Xerox flip-flops on US$6.1 billion Fujifilm flip after investor flap

As expected, Xerox under its activist-investor-controlled board has decided to exit its deal with Fujifilm. Carl Icahn and Darwin Deason, who between them controlled 15 per cent of Xerox stock, objected almost immediately to a US$6.1bn deal they said left them as passive investors in a Fuji subsidiary. The deal involved a …

Xerox CEO resigns as company caves to activist investors

Activist investor Carl Icahn and his partner in litigation Darwin Deason have reached a settlement with Xerox in a proxy war and litigation arising out of the January Fujifilm-Xerox transaction. After Fujifilm agreed in January to take control of Xerox, Icahn (who with Deason owned 15 per cent of Xerox) complained he was left …

Fujifilm, Xerox throw each other a US$6.1 billion lifeline

Fujifilm has announced a $US6.1 billion deal to take control of troubled Xerox.

The combined company will …

Mono Magic: Photography, Breaking Bad style

Feature Digital cameras are cheap and convenient. But some people feel they also lack soul, or encourage us all to often to experience life through an LCD screen, firing off hundreds of shots we'll probably never look at, rather than absorbing our surroundings. Film, on the other hand, according to some, can lend itself to a more …

WHOMP! There it is: IBM demos 154TB tape

IBM and Fujifilm have demoed a 154TB LTO-size tape cartridge which could come to market in 10 years' time. While it falls short of the Sony 185TB development, it should, with IBM's tape partnerships, see Sony exit the field. The Sony development involved a 148Gbit/in2 tape density and its own tape design to achieve a 185TB …

IBM prepares to demo 125TB MONSTER tape

IP Expo: Tape Summit IBM has revealed it is preparing a technology demonstration of a 125TB tape, and has revealed that LTO-6 tapes use shingling, with overlapped data tracks. In January 2010, IBM demonstrated a tape with 35TB of raw capacity. Apply LTO-6's 2.5:1 compression ratio to that and you get 87.5TB. This contrasted with the then-current …

Fujifilm X-Pro1 16Mp compact system camera review

For Fujifilm, the fixed-lens retro-styled FinePix X100 camera turned out to be a huge and rather unexpected success. It was only a matter of time to see the company to bank on its popularity and release an interchangeable lens system loosely based on this model. Yet this CSC is no rehash, as it features a new 16Mp sensor design …

Canon PowerShot G1 X compact camera

Review Canon’s ever-popular Powershot G-series has a new and exciting addition that promises to expand the line-up rather than just upgrade it. While the new Powershot G1 X keeps some of the looks and features of its predecessor – the G12 – it also departs from previous models in significant ways. Canon PowerShot G1 X compact camera …

Eight... Rugged Cameras

Product Round-up Has anybody not trashed a digital camera at some point while out and about? Dust or sand, water or ice-cream, the great outdoors ruthlessly claims its tech victims on a daily basis. While manufacturers have busily carved out a niche of rugged ‘adventure-proof’ cameras, the truth is that most people, whether on the slopes, at the …

Fujifilm Finepix X10 compact camera

Review Pulling out a Fujifilm X10 in mid-conversation will often elicit a rapid change of subject. Common responses include, “Oh, now what sort of camera is that?”, “Is that a Leica?” and frequently, “Let me have a go!”. The last of these is one to be relished as, should you hand over the camera, there’s a very strong possibility that …

2011's Best... compact cameras

Xmas Gift Guide 2011 was the year when compact system cameras (CSC) really began to hit their stride. Late to this year’s party were the Nikon 1 J1 and V1 models, but we’re still waiting to on Canon to show its hand in this arena. More to the point, Canon has yet to deliver a successor to its revered PowerShot G12 which is showing its age now. …

Fujifilm Finepix X100 APS-C camera

Review The Fuji FinePix X100 is, of course, a camera for those with more money than sense. Just look at it. Finished in wildly ostentatious silver magnesium alloy with splashes of leather on the grip, the retro viewfinder styling and chunky shutter speed dial evoke the rangefinders of the 1960s and 1970s. Fujifilm Finepix X100 …
