Week in Tech
A cavalcade of cameras, a huge cameraphone, Windows and a wristband

It's been a brilliant week for photography fans: not only do we have a whole bunch of handy hints for smartphone snappers, but for serious shooters there's a cornucopia of new cameras. Sony’s RX10 is a premium camera with the RX100 II one-inch sensor and a constant f/2.8 aperture lens. Sony also showed off the A7 and A7R, both with full-frame sensors. The A7 "is ahead of the curve" and the A7R is better still, explains Amy Davies. "Traditional DSLR manufacturers may be starting to get worried."

If Nikon's bricking it, it isn't showing: the venerable camera firm has yet another new SLR in the shape of the Nikon D5300. And not to be outdone, Fuji busted out a couple of cameras to round the week off. High-end cameras tend to be fairly hefty beasts, but that's not the case with the Panasonic Lumix GM1: it's a tiny Micro Four Thirds that packs a 16 million pixel Live MOS Four Thirds sensor.

While Panasonic goes small, HTC has gone big: the latest entrant to the increasingly crowded "stupidly large handset" market is the HTC One Max, which comes with a whopping 5.9-inch screen. But biggest isn’t best: Phone and Tablets Editor Gareth says "it's hard to recommend," and News Editor Kate reckons it is "too big. Way too big.” Last but not least, happy Windows day, because Windows 8.1 is out and we can give you 10 good reasons to update.

How Microsoft invented almost everything (including the wheel)

Of all the criticisms aimed at Microsoft, "you're no innovator!" must hurt the most: Microsoft has been present at many major technological developments. Sadly some of its ideas were better than its execution, while others were simply ahead of their time. Read more

The week's best buys

iPhone 5S is, predictably, the best iPhone ever from Apple - but what's intriguing is just how much we enjoyed using it. Anyone already wedded to the iPhone, or even if those on the fence, will find a lot of joy in a phone that's a lot more than an iterative update.

We really like the Nexus 7. Google has taken what made the original such a belter, corrected almost every niggle and made the Nexus 7 feel so much more premium while keeping it firmly in "amazing value" territory.

Surface makes you want to pick it up and play, pleases you with the delivery of Windows RT and the live tiles make it feel personal and alive. Microsoft's hardware designers should be applauded for delivering a solid tablet which offers a great experience.

What's your favourite streaming service?
@relequestual Netflix, for the price, is a damn good deal. No brainer for me now.
@rossbrand Wouldn't wanna live without Spotify and Netflix. I go to more gigs now than ever before. I just wish Netflix library was bigger.
‏@thedrewser72 Due to slow broadband I need content I can download, so that's Sky or iTunes (via Airplay from iPad) for me.
