So here we select 5 digital cameras, most worthy in the market to date, for this review.

FujiFilm FinePix X100 | £ 999 inc VAT

fujifilm-finepix-x100-camera-review-PC-Supporter2The FujiFilm X100 is expensive, but there are enough committed camera fans out there for FufiFilm to have judged it worthwhile investing development resources in this fixed-lens camera.

The fully manual 12.3Mp camera is built from magnesium-alloy and has an APS-C sensor crammed in. The aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation settings can all be checked before you switch on the X100. A 2.8in LCD offers an alternative viewing and composition option. There’s also a dedicated RAW button, which lets you switch between uncompressed shooting and processing mode.

fujifilm-finepix-x100-camera-review-PC-SupporterThe camera weighs 445g and is chunky 54mm thick, so you won’t want to take it out and about on the off-chance it will get used. It’s anything but a point-and-shoot model, and has plenty of quirks.

A less complex (and less expensive) model, the £ 560 FujiFilm FinePix X10, is also available in the market, but because of better output results, the FujiFilm X100 amply rewards.

Canon lxus 230 HS | £200 incl VAT

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Canon lxus is as beautiful a compact camera as you’re ever likely to searching for. It comes in black, silver, purple, brown or red colors, and physically is very slim, given the mechanics inside.

The follow-up model to last year’s popular 220 HS, it’s a 12.1Mp compact with a 28mm wide-angle lens and an 8x optical zoom. Compared with the zoom range of some of the compact cameras, the Canon’s is modest. However, the HS in its name refers to its combination of high speed and high sensitivity something that wouldn’t work well over a 15x zoom. The 22mm thick body would be hard pushed to accommodate a larger lens anyhow.

Controls are geared towards point-and-shoot photography, with a simple dial to adjust the zoom and an onscreen indicator if your hands are shaking. Video can be taken at 720p and has a dedicated record button. A switch that lets you change from automatic to manual operation resides on the right-hand side, while flash and macro options can be adjusted via a navipad on the rear. Other settings are changed via the onscreen menu.

As with other HS cameras (Canon offers lxus and PowerShot models with this feature), the 230 is capable of capturing blur-free photos under challenging low-light conditions, so you can take party shots without blinding everyone with the flash. Canon cites 210 shots before the battery needs to be recharged. Expect around 40 minutes of video footage to deplete the battery.

Kodak EasyShare Touch M5370 | £129 inc VAT

Kodak-EasyShare-Touch-M5370-PC-SupporterNot everyone wants to spend hundreds of pounds on a digital camera. The Kodak EasyShare M5370 packs in plenty for its £129 price tag. You get a 16Mp CCD, video capture, support for direct uploading to a range of photo-sharing websites and social networks, plus in-camera editing to finesse your images.

EasyShare software can automatically recognize that there’s someone in shot that looks a lot like a person in a pervious photo and suggest they might be one and the same. If so, the face detection and tagging beloved of Facebook form a formidable alliance and pre-tag your photos ready for uploading. When you next turn on the camera, it’ll group photos in the gallery by subject, making it faster to find the best photo of a particular person.

A 5x optical zoom, image stabilization and 20 scene presets all features on this likable budget and worthy and stylish camera.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 | £360 inc VAT

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 is a great-value 12.1Mp Micro Four Third camera with a tilt-able 3in LCD touchscreen for image composition. This makes it easy to specify what you’d like the focal point of your photo to be.

A good range of scene presets and an intelligent Auto setting make for a shallow learning curve, while advanced options span aperture priority – from f3.5 to f5.6 – and adjustments to light levels. ISO settings from 100 up to 6400 are supported. For unusual compositions, in-camera effects can be applied.

The DMC-G2 can record video at 720p to the Blu-ray-compatible AVCHD format. The standard camera kit includes a 14-42mm lens.

Sony Cyber-Shot HX9V | £250 inc VAT

Sony Cyber-Shot HX9V The best of the advanced compact cameras crop, the Sony Cyber-shot HX9V eschews manual settings, such as aperture priority and user controlled shutter speeds, and doesn’t support RAW file formats. Nonetheless, it produces excellent digital photographs the most important factor in any camera.

The Sony’s 16Mp CCD promises plenty of detail (we don’t advise buying a camera based on megapixel count alone, but this model is a safe bet) and there’s also a 16x optical zoom so you can capture extreme close-ups even from over the road. Dual-image stabilization helps ensure shots are crisp.

All that zooming in ought to pound the batter but the CIPA rating for the HX9V is an outstanding 410 shots between charges. Really, though, it’s the 3D capabilities of this camera that will astound.

Rounding this off are support for geo-location tagging and some clever in-camera trickery to make the most of your photo artistry.

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is. Why I am talking only about graphics memory of my PC because Microsoft didn't mention any thing about required graphics card of amount of memory (as far as I read about it), and my RAM and Processor is enough sufficient to operate W…
