Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7

Aug 2, 2013

  Panasonic has unveiled its latest addition to the Lumix G range. The Lumix DMC-GX7 brings its retro look and offers a lot of professional options you would find on a DSLR camera. This is an interchangeable lens type of camera so really it stands next to the Sony NEX, Olympus Pen, Samsung NX and Leica Monochrom line-ups. The camera combines its portability and high imaging performance without having to own a DSLR, but at the same time you end with great results. It uses 3-inch touch display which features 1040k-dot high resolution which is also tiltable by 80 degrees up and 45 degrees down. It uses the latest Cell Touch LCD with zero gap meaning the air in between the glass and the screen. With zero gap, that means you will have a brighter and sharper screen and at the same better viewing angle. There is a 16MP Digital Live MOS Sensor on the Lumix DMC-GX7 and has the latest Venus Engine image processor for a higher resolution, sharper and less noise images. The technology behind it (Semiconductor Fine Technology) makes every pixel larger which helps every shot to be brighter and better in saturation. As of today this is the fastest G Series on the marker with a shutter speed of 1/8000 alongside LEICA DG NOCTICRON 42.5mm/F1.2 interchangeable lens for high speed shooting and bigger aperture. Just like other Lumix G cameras it also uses the same focus system which is called Contrast AF. Unlike with other focus systems, the Contrast AF offers faster auto focus speed for capturing fast-moving subjects. While you can’t compare the frames to other interchangeable lens camera like the Olympus OM-D E-M5 for example, the Lumix DMC-GX7 still offers a decent 5 frames per second. The Lumix DMC-GX7 can record a high resolution video at 1920 X 1080 and 50fps and supports AVCHD format for cinematic like videos. It has a continuous auto focus as well which is great for filming as subject’s changes position and therefor you need auto focus to maintain the focus on the subject. There are 22 filters available on the camera such as Expressive, Retro, High Key, Sepia, High Dynamic, Soft Focus,...

Vodafone Australia to Launch Roaming Plans

Jul 31, 2013

    Today, Wednesday 31 July 2013, the CEO of Vodafone Hutchinson Bill Morrow announced the upcoming plans for Vodafone. Starting next month they will be launching a new roaming plan for all the customers. For only $5 a day on top of your plan you will be eligible to use your phone overseas with the same usage as you have in Australia.

Budget iPhone already built?

Budget iPhone already built?

Jul 29, 2013

    An affordable iPhone is set to launch later this year. While it is planned to feature a plastic back to reduce the cost, there are still no confirmation about the actual specifications of the phone. Although in my own perspective, I believe the specifications will be somewhere close to the iPhone 4S. Plastic back isn’t new to Apple. If you remember the first iPhone (3G/3GS) did have a black glossy back. Earlier this last week, YouTube technology host (DetroitBORG) has given us a sneak peek of the budget iPhone. While it’s not a fully completed device, it gave us more hints about the device. By the looks of it seems to have an identical design language as the iPod touch 5th Generation but with iPhone 3G/3GS back. More details on that, a photo of the cheaper iPhone have leaked again except this time it seems like it’s already built. The FCC markings show that this is legitimate and ready to go on sale. My biggest question is, how much will Apple sell the smartphone for? And how “cheap” is cheap? More details about budget iPhone as we hear more...

Microsoft’s $900 Million Loss

Microsoft’s $900 Million Loss

Jul 27, 2013

The sales for Microsoft hasn’t gone too well over the past few months, with a recent statement from Ballmer and COO Kevin Turner in regards to $900 million loss with the Surface RT as well as other Microsoft devices, Windows Phones in particular. Many questions are still being asked to Microsoft about the availability of Instagram on Windows Phones, it really is taking them too long. While the OS has been out for quite some time now the lack of available apps to really enjoy the WP8 experience are missing. Earlier this month, Microsoft (Australia), started running an educational program that for every secondary and tertiary students living in Australia will be able to get the Surface RT (w/o keyboard) for $219. Below are the full price list for Surface RT. Surface RT (32 GB) for AU$219 (RRP AU$559) Surface RT (32 GB) Touch Keyboard Cover for AU$279 (RRP AU$679) Surface RT (32 GB) Type Keyboard Cover for AU$319 (RRP AU$708) While this may sound like a great deal, it’s not going to regain the sales loss of the company. The competition is getting tougher now that Google launched its latest iteration of the Nexus 7. According to the reports, Microsoft is currently in the process of building a new Surface tablet with Snapdragon 800 powering the device.   Source: The...
