The Sun & Cloud by Superheadz Japan is the world’s first “self-generation” digital camera. Capable of motion and still photography, from portrait to macro, atop of the device is a solar panel capable of recharging the battery as an alternative to its USB auxiliary. The unit features a three megapixel lens, built-in LED light for night-time shots and fifteen filters for a variety of different textures. A nifty trinket for the photographer who is looking to add a bit of novelty to her arsenal.

The Metabones Speed Booster is an adapter that allows for a full-frame lens to be mounted on APS-C or Micro Four-Thirds mirrorless cameras, which reduces the focal length by a factor of 0.71x and increases maximum aperture by 1 stop. What this does is that it reportedly generates sharper images and a more responsive camera, making it a great solution for photographers who want SLR-quality images without the bulk that comes along with it.

What I love most about my job is that I get to introduce you all to new experiences, opportunities and things that I find interesting. Daniella and I teamed up a few weeks ago with Sony to launch the VAIO Touch series of computers, laptops and tablets. The event was held in Toronto at the Spoke club and the reception was amazing.
I’ve been playing around with my Sony VAIO Touch Tap 20 for a few months now and I love it! If you attended our influencer event a few weeks ago we announced that we would be giving some devices away to our readers! We would be giving away the device that we were paired up with to introduce. I was paired up with the VAIO Touch Tap 20 and I love it.
A few reason why I love the Tap 20.
1. It’s a 20-inch Touch Pad that also comes with a mouse and a keyboard.
2. It’s portable and you can bring it from room to room or to the kitchen if you want to look at recipes.
3. It comes with battery pack, so when it’s fully charged you can get about 8 hours of battery life without having it plugged into a wall.
4. The touch is intuitive and feels great to the touch.
5. Windowns 8 navigates really well on the device.
6. The Sony SOCIAL LIFE app allows you to connect with all of your social networks in one place.

These look so good! Some headphone companies are making it a point to become the fashion accessory. Teaming up with Harris Tweed for headphones is brilliant in my opinion. Let’s hope if you get these that your style matches the pair.
This is really cool. I need one of these ASAP!

A few weeks ago I was in Miami with Microsoft and I got introduced to so many new and exciting things from the brand. One thing in particular was their new lineup of phones. I’ve had a chance to play around with it for a few weeks and I have to say that love it. Let me explain why.
1. 16 Megapixel Camera ( Do I have to say more?)
2. Voice Recognition – Use your voice to text or call people, start apps or search the web.
3. Local Scout – Find nearby restaurants,shops and things to do right from a button on your phone.
4. Translate any text to your language of choice from one touch on your phone. (Great for travellers)
5. Maps- I’ve never used a more comprehensive map on any other device, even a car navigation systems.
I love a lot more things about the phone but I just wanted to share the ones that I use all the time.

The folks at DELL gifted me with a brand new Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook and it is very sexy. The laptop is very light is about the size of a 15 inch macbook air. I had the chance to play around with the device and I like it. A few details I like is the gorilla screen which protects it from shattering and the carbon fiber detailing. I gave some of my peers the chance to play around with the device at the launch event at the W hotel in Montreal.
