HDI.Photoforum 2009

I've been going to this pair of exhibitions for the third year in a row. Over time, the trip has become a kind of habit - to visit Crocus Expo in mid-April to see what manufacturers of televisions, blu-ray, photo and video cameras, as well as all other devices are ready to offer for the near future. On duty, on my last two visits, I was more interested in HD technology and everything related to high definition. And if a couple of years ago HD cameras and healthy Full HD TVs (at affordable prices) only loomed on the horizon, today it is already the widest market, primarily in terms of assortment, and for the most diverse consumer.

Over time, the format of the exhibition has changed a little, of course, Suit for Men-Blue It is worth considering the financial situation and everything that is going on in the world, however, this has drastically affected the number of pavilions, the approaches of companies.

For starters, I would like to say that HDI and the Photoforum have become practically inseparable - the stands of photo companies are adjacent to representatives of the HDI exhibition. Large manufacturers did not build separate stands at all - the existing compositions have separate sections dedicated to photography, at the same time, home theaters, video cameras, a huge number of laptops, etc. are presented in the neighboring sector.

The change in the scale of the exhibition is evident. Moreover, a couple of times, walking between the rows, I managed to become a witness to the conversations of company representatives that the exhibition did not suit them, did not fulfill their hopes. At the Sennhaiser stand, it was so bluntly said: "No, we will not be exhibiting next year."

However, some companies did not erect stands this year either.

Neither Panasonic nor Samsung were present at the exhibition, there were no stands of Toshiba, Philips either.

The entire exhibition was held under the auspices of Sony. I won’t be surprised if the company decides in the future to organize something like a Sony day specifically for technology lovers, while the list of companies wishing to exhibit will be reduced to a minimum, but the number of those wishing to look at new products and technologies, albeit only one brand, is still will be large enough.

So, in this article I will describe my impressions about the stands and the products presented on them. Not all companies will be here, I did not set myself the goal of describing all the representatives, only some companies and devices that interested me personally.

Next are the company's laptops. Unfortunately, nothing fundamentally new was presented at the stand from Vaio laptops, updates are planned only by the summer, and this time it was possible to evaluate the devices of the current generation. However, the company has something to show: for example, games with style, attractive contours and curls. The small (and cute) "Pishka" looks very harmonious in this environment, showing with all its appearance that "I am also Sony".

As for the music players, of course, the granite x1000 dominates here, which could easily be studied from all sides. The musical theme continues in the headphone player (which was already mentioned in Sergey's article), as well as in other representatives of the Walkman line. Of course, Rolly has not gone anywhere (this is not surprising - everyone is still watching him closely, smiling at the cheerful dances). Personally, I was also attracted by the new headphones (I will talk with Serezha to contribute to a future review of some of the presented models).

The overall style of the devices is really striking. It is no wonder that the company has so many admirers, and many of them have such a hobby as "furnishing the whole apartment with these devices." It has been said more than once, but I repeat: only one company, Apple, evokes similar devotion, but the Japanese, unlike the Americans, also produce photo frames, cameras, camcorders, are actively involved in the film business and the gaming industry. So you can easily immerse yourself and live in this world without experiencing any particular inconvenience.

The next section could be called "about the life of concepts". Last year, during the demonstration of the first commercial OLED TV with a diagonal of 11 inches, a stunning image and an incredible price, there was talk that it was unlikely to appear on official sale in Russia - at that time they expected the release of a 26-inch OLED TV, sales should have started right away. This time, again, last year's 11-inch XEL-1 was presented at the booth, a larger sample of the display flaunted in the frame (it looks like a 22-inch diagonal screen), and behind the glass was demonstrated the world's thinnest OLED display with a thickness of only 0.3 mm , but this is more of a demonstration of the technology, I think it will take a couple more years to translate it into real devices.

Next, I will talk about other innovations that are equally exciting and, most importantly, they are much closer to publication.

