Optrix Extreme Sports Case

Posted: 20 May 2012 08:30 AM PDT

If you love getting an adrenaline rush simply because your life at the office is very boring, then you might want to live it up a little whenever you have ditched the tie and suit. Enter the £69.99 Optrix Extreme Sports Case, which is a device that can be mounted on helmets in a jiffy. Not only that, it is full well capable of being riveted on to handlebars, boards and perhaps even car bonnets if you are up to it. Just like how you need some safety gear for your precious iPhone, just like how you pad yourself up with knee pads and a mouth-guard whenever you get involved in a rough sport or potentially risky activity.

The Optrix Extreme Sports Case will feature special anti-vibration sleds that ensure the video recordings remain nice and smooth. Not only that, the addition of the transparent touchscreen membrane would mean that you are free to review all of the recorded action live, with the option of saving it up for editing later on one of the compatible video Apps. Constructed using military-grade materials and using 'ultrasonic welding' techniques and silicon gaskets, the Optrix Extreme Sports Case is water-resistant to boot, so what are you waiting for?

Sony NEX-F3 digital camera delivers a power packed performance

Posted: 20 May 2012 08:12 AM PDT

Once in a while, we get a digital camera that offers the best of both worlds – a relatively portable size, not to mention a performance level that is high enough to be considered as semi-professional. Well, it is worth noting that the recently announced Sony NEX-F3 digital camera is one of those machinations, where it is capable of shooting professional looking photos despite housing its innards in a compact, pocket-sized chassis. This enables budding shutterbugs to explore the creative world of high-quality, interchangeable lens photography without breaking their back in the process.

The Sony NEX-F3 will come with a similar space-saving mirrorless design that can be found in other models within Sony’s E-mount family, in addition to featuring the more advanced, 16.1-effective megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, which is actually identical in size to the sensors that can be found in traditional DSLR shooters, now how about htat? The large sensor is capable of drinking in more light whenever it wants to capture images, resulting in flawless, low-noise photographs and crisply detailed Full HD videos (60i/24p) if you so desire.

Not only that, photographers with a simple working knowledge of the system can also create images with beautiful defocus effects in a jiffy, where the subject will remain focused sharply against a smoothly blurred background. Want to capture self portraits? That is not a problem, as the NEX-F3 camera will also be able to let you capture decent looking self-portraits for once, thanks to a 180° Tiltable LCD display, which is a first of its kind where Sony’s E-mount camera line is concerned. All you need to do is hold the camera at arm’s length, flipp the LCD screen vertically, make the necessary adjustments via the on-screen preview image, and you are enroute to properly framing your self portraits.

The Sony NEX-F3 will play nice with the FDA-EV1S viewfinder accessory that is sold separately, and will also come with a high-quality, premium-feel grip for a more comfortable handling experience and can be juiced via either USB or a standard AC outlet. Prices start from around $600 onwards, whole those who want the bundle with a new SEL18200LE telezoom lens can pick one up for approximately $850.
