Canon Powershot SD 700 IS (Image Stabilization) Reviews

Posted in Gadgets on the December 27th, 2006

Canon SD700 IS
The Canon SD700 IS can proudly claim that it is the first Canon point and shoot camera with Image Stabilization. Image Stabilization proves to be a very useful feature, especially for amateurs like myself the Alligator. Image Stabilization results cannot be seen clearly in a brightly lit environment since the shutter speed is quick but in night shots the image stabilizer is a life saver. The SD700 IS is capable of 6 mega pixels and has a generous 4x optical zoom. The camera also features a ISO 800 mode for low light shooting but the results are usually noisy in very low light.
The Powershot SD700 IS has a very solid feel and is compact enough to slip in the trouser pocket. The controls are very well laid out but the power button could be refined a little more. Other features include a widescreen mode and the ability to shoot a high quality video at 60 fps. Overall the Alligator gives this little Digital ELPH a thumbs up!

Nintendo DS Lite
Cheaper than a Playstation and with looks of an iPod, the DS Lite is considered by many as the best handheld gaming device. It sold more than 13 million devices. The device has dual screens with the lower screen being a touchscreen. The touchscreen has taken gaming to the next level. Although the graphics might not be as great as the PSP but the games are certainely more enjoyable and fun.

The device also has a built in 802.11b wireless and playing games with people around the world is totally free. There is also an internet browser in the works by Opera. The browser will be available as an add-on catridge for approximately 32 USD. Japanese DS owners will also have the capability of watching TV on their device by getting a TV tuner card. Alligator would like to give two thumbs up to Nintendo for doing a great job.

Sony DVD Walkman
A company that has always been at the forefront of technology is a little slow on this one. Sony has introduced the D-VE7000S and DVP-FX810 DVD Walkmans. These walkmans are nothing more than portable DVD players with a 7 inch screen which have long been in the market. Also these DVD Walkmans do not support DivX or Xvid. Do you want one?

According to this link Nintendo Revolution will be cheaper than Xbox 360 and probably cheaper than PS3. Is Nintendo sacrificing some features to keep their price low? Since $400 Xbox 360’s sold out almost instantly, will people really care to drop out some features to get a cheaper console?
