Canon PowerShot G1 X a “Mark II

PowerShotG1XMarkIIHighEnd,AdvancedDigitalCameraI’m not sure why Canon dubbed this PowerShot G1 X a “Mark II.” It’s a completely different camera than its predecessor: a significantly redesigned body, new sensor, and wider-aperture lens. Basically, everything that matters. With the PowerShot G1 X, Canon made the poor choice of coupling a great sensor with a relatively narrow-aperture lens.

The Mark II incorporates a faster, wider, and longer 24-120mm f/2-3.9 lens which offers closer focus capability. It uses a lower-resolution version of its 1.5-inch CMOS sensor and a new autofocus system, swaps out the articulated LCD for a selfie-friendly tilting version, and drops the optical viewfinder for an optional electronic one.

But while some of those updates mark a change for the better — most notably, the increased lens flexibility — the results aren’t quite as great as I expected. For the most part, I like the camera for street shooting, but some irritating performance lags and not-as-great-as-I-expected image quality.

The Good With a couple of exceptions, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II is very well designed with a functional shooting layout.

The Bad The camera is relatively slow and given the price, the photo quality should be better. Also, the grip isn’t big enough to maintain a solid hold.

The Bottom Line The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II has some solid capabilities and a standout lens, but the overall experience just doesn’t live up to its price.

Nikon COOLPIX P530’s


Zoom way in with the extraordinary power of 42x optical zoom and capture sharp close-up photos and Full HD 1080p videos, then get insanely close with 84x Dynamic Fine Zoom—enough reach to see small details on subjects far in the distance. Add the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and use a compatible smartphone or tablet to share your shots and even take pictures with the Nikon Coolpix P530. The camera’s stylish, comfortable design with a grip, electronic viewfinder and high-resolution LCD make it easy to frame and record, while optical Vibration Reduction helps keep shots sharp when your hands are a bit unsteady. And for those who want total creative freedom, manual modes can be quickly accessed from the mode dial.


Get even closer to what matters Zoom in close with Dynamic Fine Zoom

  • Every COOLPIX is designed around a genuine NIKKOR glass lens, the legendary optics that have helped make Nikon famous. The COOLPIX P530’s 42x optical zoom lens goes from wide-angle—great for portraits and landscapes—all the way up to telephoto—great for closeups of sports, concerts, nature and more. When you need even more reach, zoom up to 42x with optical zoom and 84x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom function that effectively doubles your reach.

Share to your compatible smartphone or tablet. Compatible with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter for anytime, anywhere sharing

  • Connect the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi® enabled device. Use your compatible smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend.

Record superior videos Full HD 1080p videos with stereo sound for dazzling movies

  • If you want a compact camera that shoots stunning Full HD videos, the COOLPIX P530 delivers. Full HD 1080p means exceptional video quality. Record the action, then connect to an HDTV* and watch your videos come alive. A built-in mic records high-quality audio in stereo. Your videos will look and sound phenomenal.

Superior low-light performance High-performance CMOS image sensor lets you shoot without a flash

  • Imagine being able to shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties—anywhere your flash normally fires. You won’t have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX P530 performs so well in low light situations that, in most cases, using the flash is optional. Of course, when the lighting is extremely poor and you need a flash, it’ll be there

Don’t sweat a little camera shake

  • Optical Vibration Reduction keeps the shot steadier, even if your hands are not. Say goodbye to blurry photos, shaky videos and tripods.

Freeze action in its tracks

  • When the action speeds up, simply hold the shutter button and fire off up to 7 continuous shots per second. Catch views you may not have seen before in your photos.

Define your style

  • Easily change the look and feel of your photos with Color Options. Select from Standard, Vivid, Black & White, Sepia and Cyanotype.

Lock focus on moving subjects

  • Kids and pets are always on the go. Fortunately, the COOLPIX P530 includes Subject Tracking, which automatically locks onto a moving subject and helps keep it in focus until you’re ready to take the shot.


