It is weather proof and fade resistant, and uses simple one-touch buttons to operate the playback.

SCIRC t1 Remote Solar Powered Webcam

Posted in Digital Imaging,Digital Video,Outdoors,Webcams by Darrin Olson on December 28th, 2006

Solar Powered Webcam SCIRC t1There are probably a number of places that would be available to view via webcam if only it didn’t need a computer and power in close proximity. DigitalXTractions has a solution to this problem by offering a webcam that runs on solar power and sends it’s images directly to an internet site through wireless phone lines.

The webcam has a 1.3 megapixel sensor that can capture either video or still pictures and send them to a site to be viewed through a wireless GPRS/EDGE cellular modem.

The actual camera is 7x4x3 inches and weighs about 5 pounds so it might not be real easy to hide, if that is your plan. Also, there is a solar power option (additional cost) and a back up batter that can take up some additional room wherever you mount it.

The real cool part about this solar webcam …

Posted in Digital Imaging,Flash Memory,Webcams by Chetz on December 21st, 2006

Volvox USB Flash Drive With WebCamThe Korean company Sydnt has added a new flash drive to their Volvox product line. The Volvox USB webcam looks and acts like a USB flash drive, and comes in capacities of 512MB, 1Gb and 2GB.

There is one added feature that makes this flash drive unique; it also acts as a webcam that is able to take 1.3 Megapixel photos at a rate of 30 frames per second. It appears to have a flexible stiff cable that works as a USB extension and a stand so you can position your webcam however you would like.

There aren’t too many specs out about this camera flash drive, but it really looks like a pretty cool gadget. If it turns out to be something around $20 and I have $20 I will think about picking one up.

Mobile Phone Telescope

Posted in Accessories,Digital Imaging by Darrin Olson on December 20th, 2006

Mobile Phone Telescope for Sony EricssonThe ability to take pictures with your mobile phone was a great and popular advancement in mobile phone technology. The idea caught on like gangbusters and now you can hardly find a phone without a camera.

The progression of a telescoping lens for the mobile phone camera seems only natural, right? Well, maybe not. It does take away from having a slim design among other things, but this telescope that snaps on to Sony Ericsson mobile phones might be handy to have in your glove box.

The Mobile Phone Telescope from Brando adds 6x zoom to your camera. If your screen has good enough resolution you can manually focus the telescope lens while it is attached, but you may need to focus it before attaching to the camera which can be a little less than convenient.

For $19 USD, the package comes with …

Posted in Digital Cameras,Digital Imaging,Kids by Darrin Olson on December 10th, 2006

Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Camera My first digital camera as an adult was not as sophisticated as this Kid-Tough Digital Camera from Fisher-Price for ages 3 & up. I also think my first digital camera was even slightly bigger!

This is a real camera that takes real digital photos that can be transferred on to your PC, and has a 1.3″ color LCD to view the pictures immediately after you take them. When taking the pictures, the digital camera has a viewer for both eyes so the little kids don’t have to know how to wink to be able to focus in on there target. It also has big hand-holds on either side and big buttons to make it simple to use.

The designers have also taken into account that kids are going to drop this camera, a lot, so it is shockproof. It has a …

eStarling Picture Frame

The eStarling 7 inch LCD digital picture frame allows you to rotate through different digital pictures on the frame, but that certainly is not what makes it special.

This picture frame is also WiFi enabled and picks up photos without wires from email, a Flickr RSS stream and from an external media card. This means that once you have set it up, it stands alone and gets new photos sent to it automatically.

The Starling picture frame itself can check email by configuring a POP3 email account along with user name and password. After that, just send an email to the address with a JPEG or GIF file and the picture frame will catch it and add it to the rotation.

Kodak EasyShare V705 Dual Lens Camera

Kodak EasyShare V705 Dual Lens
If you are a snapshot photographer like me, I can’t think of a feature set in a camera better than the new Kodak V705. An upgrade from the similar Kodak V570, the V705 has added a few upgrades including a 7.1 megapixel CCD. The Kodak V705 is a dual lens camera with dual sensor as well.
One thing I was surprised at is that this camera doesn’t have a dock. It is a Kodak Easyshare, but if you want to hook it up to a printer, there are some adapters or a plug in you can use. It’s not that inconvenient, but I just expected it to have a dock I guess. They have set the standard for us non-professional photographers, I guess. This camera does have a great big wide screen and 22 different scene modes, which is just great when you …
