Available in a red, silver, black or blue finish, the PowerShot A800 combines a subtle, soft-edged design with a genuine Canon lens to deliver Canon image quality at an affordable price.  Compact enough to slip in a pocket, the PowerShot A800 offers 10.0 Megapixels, a 3.3x optical zoom and a bright 6.2 cm (2.5”) LCD display to make capturing and sharing images quick, easy and fun.

Fantastic photographs – wherever you are

The PowerShot A800 features Smart Auto mode which automatically detects up to 19 different scenes and applies the best picture settings for the conditions, so whether you’re taking photos of people, landscapes, sunsets or close subjects you can rely on Canon know-how to take the best picture. When shooting indoors or capturing moving subjects, the Blur Reduction mode Blur Reduction Mode with resolution fixed at 1600 x 1200 helps to put an end to blurry images. If you’re feeling more creative you can choose Super Vivid or Poster Effect for more colourful and artistic results.
The PowerShot A800 has the added benefit of being powered by two AA batteries, making them easy to replace if you’re ever out of power on the go.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Introduction


Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
