TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tech Talk with Andy Taylor, this morning he's talking about a wireless mouse and the best cameras for action photos.

First off is the Logitech new multi-function mouse - in many businesses and homes these days there are multiple computers and having multiple mouse units could possibly be confusing. According to Taylor Logitech has addressed both 'the cord spaghetti and multi-system issues' with the release of the Logitech MX Master wireless mouse.

This mouse fits comfortably in the user's right hand giving them quick and easy access to controls to easily switch between up to three different systems.

The customizable controls take the confusion out of using the system by easily switching between computers with a handy button at the bottom of the sturdy feeling mouse referred to as the Logitech Easy-Switch™. Scrolling on the top wheel can be adapted for your comfort when it comes to speed as well as a thumb wheel which can be used for side to side scrolling or even changing pages on some documents.

Another loveable feature of the Logitech MX Master is the ability to communicate with other operating systems and brands. The ability to connect to desktop, laptop and tablet with devices which support Bluetooth® smart technology make this an end solution for those that want to move between them fast and easy. Included with the Logitech MX Master is a Logitech unifying receiver to plug into systems which may not be Bluetooth® ready. Have a PC and a Mac? No problem, the mouse can work with both and includes the ability to customize the gesture controls on the Mac for easily and quickly working with the systems.

The Logitech MX Master also needs no batteries. An included cord, which is easily plugged into the front of the mouse, can charge the rechargeable unit quickly. Logitech says four minutes can gives one day of usage and a full charge can last about 40 days depending on usage. The Logitech Darkfield Laser™ is designed to be used on many surfaces including glass and other high gloss surfaces. The Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse has a really great feel to it, smooth in use and not limited to one PC or Mac. The SRP is around $99 but worth every dollar.

Next Taylor talks action cameras.

ProDad Software is a company that has developed some really great software for use with not only action camera footage but also for the standard video captures that may not have achieved the desired look or was just a little too shaky. With many drones, car and motorcycle mounts, skiing footage and even dog harnesses for cameras – the footage can be impressive but even the minimal shake in the camera can detract from the once in a lifetime thrill.

The ProDrenalin package is considered to be the 'whole enchilada' when it comes to footage captured with today's action cameras and is used to take finished video shot with imperfections in quality to action shakes and clean it up. The easy to use interface can remove fisheye we have seen with many action cameras, stabilize the action and even take out noise prevalent in many situations where lighting can change from scene to scene.

Side by Side comparisons of the finished footage can be seen on the ProDad website. The sample videos can really demonstrate the potential of the

ProDrenalin software which is one of the first applications to support 4k and 2.7k resolutions. Available for both Mac and PC the ProDad ProDrenalin also supports a variety of camera profiles to easily adjust for the best look.

For users who do not have an action camera, but has footage they would like to clean up and 'de-shake', the ProDrenalin software can be a great solution.

A Trial version can be downloaded from the ProDad site and the full version is priced under $50.
