HTC RE Camera

Whenever Li Xiang got a gadget as a present, I get to keep it because she is not into gadgets! The HTC RE Camera was given to her by her company’s client.

The HTC RE Camera is HTC’s take of the GoPro for the normal consumers like me who are not into extreme sports. The RE Camera isn’t shockproof but it is waterproof rated at IPX7 and that means it can be submerged into water of up to 1m for 30 minutes.

Sony HDRAS20/B Action Video Camera

I always wanted a GoPro camera, but I can’t justify spending so much money on a extreme-action video camera because I might not use it often.

I saw the Sony HDRAS20 Action Video Camera and Sony 16GB Class 10 Micro SDHC R40 Memory Card being sold as a bundle on Amazon for US$97 (S$128). It is not Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day but rather sort of a pre-black Friday deal. I bought it because it was a very good deal despite it does not ship to Singapore directly.

Breffo Adventure Camera Tripod

Breffo Adventure Camera Tripod is a versatile tripod that allows you to hang, grip, hold and stand on almost any surface. The tripod is coated with a layer of advanced soft touch rubber coating that makes it waterproof and durable.

I like the grip and friction of the rubber coating, it makes the tripod more stable when gripping on a rounded surface like a pole.

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III Will Be Available In Singapore From June 2014

The much anticipated Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III will be available in Singapore from June 2014 for S$1,199. It is not really a successor to the popular Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II because the RX100 II will still be on sale targeting a different audience because of the cheaper, S$899, price point.

For the RX100 III, Sony updated the lens to ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm F1.8-2.8, added a retractable OLED Tru-Finder aka Electronic viewfinder (EVF) and changed the LCD so that it can be tilted 180° to take selfie photos.

Sony NEX-3N

Bought the Sony NEX-3N from Amazon when they have a lightning deal on the 13th January 2014 and hence it cost only US$289.99 (S$370)!

HopShopGo received the package on the 18th January 2014 with a chargeable weight of 3KG, but HopShopGo offers a repack option for a slight fee and hence it cuts down the chargeable weight to just 1KG! So shipping just cost me US$20.32 (S$26). I am a HopShopGo Prime Member, so your discount may varies!
