HTC Zeta image leak, has a 2.5GHz processor and runs ICS

 Possible design and specs of an upcoming handset codenamed HTC 'Zeta' have been leaked courtesy of Engadget. This phone is supposed to have a 2.5GHz quad-core APQ8064 CPU and 1GB of RAM. Other interesting items on the spec sheet are a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 display and Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed along with Sense UI.

The handset supposedly measures 109.8 x 60.9 x 9.8mm and weighs 146g. Inside you'll find 32GB of storage space, 8 megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and 1080p video recording, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio and an 1,830mAh battery.
On the outside the device has an interesting pincushion design that is narrow in the middle and widens towards the top and bottom. We can see the earpiece grille right at the top edge along with the camera sensor. What is curious though is the presence of the keys below the display. Since this phone will come with Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed, ideally it should not have any keys. Unless, HTC has decided to go their own way and stick with the keys for now.
On the back we can see the two plastic portions with a metal band running around the middle. The middle portion is significantly raised and then tapers towards the sides. On the top is the loudspeaker, camera lens and flash and near the bottom is the beats logo and a bump for the headphone jack.
As is usually the case with these things this image could be fake but there are enough details in there to prove otherwise. Note the slight mismatched fitting on the top left side of the metal band on the back of the phone. Also, on the side shot on the right, you can see an L-shaped cut showing where the battery cover comes off. And although we were initially thrown off by the lack of volume control buttons on the left side of the phone, we realized that HTC has moved them on to the right side on their recent phones. So for all we know this could probably even be a photograph of the real thing. We should find out for sure soon enough.

First Review: Canon EF 600 f/4L IS II

By Craig BlairPhoto Credits: Ethan Meleg
I wanted to get a quick article out about the new $12,999 USD Canon EF 600 f/4L IS II super telephoto lens that the world has been waiting years for. When I got the call on June 1, 2012, that mine had arrived at Camera Canada, I was pretty excited. I wanted to make the 3 hour drive to pick it up, but I resisted and waited for it to arrive in the mail the following Monday. For a couple of days, the lens sat in our office and didn’t do much. I just didn’t have the time to get out with it.
EF 300 f/2.8L IS II, EF 400 f/2.8L IS II, EF 600 f/4L IS II, EF 800 f/5.6L IS (500 f/4L IS II still missing) What to do?I decided to give my good friend Ethan Meleg first crack at the lens. His mission, if he chose to accept it, was to take the lens out for one day and try to make some good photographs with it. He was up to the challenge and promised some bird photos worth looking at. I then bid adieu to my recently acquired 600 II.
As with any review here, there’…
