Its most striking features are its compactness – it’s 125mm wide, 102mm high and 122mm deep – and a large grip that can rotate upwards and downwards by about 90 degrees, helping users get shots from low or high angles.
A tilting LCD monitor makes it easier to capture such awkward shots. The included optical loupe viewfinder attaches to the back of the unit for a traditional perspective on the shot.
The XC10 has a 12MP, 1″ CMOS sensor with a top ISO of 20000. A 4K Frame Grab feature yields 8.29MP images from 4K video shot at 30 frames per second.
The camera has a slot for ultra high-speed CFast 2.0 memory cards, to which it can record at up to 305Mb/s using the Intra Frame 4K video compression format. It can also record in full HD to an SD card at 50Mb/s.
Jawbone’s latest activity tracker, the UP3, is finally ready for release after months of delays. Slated for last Christmas, Jawbone has admitted defeat on its promise of water-resistance up to 10 metres. It’s splashproof and that’s about it.
Unlike previous UP bands, this version can measure wearers’ resting heart rate – though not active heart rate – and adds advanced sleep tracking to measure the quality of wearers’ sleep. Jawbone says it has a battery life of up to seven days.
Release is US-only for now with vague promises of an international release for later this year.
Dell Venue 10 7000
The 10.5″ OLED screen displays images at a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. And at 6.2mm, the tablet is a hair thicker than Apple’s iPad Air 2. It weighs 598 grams and will be available with up to 32Gb of storage and 2Gb of DRAM.
It runs Android 5.0 on a quad-core Intel Atom chip code-named Moorefield. Other features include a 2MP front camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and micro-SD slot.
