Underwater Photos with a Digital Camera Mask

scubamaskcamera.jpg

Swim with the fishes! Liquid Image has come up with a digital-camera-scuba-mask-in-one. The camera lens is right over the nose, and there's crosshairs in the tempered glass so you can line up the perfect shot. 5 megapixels with a 16MB internal memory -- that'll get you 29 hi-res photos and 45 low-res -- add a Micro SD Card for more memory, or just come up for air and download the shots to your laptop via USB. It can also capture 53 seconds of video. The mask will retail at $99 -- you'll need 2 AAA batteries, but it comes with image editing software (ArcSoft). This could be a lot of fun for kids -- one size fits all, safe for ages 8 and up, and there's a 3 megapixel version for a little less dough. Stay tuned for more news on its release in March!

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi — Stellar, Affordable, Intuitive

canonrebelXTi.jpg
The Canon Rebel XTi is one of the best deals in the digital SLR market. If you’re looking for megapixel power and creative control, then this is the camera for you. Here’s the stats:

- 10.1 megapixel—will give you quality prints up to 18” x 24”
- 2.5” LCD display—view and edit your photos on camera
- 9-point auto-focus—very accurate upgrade
- DIGIC II Image Processor—natural color reproduction in a range of lighting situations
- It’s fast—0.2 second startup time, records images as fast as 1/4000 seconds, 27 shots per minute
- Comes with 18-55mm zoom lens—standard zoom with close-focus ability of 0.9 feet
- Creative picture style settings—monochrome, landscape, portrait… get film effects shot by shot
- Self-cleaning, dust-detecting—sensor unit cleans itself automatically with ultrasonic vibrations

Beware of lens lust. Once you get going you’ll yearn for a wide angle to get the most out of small spaces, and a super zoom to zero in on that horse. If you’re finding the flash too harsh, try adding a digital flash pack — you’ll be able to bounce it off the ceiling to soften things up.

Pick up the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi at Amazon for $598 — sweet deal.

Get Slimmer — with the NEW Samsung i8

OK, we’re impressed with what Samsung packed into this skinny machine:

- 8 megapixel with 3x optical zoom
- 2.7-inch LCD monitor (dims and brightens according to your environment!)
- Personal Media Player (PMP) for audio and video playback
- Shoots MPG-4 video at 800x592 resolution
- 195MB internal memory plus ability to add memory card
- ISO up to 1600 will allow non-flash photography in dim situations
- Digital Image Stabilization helps keep things steady (even if you’ve got the shakes)
- Intelligent Face Recognition & Auto Red Eye Fix
- It’s only 0.8 inches thick!!!

And truth be told, this little number is fancy looking. Glossy, white, reflective — yum!

Amazon’s got it on preorder for $249.99 — get slim!