  • This camera’s Wi-Fi® capability using the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter can only be used with a compatible iPhone®, iPad®, and/or iPod touch® or smart devices running on the Android™ operating system.

Camping and Hiking

In general camping means a nature-oriented life in harmony with nature. For ASMC camping is part of our product philosophy.

Soldiers camp in all seasons and weather conditions. Consequently the camping section of ASMC has a military background. That is why we do not offer the classical camping range of products, but position ourselves deliberately in the section of camping/trekking/hiking with military background.
Thus e.g. some of our sleeping bags correspond to the strict military requirements that would never be reached by civil sleeping bags.

Sleeping Bag Grand Canyon Kansas 195 cm

Sleeping Bag Grand Canyon Kansas 195 cm

Three seasons allround sleeping bag, which is suitable for sub-zero usage. Since this sleeping bag can be extremely compressed and weighs less than 2 kg, is it perfect to use for enduring hiking tours or other outdoor activities. The lining, made of a cotton and polyester blend stores the warmth inside and leaves the cold outside.
An effective thermal collar provides additional insulation in the head area. This sleeping bag is suitable for left-handed or right-handed people, due to the encircled zipper.

In general camping is mobile camping, which means you keep changing your place. Consequently a small, lightweight tent as well as a minimal equipment with as little weight as possible is important to backpackers.
Also with bycicle tours as well as with backpacking the weight and the volume of the equipment is crucial.
ASMC offers for mobile as well as for stationary camping a huge choice at competitive prices of handy and practical products such as single- and double tents, sleeping pads, spirit stoves, cots, water filters, water sterelization, hammocks, folding chairs, dried food, camping dish sets etc.

Liven up Your Home with Area Rugs

Area rugs are inexpensive home accessories that can liven up your home. They occupy the central space of our floor, giving it a bit of fashion. Here are some of the various ways where rugs can transform a room.

bedroom with rug

It builds a focal point in the room. A room may not have a place that catches one’s attention because of the room size and the amount of wood or tiles on the floor. To build a focal point, put a rug either with color, or a pattern, or a combination of both. The point here is to have contrast. Instead of having a rug that has the same style or color of your walls, furniture or drapes get a rug that complements them.

grey italian rug

It protects your floor. Repairing or refurbishing a wooden or tiled floor is difficult; even replacing it is expensive. You can keep your floor intact with a rug. An area rug will protect your floor, particularly in high-traffic areas. It is also helpful, as it protects your children from hurting themselves.

rectangular area rug

It provides a soft support to your feet. Wearing your shoes all day and standing or walking on tile or concrete floor is not at all comfortable. Removing your shoes and stepping on an area rug makes your feet relaxed.

grey fabric sofa with rug

It warms up a room. A rug provides insulation during the winter season. It can also warm up a room with an uninviting atmosphere. (A room becomes uninviting if it lacks warm colors.)  Placing even a small rug will help make the room feel welcoming and warm.

rectangular area rug

It suppresses noise. The sound of hard soles or heels can be irritating. Suppress the noise by putting an area rug. The rug will soften the sound of footsteps in the hallway or traffic areas.

Beverly sofa

It helps to create smaller spots in a big room. An expansive living room is good to have, but it can be cold. Break it up to create smaller and inviting areas using area rugs to define spaces, such as a reading or play area. Arrange furniture appropriately and you get to produce more functional and inviting areas in your living room.

cotton tail rugIt minimizes the dirt in your home. Putting a small, simple area rug at your entryway will minimize the dust and dirt in your home. Yes, the doormat that we know is a simple type of area rug. Put a braided or wool rug just inside your door and it will capture the dirt and dust trapped in the sole of shoes. Put a rug on every outside entrance to control dirt coming into your home.

carver rug

It offers a cozy spot. You can enjoy a table game while seated on the rug. Or you can snuggle beside your loved one on the rug.

round table

There are several smarter and inexpensive ways than an area rug can liven up your home. Start redefining your home by incorporating area rugs in your living room, bedroom, dining room and hallway and on every door entrance. Remember to choose one that complements your room style, walls, curtains and modern furniture.

