Must-Have Gadgets And Gizmos
Technology is an undeniable part of our lives, right from the cell phone to the television, from the refrigerator to the microwave, without technology today we can rightly claim to be handicapped. A look at some cool technology that is cool to use.
Apple’s AirPort Express:
Apple’s AirPort Express, is a single hardwired connection that enables you to get all your connections in — even if it’s a pair of laptops, two or three phones and a tablet — without you having to pay insane rates that hotel rooms usually charge per connection.
True, many hotels offer gratis Ethernet connections but charge for WiFi, this will help circumvent the issue.
The Kindle E-Reader:
The Kindle E-Reader is a 300 gm device that holds around 200 books. Whispernet, Amazon’s built-in wireless service that delivers books on demand in seconds. The jetBook colour e-reader to be launched later has a speed reading course, vocabulary builder, and wireless access to online textbooks.
The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS:
Experiencing a place when you travel is a feeling unparalleled, but sometimes memories may not last. If one is in a scenic place like the Himalayas or on the sands of Kerala, we need a camera that can help preserve the moment for a lifetime.
That’s where travel compacts come in. This type of camera is designed basically with the traveler in mind and brands fit large optical zoom lenses in the slim profile of compact cameras which allow easy portability.
The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is one such camera. Featured in the 2012 line-up of compact cameras, this model boasts of a 20x zoom lens and an image stabilizer that allows one to capture blur-free images with the camera’s zoom set to maximum. It uses a 12.1MP CMOS sensor and features the latest DIGIC 5 image processor which allows one to capture full resolution images at a rate of 10.3fps in high-speed burst HQ.
When it comes to the ease of use, Canon cameras are one of the simplest ones available in the market, allowing even first-time digital camera users to start clicking away without any hassle. For those interested in fine-tuning settings, the SX260 also features manual controls allowing one to precisely set aperture, shutter speed, etc. The performances found here are great and the image stabilizer works well to negate blur. This camera is designed practically for anyone and not only those who need an option for their journeys.
Panasonic DMC-TZ25 has been in the game of super zoom cameras for quite some time and with this model, they up the ante and add a 16x optical zoom with a view equivalent of 24-384mm on a 35-mm lens.
One of the most outstanding features of this camera is the image stabilizer which can be classified as one of the best right now. Be it far-off shots or super close-ups, the camera delivers on all fronts. It is fitted with a 12.1MP MOS sensor and a 3-inch display that provides sufficient detail while reviewing images on the camera.
This brand, too, has added manual controls here allowing one to play around with the different settings. The price is another advantage of the camera, which is priced competitively for a travel compact.
