Canon Europe has announced an upgrade to two of its L-series lenses, with the launch of the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM. The 70-200mm lens has been useful for professional, semi-professional and photography enthusiasts for many years, thanks to the ability to easily change image composition by switching from standard to telephoto. This adaptability means both lenses can capture a wide range of subjects, from portraits to wildlife, reaffirming the role the 70-200mm lens plays in a photographer’s kit bag.
LG Q7 smartphone
The recently announced LG Q7 smartphone offers premium features typically found in more expensive flagship smartphones, but at a more affordable price.
It builds on the previous models’ foundation, with even more high-end features like portrait mode, DTS:X Virtual Surround Sound, water and dust resistance and a fingerprint sensor on the back for added security as well as upgraded 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM which is also expandable.
The LG Q7 also features a 2.5D Arc Glass design with rounded-edges that makes the device comfortable to hold and operate with one hand. Its smart rear key fingerprint sensor is located below the camera lens to allow users to unlock the phone easily and it also doubles as the camera shutter button or to take screenshots and control the notification bar.
The LG Q7 will be available for R5 999 on pre-paid and from R349 on contract from Vodacom and Cell C.
