Whether you’re an amateur photographer or someone who’s more serious about photography, a D-SLR can provide a lot of benefits over a simple point and shoot camera. With a D-SLR, you’ll get faster shooting speeds, better optics (and therefore a better quality picture), the ability to change lenses for ultimate flexibility, complete control over image exposure, sharpness, other image quality settings and a lot more. Like many products, there are entry-level D-SLRs, professional-grade D-SLRs, and plenty of models in between. Canon’s 50D blurs the line between amateur and professional D-SLR cameras. This camera strikes a good balance with its price and feature set. With the 50D, you get a lot of... Read more...
If we were to ask you to guess what the most popular camera models were on Flickr, you’d probably mention an affordable D-SLR from the likes of Nikon or Canon along with a point and shoot model or two. But what you might not guess is that Apple’s iPhone now holds a top spot, rivaling SLRs for popularity. Yahoo’s statistical counter of camera use among Flicker members, called the Flickr Camera Finder, shows that since the arrival of the iPhone 3G model earlier this year, the phone has surpassed all other camera phones, including the second place Nokia N95. It has also surpassed many traditional cameras. Traditionally, the top cameras on Flickr seem to be D-SLRs, which makes this accomplishment... Read more...
If you’re seriously considering taking your photography skills to the next level and have about eight grand lying around, then you’ll be interested to hear that Nikon announced the new D3X DSLR. While not cheap, this camera definitely brings its fair share of bragging rights. The D3X can take pictures that will put other cameras to shame, thanks in part to its 24.5-megapixel (6,048 x 4,032) CMOS FX sensor. Additionally, this high-end camera sports full resolution shooting at up to 5 frames per second, an ISO from 100 to 1600, and a newly updated EXPEED image processing system. As an upgrade to the 12.1-megapixel FX-format D3 introduced in 2007, the D3X is ready to tackle just about anything you... Read more...
Just in time for Christmas, Nikon is granting the wish of many by shipping the new GP-1 GPS add-on dongle. This handy little add-on was first announced back in August. The GP-1 geotags images taken with a compatible DSLR by recording latitude, longitude, altitude, and time information. Many image processing software programs support geotagging, including Nikon’s own ViewNX. Online services such as Flickr also support geotagging. According to Nokia, it’ll take about 45 seconds for the device to acquire satellites from a cold start, and only 5 seconds from a hot start. Approximate dimensions of the dongle are 2 x 1.8 x 1 inches. The GP-1 GPS slides into the hot-shoe on many DSLRs and connects to... Read more...
I came across some great new pictures of Nintendo's Revolution controller today(thanks blue!). The Wavebird adapter is not surprising as the system supports Gamecube titles. There's still plenty of criticism about the new controller, and Nintendo needs to show it off a little more, possibly with demos of current favorites such as Metroid or Zelda. Anyway, enjoy the news folks, goodnight! OCZ PC2 4200 Gold Edition (2x 1Gb) 3-3-3-8 @ Club Overclocker "For the past year I've always recommended 1gb of good DDR or DDR2. No more, no less. That was until I started playing new games like Doom 3, Half Life 2, and now Battlefield 2. While Doom 3 was more graphics card intensive, it also needed a ton... Read more...
