The X100F and X-T20 are successors to the X100T and X-T10, respectively, feature familiar designs with the new sensors and processors that debuted with the higher-end X-Pro2 and X-T2 last year.

The Fujifilm X100F is the newest sibling in the much-loved X100 line of compact, and also fixed-focal-length cameras. The new X100F model has an ‘advanced hybrid viewfinder’ similar to what you see on the X-Pro2 and also a 35mm f/2.0 lens. It is an optical rangefinder-style peephole with up to 6x magnification and digital overlays for extra information about your shot—things like focus peaking and exposure settings. It offers same hybrid hybrid phase- and contrast-detection autofocus system as the X-T20.

In addition to featuring Fujifilm’s latest 24.3MP X-Trans III sensor, the new X-T20 features new touchscreen controls that enable you to both capture shots and review your images. The new X-T20 also seed a host of other improvements including a 4K video shooting up to 30fps and a boosted ±5 stops of exposure compensation.

Users can now add a Grain effect for a distinctive film-like graininess, in addition to Fujifilm’s film-simulation filters.

Like the X100F, the Fujifilm X-T20 also features 91 autofocus points that easily cover the full image sensor.

Price

While both cameras are cheaper than the X-Pro2, they will still set you back. The Fujifilm X100F goes on sale next month for $1,300, while X-T20 is $900 for the body or $1,200 for a kit that includes an 18-55mm, and f/2.8-f/4 zoom lens.

The previous Fujifilm X-T10 and X100T are capable shooters, and because they are one year or two old, they’ll see a price drop now that the newest version are out.

Choosing a web hosting service can be a difficult task, especially for those people who are new to running a website and do not know much about hosting, or what kind of hosting they need. For instance, If your plans to start an e-commerce-based business, then choosing the right web host service can be the difference between having consistent sales or consistant headache. The right partner or the right web hosting service will help your website to load quickly, stay secure, and never go offline. Selecting the wrong kind of hosting can be an expensive mistake.

web-hosting

 

I have compiled five important factors you should consider when choosing hosting service, so that you can make an informed decision and find the hosting solution that’s good for your website.

Look For Reliability

Web hosting service helps your website to stay online. If you select a service that does not have consistent uptime, then you are gambling on your website being live when customers come to make purchases. For instance, what would happen if your website went offline for a few hours during any special occasion? Of course it means lost money, you are not able to sell your products if your website went offline. So goes for those web hosting service that will keep your website to stay online.

Performance

Apart from the being online, there is also a thing that we see in most of the website, yes a slow website. Most of the customers will not wait for your pages to load, particularly your home and product page. For instance, if someone comes to your website on more than one occasion only to be turned off by how slowly your pages load, then the customer gone forever, and you lost your customer forever. So the speed is also a factor to lose your money, so make sure you select those service that will speed up your page.

Customers Service Matter

Although it might seem like a good idea to choose the clothing hosting service in your local area, you want to make sure that they have someone available around that time if your website goes down. Choosing the clothing service, so keep in mind it should offer 24/7 support, means that clothing service only helps in business hours so that also make your money lost.

Security

You should ask the web hosting service that, will it manage your security for your website or not? If they do not manage, so of course you will need to do it yourself. For example, if you have two services – one offers a manage security option and the other one does not – then choose the managed option, it will better for your website. Managed service constantly updates software and patch security flaws as needed.

Integrations & Bundled Software

Most web hosting company offers a variety of different bundled software and integrations, such as some provided you online shopping cart tool. Some services offer, drag-and-drop builders, security software, email marketing plug-in. So the benefit of those bundled software is that, you don’t have to work with an outside vendor.

At CES 2017 3D scanning will be in evident in not only the numerous VR applications but also with a new product from Silicon Valley based Bellus3D. The company have announced they’ll share their Face Camera accessory for Android mobiles and tablets. This 3D scanning tool is capable of creating a detailed face scan in seconds.

The Bellus 3D Face Camera can be fixed on the top of any Android tablet or mobile device and then can click a awesome and realistic, high-resolution image of a person’s face in mere seconds. How does that happen? The new Bellus 3D Face Camera uses the combination of two IR sensors which are 1.2MP along with 1.2MP colour sensors. It throws two IR laser projects and a front facing camera into the tech mix and the results are impressive 3D scans and pictures of one’s face. These technologies mix to help colour a scan of the face and produce the final picture.

Bellus 3D

Scanning a head is as easy as sitting in front of the camera within the displayed ring, and turning your head slowly left and right. The camera takes about 20 sec to process the scan, after which you are presented with an image that can be panned and lit as you see fit. The Face Camera outputs results as standard .obj files, meaning that it is easy to use them in 3D projects or print them for stunningly realistic (and slightly unnerving) 3D masks.

The Bellus 3D company is currently trying to add more interesting features to the device such as allowing user to digitally and virtually put on makeup or create virtual reality avatars. Currently, the new Bellus 3D Face Camera is only a prototype but the company expects a proper release by end of 2017 . It may carry a price tag of $300.

After months of scoffing at the thought, Verizon is seems ready to concede that unlimited data is really making a comeback in the wireless industry. The company started offering its customers the Verizon Unlimited plan, which is designed to compete with the similar offerings from each of Verizon’s three national competitors.

Verizon follows in the footsteps of T-Mobile and Sprint, which both offer various ‘unlimited’ plans. Both the smaller companies have been nipping at the heels of the big dogs, Verizon and AT&T, and it is interesting to see Verizon, which has a reputation for being the most reliable carrier—but also the most expensive—finally re-enter the unlimited waters.

verizon-unlimited-data-plan
Verizon Unlimited plan

The plan will cost $80 for an individual line or $45 for each line on a four-line family plan. Those prices are described as ‘introductory’ and require both paperless billing and AutoPay to be enabled. Customers get full LTE speeds until they reach 22GB of usage, after which they will be subject to reduced data speeds and de-prioritization.

The unlimited plan also allows customers to extend their phone’s data connection to a laptop or other device for up to 10GB of high-speed data; after 10GB, the mobile hotspot connection gets slowed to 3G speeds. Travelers to Canada and Mexico will also get 500 MB of 4G LTE per day during their visits. Verizon offers an unlimited HD video streaming with its plan.

It’s the most expensive unlimited plan out of the four top national carriers.

Unlimited data plans are also offered by T-Mobile and Sprint — but do not come with HD video streaming.

T-Mobile’s unlimited plan comes at $70 per month per line or $160 for four lines, and includes unlimited data, talk and text.

Sprint offers the same service at $50 per month per line or five lines at $90 per month. Both carriers include taxes and fees in their charges.

AT&T does not offer unlimited data to its wireless customers.
