  • The Canon 80D costs about the same as the Canon M5.
    The Canon M5 is a miniature version of the 80D.
    If you can afford the 80D but want a much smaller pocketable travel-friendly version, get the...

  • "Too pricey for beginners"? The Sony A6300 costs the same but lenses are very expensive. And the Sony A6300 can't do 4K without quickly overheating. So it is essentially a 1080p camera.

  • Apple still makes over 90% of the profits in the smartphone market. Every one of the iPhone 6 and 6s users want to upgrade. And there are 270 million of them.

    Apple is also number 2 in the world...

  • It is now 2016. The Lytro Illium was released in 4/2014 - more than 2 years ago. Initially $1500, it is now sells for $360. It is still limited to 4 megapixels of resolution of specialized...
