Samsung H200 video test

A Great Camcorder with many great features
-Great video quality in all modes, 60 frames per second really helps here.
-Stills from video look great for prints up to 6x9 (1080i) or 4x6 (720P).
--- If you've ever tried to capture lightning in pictures, this is a time saver)
-Great battery life, around 2.5 hours. Compare that with Canon, Sony or Panasonic.
-Great for close up work and "low light" videography
-decent optical stabilization along with 20x optical zoom

Download Format Factory! Most editing programs have trouble with the AVCHD format and this "FREE" program converts your camera video to your format of choice. You can choose file size and frame rate. This will make your life so much easier. "This may be Windows only". Google it!

cons: In 720P mode a new file is created every 20.5 minutes which results in a small but noticable gap in your recording. If you plan on using this to made DVD's or web video, 420P (720x480) will do nicely and last over an hour before a new file is created. Probably more often in 1080i but most of my shooting is in 720P.

Our opinion
Samsung H200 - good camera but some build quality complaints.

Here are some interesting facts, features and innovations about the new Range Rover Evoque

The same sleek, striking silhouette as the coupé, with the added practicality and convenience of five doors.
With an engaging blend of dynamic handling and refined engineering, the Range Rover Evoque’s compact footprint and advanced technology deliver exciting performance together with the lowest fuel consumption of any Range Rover to date. You can also opt for the eD4 2WD Diesel engine to further help optimise your fuel economy.
The dynamic profile, dramatic rising beltline and muscular shoulders give Range Rover Evoque a natural presence and magnetism.
There’s also a wide range of smart technology options from LED and Xenon lighting to towing cameras. You can even add a dramatic full panoramic roof.
Intuitive technology to enhance your comfort and convenience includes advanced Voice Control and two multi-function high-definition colour displays.
The central 8 inch Touch-screen is the signature Range Rover control and display interface for communication and entertainment, while directly in front of the driver there’s a new 5 inch colour information display.
Subtle, customer configurable, interior mood lighting creates a signature Range Rover driving experience day and night.
Both active and passive safety technologies on Range Rover Evoque are state-of-the-art. The high strength safety cell, airbags and advanced restraint systems provide an exceptional degree of safety for you and your passengers.
The powerful all-disc braking system is complemented by the latest generation of active electronic safety systems, while the advanced traction and stability technology is configured to maximise performance and safety in the widest range of driving conditions.
The 8 inch Touch-screen together with the 5 inch full colour driver information (TFT) display represents a revolution in the clarity and accessibility of driver information, communication and entertainment. Other essential information or commands can be accessed easily and safely through the multi-function steering wheel controls and the optional, intuitive Voice Control system.

Audi A6 3.0 TDI Avant consumer review

Audi A6 3.0 TDI Avant consumer review - interior and exterior design, build quality and technical specifications

Audi A6 3.0 TDI Avant is a nice looking car

Audi uses ‘Avant’ as other car makers might use ‘Sports Tourer’ or ‘Sportwagon’. The idea is to suggest load-carrying practicality laced with a rakishness suggestive of an adventurous lifestyle. The Audi A6 Avant here is the latest of this Audi breed.

The A6 range entered its seventh generation back in February, with much aluminium in its make-up, a 70kg weight loss, a reconfigured transmission layout bringing the front wheels further forward, and powertrain revisions to reduce the official CO2 outputs. The idea was to create the look and feel of an A8 but in a smaller size, and with a multimedia system of almost sci-fi sophistication.

BMW 3-series F30 review
BMW 3-series F30

3-series 30 specifications
Here is how the most popular BMW of all time will look in the next few years. Considering the old model was a great success, BMW designers didn't change radically the profile of the car and it still keeps clean sporty profile with some interesting design features.

BMW probably wanted to bring the design of the new 3 series more in-line with the look of its other new cars, mainly the 5, 6 and 7 Series. BMW 3 F30 will have a hybrid model in it's range as well naturally aspirated straight-six engines from 325i/330i are replaced by BMW's new N20 turbocharged inline-four two liter engine already introduced in a lot of BMW models. Top of the range 335i has the same N55 engine as E90. Diesel powertrain is still two liter inline-four N47 engine which is optimized for the new car.

Asus Eee Pad Slider specs and video review | phone review

Asus Eee Pad Slider specs and video review

Pros: Will run the latest Android OS and Adobe Flash
Full slide-out QWERTY keyboard
10.1″ IPS touch-screen with resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels
2 cameras (5 Megapixel camera with LED flash and 1.2 Megapixel front-facing camera)
1080p HD video playback support
Cons: Bulky
No trackpad
6-hour battery life isn’t optimal (the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 can get up to 10 hours and the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer can get up to 16 hours when connected to the keyboard)
Summary: It seems to me like this tablet might be a flop: serious typers fans can get the reasonably-priced Transformer and keyboard, and those who care more about appearance can get the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and its case with the built-in Bluetooth keyboard that comes out later this month… The Slider is a strange in-between: the sliding keyboard adds bulk, but there’s no trackpad.

Sony DSC-W360 unboxing - video

What we think about it
Generally we love Sony digital cameras. Most of them are very well build and offer good quality pictures at very good competitive price. We like this one as well. Probably the only drawback of the DSC-W360 is its short battery live.
