TRIO AWARDS 08 / CAMERAS & CAMCORDERS

Which Are The Best Cameras/Camcorders?

By Mike Wheeler | Tuesday | 10/06/2008

The Smarthouse team looks at the latest technologies in the digi-camera industries. These new technologies no only give you memories of a life time, but ones that will never fade...

BEST DIGITAL SLR CAMERA

Sony
Alpha 350


RRP From $1,399

Most digital SLR (single lens reflex) cameras have been unable to let you frame your photos via an LCD viewer, however the new Alpha has overcome that obstacle, so you don't need to squint through the viewfinder to take shots like a pro. Add excellent construction and build, an easy to navigate interface and image stabilisation tech for a great DSLR.

BEST DIGITAL COMPACT CAMERA


Canon
IXUS 80IS

RRP $379

Most compact camera users will want something that takes decent photos, even on Auto mode, is reasonably priced and most importantly is easy to use. The new Canon Ixus ticks all those boxes - it's quick to start-up, easy to use and has a suite of features designed to make photography a little simpler. Its price tag is appealing too.

 

BEST CAMCORDER

Panasonic
SD9

RRP $2,299

We loved this camcorder's predecessor - the SD5 - and this one is even better. Firstly it is able to record 1920 x 1080p HD footage (as opposed to 1080i) and secondly it comes bundled with 32GB of flash memory. And if you're really camera-happy you can burn your movies to DVD via the included DVD burner. With HDMI and plenty of proprietary image technologies in-built, you get a very well rounded video camera.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
