Meet The All-New, Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS5

Panasonic has unveiled its LUMIX DMC-LS5 digital camera featuring a 14.1Mp, 26mm wide angle, 5x optical zoom lens. This is an entry level camera with top quality features such as HD video recording and 26mm wide angle lens. Owing to its O.I.S feature, the camera is capable of taking crisp pictures even in dim-light situations and has the capability to capture a 720p high definition video.

The camera gets its power from AA batteries which is a little weird as AA batteries don’t last long. However, Panasonic has tried to justify this change by stating that they are aware of the consumers’ different requirements and preferences.

Facebook is proud to announce that the social media giant now has integrated facial recognition in its online platform. This new system allows content to be match with faces for an easier way to tag photos. Although tagging is still done by your friends, the new facial recognition software detects the face and pushes it like an advertisement on the right hand side of your friends’ screen.

This new system allows for quick and efficient tagging for those moments where you wish you could tag but don’t feel like being stranded down to the computer all day.

$35 Waterproof Digital Camera, Amazing Deal

Have you ever wanted to go white water rafting without destroying your state-of-the-art digital camera, or wrecking your brand new Android smartphone? If the answer is yes, Photojojo may have a solution for you. The company has launched a digital camera, priced at just $35, that will take pictures at a 1.3MP resolution (I had a 1.3MP digital camera in 2002).

The LCD display isn’t anything too special, as it measures only 1.4″ diagonal. The camera can take photos of up to 100 feet underwater. While it won’t take the sharpest photos (by far), it certainly is better than nothing, especially when you’re set to go snorkeling but don’t have any water-proof cameras with you.

200MP H4D-200MS Camera: $45,000

A company called Hasselblad has just created a 200MP camera called the H4D-200MS. The camera is based on a 50MP sensor and composites six shots to create the effective resolution. Each photo takes about 30 seconds to take and uses a piezoelectric motor to create the image. Since 30 seconds is quite a long time to hold a smile and the lungs can only exhale so much, this camera is most ideal for product photography.

The camera shoots at modest sensitivities between ISO 50 and 800, and keeps the True Focus feature. The True Focus feature uses motion sensors to auto-adjust the focus after the camera is rotated for an off-center shot. Now here’s the kicker:

Lomography Rolls Out LC-Wide Plastic Camera

Lomography has just unleashed a new plastic camera that uses 35mm film and plastic cameras. A lomography camera uses cheaply made materials to create colorful and dreamy photographs. Each camera is unique and its effects vignetting and light leaks are valued as part of the imperfect vintage look. This camera is called the LC-Wide and comes at a $389, a price most do not consider cheap.

The camera features a 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle Lens. The LC-Wide camera gives users the freedom of choosing three different photo formats (full, half, or square) as well as choosing vibrant colors, strong vignetting, and multiple exposures.

Sigma Announces 46MP Camera

Electronics manufacturer, Sigma has just released a very high-end 46 megapixel DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera that is sure to capture the highest quality photos. Hitting the ultra-high benchmark of megapixels doesn’t come easy. Sigma used a three-layer sensor, made up of 15MP per layer, using a True II Image processor.

The super sharp camera also produces 100 to 6,400 iso sensitivity, 11-point auto-focus and has a magnesium body with sealed o-rings. The camera features a three-inch 460,000 color LCD that ensures the photographer that only the best photos be taken.

Facebook Starts Using PhotoDNA

Facebook will be the first company other than Microsoft to use Microsoft’s PhotoDNA technology (a system that has greatly helped the fight against child pornography). PhotoDNA was developed in collaboration with Dartmouth College, that acts as a digital fingerprint from photographs to be able to find and identify other versions of the same images online. Microsoft had previously donated PhotoDNA to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Toshiba Beats Apple’s Retina Display, By Miles

Okay, so Apple Shmapple, you’ve heard all the talks about iPhone’s technology and why you should get it. One of the iPhone’s coolest features, at least in my opinion, is its retina display. Although I am a bit of a pixel fanatic, it’s time to look our eyes away from Apple and towards technology of the future. Samsung introduced a highly dense pixel resolution just last week, and Toshiba is keeping up the paces.

Toshiba has just come forth with a new four inch display that will be used in smartphones. The 4-inch screen will feature a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, allowing it to display HD video in 720p.
