Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 G


Pricing to be confirmed, available this month

With a large constant f/2.8 aperture throughout its focal range of 16mm to 55mm (24mm to 82.5mm in 35mm equivalent), this is a versatile lens for Sony's APS-C E-mount mirrorless cameras.

Two advanced aspherical and two aspherical glass elements suppress chromatic aberration for corner-to-corner sharpness, while three extra-low dispersion glass elements reduce chromatic aberration and colour bleeding to a minimum.

Plus, its nine-blade circular aperture mechanism ensures beautiful bokeh effect.

X-mini Liberty+



Local audio firm X-mini has launched a new pair of true wireless in-ear headphones with the Liberty+. It features 6mm dynamic drivers with graphene coating for clear audio output. Each earbud comes with its own microphone, so you can use each earbud independently.

The Liberty+ is rated at IPX7, meaning it can handle sweaty workouts without issues. It also impresses with its nine-hour battery life, with its charging case providing up to a further 45 hours.

Canon EOS M6 Mark II


$1,249 (body only), available at the end of the month

With its body weighing just 408g and compact enough to fit in a shirt pocket, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II is a mirrorless camera that can be easily carried everywhere. Yet, it features a 32.5-megapixel APS-C image sensor, Canon's Digic 8 image processor for still shooting speeds of up to 30 frames per second, 4K video recording capability and five-axis digital image stabilisation to reduce camera shake.

You can compose your shots using the camera's 3-inch touchscreen display or via the optional electronic viewfinder EVF-DC2.

SuperSolid XG340R



Home-grown monitor brand SuperSolid has delivered another solid PC monitor with the XG340R.

Its 34-inch 21:9 display has a 1500R curvature that is said to complement the human eye's natural curvature for peak immersion. With a resolution of 3,440 x 1,440 pixels, a contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and a fast refresh rate of 100Hz, it is a display that suits both creative professionals and gamers, whether for work or leisure.
