Lumix DMC-FS3

The Lumix DMC-FS3 is the obligatory runt of Panasonic's new compact 'FS' camera litter. It sports an 8.1-megapixel sensor and 3x optical zoom (as opposed to the Lumix DMC-FS5/DMC-FS20's 10.1-megapixel sensor and 4x optical zoom). While it doesn't qui...

CrazyTalk5 Pro

CrazyTalk5 Pro is the latest and arguably greatest version of Reallusion's quirky 'face puppet' animation studio. If you've never heard of CrazyTalk before, it basically lets you create a talking three-dimensional avatar from any photo or image (BMP ...

Sony Xacti VPC-CA65 (EXW)

Midway through last year, we reviewed Sanyo's Xacti VPC-CA6; a water-resistant flash memory-based camcorder that seemed to be tailor-made for the encroaching holidays. While it performed adequately for a standard-definition camera, the image quality ...

DMW-MCFS5 marine case

The majority of consumer-level underwater cameras are, to use the technical term, a bit rubbish. Because they are 'niche' products with a limited user base, most vendors are hesitant to invest in production costs, resulting in cheap models with rudim...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SF20

In recent years, it has become customary for camera manufacturers to release a tiered range of models at barely distinguishable prices; presumably in an attempt to cover every shopper's budget. For proof, look no further than the Lumix DMC-FS20, a pr...

Panasonic DMC-FS5

It doesn't take a genius to know what makes a good compact camera. Along with decent battery life and a slim, lightweight design, the primary ingredient is the ability to take great looking photos - and here's the important bit - with a minimum of fu...

New Panasonic camcorder range - 2008

Panasonic has planned an all-out assault on the home camcorder markets, with no fewer than nine new models due to hit stores in 2008. Check out the following slideshow for all the latest tech info, including never-before-seen modes and features.

Panasonic SDR-SW20

As we enter the simmering heart of summer (it says here), most camcorder enthusiasts would rather be swimming in the water than shooting on land. On the one hand, beach and poolside frolics offer a perfect opportunity for memorable home movies, but o...

Panasonic HDC-SD9

When it comes to releasing new hardware, Panasonic certainly isn't a company to rest on its laurels. Early in 2007 it unveiled the world's first high-definition SD/SDHC camcorder (the HDC-SD1); a model that was superseded less than six months later b...

Acer Aspire 2920-302G25Mn

The Aspire 2920-302G25Mn is the first notebook in Acer's flagship 'Gemstone' range to offer truly ultraportable specifications. With similar specs and a near-identical appearance, it kind of resembles an Aspire 5920G which has been left to shrink in ...

Lost Odyssey

Lost Odyssey is the latest RPG epic from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi; and one of the few games of its ilk for the Xbox 360. For a glimpse at Lost Odyssey's majestic vistas and compelling characters, feast your eyes on the following slide...

Sony DVDirect VRD-MC5

The DVDirect VRD-MC5 is primarily targeted at camcorder owners who want to make DVDs of their footage without using a PC. Perhaps you find computer technology to be scary and unknowable, or maybe you require an easy way to burn discs while on the roa...

Toon Boom Storyboard Pro

Nine times out of 10, the difference between a good film and a great film will come down to the pre-production phase. Meticulous preparation is the key to a successful shoot, with a detailed storyboard one of the most essential ingredients. To this e...

Sony PMW-EX1

The Sony PMW-EX1 is the world's first professional-level camcorder to use flash memory based ExpressCard media. As such, it marks an interesting new direction for the digital video industry, which until now, has traditionally stuck to tape. Sporting ...

Turok - an epic and futuristic, first-person shooter

The combination of carnivorous dinosaurs and guns - lots of guns - is clearly a match made in videogame heaven. Turok, a next-gen 're-imagining' of the popular Nintendo 64 shooter, provides all the proof you'll ever need. The game is basically an exc...

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.