Turning around the corner, we find ourselves in the section of digital compacts and ultrazooms of the company. First of all, the young man hurries to tell us about the new technology of automatic shooting - the autophotographer. Everything has been implemented so far only in the demo version, but the general meaning is more or less clear (unlike the application). The process involves the camera and docking station, which automatically pans and tilts the camera to capture the best angle for capturing faces in the frame. The docking station is also responsible for processing the resulting images. To be honest, I didn’t see much practical application in this: such shooting is not suitable for photographing the environment, for example, in nature, the camera only clicks on faces. The manufacturer positions such a solution for photographing friends at a party.

Two recording devices are shown side by side. One compact one, which allows you to "cut" a film from a camera into a disc without a computer. The modest size pleases here, the lack of HD-video support is a little frustrating. For these purposes, another device, its dimensions are somewhat larger, however, the functionality is higher. In addition to the main functions - recording high-quality video (1080p) to a disk - there is a video input (tulips), with it you can connect a VCR and digitize old cassettes, along with upscaling to a resolution of 1920x1080.

Next we head to the cameras. Among ultrazooms, I would like to note two models. The first is the H20, the logical continuation is the camera with the H10 index (with which I took all the photos). The new model, in addition to increasing the matrix to 10 megapixels, added the ability to shoot video in 720p format. Otherwise, there are no changes: 10x optical zoom, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar optics, Bionz processor.

Nearby, the company's senior ultrazoom, model HX1, was presented. It uses a 20x zoom lens, CMOS sensor has a resolution of 9.1 megapixels. Among the features: shooting up to 10 frames per second, recording Full HD-video (1440x1080), panoramic mode, in which frames are "glued" automatically (you just need to move the camera from the first to the last frame of the future panorama), as well as a display with adjustable tilt angle .

Compacts are primarily liked by their design and dimensions. Looking at such a camera, you just want to buy it and put it in your inner pocket - so that it is. That's what it is, "magic". In addition, the ability to shoot 720p video is also implemented here.

I won't say much about video cameras. At the booth, in addition to HDD and cameras on flash memory, I remember the updated TG5 compact, which added built-in memory (16 GB), otherwise everything remained the same: a titanium case, a touch rotary display, 1080i video recording and sound in 5.1 format.< /p>

The booths demonstrated technologies such as motion compensation and detection of multiple faces in a frame. On large TVs, you could see these chips in action. We live in a beautiful time, and technology has finally grown to capture our life with high quality.

Let's move on - we find ourselves in the realm of TVs. I will not plunge into the variety of rulers and representatives, there will not be enough time for this. Let's take a quick look at how Sony is going to stand out from the competition.

Firstly, it's Motionflow 200 Hertz technology, which provides a smooth image of fast-moving objects. You could see the action with your own eyes on the example of the KDL-46Z4500 TV.

At the spinning stand was a Bravia ZX1 TV, according to the manufacturer, the thinnest 40-inch LCD TV (0.99 cm thick). It uses Edge LED technology, Motionflow at 100 Hertz - it's a shame that until now the buyer will have to choose between different bells and whistles, give preference to only a part of them, I would like to have everything in one case, especially in such a really thin one.

To organize a home theater, Sony suggests using one of the projectors, and for sounding the picture, a home theater kit or separate speakers, which were also presented at the exhibition.

A separate composition was devoted to Blu-Ray films, finally their assortment reached a sufficient number (despite the fact that only films from film studios owned by Sony were presented here). It was especially noted that many pictures appear in Blu-Ray version simultaneously with the DVD release.

Not without the Playstation. A rest area where you could rest on the ottomans and run a couple of levels in Killzone2 and Uncharted, as well as drive a few laps of GT5: Prologue was very handy.

This is the world of Sony. You can love him or not. But it is impossible not to notice it.

Canon

Let's switch to another manufacturer, let's look at compacts from Canon.

Let's start with the simplest - the Powershot a480 models. A regular 10-megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom and various body colors.

The next device is also a soap dish, but somewhat more advanced than the previous version. It uses the next version of the proprietary processor - DIGIC4, 12.1-megapixel module. But the main feature is the case - it is waterproof, the D10 was demonstrated just like that, at the bottom of an impromptu aquarium.

Next - Xus, a representative of the compact series, the IXUS 990 model. This is a 12.1-megapixel compact in a metal case with a 5x optical zoom and the ability to shoot video at a resolution of 1280x720 (30 fps).

