Reolink Argus 4 Pro Security Camera: Full-Color 4K Night Vision & More
Something dancing in the dark in your yard? The Reolink Argus 4 Pro security cam can see it in full color without extra lighting. The indoor/outdoor unit has two F1.0 4mm lenses which capture both visible and infrared light to produce clear, bright 4K color daytime and night-vision videos. The video feeds are combined into a seamless video that covers a wide, 180-degree viewing angle. A $220 package includes a solar panel, but the battery-powered unit can also be charged with a USB-C phone charger.

an old computer with the words microsoft on it and other tweets surrounding it
Microsoft asks a simple question. My reply gets lots of Twitter buzz. Thanks!
Recently @microsoft asked a simple question on Twitter: "Age yourself by telling us the first Microsoft product you ever used." My reply: "Microsoft OS in my @radioshack TRS-80 Model 100 laptop purchased around 1985." Microsoft's reply: "Amazed. 😮" The result? Well, take a look. I'm surprised myself at the number of impressions and likes. You can follow me on Twitter at the same handle as I have here on Pinterest: @newyorkbob CLICK THE LINK to see the tweet.

CES 2023 Revs Up to Full Speed, But...
For two years CES, formerly called the Consumer Electronics Show, limped along in watered-down forms, but for #CES 2023 the hugs and handshakes—or at least fist bumps and waves—are back. But #CES2023 will be different than the last full in-person show in 2020 and it remains to be seen if that will be a good or bad thing. With possibly 100,000 attendees and 3,000 exhibitors, it will still be a gigantic show. CLICK THE PIC to read my take at The Paper PC. And subscribe if you like.

three different types of cameras are shown in this image, one is black and the other has
Canon EOS R7 & EOS R10: Top-Level Camera Features, Lower Price
The Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10 mirrorless digital cameras are good news for photogs seeking the features of the popular EOS-R series at a lower price. Instead of full-frame sensors, the EOS R7 (32MP) and EOS R10 (24MP) have smaller APS-C sensors, which cuts costs and allows them to use smaller, lighter lenses. The RF-S18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM are the first of @CanonUSA's RF-S lenses for APS-C sensors. CLICK THE PIC for more info in my Tech Tip in Sree’s Sunday Note.
