Feb 29: Digital Cameras Comparisons

PC Mag has just published an article online called Digital Photography For Everyone in which they compare and review 21 Digital Cameras. The Digital Camera Comparisons are pretty comprehensive and fall into three categories:

1. Shirt Pocket Shooters - The editors choice in this category was Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T1 with a 4 star rating. They describe it saying 'The DSC-T1 is for buyers who want the sexiest, highest-resolution subcompact camera. And it's refreshingly simple to use.' I list the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T1 here.

2. Mid Range Models - the Editors choice in this category is the Olympus C-5060 Wide Zoom. It also got a 4 star rating and was described with the words 'it just about has it all: good ergonomics, solid performance, excellent image quality, and all the professional features you could want.' I examine the Olympus C-5060 wide zoom here.

3. Professional Models - the Editors choice in this category is the Olympus E1. They give it a 5 star rating and compliment it by saying 'The Olympus E-1 is the most expensive camera in our roundup, but it's also the most capable, the best built, and the most ahead of its time.' They also hint that a consumer class variant of the E1 is likely to be released shortly. I examine the Olympus E-1 here.
