10 Items that will Equip You for the Unknown

Hollywood has entertained us, particularly in recent decades, with scenarios of a post-apocalyptic world.

Hands-On Review: Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SP Di VC USD for Canon

Tamron’s brand-new 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SP Di VC USD has generated a lot of attention with its release. This is mainly because it offers Canon, Nikon, and Sony shooters access to the super-telephoto zoom.

Sony FDR-AX100 4K Handycam

Sony has announced two new Handycam camcorders, each with 1” image sensors at CES 2014. A veritable show stopper, the FDR-AX100 is capable of recording 4K Ultra HD video at 30 frames per second and Full HD 1080p at up to 60 fps. The second camera, the HDR-CX900 has a practically identical design and feature set, sans the 4K recording mode. Both cameras represent a significant step forward for Sony’s consumer level camcorders.

Upgrade to an HDTV for The Big Game

As the big game approaches, you may be looking at your aging TV and thinking to yourself, “It’s time for an upgrade”—and frankly, why not? Just because you’re not at the stadium doesn’t mean you can’t have a larger-than-life experience in the middle of your living room.

Binge Watching: A New Level of Over-Indulgence for the Couch Potato

Weekly shows like Full House, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and later on, Buffy, were a staple of my teenage existence, and waiting for the next episode had the anticipatory feel of an upcoming birthday. While they were a source of entertainment, they lent a sense of ritual to many afternoons.
