Nikon Coolpix S550 Digital Camera

When Nikon revealed its Fall 2007 lineup, something was missing: a 10-megapixel camera. The S-Series models jumped from 8 (S510) to 12 megapixel (S700). This oversight has now been addressed with not one but two new 10-megapixel cameras, the S550 and the S600. They are different enough that we'll dedicate a separate page to each.

The S550 is a small and handy little camera that will appeal to those who like to get close. That's because it, unlike any other S-Series Coolpix, has a 5X optical zoom. Depending on the kinds of pictures you like to take, that can make a huge difference. Following the trend of offering cameras in different colors, the S550 comes in plum, cool blue and graphite black. And with a list price of just US$229, it's a bargain.

Nikon S550 - Features
• Improved Face-priority AF
• In-Camera Red-Eye Fix
• Nikon D-Lighting
• Active Zoom allows smoother zooming for close-ups
• Macro shooting from as close as 10 cm (4 in.)
• Three movie modes with sound, plus time-lapse movie mode

Olympus E-330 Digital Camera Olympus BLW-1 Battery

On January 26th 2006 over a year since the introduction of the E-300 Olympus revealed the 7.5 million pixel 'live view' successor, the E-330. The E-330's biggest differentiator to any other digital SLR is its capability to deliver a live view on the LCD monitor (in the same manner as a prosumer / consumer all-in-one digital camera). For those new to digital SLR's this is difficult to achieve because of the mirror / shutter mechanism, the mirror is in the light path in view mode to provide an image to the viewfinder, this means that no image can be projected onto the main sensor. Additionally most large D-SLR sensor don't have video out capability. Other changes over the E-300 include a flip-out LCD screen and a range of feature improvements inherited from the E-500.

    Np-140 Battery
    Storage and Battery. The 1,150 mAh lithium-ion battery fujifilm np-140 is a bit larger than the small lithium-ions in most digicams but there's plenty of room for it in the sizeable grip. A large yellow battery release makes it easy to pop the Fujifilm S100FS's battery np-140 in and out of the socket, too; quite a relief from the tiny releases in ultracompacts. An AC adapter is also available.

    Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V3 and Sony Np-fr1

    The Cyber-shot DSC-V3 is powered by a InfoLithium battery type NP-FR1. The NP-FR1 (3.6 volts, 4.4W) in the camera via the supplied standard AC power. The advantage of the InfoLithium battery is the fact that every minute this precise information about the remaining energy of the battery. This is graphically displayed on the monitor what ultimate very user friendly. An additional advantage is that the InfoLithium battery has been the characteristic energy to maintain long, so virtually no discharges. There is nothing annoying than an advanced camera in hand with the expectation that one time recording to be made and to note that the previous week charged battery is empty again, self-discharging.

    Sony DSC-V3 High Points
    • 7.41-megapixel CCD delivering image resolutions as high as 7.078 megapixels (3,072 x 2,304) from the "7.2 effective" megapixel sensor.

    • Full Auto, Program AE, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, and Manual exposure modes, plus seven preset Scene modes.
    • Shutter speeds from 1/1,000 to 30 seconds in Manual and Shutter Priority modes, 1 to 1/2000 in Program Auto, 8 to 1/2000 in Aperture Priority, and 1/8 to 1/2000 in Full Auto mode.
    • Adjustable ISO with sensitivity equivalents of Auto, 100, 200, 400, and 800.
    • White Balance setting with six presets and a manual setting.
    • Multi-Pattern, Center-Weighted, and Spot metering options.
    • Contrast, Sharpness, and Saturation adjustments.

    • Image storage on Sony Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, and Compact Flash Type I.
    • DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) and PictBridge compatibility.
    • Power from Sony NP-FR1 lithium-ion battery pack or AC adapter (included).
    • AV Cable with NTSC and PAL format options
    • USB cable and software CD for quick connection to a computer.


    The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V3 is powered by an NP-FR1 InfoLITHIUM battery pack (3.6 volts, 4.4 watt-hours) and comes with an AC adapter which doubles as an in-camera battery charger. InfoLITHIUM battery packs contain a chip that exchanges information with the camera, allowing the camera to report approximately how many minutes of battery life are left at the current drain level. This information is displayed on the LCD monitor and the electronic viewfinder with a small battery graphic. The AC adapter plugs into a small socket on the camera's back panel. It can run the camera without a battery inserted, or charge the battery when the camera isn't in use.

    The Li-Ion battery packs used in Sony cameras prevent me from making my usual direct power measurements, but the good news is that the InfoLITHIUM system reports projected camera runtime while the battery is being used in the camera. Despite the excellent feedback provided by the InfoLITHIUM system, I still recommend you purchase and pack along a second battery, though. (Another advantage of the Li-Ion technology used in the InfoLITHIUM batteries is that they don't "self-discharge" like conventional NiMH rechargeable cells do, and so can hold their charge for months on the shelf or in your camera bag.)

    The Sony DSC T70 is an 8 megapixel, pocket sized digital camera. One of the main attractions of the camera is likely to be the fact it has a touch screen. This allows you to change camera settings by following a series of on screen commands instead of using buttons and dials. The DSC T70 includes the increasingly popular face detection technology and image stabilisation.

    Nikon Coolpix S6 Digital Camera 6.0 megapixel & EN-EL8 battery

    De Nikon S6 digitale camera is modern en attractief. Het fraaie design ging niet ten koste van de nieuwste technologie, de nieuwe Nikon Coolpix S6 onderscheidt zich met een extra hoge audiokwaliteit, automatische beeldverbe-tering, een korte opstarttijd en nieuwe 
    bedieningsorganen voor een makkelijke navigatie en verder vereenvoudigd gebruik. Dit alles, en meer, is verpakt in een body van slechts 140 gram, met op het slankste gedeelte een dikte van slechts 18 mm. 

    Product Specifications
    6.0 Megapixels with 3x Optical Zoom-Nikkor ED Glass Lens
    Large, bright 3.0 inch LCD with 170 degree angle of view
    Built-in WiFi for wireless transfer and printing
    All-Metal with sleek, stylish wave design
    Rotary multi-selector button
    One-Touch portrait button automatically activates In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and Face-Priority AF
    Pictmotion creates in-camera slide shows with music
    Dimensions: 100.5 x 60 x 21mm (W x H x D)
    Weight: 140g (without battery and memory card)

    Supplied with
    Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL8 , COOL-STATION MV-15, Audio Video Cable EG-E5000, AC Adapter EH-64, Strap AN-

    CP14, PictureProject CD-ROM, Dock Insert PV-11.

    The Nikon S6 comes with an EN-EL8 rechargeable lithium-ion battery that allows the camera to snap about 200 shots per charge. With this short battery life, the S6 will be spending a lot of time in its CoolStation camera dock. Because of this, users may forget that the S6 is "wireless." The camera comes with lots of wires, including two that make up the power adaptor for the camera dock. In short, the battery life of this Coolpix stinks.

    Replacement Battery Information
    En-el8 replacement battery could be found in UK, US and CA, every one can get one for spare pay a little money

    Chemistry: Li-ion
    Voltage: 3.7V
