Want to turn your iPad Pro into a laptop, but don’t want to spend the $350 Apple wants for the Magic Keyboard? Spend $100 less and get the Combo Touch instead… It’s not as trick looking, but it works better in almost every way.
I got one of these sent to me blindly – no note, no explanation, no request, no nothing… Hell, at first I didn’t know what it was. A hard drive? A stash pod? Eventually, I figured out it was a tiny power bank for your keychain that provides 1400 mAh of power on the go. It’s also built really well… Pretty rad.
God, I hate Leica. No really… I do… The modern version of it anyway. But the thing is, I have a collection of vintage Leica lenses that I really want to shoot digital with. My Sony A7 body is a fantastic video/photo hybrid, but my old lenses just don’t shine through it. And I’ve tried various Digital M-bodies, but the value just isn’t there as I can’t afford both a still and a film setup… especially with the $8k price tag of an M10.
Enter the SL2-S. It’s $5,000. BUT, it’s a fantastic video platform and was literally made to shoot vintage glass.
Man… I hate Leica.
P.S. Just the battery is $300!
I am not an Apple Keyboard guy… Chicklet style keyboards in general hurt my hands during long sessions. However if you don’t mind them, this has been a long time coming – essentially, it’s your standard Apple keyboard with Touch ID built in. Odd that it has taken Apple so long to integrate this.
