Epson R-D1x digital rangefinder announced

Epson R-D1x digital rangefinder announced

It's saying a lot for the appeal of Epson's digital rangefinder cameras - and for the love photo-pros have for them - that Epson don't need to make all too many tweaks to their R-D1x to keep it appealing.  This latest incarnation has a new 2.5-inch LCD, SDHC support up to 32GB and the latest version of Epson's EDiART image processing system, together with an optional hand-grip, but the core specs remain the same.

ATP GPS PhotoFinder mini gets reviewed: slow geotagging

Geotagging and location-based services are fashionable right now, and if you have the right cameraphone then you could already be taking high-resolution shots with embedded GPS data.  If, though, you're using a standalone digital camera, it's far more unlikely that it has GPS built in; that's when something like ATP's GPS PhotoFinder mini steps in, a relatively cheap, standalone way to add location information to your photos.  OhGizmo have been trying the PhotoFinder mini out, and while it'll do what it claims on the box, you may find the drawbacks outweigh the benefits.

Viliv S5 MID gets video unboxing, walkthrough

After yesterday's Viliv S5 MID unboxing gallery, now comes the unboxing video together with a hands-on video.  The S5 is shaping up to be a very interesting device, with the portability and media functionality of a touchscreen PMP, but the flexibility of a MID.  Unlike some rivals, there's no shortage of ports, either; the S5 manages to fit in both a USB host and USB client port.

UMID M1 retail bundle: massive PSU, fiddly port adapters

If you've watched our two hands-on videos from MWC09 (here and here)you've probably seen all you can stomach of the UMID M1, but the company still has a few surprises in the shape of their retail bundle.  While the first batch of Korean M1 pre-orders - sold there as the mbook - have been recalled due to dodgy build-quality, that hasn't stopped the reviewers from detailing exactly what you get in with the mobile internet device.

Samsung NC20 with VIA Nano gets official

Samsung NC20 with VIA Nano gets official

In one of those moments where you forget exactly what's official news and what's simply been confirmed in a roundabout way, VIA have gleefully announced that the Samsung NC20 12.1-inch netbook uses their VIA Nano platform.  While we knew this all the way back in December 2008, and then again in previews and in pre-orders, we'll forgive Samsung and VIA simply because the NC20 looks such a promising machine.
