Casio Exilim S500 Review

Casio Exilim series of cameras have been renounce for it's battery life as well as small footprint. The latest Exilim S500 is no exception.

It is the smallest and tiniest 5 megapix camera in the world at the moment. The attraction to this camera lies not only in the size and the built quality but also the image stabilizer. I have been playing with it for the past few weeks and had a fair share of my personal opinions.

The picture quality of this camera is below par or slightly average. Grains can be seem in pictures taken. The flash seems to be too powerful that close shot of human flesh tones turn white. The digital image stabilizer works only in slightly low light condition and it does not seems to hold its foot well when in very low light condition. You have only 2 options with the image stabilizer - Auto or Disabled. When you set that to Auto, you will not known when is it employ... Panasonic FX series OIS is a better stabilizer as it employs a optical stablizer rather than the digital and the result is more obvious. Also, the Panasonic FX camera has a brighter lens and the image is brilliant amid abit bluish tone.

One of the useful feature of the camera is the many built-in scenaries. You can pick anyone of them that suits your subject and press to shoot. That is so easy.

The S500 uses a lower capacity battery as compared to the "standard" Exilim due to the size. It is only good for about 150 shots on normal usage.

Not recommended if you want brilliant and excellent picture quality, But if you are into the size and beauty, then this would goes well with you...

Getting Watch Maker and third party watch faces to work on an iOS connected Android Wear

Many people loves their Apple Watch, so do I. As Android Wear improves over the past year,  we started to take it seriously. I have got an Huawei Watch with cool round 400x400 pixel AMOLED display. It looks like a traditional watch with a glance at it. The cool thing about having an Android Wear is that you have access to tons of cool watch faces. Apple Watch is limited by the fact that it has limited selection build by Apple, no developer has been given access to build any watch face for it.

You must be wondering how do you connect your Android Wear to iPhone and get access to third party watch faces. The Android Wear iOS app provided by Google provides access to some limited selection of watch faces, you can't use any of those that are out there on the internet developed for Watch Maker or Facer.

Thanks to Kevin from XDA Forum, you are in luck now. 

You can now install third party watch faces on your Android Wear and get connected to iPhone for notifications and Google Now. It may …

Why iPad

A lot have been said about the iPad, you would have already know what it have or have not. Just to re-cap, the iPad does not have USB port and webcam, it does not support java and flash. So why iPad when all these supposedly standards are not included?

First of all, iPad is not a computer. It's not intended to replace your PC or laptop. It serves as a in-between for your phone and PC. It's give you the convenience of instant start to your surfing habit, reading emails, ebooks, watching movies etc on your bedside, by the pool or on the plane, anywhere you can think of including your bathroom.
