Smile Recognition Camera

by Mark R

I have reported on several digital cameras in the past, and I was always fascinated by “face recognition software”, which is somehow able to pluck faces out of any pictures and make them clearer. I don’t know how a computer could even recognize a face, much clear it up. To make things even more complicated, Sony has developed a camera that has “smile recognition software”. Once again, I have no …

Tolne camera ships with filter sets for variety

by Edwin


Takara Tomy now targets ladies in their 20s with these colorful and chic 35mm plastic cameras better known as “Tolne”.

Each $35 purchase comes with filter sets that enable you to throw in some …

It’s also interesting to see that not all new software …

Now wouldn’t it be great if you had a camera that you could just chuck into your pocket and forget about? One you could drag out while snowboarding or snorkelling without having to wonder …

by James


Looking more like a ray gun than a digital camcorder, the Sanyo Xacti DMX-HD1000 can claim the mantel of the world’s smallest 1080p HiDef camcorder. With its pistol grip and large 10x lens (which translates to focal length of 38 – 380mm), the HD1000 can shoot up to nearly an hour and a half on an 8GB high capacity SD card in full 1080p. This is thanks to the MPEG-4 …
