Canon EOS 5D

Canon's EOS 5D is a 12.8 egapixel D-SLR, or digital single-lens reflex, designed for serious enthusiasts and professionals. It's the first affordable D-SLR with a full-frame sensor, widely considered to be the Holy Grail of digital photography.

Sony Cybershot DSC-R1

With the high-end camera market currently dominated by SLR (single lens reflex) digicams, you'd think there'd be no demand for a new all-in-one model. But Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-R1 isn't like any all-in-one ever released. It's got a 10.8Mp (megapixels...

Nikon Coolpix 8700

Nikon's 8Mp Coolpix 8700 combines high resolutions, long lenses and stacks of features. It is capable of delivering the same 3264x2448-pixel images as its 8Mp peers - around 25 per cent more than a 5Mp camera offers, and enough detail to make good-lo...

D-SLR great for beginners

Pentax's oddly-named "*ist DS" is a 6.1Mp D-SLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera competing with products like Canon's now older EOS-300D. Although it was released late last year and now also has 8Mp competition, the *ist DS is still one of the sma...

Olympus Camedia C-8080

The Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom is the latest in a raft of new 8 megapixel digital cameras. Like its 8MP rivals from Canon, Nikon, Sony and Konica Minolta, it captures enough detail to make great looking inkjet prints up to A3 size - a considera...

Professional digital camera: Coolpix 8700

Nikon's 8Mp Coolpix 8700 com-bines high resolutions, long lenses and stacks of features for $1999. It is capable of delivering the same 3264x2448-pixel images as its 8Mp peers - around 25 per cent more than a 5Mp camera offers, and enough detail to m...

Minolta Dimage 7Hi digital camera

Many of the latest high-end digital cameras have essentially been improved versions of earlier models -- Sony’s DSC-F717 and Fujifilm’s FinePix S602 Pro spring immediately to mind. Minolta’s new Dimage 7Hi is also an update of an earlier model, the 7...

O2 Xda PDA / mobile phone

Touted as the ultimate all-in-one device for mobile professionalism, O2’s Xda can handle e-mail, voice calls, browse the Web and manage your diary. It measures a svelte 129x73x18mm, and weighs just 201g — much smaller than a jacketed iPaq. Its hard...

Nikon Coolpix 5700

Nikon's new Coolpix 5700 has much in common with the earlier Coolpix 5000. Both share the same 5 megapixel CCD, with sufficient detail to make great-looking 13x10in colour inkjet prints.

Nikon Coolpix 4500

The Coolpix 4500 shares the split chassis of the 995, but adds a host of design, feature and specification improvements that will please advanced and novice users alike. This 4 megapixel digital camera has a maximum resolution of 2272x1704 and a 4x o...

RosettaNet touts implementations
