Design that defies convention

VivoBook S15 have a metal chassis finished in Moss Green, Punk Pink, Cobalt Blue, Transparent Silver or Gun Metal and VivoBook S14 only have Gun Metal and Transparent Silver, with each color featuring complementing accents to give the laptops color blocking designs that really pop.

The nature inspired Moss Green is paired with Energetic Orange accents to showcase the spirit of exploring the great outdoors, while the street styled Punk Pink with Moss Green trim represents the rebellious streak of a younger generation that’s not afraid to stand up for their beliefs. To appeal to a younger market, these are the first in the VivoBook range to feature the VivoBook logo on the lid, and the lid also features a tactile textured finish to further highlight the series’ different approach to computing. There are also intricate design touches like twill inspired vents and speakers on the underside of the chassis.
The NanoEdge display design provides VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15 with a more compact chassis footprint. Weighing just 1.4 kg and 1.8 kg respectively, they easily slip into a messenger bag or backpack, making them perfect for users who are constantly on the go.

User friendly features

The frameless four sided NanoEdge displays provide VivoBook S14 and VivoBook S15 with up to 5.2mm thin bezels and 88% screen to body ratios, giving more immersive visuals for work or play. The ErgoLift hinge tilts the keyboard by 3.5° to provide users with a more comfortable typing experience; its one piece construction also results in a much more durable hinge.

Intel-powered Wi¬ Fi 6 (802.11ax) delivers superfast networking speeds that are up to 3X faster than Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), with 4X the network capacity and 75%-lower latency to reduce large 4K video transfer times by up to 70%. The built in IR camera offers hands-free face login: advanced biometrics work seamlessly with Windows Hello, allowing users to wake their laptops and log in with a simple look. In addition, Harman Kardon certified audio provides high quality detailed sound that’s second to none.

CANON Introduces PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 Mark III

Canon’s flagship compact models continue with the series’ heritage, featuring a stellar combination of DSLR speed, quality and lightweight handling.

Photo 1

The PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III boast:

  • a 20.1MP, 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor
  • a wide aperture of f/1.8- f/2.8 with a good optical zoom of 5X (PowerShot G5 X Mark II) and 4.2x (PowerShot G7 X Mark III)
  • Canon’s pioneering DIGIC 8 processor in their compact bodies to offer DSLR-like creative expression in both stills and uncropped 4K videos

01_EC808_BK_TheFront

“Canon’s latest PowerShot G series offers upgraded features that improve cameras’ performance, to deliver on all levels so that users have the freedom to express themselves in any scenario.” said Albert Mah, Head of Imaging Communication Products Division, Canon Marketing Malaysia.

PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III

  • Superb Image Quality in Any Situation

Powered by Canon’s DIGIC 8 Processor, the key highlight of the two cameras is its 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor, which is larger than sensors typically found in compact cameras. This enhances the cameras’ performance with faster autofocus to produce crisp, clear shots in almost any light.

With a newly designed f/1.8- 2.8 lens with 24-120mm focal range which provides a 5x zoom (the PowerShot G7 X Mark III has 24-100mm focal range, giving 4.2x zoom), the PowerShot G5 X Mark II is poised to handle anything from shooting portraits to macro close-ups of 0.47x magnification and is excellent for creating shallow depth of field effects.

  • Fast, Confident Shooting

One major challenge of shooting fast-moving subjects is capturing that one perfect frame when the subject is in focus and in the desired position. Now, you can shoot boldly with the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III. Its pre-shoot setting will start shooting at 0.5 seconds before you even press the shutter release button. Hence, the moment will still be captured even if you press the shutter button a split second later. Photographs can be taken at a high speed of 30 shots per second in RAW burst mode (and 20fps in jpeg), making sure you miss nothing, especially if you are capturing jump shots or your child blowing out candles on a birthday cake.

Both cameras include a panoramic mode, activated by a simple push of a button. With horizontal or vertical panning, you can easily capture panoramic shots with amazing details in high quality.

  • Create Movies in Stunning Definition

Both PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III lets users capture 4K movies without crop, allowing you to take full advantage of your lenses to shoot landscape videos.

With 4K movies recorded in motion JPEG, frame grabs are possible, allowing users to review footage and at any given point, extract a moment from the video and save it as a high-quality 8MP JPEG on the camera.

With a tilting LCD on both cameras, you can shoot from different angles, from the ground up, or from high angles to create videos with a unique point of view.

