Adobe Camera Raw 2.4 Beta

Adobe Camera Raw 2.4 Beta

If you have bought one of the newer high-end digital cameras you may have been bummed to find out that Photoshop CS didn't support the RAW image format on those cameras.

Well, Adobe has just released a public beta of their Adobe Camera Raw plug-in that adds support for the RAW format of the following cameras to Photoshop CS:

* Canon EOS 20D
* Canon PowerShot S70
* Canon PowerShot G6
* Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II
* Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200
* Konica Minolta MAXXUM 7D
* Nikon D2X

Time for us to switch to using RAW format on our 20D and see what the results are like.

Alan from emailed to let us know about a digital camera buyer's guide he wrote.

"Digital cameras offer more value today than they ever have, and you can buy a camera today without having to worry about it being obsolete. Unfortunately, like the famous opening line from Dicken's classic novel, it's also a difficult time to find the right digital camera. Never have there been so wide a range of options and so wide a range of quality. Fortunately, with Pfucata as your personal guide, you'll easily be able to find your perfect digital camera and it begins with by realizing that there are two different types of cameras."

It seems like a useful guide for anyone looking for a new digital camera and you can read the full guide at

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II Review

canon eos 1ds mark 2 II info specs

It isn't available until next week but Michael Reichmann got a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II to review.

The Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II is an $8,000 professional digital camera, the kind of camera professional photographers use, not the kind of camera an average guy takes on vacation.

"Canon's One Series cameras are that company's flagship. These are the most rugged, full-featured and fastest shooting cameras that Canon knows how to design and build. They are also a work-in-progress. Each new version builds on the one previous."

Find out what you get for your 8 grand (or 12 grand when you buy a couple of good lenses for it) by reading Michael's review.

Canon Eos 20D Detailed Review

Canon Eos 20D Detailed Review

Dpreview has finally posted their full detailed review of the Canon Eos 20D digital camera.

The best description is.... detailed..... 29 pages of every detail you could possibly ever want.

It is a great review of the Canon Eos 20D if you are a real techhead: even their overall conclusion (below) of 5 paragraphs plus 23 positive bullets and 12 negative bullets.

Personally I love my 20D and it has proved invaluable when looking at and comparing houses recently, I have yet to learn 1% of all the manual options, gizmos, and tricks of the camera, but I love the picture quality, speed, and feel of the 20D.

Hasselblad H1D

hasselblad h1d medium format digital camera

Digital Media Thoughts found the product page for the Hasselblad H1D medium format digital camera that was first mentioned at Photokina last month.

The Hasselblad H1D is massive, reminding me of the ugly new Honda SUV, but its specs are very impressive:

The Hasselblad H1D has a large 22 megapixel 37mm by 49mm sensor, and instead of a CF card slot it has a built in 40GB hard drive: a necessity as each image can be 132MB in size (so even with the hard drive it can only store 850 images!).

The Hasselblad H1D has all the manual controls you would expect from a world class professional camera, and has a price to match: $22,000

Casio EXILIM EX-Z50 Red Star

casio exilim ex-z50 camera

Ok, I can see the red part of the name of the new camera from Casio but where is the star?

Apart from the pretty color this is a fairly standard digital camera: 5 megapixels, SD/MMC card slot, 320 x 240 video, USB connectivity, and 3x optical zoom.

The Casio EXILIM EX-Z50 Red Star will be available in November.

Useless trivia: Red Star is also the name of a nice restaurant in Portland Oregon.

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D

konica minolta maxxum 7d

We got a close look at the Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D over at the Digital Life show, we also got some hints as to what it will cost.

The Maxxum 7D is a 6.3 megapixel digital SLR camera that has built in anti-shake technology meaning you don't need image-stablized lenses to get clearer pictures.

I asked the Konica Minolta staff about pricing and they said they didn't know what price it would be, I changed tack and asked which canon camera they expected it to compete on price with: the Digital Rebel, the 20D, and the 1Ds Mark II, and they replied the 20D... so expect it to cost $1300-$1600.

It seems like a good camera but compared to my Canon 20D it thought it was too cluttered with dials, switches and knobs. If you are in NY you can see the 7D at the Digital Life show at the Javits Center until Sunday October 16th.

Pictures below (3502 x 2336 pixel photos available on request)

Epson L500V

epson l500v entry level 5 megapixel digital camera

It seems that most new digital cameras released today are at least 4 megapixels in resolution.

Epson's new entry level digital camera, the Epson L500V, offers that and more.

The Epson L500V features a 5 megapixel sensor, 640x480 video, 3x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom, 2.5" (comparitively large) LCD screen, 32mb internal memory, and SD/MMC memory card slot.

The Epson L500V is 3.6" x 2.5" x 1.2" and weighs 5.8oz.

No price or release date yet. My guess for the price of the Epson L500V would be around $400-$450.

Mamiya ZD Medium Format Camera

mamiya zd medium format camera

Mamiya has announced a medium format digital camera: The Mamaya ZD, as well as a camera back: The Mamiya ZD Back.

Medium format is the preferred solution for many professional photographers, having a wider field of view and larger more detailed pictures than regular 35mm film.

This concept translates equally well to digital cameras: The Mamiya ZD has a 36x48mm 22 Megapixel Full Frame RGB Square-structured CCD sensor compared to the 17x13mm sensor of the Olympus E300, or the 24x16mm sensor of the Nikon DX2 SLR Digital Cameras.

The Mamiya ZD is expected to cost over $10,000 so it is strictly for serious professional photographers.

The Olympus E300 is 5.8" x 3.4" x 2.5" and weighs 1.3lb without the lens.

Pricing has not yet been announced.

Canon Powershot G6 Details

canon powershot g6 information specs

Of all the cameras announced by Canon last week the one we would most likely buy is the Canon Powershot G6.

Naturally we would love an Eos 20D but at $1999 with the nice new image stablized lens it is difficult to justify the price unless we were using the camera daily.

The Canon Powershot G6 however, at $699 (likely to be closer to $650 if you shop around), can do about 80% of what the 20D can at about a third of the price.

Canon Powershot Pro1

canon powershot pro1 8mp 8 megapixel digital camera

The Canon Powershot Pro1 is the top end camera in Canon's Powershot range of consumer digital cameras.

The Pro1 is an 8 megapixel digital camera that works well at "point and click" but also has a lot more manual settings than most powershot cameras including focus bracketing, exposure bracketing, aperture and shutter priority, and a self-timer.

Trusted Reviews reviewed the Canon Powershot Pro1 and liked it but concluded that for a similar price you might be better off going for the Canon Eos Digital Rebel instead.

Review at Trusted Reviews

Canon Prosumer Digital Cameras

A lot of people think that Canon's prosumer (high-end consumer as opposed to full-time professional photographer) digital cameras are the best around.

Currently you have a choice between the Canon Eos 300D Digital Rebel (for around $900 with 18-55mm lens, $800 without lens) or the Canon Eos-10D (for around $1300). The main differences between them are that the 10D is built more solidly and has more manual configuration options and a slightly better user interface, the 300D however supports a newer type of lens - EF-S.

Now there are rumors of a 20D to be announced in September, current thinking is an 8 megapixel camera that supports EF-S lenses, to be available in November for $1400-$1600.

S500 Digital Elph Review

canon S500 digital elph

PC Mag has a good review of the new-ish Canon S500 Digital Elph 5 megapixel compact digital camera.

Bottom line:
The Canon PowerShot S500 Digital Elph is easy to slip in a pocket, like an ultracompact, but this 5-megapixel 3X optical zoom camera brings a lot more shooting power with it. Sharp pictures and excellent battery life make this camera a solid choice.
