Canon EOD 5D Mark III

Latest review

Name: Canon EOD 5D Mark III

Company: Canon

Price: $4000-5000

The Canon EOD 5D Mark III is an investment beyond the realms of an amateur enthusiast, but if your father is a keen photographer, you can't get much better before going towards the most exclusive kits. Apart from incredible image quality of 22-megapixel images at 6fps, the Mark III can record full HD movies, has an ISO sensitivity of 100–25,60 -- expandable to ISO 102,400 -- and 61 point AF.

Bose VideoWave III entertainment system

Name: VideoWave III entertainment system

Company: Bose

Price: $9200

The VideoWave III entertainment system, manufactured by Bose, is a step up from standard speakers. The HDTV comes with a home cinema and music system, and Bose technology removes the need for traditional speakers and a subwoofer. Media comes through on a 1080p LED backlit display and you can connect your entertainment system via Wi-Fi. A pricey gift for Father's day, but no doubt an appreciated one.

Vertu Signature mobile phone

Name: Signature

Company: Vertu

Price: $12,600 - $49,000

The price tag of the Vertu Signature is enough to make most of us swallow, but if you have money to burn, this stand-out smartphone is a luxurious gift. The smartphone's battery cover is encased in hand-worked leather, and the keypad contains 4.75 carats of ruby bearings. Sapphire is treated and used to layer the phone, making it impossible to shatter the screen through drops and tumbles. 

As an add-on, Vertu also includes exclusive ringtones created by composer Dario Marianelli, and a concierge service is available through a button on the handset.

Taking a trip down memory lane, perhaps your father would appreciate the Pac-Man Arcade Machine Cocktail Table.

Avegant Glyph

Name: Glyph

Company: Avegant

Price: $499

The Avegant Glyph, originating from a Kickstarter project, is a set of headphones equipped with a flip-down screen to give users an immersive experience when viewing media such as films and television shows, as well as for gaming purposes. Instead of using a traditional, flat display, the Glyph incorporates a Virtual Retinal Display which uses mirrors to reflect an image directly in to your retina -- resulting in clearer image capture. 

Expected to ship next year, the device can now be preordered -- not in time for now, to be sure, but you can tick next year's Father's day gift off the list.

The iWallet is a smart wallet which uses biometric technology to protect your cash, credit cards and personal information.
