Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM Lens Review
     Wed, Jun 11 2014 | 4:00P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 70-200mm focal length has been one of the most versatile and popular zoom ranges available. First introduced in March of 1995 the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM has been one of the go to lenses for sports, portraiture, and journalism across the world. Canon has four 70-200mm lenses in their lineup, two f/2.8s and f/4s with and without IS. As a portrait photographer I find the f/2.8 aperture is a must have over the f/4 versions to completely isolate your subject and stray from any distractions or environmental flaws. Thus is why I sold my 70-200mm f/4L USM earlier this year and purchased this f/2.8 version. Though it lacks image stabilization and the weather sealing that its newer 70-200mm f/2.8L USM IS II brother has, it is around $1,000 cheaper and lighter, making it a much better bang for your buck.

Today Technology X is taking a look at the Nikon D7100 18-105 VR Kit, which features the Nikon D7100 DSLR camera body and a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens … now that’s a mouthful! We’re taking a look at the D7100 and 18-105mm lens from a user’s perspective, showing you some examples of how well the photos and videos turn out. We even went on the road to Niagara Falls Butterfly Conservatory to take a look at some vivid color comparisons.

Compro TN4230 Outdoor PoE IP Camera Review
     Tue, May 20 2014 | 5:34P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Security cameras that run over a standard IP network are becoming more of a common place in the home and in a commercial environment, partly due to their ease of setup and the seamless integration in to an existing backbone, but also the ease of scaling the system up to the levels that we find in our supermarkets [for example] where tens, if not hundreds of cameras are connected in to a single environment. The additional benefit of utilising IP cameras though is the ability to connect into the system from a remote location and use it as though you are on the site itself. This is not where the selling points end though; power delivery to the cameras is another factor that has to be taken into account and with so many cameras in some instances being required, or the position where they required not the convenient for the purpose of mains power, the capacity to power the cameras directly from the network switch and through a single cable with the data to the camera, makes the speed of installation and the ease of expansion much quicker and easier.

Intel Iris Graphics 5100: Windows 8.1 vs. Ubuntu
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 4:01P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Under the Linux microscope today is the Intel Iris Graphics 5100 (GT3) found on the Core i7 4558U CPU within the ASUS Zenbook UX301LA "Haswell" ultrabook. How do the Intel Iris Graphics performance compare between Windows 8.1 and the soon-to-be-released Ubuntu 14.04? We can tell you the answer today with a fresh round of multi-OS OpenGL benchmarks from this high-end Intel ultrabook."

Rollei CarDVR-110 Full HD GPS Car Camera
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 4:03P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many times have you found yourself in or in front of a car accident and you just wished you had the means to prove that you were not the one responsible? Well i don`t know about you all but this has happened to me once and although in my case i saw the person responsible for my accident he fled the scene almost immediately afterwards and got lost in traffic so in the end i just had no way of tracking him down to get his insurance information (although i really doubt he had any). Of course there are many other reasons for a person to own a good car camera/camcorder but even so i don`t even know a single person who does own one. On the other hand i know quite a few who chose to go with action cameras for more flexibility and although i can understand their choice (not many can afford to have two such cameras) still dedicated car models come packing certain features you will need a lot more when inside your car. Rollei has been in the camera business for many decades and after the very good S-50 Wi-Fi Nitro Circus Live Limited Edition Action Camera which we reviewed a while back it was just a matter of time before we put their latest CarDVR-110 Full HD GPS Car Camera to the test."

HTC One Max 6-Inch Android Smartphone Review:
     Tue, Feb 11 2014 | 5:45P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all want more from our smartphones. Whether it's more screen real estate, more battery life, a better camera, or more storage for pictures, videos, and games, it seems there's always something we could use more of from our phones. Manufacturers are constantly striving to deliver the best device, touting the areas in which they've provided "more." HTC designed its One Max with demanding users in mind. This smartphone boasts "more screen size, more camera, more everything" according to the company. With its 5.9-inch screen and 3300mAh battery, the One Max is in line to compete with other phablet devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3... Another unique feature of the HTC One is the integrated fingerprint reader which unlocks the phone. It's located on the back of the device just below the camera.

