Apple's iPad Air isn't a radical break from previous iPads, but it doesn't need to be. It's a well-built, slim, and light platform for a terrific range of tablet apps, with an unusually fast processor and a much lighter frame than last year's model, but no loss of battery life. As with previous iPads, it's close to a no-brainer.Sascha Segan
Apple responded to the likes of the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire with its own smaller tablet – and in typical style succeeded in delivering a brilliantly made and highly desirable product that’s arguably handier than its bigger brother. Apple introduced the 7.9-inch iPad Mini as a way to compete in the increasingly popular area of “small” tablets. The screen is actually larger than that of rivals like the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 and very impressive, even if its 1024 x 768 resolution disappoints a little in comparison to the third- and fourth-gen full-size iPad (we’re expecting a Retina display model to appear soon). In true Apple style, the Mini’s build quality and styling is superb, putting it comfortably ahead of its (admittedly cheaper) rivals in the design stakes. It’s a pretty thing with its gently chamfered edges, and weighty enough to feel sturdy – crucially without being too hefty for one-handed use. With swift performance and perfect dimensions for gaming, video watching and ebook reading, the iPad Mini has added yet another valuable member to the iOS family. Price: £269 Apple
Full-frame cameras feature image sensors that match 35mm film in terms of sizethat's roughly twice as big as the sensors in entry-level SLRs. They've long been the tools of pros, but the Canon EOS 6D brings full-frame to the masses at a price point that, while not cheap, is within reach of enthusiastic photographers. The huge image sensor does a great job in low light, and when paired with a wide-aperture lens delivers an impressively shallow depth of field. The 6D can shoot at 4.5fps and adds an integrated GPS and Wi-Fiand its body is impressively compact, not that much bigger than top-end APS-C (Advanced Photo System type-C) SLRs. JF
The Canon PowerSHot Elph 330 HS is the camera to get if you're looking for something compact without breaking the bank. It's the best camera we saw this year for less than $250, thanks to sharp optics, impressive performance in low light, an 8x zoom lens, and built-in Wi-Fi.Jim Fisher
