Pentax Optio V20

Posted by Admin-Digicam | Sunday, December 21, 2008

Pentax's Optio V20 digital camera sports the useful combination of an eight megapixel imager, 5x optical zoom lens and three inch LCD display in a relatively compact body that's just 0.9" / 23mm thick. The Pentax V20's 1/2.35" CCD image sensor is capable of burst shooting at 1.4 frames per second, and is also used to offer contrast detection-type autofocusing.

Pentax V20 Features

The Optio V20's 5x zoom lens provides for focal lengths equivalent to 36 - 180mm on a 35mm camera - not hugely generous at wide angle, but a fairly useful telephoto given the camera's size. Maximum aperture ranges from f/3.5 at wide angle to f/5.6 at telephoto, which while perhaps a little on the dim side is perfectly understandable given the camera's dimensions and pricing. Sadly there's no optical image stabilization to help offset this, with the Pentax V20 instead offering only what Pentax refers to as "Digital Shake Reduction". Essentially this raises sensitivity to as high as ISO 6400 equivalent, in an attempt to prevent shake at the expense of image noise and subject detail.

The LCD display is the sole method of framing or reviewing images, given that the Pentax Optio V20 has no provision for an optical viewfinder. At a total of 230,000 dots, the Optio V20's 3.0" display offers about the norm in terms of resolution. Images are stored in a reasonably generous 51.1MB of built-in memory, as well as on Secure Digital flash cards (including the newer high-speed, high-capacity SDHC types).

Power for the Optio V20 comes from a D-LI78 Lithium Ion rechargeable battery, which Pentax rates as good for around 200 shots on a charge. Alternatively, you can expect around 3.5 hours of continuous playback time, 70 minutes of movie recording or 300 minutes of audio recording on a single charge of the Pentax V20's battery.

The Pentax Optio V20 includes a range of ease-of-use features, such as a catch-all Auto scene mode which automatically selects between the Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, Normal, Flower and Sports scene modes as appropriate, an auto-macro function which allows focusing to 4" / 10cm in normal AF mode if required, and face recognition technology which is linked to both the autofocus and autoexposure systems to ensure pleasing portraits. The Pentax V20's Blink Detection function warns if your subjects closed their eyes, and a Smile Capture function can automatically trigger the shutter when your subject smiles.

Canon PowerShot A590 IS

Posted by Admin-Digicam | Sunday, December 21, 2008

Are you looking for cheap canon digital camera?
Maybe you can considered as alternatif.
Here's the review from

Boasting improved Face Detection and Motion Detection technology, the Canon PowerShot A590 IS aims to outperform in the area of portraiture, capturing better exposed and better focused faces, whether they're in motion or standing still.

The PowerShot A590 IS is small and compact, and similar in style and overall design to other members of the PowerShot "A" series, with a darker, graphite body that stands out among the silver digital camera crowd. Offering 4x optical zoom, a bright 2.5-inch LCD monitor and an 8.0-megapixel CCD, the A590 IS is a good deal at its MSRP of $179.99.

The 4x optical zoom lens offers slightly more zoom than the average point-and-shoot digital camera, covering a range equivalent to 35-140mm on a 35mm camera. In addition to the 4x optical zoom, the PowerShot A590 IS features another 4x of digital zoom, which does a decent job of maintaining image quality despite the digital enlargement. (We still remind readers that digital zoom compromises quality and resolution by digitally "stretching" the image.)

With a full range of exposure modes from Easy to a full Manual mode (this last being unusual in inexpensive digital cameras), the PowerShot A590 IS is a good fit for just about any experience level, and its offering of preset Scene modes help with a wide range of common-yet-tricky exposure situations.

More experienced users will appreciate the camera's adjustable white balance, ISO, color, contrast, sharpness and saturation adjustments. The PowerShot A590 IS's combination of small, portable size and numerous capabilities should appeal to a wide range of consumers, from novices to more advanced users.

