In Pictures: 11 new gadgets for fantastic photos

Picture taking, whether you use a smartphone or digital camera, doesn't have to be boring. Here are some cameras and peripherals that can help you create truly marvelous photos.

Swivl For the ultimate in corporate selfies, check out the Swivl: It uses an electronic marker (which can be held or worn around your neck) and a swiveling iPhone mount to act as a robotic cameraman.

The Swivl base follows the marker as you move, keeping it (and you) in the video frame. The base will work up to 33 feet from the marker and swivels 360 degrees around and 30 degrees vertically. A button on the marker lets you start and stop the video.

An iOS app uses a wireless connection to capture sound from a microphone in the marker and can upload your videos to YouTube, Ustream, GoToMeeting or Webex.

A version for iPads and Android devices should ship in early 2014.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
