Yogile – Photo Sharing Site with a Group Focus

Yogile makes itself out to be a group photo sharing site the likes of which we haven’t seen before – it offers simplicity that can’t be achieved elsewhere.

The feature that sells it for me is that anyone is able to submit photos to your account by email – unlike Flickr where every single photo has to be uploaded or emailed by you, you just set an address and anyone with photos can email them to that address as attachments and they’ll be posted online – your friends and family don’t even need to register.

10 Highly Anticipated Gadgets for 2011

2011 should be a great year for gadget lovers. From new “iPad killers” to 3D handheld gaming, we expect new innovations and improvements on perfection. Below are our picks for the 10 most highly anticipated gadgets in 2011.

1. Blackberry PlayBook

From what we know about Blackberry phones, RIM’s Blackberry PlayBook may very well be the most impressive non-iPad tablet to hit the market. Like Blackberry phones, the Playbook will be catered to the business market and will have a Dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and the ability to output 1080p video. Blackberry’s tablet also boasts what RIM calls “true multitasking” and Adobe Flash and Air support.

2. Nintendo 3DS

The device that rocked 2010’s E3 and 2011’s CES will finally hit the shelves this year. The Nintendo 3DS will give gamers the ability to play 3D games without requiring 3D glasses. Boasting graphical performance enhancements over early DS versions , the 3DS will have backward compatibility with their games.

Sony Bloggie Handheld Camcorder – Flip competitor

Just as we thought the Flip Mino HD had taken the whole market for ultra-portable camcorders, Sony has fought back and offered the Bloggie. Their 5MP handheld camcorder has a 1920×1080 HD recording resolution and displays on a 2.5-inch LCD screen.

There are a few different models available, all with varying specs and colors but none of them stand out as being better than the Flip series.

In fact, it would be quite possible to say that the Flip series and Sony Bloggie series are pretty much identical. The price is the same, the resolution near enough, and the only difference comes when you start looking at aperture sizes (and that classic Sony styling)!

If Sony are hoping people will buy purely because of their branding, it’s a risky bet. Those loyal to Sony are likely to be from slightly older generations, i.e. those that have a need for a full-sized camcorder not a portable one. With the Flip being seen as so cool and desirable amongst the younger generations they have a lot to live up to. Good luck Sony.

Canon Launches New EOS Rebel

Canon Rebel EOS T2iThe Canon EOS Rebel T2i is seen as the ‘flagship’ of Canon’s entry-level digital SLRs (so it’s the best of the worst, right?). While the camera is relatively similar to the previous EOS Rebel, a lot of the features have improved slightly to produce a more feature-packed high-specification camera all round.

The resolution on this camera is an impressive 18 megapixels and the screen is as large as you’d expect on a camera of this quality – it is also easy to use; a bonus compared to some of its competitors! The resolution of the camera means that photos produced are 6 foot by 4 foot in actual size, should you ever wish to print them out at 100% (stock up on those ink cartridges). …

6x Telescoping Optical Zoom Lens for the iPhone

6X Telescope with Crystal Case for iPhone 4GWith the advent of smartphones like the iPhone, Android and WebOS handsets, it seems that anything that can be an app is an app. But that’s not all, the ports on these phones also allow for accessories to be plugged in to extend their functionality.

Take this 6x telescoping lens for the iPhone 4G for example. It looks unwieldly, but this is a real life optical zoom lens for your phone, and you may not care if you’re into photography. Let me repeat that – for your phone! Also crazy is that it’s under $20. I’m a little skeptical about how well this works as it’s from one of those sites that sells just about anything that anyone can dream up but for another $3 in shipping, you could find out yourself!

Sony Alpha A55 Camera redefines SLR technology

Sony-SLT-A55VL DSLRPhotography technology is continually evolving and if Sony has a say in it, S.L.R.s (Single-Lens Reflex) could make way for I.L.C.s (interchangeable-lens compacts). Although still marketed as an SLR, Sony’s new Alpha A55 camera does and works in a number of new and different things/ways.

For starters, the A55 (SLTA55VL) uses a translucent mirror, so it never ‘goes blind’ as the mirror flips out of the way to allow light to fall onto the film, meaning you get continual focus and no blurriness.
