nikon-d5100

The D5100 is Nikon’s newest DSLR camera. It’s black; it’s got interchangeable lenses and it costs close to a grand. Honestly, if you’re spending more than a monthly Porsche payment on a camera, what you really care about are the specs, so feel free to geek out. The D5100 is packing: 3″ super sharp, 921,000-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, an effects mode (selective color, nightvision, high key, low key, color sketch and miniature options), full HD 1080p (with full-time autofocus), HDR, 16.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor (size 23.6 x 15.6mm), EXPEED 2 processing engine, and an 11 point AF system with 3D-tracking. It works with NIKKOR lenses, SD cards, and external flashes and mics. It’s photography geekdom – along with a number of cool Photoshop effects (so you don’t have to add them later) – all rolled into one camera. In the DSLR world this isn’t a bargain – it’s a steal.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
