Fujifilm India on Monday introduced a new mirrorless camera which is equipped with Next-Gen image sensor and processing engine, aiming to achieve 30 per cent share in the Indian mirrorless market in the next three-four years.

Priced at Rs 74,999 (body only), the 383-gram, 4K X-T30 camera features the latest 26.1MP “X-Trans CMOS 4” sensor and the fast “X-Processor 4” image processing engine to achieve a superior image quality, the company said in a statement.


The X-T30 kit is priced at Rs 94,999 for 18-55mm and Rs 99,999 for 18-135mm lens.

“The camera industry in India is dynamic and we have witnessed a significant consumption of 4K cameras from the professional segment. X-T30 not only offers a novel photography experience to the end users but also brings the imaging industry to new heights in terms of product design,” said Haruto Iwata, Managing Director, Fujifilm India Pvt Ltd.

The X-T30 inherits exterior design features of the current model X-T20 while providing excellent operability with a new grip design that enhances stable grip when holding the camera, a touchscreen panel display with improved response performance and the “Focus Lever” that facilitates faster focusing operation.

The camera is also equipped with the “Auto Mode Selector Lever” that allows the user to instantaneously switch to a fully-automatic shooting mode.

“We’ve also brought an intelligent sensor and a swift image processing engine into this compact and lightweight body to achieve ultimate image quality,” added Iwata.

The aim of the book is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

By Siddhi Jain

Delhi-based author Pritisha Borthakur is set to release her new book, 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories'. The 1,404-word children's book was put together to address a new kind of societal debacle in the family system. The author says the aim is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.

Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.

Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background

Clean and maintained hands boost confidence in daily life activities.

If you feel that clean and well-groomed hands are just an essential prerequisite for women, you might like to think twice. Men should equally pay attention to their hands because our hand houses 1,500 bacteria living on each square centimeter of its skin. You can easily assume what havoc it can create in our body because in India we have the culture of eating with our hands and spaces beneath nails can become breeding heaven for germs. Moreover, clean and maintained hands boost confidence in their daily life activities. Therefore, it's important to keep your hands clean irrespective of your gender by washing or sanitizing at regular intervals. And, to keep them groomed, you don't have to visit a salon.

Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:

* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
