Nikon D810


Step up your shots with this 36.3-megapixel full-frame digital SLR camera by Nikon.

It offers the ability to record in full high-definition video, letting you record 1,080p movies at 60 frames per second (fps).

For low-light shots, the wide ISO range of 64 to 12,800 helps to deliver rich detail in every shot.

The Expeed 4 image-processing engine and the new CMOS sensor crunch data quickly, allowing for continuous shooting at 5fps in full-frame format, and 7fps in cropped format - great for shooting still and moving subjects.


Rain Design iSlider


If you are looking for a high-quality stand for your Apple iPad, the iSlider is worth considering. Weighing 230g, the iSlider's stand slides into the base, making it more compact. A carrying bag is also included for extra portability.

The iSlider's aesthetic suits the iPad. Its anodised sandblasted aluminium case mirrors Apple's design. The stand has support for multiple viewing and typing angles.

It supports both landscape and portrait orientations.


Creative MuVo mini


Creative's latest offering is a travel-friendly wireless speaker which uses Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth and has a range of 10m or so.

Creative claims the MuVo's hardy enclosure can withstand all kinds of weather, so it should be fine for use at the beach or park, or in the bathroom. Its battery is good for up to 10 hours of audio playback.


Asus Zenfone 6


Asus' new Zenfone 6 boasts a 6-inch screen with a 1,280 x 720 high-definition display, paired with an energy-efficient Intel Atom Z2580 2.0GHz processor.

The smartphone's 13-megapixel rear camera has a back-illuminated sensor to improve low-light performance and a wide aperture f/2.0 lens for clearer shots.

A 2-megapixel front camera facilitates selfies and high-resolution video calls.

The dual micro-SIM smartphone runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.3 and weighs 196g.

The 3,300mAh battery is built to last for up to 28 hours of 3G talk time. The Zenfone 6 is available in black, white or red.
