Still think you need a camera ?
04/25/2018

With all the cutting edge equipment designed to fit in our pockets and available out there, is a camera relevant anymore? This has been the question on everyone’s mind for quite some time. Even the техно team will admit that we more spontaneously reach for our phone these days than for our camera. And this is coming from a team of guys with a passion for gear and some of the best cameras on the market…

Why I changed my e-reader tablet
04/20/2018

It's no secret that there's a pretty big consensus out there when it comes to e-readers. Just sit in the subway and you'll get a quick overview of the leading brands on the market, at a glance. At техно, we are no strangers to trends, regardless of how much new stuff we now receive on a weekly basis.

04/20/2018

Don't worry, no lenses were hurt in the process! However, you know us, when we receive new gear, we like to put it to the test and we do not take it lightly.
