The Digital SLR camera is an odd, middle of the round kind of market, but it’s one that Nikon has pretty much got in the bag. After a solid year last year, releasing high end and budget cameras, it is set to release a mid range (if you can really call a £1,999 price tag, mid range) D700 camera at the end of this month. That’s not to say that it doesn’t offer great value for money, because it includes many of the features that you would normally only find on its vastly more expensive older brothers and sisters. It also...

Dell has staged its first foray into the Tablet PC jungle with the Latitude XT – a convertible that combines lightweight form with heavyweight power. While it might be Dell’s first attempt, it has already proven popular and successful since its launch at the beginning of the year. For those of you wondering, a convertible tablet PC is one that can be used like a standard laptop with vertical screen or it can be twisted so that the screen lies flat like a tablet PC. Where the Latitude XT does differ from many models is that offers...

Do you listen to music when you go to bed? Do you ever wake your partner up with your music blaring?  Do you wish you had a more comfortable pillow? If you answered yes to any of these questions then we may have found the gadget for you in the form of the sound asleep pillow.

I just had to try it! The sound asleep pillow...

Samsung MP3 players may not be as widely purchased as iPod, but they tend to offer excellent design and superb features for a not entirely unreasonable price tag. The Samsung K5 is an excellent example – modern and stylish in design, it also offers an excellent slide out speaker for when you don’t want your personal MP3 player to be that personal. Available on Amazon for less than £100, the 2GB model is a snip compared to some of the more over priced alternatives on the market. Its ultra slim design make it practical for carrying...

As an Internet nerd I spend quite a lot of time sat on my backside on my computer. The unfortunate result is that I do not get a great deal of exercise and have put on a few pounds! As the summer has finally arrived (sort of) I thought I would get myself a new bike and get back in the saddle. I used to go cross country riding and have been known to thrash my bike through my local woods and hills so I knew a good mountain bike was the only way to go.  The model of choice was the Merida matts 850-D and I have been thouroughly testing it...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 is the second digital SLR camera that Panasonic has manufactured and this second model is packed full of easy to use features that help take stunning photographs. The L10 is a modern looking digital SLR compared to it’s predecessor which was modelled a traditional SLR camera. The result is a better looking camera which is easier to use and handle as the size and ergonomics are not overbearing like some other cameras on the market. Panasonic have also included some new features which I like. This includes...

A few weeks ago we were invited to Panasonic’s imaging event in London to test the latest cameras and camcorders Panasonic has to offer.  Today we attended the event at the perfect venue to test cameras, the Dali universe (which is next to the London eye, houses of parliament, near tower bridge etc). So there was plenty to snap away at. I reviewed the Panasonic HDC-SD9 camcorder and today I am going to show you some of the stills that were taken whilst speeding along on a boat – this was the perfect test for the Panasonic’s OIS...
