Sony DSC-T700 and DSC-T77 Digital Cameras AnnouncedSony is making the grade with the introduction of the stylish Cyber-shot® DSC-T700 and DSC-T77 digital cameras with "intelligent" shooting functions.The 10-megapixel T77 camera is Sony’s thinnest model at less than 5/8 of an inch with a 3-inch, 16 x 9 touch panel LCD screen. It features updated intelligent scene recognition technology, Smile Shutter™ and face detection technologies with child and adult priority, as well as high sensitivity shooting (up to ISO 3200), eleven scene modes, and in-camera image management.Sony is making the grade with the introduction of the stylish Cyber-shot® DSC-T700 and DSC-T77 digital cameras with "intelligent" shooting functions.The 10-megapixel T77 camera is Sony’s thinnest model at less than 5/8 of an inch with a 3-inch, 16 x 9 touch panel LCD screen. It features updated intelligent scene recognition technology, Smile Shutter™ and face detection technologies with child and adult priority, as well as high sensitivity shooting (up to ISO 3200), eleven scene modes, and in-camera image management.Substance and Style While rich in technologies, style was a key factor in the development of both cameras, said Lubell. They feature a newly-developed Carl Zeiss® lens that integrates a 4x optical zoom and Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization, yet achieves a slim form factor. They will also be available in a wider selection of color options than previous T-series cameras.Both cameras feature updated intelligent scene recognition technology that can now select up to eight different scene modes, including macro, portrait and landscape modes.This technology also includes a new anti-blink function in portrait mode that will virtually make closed-eyed photos an “old school” memory. The cameras will automatically take two shots and then determine whether the subject(s) have closed eyes using their advanced face detection technology. They will only record images with open-eyed subjects. If both pictures have subject(s) with closed eyes, the cameras will record one and display a warning so you can try again.Sony’s Smile Shutter technology has also been improved. It is easily accessible as a “smiley face” icon, which is now a permanent fixture on the camera’s LCD screen in record mode, and can be toggled off and on at the touch of a finger. And during smile capture, auto focus and zoom functions are available, as well as the ability to take a limitless number of shots.Not One, But Two Photo Libraries in Your PocketThe T700 camera (above) is ideal for anyone who wants to have what Lubell calls “bragging” photos of their kids, pets, vacation or sports highlights with them at all times.Owing to the model’s internal database, thousands of photos can be searched in-camera by event, date, smile or face, including children and infants; displayed in calendar or chronological views; organized in folders; and shared as slide shows or fun scrapbooks.Unlike previous models, this one allows you to store and manage images on both its 4GB internal memory and an optional Memory Stick® media card. You can maximize the number of pictures stored on the camera with the bundled Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software application and its new PC Synch feature.This new feature lets you downsize images from full-resolution to VGA and export them back to the camera’s internal photo album. The application operates intelligently with the camera so you can shoot more photos. It will only detect, downsize and export the new shots. This allows you to store literally thousands of your favorite photos in the cameraIt is also possible to export photos shot by other cameras or archived on other media into the camera.The PMB Portable software inside the camera lets you easily upload photos or videos to popular social networking sites like You[...]



Nikon adds 'touchscreen' to Coolpix line

Fri, 08 Aug 2008 13:10:00 +0000

Nikon adds 'touchscreen' to Coolpix line

(image)
Nikon has added a 3.5in 'touchscreen' to one of six new digital compact cameras.

The 10-million-pixel Coolpix S60 (pictured) allows users to control all camera functions apart from the power and shutter release, via the screen, according to Nikon UK's digital camera product manager Niki Needham. Users can control AF and AE by pressing the relevant area of the 16:9 widescreen display using 'finger touch' or by deploying the supplied stylus. The screen carries a resolution of 230,000 dots.

Due out on 19 September priced £299.99, the S60 includes Face Recognition, Smile Timer with blink detection, time-lapse movies and HDMi TV output. The Smile Timer function is designed to automatically release the shutter when the camera detects a smile on the face of a subject.

Nikon's Best Shot Selector mode can capture a maximum of ten sequential shots and aims to automatically save the sharpest image. 'This is ideal for macro close-up shooting when camera shake is difficult to avoid,' explains the firm.

Features also include imaging sensor shift-type Vibration Reduction and ISO 3200 for resolutions up to 5MP.

The 5x lens delivers the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 33-165mm zoom.

The S60 weighs 145g (without battery and memory card) and measures around 97.5x60x22mm.

Also unveiled today is the Coolpix S710, a 14.5MP model sporting a 28-101mm lens (in 35mm terms), a 3in screen and a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12,800 (at a maximum of 3MP resolution). In stores next month priced a penny under £300, the 'premium compact' also boasts shutter and aperture priority and manual exposure options.

Nikon has revamped its S550 to reveal the 10MP S560, the key difference being the inclusion of CCD-shift image Vibration Reduction.

