Samsung Electronics has announced customers in the UK are now able to buy the Galaxy NX, the world's first 4G interchangeable lens Connected Compact System Camera (CSC), from Jessops and Currys with selected online and high street retailers to follow….
Olympus has just announced two digital cameras that’ll be exclusive to photo retailer Jessops. One’s pictured over there to the right – that’s the X915 – and then there’s the X890 too.
The X915 wears the trousers, so let’s examine him first. A 12-megapixel sensor, 2.7″ LCD screen and 5x optical zoom are packed into a 137g body. It’s XD and MicroSD compatible, and there’s a red eye editing feature, too.
It’s slightly younger brother is the X890, which has to make do with its older brothers cast-offs. A 10-megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom and the same 2.7″ LCD are in the offing, as well as the aforementioned compatibility and editing settings.
The X915 costs £300 and the X890 costs £260. Both will be available on 21st February from your local Jessops.
Okay, let’s be honest here. Digital photo frames are a load of rubbish. They sit there consuming piles of energy, 24/7, and don’t actually look that brilliant. However, the great British public seems dead-set on buying them by the bucketload, and Jessops are capitalising on this by offering two of them for the budget price of just fifty sheets – that’s presents for two aunts knocked out in one fell swoop!
The frames in question cost £30 normally, measure 3.5″ corner-to-corner, and come with a slideshow facility, memory card slot, and functions to control colour, brightness and zoom. They also connect up to your PC so you can change the pictures on it with the greatest of ease. Sounds awful to you – but sounds brilliant to your mum.
