Canon 6D Mark II and Rebel SL2 DSLRs Announced

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

After much speculation and anticipation, Canon took the wraps off two new eagerly-awaited DSLRs this week. The Canon EOS 6D Mark II and Rebel SL2 bring significant updates to two of the most popular Canon DSLRs, and are likely to be among the hottest new cameras this year.

The 6D Mark II updates its predecessor on nearly every front, presenting a refined full-frame option aimed squarely at intermediate and professional users. A bump in resolution, to 26.2 megapixels, will provide more detail in photos, while an updated autofocus system—including the highly-regarded Dual Pixel phase-detect AF from the EOS 80D—will help users utilize that resolution to capture sharply-focused photos.

Five Essentials for Your Summer Beach Get-Together

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

Summer is here, and for those of us lucky enough to live in close proximity to a body of water with sandy shores, that means one thing: it’s time to hit the beach! In addition to sunscreen and a swimsuit, here are our picks for the products that will make your summer day on the water a little more fun.

YETI Hopper Portable Cooler

The cooler is an essential component of any beach or outdoor party kit. But it’s time to leave behind the cumbersome, boxy coolers of the past and opt for something a little easier to lug around, like the soft-sided Yeti Hopper. Part cooler and part duffel bag, the Yeti Hopper Two 20 offers the brand’s same legendary cold-keeping capabilities, in a flexible package that you can throw over a shoulder. It holds 18 cans of your favorite beverage (plus ice to keep them cool) or twenty pounds of ice. And don’t let that cushiness deceive you—the Yeti Hopper is still leakproof and extremely rugged.

Best of CES 2017: Our Favorite Gadgets

Monday, January 9th, 2017

In a sea of biggest, brightest new products you can imagine from the industry powerhouses, sometimes it’s the clever, small items that catch your eye the most. Here are some of our favorite gadgets from CES 2017.

iPowerUp Solar Charging Phone Case

Solar-powered phone cases are nothing new, but good solar-powered phone cases are. In our experience, the cases typically never meet their claimed specs, taking much longer than expected to deliver any worthwhile juice to your phone. So we’re optimistic that the iPowerUp cases live up to their claims. Thanks to refinements in photovoltaic technology, the extra-efficient panels on this case can produce 450-500 mAh of power in one hour of sun exposure. That means a typical smartphone battery should be charged to full capacity in five to six hours.If the iPowerUp Solar Case lives up to its claims, we can see this being one of the year’s most popular iPhone accessories.
