Sony unveils 24.3MP mirrorless flagship

It has the "world's fastest autofocus", Sony claims.

Sony has just taken the wraps of its upcoming mirrorless camera, the α6000, and the company is claiming it has the “world’s fastest autofocus” in its class at 0.06 seconds.

The α6000 puts to work a 24.3MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and a Bionz X processor to rapidly autofocus. Other noteworthy stats include burst shooting at 11 frames per second and a wide ISO range of ISO 100 - 25,600.

Sony has been upgrading the connectivity features across all of its products and the α6000 is no exception. It will use NFC technology to easily pair with Xperia smartphones and Wi-Fi for the transferring of photos. It remains unclear at this stage if this feature will support other NFC-capable Android smartphones.

The α6000 manages to offer plenty in terms of function and accessibility. There are two control dials for quick access and seven programmable buttons. It also has a 3in, 922k adjustable LCD screen, and an electronic 1,444k dot OLED viewfinder.

The new interchangeable camera will be coming to Australia in April. A single lens kit has a recommended retail price of $1199.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
