The Canon 600D is the newest entry level DSLR from Canon, engineered for those looking to break into photography on a budget. The camera boasts many excellent features on paper, but we put the camera through its paces to see whether it can deliver on its claims.

The Canon 600D is built from the same high-grade plastic as its predecessor, the 550D. Despite being a plastic construction, the camera feels robust and is light enough to handhold for several hours. This can work in favour for most beginner photographers who would shoot with kit lenses, but we found that with a heavier lens such as the Canon 24-70 f/2.8, it made the setup very unbalanced, with the bulk of the weight being in the front.
The 600D gains an articulated swivel-screen (1040K Dots) that adds a little ..
Videocon is one of the oldest electronics conglomerates in India, and a trusted name when it comes to appliances. The company also now has significant presence in other industries, such as mobile phones, telecommunications, direct-to-home television services and large-format retail. But if there's one thing the company is known for above all else, it is televisions.
Videocon's latest innovation in the field of televisions is a home-grown LED-LCD based television technology that it calls 'Liquid Luminous'. The range is claimed to reproduce 95 percent of the colours that the human eye is capable of perceiving, compared to the 72 percent that most conventional TV panels reproduce.

The competition for virtual reality headsets is heating up, and there are some clear frontrunners emerging – the Oculus Rift, whose Kickstarter project sparked the fresh wave of interest in the category is going to launch next year, while HTC just clarified that the HTC Vive will be available from April. Sony's PlayStation VR will also release next year, and on the mobile front, the Samsung Gear VR is already on sale.
One problem that is shared across all the different gadgets in this space is that they're all going to be pretty expensive – the Gear VR is the cheapest, at $99 (approximately Rs. 6,600), but it only works with certain high end Samsung phones – which, coupled with the limited exposure to VR means that the technology will remain a niche for some time, particularly in countries like India.
However, there are plenty of new headsets under development as well, including the Tesseract by Absentia, which is tentatively going to be priced at Rs. 12,000 for the HD vers..