Next in line is the IXUS 100, one of the lower end of the line of stylish models. Despite being one of the smaller models, it has all the proprietary technology found in the series, plus 720p HD video shooting.

But in the Canon line there are also models that combine the features of different cameras, for example, the PowerShot SX200 is a wide-angle ultrazoom (not the maximum, but a respectable 12x optical zoom), can record HD video, is available with several options body colors.

The series of senior compact cameras is represented by the PowerShot SX10 ultrazoom, as well as traditionally the most powerful camera from the G series - the PowerShot G10. The first of two wide-angle cameras has a 10-megapixel sensor and a 20x zoom lens; the second device, G10, presents a wide range of possibilities for users. They have a 14.7 megapixel sensor, a 3-inch display, an optical photofinder, and support for RAW format.

Once you decide which of the many cameras suits you, you will probably think that it would be nice to print the most successful photos somewhere. Canon offers a solution: compact sublimation printers. Two such devices were presented at the company's booth - SELPHY ES3 (ES30) and SELPHY CP770 printers. Both printers have a fairly compact design, carrying handles, built-in tools for simple image adjustments. They seem to show by their appearance that they are ready to help materialize your talented pictures with all their might.

Canon video lovers have something to offer, too.

Buyers who are not ready to sacrifice quality are advised to pay attention to the LEGRIA HF20 model. Full HD video is saved to an SDHC card or internal memory (here up to 32 GB). The DIGIC DV III processor is responsible for the quality, which, thanks to a lens with a 15x optical zoom, and a proprietary optical stabilizer, guarantees high-quality video recording.

The LEGRIA FS200 is perfect for those who love long shots. For this, an "intelligent battery" is used here, the capacity of which is enough for 3.5 hours of operation, and just 20 minutes of recharging is enough for an additional hour of shooting. The camera shoots SD-video, SDHC cards act as a carrier (up to 10 hours of video will fit on 16 GB media). One of the main features is a 41x extended zoom, as well as the ability to shoot in low-light environments (up to 1.1 lux).

LEGRIA HF S10 is positioned as a solution worthy of professionals. This Full HD camera shoots to an SDHC card or built-in memory (this model has up to 32 GB). An 8-megapixel CMOS sensor, an optical 10x zoom and an optical stabilizer controlled by a DIGIC DVIII processor are responsible for the quality. This camcorder has a custom mode dial as well as advanced custom settings.

But first, let's get acquainted with the cameras. The company at its booth demonstrates both representatives of last year's line and models that have replaced them.

We will not focus on ordinary soap dishes, I will only note that among them there are models with both a standard lens and a widescreen one.

Two models look interesting. The Z8612 is an 8-megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuzernah Variogon optics and a 12x optical zoom (can also be used when shooting VGA video). High-quality photos are obtained through the use of a number of proprietary technologies, as well as the presence of a manual mode.

Second upscale camera: The Z980 uses a 24x wide-angle zoom lens. You can also zoom during video shooting, recording in 720p format is supported here. A feature of the camera is the presence of two release buttons on the body: for landscape and portrait shooting, respectively. There is also a detachable vertical grip handle for more comfortable portrait photography. Plus on the body there is a shoe for connecting the flash. The novelty is expected to be released in May.

And finally, two compact HD camcorders. The main, rather fundamental, difference between these two models is that the Zi6 camera, which has been sold abroad for a long time, will not be officially delivered to our country. Unlike the Zx1, which should start shipping in May.

The second camera differs from its predecessor primarily in the case: the filling is dressed in a "weather-resistant case" - the presence of an IP43 certificate implies protection from splashes and dirt. There is also an HDMI port for connecting the camera to a TV. The camera itself has become more compact and slightly lighter, which affected the display, it had to be reduced - here it has a diagonal of 2 inches (in the Zi6 model, the screen had a diagonal of 2.6 inches). The lens remained the same, but if the Zi6, in addition to the standard one, had a macro mode (focusing from 5 cm), it was removed in the Zx6. SDHC cards are used as a storage device (the amount of built-in memory is 120 MB).

In general, an interesting camera aimed at young people involved in extreme sports.

