After spending two weeks with Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M3 it has become a go-to model for me to recommend to all of my friends and family who are tired of blurry, dark shots and under performing smartphones. It’s not the holy grail of cameras… but it’s pretty close. Read on to find out why.

Why do we travel? For many it’s a chance to experience new things, see new places, and meet new people. Sharing these things with our friends and family through beautiful, fun, and one-of-a-kind pictures is one of the best parts; preserving a perfect moment make it last a lifetime. When you’re traveling with your Canon Digital SLR camera you have a wide range of choice of lenses to bring with you.

Review: Sony Alpha A6000 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera

The box for the  Sony Alpha A6000 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera is deceptively small, just like the camera itself. I’ve been in the Sony Alpha family since the A350, and even my most recent purchase (the A35) is a hand-filling device. The A6000, on taking it out of the box, had me first asking “where’s the rest of it?”

 

I suppose I should be used to this by now: camera manufacturers are packing a hell of a lot of camera into a small packages. With that in mind I pulled the A6000 out of the box, sorted the accessories, and got to work on finding out what it’s like and who it’d be great for. Read on, true believers.

Compared: Canon's Rebel T5 and Rebel T5i Digital SLR Cameras

The letter i has been an important distinction for many brands over the past few years; notably adding it to “Pod”, “Phone”, and “Pad” has been a recipe for success for a certain brand. Canon has had “i” added to their Tx line of cameras since the venerable T2i, and the T5i was the latest in this line-up in 2013. 

 

In early 2014 Canon announcing the upcoming release of a new camera in the Tx family: the T5. It was like the T5i - better in some feature categories, while the T5i was better in others. Suitably confused yet? Yeah, me too. That’s why we’re taking a look at these cameras today and deciphering who they’re for, because there’s an audience for both. Let’s get moving and find out which one is right for you, yeah?

Review: Lorex Wireless Video Surveillance System and Lorex Wireless Security Camera System

There are plenty of things that leave me feeling insecure. Public speaking on short notice. Barbecuing in front of a group of male friends. Having my bike stolen from my patio. 

 

There’s a solution for all of these, but out of the three, only protecting my bike is something I can solve without therapy. That’s where Lorex comes in; I’ve talked about Lorex in the past (that’s Lorex Security cameras, not the Lorax who speaks for the trees) and I liked their wireless products. I have two new options from Lorex with me today: The Wireless Video Surveillance System and the Wireless Security Camera System. They have similar names, and do similar jobs, but there’s one pretty cool difference that sets them apart. Let’s take a look.

Going hands on with the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS for the first time was an interesting experience for me; it’s been almost a decade and a half, and I’m still a little surprised by cameras that aren’t black or silver. The SX600 I pulled out of the box is white with silver accents, and it’s a compact, good looking little camera. The question everyone wants to know: how good is it?? Let’s take a look and find out!
