Samsung launches NFC-enabled printer range within small and mid-sized market

Samsung has announced the launch of NFC-enabled printers this week at the Samsung European Forum, including the monochrome laser Xpress M2880 Series and color laser Xpress C1860 Series. Both printers offer fast printing, at 28 pages and 18 pages per minute respectively. Featuring NFC and Wi-Fi Direct, users can print wirelessly by way of tapping their smartphone on the printer for sending files to be printed, or execute printing from a Samsung Galaxy device with its default print button, via a Wi-Fi connection.



Wi-Fi printing can be facilitated through other devices by downloading Samsung's mobile printing app, available in the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store. Google Cloud Print is also supported by the Xpress series.

Miggo Camera Strap Kickstarter funded, carries and protects gear

The Miggo strap, founded by Israel-based designer Ohad Cohen, has achieved its $20,000 Kickstarter goal with 27 days still remaining in its campaign. Aiming to reduce the amount of clutter associated with carrying photography gear, the Miggo combines a sling strap, to secure a camera while wearing it, with a wrap, that protects it when not in use.
Available in two versions, the other type features a grip for tying a camera to the user's wrist to prevent dropping. Both versions tie around the camera lens and body to provide a secure layer of protection, suitable for storage in a bag or backpack.



The Miggo has a tripod mount adapter built in, eliminating the need for the protective sling strap to be removed before attaching. Made of Neoprene and Lycra, the Miggo comes in seven different colors and patterns, and possesses a flexible outer pocket for lens cap storage. It is compatible with most mirrorless cameras currently available, and a wide range of lenses. Available 'pre-order' pledges currently begin at $35, with estimated delivery beginning June 2014.
