Camera comparison in PC Authority

Hi guys,

got my new magazine PC authority today and there is a very good review of the Canon EOS 5D.

And also a comparaitve of the: (in order from best to worst)

Canon EOS 350D - ultimate winner
Nikon D50 - Recommended and a close 2nd to the canon
Konica Minolta Dynax 5D
Pentax *ist DL
Fujifil Finepix S9500 Zoom
Olympus Digitial E-300 kit

The nikon and then canon stood out, so if you are looking to get a camera, then the $9 cost is well worth it for the mag!!!

It is not from an astronomy background, if anyone has any questions, I will post some facts etc with due reference to pcauthority of course

Have they tested them for long exposures at least?

"..for our low-light night shot, we take the cameras out to the city. We shoot at each camera's lowewst ISO setting as well as up to ISO 800 to find how effective each camera is at keeping noise out of images at higher sensitivities..."

they do talk about noise
