Is this camera as good as it looks?

My digital camera died and I'm in the market for a new one. I was always leaving my old one at home because it was not slim enough to fit comfortably in my pocket. So I'm looking for a really slim one. I just found info on the Samsung Digimax #1. It looks so cool.

Can anyone tell me more about this camera? I could not find, for example, the actual zoom in any of the specs. Or the price when it comes out on June 1st. I’m totally okay spending a little more for a slim camera or a cool looking camera but I want to make sure it works well. Ideally, I’d pre-order it so I’d get it in time for an event on June 11th.

Best way to carry multiple Canon dSLR batteries in camera bag?

I've moved from a low end digital camera recently to the 1st generation Canon Rebel dSLR. The old camera took AA battery's so there was tons of advice out there on how best to store them so you don't short anything out, and sort them so you know which have been used at a glance. personally i liked using little plastic carriers that held two each - when i used the batteries (but before i re-charged them) i would flip one so the pos/neg ends were opposite (did that make sense?) Anyone have any suggestions of a way to achieve the same with propritary batteries like canon's? To sum up: a) how to carry them w/o worrying about shorting out or knocking around in the camera bag, and b) quick way to know which ones are dead and which are good. Thanks!

Digital Picture Frames

What's your verdict on digital picture frames? I have been largely unimpressed until I came across this -- a steep investment but tempting nonetheless for a photophile like me. Right now, I'm loving the slide show screensaver on my PC but it still sits there in the office, apart from the mainstream of the house. I have more than 10,000 images and it would be nice to display them dynamically in a classy setting. Tiny table top frames just don't seem to cut it. Would I be throwing too much at this? What works for you?

LCD Discrepancy?

When taking photos with my digital camera (Canon Powershot A75) images often look great on the LCD and then not-so-great when I actually get them onto my computer. Most notably, when taking B&W photos in relatively low-light they will look fantastic on the LCD and then just BLACK on my computer. I can usually make the image sort-of useable by photoshoping the levels, but then it gets real grainy. Is there anything that I can do to get a more accurate preview from the LCD or do I just have to accept the fact that it lies? Tips on dealing with this? [more inside]

Digital Camera

I have about $150-$200 to spend on my first digital camera and have no idea what to buy. I am looking for 3+ megapixels and an optical zoom, portability, good memory and battery and nothing too complicated. Basically just for family stuff, but my old automatic was some big fancy thing that took awesome shots, so I am a little spoiled.

Digital Video Camcorder Recommendations?

Can anyone recommend a good digital camcorder for consumer use? Google/Froogle aren't much help to me since I don't even really know what to look for. It is for typical home-movies-of-the-kids type stuff, and price is a big consideration. Also, what features are important?

Help me find a specific clock for my house...

Some years ago I saw a clock, which appeared to be made from 'valves' sticking out of a metal block...inside the valves was an old fashioned illuminated number. So the clock was digital, with old fashioned (think 60's space programme) orange was quite expensive, and now I have gainful employment and a half-decent house to put in, I want to track one down. Any ideas?

Digital photography workflow on a Macintosh

I am a Macintosh user who has just acquired a Nikon D70 digital SLR. Most of my photography experience is with film-based equipment; I have no experience maintaining a collection of digital photos. The software bundled with the camera seems questionable, and iPhoto drives me nuts. What do other amateur (or professional) photographers use to manage their photographs? Will iPhoto do the job? What habits should I develop? What software should I use? Any tips or tricks to help ease me into the world of digital photography?

Which manufacturers make well-built home theater equipment at a reasonable price?

Over the past several years, I have been burned by poor quality in home electronics from various manufacturers. I have purchased pieces by Sony (home stereo), Panasonic (theatre-in-a-box) and RCA (various pieces of junk), and all have given out in one way or another far too quickly for my liking. In a renewed attempt to build a proper home theatre system (DVD/CD, receiver, speakers, etc), and recognizing that I haven't the money for really high-end stuff but will avoid anything cheap, I seek outside opinions as to which manufacturers are making products that are of reasonable quality, and reasonably priced. Your experiences, please.

Future-proof cameras- film or digital?

I own a digital point-and-shoot camera, and was looking to upgrade to a "nicer" camera for some more ambitious photography. But I was wondering if it makes sense to spend a lot on a digital camera, as it seemingly will be a bit archaic, if not outright obsolete, in a few years. E.g., old Leicas or even manual Nikons still fetch fair amounts on Ebay, while digital cameras a few years old sell for a fraction of their original value. I know digital cameras are supposed to making analog obsolete, but I'm just wondering about the obsolescence factor of digital. In other words, should I buy the new digital Leica or a vintage analog Leica? Any thoughts?

DIY Video

Just say for instance - I had an MP3 (or some MP3's) and I wanted to create my own video, maybe with bits of video footage from a variety of sources, and some 'slides' or 'captions' - and then burn that whole thing to a DVD that I could play in a nightclub. What would be good software (Win XP) that could facilitate this for me?

Shutter lag on digital cameras - normal?

Digital Cameras, again: So I got me a cute little camera, based on the recommendations here. But there's a serious lag time between when I press the button and the picture is taken, a half-second or so. That's not bad for portraits and landscape shots, but it's not OK for action shots. Is this typical for digital cameras, or should I take this one back and get another?

Recommnedations needed for binoculars with built-in digital camera

I'm considering buying a set of binoculars with built in Digital Camera. The Meade Capture View 1.3 has the features I think I want: Price < c$200; sd card expansion; 8-10 power; cheap & readily available batteries; at 1.3mp, better than vga resolution. i'm also considering the 2mp version. Pentax, Bushnell and Celestron are some other makers.

Anyone who has used these have any thoughts on "must have" or "avoid at all costs" features or manufactures? General recommendation?

Can anyone recommend a TV tuner for a Mac?

Can anyone recommend a TV tuner for a Mac? I have an iBook, so it has to be either a firewire or USB model (not a PC card), and i'm hoping to spend under a hundred bucks. I have no real interest in any TVR functions, as my hard drive is maxed out already and I have a TiVo at home. I'm at Dartmouth for a month - which is in the middle of nowhere - so it must be available online to be shipped immediately, preferably with expedited shipping.
