  • PFBarn review

    The Pixel Farm is a relatively new company aiming their products at high-end effects facilities as well as those on a more restricted budget. Their products are not cheap, but compared to similar programs in the market they offer decent value. Their current product roster consists of three programs - PFMatch, PFTrack, and PFBarn ...

  • HumanEyes 3D review

    HumanEyes 3D is an interesting new technology that creates stereoscopic images for print or on-screen viewing. It was originally invented to allow a single digital camera to capture 360-degree panoramas for stereoscopic viewing – this hasn’t previously been possible with one camera. Technically it’s not true 3D, but ‘2.5D’ as the subjects only rotate slightly, but your eyes see a realistic continuous-depth impression.

  • Nikon D70 review

    For users of SLR cameras, going digital can have a major impact on the wallet. SLR prices jump from hundreds of pounds for a film camera to thousands for a digital model, which is why most digital SLR manufacturers have concentrated on the professional market – until recently. Nikon’s 6.1-megapixel D70 is the company’s first model designed for photographers of all stripes.

  • DVD Studio Pro 3 review

    Apple’s premier DVD-formation package is now in its third incarnation, bringing new interface elements, workflow enhancements and wider format support to Mac-based DVD authors. The basic method of constructing a DVD remains the same, but the power of the application is in the compact nature of the process.

  • Kodak DX7630 review

    Arriving too late for our compact camera round up (see Digit 75), the DX7630 looks like nothing more than another point-&-shoot digital compact, but glance beneath the bonnet and you’ll find features designed to please those demanding more control. The question is: can Kodak’s top-of-the range compact camera compete with others in this sportier class?

  • Bubble Jet i9950 review

    Canon’s latest, greatest A3 photo inkjet printer is overall the best traditional model that we’ve ever seen. However, if you’re willing to pay a little more, this printer can be topped. The Bubble Jet i9950 is the sequel to last year’s top-rated i9100 – reviewed and given a Best Buy as part of our group test in Digit 69. The i9950 adds two more inks ...

  • Designjet 30 review

    The Designjet 30 isn’t unique like its 130 brother (reviewed previously) but that doesn’t mean it’s any less impressive. The 30 is an A3+ version of the A1 130 – offering almost all of the features that made the 130 so great, though including the same few irritating flaws.

  • PF Match 1.0 review

    The market for match-moving software is becoming increasingly crowded – and now there’s another product to add to the list. The Pixel Farm’s PFMatch joins the likes of 2d3’s Boujou, RealViz’s MatchMover, and a handful of plug-in-based solutions in the match-moving market. PFMatch aims to offer a sophisticated toolset and autotracking for the extraction of 3D camera data from film or video footage.

  • DVD Architect 2 (from Vegas+DVD 5) review

    Against rivals such as Adobe’s Encore DVD, Apple’s DVD Studio and Ulead’s DVD Workshop, DVD Architect is unusual in that it’s available only as part of Sony’s Vegas+DVD bundle (Vegas 5 is reviewed here). Looking at version 2.0, this makes perfect sense – as while its interface and integration will appeal to Vegas users, its toolset isn’t up to the competition.

  • Photosmart 945 review

    HP’s Photosmart 945 camera is difficult to pigeonhole. Over five megapixels, and an 8x optical zoom lens might put it in the class of advanced cameras like the Minolta Dimage A1 or the Fujifilm FinePix S7000, which cost a lot more. But the overall design of the Photosmart 945 seems aimed at providing point-&-shoot ease.

  • Photosmart 7762 review

    HP’s Photosmart 7762 is a decent printer that delivers when it comes to photo quality. The price isn’t bad, either, and the unit is well equipped to print photos from memory cards or directly from a digital camera. The control panel’s 1.8-inch LCD displays either photos or menu commands, and the flash-memory card slots on the front of the printer read all common memory-card formats. You can connect an ...

  • Profile Mechanic review

    Profile Mechanic consists of two independent programs, sold separately. Profile Mechanic Monitor can calibrate and write ICC correction profiles for CRT and LCD monitors. It provides a small USB colorimeter sensor with interchangeable supports for both types of monitor. Profile Mechanic Scanner creates correction profiles for any flatbed or transparency scanner, as well as digital cameras.

  • EasyShare CX7430 review

    If simplicity is a virtue when it comes to digital cameras, the Kodak EasyShare CX7430 outclasses most of its competition. Kodak gave this camera just the few controls needed for basic snapshot photography, and added text-based help prompts so that even the most neophyte photographer can work through them after a little instruction.

  • Stylus Photo R300M review

    The Epson Photo R300M possesses many features that make printing and managing your photography – with or without a PC – more convenient. The £135 plus VAT printer has two 2.5-inch LCDs: a monochrome display on the control panel for viewing menus, and a colour LCD for previewing images before printing. Among the menu options are commands for printing multiple images (or multiple copies of the same image) on one page, correcting colour and brightness ...

  • Designjet 130 review

    HP’s Designjet 120 was a revelation when we first looked at it back in September last year. A 24-inch inkjet printer that combined the best from HP’s wide-format and photo inkjet divisions, the 120 was inexpensive to buy – though not to run – and was small enough to be considered a desktop printer. Now HP has upgraded it to create the 130 ...

  • Matchmover Pro 3 review

    Designed for high-end post-production work, MatchMover Pro is Realviz’s professional 3D camera-tracking system. It’s a robust and generally well-designed package, and it offers both automatic and full user control of the tracking process. Match-moving is the process by which 3D camera data can be extracted from nothing more than film or video footage ...
