A Guide To The Latest News From The Camera World

Aug 31, 2008
The IFA is the world show for consumer gadgets and there have been some mouth watering unveilings taking place in Berlin for IFA 2008. Although this year has been set to be dominated by the HDTV crowd as the technology has become mainstream, there are some other areas of interest such as audio and digital camera technology. This article provides objective coverage of the latest technological advances in the world of digital cameras.

Big news dominating the IFA is the buzz that Microsoft and Nikon have signed a patent cross-licensing agreement. This will help the development of current and future product lines by sharing technology to make products more compatible. The two giants have had a long standing relationship and this agreement will allow them innovate openly creating new features for customers. It is set to improve the Nikon range of digital cameras making them even more compatible with editing software.

Another leader in digital cameras is Samsung who have recently announced their new line of digital LCD photo frames. There are four different models just launched and will be available from September from 120-200 dollars, and if you are saying, that is one expensive photo frame then wait to hear some of the features.

They have a touch screen feature which allows you to browse photos, WiFi connectivity and Samsungs InfoLink fature which allows you to get over 400 channels of news, sports and financial info. They can also be used as a second monitor for your computer so they are not just to use with digital cameras.

If you need to print on the go then Canon has launched the ultimate companion to your latest digital camera. The Selphy printer Duo includes the ES3 and Es30 which are the latest models replacing the ES2 and ES20 respectively. They are the ultimate in portable printer practicalities with sport carrying handles and compact, sleek design. Other improved features are the LCD screens and the new image effects which have been added to the print options.

As a companion to your protable printer Cannon have announced the launch of the digital camera EOS 50D DSLR which will not generally be compatible because if you spend this much on a camera you might be wanting better print quality than either of the Selphy Duo have to offer.

It comes in at around 1500GBP however you get what you pay for with 6.3 frames per second shooting speed in bursts of up to 90 jpegs, ISO levels of 3200 that are expandable to an ultra sensitive 12,800 and an improved self cleaning sensor unit, however the price tag pushes it toward the professional.
