Amazon has terrific deals today on point and shoot digital cameras, with big discounts on little cameras.
One of the best cameras on sale (50% off!) is the Canon PowerShot G11 10MP. I have the earlier G10 model and highly recommend it; it’s a great small camera that works well as a point-and-shoot, but also has more advanced features usually found only on digital SLRs.
I have a Nikon D90 digital SLR camera, and love it. I’ve used the D90’s still photography capabilities quite a bit, but one of the items on my to-do list is to further explore the camera’s high definition video features.
The nice thing about a DSLR that shoots HD video is that you can use any SLR lens and/or filter that’s compatible with the camera, allowing a world of effects you just can’t achieve with a camcorder. It’s possible to get an amazingly professional look, if you have high quality lenses and know how to use them.
LGF reader Thanos pointed out this page at the Canon website promoting their new high-end EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP digital SLR, with a documentary by Dallas-based photojournalist David Leeson that demonstrates the fantastic results you can get (and is pretty interesting in itself). Serious techno-lust ensued.
An incredible new 12.1 megapixel digital camera from Nikon has an ultra-small built-in projector capable of beaming images from 5 to 40 inches in size, with a brightness rating of 10 lumens: Nikon Coolpix S1000pj 12.1MP Digital Camera with Built-in Projector and 5x Wide Angle Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) Zoom.
