The Samsung GALAXY Camera (aka EK-GC100) is an interesting new camera from Samsung. I have actually been waiting for these kind of cameras for a while, because it’s an obvious next step to do what Samsung have been doing with the new Galaxy camera – integrating Internet and apps into the camera! It’s too early to say if this camera is a good one, but if you just read the specification sheet it sure looks great; 21x optical touch zoom lens, a bright 16M BSI CMOS sensor, quad-core processor, WiFi and 3G & 4G connections. If they just add some proper phone functionalities I guess that many would switch their Android phones for a device like the Samsung GALAXY Camera as the camera keeps becoming more and more important when you decide what phone to buy.

The Canon EOS C100 is a brand new semi-pro / pro video camera based on the recently announced Cinema EOS System. It’s a bit simpler than the EOS C300 but still a very competent video camera. Paul Joy has spent some time comparing the two models and he has also published plenty of images of the C100. Full press release after the jump.
Sony unveiled a groundbreaking TV today at the IFA 2012 in Berlin. They presented the XBR-84X900 which is one of the first TV models capable of showing 4K content (pixel resolution of 3840 x2160). No word on pricing yet but it will be a really expensive piece – and at this point you really can’t use all the pixels except for showing photos and making it act as a computer screen. And also keep in mind that placing a 84 inch beast in your livingroom can be a bit tricky, but if you can afford this TV you probably have plenty of space… At least it’s interesting to see that the 4K technology is making some progress!
