It's our final overnight recap before the holiday break, which just so happens to also be our last one of the year as well. The MacLife.com crew will be indulging in egg nog and spending some well-deserved time with the family over the next week and a half, but we won't be back with another recap until Monday, January 6 -- by which point the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show will be kicking off, and there should be plenty of new stuff for all! Until then, happy holidays to all and a big ho-ho-ho to go!
Although it’s “just another” compact camera, the Canon G1 X is more exciting than most because, at 1.5 inches (18.7x14mm), its 14.3-megapixel CMOS sensor is only a fraction smaller than the average SLR’s. Also, its pixels are the same size and design as those on the Canon 600D’s sensor. This immediately puts the G1 X ahead of the game and makes it capable of producing high-quality images.
The summer period is traditionally a quiet time for tech.
All the big hitters are preparing their big launches for the end of the year to hopefully pull in lots of Christmas sales.
However, that doesn't mean there aren't still boat loads of awesome products flowing in and out of the TechRadar testing labs. This week we've been testing cameras, lots of laptops, motherboards and all sorts of lovely items.
Read on for this week's hottest reviews on TechRadar.
The iPhone 4 makes a pretty great pocketable camera, but as awesome as it can be, the lens leaves a lot to be desired -- until now. If you’ve got some spare cash and SLR lenses waiting to be put to use, one accessories manufacturer has just the gadget for you.
This week we've reviewed the fabulous new Android handset from HTC -- the HTC Sensation. We've also reviewed the latest Canon PowerShot SX230 HS compact as well as the Panasonic TX-P42GT30B 3D plasma among scores of other reviews. Read on for the full list.
Wireless all-in-one inkjet printers are all the rage these days, and from a quick glance at the specs, you’d be led to believe that they’re mostly the same. The reality is, all wireless printers are not created equal, so we rounded up six Mac-compatible units (each from a different manufacturer) to find out which one is worth your time and money.
Boinx Software's iStopMotion is a great tool for creating stop motion movies using a camera connected directly to your Mac. This tool got much better today, however, with update 2.5. The update adds enhanced support for Canon cameras, better iMovie export options, tilt shift filter, and even color correction.
Everyone needs to print, scan, and copy sometimes, but often, basic all-in-ones leave you longing for that nice, high-end printer at your office. That’s when Canon’s Pixma MG8120 becomes an attractive option. Using six individual ink cartridges, the MG8120 pumps out a crisp, vibrant 4x6 print in approximately 20 seconds from Mac and Windows computers or from an iOS device using the free Canon Easy-PhotoPrint for iPhone app from the App Store (an Android app is also available).
All of the Macs at our company print to two very expensive network photocopier/scanners: the Canon ImageRunner 2270 and the Canon ImageRunner 3025. We just upgraded the office to Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, but there are no Snow Leopard drivers on Canon’s website! So now we can’t print at all! We called Canon, and they told us to downgrade to Leopard or purchase a newer photocopier because ours have been discontinued.
