Imagine being able to display photos on your TV screen just by touching your digital camera to the TV--no more card readers or cables to fuss with. Today, Sony along with the likes of Canon, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung, and eight other big names in consumer electronics announced an agreement to form a consortium to develop a new interoperable wireless transfer technology standard called TransferJet.

Gadget geek Janice Chen delivers real-world buying advice of the best digital photography gear to get.
Janice got her hands on a Nikon Coolpix 900 back in 1998 and has been a digital camera enthusiast ever since.
Still touting its cameras as "the world's slimmest," this time Casio puts the claim on a digital camera with a wide-angle 4x optical zoom. The 8.1-megapixel EXILIM Zoom EX-Z150 sports a nice and wide 28- to 112mm (f/2.6 to 5.9) lens and is just 0.79 of an inch thick.
In a flurry of announcements this morning, Kodak released info on two new digital cameras: The EasyShare Z1015 IS, a 15x megazoom, and the EasyShare M1093 IS, a 10-megapixel compact point-and-shoot, both of which will ship in September.
Canon USA has finally announced U.S. pricing and availability for the long-rumored Canon EOS Rebel XS, its new entry-level dSLR which Canon officially announced in Japan on June 10. The 10-megapixel Rebel XS (available in black or silver) will ship in August and is available only in a kit version with the EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens.

If you ask the likes of Motorola and Sony Ericsson the answer is yes, of course. Both phone makers have recently announced camera phones with (relatively) high-resolution cameras that may be capable of replacing your point-and-shoot digital camera.
I was just trying to decide whether to include the Canon EOS Rebel XTi or XSi in a post on DSLRs to get for your dad (or grad) when today's Canon EOS Rebel XS announcement knocked both off the list.
The super-popular Flip Ultra's incredible success has inspired plenty of competition that wants to ride the cheapo camcorder tsunami that the Flip set off. So less than a year after the Flip Ultra's September 2007 release comes Pure Digital's latest Flip, the Flip Mino.
So now that Pentax has finally upgraded its waterproof camera line with yesterday's Optio W60 announcement, my big question is how does it compare to Olympus’ latest compact, point-and-shoot waterproofs, the Olympus Stylus 1030 SW and 850 SW.
I've been a fan of Eye-Fi's Wi-Fi enabled SD cards since they first came out late last year, so I'm excited to see the company has added two new cards to its product lineup. Here's a rundown of the offerings:
