Anti-Gravity Case


I'm always amused when findgin a gadget so obvious that nobody has ever imagined before.
The anti-gravity case is a typical example. Anti-gravity is a "big word". Nano-suction case seems more appropriate. Regardless the marketing word, I like the idea.

Fujifilm X-A3


While the new Canon EOS camera is due to arrive in September, for the following month Fujifilm has announced a new upgrade to their X-A series, the X-A3.
Definitely not the level of sophistication of the new Canon, but roughly 5 times cheaper! The X-A3 mirrorless camera has now a 24.2 megapixels CMOS sensor. Additional new features include a flip screen to take selfie, smile detection and skin-tone improvements.

This is an excellent camera to take selfies with nice sceneary in the background for your social-media sites. As far as choosing a new camera, I would definitely prefer investing more in the new Canon EOS. The X-A3 is set to arrive in October, with a price in the US$600 range with the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II kit lens.

SSD Backup Drive


Using the "cloud" to store all your files, photos, videos on external drives is not always possible, especially while traveling in location with no or slow internet. In fact, I prefer to keep my own backup. The SSD technology is definitely a big improvement to keep all your data with you, and the capacity is increasing very fast. The latest drive from Samsung is the 4TB 850 EVO SSD.

Small 3.9 x 2.8 x 0.3", light 54grams, and fast 540MB/s read and 520MB/s to write.
In case 4TB is not enough, the recently announced 16TB SSD, the largest capacity hard drive, is based on the same V-NAND flash memory architecture, and should cost around $6,000.
