Nikon recently added two new compact cameras to its lineup. The new COOLPIX S1100pj broadens your ability to share photos, documents, and more with its built-in projector and ability to connect to your computer via USB. When connected to a PC, the camera can project anything that is displayed on the computer screen or JPEG images saved on the camera's memory card or internal memory. The projector in the COOLPIX S1100pj is 40 percent brighter than its predecessor. This 14-lumen internal projector works with the camera's touchscreen user interface. For ease of use, the camera also has a built-in stand. The COOLPIX S1100pj can project images up to 47-inches from over 7-feet away. Additional features... Read more...
Most of you already see the world in 3D, so why not come out with a camera that takes 3D photos and movies? One reason would be that you already tried that and, well, things didn't turn out so hot. But rather than tuck its tail between its legs and give up, FujiFlim has stormed back to the market with its FinePix RealPix Real 3D W3, the followup act to the ill-regarded W1. This time around FujiFilm bumped up the LCD screen real estate to 2.5 inches, added 720p video recording, and HDMI 1.4 for viewing those pics and videos straight away on your swank HDTV. "Last year, Fujifilm introduced the first real, complete solution for 3D digital photography, once again showing our commitment to the evolution... Read more...
Samsung's ST80 digital camera might be just the cure for social networking nuts who get the shakes when unplugging from cyberspace for too long. That's because the ST80 is Samsung's latest in a line of Wi-Fi enabled point-and-shoots, meaning Little Miss Molly MySpace and Freddy Facebook can fling those Kodak Samsung moments online from any hotspot instead of having to rush home to fire up their PC. "We want to let people share their favorite pictures quickly while they’re on the move, and the ST80 does just that," said Sangjin Park, President of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics. "Connectivity is everywhere, and at Samsung we are committed to bringing these wireless capabilities... Read more...
Maybe you're not interested in forking over a handful of hundreds for one of Samsung's new DualView cameras. That's okay, Samsung isn't holding a grudge, and to prove it, the company has gone and released a sub-$200 point-and-shoot that should slide neatly into your shirt or pants pocket. It's called the PL200, a stylish little digicam that measures a scant 3.9 x 2.3 x 0.83 inches, yet harbors a respectable 3.0-inch LCD screen. "The PL200 is the ideal digital camera for those who value simplicity but also long for a more immersive digital imaging experience," said Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of Mobile Entertainment Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. "With the PL200, consumers can... Read more...
Panasonic introduced five new digital cameras, including a hybrid model with a MOS sensor, two "bright-lens" cameras, a rugged model, and a super zoom. Bright-lens is a marketing term that describes cameras with a lens aperture that can open much larger than most point and shoot models. By offering a larger aperture, the cameras allow more light to be directed through the lens to the image sensor. As one of Panasonic's compact models, the new LUMIX DMC-FX700 packs many advanced features into a sleek, slim package. The LUMIX FX700 can record 1080 full HD videos in the AVCHD format. It also has a 3-inch touchscreen LCD, 24mm ultra wide-angle F2.2 super bright LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens, and... Read more...

This camera can also record 720p HD video in the AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) Lite format. Other features include a 3-inch touchscreen interface that controls most of the camera functions, a new Motion Deblur mode, Intelligent Zoom mode, and a so-called Happy Mode which increases the saturation and brightness of images in-camera. Panasonic also announced a new 8mm/f3.5 fisheye lens for its Lumix G line of Micro Four Thirds cameras. This new lens has a 180-degree field of... Read more...
Not long ago, we learned about Walmart's plan to expand its consumer electronics offerings. The big-box retailer is not alone. Target also has a system-wide plan to upgrade its TV, gaming, and digital imaging sections and product offerings.  The rollout began last month and should be completed by June. With the new CE department design, Target stores will get an updated TV wall that should make it easier for consumers to compare TVs across brands. Along with the display, Target plans to offer clear signs that highlight product features, making it even easier to compare models. The display also will present models in "a more realistic in-home presentation." In addition to a change in display... Read more...

Back at PMA earlier in the year, Sony teased us with prototypes of the company's forthcoming "Alpha Compact" cameras. These were similar in style to the Micro Four Thirds options already on the market from Olympus and Panasonic, combining the size of a point-and-shoot with the flexibility of a lens-changing DSLR. Today, Sony has come clean with those very cameras, giving them official names and specification sheets. Sony's two new Alpha compact interchangeable lens digital cameras are the NEX-5 and NEX-3, both of which promise to provide "the quality of a digital SLR in a compact body that is easy to slip into a small purse or jacket pocket for ultimate portability." They're also the world's... Read more...
Talk about a blast from the past. Polaroid is bringing back instant photography, and this time, we're not talking about a portable printer. At the end of last year, Polaroid announced plans to offer a One Step Camera sometime in 2010. Now, the company is celebrating the return of instant film photography by officially launching the Polaroid 300 camera. The Polaroid 300 camera is the first of many new products the company intends to deliver. The Polaroid 300 features classic Polaroid instant film, an automatic flash, and four scene setting modes. "We are thrilled that today marks the return of instant.  It's bigger – and better – than ever. The Polaroid Movement is one that we... Read more...
To say that Leica is a trusted name in the camera industry is just too easy. That's a well-known fact, and we doubt it'll change anytime soon. The company is primarily known for shipping extremely expensive and rare rangefinders, which are smaller cameras with larger sensors that can approach DSLR quality in a body that's barely larger than the average point and shoot camera. Today, that very company is introducing one of their cheaper models: the V-LUX 20.It's modeled after Panasonic's ZS7, and in reality, not much has changed on the Leica version. The price tag, of course, is one of them. There's a 12.1MP sensor, built-in GPS tagging, a 12x optical zoom lens (C-VARIO-ELMAR 4.1-49.2mm f/3.3-4.9... Read more...
After a month-long online campaign to promote its launch, Pentax is finally unveiling the 645D medium format digital camera. This is the first digital version of the company's 645 medium format camera system. It features a 40 megapixel, 44 x 33 CCD sensor as well as a 921k dot 3.0-inch LCD. The camera is compatible with the existing 645 system lenses. Sadly, the camera will initially be available only in Japan. It will carry a suggested price of ¥850,000 (approximately US $9,400) and should be available in May.

