For the longest time, there were two main choices when it came to selecting a digital camera. You either purchased a DSLR, or you purchased a point and shoot. Needless to say, both of these options provided drastically different results, and there has been little in the middle to satisfy those who didn't want to jump into one camp or the other. And then, the Micro Four Thirds system was introduced. This solution packs DSLR-like image quality into a camera that's just barely larger than a typical point and shoot. Today, Panasonic has introduced two new cameras in their Micro Four Thirds lineup. The Lumix DMC-G2 is the G1's successor, and for the most part, it's almost the same camera. Very little...

If you can dish it, the Pentax Optio W90 digicam can probably take it. In fact, there's not much this rugged eleventh-gen Optio can't take, including water, shock, and extremely low temps.According to Pentax, you can submerge the W90 in up to 20 feet of water, making it a suitable option for snorkeling and pool parties alike. It's also shockproof up to 4 feet, and able to withstand sub-freezing temps in case you find yourself chasing the abominable snowman, banished to Siberia, or living in Michigan.Outside of its rugged design, the Optio W90 also boasts a 12.1 megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio, Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card connectivity, the ability to capture 720p...

You knew that Samsung, Sony, FujiFilm, Canon and Nikon made cameras, but did you know that the same company that makes kitchen appliances and medical systems does as well? General Imaging, which is the exclusive licensee of GE digital cameras, has just debuted a slew of new compact cameras at the PMA 2010 camera expo in California, and all of them fall within the bargain realm. There's a pretty wide variety of options as well, and while GE doesn't have the marketing power in the camera department like some of the mainstays do, these prices might just grab some eyes. Here's a look at the 2010 GE camera lineup below.GE Active Series - G5WP The waterproof G5WP features a sturdy metal design and... Read more...
Need more camera news? PMA has it. Samsung has remained a steady and solid competitor in the point and shoot market, and while they have thus far stayed an arm's length away from the highly competitive DSLR market, some of these new cameras could very well replace a low-end DSLR for someone who doesn't need the option of swapping out lenses. The new HMX-U20 ($250) and the HMX-U15 ($230) both offer lots of new features, including Full HD video, built-in USB connectivity and an HDMI port. The U20 offers a 3x optical zoom, and both are looking to rival the Flip UltraHD and all of those other "pocket camcorders" that have made such an impact in a YouTube-obsessed world.The TL500 is a more standard...

The newest point and shoot from the company is not only a real looker, but one that could be a promising performer. The CX3 is the latest unit in the growing CX lineup, and while it's small in stature, it has a few features that are currently unheard of in a camera this small. Designed to fit into just about any pocket yet provide pro-level characteristics, the CX3 has a new 10MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor that should deliver a new level of detail to low-light photography. Generally, low-light kills point and shoot cameras. They simply can't handle the... Read more...
