Canon PowerShot ZOOM adds a monocular telephoto camera to the portfolio

It might not be an opportune time to be out and about but Canon thinks people will, at one point in time, want to escape the monotony of the new normal and go outdoors.

Those are pretty much the situations where Canon’s newest PowerShot ZOOM camera might be of use, helping people get close to the action even while staying far, far away.

Canon’s PowerShot line is designed for ease of use and you probably can’t get any simpler than this. Coming in a form reminiscent of camcorders, the PowerShot ZOOM is a compact monocular camera that does just one thing and that is to take you closer to your subject matter as quickly and as easily as possible.

To that end, the PowerShot ZOOM offers three telephoto lengths of 100mm, 400mm, and 800mm,

3 Cheap Tech Stocks to Buy Now for Your Portfolio of the Future

September has been a wild month for the market. It began with the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq hitting new records, as Apple AAPL and other big-names continued to climb higher. The market then experienced an ultra fast selloff, with the tech-heavy index falling into correction territory in just several sessions.

Stocks have chopped around since then, and technical traders point to the 50 and 200-day moving averages for levels of resistance and support.

4 Tech Stocks to Pick While Tailoring Your Retirement Portfolio

Retirement brings in a number of challenges, including the replacement of income that seniors earn during their service life. And it is difficult to cover expenses from the traditional approaches to retirement planning, which include investment in fixed-income assets.

Therefore, we believe equity investments are a brilliant way to create solid income streams for the long run. Though these are riskier, equities are the only asset class that can beat inflation and simultaneously offer capital appreciation over a longer period.

Tech Stocks are the Best Picks

Tech stocks could be an intriguing choice for a retirement portfolio, considering the sector’s resiliency amid the coronavirus-induced panic sell-off in March. The coronavirus outbreak has, surprisingly, opened up newer avenues of growth for tech companies.
