Canon fires another PowerShot

Canon is continuing to expand its digital camera range with the launch of the PowerShot A50. Designed for the business and home market, the camera has a range of features including a 2.5X zoom lens, which is equivalent to a 28-70mm lens in 35mm format.

The latest small and lightweight offering fits easily into a shirt pocket, measures 103 x 68 x 37mm (w x h x d) and weighs in at 260grams. High resolution images of 1280 x 960 pixels can be created, as well as an optional 640 x 480 resolution for on-screen applications such as Web sites and CD-ROMs.

Images are stored on CompactFlash cards, which can hold up to 23 images on an 8MB capacity card when captured using "large/fine" mode, and up to 43 images when captured in "large/normal" mode. Larger capacity cards including 15MB, 30MB and 48MB are also available.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
