For photography lovers with everything, here’s a few new camera gadgets to request for Christmas.
The Birdwatcher’s Motion Activated Camera. This weather-resistant 1.3 megapixel camera senses motion and can instantly capture up to 20 pictures in 20 seconds. The camera will sleep when there is no movement, and shuts off at night to save energy. So you can’t use it to catch Santa eating your cookies and milk on Christmas night. The camera costs about $200.
The Canon EOS Rebel T1i EF-S camera is a 15.1 megapixel digital SLR camera that can also shoot full HD video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution, with HDMI output for HD viewing of stills and video. With this camera and a good zoom image stabilizer lens, you will have great bird photos. The Canon sells for about $730 or $900 with an extra 55-250 mm zoom lens.
The Timelapse Garden Video Camera. This video camera will make a time-lapse video of your garden, plants and flowers. The camera takes a picture at one of six pre-determined intervals (five seconds to 24 hours), and combines them into a single 1280 x 1024 resolution AVI movie file for easy playback on a computer. This camera also turns off at dusk. It will take up to 18,000 pictures stored on a 2GB USB flash drive. This camera sells for about $160.
The LSD Video Screen Microscope. This new microscope replaces the standard microscope eyepiece with an LCD screen that displays objects at up to 1600X magnification. A built-in 2MP digital camera captures still images or videos and displays them. The microscope’s three objective lenses (4X, 10X, or 40X) provide magnification from 40X-400X (up to 1600X when used with its 4X digital zoom). The camera’s built-in 128 MB memory can store up to 120 still shots or up to 40 minutes of video at 1600 x 1200 resolution. An SD card slot allows for memory expansion. It sells for about $300.
