Jeff Keller examines Toshiba's first 4 megapixel digicam...
Our friends at the Digital Camera Resource Page website have now posted their review of the Toshiba PDR-M81 digital camera, a camera first announced back in May of this year. Jeff concludes:
"The Toshiba PDR-M81 is a very good camera, that's packed with features while delivering quality photos as well. I liked the manual controls, easy of use, playback mode, and quality of the camera body. On the negative side, I wish it had manual white balance, a TIFF mode, faster recording speeds, and a larger included SmartMedia card. The only other low-priced model I've tried is the Sony DSC-S85, and I'd have to give it the edge over the PDR-M81 (better lens, manual white balance, TIFF mode). I wouldn't ignore the PDR-M81 at all - if you're not bothered by my negatives then it might fit the bill just fine." When you're done with Jeff's full review, get a second opinion from the Steve's Digicams review, posted back on June 20th. There's also a preview of the camera by Arthur Bleich, posted on July 11th...
