News from Deutschland

CANON_EOS_6D-VANITY.jpeg
Every other year we send our imagining team across the pond to Cologne, Germany to attend Photokina, the world's largest imaging trade show. Dodging schnitzel, weissbier, and strudel, we've been publishing tons of first impressions and videos. We've seen Canon's new sub-$3,000 video-friendly full frame DSLR, Olympus's micro four thirds lens no thicker than a lens cap, a smartphone control wireless camera from Panasonic, and a tiny interchangeable-lens camera from Pentax. We've also seen updates on some classics, like the Pentax K-5 II and the Leica M, which has finally combined 1080/30p HD video to Leica's legendary design, image quality, and unbelievably high price tag ($7,000). Check back daily until the 23rd for the latest news.

Top 3D TVs

Some people prefer their characters to stay behind the bars of an LCD screen, where they can be safely observed. But for those who are willing to wear another pair of glasses over their glasses, it's easy for your villains to grab the third dimension and jump out. In our roundup of the year's top 3D TVs, we make sense of active vs. passive technology and give you some solid choices from Toshiba, Vizio, Samsung, and LG.

KitchenAid KERS5053

With that stainless steel attitude, the KitchenAid KERS505XSS impressed us in our tests with quick preheating and boiling abilities, scoring quite well in our lineup. Sure, this $1,750 (MSRP $2,000) monolith might offer far more than the average user needs, but chefs and bakers who mean business will appreciate the double oven setup, fifth heating element, bread proofing options, and unique KitchenAid design language make your intentions obvious to all who enter your kitchen.

Sony MDR-V6

The headphone world is divided into two camps: the fashionistas and the audiophiles. A standby of the latter, the classic Sony MDR-V6 shows that top-notch audio quality needn't break the bank. For under $100, the MDR-V6 offers studio-like frequency response, tracking, and workhorse durability. While they aren't endorsed by any former members of N.W.A., aren't brightly colored, we feel these are still a fashion statement, for they tell the world you care about music more than style.
