Nikon Coolpix P610

TechSmart
  • Excerpt: With a number of manufacturers bringing out bridge cameras with a reach of 50x or more, the day of the superzoom is truly here. This is a boon for South Africans who spend a lot of time in the bush.
  • Pros: 60x zoom, great Auto mode, stabilisation works, Wi-Fi, USB charging
  • Cons: Battery life a bit iffy, focusing can be a problem

Canon EOS 5Ds

TechSmart
  • Excerpt: For a long time in photography circles, there were two rival camps – those who swore by the versatility of the DSLR and image purists who lay their allegiance to the superior quality delivered by medium format cameras. The Canon EOS 5Ds could well be considered the bridge between the two.
  • Pros: Superb image quality, Excellent build, Familiar controls and layout
  • Cons: Produces large files, Only 5 frames per second, Limited ISO range

Canon EOS 700D

TechSmart
  • Conclusion: In a nutshell though, it is hard not to like the 700D for what it is – a very capable and easy to use camera, that still feels streets ahead of many of the compacts on offer. RRP: R8 000 body only or R9 500 with standard EF-S 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens.
  • Pros: Accessible user interface, Light and portable, Great image quality, Easy to use, Useful vari-angle screen, High ISO range
  • Cons: Not up to the rigors of rough outdoor use, Not too much of a difference between it and the 650D

Olympus SP-800UZ

TechSmart
  • Excerpt: Looking at the petite14 megapixel Olympus’ SP-800UZ it’s difficult to believe that a 30x optical zoom is hiding in that tiny body. 30x is a massive amount of zoom in anyone’s language (equivalent to 28–840 mm in old 35 mm terms) and up until Canon recently released PowerShot SX30 with a 35x monster...
  • Pros: Excellent zoom, very decent macro mode, 720p video recording, interesting scenes and onboard beauty editing..
  • Cons: Video recording only with fixed zoom, no manual mode, 3 piece charger a hassle, screen with too little pixels.

Quick Review: Canon EOS 1200D

TechSmart
  • Excerpt: While smartphone photography might have hit the compact camera market for a six, it also enticed many to take photography that one step further into the realm of DSLRs. Canon’s EOS 1200D is a no-frills entry-level camera, retailing for R6 000 with its 18-55mm lens.
  • Pros: Good price; solid image quality; Companion App is helpful
  • Cons: No in-menu explanation; ISO not to be used past 1600; Low resolution on LCD display