Of course, there were many other companies whose devices deserve attention, for example, these are headphones from companies such as AKG, Sennheiser. I will give photos of some of them without comments.

So, in this article I will describe my impressions about the stands and the products presented on them. Not all companies will be here, I did not set myself the goal of describing all the representatives, only some companies and devices that interested me personally.

Seryozha described everything very beautifully in his article about pieces of Sonystyle. I also want to note this fact - Sonystyle is really felt everywhere. Yes, he was everywhere, almost every corner sounded Sonystyle, however, it was about a store, the company actively advertises its decision to "buy Sony y Sony". Many of the devices that could be studied during the days of the exhibition have not yet appeared on the general sale, however, it is already possible to place a pre-order in the online store.

First of all, the updated photo frames are shown to us at the Sony booth. The new models (DPF-X1000 and DPF-X800) have received a new technology that has improved the contrast and brightness value. The company also actively advertises the ability to connect to a TV (using the HDMI interface), by the way, for this, all uploaded photos are automatically compressed to Full HD format. Another feature is the ability to display panoramic shots taken with the new Sony DSC-HX1 ultrazoom. The automatic flip of the image from horizontal to vertical position has not gone anywhere, as well as the ability to transfer files via Bluetooth (the USB module is still an option).

Next are the company's laptops. Unfortunately, nothing fundamentally new was presented at the stand from Vaio laptops, updates are planned only by the summer, and this time it was possible to evaluate the devices of the current generation. However, the company has something to show: for example, games with style, attractive contours and curls.

It was especially noted that many pictures appear in Blu-Ray-performance simultaneously with the release of DVD.

Not without the Playstation. A rest area where you could rest on the ottomans and run a couple of levels in Killzone2 and Uncharted, as well as drive a few laps of GT5: Prologue was very handy.

This is the world of Sony. You can love him or not. But it is impossible not to notice it.

This camcorder has a custom mode dial as well as advanced custom settings.

In conclusion, a few photos of Canon's consumer and professional printers and scanners, the company is not a leader in the home photo lab segments, however, it updates its line of devices year after year.

Kodak

I went to the Kodak booth to gawk at the compact camcorders aimed at young people that were being unveiled at CES in America earlier this year.

But first, let's get acquainted with the cameras. The company at its booth demonstrates both representatives of last year's line and models that have replaced them.

We will not focus on ordinary soap dishes, I will only note that among them there are models with both a standard lens and a widescreen one.

Over time, the format of the exhibition has changed a little, of course, Suit for Men-Blue It is worth considering the financial situation and everything that is going on in the world, however, this has drastically affected the number of pavilions, the approaches of companies.

For starters, I would like to say that HDI and the Photoforum have become practically inseparable - the stands of photo companies are adjacent to representatives of the HDI exhibition. Large manufacturers did not build separate stands at all - the existing compositions have separate sections dedicated to photography, at the same time, home theaters, video cameras, a huge number of laptops, etc. are presented in the neighboring sector.

Moreover, a couple of times, walking between the rows, I managed to become a witness to the conversations of company representatives that the exhibition did not suit them, did not fulfill their hopes. At the Sennhaiser booth it was so bluntly said: "No, next year we will no longer be exhibiting."

However, some companies did not erect stands this year either.

Neither Panasonic nor Samsung were present at the exhibition, there were no stands of Toshiba, Philips either.

The entire exhibition was held under the auspices of Sony. I won’t be surprised if the company decides in the future to organize something like a Sony day specifically for technology lovers, while the list of companies wishing to exhibit will be reduced to a minimum, but the number of those wishing to look at new products and technologies, albeit only one brand, is still will be large enough.

So, in this article I will describe my impressions about the stands and the products presented on them. Not all companies will be here, I did not set myself the goal of describing all the representatives, only some companies and devices that interested me personally.

Seryozha described everything very beautifully in his article about pieces of Sonystyle. I also want to note this fact - Sonystyle is really felt everywhere. Yes, he was everywhere, almost every corner sounded Sonystyle, however, it was about a store, the company actively advertises its decision to "buy Sony y Sony". Many of the devices that could be studied during the days of the exhibition have not yet appeared on the general sale, however, it is already possible to place a pre-order in the online store.

