    • • Beautiful Images—Even in Low Light You don't always want to use the flash. The back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor delivers stunning low-light performance and increases sensitivity by 2x to reduce noise. Perfect for capturing the low-light mood of the moment. • Breathtaking Images with Sweep Panorama Sweep Panorama Mode reaches beyond the traditional wide angle lenses to let you capture expansive, breathtaking shots of landscapes or skyscrapers. Just press the shutter and shoot the scene with a sweeping motion. The camera does the rest.
    • • Takes 10 Photos in 1 Second Capture decisive moments—like the ball hitting the bat—with the ability to shoot 10 images in one second at up to 10.2 megapixel resolution through the mechanical shutter. It's also fun for capturing a unique sequence of images. • Impressive 24mm Wide Angle Lens Most point and shoot cameras don't have a lens like this. The combination of 24mm wide angle, 5x optical zoom, and wide f/2.4 aperture allows you to take photos that you couldn't take with a point and shoot camera in the past. • Shoot Movies in HD Capture more of your memories with high definition video. Your movies will look stunning on large TV screens thanks to the 720p high-definition MPEG4 recording format. Record up to 29 min (or up to 2GB) per movie in 720p format. Learn More About HD Viewing • iAuto Mode Makes It Easy Unlike traditional auto mode, iAuto mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, and faces, and adjusts settings resulting in clear images, faces with natural skin tone, and less blur. By incorporating advanced features such as Intelligent Scene Recognition and Face Detection technology, Sony makes it easy to get the best shot.

    • Averatec D1200 The Averatec D1200 ($999 list) is an all-in-one desktop PC that not only looks like an HDTV, it can also act like one. It can receive HDTV broadcasts, record them, and play them back for you in full 1,920 by 1,200 resolution (HDTV is 1,920 by 1,080). It's powerful enough to display full HD video from the Web or from your local TV stations. You can also do exciting stuff like connect to your social networks, or "serious" stuff like display PowerPoint presentations or even set it up as a display kiosk. It would work equally well in a conference room as it would in the bedroom or den. While far from perfect, it is a very good example of the convergence between TV and computing that we've been promised since the mid 1990s. Design The D1200 looks like a 25.5-inch HDTV. There's the same glossy plastic, the obvious "screen," and the clearly marked touch sensitive buttons on the front panel. There's even an antenna hookup in the back. It isn't internally expandable (only the memory slots are user accessible), but you can of course hook up USB devices to the six USB ports (the system lacks FireWire or eSATA). The internal 320GB hard drive is sufficient for moderate use, but you'd want more space if you like saving whole seasons of TV shows in HD. The D1200 is like a DVD/TV combo: it has a DVD burner that can be used to watch movies. Also, since the system comes with Windows Vista Home Premium, you can use the built-in Media Center (MCE) software to watch and record TV from the ATSC/HDTV tuner. Using a set-top box like the one from your cable provider is possible: just make sure it has a "RF Out" or "Antenna Out." The D1200 doesn't have other A/ V inputs (like Component or HDMI) nor an IR blaster to control the set top box. It works best as a TV hooked direct to your cable or antenna. Features Watching over the air (OTA) HDTV was a pretty good experience. Yes, you have to go through the multi-step MCE setup procedure to get the TV listings and TV tuner setup, but once you do, you can browse the listings and setup recordings fairly easily. Surfing the channels is as easy as it is on any DVR. HD quality was very good to excellent, depending on the channel. Our test lab is near the Empire State Building, so the major channels came in smooth and clear. The 25.5-inch screen supported the full 1080i video from the antenna, as well as
    • 1080p HD videos from the Web. DVD movies looked fine on the screen, though I wish that Blu-ray was an internal option. You could attach an external Blu-ray player to the D1200, but that would spoil its clean lines. The D1200 has touch-sensitive controls on the front panel for on/off, volume, brightness, and LCD on/off. The last control lets you keep the system on for recording programs, but allows the screen to rest and will make it seem like the TV is "off." The latter function is important in the bedroom and conference room. The D1200 comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse, and the slim IR remote slips into a cubby hole in the keyboard: very clever! The IR remote itself is a nice MCE one. It could be a little more robust (the battery door had a tendency to pop open unexpectedly), but all in all it's a good TV/PC experience. The desktop comes with a customized build of Vista Home Premium (64-bit), and it's mostly good. Most of the bloatware offenders are omitted: no Microsoft Office trial, AOL, or eBay for example. However there is still the spectre of Wild Tangent Games (pay to download games), and the Norton AntiVirus subscription is only 90 days instead of the 12-15 months we prefer. All in all it's a pretty inoffensive setup. Performance At the multimedia tasks, the D1200 is a decent, if pedestrian performer. It is able to complete the Windows Media Encoder test in 1 minute 7 seconds and the PhotoShop CS4 test in two minutes. Of the two the WME test is more important, thanks to the system's focus on video. Predictably, the D1200 is poor at 3D tests, owing to its Intel integrated graphics. No worries, however, since the D1200 is all about 2D video rather than 3D gaming. The D1200 cements its place as the top of the line for Averatec's all in one PCs. It's huge compared with the Averatec D1133 ($599 list), and seems much sturdier. Also the D1133 is really a desktop/laptop replacement, while the D1200 is a HDTV with a PC built in. The D1200 compares well with the Apple iMac (Nvidia GeForce 9400M): the D1200 is a whole lot cheaper, has a larger screen, and has a TV tuner. True the iMac has better performance and is more business- like, but the comparison has to be made. The Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 (3011-4BU) is closer: it also has TV capabilities and a HD screen. However the A600 is more expensive due to better materials (particularly in the remote) and the A600 has a Blu-ray drive for HD movies. The original A600 we looked at is closer in price ($699), and lacks a TV tuner, but it's more powerful and holds on to its All in One Editors' Choice. The Dell Studio One 19 and Cybernet iOne-GX31 have touchscreens, but the iOne is more of a business system, and the Studio One 19 has a smaller screen and is more expensive. Overall, the D1200 does well, but not well enough to unseat the Lenovo A600 nor the iMac from their perches.
