Deal Alert: 24 January 2020

Deal Alert: 24 January 2020

Happy Lunar New Year!

Enjoy these great deals as you welcome the Year of the Rat.


Apple AirPods Pro promotion


Celebrate this Chinese New Year and save by paying only S$329 for a pair of Apple Airpod Pros down from the usual price of S$399.

Enjoy features like active noise-cancelling that can be found on other headphones.

Microphones listen out for unwanted noise and tell the headphones to generate a waveform that is the exact negative so that the two cancel each other out. In the case of the AirPods Pro, there are two microphones. One external one that listens for outside noise, and an internal one that listens for any remaining noise within your ears. Apple boasts that the AirPods Pro continuously listens and adjusts the noise-cancellation at 200 times per second.                                                               

For those who are interested, visit Qoo10’s website at and act fast to grab one of the 30 sets on offer!

Canon EOS 5DS 


Lazada has the 50.6-megapixel EOS 5DS for sale at just S$1,806, some 40% off the list price of S$2, 959. That’s a pretty good price for this highly capable prosumer camera. It also has a magnesium alloy body, an optical viewfinder with 100% coverage, and a 3.2-inch, 1.04M-pixel LCD screen.

There is also a 61-point AF system, of which 41 are cross-type and 5 are double-cross AF points. The EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition (iTR) AF tech we saw on the 7D Mark II is present too for tracking both faces and colour, as well an advanced mirror vibration control system that reduces image blur due to vibrations from mirror movements, and a 150,000-pixel RGB + IR metering sensor with flicker detection.

Find out how we felt after using the camera for a day.
