expiredCharge a MacBook with G-Tech’s 4TB USB-C External HDD: $150 (All-time low)

Amazon is offering the G-Technology 4TB USB-C External HDD for $149.95 shipped. Note: shipping is slightly delayed. Also available at B&H. That’s $50 off the going rate found at retailers like Best Buy and is the first price drop we’ve tracked. Out of all its features, the ability to passthrough charge a MacBook over USB-C has got to be the most interesting. Simply plug this drive into the wall and once you connect via USB-C, your MacBook or other modern device will charge at 45W speeds. It’s Time Machine-ready, making it an excellent Mac companion that also happens to work well with Windows. An all-aluminum enclosure gives it a high-end look and feel that will pair nicely with Apple gear. Rated 4.2/5 stars.

As smartphones become more and more like full-fledged cameras, it only makes sense for cameras to become more like smartphones. We see bits of this when newer cameras offer better software experiences, but so far the mass market has deemed smartphones good enough that it is not worth the headache of carrying dedicated cameras.

Samsung’s Galaxy Camera gave us a glimpse of how user-friendly cameras can be when putting full-blown Android on them, but it still fell short in many areas. Chinese company Yongnuo has announced that it is making its own Android-powered camera, and unlike the Galaxy Camera, this one will support interchangeable lenses.

Leica has released its latest camera today, the M10-D. Following in the footsteps of its recently-released M10-P, the M10-D shares a very similar appearance aside from the immediately obvious omission of a screen. A deliberate move by Leica to help photographers focus on the moment happening in front of them instead of viewing it on a display. Even though Leica’s latest camera ditches some digital features for a nostalgic and analog feel, the company attempts to make up for this by shipping a new companion smartphone app for interacting with it. expand full story

Zeiss, the legendary lens manufacturer, has flipped the switch on its first full-frame digital camera. Packing a 37.4-megapixel sensor, it arrives on the scene with a unique design and plenty of tech. A triangular grip and bright yellow colors highlight the outer casing. But it’s a partnership with Adobe that makes this Zeiss hardware all the more intriguing. It has a slimmed down version of Lightroom CC built-in directly to the camera. How easy it is to edit on-the-go is yet to be seen. But it’s pretty interesting.

Head below for more details.
