Easy snapping under $200

IXLA has had great success in the US and should make headway here, too, with its new software/camera bundle - IXLA Photo Easy Deluxe, which includes the Digital SuperPro 640 camera and a suite of photo editing tools for the low price of $199. The software, IXLA Photo Easy, also retails alone at $89.95, and includes six integrated programs ranging in function from photo editing, viewing and cataloguing, to publishing.

Do a few sums and you'll see that the cost of the camera works out to be $110. For that, you get a simple camera offering resolutions of up to 640 x 480, 24-bit colour, and a CMOS sensor (which costs about a third as much to produce as the CCD sensors used in more expensive digital cameras).

The Digital SuperPro 640 runs on four AA batteries and includes a built-in flash and a 10-second timer. It uses either USB or parallel connections (cables for both are included in the package). The camera is focus-free from 1m to infinity, with a focal length of 6mm, and an F4.0 aperture. A 2MB flash memory card is included which, according to ixla, will hold up to 30 images.

It doesn't come with all the features you'd find in more expensive ($800+) digital cameras. The SuperPro 640 lacks an LCD screen for viewing images, and manual override options. It also features only four buttons in total (but that can be a good thing!). You can rule out action photos, too; outdoor stills seem to produce the best results.

Overall, though, resolution is the main worry here - unless you intend to use the images small - but that is to be expected at the budget level. For its price, the IXLA Photo Easy Deluxe bundle represents a value-based entry into digital imaging.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
