If you somehow managed to not get that point and shoot camera for Christmas that you had been begging for, Samsung just might have something that'll suit your fancy coming up. We suspect that the company will make this "more official" sometime soon, but given that a fully detailed product page has already been erected, we're assuming that you can go ahead and mark this one down as a sure bet. The Samsung CL80 is one of the more advanced point and shoot cameras that we've seen in quite some time, boasting a 14MP sensor, built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, a 3.7" AMOLED touch panel, a compact size, 31mm wide-angle lens, frame guide, smart album and 7x optical zoom.

Super Talent released a new compact digital storage product line, CFast storage cards. The CFast storage card uses a SATA interface to offer improved and unmatched write/read performance speeds.

The CFast Storage Card has a single-chip controller and flash memory... Read more...
Earlier this year, Panasonic, Fujifilm, and Canon announced rugged cameras that could withstand drops, water, and much more. When these models were announced, we couldn't help but notice that Casio was absent from the list, especially since the company has its own G-SHOCK brand that already offers shock-resistant timepieces and a water-resistant mobile phone. Fast-forward a few months, and Casio is now ready to join other manufacturers in offering a shock-resistant, waterproof, and dustproof camera. In addition to being rugged, the new EX-G1 offers many of the same features you'd find on today's newest digital cameras. For instance, this 12.1 megapixel camera can capture video in widescreen format... Read more...

Remember 'How Stella Got Her Groove Back?' We're not saying this comeback is anywhere near that monumental, but Polaroid is a pretty huge brand in the grand scheme of things. It's an icon in the consumer electronics/digital imaging industry, and while it certainly peaked years ago, there's nothing like a second wind to get consumers buzzing again. After filing for Chapter 11 and being picked up by Summit Global Group, it seems the company is itching to return the brand to its rightful place atop the throne. Granted, competition is a lot tougher today and consumer desires are vastly different, but hey, if Apple can go from near-dead to nearly unstoppable, why not these guys?In an announced made...
