COBURNS iPad Stands

COBURNS are a minimal and elegant pair of wooden iPad stands – $25

There are many iPad cases with built-in stands available but most of them add too much bulk and aren’t always that great to use. I prefer to keep my iPad in a slim leather sleeve for protection and then take it out when I want to use it. This works great at most times but a stand can be very useful in certain situations. Enter COBURNS, two wooden legs that grip on to your iPad and lets you position it in an unlimited number of angles in both portrait and landscape orientation.

The two legs snap together using magnets when not in use and they are compact enough to slip into pretty much any pocket. You can choose between light or dark wood and there are versions available for iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini Retina, iPad 3 and iPad 4. COBURNS started as a successful Kickstarter campaign but it is now available to the rest of the world.

Panasonic Lumix GM1

Panasonic Lumix GM1 is a powerful Micro Four Thirds camera in an unbelievably small size – $698

I’ve been using Micro Four Thirds cameras from Panasonic for a few years now and they are the perfect fit for my photography needs. You get powerful features in a small package without losing the ability to switch lenses when needed. The majority of my photos are taken when traveling so the small size of these mirrorless cameras is a big selling point for me. Most Micro Four Thirds cameras are significantly compact compared to normal DSLRs but you really have to see the GM1 with your own eyes to realize just how tiny it is. The picture above shows the camera next to a standard sized match box from swedish brand Solstickan. This camera is not just compact, it’s actually pocketable.

Despite the small camera body Panasonic still managed to include a 16MP sensor, WiFi-support, 1080 HD video recording, a pop-up flash, a 3.0-inch display and a lot of other goodies. It comes with a 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 zoom lens that was designed specifically for the GM1. The body weighs in at 204 grams and with the standard zoom lens attached the total weight is 361 grams.
