Pentax's entry-level K-x DSLR receives glowing review

Pentax's entry-level K-x DSLR receives glowing review


Pentax's K-x has been shipping in various corners of the globe (in various hues) for a hot minute now, but at long last the entry-level DSLR has found itself on the test bench. The good folks over at Tech Radar were able to take the $650 shooter for a spin, and with few exceptions, they absolutely adored it. Image quality was deemed fantastic, and without qualification, that's easily the most important aspect of a camera. Critics also appreciated the build quality, rear LCD and ergonomics, though they did note that the 720p movie mode was 'hit and miss.' They found it to be a good fit for novices and amateurs, and while they did feel that it was somewhat less comfortable to wield than Nikon's D5000, they still maintained that it'll be a great bargain when the street price falls just a bit.

Mamiya's DM22 is a medium format digital camera for the Walmart type at sub-$10k pricepoint

Mamiya's DM22 is a medium format digital camera for the Walmart type at sub-$10k pricepoint




It can't be easy being the cost-cutter in a game as insanely expensive as digital medium format cameras, but after teaming up with Phase One for a $5990 medium format shooter (without lens), Mamiya is taking its own crack at the market with the $9,995 DM22. It comes with a Mamiya 80mm f/2.8 D Series lens, has a 22 megapixel sensor and can pump images straight out over FireWire if you think your RAW files are too good for a lowly CompactFlash card. It's also being introduced with a $14,990 sibling, the DM28, which has a 28 megapixel sensor and handles higher ISO shots.

Canon PowerShot G11 review roundup

Canon PowerShot G11 review roundup


We had an all too brief hands-on with Canon's PowerShot G11 way back in August, but the first real flood of reviews has only just recently started, and now seemed like as good a time as any to get you caught up on some of them. As you might expect, one of the real stand-out features is that swiveling LCD, which is not only good in and of itself, but 'one of the best of its type' according to What Digital Camera. Other reviewers like Wired UK and CNET UK also found that G11 delivered some noticeably better results than the previous G10, with it aided especially by the surprising but welcome shift from the old 14.7-megapixel sensor to a new 10-megapixel one that offers an improved dynamic range and better performance at high ISO settings, among other advantages. On the downside, the camera is somewhat bulky, and PhotographyBlog says it fails to live up to Canon's claims of it being the 'ultimate compact,' especially when you consider some of the similarly-sized (but admittedly pricier) Micro Four Thirds offerings available.

Pepsi Apologizes For iPhone App That Gets Girls

US soft drink giant PepsiCo has apologized for a free iPhone application crafted to help men seduce women and keep records of conquests but the program remained available on Tuesday.

Pepsi's "AMP Up Before You Score" iPhone application categorizes women into 24 types and then uses the Apple smartphone's Internet capabilities to link users to information about them and what they like.

AMP is an energy drink made by PepsiCo.

"Let's say you meet a girl who is way into being green and you need a vegan restaurant stat; we've got you covered," a voice-over maintained on Tuesday in an online Pepsi video about the AMP at YouTube.

"If you are anticipating a successful night, the Before You Score app gives you up to the minute information, feeds, lines and much more to help you amp up and talk to 24 different types of ladies."

Types of women listed in the application include punk rocker, bookworm, aspiring actress, artist, and sorority girl.

Apple Kills Jailbreaking in New iPhone 3GS

Apple's strikes again, sending jailbreakers on their heels

Apple plays what its CEO Steve Jobs once likened to a game of "cat and mouse" with iPhone unlockers and jailbreakers. Jailbreakers, like the iPhone Dev Team, try to release the iPhone from being limited to the official iTunes app store and other firmware restrictions, while unlockers, such as George Hotz, use the jailbreaks and other techniques to unlock the phone, allowing it to run on any hardware-supported network.

Usually the unlockers/jailbreakers seize the day, but occasionally Apple will win a round. Apple has tried many approaches -- everything from "bricking" unlocked iPhones to denying jailbroken iPhones access to the iTunes store -- to halt the spread of unlocking in the U.S. and force people to use AT&T, despite the hardware being capable of working on other carriers such as T-Mobile.

Now, Apple has managed to gain an upper hand over the persistent hackers according to iClarified, thanks to the release of a new bootrom, iBoot-359.3.2. The phone firmware, which shipped on new iPhone 3GSs starting this week, closes previously used doors to exploits.

No Refunds on iPhone Apps - iPhone Users Complain

There's some interesting developments concerning Apple's App Store

Competitor after competitor have launched their own app stores, but none have been able to come close to matching Apple's industry-leading iTunes App Store, which serves the company's popular iPhone smartphone. The App Store has suffered a bit in the past from controversy, though, with many developers unhappy with Apple's inconsistent approach to application acceptance.

