Nikon D200

Powerful and wonderfully designed, Nikon's new D200 fills a gaping hole in the company's lineup of digital SLR cameras.

ACDSee 8 Photo Manager

ACDSee 8 Photo Manager builds on the powerful batch-processing functions and adequate image editing tools of version 7.0 and adds others. In fact, two things clearly stood out in the shipping version: its faster interface and its pumped-up photo-arch...

Casio Exilim EX-Z55

The tiny Casio Exilim EX-Z55 is immediately attractive. About the size of a deck of cards, it's easy to pack along for any occasion. Its brushed-silver metal body and nicely machined control buttons give it a solid feel in the hand and support smooth...

Nikon D50

Nikon's 6.1-megapixel D50 digital SLR model fits nicely into the latest digital camera trend: making interchangeable-lens photography accessible to shooters who don't have deep pockets.

Nikon Coolpix 8800

The Coolpix 8800 combines powerful (8-megapixel) imaging resolution and a long (10X) optical zoom. An update of the Coolpix 8700 (which has an 8X zoom), the 8800 looks and operates much like its predecessor, with the same bulky, black body and a lens...

Sony Cyber-shot DSCW1

Were it not for its LCD, the Sony DSCW1 might look like just another one of the many small, brick-shaped digital cameras on store shelves. But the monster 2.5" screen on the back of the W1 clearly sets this camera apart. Composing your shots on a scr...

Sony Cyber-shot DSCP150

Sony's DSCP150 has a powerful seven megapixel CCD. The high resolution may not give you better pictures if you usually print 5" x 7" or 4" x 6" prints, but it's a boon for making 8" x 10" or larger prints. The main drawback to 7 megapixel images is t...

M:robe tries to do too much

Olympus's M:robe 500i is the first new generation player we've seen to add a digital camera to the mix. We give Olympus credit for a great concept, but it's a hat trick the company does not quite pull off. The device plays WMA and MP3 music files, di...

4Mp beginners’ camera: EasyShare CX7430

If simplicity is a virtue when it comes to digital cameras, then Kodak’s EasyShare CX7430 out-classes most of its competition. Kodak gave this camera just the few controls needed for basic snapshot photography, and added text-based help prompts for b...

Coolpix 3100 digital camera

Nikons have a reputation of being cameras for the hard-core photographer, but the company’s new Coolpix models are targeted at the neophyte. I looked at a pre-production version of the $849 Coolpix 3100, a small, light and nicely designed 3.2-megapix...

Olympus unveils true digital SLR camera

Olympus Optical Co. Ltd. is pushing to become a player in the professional photography market, preparing to offer a 5-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera with the first pure digital SLR and a ready-made line of lenses.

Business card management software

Corex’s CardScan has always been invaluable software, able to turn piles of business cards into useful data easily accessed via a searchable on-screen card file (or any of several pop­-ular contact managers). With CardScan Version 6.0.4, Corex addres...

CardScan Software Version 6.0.4

Corex’s CardScan has always been invaluable software, able to turn piles of business cards into useful data easily accessed via a searchable on-screen card file (or any of several popular contact managers). With CardScan Version 6.0.4 ($99 upgrade; $...

Digital SLR prices fall within reach

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
