Canon new tilt-shift lens TS-E 24 3.5L II and 17 4L up for pre-Order, costly as expected.

Canon new tilt-shift lens TS-E 24 3.5L II and 17 4L up for pre-Order, costly as expected.

Canon may have slowly losing its professional-ground in DSLR camera’s market, but not in optics department. From the last few years, they have redesigned, and in most cases, introduced a variety of premium L-prime from 800mm 5.6L, 200mm F2.0L IS, 85mm II 1.2L , 50mm II 1.2L to a decently pair of 17mm and 24mm tilt-shirt lens.

If you were an architecture or a landscape photographer, you would love that 17mm Tilt-Shirt lens. Pairing it with the cheapest 21mp available -- 5D mark II -- would result in the world’s widest 35mm format angle of view setup; but as expected, the new L glasses will cost you an arm and a leg as usual. They are up at Amazon for pre-order and are priced at $2,499 and $2199 for the 17mm and 24mm II, respectively.

In today’s image sensor standard, image qualities are nearly identical from one technology to another, availability of glasses is more important, at least to me. The 17mm tilt shift godness really got me thinking about robbing a bank or two. ( smiley )

Windows 7 on Gigabyte M912 touchscreen netbook

Windows 7 on Gigabyte M912 touchscreen netbook

The Windows 7 testing continues, with Gigabyte's M912 convertible touchscreen netbook the latest to have some playtime with Microsoft's new pre-beta OS.  Actual test results are pretty sparse right now, but UMPC Fever have been recording start-up and shut-down times which give a good indication of how usable the OS might be on the tablet.  Booting into Windows 7 on the M912 takes roughly 1 minute 11 seconds, while shutdown is around 32 seconds.

ASUS N10 netbook goes luxe, drops Eee branding

ASUS N10 netbook goes luxe, drops Eee branding

ASUS' latest netbook has been revealed, the N10, and just like the S101 launched earlier this month it won't be carrying the Eee brand.  It's a step in the luxury direction for the company's netbooks, competing more with HP's Mini-Note 2133, with a classier casing, 10.2-inch display running at 1024 x 768 and speakers courtesy of Altec Lansing.

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

It's become somewhat traditional to start the week's review with what's happening in the netbook world, a niche that's arguably the fastest developing right now in consumer tech.  Fujitsu kicked things off with the proclamation that budget ultraportables "don't add up" and that the current race to the bottom line doesn't give manufacturers enough room to make profit; Fujitsu were rumored the week before to be planning a netbook of their own, only with the emphasis on build quality rather than solely the price tag.  Sony also picked up a few netbook-in-progress rumors, tipped for Q4 2008, and HP revealed that they're working on a follow-up to the 2133 Mini-Note that will be less sturdy but also less expensive.

LG, too, are said to have a netbook in the works, with a model tentatively named X110 running Intel's Atom CPU and made for them by MSI.  It's uncertain whether, if this turns out to be true, the X110 would be a rebadge of the MSI Wind or a whole new design.  Finally, ASUS confirmed they wouldn't be letting up the pressure as firm most associated with the segment; there's talk of an "all day" battery and cloud storage option for release later on in 2008.

Flybook V5 ultraportable HSDPA Tablet PC officially available in US

The Flybook V5 ultraportable Tablet PC isn't exactly new - in fact we first saw it reviewed this time last year - but it's so far only been available in the US through importers such as iCube.  Now manufacturer Dialogue are officially selling it, with a top-whack price tag of $2,900.  For that you get a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV U7600 processor, 4GB of RAM and an 80GB hard-drive, packed into a compact 2.6lb chassis with 8.9-inch touchscreen.

Acer Aspire One budget ultraportable joins the fray

Feel free to groan and say "not another one"; photos purporting to be Acer's challenge to the Eee/Wind/2133/etc range of budget ultraportables have shown up, together with some basic spec details.  Believed to be called the Aspire One, the notebook has an 8.9-inch, 1024 X 768 display.  It also, apparently, runs Windows XP SP3 and is estimated to come in at €299.

SlashGear Week in Review – May 11th

This week's highlight has been the SlashGear team knuckling down to cover HTC's London launch of the Touch Diamond smartphone.  Our hands-on video of the Windows Mobile 6.1 device is pulling in some serious views, so if the thought of a 3G iPhone is leaving you cold then you need to be checking out the competition.

Meanwhile, budget ultraportables continued their onslaught, with pre-order pricing for both MSI's Wind and HP's XP version of the 2133 Mini-Note announced.  ASUS hasn't been letting the grass grow under them either, confirming that the Eee PC 900 will hit the US on May 12th.  Slightly bigger, word of Dell's upcoming Inspiron 1435, 1535 and 1735 ranges leaked, bringing with them some of the XPS' specs including optional 3G and Blu-ray.
