Posted in CES 2008,Digital Cameras,Norcent by Darrin Olson on January 5th, 2008

Norcent DCS-1050 10 megapixel digital cameraNorcent has a new 10 megapixel point and shoot camera debuting at CES this year as part of their new 50 series line up of shooters. The new Norcent DCS-1050 doesn’t have new industry shattering technology but does load some nice features and the ability to easily shoot photos at a resolution of up to 3648 x 2736 for a very reasonable $179.99.

The DCS-1050 has some facial recognition and anti-shake technologies which make taking decent looking photos relatively easy. It also has a nice-sized 3-inch TFT-panel color LCD and 4X digital zoom complimented by a 3x optical zoom. The camera can use MMC or SD cards and will need them since it only holds 16MB of internal, but once you have some space to spare the camera will also allow you to record voice to WAV files and record video to MPEG-4 in multiple choices of resolutions including 640 x 480, 320 x 240, or 160 x 120. Connection are available through either a common USB cable or through AV jacks on the camera.

It comes with a choice of 7 mount types for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax K, and Minolta cameras.

RIDATA Introduces SMART Compact Flash Cards

Compact flash cards are slowly becoming a thing of the past, being replaced by SD cards, but there are still alot of cameras that rely on the older format. So RIDATA is looking out for you. They just introduced what they call the SMART compact flash card.

They are SMART because the have a new internal data monitoring system that ensures you never experience any data loss. It’s nice to have alot of storage in your camera, but not a pleasant feeling when you lose an important file. The cards also have embedded error correction code (ECC) which I believe is a fancy way of saying that it has “back up power Captain”, should something truly go wrong.

Finger-sized Canon Snap camera concept

Posted in Canon,Concepts,Digital Cameras by Reuben Drake on October 22nd, 2007

Canon Snap concept cameraThis concept design by David Münscher is what Yanko Design describes as a “Stalker’s Dream” and consists of a tiny camera small enough to be worn around one finger and take pictures with “high quality optics”. The spy-like camera has a single button to aim and snap photos requiring on a couple of fingers and creating a very discrete shooter. It’s hard to say if something this small could become a reality in the near future while still providing “high quality” shots, but like most of the concepts we just like it because it looks cool. If they actually get it to work, why that’s just a bonus!
