The Casio EX-FC100

Casio impressed everyone last year by displaying their high speed technology in the EX-F1 and EX-FH20 prosumer digital cameras. The high speed technology enabled functions like high burst shooting and high speed video, allowing users to capture images and video faster than the eye can see - providing an ultra slow motion effect. Now, at CES 2009, Casio has announced that it has squished these functions into a compact camera with its new EXILIM models, the EX-FS10 and the EX-FC100. By bringing the art of high speed photography into a convenient pocket sized form, Casio has once again brought digital camera standards to a new level. Both cameras are capable of up to a 30 shot-per-second burst rate (at 6.0 megapixel resolution) and high-speed movies at a maximum of 1000 fps. Regular images can be captured at 9.1 megapixels.  Read More

Three turntables are available at under US$2000 for photographic subjects up to 25 pounds, through to US$8000 plus for photo models up to 700 pounds. The system runs on a Windows PC or Intel Mac and connects to a quality digital camera and an industrial strength turntable. The PhotoCapture 360 software synchronizes turntable movement, camera settings and picture taking to automatically capture up to 200 pictures per rotation then turn it into a 360-degree flash animation r animated gif. Check out this girl, this remarkable double animation, and these other examples as an idea of what’s possible. The PhotoCapture system is of enormous relevance to millions of internet retailers for increasing online conversion rates, plus professional communicators of all hues.  Read More

Vizit - touch screen digital photo frame uses mobile network

January 9, 2009 Vizit is a two-way communication, fully interactive digital photo frame that enables users to send and receive digital photos over the mobile network .

Vizit leverages the mobile network to securely receive photos from one’s cell phone, e-mail, computer or other Internet photo management sites. Users can also send pictures from one Vizit to another Vizit, or even multiple Vizits, enabling them to build a community of friends and family who are sharing their lives from geographically disparate locations.  Read More

Kodak's innovative 24X zoom Z980 Digital Camera

January 8, 2009 Kodak has worked relentlessly to ensure it is still a heavyweight contender as the world of photography has moved from silver halide to digital, and its new 12 MPX Z980 Digital Camera shows it is still on its game. Apart from an image-stabilized 24X optical zoom lens, the US$400 Z980 has an innovative vertical shutter release that will be very useful for those who like to use the long zoom to pull their subjects in very close. "The clever design is a second shutter on the side that becomes the shutter button when you turn the camera to take a landscape shot", says Gizmag's Noel McKeegan (pictured). "The navigation dial also becomes the zoom button when you do this, making it a very comfy camera to use both ways." There's no accelerometer (next model?), so it doesn't happen automatically. You have to flick a switch on the top of the body to engage this function. It’s also the flagship digital camera running the company’s new Smart Capture software, which automatically adjusts the camera’s settings to consistently deliver high quality images.  Read More
