The New Technology That Makes Streaming Concerts Crystal Clear

“We think quality is worth paying for,” said Robert Zimmerman, Chief Executive from the Berliner Philharmoniker as we stood in the confines of the Studio 7 production room high above the stage of this legendary concert venue in Germany’s capital. Quite right too. After all, how many of us look to the internet every time we want something and, more often than not, blag it without a thought for paying anything for the privilege. This is a bad habit we’ve all got into. Read More >>

Panasonic’s TZ200 Puts a Really Big Zoom in a Little Camera

The photos from most smartphones have gotten so good nowadays, they have basically killed the market for point-and-shoot cameras. That said sometimes you need a zoom.

CES 2018: What Is Technics Doing?

The new, modular Technics SP-10R turntable plays records just like any other turntable. But, according to Technics, it plays records really, really, really well.

But the introduction of yet another Technics tribute model—or collector’s item if you’re being honest with yourself—makes you wonder. What exactly is this legendary audio company trying to do?

CES 2018: Uh, Panasonic, I Think You Forgot to Bring the Gadgets

Plenty of people have preconceived notions about the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. “It’s where you can play with cool gadgets!” say the hopeful. “It’s where you can get good schwag!” say the greedy. “It’s where you can establish a vague but thought-provoking imagination of a connected future, one that marries consumer aspirations with business interests!” say very few. This year, Panasonic is among those very few, in my opinion. Read More >>

Panasonic’s New Compact Camera Looks Like the Best, But a Whole Lot Cheaper

Once upon a time Panasonic was among the champs when it came to “step-up cameras”—the high-quality point and shoots that bridged the gap between cheap cameras and pricey DSLRs. But over the last few years, Sony’s RX100 series cameras have taken the crown thanks to a tiny camera body, excellent image quality, and fancy features like a high-speed lens and the ability to shoot high-quality video. The new Lumix LX10 looks like a welcome return to form for Panasonic—aping the RX100's best features and knocking a few hundred off the price. Read More >>
