WELCO
Winter is not the traditional time for a metamorphosis. But
you eagle-eyed readers (and Stuff readers are proudly so)
will have noticed we've been transforming ourselves over
the last few issues. It reflects a broader transition in what was
once called the information and communication industries
(ICT), but is now so much more. In the last few years, sales of personal
computers (PCs) have slowed, while smartphones and tablets have
soared. Smartphones over took PC sales about two years ago; and did
the same to feature phones this year. This has prompted many early
obituaries proclaiming "the death of the PC". But that misses the point:
the PC isn’t dead, it's just evolved. It's now a smartphone or a tablet.
And the ecosystem involved has transformed too.
We're aiming to reflect that in Stuff. We've introduced a projects
section (p85) to show you how to reawesomise your kit, perfect your
home network and sharing via it and upgrade other kit.
We still do our thorough tests of new kit, like compact cameras
(p62) , top Android smartphones Samsung's Galaxy S4 vs HTC's
One vs Sony Xperia Z (p72) and more compact tablets (p64).
The Cool List (p40) is an annual feature you'll start seeing, listing, as
it says, the things we think rock. This includes those Google Glasses
I'm wearing, which belong to Ushahidi's Erik Hersman, who brought
them to Stuff Towers for us to play with. Enjoy the read. And let us
know what you think of the changes.

ATE
UPD
After its success in resurrecting the PEN brand, it was inevitable Olympus would
emblazon the legendary OM moniker across its first compact system camera with
a viewfinder. And boy, does it live up to the name. This is a CSC with pro aspirations:
astoundingly fast AF, 9fps burst shooting, an excellent EVF, weatherproof body,
tons of controls and superb 16MP pics right through to ISO 25,600. Best of all is the
Live Time mode for a live view of long exposures. It’s well-priced these days too.
The best compact system
camera so far, boasting
super-fast autofocus and
great advanced features

(w/12-50mm lens)
Canon EOS 650D
2
Our favourite DSLR contains a hybrid 18MP CMOS sensor that enables continuous
autofocus during video recording, a responsive touchscreen and 5fps burst shooting.
The 700D is out soon, but it’s not a massive upgrade, so the 650D remains a good bet.
3
Pro power has never come at such a reasonable price. A full-frame 24.3MP sensor
combines with accurate 39-point autofocus for stunning results. Dual SD card slots,
built-in flash and 5.5fps shooting speed complete a seriously powerful proposition.
Nikon D600
Sony NEX-7
4
A host of manual photo and video controls are available via its gorgeously minimalist
unmarked knobs, but it’s the exceptional quality of its 24.3MP images that really
impresses. We suspect that an updated model may be just around the corner, though.
5
Improvements over our old favourite the D5000 are a vari-angle screen that’s
grown to 3in, 1080p video recording and a 16.2MP chip sensitive up to ISO 6400.
Its sensor is amazing in low light, serving up punchy stills and hi-def video.
6
The Canon 60D is a DSLR camera aimed at the serious amateur: a ruggedly built,
feature-stuffed snapper that counts full 1080p video among its charms. An all-round
great choice for the Canon user looking to step up from the entry-level models.
Nikon D5100
Canon EOS 60D

7
Canon’s cheapest ever full-framer is an awesome little SLR with a few clever tricks up its
lens. As well as its all-new 20.2MP sensor, it boasts a GPS receiver for geotagging your
pics and Wi-Fi for direct uploading or remote control from an iPhone or Android device.
8
This Sony is super-capable, with continuous shooting speeds of up to 12fps, a 24MP
sensor, rugged body and an absolutely stunning electronic viewfinder. Despite the A77’s
SLR-ish looks, it has to make do with a digital eye viewfinder rather than an optical one.
9
Canon’s turned up fashionably late to the mirrorless interchangeable-lens party - but
superbly dressed. The M is like a small EOS 650D, easy to operate, with an 18MP APS-C
hybrid CMOS sensor, DIGIC 5 processing, a fast shutter and ISO extendable to 25600.
10
Like its D3100 predecessor, the D3200 has an excellent photography-course-in-acamera Guide mode, although that’s no longer the star attraction. This entry-level DSLR
has a very non-entry-level 24MP sensor capable of producing truly professional results.

