Lego Nintendo Entertainment System Building Kit

LEGO SET

For those who grew up playing the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game console, which was released in 1983, the Lego NES Building Kit will be a fantastic trip down memory lane.

Canon EOS R5

MIRRORLESS CAMERA

$6,199 (body only), available on Thursday

If you want to take high-resolution photos but need a compact camera body, consider the Canon EOS R5 (available on Lazada and Shopee).

Its 45-megapixel full-frame image sensor approaches the medium-format resolution, so you can produce large prints. Powered by Canon’s new Digic X image processor, it can shoot at up to 20 frames per second in full resolution. Its ISO setting goes up to ISO 102,400, while the number of autofocusing (AF) points have increased sevenfold from the original EOS R to 1,053 AF points.

Garmin Instinct Solar

SMARTWATCH

From $629

Garmin’s Instinct smartwatch (available on Amazon, Lazada and Shopee) now has a solar panel, which allows it to last up to 24 days in smartwatch mode when used indoors and more than 50 days with sufficient exposure to sunlight. If you switch to the Expedition mode, you can get more than two months of battery life with sufficient solar exposure.

Apart from outdoor activity and health tracking functions, it has Pulse Ox, a feature that measures how well your body is absorbing oxygen.

Razer Huntsman Mini

MECHANICAL GAMING KEYBOARD

$189.90 (Clicky switches), $209.99 (Linear switches)

Razer’s Huntsman Mini (available on Lazada and Shopee) is the gaming company’s smallest and first 60-per-cent keyboard, meaning that it has 60 per cent the number of keys on a full-sized keyboard.

Despite its size, the Huntsmen Mini has all the essential keys for gaming. Functions normally assigned to dedicated keys on a full-sized keyboard are present as secondary functions. More functions or macros can be assigned to any key using the Razer Synapse 3 software. The keyboard is available in two optical mechanical switches: Clicky and Linear.

With the Samsung 870 QVO (available on Lazada and Shopee) solid-state drive (SSD), you no longer have to choose between performance and storage capacity, as it comes with capacities of up to 8TB.

In addition, it offers best-in-class sequential read and write speeds of up to 560MB per second and 530MB per second respectively. It also delivers a 13 per cent improvement in random read speed over its predecessor, the 860 QVO.

Looking for a wire-free, battery-operated security camera? Check out the Ezviz C3A (available on Lazada), which uses a 5,500mAh rechargeable lithium battery that provides months of usage without recharging.
