There really isn't much to the Canon PowerShot SX30 IS beyond its megazoom lens, though that's all most buyers will care about.
It starts at a 35mm-equivalent 24mm and goes out to 840mm--a whopping 35x magnification.
Canon paired it with a 14.1-megapixel 1/2.3-inch type CCD sensor, which is the standard size you'd find in any point-and-shoot camera.

We've reviewed our fair share of screenshot utilities in our time, and we can't say that it gets much easier than SnapaShot. This simple tool lets users easily capture exactly the portion of the screen that they want and save it in a variety of formats.

The camera will cost $70 when it launches in Japan next year, … Read more
2K Sports NHL 2K11 brings console-like hockey gameplay to your touch screen and manages to pull it off well, with only a few minor annoyances. If you've played console hockey games, you'll feel right at home; pick from any of the NHL licensed teams (with all your favorite players) and hit the ice for an Exhibition game, play an entire 82 game season, or you can practice in the Free skate and Shootout modes. There is no multiplayer option in NHL 2K11 (Wi-Fi or otherwise), but hopefully that's slated for later versions.
The control system consists of … Read more
