He&rsquo;s been lugging an iPad around for about 3 years now, and I was curious to see how he would react to a new device.</p> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">First thing he said was, &ldquo;Wow! It&rsquo;s beautiful!&rdquo; and I couldn&rsquo;t agree more. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 has a very elegant and sturdy built, using both polycarbonate and aluminum. It&rsquo;s very slim at 213 x 144 x (3.0-7.3)mm and weighs a mere 401g, it&rsquo;s just the perfect size even for little hands to carry.</p> <p dir="ltr">Unlike most tablets, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet does not have a flat back. It has a cylindrical bottom which houses its kickass battery (2 Cell 6000mAH Li-Polymer, if you prefer the fancier term) with an 18-hour lifespan and also serves as a handle for better grip.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="PROMOTED: Singapore Cover Girl Mara&#039;s son loves the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8" alt="PROMOTED: Singapore Cover Girl Mara&#039;s son loves the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lenovo%20Yoga%20Tablet%208%2002_0.png?1401269522" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">But what I think is truly unique is the kickstand at the back of the device which allows for multiple Yogi positions: Hold, Tilt, and Stand. Hold mode, for comfortable browsing and gaming. Tilt mode is great for typing as you would on a keyboard. Change to Stand mode, for the perfect viewing angle for watching videos and movies, and Skype chat. I think Lenovo had the user&rsquo;s comfort primarily in mind with this one.</p> <p dir="ltr">This tablet has a 5MP rear and 1.6MP front camera. Not DSLR quality, but then a tablet wasn&rsquo;t made to replace cameras anyway. It does let you enjoy clear video chats.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="PROMOTED: Singapore Cover Girl Mara&#039;s son loves the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8" alt="PROMOTED: Singapore Cover Girl Mara&#039;s son loves the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lenovo%20Yoga%20Tablet%208%20030.png?1401269522" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">As the name implies, this Yoga Tablet has an 8in screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels (the Yoga Tablet 10 is recommended for those who prefer a bigger 10in screen).&nbsp;But my son doesn&rsquo;t seem to mind, and it&rsquo;s certainly ample enough for browsing, watching videos, and gaming. He went crazy downloading all the free racing games available, so the expandable 64GB microSD card storage is definitely a welcome feature.</p> <p>This little man is pretty happy with this tablet and brings it with him practically all the time in his Vespa bag. It&rsquo;ll be tough to pry it out of his hands when I have to return it.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="847" height="589" title="PROMOTED: Singapore Cover Girl Mara&#039;s son loves the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8" alt="PROMOTED: Singapore Cover Girl Mara&#039;s son loves the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Lenovo%20Yoga%20Tablet%208%2006.png?1401269522" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> VOTE NOW TO ENTER THE LUCKY DRAW! </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/covergirlsearch/#" target="_blank">VOTE HERE</a>&nbsp;to enter the S$5,000 tech bundle lucky draw.</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Stuff Singapore Cover Girl Search is powered by&nbsp;<a href="http://www.nokia.com/sg-en/" target="_blank">Nokia</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.canon.com.sg/home" target="_blank">Canon</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.funan.com.sg/malls/website/index.aspx" target="_blank">Funan DigitaLife Mall</a>, and sponsored by&nbsp;<a href="http://www.pioneer.com.sg/storefront4/general/homepage.asp" target="_blank">Pioneer</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.lenovo.com/sg/en/" target="_blank">Lenovo</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.clarkequay.com.sg/malls/website/index.aspx" target="_blank">Clarke Quay</a>.

The picture quality is great with zero noise. With no macro lens on hand, I initially ran into trouble with autofocus for close ups. But after some trial-and-error, my photos came out sharper and more beautiful. I was definitely starting to fall in love.</p> <p>Colour-wise, what you see with your naked eye is what you get with the 5D Mark III &ndash; just the way I like it. This allows for more exploration on the creative side during post-processing.&nbsp;And like every EOS series, Mark III also comes with Canon&#39;s Imaging Processing Software: EOS Utility bundled with Digital Photo Professional (DPP). </p> <p>Canon&#39;s DPP is already a powerful editing tool by itself. It comes with several editing features to manipulate the photo environment such as White Balance or Picture Style adjustment, Noise Reduction and Auto Lighting Optimiser. If you&#39;re not doing detailed editing on beauty shots, DPP is more than sufficient for your editing needs. It&rsquo;s a great tool for transforming RAW photos and compliments Photoshop&rsquo;s more detailed editing tools. You can easily enhance a photo with a few slides and clicks, so no manual is needed here, even for first-timers like me.

But at S$4,699, it&rsquo;s unlikely that Mark (who originally comes with a 24-105 lens) and I will meet again anytime soon. </p> <p>This said, I&#39;d highly recommend investing in this beauty if you&rsquo;re planning to take photography seriously - rather than having to upgrade from an entry-level DSLR later.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ces-2014/hands-video-preview-dji-s1000-octocopter-will-give-your-canon-5d-wings/video" target="_blank">READ MORE: Hands-on video preview: Give your Canon 5D wings..</a>.</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="640" height="888" title="The Stuff Singapore Cover Girl Search is powered by Nokia, Canon and Funan DigitaLife Mall, and sponsored by Pioneer, Lenovo a" alt="The Stuff Singapore Cover Girl Search is powered by Nokia, Canon and Funan Digit" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Final-after-Photoshop-%281%29_0.png?1401243314" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="640" height="888" title="The Stuff Singapore Cover Girl Search is powered by Nokia, Canon and Funan DigitaLife Mall, and sponsored by Pioneer, Lenovo a" alt="The Stuff Singapore Cover Girl Search is powered by Nokia, Canon and Funan Digit" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/myphoto.png?1401243314" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> LET&#039;S TALK ABOUT SPECS </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The<a href="http://http://www.canon.com.sg/personal/products/interchangeable-lens-camera/dslr-eos/eos-5d-mark-iii?languageCode=EN" target="_blank"> EOS 5D Mark III</a> has a 22.3 Megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, a high ISO range of 100&ndash;25600, and a shooting performance up to 6.0 fps, which makes it the picture-perfect gear for weddings, portraits, landscapes and lowlight photography.</p> <p>Mark&#39;s body weighs 860g with the battery and the Canon EF 50mm lens weighs 280g, so at 1.14kg is not the lightest camera to bring around when wearing heels. But weight-lifting my 16KG son has given me more than enough muscle for that!</p> <p>On a totally Mark III unrelated note, I wish DSLRs came in a more sleeker-sexier package to cater to the function and fashion-conscious clientele. Perhaps Canon could design a flagship to mark the Lamborghini of cameras.
