Cameras forum

General discussion


Does anyone out there have one yet? Any definite word as to when they will be hitting the U.S. market? I have seen the spects and limited write ups but can't seem to find a review for an actual "street version", all of the articles are based on the "test cameras".

There is a very good review at:
I bought the S60 as soon as it showed up at Frye's, in Las Vegas. I haven't shot enough with it to say a whole lot about images straight from the cam, but I shoot in RAW anyway, and post process as a matter of course. In that regard, I would stress that the S60 is a cam that was made for people who want the very most pure camera available in the physical size of the S60. It can be used in "auto" or "program", and there is nothing wrong with that. It's a good one for those who want excellent image quality from the beginning, with many options that encourage your photographic growth.
If you compare it to any of the 6 Mp P&S models, you will find that the S60 is the optimum for this CCD size. 6 Mp offers nothing but higher noise. Please don't confuse that remark in regards to 6 Mp CMOS based DSLR's. Different animal.
For me, there was no other choice, just because the S60 is such a complete package. I'll be shooting a lot more with mine in the near future, and posting galleries at:
Right now, the galleries are all about the Dimage A2. There will be more with that as well, but the S60 is with me at ALL times. That's why I got it.
