Wearable technology is all the rage this year, with smart watches grabbing many of today's headlines. However, it's easy for me to point the finger at GoPro's Hero digital cameras line that brought the "cool factor" to the wearable tech category. These mini recording devices can be mounted on a user's head, helmet, chest, wrist and much more, including surfboards, ski helmets and automobiles—the possibilities of how they can record are endless.

A few years ago I had my bicycle stolen right off my balcony; the irony is that it was only there because my new bike rack was being installed. The evidence that I had to present to the police? Precisely nothing. That’s why I like the stuff that Lorex has been putting out; I’ve done a number of reviews on their security systems over the past year or so, and each time I’ve been impressed with how easy they are to use. They’ve taken “plug and play” to a whole new level with the LW1742 Wireless Video Surveillance System, coming first to Future Shop in Canada. Read on and I’ll tell you why.

It took me a while to wrap my head around how far we’ve come with action cameras. They’re smaller, tougher, and more usable than they’ve ever been… and prices incredibly low for what you get in the box. There are a number of Sony Action Cams on the market, but Sony’s HDR-S100VR POV HD Action Cam with Live View Remote is a perfect example: an amazingly capable device with a powerful accessory, coming in for less than half of what I paid for my first digital camera. The best part: it offers some of the best performance in an action cam on the market. Read on to find out more.

There’s a movement afoot just about everywhere to make things more accessible to everyone. That’s a great thing in a lot of cases… but when it comes to artisan tools it’s not. Making things hyper-accessible can mean making them less powerful, and it takes a brave manufacturer to say “no, we want to make something incredible for a small group of people.” That manufacturer is Fujifilm, and that camera is the Fujifilm X-T1.

The lens of your camera is a beautiful way to connect to the places you visit and the majesty of nature while youre there.
