Wow, that's a lot of Lumixes! If there's one thing to be said for Panasonic's digital imaging division, it definitely gives the consumer quite a large variety of models to choose from. And some, like the TZ4 and TZ5, offer pretty compelling features, such as a relatively monstrous 10x optical zoo...

Just in case you thought that Sony was, you know, making up those snazzy new alpha DSLRs with articulating, live-view LCDs, we're here with a plethora of hands-on shots to prove that they're the real deal. Since you already know the specs by now -- 10.2 megapixel (a300) or 14.2 megapixel (a350) se...

Across the board, the FE-310, FE-340 and FE-350 get treated to an 8-megapixel sensor and LCDs ranging from 2.5 - 3-inches. The FE-350 trades off th...

Fujifilm may have laid claim to "smallest 12x zoom," but Olympus' SP-570 UZ blows by that with a 20x optical zoom. In case you didn't know, the "UZ" stands for "ultra zoom." Not a bad piece of glass; f/2.8 - f/4.5 with dual image stabilization so you can actually use the 20x end of the lens. The 10...

Nikon has a raft of new Coolpix digicams at PMA to cover the range of shutterbugs, from "give me more options" to "just a shutter, please." For those who want some more options but just can't commit to a DSLR yet, there's the P60. You'll get to play around with 8.1-megapixels, 15 (!) scene modes,...

Lugging around a DSLR just isn't for everyone, and Canon's got the heart of the market covered with their Powershot digicams. The ELPH series has always focused on compact and stylish design, and the new 8-megapixel SD1100 IS is no exception. Small enough that you won't set off anyone's "photograph...

It seems like big boys Nikon and Canon DSLRs have been slugging it out since, well, before the "D" was even a thought. This year, it's a fight over the entry-level end of the DSLR market with the Nikon's D60 facing off against Canon's EOS Rebel XSi. On paper at least, Nikon's offering is little cha...

We got our hands on what's probably one of the most anticipated cameras of the show, the Canon EOS Rebel XSi DSLR. The predecessor XTi model was crazy successful, so smart money says that the step up to a 3-inch live view LCD, 12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, 9-point AF and Canon's DIGIC III processing...

Lookee here, the K20D, Pentax's flagship entry in the DSLR race and replacement for the K10D. Good looking stuff here, and right off the bat you can see it's a step above the K200D: a proper command dial in place of buttons on the back of that dust-proof (not just resistant) and weather-resistant b...

Pretty much all the major camera manufacturers had their wares on display tonight at Digital Focus, the pregame event to PMA. We got our hands on Pentax's prosumer DSLR, the K200D. Pentax definitely makes a competitive case for itself here -- lots of buyers just getting into a DSLR don't have "inve...
