Online Shopping Fights Against the Credit Crunch25 November 2008 17:18:27
The high street may be all doom and gloom with talk of an imminent recession, but online retailers are still finding customers willing to spend their money.
Internet sales have grown dramatically in the last few years as consumers have become more confident about shopping online. It is predicted that in the last quarter of this year UK shoppers alone will spend over £13billion. How large a bite this will take out of high street retailers share of shoppers Christmas spending is not yet known, but undoubtedly with savvy consumers looking for better deals, the internet provides the ideal place for bargains.
HD Camcorders Go with a Flash18 November 2008 16:05:41
Flash memory only camcorders are smaller and lighter than their hard-disk, DVD or tape brethren.
For camcorders, 2008 will go down as the year that high-def units using flash memory only became viable options. Up until now these flash-only models suffered from a dearth of storage space, a real issue as high definition footage uses megabytes space rapidly. But with flash memory prices dropping quicker than investment banks at a cocktail party this situation is almost no more.
For this round-up we've brought together our two favourite flash-only high-def camcorders, Canon's HF11 and Sony's Handycam HDR-CX12, as well a standard-def unit capable of taking a spill of water or a splash of sand the Panasonic's SDR-SW20.
The Canon HF11 not only produces great quality footage but is the first high-def flash unit to feature enough in-the-box capacity for a decent length holiday, 32GB on-board and 16GB on an SDHC card.
While the Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 only comes with 16GB supplied on Memory Stick Pro Duo’s, it not only generates the requisite high quality video but has smile detection, which will fire off happy snaps every time it detects a smiling face, even if you're busy shooting Mad Max VI.
For a bit of variety we've thrown in the go anywhere Panasonic SDR-SW20. It may only be a standard definition model and rather limited in its capabilities, but its water resistance (up to 1.5m) and shock resistance (up to 1.2m) means that it can be taken to the beach without too much of a worry.