How to Light a Home Office

Expert strategies for the best ways to brighten your workspace

Today’s home office is more than just a place to work—it can also be a room to relax, catch up on emails, read, and watch TV, so it calls for lighting and furnishings to accommodate these various functions. On top of that, it needs to harmonize with the rest of the home, and provide a sense of atmosphere and comfort. For tips on how to best illuminate a home office, we turned to Chicago-based interior designer Carole Post known for her streamlined contemporary projects—and her smart, layered approach to lighting.

Tizio Classic LED Table Lamp by Artemide

In a commercial setting, you want a consistent single-level light source—not so much ambiance or atmosphere. In a home office, you want to achieve different levels of light to create a mood and atmosphere that is interesting and flows with the design of the house. Since it’s a private space, you can be a little bolder. You can hang a statement pendant, for example, or use lighting to emphasize a piece of artwork, or accent the architecture through wall washing.

Warm 4926 Pendant Light by Vibia

Keep in mind that it’s a functional place for you to work but it should also reflect your personality and interests. It should have a comfortable, properly lit area for reading, relaxing, and viewing a computer screen or a TV and a place to display collections or artwork.

As such, lighting should be layered to enhance the various roles of the room. I consider the natural light conditions and choose a combination of ambient, task, and accent fixtures. You need ambient lighting—such as recessed or ceiling-mounted fixtures; sconces; or up lights—to establish an overall level of lighting in the room. Task lights—a desk lamp, or a floor lamp next to a chair—are specifically for working at a computer, writing, or reading. And accent fixtures—a small, recessed wall-washing can, monopoint, or uplight from the floor—can be used to highlight art or architectural features.

Equo Gen 3 LED Desk Lamp by Koncept

When layering lighting, the fixtures and light sources should not be a distraction. I like to have one fixture, like a pendant, make a strong visual statement, and then the rest of the lighting—whether recessed or accent lighting—work around the perimeter of the room to highlight features and objects.

At the end of the day, the most important thing is the quality of light and how it renders color. Light sources should be of similar color temperature for balance. If you’re using incandescent and halogen sources, be sure your LED lamping is at a warm Kelvin temperature similar to incandescent (2700k-3500k). Investing in a dimming system is energy efficient and allows you to easily control the levels of light.

Dear Ingo Chandelier by Moooi

I don’t usually like using recessed fixtures for general ambient lighting in a home office because it tends to create hot spots and can look very static. General ambient lighting can be achieved quite effectively by using a large pendant fixture with a diffused light source. Pendants can also add a dramatic element to the room.

I love Marcel Wanders’ Skygarden from Flos, or Vibia’s Warm Pendant for a more subtle design; both provide a beautiful, soft glow. Another great option when you need more directed light is Ron Gilad’s Dear Ingo for Moooi. It’s an iconic piece that can be used in variety of spaces, from industrial to classical. When it comes to hanging a pendant, locate it in the center of the room, at least 6 feet above the finished floor.

Wall sconces and uplights can also balance ambient light by bouncing light off ceilings and walls. Flos’ Foglio gives a beautiful up and down glow of light, and would be great in a space where you want to accentuate the architecture and get some reflected light off the ceiling.

A dim or improperly lit office can make you sleepy. You’ll get eye fatigue if there’s poor light when you’re looking at a computer screen. To avoid this, be sure to layer in corrective light, such as a task light behind the computer screen.

I prefer simple, clean fixtures that can easily articulate at the arm, head, and in height. I also recommend LEDs to avoid heat while working or reading. Artemide’s Tizio is a classic design that’s now offered in LED. I really like Koncept’s Z-Bar and Equo designs, which are available in desk and floor versions. They both can be configured in different shapes, and you can twist and turn them when you want them out of the way.

Be sure the base of your task lamp doesn’t take up too much surface area and that the fixture is stable when positioned.

Tech Lighting’s Element series is great for highlighting artwork or wall washing, and I particularly like the flexibility of their 4-inch adjustable downlight, which has a great aiming angle. If a room has eight-foot ceilings, install the lights 24 to 30 inches in from the wall.