Android App Pick - Torque Pro - BCCHardware App Pick
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 10:07A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are getting our gear-head on. We`ve got an Automotive Application that may not be the most appealing app for you if you only own a bicycle, but if you`ve got a car or a truck and have spent more than $20 at a mechanic, you`ll love what this app can offer in terms of easy-to-understand diagnostics as well as full support to monitor and test your automobile. Torque Pro is not a free app, but it`s worth every penny!"

In the end, it`s up to you whether you feel $300 USD is justified. For what the SHIELD offers, the price is more than acceptable, but if you don`t plan on utilizing all that it offers, you`ll be in for a tougher decision. Still, if you have a high-end NVIDIA PC or are planning on buying a new GPU, the SHIELD will make a great addition to anyone`s holiday wishlist. Just don`t forget to factor in an additional $39.99 for the official carrying case, because you`re going to want that to."

iconBIT NetTAB MERCURY Q7 (NT-3602M) Smartphone Review @ Madshrimps

The offered Android revision is 4.2.1 and for having longer standby times the manufacturer has also packed a large 2800mAh Li-ion battery."

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Smartphone Review - BCCHardware
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 4:34P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Clearly a device this size isn`t for everyone but if you`re considering a 7 tablet in the near future and maybe you`re due for a new phone, take a good long look at the Galaxy Note 3 as it can easily kill two birds with one proverbial stone. I do caution you that if you`re switching from a ~4 device, that you make sure to try out a Note 3 in the store before you buy one. The size may be a turn-off for some, but most people I`ve talked to love the large format and the extra screen real estate that it offers."

MeCam Personal HD Camera Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Nov 09 2013 | 9:02A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our lives have become very social oriented and weve got cameras with us all the time anymore and we seem to be recording just about everything and Im not sure if thats a good thing or not personally. Today for review Ive got the MeCam which resembles a big button that you might wear on your shirt or coat, but its really a 720p HD mini video camera so you can record life as you live it. The MeCam also has a 5mp still camera built-in along with infrared LEDs so it can work in low light situations and uses a standard microSD card for storage. The camera can be purchased in varying storage capacities and there are several different colors to pick from. Read on.. "

A Cup Of Coffee And Google Glass
     Sat, Nov 02 2013 | 12:03P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wearable computing is all the rage, and for good reason; pretty much everyone can agree that although our smartphones are immensely powerful, they're actually rather inconvenient. Using one requires at least one hand, often two, and it's cumbersome to dig into your pocket, purse, or bag to retrieve them whenever you get a notification. We're slaves to those dings and boops. Google Glass is one of the more promising bits of wearable technology out there. Smart watches are proliferating like rabbits, sure, and other glasses-type tech is in the offing, but Google Glass has the full backing of one of the largest companies in the world and is also the pet project of one of its founders...

Zetta Z12 Intelligent Security Camcorder
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 6:21P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve always found camcorders to be one of the very few fascinating electronic devices around since they can hold all your precious memories unaltered forever or at least for as long as you`d like. Surveillance cameras may not be exactly the same as camcorders but they too have their purpose and who can deny the significance of letting you keep an eye on things even if you`re far away? So it`s not really surprising that when the first action cameras started to emerge a few years back i also developed an interest in them although i can`t say i was really impressed by the first few attempts. Quite a few years have passed since then and now action cameras have not only gotten smaller in size but they also feature higher grade hardware components allowing them to record up to FullHD 1080p resolutions with bitrates that in some cases rival the ones of regular handheld camcorders. Not everyone however has use for 1080p and so Zetta has introduced an SD (Standard Definition) intelligent security camcorder the Z12 which we took for a ride to see what it can do."

Nokia Lumia 1020 41 Megapixel Camera Phone Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 10:03A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn?t seem that long ago that having a cell phone with a camera was only for those who had an excess of money laying around. It was more of a status symbol for those who wanted ?1-up? their friends and family. A few short years later, a camera phone was pretty much a standard. They?ve slowly replaced stand alone digital cameras at family gatherings, and events across the board. The traditional cell phone camera doesn?t really compare to a quality digital camera, but Nokia is looking to close the gap with their latest Smart phone. The Nokia Lumia 1020 smart phone sets itself apart from the competition with a 41 Megapixel camera!"
