We love giving away high-tech gadgets — as we’ve proven in the past weeks — but we want to take a step back for a week and raffle off something more fun: a Paper Shoot camera!
We’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the simplistic camera since reviewing it a couple of months ago. The demand has been consistently high, so we decided to get in touch with its distributor for a special giveaway.
Powered by two AAA batteries and made mostly of paper, this camera is still as real as its gets for a digital shooter. The only difference here is it’s a lot more straightforward to use, and much more fun!
The best news? We’re giving away three of these in this week’s Scavenger Hunt!

Father’s Day Gift Guide: Give back to our dads!
We made you a list so you won’t have to worry
Father’s Day is just around the corner!
Take the chance to give back and send some love. Here’s a quick list of things you can give your dad:
Give him a smartwatch to track the important things in life
The Fossil Q Commuter is a hybrid smartwatch that doesn’t look like one. It’s classic and stylish, and it uses smart technology to keep your dad updated with all the important things in life.
A camera to capture all the moments and experiences
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic has that timeless retro look that even I really dig. It instantly prints your photos and is perfect for those who treasure every moment.
Give him a smartphone that gets things done
They always give their best for us, and it’s our chance to give them back the best. The Huawei P20 Pro is a leading smartphone in the market today, a match for the dad who’s always aiming to be on top!
A wireless speaker he can bring wherever he goes
If he loves to move and groove, a JBL Flip 4 might be what he needs. It’s loud and it’s waterproof so he’ll have his sounds anytime, anywhere.
Give him a power bank so he’s always charged up
Make sure he’s connected by having his devices charged all the time. The Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 is pocketable and it’s packed with power. He’ll never be disconnected again!
Get him a wallet that protects his valuables
Give him the SERMAN BRANDS 1.0 wallet, equipped with RFID secure technology that will protect him from any unauthorized scans. It also comes in Texas Brown and is stylishly slim in genuine leather.
Give him the gift of adventure
If you’re feeling really generous, give him the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. It’s a tough vehicle made for adventures. When was the last time your dad went to the great outdoors for some fun? Surely, that was ages ago. Let him enjoy his time!
Fujifilm X-T100 hands-on: Serious looking with a selfie screen
Yep, a flip-out screen and an EVF!
Fujfilm’s latest camera release, the X-T100, looks like the traditional Fujifilm cameras we know and love, plus it has a flipitty screen (a term I’ve used to refer to that camera screen that flips out).
Full disclosure: I’m a sucker for flippity screens, and, in fact, I got myself Fujifilm’s entry-level X-A3 last year precisely for that reason. But, what can the new X-T100 do? Is it my next vlogging camera? Who is this camera made for? I got a chance to get handsy with the new device and here are some thoughts on the new camera.
This is the Fujifilm X-T100 announced just last month. It looks more like it’s from the X-T line than the entry-level, fun-colored X-A line. It’s definitely a serious-looking shooter.
It has a solid textured black body and metal details that come in black, dark silver, or gold. This particular unit is the champagne gold version.
In true Fujifilm fashion, controls and dials are up top. There’s also a new function dial on the camera’s left side with 18 assignable functions. Perfect for users who like their cameras personalized — more shortcuts to make this camera truly your own! This thing also has a hot shoe unlike some of Fujifilm’s entry-level cameras. This means you can attach an external mic since this camera has an audio port.
The rest of the buttons on the camera are as follows…
The battery and SD card slot are found at the bottom, while HDMI and micro-USB ports are on the camera’s right side.
This shooter also has a grip, but unlike higher-end Fujifilm cameras, this is just an attachment you can screw on and off. Having it on does give this thing a better feel, though.
To the delight of photography enthusiasts, there’s also an electronic viewfinder on this.
But the best part is that despite that viewfinder, the screen can do this…
… and even this. Yes, there’s a flippity screen for vlogs and selfies on this and there’s an electronic viewfinder — two things only a few cameras have together.
Of course, the screen has touchscreen capabilities and touch focus is still a thing.
Fujifilm’s signature filters are, of course, here, too. The interface is simple and it looks more like the one found on the X-A line than the prosumer X-T line.
Having spent a little time with this camera, it seems that Fujifilm is attempting to bridge the gap between beginners and more serious shooters. The X-T100 lies in the space found between the X-A5 and the X-T20.
This entry-level camera looks good and feels good, but it’s designed not to be too daunting to those who are starting out in photography or film. It’s looking like it’s aimed for aspiring vloggers and those who want more than just a point-and-shoot camera.
As to how this camera actually performs, we’ll have to wait and see.
The X-T100 retails for US$ 599 in the US and PhP 39,990 in the Philippines.
Sony launches new RX100 VI with 24-200mm zoom
A first for the Cyber-Shot series
If you are looking for a camera that can fit in your pocket and shoot high-resolution photos and videos wherever you go, Sony’s newly launched RX100 VI is definitely something to consider.
The latest addition to Sony’s Cyber-Shot lineup packs a 24-200mm zoom lens with a 20.1-megapixel Exmor RS CMOS sensor for faster processing and better image quality. The zoom lens allows for both wide-angle photos to telephoto thanks to its aperture range of f/2.8-4.5, powered by Sony’s SteadyShot image stabilization technology.
The RX100 VI’s sensor is integrated with an upgraded BIONZ X processor that allows photos to be captured at a much faster rate. The sensor also has 315 phase detection points and Advanced Eye AF for faster image capturing and more accurate motion tracking. Sony believes that the RX100 VI has the fastest AF sensor, clocking in at 0.03 seconds.
The RX100 VI is also the first camera in the Cyber-Shot lineup to gain a touchscreen display for touch focus and shutter. The display can tilt up to 180 degrees upwards and 90 degrees downwards for better flexibility when shooting images and videos. The camera also has Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth functionalities.
For video capabilities, the RX100 VI is capable of capturing 4K HDR thanks to its Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) technology. The technology features S-Gamut and S-Log3, which allows for capturing wider ranges of brightness and color suitable for greater post-production creativity. The camera also captures super slow-motion videos at 250, 500, or 1000fps at 1080p with support from its motion tracking Fast Hybrid AF sensor.
The Sony RX100 VI will ship in July starting in Europe, and is priced at US$ 1,199.
