CANON POWERSHOT

SX280 HS £290

The PowerShot SX280 HS is ideal for travel and is Wi-fi-enabled — and connecting to Wi-fi is straightforward but very slow. While not perfect, the Wi-fi is great to use. You can quickly connect the camera to any Wi-fi network, create an ad-hoc Wi-fi network from within the camera, connect the camera to your smartphone and back up images to a PC. Battery usage is heavy with Wi-fi and GPS running so consider a spare battery.

What the future may bring for digital cameras and what features are here now

Camera Tech

By David Willis From the camera obscura to the smartphone, a camera design requires only a few key ingredients: an imaging plane (digital sensor or piece of film); a way to preview the composition (screen or viewfinder); and a way to project the image to the imaging plane. Digital cameras incorporate miniature computers, hardware and software to capture, interpret and store this information while film cameras provide a housing for the roll of film and a way to move the film forward. Digital camera designs were formed largely around these legacy analog systems so photographers who had invested

Smart flashguns, clever features

Some flashguns are a lot more advanced than others. Check for the functions you need to suit the way you shoot

Super Tip!

Ni-MH batteries are preferable to alkaline cells for use in flashguns. Not only are they rechargeable, but recycle speeds between flashes also tend to be noticeably faster. One problem, however, is that most Ni-MH batteries lose their charge quite quickly: it’s annoying if you put freshly charged batteries in your flashgun, then go to use it a couple of weeks later and find that they’ve already gone flat. Some Ni-MH batteries I are engineered to hold their

Modern icon

Volkswagen third-generation Beetle will make young friends fast e’re happy to report that the design of the 21 st Century Beetle largely stays true to its initial concept: a sterner, masculine vision, and one that promised to look and feel fun. VW’s chief designer Walter de Silva realised that it was pointless trying to reinvent the old, iconic Beetle. It was created for a world that no longer exists. The 21st Century version is, well, 21st century. It’s larger, wider, bulkier and heavier than it was before. The wheel arches are less pronounced, and the roof is flatter and longer.

MAMP SERVER

Fewer features, more focus on your hosting

MAMP stands for Macintosh Apache MySQL PHP, the latter three words respectively describing the web server, database language, and compatible web-programming language it provides. It’s a free download from http:// mamp.info. The free version has all you need to get started.

It’s very focused and doesn’t include any of the supplementary features bundled with OS X Server, but don’t let that deter you. The pay-off is that this makes it very easy to manage. Also, because it ships with an integrated MySQL server, it’s ready to run content management systems like Joomla and

In the lifecycle of DSLR releases, three years is a fair stretch. Due in late August 2013, with the 60D having been released in summer 2010, should we therefore expect this new model to come with a complete overhaul of features, or just a few upgrades here and there in the spirit of natural camera evolution?
