There are two main features, which makes the NEX VG10 videos superior to the other NEX series cameras. Firstly, cameras usually display 17 megabits of data per second during video recording .The VG10s are exceptional because they displays up to 24 megabits per second. Secondly, the user has more control over the camera. You can control the shutter speed, the aperture, the white balance and ISO sensitivity.

Just like other Sony cameras, the VG10s are also compatible with 21 other Alpha lenses of Sony. Unfortunately, the NEX-VG10 only provides JPEG images and does not capture images in RAW format.

Sony NEX-VG10 camcorders will be readily available in the market in early September for about $1999. You can get a full review of the product in September as well. This camera is gaining fame for its splendid auto focus facility.

DXG – 518V Digital Camcorder

DXG has always had the name of making cheap camcorders. In a market with players like Canon and Panasonic, DXG strives hard to compete with other brands to make the finest camcorders. It is a perception that DXG camcorder does not satisfy the need of the consumers. In other words there is a difference between what a user expects from DXG camcorders and what it actually provides.

The price range of the cameras of this gadet ranges from $1000 to $1500. Camcorders starting from $1000 are from Canon and Panasonic respectively. The advent of many new players who present the same commodity at a very low price of $150-$200 has diluted the market. Video output with good resolution is of high priority for many people when it comes to buying a camcorders and DXG has an abysmal,so called high-definition video output. True is the case that there always is two sides to a coin. The company, DXG, as such is promising with good numbers.

When you look into the box, one could see that the resolution is printed with big numbers, 1920 x 1080 pixels. But this is just half the story. The picture quality is not only based on the pixels but bit rate. Higher the bit rate greater the picture quality. Canon is a good example for this scenario. It promises nearly 24 Megabytes per second, which is quite high comparing to lower end cameras offering just 9 Megabytes per second.

DXG-518V has some positive features as well. For example, this 4” high gadget, DXG-518V, fits in your hand just like a baby does. We can also call this as a pistol grip design. The LCD swivels and it looks comfortable. The limelight of having a DXG-518V is that the piece comes with a HDMI cable in the box, which even the bigger player’s don’t provide. Now, one can capture a lot of lovely moments with DXG as it comes with SDHC cards, which helps to greater amount of storage. The camera also offers a 2.5″ TFT display, so that image will be little more bright than usual with a larger display.

The DXG-581V comes with built-in voice recorder which is good compared to other brands. The camcorder comes with an 8 mega pixel camera. The shutter speed is 30 frames per second. The flash memory that it comes up with is 32 Mb. The focus lens is 581V and the zoom level is only 4 x. However in terms of sale price the camera proves a little difficult for consumers to get a grasp on this gadget. The gadget weighs 4.06 oz which enables you to carry the camcorder for a long time.

The camcorder records in H.264, MOV format and moreover it comes with a one year guarantee. In terms of the cameras look one gets gelled to the ergonomic design. However it is upon analysing the specifications and the price that one does not feel too keen to buy it. The current market price of the camcorder is $124.81; it seems that the DXG has a lot of scope of improvement when it is compared with the lights of Canon’s and Panasonic’s

Canon Vixia HF S11

Few companies are using SD-based camcorders with and unbelievable thin designs, simply because this technologies allow the possibility to built much compact models than the old camcorder based on DV, hard disks or the worst kind of support: mini DVDs. While Canon is not stopping to offer compact AVCHD camcorders, the Vixia HF200 and HF20, the company is trying to hit another target of the market offering to the consumers the Vixia HF S11.

These models, which can record 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution video, feature a larger, faster f1.8 10X HD lens and a fairly large, 1/1.26-inch 8-megapixel CMOS sensor, along with few pro capabilities. The models differ by internal memory, the HF S100 has none, while the HF S10 has a good 32GB and the HF S11 has 64GB. Another good feature on the HF S11 is Dynamic SuperRange OIS, that was designed to compensate the movement while you are walking and at wide angles, and a very Advanced Snapshot mode, which means you can take a four-second clips from your videos in playback mode, and obviously also in capture mode. The weighs is almost a pound, the camcorder feels light for its size. Always a good characteristic, but it’s not very compact. The camcorder has a nice, functional design, with only a few exceptions, with easy controls and a streamlined user interface. The larger size allows you to be a but more comfortable holding it and you can feel free to operate with a really good control of the camera.

One of the major things you see in this camcorder is the odd built-in lens cover, is not using the usual aperture-blade type we normally see, but it uses a closing-eye type, a bit strange but good as well .The only exception in that when closed, the two plastic pieces tend to clatter against each other; but is not a big deal since the camcorder is off, just a little irritation. Another strange feature is that the video light is not in the typical location we usually see, on the side of the lens, Canon has choose to put it on the pop-up flash. On the side of the lens barrel. there is the stereo mics sit, it allows for larger mics and it’s a very good selection for this camera, you have a better separation than with the typical positioning up or below the lens. There’s a common mic input (3.5-millimeter) and the other usual connectors: component, Mini HDMI and USB. So, we have a good product, we have only a little prob: the 2.7-inch display is the common low-resolution model we normally see, the little fonts look not so good, pixelated as usual and would be difficult for some to read, but you can see your image pretty well also in direct sunlight, however.

The market of chips in 2010

The economic crisis is touching almost every sector of the market, most tech sectors are in big difficulties, the semiconductor big industry had a tough start in last year (2009). But it improved in central months of the 2009 and it’s going to a healthy recovery in this year, everybody hopes so.

Chip revenue has a huge falling down during the last period, about $228.4 billion across the world last year, a drop of 10.5 % from the previous year (2008), This is what the number said at this particular moment, but the prevision for the future are good. This period signed the first time this big industry sales declines for few years in a row, a bad period of time for all the firm in this sector, but is the market really going to come back to the normality? The numbers speaks for a yes to this question, the sales are growing up and the companies are planning to increase their sales in the next few months. After a big decline in the last quarter of 2008 and the initial months of 2009, next months revenue growth for this industry. Peter Middleton, main research analyst at Gartner, told few days ago in a statement; “If we looked at the present results, 2009 achievements total was much milder than starting scared in the aftermath of this financial crisis.”

Among all the companies that produced chips for 2009, Intel continued to be the leader of the sector. Did you have doubt about that? The first place for almost 20 years, this is the 18th year or reign for the technologies giant. Meanwhile its fiscal year sales felt down about $1.6 billion, Intel boosted its market share, according with the huge demand for notebook and PCs, to 14.6 % from 13.6 %. At the second step of the chart there is Samsung Electronics that was one of the few companies producing semiconductor technology to see its revenue rise in the last 10 months.Samsung’s sales of NAND flash memory and core DRAM products had dropped in 2008, forcing vendors to reduce supply. Industry wide output cuts that chip supply, linked with a renew in PC demand, helped boost products prices. Hynix Semiconductor Inc., is the second hugest producer of computer memory all over the world and they reported its biggest profit in three years. So, many companies as Toshiba, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm and many others after a bad period are trying to revitalize their chips business.
