Nikon COOLPIX S600

Boasting a blistering start up speed of 0.7 seconds and the the world’s smallest body for a compact digital camera of its type (ie. one equipped with a 28mm zoom lens and optical vibration reduction), Nikon’s 10 mega-pixel S600 leads a flurry of new additions to the company's COOLPIX compact digital camera range. The S600 is exceptionally portable at 130 g (4.6 oz.) and features automatic light sensitivity control between ISO 100 and ISO 800 (with manual settings up to ISO 3200), Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization technology, a 2.7-inch LCD monitor that has been given anti-reflection coating as well as improved shooting displays and revised icons, three movie modes and 14 different scene modes including the new "Active Child" mode which allows you to frame and select a moving subject before shooting.  Read More

Sony expand DSLR range

February 8, 2008 Sony has added the Alpha 350 to its digital SLR line-up. Even by today's lofty standards, the unit earns the tag of high-definition with its 14.2-megapixel CCD image sensor, a feature backed by in-built Super SteadyShot image stabilization, sensitivity up to ISO3200 for faster shutter speeds and Quick AF Live View technology, which delivers live image previews (a feature lacking in most digital SLRs up until recent times) with through-the-lens phase-detection autofocusing via the 2.7-inch variable angle LCD. The A350 also boasts an anti-dust protection system and batteries that last long enough for up to 730 shots on a single charge when using the optical viewfinder.  Read More

Key features of the 10.2 megapixel unit include an Integrated Dust Reduction System, extensive on-board editing, 0.19-second power-up, continuous shooting of up to 100 JPEG images at 3 frames per second, image stabilization and a new Eye Sensor function that turns off the 2.5-inch color LCD monitor when the viewfinder is being used and automatically switches it back on when the user moves their eye away.  Read More

3M's miniature projection engine

January 22, 2008 Miniature projection modules are seen as the answer to the problem of combining "big-screen" convenience with ever shrinking mobile device platforms and, in the same way that mobile phone cameras seemed to become commonplace almost overnight, consumers can expect highly-effective projection to become standard in phones and other handheld equipment in the not-too-distant future. The latest development from 3M gives a clear indication of where the emerging field is headed. Designed for integration into virtually any mobile platform and now available to manufacturers, the company's LED-illuminated projection engine is capable of throwing a 40-inch or larger VGA image from an ultra-compact module that's less than half an inch thick.  Read More

The JVC Everio GZ-MG360

January 21, 2008 JVC’s new G series of Everio hard disk camcorders announced at CES 2008 offer new functions that make operation simpler and more intuitive and feature a new, super-slim design that’s some 20 percent smaller than last year’s entry-level model. The new, colorful five-model Everio G lineup for 2008 consists of four 680K-pixel models and one 7 Megapixel model. The four 680K-pixel camcorders include two 30GB models and two 60GB models, while the lone 7 Megapixel model comes with 30GB of recording space. All models feature a new Laser Touch Operation user interface – moving a finger up or down a touch-sensitive illuminated scroll bar just to the left of the LCD monitor screen allows users to browse through and select video clips to view or edit, and operate menus for camera set-up. The 2.7-inch widescreen LCD’s high-resolution GUI is linked to Laser Touch movements, but the feature eliminates the risk of smudging or damaging the screen that users face with a touch-screen interface.  Read More