First of all, the updated photo frames are shown to us at the Sony booth. The new models (DPF-X1000 and DPF-X800) have received a new technology that has improved the contrast and brightness value. The company also actively advertises the ability to connect to a TV (using the HDMI interface), by the way, for this, all uploaded photos are automatically compressed to Full HD format. Another feature is the ability to display panoramic shots taken with the new Sony DSC-HX1 ultrazoom. The automatic flip of the image from horizontal to vertical position has not gone anywhere, as well as the ability to transfer files via Bluetooth (the USB module is still an option).

Next are the company's laptops. Unfortunately, nothing fundamentally new was presented at the stand from Vaio laptops, updates are planned only by the summer, and this time it was possible to evaluate the devices of the current generation. However, the company has something to show: for example, games with style, attractive contours and curls. The small (and cute) "Pishka" looks very harmonious in this environment, showing with all its appearance that "I am also Sony".

As for the music players, of course, the granite x1000 dominates here, which could easily be studied from all sides. The musical theme continues in the headphone player (which was already mentioned in Sergey's article), as well as in other representatives of the Walkman line. Of course, Rolly has not gone anywhere (this is not surprising - everyone is still watching him closely, smiling at the cheerful dances). Personally, I was also attracted by the new headphones (I will talk with Serezha to contribute to a future review of some of the presented models).

The overall style of the devices is really striking. It is no wonder that the company has so many admirers, and many of them have such a hobby as "furnishing the whole apartment with these devices." It has been said more than once, but I repeat: only one company, Apple, evokes similar devotion, but the Japanese, unlike the Americans, also produce photo frames, cameras, camcorders, are actively involved in the film business and the gaming industry. So you can easily immerse yourself and live in this world without experiencing any particular inconvenience.

The next section could be called "about the life of concepts". Last year, during the demonstration of the first commercial OLED TV with a diagonal of 11 inches, a stunning image and an incredible price, there was talk that it was unlikely to appear on official sale in Russia - at that time they expected the release of a 26-inch OLED TV, sales should have started right away. This time, again, last year's 11-inch XEL-1 was presented at the booth, a larger sample of the display flaunted in the frame (it looks like a 22-inch diagonal screen), and behind the glass was demonstrated the world's thinnest OLED display with a thickness of only 0.3 mm , but this is more of a demonstration of the technology, I think it will take a couple more years to translate it into real devices.

Next, I will talk about other innovations that are equally exciting and, most importantly, they are much closer to publication.

Turning around the corner, we find ourselves in the section of digital compacts and ultrazooms of the company. First of all, the young man hurries to tell us about the new technology of automatic shooting - the autophotographer. Everything has been implemented so far only in the demo version, but the general meaning is more or less clear (unlike the application). The process involves the camera and docking station, which automatically pans and tilts the camera to capture the best angle for capturing faces in the frame. The docking station is also responsible for processing the resulting images. To be honest, I didn’t see much practical application in this: such shooting is not suitable for photographing the environment, for example, in nature, the camera only clicks on faces. The manufacturer positions such a solution for photographing friends at a party.

Two recording devices are shown side by side. One compact one, which allows you to "cut" a film from a camera into a disc without a computer. The modest size pleases here, the lack of HD-video support is a little frustrating. For these purposes, another device, its dimensions are somewhat larger, however, the functionality is higher. In addition to the main functions - recording high-quality video (1080p) to a disk - there is a video input (tulips), with it you can connect a VCR and digitize old cassettes, along with upscaling to a resolution of 1920x1080.

Next we head to the cameras. Among ultrazooms, I would like to note two models. The first is the H20, the logical continuation is the camera with the H10 index (with which I took all the photos). The new model, in addition to increasing the matrix to 10 megapixels, added the ability to shoot video in 720p format. Otherwise, there are no changes: 10x optical zoom, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar optics, Bionz processor.

Nearby, the company's senior ultrazoom, model HX1, was presented. It uses a 20x zoom lens, CMOS sensor has a resolution of 9.1 megapixels. Among the features: shooting up to 10 frames per second, recording Full HD-video (1440x1080), panoramic mode, in which frames are "glued" automatically (you just need to move the camera from the first to the last frame of the future panorama), as well as a display with adjustable tilt angle .

