  • Japanese company offers flashlight with integrated video camera for use at crime scenes

    Japanese accessory maker Carrot Systems began to sell a flashlight [JP] last month, which is able to record video and sound via an integrated mini CMOS camera and microphone. The AD-1500 stores recordings in MP4 format on miniSD cards. 2GB can hold up to 180 minutes of video material. The flashlight is ready for infra-red video recording (within a distance of 4 meters). Carrot Systems wants… Read More

  • Logitech's Mac-only QuickCam puzzles, does video


    For those of you who don’t know what that little dot is for on top of your MacBook, iMac, or MacBook Pro, Logitech has something for you. The QuickCam Vision Pro is a Mac-only 2.0-megapixel webcam that sells for $129.99 and it lets you “enjoy lifelike video on iChat or Skype,” provided that your life is two-dimensional. Why Mac-only? Who the heck knows. Maybe all the… Read More

  • Space camera to monitor deforestation in Congo Basin

    The UK and Norwegian governments are getting set to launch a $215 million project designed to “curb climate change by preventing deforestation” in the Congo Basin, according to BBC News. Part of the project involves a satellite-mounted high definition camera capable of capturing a 55 mile-wide area of the forest in one fell swoop. A single pixel can capture about ten square… Read More

  • Possible Nikon D700 promotional material

    In anticipation of the release of the Nikon D700, the rumor mills are in full swing. In April, there were rumors about the new body design. Then in May, information came out about Nikon’s possible hybrid viewfinder. It is now June and we have yet another new Nikon D700 rumor. The fine people at Photography Bay are reporting that they have photos of promotional material for Nikon’s… Read More

  • We put our hands all over the Sony Ericsson C905

    After just about every bean the C905 had to offer spilled out last week, I’ve been achin’ to check out this portly-but-pretty 8.1 megapixel shooter phone. I had a brief opportunity to put my mitts all over it following Sony Ericsson’s press announcement in Singapore – read about it over at MobileCrunch. Read More

  • Last call for Polaroid instant film – better move fast


    Alas, as you may know, Polaroid is stepping out of the film business, and although I’m sure 3rd-party film will be available at a premium in the future, Polaroid has set the dates after which their instant film will no longer be available. Check out the link below for the info on when the film cartridges for your camera will die the true death. [via Geeksugar] Read More

  • Orb Ball Recorder: Not that kind of ball recorder

    Apparently you simply drop an SD card into this bugger, press a button, and take pictures. It’s designed to fit almost anywhere — they recommend the eyeball of a mannequin — and records up to six hours of video on a 2GB card. Sadly it lasts only 3 hours on battery but that’s enough to roll it through the bus station for some hot upskirt action. Wait… hot… Read More

  • Review: Olympus SP-570UZ

    Reviewing point-and-shoot cameras for you guys, no matter how complex, is like writing about light beer for a wine magazine. What can you say but that it goes down smooth and tastes great? Can you talk about the vat-grown malty flavor? Can you talk about the bottle and clever spelling of “lite?” Absolutely, but you and I both know we’re doing each other a disservice. Me… Read More

  • What's 5K anyway? RED Cameras resolution comparison chart


    So maybe you’re excited about Red’s sudden announcement of two new cameras earlier today (the 5K Epic and the 3K Scarlet) but you’re not really sure why. What are these “K”s everyone is talking about, and why would anyone care whether they had two, three, or a hundred? Well, Red’s handy chart above should clear things up for you. You can see how basically… Read More

  • Preorder your Canon Rebel XSi, get hugz from me


    The newest iteration of Canon’s Rebel X__ series is available for pre-order. I’m actually considering upgrading my Rebel XT to this model, the XSi/450D because the changes are actually significant (more useful pixels, live view, bigger LCD, etc). However, I’m not really interested in paying for a useless lens along with my camera, so I’m going to go with the body… Read More

  • World's tiniest (non-secret) HD camcorder


    I’m guessing the FBI has slightly more advanced versions of things like this, although the tiny Toshiba IK-HD1 is being promoted as being perfect for Homeland Security. Do those guys really need more cameras? It’s got a full-color 3CCD 1/3″ sensor, outputting at 1920×1080, though for some reason it’s 1080i. It’s bigger than a bouillon cube but smaller than… Read More

  • Pentax lets loose a new Optio point-and-shoot

    Today marks the arrival of yet another point-and-shoot from Pentax. The Optio V20, is like the sixth in the last few months, that features a 5x zoom lens, 8-megapixels and a ginormous 3-inch LCD. It appears to be geared towards portraits thanks to three key features: face recognition, smile capture and blink detection. I think you can decipher what each does and see its value in taking portraits. Read More

  • Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 gets dated

    It’s been slated for a March 28th launch in Japan, but still no word on when the US or even Europe can expect the gloriousness of shooting 1200fps. *sigh* Press Release Read More

  • PMA 2008: Leica M8 Upgrade Program

    Leica announced at PMA 2008 that it will be offering a new "perpetual upgrade program" to owners of its M8 digital camera. The program, as it stands now, will offer two handling upgrades to M8 owners — a new scratch resistant sapphire glass LCD screen cover; and a retuned, quieter shutter. "The shutter will be softer and feel more like an M6 with less lens vibration and… Read More

  • DIY: $1 image stabilizer

    $1 Image Stabilizer For Any Camera – Lose The Tripod – video powered by Metacafe I’m of the mindset that most DIY projects take a little more effort then I’d like to put in simply because I don’t have enough time, but the fact of the matter is is that I’m lazy. Read More

  • Fuji's newest flagship

    Coming out strong for Fuji in the prosumer tier is the FinePix S100FS. It’s pretty much the best of both worlds, in terms of point-and-shoot and DSLR hybrids go. I’m personally not a big fan of these hybrid types, but this one certainly has me interested. It packs an 11-megapixel CCD sensor with 14.3x manual zoom, RP III processor, 2.5-inch tiltable LCD and does some funky… Read More

  • Sony's 1080p camcorder HDR-UX20 looks chubby but awesome


    So it records 1080p video and 5.1 Dolby Digital to 8GB of internal memory, a media card of your choosing, or a DVD-R. It has a good Zeiss lens with optical image stabilization. It records to MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 with a variable bitrate and apparently assigns more data to faces by detecting them and altering the regional encoding for that area. So what’s the catch? Not really the price; $1000… Read More

  • CarCam Voyager preserves dashboard memories

    How many hilarious moments have you witnessed from behind the wheel of your car? Tens? Hundreds? Now imagine if you had a dash-mounted device that could record up to eight hours of video at a time and would preserve all these moments forever. Catch the physical comedy of the neighborhood invalid slowly traversing a crosswalk while the light turns green and everyone starts honking, laugh in… Read More

  • What I'm getting Matt Hickey for Xmas

    I think I’ve just found the perfect gift for Matt. I want to vomit every time I see one of his photos with that yellow tinge and I’m sure his colorblindness doesn’t help the situation any, but I think this will seal the deal. The Lumiquest Soft Screen is a cheapish diffuser for DSLRs with a pop-up flash. I need to get one for myself, too. It’s only £9.99, but you may… Read More
