Minolta launches Dimage V digital camera

A lens that goes around corners? Yes that's right! Minolta's new digital camera, Dimage V, features a detachable lens with a 1m extension cable -- a feature that the company thinks will be popular with industrial users trying to get pics of hard to get to areas.

The lens, a 2.7x zoom (4.8mm to 13.0mm) is equal to a 35mm camera's 34mm-92mm lens. The lens also has macro capabilities -- it can "fill the frame with a credit card-sized object" Minolta says. And aside from being detachable, it can be rotated on the camera.

The Dimage V produces images 640 x 480 pixels, and stores them on a 4MB SSFDC memory card included with the camera. A 1.8in LCD monitor allows you to view photos you have taken, individually or in groups of nine.

The Dimage V is priced at $1199 RRP and falls into the lower end of Minolta's digital camera range.

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.
