Casio releases tiny 12-megapixel compact

September 4, 2007 In years gone by, we wondered what we were going to do with the huge amounts of data from our decadent five and seven-megapixel digital compact cameras.

Each shot at the EX-Z1200’s highest setting now takes up nearly 8mb of card storage, and you’ll now need a 4000x3000 pixel monitor if you want to display your holiday snaps at full resolution.  Read More

September 2, 2007 It’s one of those things that you really have to see with your own eyes to fully comprehend – just how close Hitachi’s ultra short throw LCD projector can be to the screen. The figure of 42 cm for a 60 inch screen just doesn’t hit the brain with quite the same impact as seeing it because we really did a double-take. The CP-A100/ED-A100 LCD projector is the first of a new generation of projectors that may well “revolutionise the way that projectors are used in education and business” as the press hand-outs claim.  Read More
