1. WIRE­LESS BUT TIME­LESS

HWM (Singapore) - - GEAR -

In­tro­duc­ing Mar­shall’s first col­lec­tion of wire­less mul­ti­room speak­ers, the Ac­ton, Stan­more and Woburn. Each packs a wal­lop of power for sheer au­dio per­for­mance, and con­nect wire­lessly through Chrome­cast, Spo­tify Con­nect, Air­Play, Blue­tooth and more. Even though it’s packed with new tech, the speak­ers still share the same time­less look as pre­vi­ous Mar­shall speak­ers.

3. MIN­I­MAL­IST RANGEFINDER

Fuji film’s X- E3 hits the right spot in a lot of ways, with a 24MP X-Trans sen­sor and 4K video cap­ture. It also fea­tures an elec­tronic view finder, po­si­tioned range-finder-style by the side, and a new AF joy­stick. The back is sur­pris­ingly min­i­mal, re­ly­ing more on the touch­screen for con­trol in­stead of a d- pad.

6. THE ON- CAM­ERA FLASH, DE­FINED

The Pro­foto A1 con­tains so many as­tound­ingly good ideas that you won­der why it took so long to make an on- cam­era flash this mod­ern. First, the flash has a round head, which sim­u­lates nat­u­ral light with a smooth fall- out. Se­condly, a mag­netic mount built into the head al­lows you to eas­ily snap mod­i­fiers onto the flash. For ac­cu­racy, there’s even a built- in mod­el­ing light.

10. ZOOM ZOOM

Sony’s superzoom com­pact is back, and it’s faster and more pow­er­ful than be­fore. The RX 10 IV has a new 1- inch type 20.1 MP Ex­mor RS CMOS stacked im­age sen­sor and pairs that with a BIONZ X im­age pro­ces­sor with front- end LSI, so it is able to cap­ture at a stun­ning 24 fps!
