Samsung i85 Digital Camera / Media Player

Posted in Digital Cameras,Media Players,Samsung by Chris Weber on July 30th, 2007

Samsung i85 Digital Camer and media playerSamsung has launched the i85 digital camera marking the 3rd model they’ve put out that not only lets you view the photos you’ve taken but can play back music and video media. The Samsung i85 is an 8 megapixel shooter with a large 3″ LCD screen to view a variety of media files including WAV, MP3, MPEG, AVI, MOV, WMV and ASF, however you can’t transfer these files directly and play them.

You’ll need to do a little conversion using some included software before they’ll actually play on the camera. The screen to watch the media stays fixed unlike the i85′s predecessor, and you can listen to your media through built-in stereo speakers or a standard headphone jack.

The physical size of this camera is something to take note of as well. At only .8″ thick it packs in a 5x …

Posted in Digital Cameras,Mobile Phones,Rumors,Samsung by Chetz on July 27th, 2007

Samsung SGH-G800 camera phoneSome leaked photos and information was picked up today about the upcoming Samsung SGH-G800 camera phone. The G800 looks to be 5 megapixel point and shoot camera with a tri-band GSM/EDGE phone tacked on its back (depending on how you look at it) which supports 3G HSDPA.

If the rumors are accurate it will support Bluetooth, a USB 2.0 connection and has a microSD expansion slot. The camera has a 3x optical zoom and adds on one of those fancy Xenon flashes. The SGH-G800 will also have a 2.4″ QVGA display with dimensions of no more than 4 inches long which very compact for a 5 megapixel shooter or a phone, much less both of them combined.

Kodak EasyShare C513 digital cameraToday Kodak announced its first Easyshare camera that utilizes the companies new KAC-05011 CMOS image sensor. The Easyshare C513 is a point-and-shoot model targeting the entry-level camera buyer. What really makes this camera stand out aside from the new, higher quality CMOS sensor is the price tag.

Digital cameras with CMOS sensors have traditionally been a little cheaper than those with CCD as they cost a little less to make but also didn’t have the image quality you would find with a CCD. This new CMOS image sensor from Kodak promises to provide an affordable digital camera without skimping on the picture quality or the functionality of the actual camera.

The C513 also has 3x optical zoom, digital stabilization, can capture …

Kodak EasyShare Z1275 12 Megapixel Shooter

Posted in Digital Cameras,Kodak by Chris Weber on June 12th, 2007

Kodak EasyShare Z1275 digital camera with 12 megapixelsKodak pushes on the megapixel race a little further with a new 12, yes, 12 megapixel digital camera called the EasyShare Z1275.

In addition to the mega-megapixel’s, this camera has 5x Schneider-Kreuznach Variogo optical zoom, a 2.5 inch LCD viewer and saves images to either a Memory Stick Duo or SD card. You may also notice the little “HD” label on the front, which is indicative of the MPEG4 video recording this camera can do at a resolution of 1280 x 720.

You can get your hands on this 12 megapixel shooter for a mere $249, but in order to keep that low price with all those megapixels Kodak had to forfeit some other somewhat common features like any kind of viewfinder other than the LCD screen. You’ll have to keep a steady hand since there is no type of image stabilization. …

Posted in Digital Cameras,Fujifilm by Chris Weber on May 29th, 2007

Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd digital cameraFujifilm has recently released the FinePix Z5fd, their latest point and shoot digital camera featuring a “blog mode” which is supposed to make the process of taking photos and getting them onto your website faster and easier.

When we first heard rumors of this camera here at the Brick we had grand expectations of some camera with Wi-Fi and some type of email or automatic http posting capabilities. Our imagination of a blogging camera may have been a little out of hand, but we honestly did expect a little more than what Fujifilm released.

The Blog Mode on the FinePix Z5fd consists of a couple of features. The first allows the user to take the full 6 megapixel resolution photos and with the single touch of a button save a lower resolution (640×480) version of the same image. This resolution is still a little big …

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 12.2 Megapixel CameraWe can always count on the manufacturers of digital cameras to continually come out with products that have a higher pixel count. Today Panasonic kicked it up a notch by announcing the Lumix DMC-FX100 12.2 megapixel point and shoot camera featuring a wider angle shot than most point and shoots available today.

The new Lumix digital camera has a 3.6x zoom that spans the equivalent of 28mm to 100mm with the wider angle pictures. The camera also features something Panasonic called “Extra Optical Zoom” which extends the range to around 196mm, but the catch is that pictures taken at this zoom level are only 3 megapixels, and not the full 12.2 that the camera is capable of with the standard shots.

Panasonic made a point to remind consumers that the zoom available with this new camera is not a digital-zoom feature. Optical zoom is …