Now, with Apple trying to put that controversy in rear view, a new one is brewing. Recently, there has been a growing user outcry, particularly in the influential business user segment, over Apple's no-refunds policy concerning App Store downloads.

With some apps like GPS applications or business applications coming in at $30, $50, or even more, users are becoming furious when these pricey apps occasionally fail or prove to be bug prone. With no returns, these users are out of luck, with Apple leaving them no recourse. Apple's policy explicitly states -- refunds will only be offered if the download fails.

These complaints have been given a prominent voice by a recent piece from Eric A. Taub of The New York Times. Mr. Taub writes, "None of this may matter if the most expensive app you’ve downloaded is a 99-cent virtual beer glass. Once the novelty wears off, most people can live with the financial loss. But asking people to spend $100 on an app that they haven’t had the opportunity to try and can’t return may limit its popularity. Even if you don’t return a piece of consumer hardware you purchased, you can always try to sell it to someone else. But an unwanted app remains yours forever."

Aigo AHD-Z10 and AHD-S1 full HD camcorders


Aigo has unveiled a couple of full HD camcorders in the form of the AHD-Z10 and the AHD-S1, where both models are tipped to hit the market before the year is over without breaking the $500 price point. Both models will boast the ability to record 1080p videos in H.264 encoding, featuring a 10-megapixel sensor, a 3' touchscreen LCD display, HDMI input and optical zoom lens. Sounds like quite the device to get for those on a tight budget who doesn't really take brand names into consideration, eh?

Sony Cybershot TX1 Out-of-the-Box

Sony Cybershot TX1 Out-of-the-Box

Sony sent in a Cybershot TX1 to review. As the camera features a 3.0″ touch-screen, the only physical controls (zoom, preview, and the on-off buttons) are situated on the top of the device. Here’s what comes with the TX1:


Sony-Cybershot-TX1-2



  • Instruction manuals in 4 different languages (region-dependent)

  • Warranty card

  • Software CD

  • Catalog of Cybershot TX1 accessories

  • USB / TV-out cable

  • NP-BD1 battery in a plastic case

  • Changing dock and power cord

  • Wrist strap (already attached to camera

  • Paint pen (attaches to wrist strap, used to operate touch-screen


Sony-Cybershot-TX1


At first glance, that seems like a lot. Yet Sony could’ve done a little better with the bundle, including a Memory Stick and a basic camera case at the very least. I totally understand Sony wants customers to spend more on accessories (the included catalog makes this marketing push very obvious). But what’s wrong with whetting the new owner’s appetite right away? A 1GB memory stick provides enough capacity for decent use, while a cheap camera case would provide basic protection for the TX1’s stylish (and fingerprint-vulnerable) exterior?


In any case, watch out for updates as we put this camera through its paces. If you’re eager to own a Sony Cybershot TX1, B & H is selling this baby for $380. Available range from feminine pink to the understated gray.

Nikon's D3S officially announced, previewed extensively

One day after having been leaked to the wilds and then officially announced, Nikon has opened the floodgates on the upcoming D3S, an upgrade to last year's D3 that was oh so warmly received. Early indications are the D3S is just as hot, adding a 720p24 video mode to the mix and allowing use of the camera's full aperture and ISO range while recording. Important, that, because this camera offers a ludicrously high maximum ISO value of 102,400 -- approaching night vision territory. That's thanks to a new 12.1 megapixel sensor, which is paired with a vibration mechanism to reduce dust. How well does the sensor perform? Nobody is apparently allowed to show us just yet, but tell us they have, with words like 'simply incredible' and 'fantastic feat' used to describe its low-light shooting. Seems we'll have to wait a bit longer for full reviews, but these previews will surely whet your appetite. Oh, and the cost? A mere $5,199.95.

Flip MinoHD goes premium, we go hands-on

Flip MinoHD goes premium, we go hands-on


Flip Video just launched a new 'premium' take on the MinoHD -- it's fundamentally the same as the existing MinoHD, but with 8GB of storage, a bigger two-inch screen and an HDMI port, all wrapped up in either a sleek aluminum shell or a personalized design from the Flip website. The 8GB of flash means the MinoHD can now record up to two hours of 720p video, and while there's still no image stabilizer, it's not like that's stopped anyone from loving the MinoHD before. There's also a new version of the FlipShare software, which features an automatic Magic Movie mode that'll trim and edit before shooting your video to Facebook, YouTube and MySpace. We're sure the kids will love it, but we'd rather do things the old-fashioned way. The new premium model will sell for $229, while the original MinoHD remains on sale for $199 and the old-school Mino hangs back at $149. After some time playing around with one, we'd say you're well-justified in dropping the extra $30 here -- the newer case and screen are quite nice, and HDMI-out is nothing to sneeze at. It's still the same MinoHD as far as image quality goes, however, so don't walk into this one expecting any surprises -- and no fancy al-yoo-min-ium case will quell the need for a proper stabilizer in these things. Video after the break!

