Epson L-500v review


The camera with the world's highest-definition display

The L-500's excellent display is a good selling point to be sure, but otherwise this is an ordinary camera

Epson L-500V


The Epson L-500V has been created, says Epson, to appeal to those snappers not enamoured of digital cameras with small LCDs. And the result is a stylish compact camera that has the ‘world's highest resolution' colour screen at 256 pixels per inch.

Simple to use and offering good image quality, the large Photo Fine screen is the stand out feature of a stylish little digital camera

Modest manual control, no optical viewfinder and slightly soft images tarnish an otherwise great little camera.

The Epson L-500V is great easy to use compact model that boasts enough resolution and image quality for prints up to A4 and over. The large screen is not unique on such digital cameras, but the high-resolution Photo Fine technology is a standout...

Epson L-500V Digital Camera


The quality of a digital camera is not the mega pixels it can produce although they obviously help, it is done to the quality of the lens (CCD) and the compression methods used.

Epson - L-500V


The first thing that strikes you about this compact digital camera is how slim and elegant it feels and how clearly laid out are the controls. Although the black casing would suggest a masculine character, testing ...

The Epson L-500V is stylish, compact, uncomplicated to use and has the advantage of the 5-megapixel colour and clarity added to a large LCD and some useful in-camera technology. This makes it highly attractive in a crowded marketplace.

Epson L-500V review


Epson's L-500V adds a new twist to the digital photography home market, adding fast continuous mode shooting (three frames per second) and user-choosable picture frames to their five megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom, a 2.5-inch LCD display, and an...

Epson L-500V


Very good image quality and a big, beautiful LCD make this camera an attractive package.

Attractive, compact, and sturdy. Large LCD. Very good pictures. Decent video.

No optical viewfinder. Limited manual controls. LCD is hard to read in bright sunlight.

If simplicity were a virtue, Epson's $349, 5-megapixel point-and-shoot would be saintly. Bucking the trend of stuffing more and more features into a small digital camera, the L-500V gives you just the basic exposure controls--perfectly adequate for...

The camera's second unusual function seems a bit funky, but will appeal to some snapshooters. Epson's Print Image Framer is a collection of digital "frames" that you can add to your photos to give them an extra touch of fun. The frame is associated...
