Excerpt: (1 items) Years ago, Nikon was one of the first major companies to come out with a high-quality point-and-shoot camera for the serious photographer. That camera, the Coolpix 900, had a 1-megapixel sensor and cost around $800. Eleven years later, you can pick up Nikon’s 8-megapixel Coolpix L19 for around $100. Aimed squarely at the snapshot shooter, the L19 is a great alternative to a mobile phone camera.
Pros: Nice design, Excellent macro mode, Good interface, good video quality
Cons: Slight but correctable color cast, Weak flash, Easy Auto mode doesn't really work, Detail problems
Excerpt: The HP Scanjet is really a 1,2,3 operation. All I wanted was a piece of equipment that I could easily set up and produce out of sight scanned images. The HP Scanjet delivered it big time. I can even scan transparencies and 35 mm slides. The HP software is in my opinion one of the best on the market. I can create interesting presentations, e-mail images, produce PDF formats and more. Once the scanner is installed, all the features are a simple push of a button.
