PANZER GENERAL 3D ASSAULT

Генералу снился страшный сон: поле боя внезапно стало холмистым, самолеты, вместо того чтобы ползать по земле, вдруг вознеслись в небо, а во главе подразделений встали невесть откуда взявшиеся офицеры с лицами, похожими на агитационные плакаты. “Приснится же галиматья”, — по-доброму подумал Генерал и перевернулся на другой бок.

Скажем прямо: если вы думали, что от акселерированной трехмерности происходящее на экране стало выглядеть хоть чуточку реалистичнее или хотя бы менее ортодоксально, чем во всех предыдущих “Генералах”, включая Rites of War, который совсем не General, вы страшно, жестоко ошибаетесь. Игра по-прежнему является картонной декорацией, хотя уже и стала больше похожа на пенопластовый макет

Panasonic VIERA TXPR50VT60

Начнем с того, что Panasonic не оставляет плазменную технологию без своего участия вот уже много лет,в отличие от многих других брендов, прекративших поставки плазмы в течение нескольких последних лет. Кроме того, перед нами — очередная реинкарнация технологии Neo Plasma, заявленной два гола назад на смену панелям NeoPDP. В ней прозрачные электроды получили геометрию типа «рыбий скелет», благодаря которому уменьшилось стартовое напряжение разряда. Новый диэлектрический слой гоже облегчает запуск разряда, применен «быстрый» люминофор с коротким после-свечением, уменьшенная высота ячеек, новый материал фильтра повысил контрастность изображения в освещенном помещении.

Несмотря на то, что энергопотребление современных плазменных аппаратов упало до вполне приемлемых величин,

PANASONIC TX-L50E6B

£850

Panasonic has won group tests and five-star reviews in almost every screen size we’ve tested so far in 2013. So we’re surprised that the TX-L50E6B doesn’t impress us in quite the same way.

The TX-L50E6B is one of Panasonic’s cheaper sets this year, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at it. It looks very similar to the rest of the LCD range, with its slim silver bezel and rectangular stand.

The stand doesn’t swivel, making it a little tricky to place. And it’s pretty much a no-go if you want to hang it on the wall, as all

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF6. Fused Connections.

The Panasonic GF6 may be entry-level, but it has the latest in terms of connectivity and features.

Just a year after the introduction of the GF5, Panasonic has announced the LUMIX DMC-GF6. With the introduction of this camera one can see a clear-cut effort from Panasonic to make a very strong base in the entry-level mirrorless segment. The 16.05MP GF6 has a lot of interesting technology that it borrows from the G6, including WiFi connectivity and NFC.

HOW WE TEST

Product Categorisation

We first segregate products into categories for the purpose of equitability in testing. The DSLR is divided into

PANASONIC SC-NE3

£250 ★★★★★

The Panasonic SC-NE3 wireless music speaker looks set to give the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 (and 200) a run for its money as the most well connected wireless speaker. With AirPlay, Bluetooth and DLNA streaming, the SC-NE3 looks a treat for a competitively priced £250. But our high hopes were quickly dashed once we started streaming…

We’ll be honest: there’s not a whole lot we can say in favour of the Panasonic SC-NE3’s sound. While its large build means the sound travels far and wide in a room, the sluggish delivery, poor detail definition and lack of

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6.

With the Looks of a small DSLR and many helpful features, is this the perfect beginner’s camera?

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6 looks, on paper, like a feature-packed camera that’s perfect for the aspiring amateur, and it certainly lived up to our expectations.

The 16.05MP sensor might not be winning the megapixel race, and its Micro Four Thirds size is smaller than the APS-C sensors found in the likes of Samsung’s NX300, but its feature set makes up for that. While the smaller sensor may mean a small drop in image quality, this does mean it’s compatible with other MFT lenses.

PANAROMAS MADE FUN. Add Some Foreground Impact.

While making panoramas of vast landscapes, you can create impact by including an interesting foreground element. Due to their unique aspect ratio, panoramas provide for a wide expanse which can help you make the best of the foreground. For example, when shooting a forest you can include a few blades of grass immediately in front of you. This is a stronger compositional choice and conveys more information about the scenery.

Stitch With a Twist

If you prefer stitching multiple photographs together by simply using the panorama mode, you can also have quite a lot of fun. Previsualise the final image

Panasonic Lumix DMC G2

When Panasonic released the Lumix DMC G1, it was the first digital interchangeable lens camera system that would just about fit into a pocket.

The tiny body and lenses were achievable thanks to Panasonic’s pioneering development of the Micro Four Thirds system. Using a half full-frame size sensor, already enabled Four Thirds lenses to be closer to the sensor plane than conventional DSLR cameras, but in the Micro system, this was reduced further, as there was no mirror mechanism restricting the distance of the back of the lens to the sensor. This allowed the diameter of the lenses needed to

Pallas

BIGGEST ASTEROID

Of course, like the biggest mountain, the size of asteroids and the limitation of current observational technology mean that the biggest asteroids we know of are restricted to those in our own Solar System. There’s also a technicality in their definition: with a diameter of 950 kilometres (590 miles) and containing around one third of the total mass of the asteroid belt, Ceres used to be the biggest asteroid but was upgraded to ‘dwarf planet’ in 2006, handing fellow asteroid belt object Pallas the accolade of biggest known asteroid by default.

However, with an average diameter of 544
