Mirrorless cameraCanon EOS M3: review and testing

It is not a secret that the largest market lion of classic SLR cameras is divided among Canon and Nikon. And after the appearance of mirrorless cameras, both producers took a waiting position. Such a move was quite justified: should we change something if everything is okay? While other manufacturers have managed to saturate the market with their own solutions and to attract the attention of the world community.  The company Nikon with lineup Nikon 1 also joined to such manufactures.  And only in the late summer of 2012 Canon introduced the first mirrorless system camera - Canon EOS M (where «M» means Mirrorless). But in contrast to its rival, Canon did not invent a new format sensor, but has equipped its creation with proven APS-C matrix. Despite this, the new product could not compete in this segment. The second was Canon EOS M2, which could not significantly affect the state of affairs, including due to the presence in the Japanese market only. In order to fix the situation recently the company has introduced Canon EOS M3, which had time to visit our test lab, and we want to share our impressions of familiarity with it. 

Canon EOS M3

In comparison with its predecessor, the novelty has significantly updated design and construction, the sensor with resolution increased to 24.2 megapixel, updated autofocus Hybrid CMOS AF III, proprietary processor DIGIC 6 and a number of other equally interesting features. All this and more will be describe in detail in this review. Let’s start from the specifications Canon EOS M3:

Nikon 1 V3 Mirrorless camera: review and testing

After the announcement of a new class of mirrorless cameras, a considerable number of manufacturers of photographic equipment quickly filled the market with own solutions. Instead, Nikon had a three-year break, and only then presented cameraы Nikon 1 J1 and V1. Mirrorless camera got a new matrix CX format and its own bayonet called Nikon 1, which allowed to take an intermediate between reflex (not only with the full-frame, but APS-C-matrices) and compact. Furthermore, it excluded the possibility of competition of adjacent lines. Solutions with index «V» are aimed to the most demanding users. They have a high functionality, the electronic viewfinder and a rich set of controls. Models with an index «J» have received simplified construction and are designed for everyday use. Currently lineup of mirrorless cameras took several generations and was supplemented by younger models with index «S», and in recent years with secure the camera Nikon 1 AW1.

Functionality of ASUS networking equipment

First of all let's remember what is "networking equipment" and its purpose. Of course, many are familiar with the materiel, but anyway it is useful to refresh knowledge.


So the networking equipment is divided into active and passive, and the second has only the toggle and switches. We are not talking about it in this review but ASUS produces it. Nevertheless, noticeable functionality and controllability is suitable only for the active equipment, which we will analyze.

Networking equipment classification

According to Wikipedia: "... active equipment is the equipment containing circuits are powered from the mains or other sources, and performs the functions of amplification, signal conversion, etc." It refers to the ability to process signals by special algorithms. The package data transfer is realized network. Also each package contains technical information: information about its source, purpose, integrity of information, etc. Active networking equipment not only detects and transmits a signal, but processes the technical information, redirecting and spreading the incoming streams in accordance with embedded algorithms in the memory device. This "smart" feature, along with the mains, is a sign of active equipment. For example, the active equipment includes the following types of devices:

  • AC adapter is a board installed in computer and provides a connection to the LAN (local area network);
  • repeater is the unit with 2 ports, designed to replicate the signal in order to increase the length of the network segment;
  • hub (active hub, multiport repeater) is a device with 4-32 ports, used to group users into the network;
  • bridge is a device with 2 ports, usually used to connect multiple LAN groups that allows filtering of network traffic, analyzing network MAC-address;
  • switch is a device with a few (4-32) ports commonly used to combine several working LAN groups (otherwise known as a multiport bridge);
  • router is used to connect multiple LAN groups and allows filtering of network traffic, analyzing network IP-address;
  • media converter is a device with 2 ports normally used to convert the data transmission medium (coaxial↔ twisted pair, twisted pair ↔ optical fiber);
  • network transceiver is a unit with 2 ports normally used to convert the data interface (RS232↔V35, AUI↔UTP).

Note that some experts do not include repeater and hub, as these devices are repeating the signal to increase the distance of connection or topological branching and do not provide its processing. But the controlled hubs are active network equipment, as may have a certain "intellectual aspect."

In general, the most important signs of active network equipment is its ability to control and be controlled from outside.

The review of active networking is quite extensive aspect, so we'll start our approach from the most required by modern equipment allowing to save on GPRS and 3G, connect your favorite tablets and get the most free and fast internet. Today we look at current networking features of Wi-Fi-routers.

Actual devices must be able to function in multiple topologies and communicate over different protocols often not only the latest but also obsolete.

Networking devices of company ASUS not only follow the established standards but introduce new aspects that claim to be widely accepted.

Wireless Router TP-LINK Archer C2: review and testing

Despite the fact that the network equipment is significantly different from the video cards, processors or monitors, the specific of markets in all cases remains the same, regardless of the type of components. First of all the market is extended by top devices, and then more affordable solutions.

The same situation was observed after the announcement of wireless router standard IEEE 802.11ac. The first of this class of routers were impressive not only due to its performance and capabilities, but also the price tag. When the new mode has gained certain popularity and all legal issues were resolved, computer equipment shops were flooded with low-cost solutions.

TP-LINK Archer C2

One is the TP-LINK Archer C2, which nominally belongs to the class AC750. By the way, this is not the cheapest router in theup line of the network equipment TP-LINK Archer. For those who do not need gigabit ports, the manufacturer offers a "lite" version of the device - TP-LINK Archer C20i. It uses a simplified hardware platform, and the maximum speed of transmission via LAN-interface limited to 100 Mb/s. Let us hope that this model will soon fall to us for testing, and we now have the router TP-LINK Archer C2.

Ultrabook ASUS ZENBOOK UX305FA: review and testing

When in 2011 Intel presented a new and unique concept of a portable computer device, only few could have imagined that just a few years the ultrabooks will have a quite massive popularity. Today it is difficult to find a large manufacturer without at least one such gadget. But at the same time it became clear that new devices require an advanced hardware platform that can not fully function in such a compact space, but also seamlessly show a good result.


Best engineers from Intel decided to solve this complex problem. The result of their hard work was the development of a new generation of processors Intel Core M with record levels of performance and energy efficiency per watt of consumed energy. Thus, compared with the previous generation, it was possible to significantly reduce the level of heat (up to 60%), decrease the degree of power consumption (up to 45%) and to increase the processing power (40%) produced by microarray. And thanks to the introduction of the latest manufacturing process (14 nm), the area of the produced crystals was decreased by almost a half, enabling much more effective use of the available space, as well as deliver a portable device based on the new processors by the active cooling system.


In this review, we will look at a magnificent example of modern ultra-compact computer equipment - ultrabook ASUS ZENBOOK UX305FA. Also we will try to analyze the effectiveness of a new hardware platform powered by Intel, as well as learn what additional capabilities has this very interesting and very promising market segment.
