The colourful and rugged Ricoh PX Series

Ricoh will launch its PX Series camera in late June. The company describes the PX Series as being 'adventure proof': it will be waterproof to 3m and shockproof up to 1.5m. Additionally, it will be dustproof, dirt-proof and sand-proof. The best part is it will have a recommended retail price of just $299.

The Ricoh PX Series will have a scratch-resistant 2.7in screen, a 16-megapixel CCD sensor and a 5x optical zoom lens with a range of 28-140mm. It will feature similar technology to Ricoh's CX Series cameras for processing images, as well as offering a virtual boost to the zoom, allowing users to capture photos up to 280mm.

Other features of the PX Series include a start-up time of only 1.4sec, auto scene selection, subject tracking and face recognition focusing, and a range of creative filters.

The PX Series of cameras will allow for personalisation, too, as Ricoh will have a range of different colour protective sleeves for the cameras, including pink, yellow, blue, brown and white.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