    • The Averatec D1200 is a hybrid: it's both a TV and a PC. Compared with its predecessors, it nails the look and feel of a TV, for a lot less than the $2,500 that Sony wanted for its LV series last year. The PC portion is no slouch; only a few key omissions like Blu-ray and a smallish hard drive keep it from scoring higher. If you would like to skip the Blu-ray format altogether and just view broadcast HDTV and HD videos online, then the D1200 could be your choice for a TV/PC.
    • Bose QuietComfort 15 Bose invented the noise-canceling headphone, so the company must not have liked seeing companies like Creative and Sennheiser waltz right in and beat them at their own game. With the QuietComfort 15, however, Bose takes back the category it created. At $299.95 (direct), the QC 15 replaces the QuietComfort 2; and while the more expensive and more compact ($349.95 direct) QuietComfort 3 is still available, it lacks the new-and- improved noise-canceling circuitry, which is arguably the best feature of the QC 15. Audio is still a bit too bright and the headphones tend to distort on deep bass at very high volumes, they sound better than previous QuietComfort models, and one thing is for certain: this is the most effective noise-cancellation headphone pair you can buy, making it our latest Editors' Choice. At first glance, the QC 15 doesn't look very different than the QC 2— and there's no real explanation as to why the model number jumped so significantly. The familiar black circumaural (around-the-ear) headphone design with silver ear cups has been emulated by several competitors, and Bose stays true to its iconic look with this pair. As always, the headphones fold flat to save space; they fit into a redesigned, but very similar, sturdy black carrying case. Inside the case: an airplane adapter, a long detachable audio cable, and one AAA battery (there's no rechargeable cell like with the QC 3). A switch on the right ear cup activates the noise-cancellation circuitry, which needs to be on to hear audio. Since the cable is removable, however, you can use them to simply block noise, and there won't be a cable dangling awkwardly from your head. Bose estimates battery life at around 35 hours, but your actual mileage will depend on your usage level and the battery you use.
    • By far the greatest thing about the QC 15 is its improved noise cancellation. While the QC 2 and QC 3 both offer significant noise attenuation, the Creative Aurvana X-Fi—our previous Editors' Choice in this category—and the Sennheiser PXC 450 NoiseGard both rival Bose's noise-cancellation performance. By adding a second microphone—now there's a mic inside and outside of each ear cup— and by using more advanced materials in the padded seal around the ear, Bose has managed to significantly improve upon its previous technology, lowering noise levels in both higher and lower frequency ranges. Who knows whether it's the extra mic or the ear cups' seal passively reducing noise that's the real game-changer here, but the results are undeniable. Not only is the overall ambient rumble of a train or an airplane engine significantly decreased, but there's no audible high-frequency hiss, like you'll get with some other noise- canceling headphone pairs. In an A-to-B comparison with the QC 3 and the Aurvana X-Fi in a loud room, there was no question; the QC 15 prevailed. The noise-cancellation circuitry is the best you'll find, and that's reason enough to buy the QC 15. Adding to the allure, however, is improved audio performance over previous QC models, although the QC 15 is not for audiophiles. Noise- canceling headphones rarely deliver flat response, and this pair is no exception. While its frequency response offers better bass response than the QC 2, the pair can be overly bright—at times bringing more clarity to an orchestral recording like Jonny Greenwood's score for There Will Be Blood, but at others adding too much sibilance and punch to vocals and piano hits in pop songs, like Grizzly Bear's Two Weeks. Despite the improved bass response, there's still some distortion at high-to-maximum volumes—the deep bass of The Knife's Silent Shout made the QC 15 rattle when listening levels were pumped up in my tests. Normally this would be a significant knock, but at safe- to-moderately-high listening levels, there's no distortion whatsoever; the bass is full and articulate. And the noise cancellation is so excellent that the QC 15 can afford to be strong-but-not-perfect in the audio department. If audio quality is your first priority, skip the QC 15 and check out Creative's $300 Aurvana X-Fi, which can deliver audio when in passive mode (that is, when the noise cancellation is not activated and the battery is not being used). The Aurvana X-Fi has no distortion issues, and definitely handles the high frequency range with less exaggeration and a little more grace. That said, I suspect most people looking for noise-canceling headphones want to block out the rumble of a 737's
    • engine or the endless drone of a subway car. In this regard, the QC15 can't be beat. That it also offers high quality, if not astounding, audio performance is a bonus. And let's not forget one other important factor for travelers seeking refuge from noise on long trips: True to its name, the Bose QuietComfort 15 is incredibly comfortable.
