New Products, Sept 20, 2017: Fujifilm X-E3, Casio G-Shock Big Bang Black Collection and more


Fujifilm X-E3


$1,499 (body only); available this month

Fujifilm's X-series rangefinder-style mirrorless cameras have a new mid-range model. The X-E3 features a 24-megapixel APS-C X-Trans III image sensor and X-Processor Pro image processor, along with manual dials for shutter speed and exposure compensation.

It even comes with a nifty joystick - found also in the flagship X-Pro2 - that allows the user to move the autofocusing point. But it does lose the hybrid viewfinder that the X-Pro2 has, and uses an electronic viewfinder instead.

Casio G-Shock Big Bang Black Collection


Pricing to be confirmed; available late next month

To commemorate the 35th anniversary of G-Shock next year, Casio has launched the G-Shock Big Bang Black Collection, which comprises five different models.

As black is synonymous with the G-Shock brand, this first commemorative set features a matte black finish, with bright gold for the back of the watch case.

The back of the case is also engraved with the G-Shock 35th anniversary logo, while the metal band loops are emblazoned with a star emblem that represents 35 years. The phrase "Since 1983" is featured on the dials.

Dell Latitude 7285


From $2,399

Designed for business users, the new Dell Latitude 7285 12-inch 2-in-1 is the world's thinnest and lightest Windows-based commercial two-in-one laptop, according to its maker.

Measuring only 7.25mm thick and weighing a mere 680g, it features a Windows 10 tablet with 12.3-inch (2,800 x 1,920 pixels) touchscreen display and detachable keyboard. It is also the world's first two-in-one laptop to support wireless charging.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro


Pricing to be confirmed; available in Q4 2017

If you are looking for a fitness tracker that does it all, consider the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro.

It comes with built-in GPS for tracking of runs and a heart-rate monitor for all-day heart-rate tracking. It is water-resistant down to a depth of 50m.

With the Speedo On app, the Fit2 Pro is able to track your swim data, such as lap count, lap time and distance swum.

It also has automatic activity detection that is able to recognise your activities, from cycling to playing basketball. The Fit2 Pro will be available in red and black.

Razer Basilisk


$109.90; available next month

This gaming mouse is specially designed for gamers who love first-person shooter games.

The Razer Basilisk features a 16,000-dots per inch (dpi) optical sensor for mouse movements of up to 450 inches per sec. It uses Razer's Mechanical Mouse switches for its eight programmable buttons, and comes in an ergonomic right-handed design with rubber side grips.

It also has a removable dpi thumb clutch that allows you to change sensitivity when held down, for more precise aiming.

KEF Q150



The KEF Q150 is a pair of bookshelf speakers that uses the audio company's unique Uni-Q driver array. This innovation places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the mid-range cone for a more detailed and accurate three-dimensional sound.

In addition, it features KEF's Computational Fluid Dynamics port design, with the port being re-positioned to the rear of the speaker for improved clarity. Its small footprint allows the Q150 to be placed anywhere in your living room.
