Canon has launched its third iteration in the EOS Rebel line of DSLRs. Dubbed as Rebel T5i, it looks similar to the company’s T4i model but with a more affordable price.
The Canon Rebel T5i features a CMOS sensor of 18-megapixel APS-C. It’s also packed with the Canon Image Processor of DIGIC 5 and a 100-12,800 ISO range which is expandable of up to 25,600 in H mode. The T5i digital camera is designed to bring images that are crisp and fully detailed in an environment that has low lighting conditions. Its continuous shooting capacity measures at five fps.
The new flagship camera also features cross-type autofocus which has focus of nine points. It supports the popular Live View mode and sports a 3-inch touchscreen LCD at the rear. The camera’s standard kit lens package comes with a new lens dubbed as EF-S 18-55mmf/3.5-5.6 IS STM. Moreover, the camera utilizes the Stepping Motor technology which enables the lens to automatically focus on the subject in a smooth and silent manner.
The camera’s rear LCD is embedded with intuitive touch controls for easy usage especially for those who are first time photographers. Other features include Creative Filters, Night Scene, Multi-Shot Noise Production mode, and HDR Backlight Control.
The camera alone will be publicly available in April with a starting price of $ 749.99. When bundled with the kit lens (18-to-55mm STM lens), the price then becomes $ 899.99. If customers shall desire another bundle feature, it will have the EF-S 18-135mm/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens under the price tag of $ 1099. In comparison, the T4i (with 18-to-135mm lens) costs over $ 1000. Owners of T4i can save more since T5i’s lens kit works perfectly with T4i.
JVC seemingly wants to go beyond the today’s trend of having devices like projectors and TV sets with 4K resolution. Well, its newest venture involves an 8K projector, or at least that was how the company wishes to dub it.
As it can be recalled, way back 2008 during the CEATEC, the firm has introduced a prototype of an 8K Super Hi-Vision projector and now here is the real version of that product, the DLA-VS4800.
The said projector was actually built on just a 4,096 x 2,400 resolution technology however since it throws two images, the resolution is sort of doubled up. The two images are projected at 120Hz alternately with one of them being shifted diagonally by a single pixel which then generates the higher- specifically double- resolution display. In addition, the DLA-VS4800 features JVC’s e-Shift pixel technology, the innovation that was first revealed in some of the released 4K projectors in 2011.
The sort of 8K-resolution projector will be up for sale in the Land of the Rising Sun for £173,000, or around $ 261,000. And just an additional note: the said price doesn’t include paying for even one of the LCD projector’s four optional lenses. In addition, no confirmations yet whether the product will reach other global markets next or not. We’ll find out soon perhaps.
Samsung got much more aside from S4! Indeed apart from the very-much anticipated-slash-intriguing smartphone, the Korean-based company has unveiled a number of other cutting edge devices; one of which is the S9 UHD TV.
Samsung S9 Ultra HD TV with the code name UN85S9 safeguards lofty watching experience with features that uphold both performance and style.
The beastly 85-inch 4K TV prides itself for having Samsung’s Precision Black Pro technology within it that offers superior picture quality. This feature gives relatively high contrast ratio and brings to the screen vivid and pure hues of blacks and whites. It also has the ability to upscale HD and full-HD contents to 4K resolution quality without any trouble thanks to its proprietary up-scaling engine.
In addition, the unit’s Ultimate Dimming control functionality allows users to get the sharpest 4k-resolution in such a monstrous 85-inch display. Not only does the S9 provide for picture quality, it also has a 3-way 2.2 channel of 120 watt sound that caters the audio experience as well. When it comes to the design, Samsung made a stylish innovation. The UHD TV shows off as a floating television within its frame.
Anyone can secure the sleek and impressive Samsung S9 UHD TV by signing the pre-order form from the company by the end of March. And of course, there’s a hefty $ 39,999 expense included.
Leaked information about Canon’s latest EOS Rebel DSLR was unveiled online. The latest member of Canon’s digital camera family is called the EOS Kiss X7/ EOS-b; said to be the smallest DSLR model in its Rebel line-up.
It sports a space-saving architecture that makes it possible to move to the opposite side the AF assist light and it has a hybrid autofocusing mechanism, a second-gen in terms of evolution. Other specs albeit just retreads include a 3-inch LCD, ISO 25,600 sensitivity ceiling and an 18Mp sensor. Not to be forgotten of course is the DIGIC 5 processor and the hybrid CMOS AF II. The package also includes a STM EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS kit lens.
In terms of speed, figures provided include a synchronous second 1/200 and a 30-1/4000 seconds shutter speed. The Kiss X7 is powered by LP-E12 battery and supports Media Sd / SDHC / SDXC. The Kiss X7 weights overall at 407g (battery and memory card inserted) and starts selling in April with a price tag of $ 828 but it looks like it’ll be in Japan first for the equivalent price of ¥79,000. Nonetheless, a U.S. release on the same date seems to be a possibility no one can ignore. A small and light DSLR could be something of great interest to anyone.
Want to experience high-end gaming in an extraordinary but overpriced rig? Try Digital Storm’s Hailstorm II with all its superfast components under the hood. The enclosure is no other than Corsair Obsidian Series 9000 that accommodates dual CPU configuration and four GPUs thereby allowing more than one graphic card and processor to function simultaneously.
With that overworked configuration is equal to overheating and as a remedy, Digital Storm provided a four-radiator liquid cooling system to stabilize temperature and the gameplay, the radiator having sizes from 140mm to 480mm. Big Corsair fans help cool the radiator sucking up air from below and throwing it out atop. In addition to the motherboard’s ports, the following are available, USB 2.0 (4x) and USB 3.0 (2x). The rig also supports 5.25-inch optical drives (5) and SSD bays or mechanical hard drives (9) with three having hot-swapping support.
There’s still room for two power supplies in case of extreme gaming configurations. Hailstorm II comes in a four-level classification with Level I offering Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 in Core i7-3770K and the most powerful Level 4 with three Nvidia Titans in Intel Core i7-3970X. Moderate games can settle for Level I for $ 2,762 while fast gamers can get the Level 4 for $ 8,085 provided they have the cash. The four models have a 3-year warranty.
