Detective Pikachu Movie Review

Is Detective Pikachu the very best, like no film ever was? We review the first ever live action Pokémon movie
Should I Buy the Detective Pikachu?
Detective Pikachu could have been a disaster, but instead it's really a bit of a delight. A game cast, robust world-building, and a sharp script combine to produce a film that should appeal equally to new fans and nostalgia-driven millennials.
It's a low bar to clear, but this is the best videogame movie yet - by some way.

Leica Sofort Review

Leica Sofort Review
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $299
German camera company Leica is rightly legendary for its lenses, so it was a surprise to some when it ventured into instant cameras - not best known for pristine image quality. Though going by the Sofort, we’re glad they did.


Based on Fujifilm’s Instax Mini 90, the Sofort doesn’t offer any revolutionary new features, but is instead a refinement, pairing Fujifilm’s tech with Leica’s own lens.

One of those immediate refinements is in the camera’s physical design. The Mini 90 was already Instax’s most attractive camera, but the Sofort is another step up, with a straight-edged design that delicately toes the line between modern and retro. Available in white, mint, or orange, it’s colourful, sleek, and minimalist - it’s hard not to fall a little bit in love at first sight.

The 60mm f/12.7 lens accommodates two different focal distances, and there are preset modes for macro, people, parties, and sports/action shots. If you want to get fiddlier, you can adjust brightness, flash, and a timer, along with bulb and double exposure modes for more challenging shots. Oh, and there’s a small selfie mirror on the front to help you nail your self-portraits too.
The Sofort takes standard Instax Mini film, but Leica also sells its own prints. Unsurprisingly they cost a bit more, but there’s no appreciable difference in quality - we can’t tell apart similar photos taken across the two film types, so feel free to stick to Instax.

As for the photos themselves, they come out fantastic - the best we’ve seen across the instant cameras we’ve tested so far, especially at shorter distances. The macro mode turns out great close-ups, while even standard settings produce strong portraits. Skin tones can be slightly washed out, and there’s a bit of detail lost in long distance shots, but colours are bright, vibrant, and have the warmth of the best of film photography.

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?

But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
