Samsung SH100 Will Offer Android Remote Features

samsung_sh100.jpgConnect your Android phone to your camera with the Samsung SH100, a ~$200 point and shoot due to hit the market in March of this year. You'll be able to use your phone as a remote for the camera - as long as you have a Samsung Galaxy S - and there are some other great features as well:

The Galaxy phone works as a real-time viewfinder and remote--though it's not clear how much control you have from the phone beyond zoom and shutter--and the GPS inside can be used by the camera for geotagging. The Wi-Fi also shoots photos back to a PC or DLNA-compatible HDTV, along with instant uploads to Facebook, YouTube, Picasa and PhotoBucket.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Interchangeable Lens

panasonic_lumix_dmc_g1.jpgSave big on an interchangeable-lens camera by purchasing a previous model of the Panasonic Lumix DMC - in this case the G1. This camera has 12.1 megapixels and comes with a Vario 14-45 mm lens. This camera got a great review from DPreview.com, and if you don't want to get the old generation camera, check out the DMC-G2.

Kodak EasyShare M341 Digital Camera

kodak_easyshare_m341.jpgTreating yourself to a compact digital camera with 12.2 megapixels and 3x optical zoom and a 2.7" LCD screen, like the Kodak EasyShare M341, is always a good idea. It's an even better idea right now, when you can pick it up for under $100, which is over sixty bucks off the list price. This deal is only available for a limited time, so if you want it you'd better jump on it.

Now you can stop thinking about camera settings and start shooting. Kodak's innovative Smart Capture feature takes care of the little things you don't want to deal with, so you can take beautiful pictures--automatically. Smart Capture controls focus, flash, exposure--it even locates faces. All in a colorful, contemporary design that's surprisingly small. Just like the price.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 14.1 MP Digital Camera

panasonic_lumix_dmc_fz40.jpgAfter posting the flickr Friday Banksy photo, I've been curious about the Panasonic Lumix series. I like the fact it's a slightly larger point and shoot camera, which gives me the feel of being an honest-to-goodness photographist (that's the word, right?) Some of the smaller cameras feel more portable, and it's easier to toss them in a pocket, but sometimes you just want a camera that feels like a camera. So what else does the Lumix DMC-FZ40 offer?

It's got 14.1-megapixel resolution and a 24x optical zoom with 25mm wide-angle Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens, as well as a three-inch screen on the back, which is much more generous than most of the pocket-style cameras. You can also take HD video, and take advantage of all kinds of intelligent photography modes.

Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS: 12.1 Megapixel

canon_powershot_sd1300.jpgI've been on the market for a smaller, pocket-friendly camera lately, and I think it's possible I just found it. I was extremely happy with the Canon PowerShot I used to have - until the dirt-cheap aftermarket battery I bought exploded inside it. Let that be a lesson to you - don't be afraid to spend more than $0.99 on you Li-Ion.

The PowerShot SD1300 has a wide-angle lens, 4x optical zoom with image stabilizer, and a 2.7 inch screen on the back for your viewfinding/picture viewing pleasure. The best part? It's on sale for $30 off until November 20, 2010.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Makes All-Time 100 Gadgets

canon_eos_5d_mark2.jpgThe Canon EOS 5D Mark II is the kind of camera that makes me drool, and it turns out I'm not the only one who thinks it's a pretty durned neat piece of electronics. Time Magazine recently picked their Top 100 Gadgets of All Time and this little baby made the cut. Here's a snippet from their write-up:

An innovation that changed an industry, the full-frame 21-megapixel 5D Mark II was the first DSLR to feature full HD (1080p) video recording. Filmmakers quickly adopted the cheaper alternative to conventional and expensive interchangeable-lens cameras that film studios use.
Was it the CMOS sensor? The Digic 4 processor? The ability to take HD video? The wireless file transmitter? Or was it the fact it was the first digital camera to take an official presidential portrait? You be the judge.
