Interesting cameras are the ultrazoom compact cameras like the Panasonic Lumix ZS20 or TZ30, the Sony HX20V (I have a review of this camera), the Pentax Optio VS20 or the Leica V-Lux 40.
The Fujifilm FinePix F800EXR is very near to the F770EXR launched last year but instead of getting a GPS sensor, it gets a Wi-Fi connexion that will open its content to the world. But you won’t lose the possibility to geotag your images : the FinePix F800EXR can connect to your iPhone or Android smartphone [...]
The Leica V-LUX 40 is 2012′s version of Leica compact camera based on Panasonic Lumix flasgship : the ZS20/TZ30. Just like the camera produced by Panasonic, the Leica V-LUX 40 has a highly versatile 20x zoom lens which design has been approved by Leica’s engineers. Its 24-480mm equivalent makes it a perfect travel camera. As [...]

Panasonic announces today the new ZS / TZ superzoom compact camera : the ZS20 / FT30. It is called ZS20 in America and TZ30 in Europe. IOt features a 20x zoom lens (like the Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR) and I love the idea to have a camera that fits in your pocket that can shoot at [...]
I just received the specs of this interesting Pentax compact camera. It is not interesting because of its 16 megapixels sensor (a CCD unfortunately… no BSI CMOS sensor in Pentax digital camera range….), nor because it has a 3″ / 460 000 dots rear screen, nor 720P movie recording, some pretty basic specs. No, it [...]
