Cameras

The hardest things to escape from today are capitalism and consumerism. A portmanteau of both would mean mindless materialism, but a winning combination of the two would be an educated consumer (that’s you!) who is empowered to make informed decisions and wise purchases. This is what the Gear vertical wants to help our readers achieve, and our mission begins now!

Set your sights on better security with the new Arlo Ultra security camera

Set your sights on better security with the new Arlo Ultra security camera

Home surveillance and monitoring are still on the minds of Singaporeans even with how safe the country has been. According to The Economist’s 2017 Safe Cities Index, Singapore ranks second just behind Tokyo, Japan, which clinched the world’s safest city spot. To alleviate concerns of homeowners,  Arlo launched their new home security camera onto the shores of Singapore – the Arlo Ultra. The device is the top-of-the-range out of their camera system line-up, and the Arlo Ultra has the capability to capture a 4K resolution video with High Dynamic Range (HDR) so that users can get the sharpest detail possible…

Canon launches two new iNSPiC models, but could make do with only one

On Monday, 17 June 2019, Canon launched its first instant camera printer – available in two models – for its Mini Photo Printer lineup which includes a fresh logo and a revamped branding for the range. The rebranded iNSPiC line stems from the words ‘inspiring pictures’, precisely encapsulating the intentions of the new additions. The iNSPiC [C] and iNSPiC [S] series join the line-up as pocket-sized instant camera printers that combine image capturing capabilities with the instant gratification of compact mini printers. The iNSPiC cameras were carefully designed to be stylish and lightweight – the perfect must-have for parties and…
Canon EOS R: Same same but lighter

Canon EOS R: Same same but lighter

Every waking moment, another full-frame mirrorless camera is released. Not one to miss the boat, Canon steps up their game and delivers its very own Canon EOS R, equipped with the also new RF mount. The Canon EOS R is basically the dream of every (Canon-loving) photographer just two years ago — lightweight… capable… coming with edge-to-edge focusing… and even lenses that dwarf the existing EF lineup… Truly an immaculate piece of equipment. Yet, I didn’t think much of it, other than a sneak peek of what Canon has to offer in the mirrorless world. It didn’t seem to be…

We’re talking about close to $150 a day just for a decent body and lens! But hey, wonderful news for all of us who are dying to create…

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Is A Rich Man’s Upgrade

Excuse us because we’ve just come across possibly the best camera on Earth currently (and this is only the faintest of exaggerations). It’s also left one of our editorial staff feeling rather faint; absolutely giddy with excitement. Meet the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II – Canon’s new flagship model for 2016, a real powerhouse of photography and videography with 20.2Megapixels of muscle. But all that flexing didn’t harm its speed as it has an astounding 16 frames per second Live View and 14 FPS with full AE/AF. Plus an impressive ISO range from 100 to 51200, up to an expanded 409600.

Canon Singapore Launches The Canon eShop

Canon Singapore Launches The Canon eShop

We’ve come a long way in terms of technological advancements, but shopping from home is definitely one of the most ingenious marks of progress in the 21st century. As a spoken statement, “I am shopping in my pyjamas” used to be synonymous with laziness and a shocking disregard for Orchard Road’s dress code, but it is now a hallmark of the Internet generation, represented by millions of tech-literate people who complete half of their day’s to-dos while still in the general vicinity of their bedroom. This is the future, and Canon fully respects that. Canon Singapore has launched the Canon eShop –…