The world’s best TV? No question. The 55in F8000 has the best picture, the
smartest features, the biggest sound and the most innovative controls of any telly
out there. This is a TV you’ll never tire of watching, which is just as well, because
there’s plenty to watch on it: Freeview, Freesat and all the riches of the revamped
Smart Hub, complete with Netflix, LoveFilm, iPlayer and more. Other highlights
include the TiVo-style S-Recommendation tool and the Touch remote. Superb.
Samsung UA55ES8000R
2
Samsung’s stunning 8000-series 55in/140cm LED TV range is available in four models,
46- through 65-inch (117 to 165cm) and all are excellent. As well as great 2D and 3D the
Smart dashboard can be controlled through voice or gesture. Pricey, but superb picture.
3
With seven pairs of 3D specs in the box – two of which allow for full-screen gaming –
this passive 3D TV is great for social occasions. It’s just been updated with the Game
World portal, featuring 2D and 3D games – some playable with LG’s Magic Remote.
LG 47LM9600
Samsung UA55ES6200R
4
The 3D upscaler and HyperReal image processing engine now have more horsepower to
produce a better picture, it has both wifi and wired LAN and there’s 3D glasses thrown in.
A quality buy at the price.
5
While not the very latest incarnation, outperforms most other sets in this class. It’s a
safe buy; there’s wifi and wired LAN, no corners cut and with the superb build quality
you’ll get great performance for the longer term. Great price, but no 3D glasses.
6
The strong picture quality and no-fuss, passive 3D are matched by great styling, minimal
brushed metal finishes and an “almost gone” 5mm bezel. Wifi and LAN, 4 pairs of
glasses, dual fiull screen gaming, Magic remote and Smart dash come standard.
7
Surprisingly for this price range LG has cut no corners. Picture quality is welll above
average then there’s LG’s passive Cinema 3D, smart dashboard for downloading apps
and wired and wireless networking and a bevy of HDMI and USB ports.

pairing great picture quality with smart connectivity.
Samsung 32ES5600
It’s definitely trailing in the high spec TV race, but as a second screen for your guest room,
garage or kitchen you won’t be embarrassed by this full HD picture, the 100Hz motion
smoothing and video capable USB port panel.
Sony KDL-24EX430
It’s small but potent with the full HD image quality capabilities of it’s much bigger siblings
in this range. With a reasonably slim profile its the perfect size for the kitchen or

“So we need someone to play
this 6’5” action hero… how
about guarantee of box office

’ol Mr Scientology’s modest

of a hard-hitting performance.

An overly life-affirming tale,
told through the medium
of overabundant CGI. Yes, it’s
a technical masterpiece, but
overall the film suffers from a
long runtime and somewhat
saggy pace. Those metaphors
about spirituality and morality
are also rammed down your
throat slightly too far.

Perfect is weirder than Glee

always an entertaining romp.

You get the feeling Sony put everything they know about sound into these headphones,
cutting no corners and sparing no expense. The result is an audiophile’s delight: a “true”,
but still exciting sound across all music genre. Pricey and too big to lug around.

Luxuriantly finished in soft leather these high-end Sennheisers are designed to be out

the airport, the signature uncompromised sound quality is now always at hand.
Sony XBA3
They’re not cheap but they are, quite simply the best sounding in-ear phones you can get.
Balanced Armature technology means there’s dedicated high, mid and bass frequency
drivers, and standard one-driver earbud models aren’t even on the same playing field.
Skullcandy Navigator
In this first headset sporting Skullcandy’s own Rex 40mm drivers emphasis has shifted
away from making a brash personal fashion statement towards sound quality. They’re a
practical size and weight, they’re extremely comfortable and they sound fantastic.

The unusual design of these phones extends from odd-shaped memory-foam buds to
a combination of both dynamic and balanced armature drivers, but the neutral sound is
perfect for music purists. The package includes a bunch of neat accessories.

These well-padded on-ear cans deliver a good dose of bass and frenetic highs that

gratuitously oversized competitors.

It’s past time for Apple to upgrade its standard buds and this thoughtful re-design is right

Kurt Vile’s mumbling, slacker
