Sony DSC-TX200V digital camera is super slim

Thin is still in where digital cameras are concerned, and while we took a look at a couple of shooters from Panasonic yesterday, Sony too, did not want to lose out on the game, and the Japanese consumer electronics manufacturer has just added yet another model to the ultra-thin Cyber-shot T series – with the … Read more

Leica introduces V-Lux 3 digital camera

If you want to take the road less traveled where digital cameras are concerned, then you might not want to consider old names like Nikon, Canon and Panasonic, but rather, how about Leica? Leica is truly a class apart from the others, as it isn’t exactly the most popular brand that you see people carry … Read more

Digimo Camera Concept

As you can tell by the headline, this is a concept camera. The Digimo has three cool features, and even one would be enough to sell it on the existing camera market.
The first is that it can split in two. This comes in handy for situations where you need to take a picture of something remotely. You can even see a picture of what you are taking, as there is an LCD on both halves.
The second feature is that it can do 3D pictures. As you might know, 3D pictures are taken with two different camera lenses. When both halves are put together, this camera can get you the 3D pics that you want, if you are into that type of thing.
The third feature is that the Digimo is very modular. It has an extendable telescopic leg that can reach up to 50 centimeters, and you can see the ball and socket connectors that can stand one half of the camera at an angle.

Toshiba’s new ad breaks Guinness World Record

I remember seeing all sorts of examples of “bullet time” a year before The Matrix came out, and then I ended up seeing years of knock-offs. This commercial by Toshiba called “Time Sculpture” is “bullet time” with a machine gun.
Go ahead and watch the video after the jump, and you will see how impressive simple moves are when put together, and viewed in 360 degrees. I hope that you appreciate the work that went into it.
It took 200 cameras on a rig to get this shot, and the circular rig that surrounded the actors had to be taken out with a computer. It took about 110 hours worth of film with 20 terabytes of data, and it has broken the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest number of moving image cameras in a composite shot.

Sony HDR-PJ50 is both a camcorder and projector

When I saw this pic of the Sony HDR-PJ50, I was not surprised. After all, it isn’t the first time I have seen a projector on a camera. Nikon did this with the Coolpix S1000pj, and 3M did this with Shoot and Share camera as well.
The projector of the HDR-PJ50 is able to project an image of 60-inches on any flat surface, but you are probably going to have to be in a very dark room.
Then there is the usual feature of a 1920 x 1080 HD video and an unusual feature of a built-in 220GB hard drive. As you might have guessed, it is good for memory sticks or SD cards. It also has a built-in 220GB hard drive, so you can catch a lot of video.

Smile!- You’re Going to Jail

Some Police Departments in the U.S are going high-tech to help fight crime. They’re installing their patrol cars with automatic license plate readers or ALPR’s. These cameras read license plates of parked and moving cars — hundreds per minute and they can take pictures of the plates as they pass by. If a suspect license plate number is read, audible and visual alarms can alert the officer within milliseconds of the license plate’s capture.
The cameras can also take snapshots of the vehicle itself, along with the date, time, and location. Officials say that if conditions are right, the camera’s can even get a shot of the driver. I guess these things make for a pretty good case against the bad guy.

The Inflatable Portable Studio (IPS) for photographers

I’ve seen a portable photo studio before from ThinkGeek and Hammacher Schlemmer, but this has to be one of the biggest.

Welcome to the Inflatable Portable Studio (IPS), which is perfect those who need that extra bit of space for their photograph developing. It is made of a thin plastic that will block out any external light.

This portable studio comes in two sizes of 12 x 7 x 10 feet or 20 x 12 x 10 feet, and you will need a giant fan or blower thing to inflate it.