Canon A590 IS Basic Features

  • 8.0-megapixel CCD (effective) delivers image resolutions as high as 3,264 x 2,448
  • 4x optical zoom lens, equivalent to 35-140mm
  • As much as 4x digital zoom
  • Nine-point AF area, plus manual focus and advanced Face Detection
  • Real-image optical viewfinder
  • 2.5-inch color LCD monitor
  • Easy, Auto, Program AE, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and Manual main exposure modes

20 Tips Street Photography Hunting

Posted by Admin-Digicam | Sunday, December 21, 2008

I just blogwalking, and found nice posting from darren rowse, digital photography school. Here's tips:

  1. Less is More - don’t take too much equipment and travel light. It’ll make you less obtrusive and you will be able to move around for the best shot quickly.

  2. Off the Beaten Track - don’t just go to all the touristy shots - try to get ‘behind the scenes’ and ‘real life’ scenes.
  3. Stolen Moments - anticipate moments between people before they happen.
  4. True Colours - black and white is often where it’s at with street photography but at times colourful situations arise and can really make a shot - be on the look out for these.
  5. In the Background - what’s goign on behind your subject can actually ‘make’ the shot. Billboards, signs, graffiti and other visual elements can really make a statement in a shot.

  6. Dare to Go Diagonal - don’t just hold your camera horizontally - experiment with angles. Street photography is a less formal medium - make the most of it.
  7. Opposites Attract - shots which challenge the ‘norm’ in terms of composition and story/subject matter can be powerful. Look out for ’surprising’ subject matter and composition.
  8. What a Performance - street performers, parades and other street entertainment can be great subject matter on the street.
  9. Off the Streets - other places where people gather in number can lead to great shots in this genre - zoos, fairs, shows, parks, sporting events etc all can be worth trying.
  10. New Angle - find ways to get up high or down low - these new perspectives on subjects that are familiar can lead to eye catching shots.
  11. Practice makes Perfect - over time and with practice your photography will improve. You’ll not only get better at technique but also spotting the things to focus upon on the street.
  12. Fortune Favors the Brave - sometimes the best thing you can do is to get close to your subject - this can be a little confronting but will produce powerful images
  13. Fun in the Sun - often we try to avoid shooting into the sun and the shadows that direct sunlight can produce - in street photography breaking these ‘rules’ can lead to great shots.
  14. Ready to Pounce - have your camera out and ready to shoot at all times. Things can move quickly on the street so if you’re not ready you’ll miss lots of opportunities.
  15. Revise the Revisit - street photography is not all about spontaneity - if you see a scene with potential don’t be afraid to keep coming back to it until you get the shot.
  16. Frozen Motion - the street is a place of movement - to capture it and still get sharp shots make sure your shutter speed is fast enough. 1/125 or more with an ISO of 400 is what this article recommended as a base. I also think it can be fun to experiment with slower shutter speeds on the street - capture the movement as blur.
  17. Street Wallpaper - blend in with the scene - shoot unobtrusively and unnoticed.
  18. Life Through a Lens - ‘exaggerating perspective will help set your subject in context and provide a more forgiving depth of field’ - use a wide angle lens (or even a fisheye).
  19. Expect the Expected - people can be suspicious of street photographers so shoot in places where people expect to see people doing photography. Smile, be polite and be willing to delete images if people protest.
  20. Location, Location, Location - really this is what it is all about. Choose places where people interact with one another and times when they are present

Canon Powershot G10 Continues G Series

Posted by Admin-Digicam | Saturday, December 13, 2008

The Canon 'G' series is the most consistently targeted photographer family of compact cameras on the market. This is the 8th iteration of that dynasty includes a 14.7MP sensor and a 28-140mm zoom, offering serious flexibility. The family faces stiffer competition than ever of course - from the budget DSLRs now under the price and a number of compelling RAW shooting compact peers who fancy a tilt at its' king of support 'crown. Is it difficult G10 built robust enough to weather such a grueling environment?

The G10 is the third incarnation of Canon’s flagship ‘prosumer’ compact since the G series was reinvented with the G7 in 2006. Announced two years after the G6, the G7 caused quite a buzz; partly because everyone had presumed the budget SLR had killed off this sector of the market, partly because it lacked several of what had become G series trademarks (fast lens, tilting screen, raw mode, secondary LCD panel), and it would be fair to say the response was ‘mixed’. The G9 went some way towards placating the critics, reintroducing raw mode and improving handling, but it still suffered from the fundamental problem that the sensor inside couldn’t deliver on what the fantastic camera promised on the outside.

