Nikon D3500

DSLR

$799 (with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens), available on Sept 20

For those looking for an affordable step-up from smartphone to DSLR camera photography, the Nikon D3500 is a great option.

This entry-level DSLR camera comes with a 24.2-megapixel APS-C image sensor and an autofocusing (AF) system with 11 AF points. It features a slim and lightweight monocoque structure with a deep grip for a firm hold of the camera. With built-in Bluetooth connectivity, it can automatically transfer photos to your smartphone via the SnapBridge app (Android and iOS).


DJI Mavic 2 Pro

DRONE

$2,149, available next month

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone is the first in the world to have an integrated camera by medium-format camera maker Hasselblad.

The 20-megapixel camera has a 1-inch image sensor that offers four times more colour channels than its predecessor, the Mavic Pro. Its aperture can be adjusted from a wide f/2.8 to a small f/11 for different shooting conditions.

The Mavic 2 Pro retains its foldable and portable chassis for easy storage during travelling.


LifeProof Next for Galaxy Note9

SMARTPHONE CASE

$119

If you want the ultimate protection for your new Samsung Galaxy Note9 smartphone, the LifeProof Next could be the case for you.

It offers great protection in a slim and pocket-friendly form. The two-piece outer shell protects the phone from drops of up to 2m, while its inner lining seals the phone from dirt, dust and snow.

Its audio-transparent mesh covers keep the speakers free of debris, while a transparent back allows the Note9's sleek design to show.


Diesel Full Guard 2.5

SMARTWATCH

From $549, available next month

The Diesel Full Guard 2.5 might look like a regular watch with its large 47mm case and over-sized lugs, but it is actually a Wear OS smartwatch.

It comes with a heart-rate monitor, built-in GPS for tracking runs and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for cashless payments.

It will be available in four styles: matt steel case with black leather strap, gunmetal steel case with brown leather strap, matt black steel case with black silicone strap and all-over gunmetal stainless-steel case with metal bracelet.

Ultimate Ears Boom 3

BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS

They have withstood more than 25 durability tests, allowing them to be certified dust-, drop-and waterproof, according to their maker.
