Canon unveiled a new, compact PowerShot model at the CES 2013 in Las Vegas USA. It features an unconventional square design and a tilting touch screen to be able to capture images from new angles. It comes with wifi connectivity, a 12.1 megapixel sensor and 8x optical zoom.
The aperture range is F3.0 – F5.9 and it can take 2.3 photos per second. It also features a range of creative modes such as Miniature Effect, Soft Focus and Toy Camera Effect and even a Super Slow Motion Movie mode. Gallery inside.
Some guy cleaned his desktop from images and found this gem and posted it on Digg. It is a really funny ad from a dude wanting to get rid of some building blocks, but I guess he got tired of all the mails he got. Funny stuff!
Photographyblog.com have been playing around with Panasonics new megazoom camera DMC-FZ18. The camera features a massive 18x zoom lens – the equivalent of having a 28 mm – 504 zoom lens on – which makes it a camera that can shoot almost any picture. The camera is suitable for those of you who want to shoot advanced pictures but still not want to take the full leap and go for a DLSR. The camera got a nice review – 4.5 out of 5. Check it out.

I was totally stunned by this shot of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse in San Mateo County, California south of San Francisco. Apparently you can only take this kind of photo once a year when they turn on 5 kerosene lamps and fresnel lens of the original as the lighthouse used 135 years ago. Amazing shot.
Sony Cyber-shot T2 is the latest mid model from Sony. It’s a standard point and shoot 8.1 megapixel camera with some neat features. First of all we got to mention the internal memory. This model can store a massive 4GB via the built-in memory – which basically means that you can take up to 1250 photos in the highest resolution without even feeding it with a memorystick. The camera also features face detection, HD output and a 2.7″ touchscreen. The camera comes in five different colors and it will be available in Decembe for $350. More photos and press release inside.
Here’s a pretty cool product that is the perfect way for celebrities getting rid of the paparazzis. If the spray works, it’s supposed to produce a layer of super reflective particles on sprayed areas, making the flash light reflect so much light back to the camera that makes the face and other sprayed areas just a white spot.