When we reviewed the G9 last year, we praised it for the styling, handling and build and for its excellent output at low ISO settings. The G10 builds on this by adding handling and control refinements, improving the LCD resolution, and, most importantly, adding a wider lens starting at 28mm (equiv.). It also retains the rangefinder styling and solid build quality, and reduces the amount of silver accents on the camera. All the external controls have been carried over, and a new one has been added (a very useful exposure compensation dial).

The things we criticized the G9 for (the unneeded increase in resolution, and the slow-ish lens) have not been addressed. Instead Canon has increased the resolution for the sensor even more, to 14.7 megapixels. The updated lens, though wider at the wide end, is also shorter at the long end, and has less zoom range overall. The speed of the lens is again almost the same F2.8-4.5, though the wider lens does retain the G9’s relatively compact dimensions. The price remains at around $500.

Note that some sections of this review (feature descriptions where nothing has changed) are reproduced.

Headline features

  • 14.7 Megapixel CCD sensor
  • 5x wide-angle (28mm) optical zoom lens with optical Image Stabilizer
  • RAW image recording plus support for Canon Digital Photo Professional
  • DIGIC 4 for clear, sharp images, high-speed AF (including Servo AF) and fast response times
  • Targets all the main causes of blur with High ISO Auto, optical
    Image Stabilizer, Motion Detection Technology and Auto ISO shift
  • Improved Face Detection AF/AE/FE/WB plus Face Select & Track and FaceSelf-Timer
  • 3.0” PureColor LCD II (461k dots resolution) with wide viewing angle and optical viewfinder
  • i-Contrast boosts brightness and retains detail in dark areas
  • Dedicated Exposure Compensation and ISO dials
  • 26 shooting modes with manual control and custom settings
  • Accessories include tele-converter, Speedlights flashes and waterproof case
  • Smooth, 30fps VGA movies

The G10 continues the G series tradition of incremental upgrades. Here are the key changes:

  • Higher resolution (14.7MP vs 12MP)
  • New wider coverage Lens (starts at 28mm)
  • Redesigned front grip with textured cover
  • Improved Face Detection technology
  • DIGIC 4 for improved image processing
  • New higher capacity battery (1050 mAh up from 720mAh)
  • Improved LCD screen resolution (461K vs 230K)
  • Exposure compensation dial
  • New flat and tilted buttons

Tips On Protecting Digital Camera

Posted by Admin-Digicam | Friday, December 05, 2008

Don't you wanna missing some great event or shots? Even when it's raining or snowing, extremely hot or cold? keeping digital camera when it's raining is a way keep digital camera safe, but you will be missing some great shots. So how can i still get some shots when its extremely weather?

Protecting digital camera from extremely weather is the important thing to keep your digital camera works. You spend your money for digital camera, so you do not want your camera may be damaged.

Here's some tips protecting camera from extremely weather (source : digital

Get a good camera bag

One thing you can do to protect your camera while traveling or hiking or exposure to the elements is to invest in a good, high-quality camera bag. There are plenty of them out there and many of them are back stable. Bogen and Lowepro are two makers of quality bags.

Not only will a good bag protects your equipment from the weather, but they will also stipulate that all equipment used everywhere safe and secure.

Use a UV filter

It is also a good idea to use a filter, such as a UV (ultraviolet) and skylight filter to protect your lens. They are much cheaper than in the place of a lens every day of the week.

Rain tips for your camera

There are a few things you can do for your camera if you happen to be stuck outside the company, and a really important factor.

If the weather changes to rain, you can set your camera under your coat, shirt, hat, anything that will shield. If you are interested in obtaining a number of photographs of the weather, you can set your camera in a plastic bag and make a hole big enough for the lens. Just use a rubber band to the bag on the lens.

How to beat the heat

Avoid leaving your camera in the extreme heat if you are outside. Construction of a light towel over it will help shade from the sun. Do not use dark colors because they will simply absorb the heat.

