Casio Exilim EX-FH20

Casio has got another super-fast frame rate camera out in the markets: the EX-F20. It's a smaller and lighter version than its predecessors, but it has 9.1-megapixels, can still shoot ultra-high-speed bursts at 40 fps and high speed movies at "up to 1,000 fps" and has a 20x optical zoom, anti-shake, night-scene mode and standard 720p video option.

It's intended to appeal to a broader bunch of users, rather than just camera enthusiasts, so it's a little simpler than the EX-1, with all the shooting modes on a single dial. It'll be available in black in stores (USA) from October for $600 (approx. BDT 42,000).


HTC Touch HD - Official Shots, Specs

Images of the gorgeous HTC Touch HD have popped up on HTC's site, along with complete specs. Aside from the sweet WVGA 480x800 screen, GPS, Wi-Fi, TouchFLO UI and dual cameras are also confirmed for the WinMo Pro 6.1 beauty.

This entertainment focused mobile handset promises to transform how people experience multimedia on the move. Integrating a large 3.8 inch wide-screen VGA display (WVGA), a standard 3.5mm audio jack and a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, the HTC Touch HD is the perfect device for multimedia fans.

The HTC Touch HD combines high performance capabilities with a stylish, sleek design that has made HTC a global leader in mobile phone design and innovation. Its large 3.8 inch WVGA touchscreen offers users stunning clarity and vibrant colours, providing an unrivalled experience when watching movies, browsing the Internet or even scanning through photos taken with the 5 megapixel auto focus camera.

The stylish new device also features HTC's beautiful TouchFLO™ 3D user interface to provide quick and intuitive access to the people, messages and content that are most important. A standard 3.5mm headphone jack has also been designed-in, allowing consumers to use high-performance headphones with the device for the best possible sound quality.

Ikonoskop Camcorder Shoots 240MB of Video Every Second

The key to the crazy looking Ikonoskop A-cam dII camera may be the 80GB card that comes with it. How else would you expect to shoot 60 RAW frames of 1080p videototalling out at 240MBeach and every second?

However, it doesn't have the specs to match the legendary 4K Red One, but it does cost a lot less, less than half at $10,000 (approx. BDT 700,000)!!! That awesome memory card is twice as fast as the next best card on the market, but there is a catch: That 80GB will be used up in 15 minutes of video.


Bird's Nest Architects Latest Unveiling:
Apartment Tower in NYC

Fresh off the billions of eyes that have been on the beautiful Beijing National Stadium, Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron have set their sights on New York City with this incredible 57-story residential tower. It consists of 145 unique apartments that are stacked into the sky. The building, which will be built in Tribeca at 56 Leonard Street, uses extreme cantilevers to achieve a look that H&M describe as "pixelated vertical layering."

Herzog and de Meuron designed just about every aspect of the interiors as well, from the 12-foot glass doors that open out onto your private deck, the massive floor-to-ceiling fireplaceseven the colouring of the individual interior elements. If you want to live in an apartment designed by the same folks that brought us one of the coolest works of architecture of the 20th century (and you've got $3.5 millions for a small, low apartment or $33 million for a top apartment), this is your place.
