At least in the parts of the internet I frequent, pet pictures have been enjoying an unusual popularity as of late. FujiFilm's Finepix Z700 has technology that snaps a photo when your furry friend smiles. Talk about capturing the zeitgeist.
In today's Remainders: tomorrow's news! Cisco's ushering in the next generation of internet with the CRS-3; Kempler & Strauss's futuristic PhoneWatch gets reviewed; geolocated Tweets; a WebKit-borrowing Firefox; an HTML 5 drawing app; Samsung's point and shoot prices, and more!
Panasonic has pulled the sheets off two new Lumix Micro Four Thirds cameras: the touchscreen DMC-G2 and the super light G10. Both shoot 720p video, but the G2's bendy, touch control screen makes it a Micro Four Thirds stand out.
Samsung's new TL500 is capable of shooting RAW with a crazy fast F1.8 lens and lets you view it all on a twisting AMOLED screen. It's possibly Samsung's best point-and-shoot ever, and it could be a Canon S90 killer.
Not to be upstaged by the TL500, the Samsung TL350 point-and-shoot offers its own unique bag of goodies: it shoots RAW, shoots video up to 1000fps, has an AMOLED display, and can capture 10MP stills while shooting 1080p video.
Samsung's AQ100 and SL605 are billed as being waterproof and durable, respectively, but they're really not all that waterproof and durable. Still, the AQ100 shoots 720p video on the cheap and can go for a dip, if not a dive.
