Budget camera comparison (under $180) at DC Resource [and waterproof group-test in Japan]
If you are lost in a sea of new sub-$200 compact digital camera models, you are not alone. There are trillions of them! But DC-Resource comes to the rescue, as they have just completed their budget-compact camera comparison featuring eight digital cameras (one per manufacturer) priced under $180. No Fuji or Casio, but the other eight mass-market major manufacturers are represented. We won't spoil their findings aqui, so be sure to check it out if interested! If you are in a hurry, here is a direct jump to the conclusions.
But wait there's more! The group-test season continues with a seasonal group-test at Japanese website DC Watch Impress (computer-translated), where they compare a variety of compact waterproof/elementproof digital cameras.
The group action continues at Photo Radar where they pick ten travel-zooms as part of their on-going buyer's guide. This is not a group-review, but more of a buyer's guide. [NEW!]
For more on this market segment, Digital Camera HQ posted their budget-compact guide earlier in the month, covering a price-range of about half a price-stop above. (one price-stop = $100)
