Sony H9 reviewed at dpreview

Reviews of Interest (RoI)

  • The review of the Sony H9 has been posted at dpreview! The review was conducted by Simon Joinson... The H9 was a highly anticipated review, as this was the first Sony camera with a 15x (31-465mm eq lens). It is using a tiny 8mp 1/2.5" sensor... As always, I won't spoil the review findings. You have to read it to learn about the roses in the H9 garden :-)
  • Forum discussion here, and here
  • Meanwhile, CameraLabs reviews the Olympus E410. Apparently their camera did not have the metering/underexposure issue a couple of the major sites have written about (dpreview, dcresource)
  • dcresource reviews the Sony W80, and posts new galleries for the Olympus E510, Sony H9 (first 15x H-series Sony) and T100 (first 5x T-series Sony)

    New News
  • Samsung dreams big!. According to a DigiTimes.com story referenced by IR, Samsung wants to jump in the global top 3 of digital camera manufacturers. Certainly an ambititious ...ambition. They expect to ship 13 million digital cameras in 2007. This would have gotten them the global #3 spot in both 2006 and 2005, according to market research firm IDC... Also pointing in that direction is Samsung's jump to #4 in the USA market for the first quarter (Q1) of 2007). But let's not forget that the biggest chunk of digital cameras sold are in Q4 (fourth quarter), which coincides with various secular and religious celebrations.
