Hmm… The current version of Polaris Office 5 does not seem to support cloud service such as Google Docs, Dropbox and Box.net yet. Hopefully, future version will support it soon.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens was introduced back in June 1993. It is an old lens but many photographers still like it included me. It is sharp, light, and fast. It contains two high-refraction lens elements and one Gaussian optics. It becomes 80mm equivalent with attach to 1.6x crop SLR camera with APS-C sensor like Canon EOS 400D Digital or his brother Canon EOS 40D Digital. It is a wonderful portrait lens.

Magic Lantern has changed the world of Canon EOS 5D Mark III – the ability to record 14-bit RAW video. And that also push the limit of CompactFlash card. You need a very fast CF card in order to capture 1080p RAW video. So what is the best CF card for 5D3? Is 128GB Lexar Professional 1066x CompactFlash Card the one?

Yes, you can enable DTS codec support on MX Player. It is working on my Nexus 7 (2013) perfectly. However, DTS audio is not working on my Galaxy S4 with the latest version of MX Player even with custom codec loaded. Not sure why… Anyway, Kodi 14.0 Helix media player comes to rescue. Kodi is XBMC actually. Yup, it has a new name. And loaded with new features like capable of playing back h.265 (also known as HEVC) and VP9 video codecs. However, decoding of h.265 is entirely software based for the moment. So it won’t work well on Android and iOS devices with low processing power. But should work fine on powerful PC system.

Yeah… Kodi is working great with my newly added DLNA media server. I am streaming most of media from local NAS now. However, I still prefer MX Player as it is much user friendly on mobile devices. But Kodi stays on Galaxy S4 due to DTS audio codec support.