Compacts are primarily liked by their design and dimensions. Looking at such a camera, you just want to buy it and put it in your inner pocket - so that it is. That's what it is, "magic". In addition, the ability to shoot 720p video is also implemented here.

I won't say much about video cameras. At the booth, in addition to HDD and cameras on flash memory, I remember the updated TG5 compact, which added built-in memory (16 GB), otherwise everything remained the same: a titanium case, a touch rotary display, 1080i video recording and sound in 5.1 format.< /p>

The booths demonstrated technologies such as motion compensation and detection of multiple faces in a frame. On large TVs, you could see these chips in action. We live in a beautiful time, and technology has finally grown to capture our life with high quality.

Let's move on - we find ourselves in the realm of TVs. I will not plunge into the variety of rulers and representatives, there will not be enough time for this. Let's take a quick look at how Sony is going to stand out from the competition.

Firstly, it's Motionflow 200 Hertz technology, which provides a smooth image of fast-moving objects. You could see the action with your own eyes on the example of the KDL-46Z4500 TV.

On the rotating stand was a Bravia ZX1 TV, according to the manufacturer, the thinnest 40-inch LCD TV (0.99 cm thick). It uses Edge LED technology, Motionflow at 100 Hertz - it's a shame that until now the buyer will have to choose between different bells and whistles, give preference to only a part of them, I would like to have everything in one case, especially in such a really thin one.

To organize a home theater, Sony suggests using one of the projectors, and for sounding the picture - a home theater kit or separate speakers, which were also presented at the exhibition.

A separate composition was devoted to Blu-Ray films, finally their assortment reached a sufficient number (despite the fact that only films from film studios owned by Sony were presented here). It was especially noted that many pictures appear in Blu-Ray version simultaneously with the DVD release.

Not without the Playstation. A rest area where you could rest on the ottomans and run a couple of levels in Killzone2 and Uncharted, as well as drive a few laps of GT5: Prologue was very handy.

This is the world of Sony. You can love him or not. But it is impossible not to notice it.

Canon

Let's switch to another manufacturer, let's look at compacts from Canon.

Let's start with the simplest - the Powershot a480 models. A regular 10-megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom and various body colors.

The next device is also a soap dish, but somewhat more advanced than the previous version. It uses the next version of the proprietary processor - DIGIC4, 12.1-megapixel module. But the main feature is the case - it is waterproof, the D10 was demonstrated just like that, at the bottom of an impromptu aquarium.

Next - Xus, a representative of the compact series, the IXUS 990 model. This is a 12.1-megapixel compact in a metal case with a 5x optical zoom and the ability to shoot video at a resolution of 1280x720 (30 fps).

Next in line is the IXUS 100, one of the lower end of the line of stylish models. Despite being one of the smaller models, it has all the proprietary technology found in the series, plus 720p HD video shooting.

But in the Canon line there are also models that combine the features of different cameras, for example, the PowerShot SX200 is a wide-angle ultrazoom (not the maximum, but a respectable 12x optical zoom), can record HD video, is available with several options body colors.

The series of senior compact cameras is represented by the PowerShot SX10 ultrazoom, as well as traditionally the most powerful camera from the G series - the PowerShot G10. The first of two wide-angle cameras has a 10-megapixel sensor and a 20x zoom lens; the second device, G10, presents a wide range of possibilities for users. They have a 14.7 megapixel sensor, a 3-inch display, an optical photofinder, and support for RAW format.

Once you decide which of the many cameras suits you, you will probably think that it would be nice to print the most successful photos somewhere. Canon offers a solution: compact sublimation printers. Two such devices were presented at the company's booth - SELPHY ES3 (ES30) and SELPHY CP770 printers. Both printers have a fairly compact design, carrying handles, built-in tools for simple image adjustments. They seem to show with their appearance that they are ready to help materialize your talented pictures with all their might.

Canon video lovers have something to offer, too.