Fuji Instax Mini 7 Proves Film is Still Best – For Instant

Fuji Instax Mini 7 Proves Film is Still Best – For Instant

instax7


There are two ways to get instant photos from your camera: using either an instant film camera or a digicam with a built-in printer. However, there is only one way to get good instant photos, and that is still film.


Without testing it, we’re not sure just how good the pictures are from Fujifilm’s new Instax Mini 7. One thing we do know is that, unless somebody has seriously messed something up (replacing the lens with an piece of beer-bottle, for example), the Mini 7 will embarrass the truly awful digital Pogo from previous instant title-holder Polaroid.


The Mini 7 will remain a novelty, though, as the ISO 800, 1.8 x 2.4-inch film costs $20 for a 10-pack. When shooting, you can pick from four exposure settings (the shutter speed remains at 1/60 sec). Focus is fixed, but when things get really dark there’s a built-in flash. The camera costs $90 and is cute enough to be given as a gift. And if experience is anything to go by, it is a gift that will be used precisely ten times, until the first roll of film runs out and it is consigned, with all the other film cameras, to the junk-drawer.

Memorex MyVideo pocket camcorders are content to fit the mold

Memorex MyVideo pocket camcorders are content to fit the mold



Memorex has never exactly been one to go out on a limb with its consumer electronics, and it looks like that's especially true of its new MyVideo pocket camcorders, which the company itself doesn't even bother to go into much detail about in its press release -- other than that they'll let you 'zoom in on life's moments before they zoom out,' of course. A bit more digging turns up some expectedly standard specs, however, including 4GB of memory and an HDMI port on the MyVideo HD model and 2GB and no HDMI on the MyVideo VGA, along with a two-inch screen and the usual integrated USB connector on each. Then again, they do just cost $99.99 and $129.99, and seem like a prime candidate for discounts in the run up to the holiday season.

Gadgetell Review: DXG-Riviera HD camcorder

Gadgetell Review: DXG-Riviera HD camcorder

Gadgetell Review: DXG-Riviera HD camcorder


What is it?


The DXG-Riviera HD is from DXG’s Luxe collection of camcorders.' It shoots 720p video onto SD cards and has a MSRP of $149.99.' There are two patterns available: the Riviera is a quilted pattern, the Soho is in an argyle pattern.



What’s in the box?



  • DXG camcorder

  • Carrying case

  • SD Card

  • HDMI cable

  • A/V cables

  • 4 AAA batteries

  • Editing software: ArcSoft TotalMedia, Mr. Photo, VideoWorks



The Good


The DXG package comes with a lot of accessories including a HDMI cable.' Sony didn’t even give you a HDMI cable with its original PS3.' The camcorder is lightweight and easy to operate.' You wouldn’t need to read the manual unless you wanted to.'



Setting up the camera requires 4 AAA batteries and a SD card, both are included.' The design is unique with its quilted pattern in the plastic shell of the LCD.' While DXG went with a fashion-accessory design, that design does not get in the way of function.'



Video quality in sunlight was fair.' In still camera mode, pictures were relatively clear.



The Bad


There is a still camera mode, but there is a bit of lag when you shoot still pictures.' Click the camera button and you’ll likely capture the next second.' The lag is reminiscent of the iPhone 3G’s camera.' The screen on the device is not fantastic, but a user would probably want to view the HD video on a big screen.'



Unfortunately, the video quality on this device was not up to par with other pocket camcorders.' Under low light, video appeared scratchy.' There is noticeable wobble of the video when panning - it’s as if you are viewing a reflection of a video in water.' Details were muddy.' The microphone pick up is poor.' Pointing the camera at a subject, you were more likely to hear the camera operator breathe than hear the subject.'



The Crux



At $149.99, the DXG Luxe just does not compare well to competitors at this point.' You will probably want to skip it in favor of a Kodak or Flip instead.'

Canon held off about as long as it could, but it finally caved to the pressures of adding a pressure-sensitive screen to one of its Digital ELPHs. The SD980 IS goes down as the first-ever touchscreen PowerShot, offering a better-than-average set of specifications, a few color options, an attractive size and a 720p movie mode that helps to set it apart from some of its VGA-quality contemporaries. We took the cam for a quick spin just to see how Canon's adaptation of the touchscreen felt in real-world use, and we've posted up our impressions -- along with a few sample galleries and a raw 720p video clip -- just beyond the break.