Meanwhile, replacing the S600 is the S610, a 10MP model which will come in a Wi-Fi version (S610c). The latter allows the user to connect to Nikon's 'myPicturetown' image sharing website, a service that also allows file storage. Both models will cost £249.99.

The new 10 Megapixel FinePix Z200fd is the latest addition to its popular range of ultra-slim, metal-bodied, high performance compact digital cameras and includes a 5x optical zoom (33-165mm equivalent), Dual Image Stabilization, Face Detection and Automatic red-eye removal, 52MB internal memory, ISO 100-1600, Wide View 2.7" LCD, Blog and Auction Modes, and dual memory support (xD and SD/SDHC).

It's all about the timing The FinePix Z200fd features two brand new self-timer modes: Couple Timer and Group Timer. Working in combination with Face Detection technology, the self-timer automatically sets off after the camera has detected faces in a frame. The camera won't take the photo if one of the faces is out the frame, so there's no need to worry about someone being missed out of the shot! Cheek-to-cheek The Couple Timer mode cleverly detects two faces in a frame and will automatically release the shutter button as the two faces come closer together. The Couple Timer mode has three settings so users can set the timer to detect faces at various distances, whether they are standing side by side, or cheek-to-cheek. The more the merrier Group shots have never been so easy. The FinePix Z200fd's Group Timer mode can detect up to four faces in a frame and automatically sets the timer to take that precious shot.

Cutting edge design and packed with features The FinePix Z200fd houses powerful features in an elegant, metal body. This stylish camera comes in four attractive colors – a black and red combination, pink, silver and black – and has a unique diagonally sliding lens cover with a snazzy 'Z' logo that illuminates when the camera is switched on. Its slim design means that it can fit easily into a cluttered handbag or jean pocket so your camera is always to the ready. Beneath its trendy exterior, the FinePix Z200fd boasts an impressive Fujinon 5x zoom lens (33-165mm equivalent), Dual Image Stabilization, which combines CCD-shift and high ISO to combat the problem of camera shake and blurry images, and ISO sensitivity up to 1600. There's also Fujifilm's Intelligent Flash system, which sets the power output to achieve natural foreground illumination with balanced background exposure for more natural looking photos. For users who cannot decide whether to use a flash or not, Natural Light plus Flash mode takes two photos in quick succession, one with flash and one without. Both photos are then displayed side by side for quick comparison allowing users to decide which one they prefer.The FinePix Z200fd makes perfect portraits simple with Fujifilm's Face Detection technology. Face Detection works by triangulating eyes and mouth, using an algorithm to optimize focus, white balance and exposure for up to ten faces in a single frame, and is not confused by spectacles. In addition, the automatic red-eye removal feature can find and instantly correct any red eye from every face in the frame, saving the user the time consuming process of doing it aft[...]

So, you never miss a perfect smile. Blink Detection Making blinking a thing of the pastWith the new Blink Detection technology from Samsung, there’s a good chance you’ll never take another bad picture again. Blink Detection prohibits you from taking a picture while the subject has his or her eyes closed. If the camera detects that the subject is blinking before the picture is taken, it automatically takes three shots in rapid succession to capture a picture while the eye is open. Once the shot is taken, Blink Detection will warn you in the event the subject is blinking again. Self Portrait Taking the perfect self portrait just got easierWith new face-detection software, the camera lets you know when you’re in the picture with a beep. So say goodbye to the difficulties that taking your own picture used to be, and say hello to great photos on the first try. Sophisticated face recognition algorithms eliminate the tedium of taking shots you do not like or can not use by making sure that your subject is well framed in the center of the picture and the[...]



PENTAX Intros 10-Megapixel Optio E60 Budget Digital Camera

Tue, 29 Jul 2008 13:58:00 +0000

(image)
PENTAX has just introduced the Optio E60, the brand's new "budget" 10 megapixel digital camera. With prices of consumer goods skyrocketing these days, some of the less-interested would put off buying gadgets in favor of basic daily necessities. As such, I believe there's a market for Optio E60 not only in countries with developing economies but in the developed world as well.

Don't expect anything fancy though; the PENTAX Optio E60 has an optical 3X zoom lens with wide angle that makes it perfect for landscape photography. Other features include face recognition, auto picture, High Sensitivity Digital Shake Reduction, World Time and Date Imprint functions, Image Recovery function, and a mode called "Green" that automatically sets parameters with a single touch for new users. Running on two AA batteries, PENTAX Optio E60 will be available starting October for $140.

Vivitar's ViviCam 6200w digital camera is ideal for your fishy snaps

Mon, 28 Jul 2008 11:45:00 +0000

Fancy yourself as a budding Jacques Cousteau? Well, with the Vivitar ViviCam 6200w digital camera in your hand, you can get up close and personal with allsorts of sea and pond life.

Except that underwater functionality masks a fairly humdrum specification, which includes a 6MP sensor, 4x digital zoom, a 2-inch LCD screen, SD slot and 16MB of on-board memory. And you can only go down to a drop of 10 metres.

But the worst thing is the price - 350 Euros
