Sony unveils 24.3MP mirrorless flagship

It has the "world's fastest autofocus", Sony claims.

Sony has just taken the wraps of its upcoming mirrorless camera, the α6000, and the company is claiming it has the “world’s fastest autofocus” in its class at 0.06 seconds.

The α6000 puts to work a 24.3MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and a Bionz X processor to rapidly autofocus. Other noteworthy stats include burst shooting at 11 frames per second and a wide ISO range of ISO 100 - 25,600.

Sony has been upgrading the connectivity features across all of its products and the α6000 is no exception. It will use NFC technology to easily pair with Xperia smartphones and Wi-Fi for the transferring of photos. It remains unclear at this stage if this feature will support other NFC-capable Android smartphones.

The α6000 manages to offer plenty in terms of function and accessibility. There are two control dials for quick access and seven programmable buttons. It also has a 3in, 922k adjustable LCD screen, and an electronic 1,444k dot OLED viewfinder.

The new interchangeable camera will be coming to Australia in April. A single lens kit has a recommended retail price of $1199.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

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.
