<p>Here's a trio of reviews of superzoom cameras, including one of the winner's of <a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/98520/digital-photography-review-rounds-up-13-travel-zoom-cameras.html" target="_blank">dpreview's travel zoom round up</a>, the Samsung WB650<a href="http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/samsung_wb650_review/" target="_blank">. PhotographyBLOG reviews it</a>, and like dpreview, came away pretty impressed by it. Between this and the <a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/98443/luminous-landscape-examines-the-samsung-tl500-ex1.html" target="_blank">Samsung EX1/TL500</a>, it seems that Samsung's slowly creeping in as a viable brand for digital cameras. Hopefully they can keep the momentum going in this very tight market.</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1277448696.usr15670.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>More cameras after the read link.</p><p><MORE /></p><p><a href="http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/kodak_easyshare_z981_review/" target="_blank">PhotographyBLOG also reviews Kodak's Easyshare Z981</a>, but is not as impressed. Does anyone still buy Kodak cameras? I still remember talking to the newly-appointed local marketing manager for Kodak digital cameras back in 2003 or 2004, and he was asking for some feedback on Kodak cameras. My reply to him was along the lines of "bland cameras, you're going to be in for a tough ride". After some interesting releases shortly after that, Kodak seems to have sunk into relative annoymity. I haven't seen a decent review of any of their cameras for a very long time!</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1277449329.usr15670.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Finally, <a href="http://www.digicamreview.com/2010/06/canon-powershot-sx210-is-review.html" target="_blank">DigiCamReview reviews the Canon Powershot SX210</a>, and were suitably impressed by it. Personally with Panasonic's TZ series having bettered Canon's attempts at every release, and some tough competition from the likes of Samsung and Casio, I think only the Canon die-hards will buy it.</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1277449503.usr15670.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p>
