    Nikon CoolPix S500

    Short, squat with a chubby little body. No, it isn't Duncan Evans (though it would be an easy mistake to make), it's the new compact from Nikon.

    Pantone Huey Pro Calibration unit

    With a name like Pantone, the huey Pro is opening itself up to all sorts of shampoo jokes and Matt Grayson has sworn not to come up with any. So in a bid to halt all that, he's just going to scan and go... Damn.

    Olympus E-520

    In a sector of the market that's becoming more crowded than a west end pub, Olympus introduce yet another model to its Four Thirds system. Peter Bargh drinks in the atmosphere and checks out the latest talent to see if it's a luxurious cocktail or a pint of watered down ale.

    Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd

    Close your bedroom curtains! Matt Grayson is testing the Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd with 18x optical zoom.

    Canon EOS 50D

    Matt Grayson takes a close look at the recently announced Canon EOS 50D.

  • Thumbnail : Samsung NV9

    Samsung NV9

    With a futuristic design and retro dashboard clocks, the Samsung NV9 looks like something straight out of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Matt Grayson prepares for some bad acting and too much CGI.
