The good news about Canon’s new SX line is that its low cost. So that means more people can have quality pictures at their beckon. It has ultra zoom, with a pretty decent 10x zoom in quality. Canon SX100 has 8.0 megapixel, nice big screen at the back for clearer shoot, it also has a higher compression movie mode. Good for Youtube fanatics who wants to post videos of themselves.
The Canon SX100 costs $299 for some nice features. :)
Camcorders are not usually known for taking still pictures, which was why I was quite surprise when the the Canon TX1 comes out a winner for taking still pictures with the guys at Gizmodo (who obviously gave it a try). According to them, the video camera is currently the cheapest video recorder you can find in the market that gives you a great bang for your buck.
The picture taking mode for the Canon TX1 is likened to the quality of a 7Megapixel ultra-compact cameras. In my opinion, that’s pretty good as it is. I only use a 6.3MP Fujifilm’s Finepix for my food blog. I may need to do some tweaking after but it’s all good.
So, since the Canon TX1 has better photo camera functionality that most others camcorders, it is still not advised for the sole purpose of photo taking. This camcorder is just an all rounder as it gives good quality HD recording while it allows you to take stills whenever you feel like it. But if you want some serious picture taking gadget, it’s better to invest in a Canon D40 or D200.
SED technology boosts of the best of LCD, Plasma and CRT at a cheap price. These two giants, Canon and Toshiba, have been promising us that they will mass produce SED TVs to the public but their promises has since fallen short everytime with excuses. This time it’s no different. The SED is delayed again because they want to find a way to mass produce them cheaply.
Call wolf too many times and people might just ignore you next time. I hope the SED TV come out soon for their own sake.
