10 Hot New Cameras
Top technologies and features are finding their way into the whole range of digital cameras, from compacts to D-SLRs
The annual Photo Marketing Association (PMA) Show is an exciting time of year for camera enthusiasts because that's when many new models are introduced. This year's show (March 8-11) was no exception, bringing us a number of exciting new cameras with some great features. We'll look at these features and then at 10 new models that incorporate the latest digital camera technologies.
First Look: Canon EOS-1D Mark III
The world’s fastest D-SLR gets a lot faster, live viewing, sensor cleaning and more!
Canon's EOS-1D Mark II has reigned as the D-SLR speed king for more than a year, able to shoot its 8.2-megapixel images at an amazing 8.5 per second. Now Canon has blown that out of the water with the Mark II's successor. The new EOS-1D Mark III's ability to shoot 10.1-megapixel images at 10 per second is just one of its remarkable talents.

It’s convenient to have everything stored digitally and in one place, but you probably spend a lot of time in front of your computer already, and wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy your photos and entertainment media in the living room instead of the office?

Q) I'm going on the trip of a lifetime in a few months and I was looking to stock up on memory cards so I don't have to bring my laptop with me.
