There it is, object of desire for countless cohorts of photographers out there. When it comes to the flagship products such as this one, it doesn’t really matter whether you’re a Canon or Nikon fanboy. Even a hardcore Hasselblad fanatic would at least appreciate the technical thought put into this little gem. Enough theory, let’s look at the facts. For a mere £4600 you can become the owner of Nikon D3X and use it’s 24.5 megapixel FX format CMOS sensor, Multi-CAM3500FX 51-point AF system, 920k dots 3-inch VGA LCD monitor and 5 fps continuous burst. Obviously the functionality will largely depend on your collection of lenses but the potential for greatness is obviously there.
Is it worth the money? Well, of course it is. It’s a tool and given the segment of market it’s clearly aimed for there should be no doubt it will be used to earn money. Even hardcore enthusiasts would choose the less pricey Canon d5 Mark III or Nikon d800.
No, it’s not an overgrown Casio. What you’re looking at is a bad-ass device that will guide you to any location with a GPS while making sure that your heart rate stays ok with a heart rate monitor. This Sportswatch represents a popular line of gadgets (although you may argue that this one is technically more of an actual tool rather than a mere gadget) incorporating multiple functionality in a compact form, conveniently worn instead of a conventional watch.
Although the producer is a bit shy on stating battery life, you can expect it to last at least for the length of an all-day outdoors adventure. Purchase also gives you access to worldwide Garmin Connect service where you can check previous routes. Manufacturer also claims that the GPS module is able to track satellites even near tall buildings and under the tree cover. Sounds good, wonder how it works in real life use. Anyone interested with purchase can bag this little fella for as little as £150.
The latest addition to Google’s Nexus line-up is hardly a luxury priced product with UK prices starting at only £319. The new tablet’s guts however are nothing to frown upon with mouth watering resolution and speedy processor. It it a serious competition for the New iPad? Definitely so, especially considering how Apple’s zealots were disappointed after the release of updated version of the flagship tablet – same money, just much better specs.
With a dazzling 2560-by-1600 high-resolution display and powerful graphics processor, Nexus 10 places you right inside the action with picture-perfect performance.
Is what Google has to say about the experience of using the new piece of tablet goodness and I have no reason to doubt. Especially when you add the GPS and NFC functionality, there’s very little reason to pay extra for an Apple product. Google Nexus 10 is clearly a better priced alternative and a good excuse to shift mass loyalty from one brand to another. Time will show how this duel shall end but for now you can place your pre-orders on Google Play website.
