In addition, Continental Mobiles offer various mobile phones with embedded diamonds. All purchases are delivered with a so-called 'Gold Card', which stands for the exclusively British manufacturing of the product.

ATP GPS Review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Thursday 15th, May 2008

The ATP Photo Finder comes in four different colours; besides the green with black model we tested, black/white, white/black and white/orange versions are also available. The bright green part feels a bit like rubber. The black parts, used for the edges of the GPS Photo tracker, are made of plastic. With its dimensions of 3x1.5x1 inch, I wouldn’t exactly call the ATP Photo Finder compact. However; the included carbine clip - completely carried out in black plastic- offers a great solution. Furthermore, the ATP Photo Finder features a 128x32 Dot Matrix FSTN monitor which puts this ATP a step ahead of the competition, since most GPS photo trackers lack a monitor. The monitor offers information about your position through coordinates and the current date and time. Besides the Photo Finder and the carbine clip, a mini USB cable and a quick user’s guide in English are included in the package. The whole set is delivered in a simple cardboard box.

Garmin Outdoor GPS review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Sunday 13th, April 2008

As soon as you hold the Garmin GPS map 60CSx you are aware of the fact that it is a high quality product. The waterproof and shockproof housing not only feels solid but also has a perfect hand-fit. The large 1.5 inch x 2.2 inch TFT monitor stands out and is a 256 colour high resolution reflective colour monitor. With its dimensions of 2.4 x 6.1 x1.3 inches, the Garmin GPS is a tad too big to carry around in your trouser pocket.

Both the traditional photographer and the camera trade, have always turned up their nose at the camera-phone. The PMA 2011 emphasizes mainly the traditional photography, albeit in a digital way. In terms of image quality, the photographer is right, while the camera cell phone is nowhere near able to come up with the same high quality that puts digital photography ahead of mobile imaging. However, when we consider the possibility of sharing, and the fact that a mobile phone is always at hand, we should not underestimate the impact of mobile imaging. Mobile photography is continuously subject to innovation, and the speed at which these technological advances take place, is at least impressive. Perhaps the PMA 2011 will adopt mobile imaging as a permanent phenomenon?