If the cold outside

When its cold outside, one thing you can do for your camera is try to keep it as warm as possible. Again, to put under your jacket works well using your body heat. Keep your camera warm as possible, hopefully to prevent condensation.

If condensation occurs, open the battery and memory compartments, empty and store the compartments open until they dry out. Do not take your camera back outside if there is condensation in / on. It is possible to freeze.


Panasonic Lumix DMC - FZ28

Posted by Admin-Digicam | Friday, December 05, 2008

Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FZ28 is a 10.1 Megapixel super-zoom camera with DSLR-styling and an 18x optically-stabilised zoom range. Announced in July 2008, it comes one year after the Lumix FZ18. The new model is strongly based on its predecessor, but features higher resolution, a larger screen, HD movie recording and quicker burst mode, along with a number of tweaks to the controls, viewfinder, menus and auto systems.

The optical range may appear to be the same 18x, but the lens specification on the new FZ28 is slightly different. The equivalent focal length has slightly widened from 28-504mm to 27-486mm. In practice this difference is barely noticeable, but the important thing is the enormous compositional flexibility such a range delivers, taking you from decent wide angle to super-telephoto coverage. It really will cover you for almost any situation.

The resolution has received an inevitable boost, this time from 8.1 to 10.1 Megapixels, and the sensor itself is fractionally larger than before. Behind the scenes is Panasonic’s latest Venus IV image processor, and we’re pleased to report the FZ28 still has the ability to save images in the RAW format – a key advantage over rivals like Canon’s PowerShot SX10 IS.

Panasonic’s enlarged the screen from 2.5in / 207k to a 2.7in / 230k model that’s also brighter and easier to view in direct sunlight. Strangely it’s reduced the size of the electronic viewfinder, but it is at least more detailed than before.

The earlier FZ18 sported widescreen movies in standard definition which Panasonic has now upgraded to include HD versions in the 720p format. The FZ28 is also equipped with a Component output for use with an optional cable to deliver HD slideshows to HDTVs.

Then there’s a raft of enhancements seen throughout the Lumix 2008 range including the latest and cleverest Intelligent Auto mode, improved face detection, and a burst preset which shoots lower resolution frames at high speed – in the FZ28’s case at up to 13fps. The FZ28 additionally sports an AF tracking option to keep subjects in motion sharp, and a number of changes to its controls and menu options we’ll detail in our Design and Features pages. All this is packed into a body that remains smaller and lighter than most of the competition, and priced keenly too.

Ultimately these enhancements may only represent an evolutionary upgrade over its predecessor, but given the FZ18 was our favourite super-zoom of 2007, any improvements can only make a great model even better. But its rivals haven’t stood still. Most notably Canon has made more significant changes to its 2007 super-zoom, switching the 12x range of the earlier PowerShot S5 IS to a massive 20x on the new PowerShot SX10 IS.

Canon PowerShot SD1100 Overview

The Canon SD1100 IS Digital ELPH includes an eight megapixel 1/2.5" CCD imager and a Canon-branded 3x optical zoom lens with image stabilization, which covers a fairly standard range of 38-114mm equivalent -- a moderate wide angle to a moderate telephoto.

Exposure is fully automatic, but the user can tweak it with 2.0EV of exposure compensation and four metering modes to handle difficult lighting, including a mode which ties metering to the camera's face detection system.

Thirteen scene modes keep the camera approachable for beginners. A long-exposure mode in the Canon SD1100 IS ELPH lets you set exposure times as long as 15 seconds manually, and a 2.5" LCD display plus an real-image optical zoom viewfinder -- rather rare on digicams these days.

The Canon SD1100 IS sports a fairly wide ISO sensitivity range, from 80 to 1600. The PowerShot SD1100 IS is PictBridge compliant, and so is able to print to any printer that supports PictBridge directly, without the need for a computer in the middle. Images are stored on SD/SDHC/MMC memory cards with a not-so-generous 32MB card in the product bundle, and power comes from a proprietary NB-4L lithium-ion rechargeable battery.
Five body colors are available: silver, gold, brown, blue and pink.
