If you’re in the market for that 5 mega pixel / 4x zoom digital camera, Digital Photography Review has posted reviews for the Canon PowerShot G5, Nikon Coolpix 5400, and Sony DSC-V1. The Sony seems to have come out on top because of its smaller size and price tag $100 less than the Canon or Nikon, but these cameras are so close that it’s really gonna come down to brand loyalty. You simply can’t go wrong with any of them.
One thing I did notice is Nikon has solved all of the chromatic aberrations and “white burn” problems people (including myself) have complained about in the past. This being the case, I would definitely go the Nikon route again and pick up the sturdier, feature rich, manual heaven Coolpix 5400.
