Indian ingenuity displayed at ISA's Technovation showcase

An innovative convergence platform that helps TV owners, seamlessly switch from television to Internet on the same screen….. An eco-friendly mosquito trap that mimics the human body…an automatic vehicle licence plate recognizer….a 32 channel silicon strip detector that is being used by the European Organization for Nuclear Research ( CERN) in hundreds of thousands, top detect sub atomic particles… these were some of the novel products of Indian ingenuity that the Indian Semiconductor Association has recognized with its Technovation Awards 2010 during its Vision Summit that ended in Bangalore earlier this week. Other awardees honoured included an affordable USB-based 3-lead ECG monitor – claimed to be a world first – an AI-based intuitive phonetic transliteration tool for Indian languages; an add on that allows power tillers to be driven robotically; a mobile platform for branchless banking and solar powered LED light sources.

“Technovation Awards recognizes innovation and achievement in the dynamic and evolving Indian electronics industry. This year’s Technovation Awards provided a platform for the nominees and applicants to demo their innovative products and solutions at the Vision Summit”, said Anil Gupta, ISA Executive Council Member & ISA Technovation Awards 2010 Convener.

IndiaTechOnline will feature the most innovative products( including some that might not have won prizes but were noteworthy in our estimation!) as soon as the details we requested reach us. Meanwhile here is ISA’s full list of Products and processes awarded.

The Technovation Awards this year (2010) had the following categories:

• Best Electronic Product (Healthcare, Energy Efficiency, Consumer, Telecom, Security, and Other) - Focuses on products that are substantially created in India. It thus recognizes the innovative spirit within both Indian and non-Indian organizations with presence in India.

• Startup to watch - Encourages the entrepreneurial spirit within the electronics industry in India, where engineers are taking bold steps to create a new business based on a new solution or a new product.

• TechnoMentor - Encourages "mentoring" and "sharing" of knowledge. It is only through open sharing of knowledge that the overall knowledge pool and the depth of knowledge will increase, leading to better solutions

• TechnoVisionary - Recognizes the contributions of an individual to the Electronics & Semiconductor domain and through that channel, the contributions to the country

  "I bought this lens about eight mnhots ago for my Canon 350D. If like me you bought the kit that comes bundled with the 18-55mm lens you'll notice there is a big gap when it comes to zoom/telephoto shots, this is a great budget tele-photo zoom lens that does what it says on the tin, and fills the gap nicely.I am an amateur photographer at best and still learning, but after using the lens for a while I was disappointed to learn that the f stop values really do make a big difference the widest aperture you will be able to set this lens to is 4.0 at 75mm and only 5.6 at 300mm, if your really serious you need a fast lens like f/2.8, and definitely with IS (image stabilisation) the lens is not that heavy (for me), but during a long shoot it starts to feel like a cannon (pardon the pun), the lens really protrudes out at towards the 300mm end, and if you hold the camera pointing straight down, expect lens creep. Add an external flash onto the hot shoe and expect a real workout!My wife complains its way too heavy especially with a speedlite mounted on top, just carry a tripod if you expect to be on a long shoot, or mount the external flash on a tripod (you'll need something like a speedlite wireless remote for this, expensive, but its tiny and weighs next to nothing and gets the speedlite off the camera).Having said all that, I have got some really great shots with this, and overall for the price you pay for this lens it's a real good value for money. If I'm going to a function, like a party within a hall, I would almost always use this lens (not to good for mid range shots 50mm better for this, which is why I carry another camera to save swapping lenses about), great for candid photography where you can position yourself at the other side of the hall and take shots without distracting or letting your subjects know they are being shot just have a strong arm, and good light conditions/flash. For portrait shots, and shots where you slow the shutter speed use a tripod, or you get too much blur/softness. If you also intend to pan the shot, a tripod with a panning handle is also essential.The other thing you need to bear in mind is the multiplication factor (of the focal length) of your camera. Unless your lucky enough to have a camera with the same focal length as a 35mm film camera, i.e. a full 35mm frame size, the camera may effectively crop the image to fit on the film sensor the 350D has a factor of x1.6, this means this lens is effectively a 120mm 480mm lens (!) This is great on the tele-photo side, you get more magnification than you pay for, but not so good for wide angle or down at the 75mm end, where you've actually got 120mm. (Because of this factor, if you want a wide-angle lens and you have a 350/400D then you'd be better off going for ultra wide 14mm).Bottom line, it's a heavy lens, and no IS, but for the price of the lens very good value for money! I haven't regretted buying this, and unless you're a really serious photographer, and shoot within the limits of this lens you wont either."
