Canon HV20

Compared to Panasonic's sleek [[Prodid:3346]], the Canon HV20 HD camcorder looks a bit ungainly, mostly because of the large tape mechanism grafted on to one side. It records 1920 x 1080-pixel HDV-formatted high definition footage to Mini DV tapes, w...

New video editors need beefy PCs to edit HD

Video editing applications are starting to accept high-definition footage. But you may need to crank your PC up a notch: The shipping versions of Corel's Ulead VideoStudio 11 Plus and Pinnacle Systems' Studio 11 Ultimate require serious computing hor...

Adobe Lightroom

My biggest question about Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe's new AU$345 photo management and processing application designed for professional photographers, was: Why do I need this instead of some other Adobe application?

Panasonic HDC-SD1

The Panasonic HDC-SD1 is a camcorder that can capture outstanding footage, but you can't edit the video just yet.

Pinnacle Studio Plus 10

The launch of a new version of Pinnacle Studio is often followed by reports of program instability and crashes that take a hefty software update to sort out, and the latest version looks to be no different.

Look who's overclocking PCs -- Dell!

Dell's previous attempts to build a fancy gaming system that competes with those from the likes of Alienware, Voodoo Computer, and Falcon Northwest have been pretty tame. But its upcoming XPS Renegade 600 uses an Intel Pentium Extreme Edition Dual-Co...

Konica Minolta Dynax 5D

At this price including an 18mm-to-70mm lens, the Dynax 5D competes with other consumer digital single-lens reflex models such as Nikon's D50, Canon's EOS 350D and Olympus's EVolt E-300.

Fujifilm FinePix S9500

The Fujifilm FinePix S9500 has some of the best attributes of a single-lens reflex model in an all-in-one body, but it's still a large, bulky camera that doesn't cost much less than a true SLR. It has a fixed 28mm-to-300mm lens--quite long for a fixe...

HP iPAQ Rx3715

The HP iPAQ Rx3715 Mobile Media Companion is loaded with so many features that it could replace some of your other electronic devices in a pinch. It's expensive, however, and its integrated 1.2 megapixel digital camera isn't good for much.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V3

There are a few features that would make some people choose the Sony Cyber-shot DSCV3 over the similar Canon PowerShot G6. In particular, the DSCV3 has a 2.5" LCD on the back (the G6's measures 2"), and it has the same useful low-light modes that Son...

Canon PowerShot S60

If your number one priority for a digital camera is that it doesn't pull your breast pocket down to belly button level, you'll want to skip the Canon PowerShot S60. Although it has the typical oblong shape of a point-and-shoot and weighs less than it...

HP digicam gives photography hints

Hewlett-Packard Co.'s newest digicam does more than shoot the picture; it can evaluate your picture-taking performance and provides constructive tips for how you might improve on subsequent shots.

Samsung introduces trio of digicams

Samsung Electronics is showing three new digital cameras in Las Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show, including two inexpensive, high-megapixel models and one bundled with a program that lets you create a custom animated avatar to display on the ca...

Art made easy: PAINTER 8

Many feats of human dexterity don’t translate to a computer environment: shaking someone’s hand, playing a guitar, performing open-heart surgery. But CorelPAINTER 8 makes the delicate art of painting on a digital canvas not just possible but fun.

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.