  • Intuitive Features and Ergonomic Handling

With their highly pocket-friendly dimensions and ergonomic design, both the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III can easily fit into a slip-pocket in your bag, which makes them ideal choice for lifestyle users looking for an all-in-one camera for everyday use.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III comes in two colours- black and silver. Users familiar with Canon’s EOS cameras would appreciate both cameras’ operation and intuitive control features, which has been upgraded from the existing compact digital camera’s user interface.

  • Versatile Charging and Advanced Connectivity

Both the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III are capable of USB charging which makes it more convenient for users on the go.

The PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III are packed with connectivity features, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), to effortlessly connect with compatible smart devices with one single tap and switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi and BLE. Users can use the Canon Camera Connect app to perform network-related features.

Availability

  • The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is available in black colour and retailed at RM3,599
  • Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is available in both black and silver colours and retailed at RM2,999

Both models are available at all Canon authorized dealers nationwide.

SONY WF-1000XM3: Noise Free, Wire Free and Worry Free

The new addition of new generation truly wireless headphones – the WF-1000XM3,  Sony’s Industry-leading Noise Cancellation is improved further with the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e chip and Dual Noise Sensor Technology which delivers exceptional Noise Cancelling performance, enabling you to hear the music and nothing else.

Group Photo_ WH_WF

The next level of silence

WF-1000XM3_S_MagnetHoldingChargingCase-Mid (1)

The WF-1000XM3 headphones feature Dual Noise Sensor technology that works with the new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e to catch and cancel noise respectively, so that all attention is on your music. Thanks to Dual Noise Sensor Technology, one feed-forward microphone and one feed-back microphone on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sound around you.

Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e gets to work. The processor cleverly creates an inverted sound wave to offset bothersome background noise. It not only cancels more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power. Anything ranging from annoying aircraft cabin noise, to hustle and bustle on the city streets, is dramatically cancelled by the buds – so it’s all about the music.

Exceptional sound quality

Characteristic of the 1000X family, you can enjoy premium, high quality sound on the WF-1000XM3 buds and listen to your music the way that the artist intended. The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e also accomplishes stunning sound thanks to 24-bit audio signal processing and DAC with amplifier. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files including MP3 formats, to bring you closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. Fully immerse yourself in high quality sound, whether you’re listening to music or enjoying the latest movies on the go and thereby transform the dreaded commute into a fun and relaxing escape from the commotion around you.

True wireless, true freedom

The truly wireless design of the WF-1000XM3 buds allows you to move freely without the nuisance of getting tangled in wires. The WF-1000XM3 buds are small and light but manage to pack in a newly developed BLUETOOTH® chip. This allows for L/R simultaneous BLUETOOTH® transmission which means that both left and right earbuds receive audio content at the same time, rather than the conventional left-to-right relay BLUETOOTH® transmission. Teamed with the new optimised antenna structure, this results in a highly stable wireless connection, so nothing gets in between you and your music. Also, low latency syncs what you see on screen precisely with what you hear on your headphones for enjoyable TV shows, videos and more.

The WF-1000XM3 buds are specifically designed for improved comfort and stability in the ear. The ‘ergonomic tri-hold’ structure holds the earbuds firmly in place, with three supporting points for the ear. A high-friction rubber surface has also been included to ensure a stable fitting. With four sizes of hybrid earbuds and three sizes of triple comfort earbuds, you can find your perfect fit.

Clever convenience

The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e has low power consumption, boosting the battery life and your listening time considerably. You can listen for up to 24 hours with Noise Cancelling on, thanks to WF-1000XM3 earbuds’ sleek case that doubles up as a charger, perfect for a battery boost on the go. The buds even have a quick charge function – just 10 minutes of charging gives you up to 90 minutes of battery life.

For ease, you can use Quick Attention mode to communicate without removing your earbuds. Simply place your finger over the touch panel of the left earbud to quickly lower the music volume and let the ambient sound in, so you can hear announcements or order a drink. Plus, with the fully customisable touch sensors on the earbuds , you can easily play, pause, skip songs or activate your voice assistant with simple taps. Additionally, the new Wearing Detection feature automatically pauses your music when you remove one of the earbuds from your ear and resumes playing when you put the earbud back in your ear, so you never miss a beat.

Optimised for the Google Assistant , you can control your headphones by voice, making the WF-1000XM3 the perfect commuter companion. The headphones are also compatible with the Sony | Headphones Connect app, where you’ll find customisation features for sound, noise cancellation, touch controls and more.

Pricing and Availability

The WF-1000XM3 is available in Sony Stores KLCC and Curve, Sony Store online and all authorised dealers in Malaysia at RM949.
