Camera

Ricoh has announced the release of the CX6, a new digital camera featuring a high magnification 10.7x (28-300 mm) optical wide-angle zoom lens that achieves even shorter autofocus (AF) times through the introduction of a new AF system.

With the adoption of a new system enhancing both the hardware and software of the hybrid AF system introduced on the CX5, the new CX6 achieves AF focusing times as fast as 0.1 seconds. You will be sure to capture that fleeting shutter chance.

The high-brightness LCD monitor is approximately 1.7 times brighter than the previous model for better visibility outdoors. The CX6 also adds a function for automatic adjustment of brightness based on the level of brightness of the subject, and this make it possible to minimize the loss of visibility that can occur due to changes in the shooting environment. In addition, for telephoto shooting, the new zoom assist monitor function displays a small image on the LCD monitor so that you can always check the framing of the shot.

£259.99 Available in three colours: Black, Silver, and Pink.

Mixing it

Martin Miller’s gin is distilled using pure Icelandic spring water for the freshest, cleanest taste possible. The water is infused with a range of 10 hand-picked botanicals and essential oils in a secret recipe, to create a unique creamy soft palate, unlike any other gin.

The drink was created by entrepreneur Martin Miller, who along with two friends David Bromige and Andreas Versteegh , was dissatisfied with the gin products on the market in 1998. Their aim was to create a truly premium gin that would taste fantastic neat as well as when mixed with other drinks – and remind consumers what a wonderful drink gin could be.

£22 for a 70cl bottle
