BitTorrent Shares Results of Sync Speed Test

BitTorrent have published the results of their own speed test in which they pitted their Sync file hosting/sharing/synchronisation tool against rivals such as Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. "Sync is fast and it gets its speed from the BitTorrent protocol on which it is built, taking the shortest and fastest path when getting file pieces from one device to another," the company says. "We knew we were fast, but we thought it would be interesting to see just how fast Sync is in head-to-head competition. So we ran a test comparing Sync against cloud-based services in the market... The results impressed even us." In BitTorrent's own testing, Sync proved to be 8x faster than Google Drive, 11x faster than OneDrive and 16x faster than Dropbox. To find out more about the test methodology and results, head to the website below.

Canon EOS C100 Mark II

Canon today announced the Canon EOS C100 Mark II digital video camera. Designed for economical film and video productions such as documentary and remote broadcast crews, wedding and event coverage, indie film productions, as well as film schools and business and government users, the new EOS C100 Mark II Digital Video Camera features advanced image processing, AVCHD and MP4 1920x1080/60p recording, uncompressed YCbCr output from HDMI, and many other new and enhanced capabilities for improved picture quality, operability, and convenient handling. Weighing in at 2.5 pounds, the Canon EOS C100 Mark II boasts a Super 35mm 8.3 megapixel CMOS imager, a large-size detachable eyecup, a 68-degree tilting 0.45-inch 1.23 megapixel electronic viewfinder and an innovatively hinged 3.5-inch 1.23 megapixel OLED display panel. The new hinge design ─ which folds the panel shut when stowed, protecting the OLED surface ─ opens 180 degrees to reveal function keys and a joystick. The panel can open even further to 270 degrees to deploy against the side of the camera to provide monitoring for directors and other production personnel. Additional design improvements on the camera body include 17 assignable recessed function buttons, dual SD card slots with a transparent cover, and a simplified battery insertion and removal release. The Canon EOS C100 Mark II is scheduled to be available at the end of December 2014 for an estimated retail price of $5,499.
