    Canon Powershot A650 IS

    As far as dependability and being steady in the picture department is concerned, the Canon Powershot A650 IS is the Paul Burrell of the keen amateur class. Matt Grayson investigates if this camera has a history of ripping off its shirt.

  • Thumbnail : Ricoh GXR, 50mm & 24-72mm

    Ricoh GXR, 50mm & 24-72mm

    Ricoh have taken a totally new and radical approach to the design of their GXR: the digital sensor is built into the lens. Very innovative indeed but is it any good, and more importantly who is going to buy it?

  • Thumbnail : Lensbaby Composer

    Lensbaby Composer

    The Lensbaby Composer builds on the current range of sweet spot lenses with an innovative ball and socket for accurate focusing.
