Spotlight reviews: Of Small Sensors and Megapixels
Photography Blog has posted their trademark six-part review of the Fuji F60fd. While no F31fd, the F60fd is the "keeper of the flame". But how close to the tiny-pixel flame did it get and why are the conclusions conflicting and conflicted?
Not showing as much restraint as they did with the LX3, Panasonic invited 15 million pixels to party in the FX-150. DP Interface has posted their review. With more megapixels than ants in an ant-farm, how did the FX150 perform? And what can you get out of the RAW mode?
The Gear blog of the PDN network (I should say "district") has posted an experiential review of the Canon 50D. No spoilers, but ISO talk features prominently so be sure to check it out. And speaking of the Canon 50D, fellow photographer-blogger Jeff Revell of Photo Walk Pro has announced his pre-release of his brand new book, "Canon 50d: From Snapshots to Great Shots" (Amazon, pre-order).

Galleries of the popular Canon SX10is are up at DC Resource, which recently celebrated its 11th birthday! Happy birthday DC-Resource!
TWiP Photo has posted a new review, #32, of the book "Art Photography Now" by Susan Bright.