Buyers who are not ready to sacrifice quality are advised to pay attention to the LEGRIA HF20 model. Full HD video is saved to an SDHC card or internal memory (here up to 32 GB). The DIGIC DV III processor is responsible for the quality, which, thanks to a lens with a 15x optical zoom, and a proprietary optical stabilizer, guarantees high-quality video recording.

The LEGRIA FS200 is perfect for those who love long shots. For this, an "intelligent battery" is used here, the capacity of which is enough for 3.5 hours of operation, and just 20 minutes of recharging is enough for an additional hour of shooting. The camera shoots SD-video, SDHC cards act as a carrier (up to 10 hours of video will fit on 16 GB media). One of the main features is a 41x extended zoom, as well as the ability to shoot in low-light environments (up to 1.1 lux).

LEGRIA HF S10 is positioned as a solution worthy of professionals. This Full HD camera shoots to an SDHC card or built-in memory (this model has up to 32 GB). An 8-megapixel CMOS sensor, an optical 10x zoom and an optical stabilizer controlled by a DIGIC DVIII processor are responsible for the quality. This camcorder has a custom mode dial as well as advanced custom settings.

In conclusion, a few photos of Canon's consumer and professional printers and scanners, the company is not a leader in the home photo lab segments, however, it updates its line of devices year after year.

Kodak

I went to the Kodak booth to gawk at the compact camcorders aimed at young people that were being unveiled at CES in America earlier this year.

But first, let's get acquainted with the cameras. The company at its booth demonstrates both representatives of last year's line and models that have replaced them.

We will not focus on ordinary soap dishes, I will only note that among them there are models with both a standard lens and a widescreen one.

Two models look interesting. The Z8612 is an 8-megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuzernah Variogon optics and a 12x optical zoom (can also be used when shooting VGA video). High-quality photos are obtained through the use of a number of proprietary technologies, as well as the presence of a manual mode.

Second upscale camera: The Z980 uses a 24x wide-angle zoom lens. You can also zoom during video shooting, recording in 720p format is supported here. A feature of the camera is the presence of two release buttons on the body: for landscape and portrait shooting, respectively. There is also a detachable vertical grip handle for more comfortable portrait photography. Plus on the body there is a shoe for connecting the flash. The novelty is expected to be released in May.

In general, an interesting camera aimed at young people involved in extreme sports.

Of course, there were many other companies whose devices deserve attention, for example, these are headphones from companies such as AKG, Sennheiser. I will give photos of some of them without comments.

HDI.Photoforum 2009

I have been going to this pair of exhibitions for the third year in a row. Over time, the trip has become a kind of habit - to visit Crocus Expo in mid-April to see what manufacturers of televisions, blu-ray, photo and video cameras, as well as all other devices are ready to offer for the near future. On duty, on my last two visits, I was more interested in HD technology and everything related to high definition. And if a couple of years ago HD cameras and healthy Full HD TVs (at affordable prices) only loomed on the horizon, today it is already the widest market, primarily in terms of assortment, and for the most diverse consumer.

First of all, the updated photo frames are shown to us at the Sony booth. The new models (DPF-X1000 and DPF-X800) have received a new technology that has improved the contrast and brightness value.

And finally, two compact HD camcorders. The main, rather fundamental, difference between these two models is that the Zi6 camera, which has been sold abroad for a long time, will not be officially delivered to our country. Unlike the Zx1, which should start shipping in May.

The second camera differs from its predecessor primarily in the case: the filling is dressed in a "weather-resistant case" - the presence of an IP43 certificate implies protection from splashes and dirt. There is also an HDMI port for connecting the camera to a TV. The camera itself has become more compact and slightly lighter, which affected the display, it had to be reduced - here it has a diagonal of 2 inches (in the Zi6 model, the screen had a diagonal of 2.6 inches). The lens remained the same, but if the Zi6, in addition to the standard one, had a macro mode (focusing from 5 cm), it was removed in the Zx6. SDHC cards are used as a storage device (the amount of built-in memory is 120 MB).

In general, an interesting camera aimed at young people involved in extreme sports.

Of course, there were many other companies whose devices deserve attention, for example, these are headphones from companies such as AKG, Sennheiser. I will give photos of some of them without comments.
