Sony Announces DMC-HX1

Tonight at the Sony Open House, they announced their brand new flagship Cyber Shot camera, and it didn’t disappoint. While they continued to woo us at the press conference with fancy videos and a guy who juggles glass bottles (he might have done something else, but the guy in front of me blocked my view most of the time), they had me at “Sweep Panorama mode”. Read all about the HX1 after the jump…

CES Day Two

Day two at CES brought news of even more exciting products, including new equipment from Olympus, Samsung, Canon, IPEVO and Pentax. Olympus showed us their entire lineup of nine cameras that were just announced here at CES, which will be available for consumers in March. The highlight was the Stylus Tough-8000, which is waterproof up to 33 feet (up to 133 with the separately purchased housing), can withstand being dropped from up to 6.6 feet, will survive being crushed with up to 220 pounds of pressure and is freeze-proof up to 14 degrees. Basically this thing can withstand any Hawaiian diving trip, Aspen snowboarding run, Moab off-road biking excursion, or night out at a bar here in Vegas (which can be just as dangerous as most extreme sports). Another cool feature of the Tough-8000 is the “Tap Control”, which means that if you’re skiing with bulky gloves, you can bypass fumbling awkwardly to try to press the buttons on the camera face and just “tap” the camera on different sides, to mirror the controls from the buttons, getting you to macro mode, playback, etc.

by Ron Eggers

Published March 2008

Compact digital cameras are getting better all the time. Resolutions are climbing; screens are getting larger, while, at the same time, the cameras themselves are getting smaller. And manufacturers are adding functionality such as video capabilities, voice recorder modes and wireless image transfer options. One of the best examples of one of this new generation of compact digital cameras is Nikon’s new CoolPix S51c, an 8.1-megapixel camera with a maximum sensor resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels.

A Capable Compact

by Jeff Dorgay

Published March 2008

If only cars got better, offered more performance and cost way less than they used to three or four years ago, we’d all be driving Porsches that got 50 miles to the gallon and cost $12,000. The good news for digicam buyers is this happens every day!

The Canon PowerShot A720 IS is a perfect example of this; 6x optical zoom, 8 megapixel sensor in a nice little compact case for $229. Memory cards cost more than this a year or two ago. It also includes Image Stabilization and quite a few different automatic modes to make basic picture taking as easy as falling out of bed.