When ceiling conditions don’t allow for a recessed fixture, a monopoint is an excellent alternative. Tech Lighting’s Joshua and T156 Head are great low-voltage options that give off a tight, crisp beam. For a line-voltage alternative, Marset’s Atlas has a unique, minimal design with a wider angle of light, and I love Marset’s Moma if you need a wall-mounted picture light.

In general it’s ideal to have natural light sources in front of or adjacent to work surfaces and computer screens to avoid glare. This also optimizes views to the outside. If exposures have varying brightness during the day, you can use solar shades to soften and cut down on heat without compromising the light source and view.

Placing shelving and storage behind the work surface allows for easy access and can create an interesting visual. In larger spaces, I’ll often envelop shelving around the room for a more intimate atmosphere. A comfortable seating area or single chaise or lounge chair can be placed as the plan allows—often somewhere in front of the work surface.

Fashion Tips For Mens

What are the most comfortable men’s dress shoes?

As much weight as a man puts on his feet, the comfort of his dress shoes should be the number one concern of his wardrobe.

Profession business attire from the head down to the foot must fit comfortably, and must remain comfortable throughout the work day.

For men, a comfortable dress shoe has to be a top priority. Because most shoe purchases are final, it is important to know before you begin shopping exactly what features in dress shoes bring the most comfort to your feet.




 There are four major factors to consider when reviewing shoe comfort. First, what style of shoe is most comfortable? Secondly, how is the interior of the shoe constructed?

Thirdly, does the heel of the shoe feel comfortable? Finally, what is my foot size in length and width?

There are two basic styles of dress shoes for men: those that tie with laces and those that slip on. Each style has a very different feel to it. The tie up shoe tends to feel more snug and enveloping of the entire foot. The slip on is more open, and allows a freer motion of the foot. How comfortable each is depends greatly on the individual consumer. The pitfall of the tie up shoe is a cramped feeling. For the slip on, since there is no adjustment, it can feel either too loose or too tight as the shoe breaks into its mold.


More important than the style is the interior construction of the shoe. The thickness of the shoe’s pad may not have an effect when the shoe is first purchased, but it will have a great effect when the shoe is three to six months old. If it is not thick enough, the heel will quickly wear through to the rubber of the sole. If the pad does wear through, shoe inserts will correct the problem for a while, in most cases.

The thickness of the pad is hard to gauge from mere observation. Shoe manufacturers often provide written information about the interior construction of shoe. If such information is not readily available, ask the sales associate about the thickness of the pad.

Arch support is also very important. Even though arch support is a standard feature, make sure it feels right for your foot. Some men have flatter or deeper arches than what is normal for their size of foot.

Dress Formal

In addition to arch support, metatarsal support is becoming very common. This is a slight ridge in the pad behind the balls of the toes. Metatarsal support is a new feature that takes some getting used to. It has a funny feel at first, but over time it does add to the overall comfort of the shoe. Simply stick your hand into the toe of the shoe to check for this feature.

The height of the heel on a dress shoe is less of a factor for men than for women, but it can still have an impact on long term comfort. Body muscles in the legs and back get more use sustaining correct body posture as the heel of the shoe heightens. If a man cannot stand at ease in a pair of dress shoes, the heels may be too high. This posture discomfort is why many men who want to dress in a western style have such a hard time breaking in cowboy boots, which typically have higher heels.

Sneakers / Athletics

Finally, the size of the dress shoe is paramount. First, know the width of your foot: narrow, normal, or wide. Most shoes are designed to fit the normal width. If your foot is not standard, do not compromise your comfort for a standard shoe. Shoes designed specifically for narrow or wide feet do cost more, but the comfort in the feet far exceeds the pain in the wallet.



Secondly, dress shoes are constructed all over the world, and the size standard is not always the same. It is good, therefore, to look at the shoes of your normal size and in one half sizes each direction of your normal size to find the best fit. If you just look at the size you have always worn, you may be missing out on the pair a half size larger, that actually looks and feels better