For the longest time, there were two main choices when it came to selecting a digital camera. You either purchased a DSLR, or you purchased a point and shoot. Needless to say, both of these options provided drastically different results, and there has been little in the middle to satisfy those who didn't want to jump into one camp or the other. And then, the Micro Four Thirds system was introduced. This solution packs DSLR-like image quality into a camera that's just barely larger than a typical point and shoot. Today, Panasonic has introduced two new cameras in their Micro Four Thirds lineup. The Lumix DMC-G2 is the G1's successor, and for the most part, it's almost the same camera. Very little...

If you can dish it, the Pentax Optio W90 digicam can probably take it. In fact, there's not much this rugged eleventh-gen Optio can't take, including water, shock, and extremely low temps.According to Pentax, you can submerge the W90 in up to 20 feet of water, making it a suitable option for snorkeling and pool parties alike. It's also shockproof up to 4 feet, and able to withstand sub-freezing temps in case you find yourself chasing the abominable snowman, banished to Siberia, or living in Michigan.Outside of its rugged design, the Optio W90 also boasts a 12.1 megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio, Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card connectivity, the ability to capture 720p...

The PMA show is underway, and we're seeing plenty of announcements from all of the top camera manufacturers. Not to be left out, Casio showed up to the show with a few new models that are designed to balance technology with style. The new EX-S7 and the EX-Z35 compact digital cameras are part of the EXILIM line and feature a slim and stylish compact design. Both models feature Casio’s latest EXILIM Engine 5.0.

The EX-S7 also features Casio's Dynamic Photo feature which is a Hollywood-like green-screen effect that lets... Read more...
You knew that Samsung, Sony, FujiFilm, Canon and Nikon made cameras, but did you know that the same company that makes kitchen appliances and medical systems does as well? General Imaging, which is the exclusive licensee of GE digital cameras, has just debuted a slew of new compact cameras at the PMA 2010 camera expo in California, and all of them fall within the bargain realm. There's a pretty wide variety of options as well, and while GE doesn't have the marketing power in the camera department like some of the mainstays do, these prices might just grab some eyes. Here's a look at the 2010 GE camera lineup below.GE Active Series - G5WP The waterproof G5WP features a sturdy metal design and... Read more...
Need more camera news? PMA has it. Samsung has remained a steady and solid competitor in the point and shoot market, and while they have thus far stayed an arm's length away from the highly competitive DSLR market, some of these new cameras could very well replace a low-end DSLR for someone who doesn't need the option of swapping out lenses. The new HMX-U20 ($250) and the HMX-U15 ($230) both offer lots of new features, including Full HD video, built-in USB connectivity and an HDMI port. The U20 offers a 3x optical zoom, and both are looking to rival the Flip UltraHD and all of those other "pocket camcorders" that have made such an impact in a YouTube-obsessed world.The TL500 is a more standard...

Ricoh generally only drops by to introduce a few new camera bodies each year, so whenever they do, we can't help but stop and pay attention. The newest point and shoot from the company is not only a real looker, but one that could be a promising performer. The CX3 is the latest unit in the growing CX lineup, and while it's small in stature, it has a few features that are currently unheard of in a camera this small. Designed to fit into just about any pocket yet provide pro-level characteristics, the CX3 has a new 10MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor that should deliver a new level of detail to low-light photography. Generally, low-light kills point and shoot cameras. They simply can't handle the... Read more...

Canon's Digital Elph line of point and shoot cameras may have the vast majority of the mindshare amongst camera owners and to-be owners, but Samsung sure is making some progress. Here lately, the company's pocket cam offerings have been nothing short of drool-worthy, with stylish enclosures and specification lists that rival those put out by more "mainstream" competitors. Today, the TL110 and TL105 join Samsung's growing range of respectable shooters, and both are slim enough to easily fit within the pockets of even the tightest jeans. The TL110 is just .65" thick and boasts a 14.2MP sensor and 5x optical zoom, while the TL105 has a 12.1MP sensor, 4x optical zoom and 2.7" LCD. Both feature improved... Read more...
