Whether you have your TV in a bright room and just can’t get over the glare, or maybe you just want to see the full spectrum of color, or perhaps you just want the best quality out there, the Vizio P-Series Quantum is the TV for you. They use what they’re calling “UltraBright 2000” technology, which just means that the TV can achieve 2,000 nits of brightness. For those of you who don’t know what a nit is, it measures brightness and 2,000 is really bright. The display also has excellent fidelity of contrast, so the bright parts of whatever you’re watching get really bright, and the dark parts stay super dark. With all the other perks of a new smart TV, this 4K display might just be the perfect TV for anyone looking to blow their friends away with an ultra bright display, or anyone fighting the living room glare.

SD to Lightning Adapter
One of the best pieces of travel gear for any photographer out there is a device which lets you import photos and videos from any SD card directly onto your phone. Although the concept is simple, many don’t think about how convenient it is to own. While some cameras these days do have the ability to wirelessly import photos to your mobile devices, most don’t, and even when they do the process can be a little counterintuitive, and doesn’t compare to the peace of mind and quality of image that comes with importing the file directly to your phone. The plug and play nature of the process is straightforward and easy. Simply plug in the adapter to your iPhone and an import screen will automatically pop up. It’s that easy. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to have the highest quality images of a DSLR combined with the shareability of a mobile device, and it’s great for travel when you might not have a full computer with you to import the files. Although even for everyday use sometimes it’s just better to cut out the middle man. You can get it directly from Apple for around $30, but we recommend getting a third party adapter. They’re the same hardware, but for sometimes only a third of the price, like the one from Walmart available now for just under $10.
Varjo Mixed Reality Headset
While VR may not have lived up to the hype that the early 2000s gave it, that doesn't stop companies like Varjo from trying to push the envelope. The Mixed Reality Headset aims to mimic the the human eye and provides a set of 0.7-inch, Full HD Sony-sourced MicroOLED displays, both of which can offer 3,000 pixel-per-inch density and are magnified to fill up roughly a 20-degree field of view. It features eye tracking and a set of mirrors that move the projected images in front of whereever your eyes are looking. Kits are expected to ship out in early 2019. We'll follow to see if this one lives up to the hype.
