Hot shot Sony has tossed its hat into the digital camera industry's growing ultra-zoom market with the new Cyber-shot DSC-H1. Priced at $3,990, the 5.1-megapixel DSC-H1 camera is designed for photography enthusiasts. It comes with a 2.5-inch colour display, 32 megabytes of memory, movie-recording functions, manual modes and flexible auto focus, and a 12x optical zoom lens, which supports up to 24x digital zoom and panoramic focal lengths at 36mm to 432mm. Emulating the style of other ultra-zoom models from Kodak, Konica Minolta and Nikon, the DSC-H1's body is moulded in the form of a traditional single lens reflex camera with a bulky right-hand grip. The DSC-H1 comes with a unique Super Steady Shot, an optical image stabilisation system that counteracts camera shake to ensure sharp images every time. This also helps low-light photography by allowing slower shutter speeds, and reducing the risk of image blur from camera shake.? Tap dance To tap into wireless internet environments from the home and office to airports and coffee shops, users of notebook computers must get their A, B and G links in order. These are the high-speed, wireless networking standards - 802.11a, b and g - that have been installed in Hong Kong and abroad. Linksys has released its Dual-Band Wireless A+G Notebook Adapter for users to stay connected, whatever standard they encounter. It guarantees to deliver seamless, trouble-free roaming across the myriad wireless infrastructure. Just pop it into a PC Card slot and run the included Setup Wizard, which will walk you through the configuration. All wireless communications can be protected by up to 152-bit encryption, which makes the notebook adapter a definite bargain at $745.

Business call Samsung Electronics, as much a shrewd marketer as an adroit evaluator of design, has released a premium, clamshell mobile phone geared for business professionals - the Anycall E618. But instead of aiming the product at both sexes, Samsung has chosen to play up the black E618's 'masculine appearance'. Sporting a thin and light design, the phone measures 85x49.5x19.8mm and weighs only 84 grams. Samsung said the unique 'soft-feel' coating on the phone's surface would provide users with a more comfortable grip. It has two colour displays, 11 megabytes of built-in memory, a camera with flash, digital zoom, 64 polyphonic ring tones, personal information management software, talk time of up to three hours, and standby time of up to 130 hours. Priced at $4,280, the GPRS handset is an all-too-obvious attempt by Samsung to compete with Motorola's well-received Razr V3, another high-end clamshell mobile phone. Boxing clever With its new Wireless A+G Broadband Router, Linksys has moved to eliminate any confusion or incompatibility that consumers may have using wireless networking standards available in the market. Designed for use at home or in a small office, the Linksys box is a combination internet-sharing router and switch that supports the ubiquitous 802.11b wireless networking standard, at 11 megabits per second, plus the 802.11g and 802.11a standards, both at 54Mbps. Priced at $1,195, the router can encode all wireless transmissions with industrial-strength encryption called Wi-fi Protected Access. The device's address filter means users can decide who has access to the home wireless network. Configuration should be a snap with the router's web browser-based configuration utility. Users can then share a high-speed internet connection, files, printers and multiplayer games with the flexibility, speed and security they need. Thanks for the memory A professional-standard, 7.2-megapixel model leads the release of the W-Series Cyber-shot digital camera line from Sony. The DSC-W7 is equipped with Sony's patented Real Imaging Processor circuitry, offering fast start-up, response time and focus speed. It sells for $3,890 and features a professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 3x optical zoom. It is built with a 2.5-inch liquid crystal display and 16-shot index display for extra ease and comfort in taking and viewing images. The camera also features a multi-point auto focus system and seven pre-set scene modes - including twilight, twilight portrait, soft snap, landscape, beach, snow and candle - for flexible picture-taking. It supports Memory Stick and Memory Stick PRO storage media, but also has 32 megabytes of memory for back-up storage when the Memory Stick is full.
