Panasonic GF2 vs. Olympus E-PL2: Which micro four-thirds is for you?

pana-vs-oly

I’m a big fan of the micro four-thirds format. You get the flexibility of interchangeable lenses, a larger sensor, and all kinds of SLR-like controls in a package that isn’t much bigger than a point-and-shoot. But which camera reigns supreme?

jvc3dhdcamcorder-th

You don’t need to be James Cameron to shoot in 3D. Seemingly following in the footsteps of Panasonic and Sony, JVC has now revealed its own prosumer level 3D camcorder in the form of the GS-TD1. This beast of a compact camcorder isn’t exactly for the light at heart, but it is being targeted much […]

Going super light with Panasonic Toughbook S9 laptop

pana-s9clamshell-01

This isn’t a briefcase-sized laptop. Instead, it’s a much smaller 12.1-inch notebook that tips the scales at a mere three pounds. That makes it the lightest laptop of its size with a built-in optical DVD drive. I like thin and light laptops as much as the next person, but Toughbook isn’t exactly the first name that comes to mind for that kind of thing.

Panasonic 360° Freestyle cordless iron makes a great gift for Misses Tech

panasonic-NI-WL60-01

Some say these types of gifts are not always the best for the misses, well, I think Panasonic’s 360° Freestyle Cordless Steam/Dry Iron is an exception to the clause. And unlike a set of corningware, or having your photo silkscreened on an apron, the $100 Freestyle is practical and without a doubt one of the coolest looking irons I’ve ever seen.

Panasonic announces first 3D video consumer camcorder arriving in October for $1400

3dcam_back_slant_lcd_high

Panasonic has unveiled the world’s first consumer 3D video camcorder, the HDC-SDT750. Recording works by using a 3D mode which is enabled by simply snapping on a 3D conversion lens designed to fit exactly to the camcorder. It records a split image, so you won’t be getting full 1080p 3D, but more like 960 x 1080. That’s pretty good for the first of its kind.

Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera sports Leica lens

Panasonic Lumix LX5 Digital Camera

I’m more of a Canon guy, but cameras like the new Panasonic Lumix LX5 sound awfully attractive. It may not have the boldest of looks, but this successor to the LX3 improves on the already popular shooter in many ways. Yes, it’s still rocking a 10-megapixel CCD sensor, but most people don’t need a resolution beyond that.

Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-G2 and DMC-G10 – Digital Inter-changeable Lens like never before

Panasnoic G10

Panasonic came out with a stellar camera way back when with the G1, it had a DSLR frame but a Micro Four Thirds System internally and was the first camera of its size to use interchangeable lenses. The Micro Four Thirds System allows smaller frames to be built with lighter lenses, a huge advantage over DSLR cameras.

Panasonic has now revealed two high-end Four Thirds cameras, the G10 and the more powerful G2 both with a 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens, and both offering the “Intelligent Resolution Technology” which smoothens and sharpens an image giving you superior quality.

Survive anything with Panasonic Toughbook H1 Field tablet

panasonic-toughbook-h1-02

It’s clear that Steve Jobs and the rest of the team in Cupertino have opened up an incredible floodgate with the announcement of the Apple iPad. We’re going to see a lot of new entries in the tablet/e-reader department in the months to come, but very few will be able to be quite as rugged as the new Panasonic Toughbook H1 Field. It ain’t slim, it ain’t sleek, but it’s tough as nails.
