very solid compact camera" with "unusually high resolution, good color and image quality." On
the downside, some of those SLR-style features didn't quite work out very well. The reviewer found the E900's manual
focus to be "atrocious," and also felt the camera's RAW converter was "extremely limited."
Nevertheless, the review recommends the camera as a good choice for compact-camera users who want to get some
experience with manual controls and may not want to spring for an SLR.
