Meet The All-New, Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS5

Panasonic has unveiled its LUMIX DMC-LS5 digital camera featuring a 14.1Mp, 26mm wide angle, 5x optical zoom lens. This is an entry level camera with top quality features such as HD video recording and 26mm wide angle lens. Owing to its O.I.S feature, the camera is capable of taking crisp pictures even in dim-light situations and has the capability to capture a 720p high definition video.

The camera gets its power from AA batteries which is a little weird as AA batteries don’t last long. However, Panasonic has tried to justify this change by stating that they are aware of the consumers’ different requirements and preferences.

Paper-Thin Sheet Measures Battery Life

Although most smartphones and tablets have built-in rechargeable batteries, there are still many electronics that run on the tried and true AA or AAA batteries. From inexpensive cameras to other types of electronics, batteries are still necessary.

Rechargeable batteries are great because you can just plug them in a wall-charger and not have to repeatedly buy packs and packs of batteries, draining your bank account. But how do you know if your batteries need a recharging?

Sanyo’s New Eneloop Rechargeable Batteries

While Sanyo has been selling its Eneloop rechargeable batteries for a long time, the company recently unleashed its new Eneloop Pro batteries, featuring a power capacity that is 25% greater than previous batteries.

Rather than going through cases of batteries in a year’s time, rechargeable batteries offer the savings, convenience, and environmental awareness needed to keep the planet green. Sanyo recommends using these new batteries for “high drain” devices such as digital cameras or flashlights.

Awesome New Xbox360 Gaming Headsets

I think it is safe to say that the Xbox360 is here to stay. After Microsoft proudly noted that 40% of Xbox360 use is for non-gaming purposes (such as using Hulu plus or Netflix), and the recent mention of Halo 4 due for the 2012 holidays, I think it’s safe to expect the next-generation Xbox to arrive sometime in 2013.

I might be wrong on this, but as you can see from Windows 8 leaks, Microsoft isn’t too good about keeping the clamp on its work, and I am sure we would have heard mention of the next-generation Xbox by now, if there were one.
