Snugg iPhone 5s Ultra Thin Clear Case

I have been using the Power Support – Air Jacket Set (Clear) for iPhone 5/5s for quite sometime and I was skeptical about finding another clear iPhone 5s case that is just as good.

I was surprised that the Snugg iPhone 5s Ultra Thin Clear Case was pretty well built considering it is only retailing for US$14.99 (excluding shipping).

· · · Camera

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.
