Canon PowerShot SX400 IS
October 08, 2014
The Canon PowerShot SX400 IS ($249.99) packs a long 30x zoom lens into a compact body, but its 16-megapixel CCD image sensor captures photos with quite a bit of noise and its no-frills design lacks modern features like Wi-Fi. If you absolutely must have this type of zoom range, we recommend stretching your budget and buying our Editors' Choice Nikon Coolpix S9700. If you feel comfortable sacrificing some telephoto reach, the 18x Canon PowerShot SX600 HS is a better camerawith some extra features built-in. Design and Features The SX400 IS measures 2.7 by 4.1 by 3.1 inches (HWD) and weighs 11 ounces. Its design is very plain, especially if you pick up the all-black version of the camera. Canon also offers it in red with black accents. It's not the smallest 30x camera on the market; Canon's own SX700 HS (2.6 by 4.4 by 1.4 inches, 9.5 ounces) is slimmer, but is priced $100 higher and doesn't have as deep of a handgrip as the SX400.

Underground Construction
September 01, 2014
  [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]           There's no doubt that the success of any underground installation project depends on critical information provided drill operators by locating systems. The ability of the operator to successfully navigate the planned drill path by knowing precisely where the drill bit is located --and where it is heading--is made possible by locators. Horizontal directional drilling (HDD), in fact, owes part of its name and much of its distinction, to locating equipment. Since drill operators cannot see the position or heading of the tooling, without the assistance of locating systems a drill operator could only hope the machine's tooling will reach the intended target destination accurately. Simply stated, without locators, there would be no directional in HDD and absent locating systems, HDD would simply not exist today.         "The development of a surface verification method was the catalyst for HDD's amazing growth," says John English, founder and president of Horizontal Technology, based in Hockley, TX. "Knowing precisely where a drill bit is located and where it is heading is the foundation for HDD's success."       Matching systems to jobs         As the world's underground utility infrastructure has grown and become more crowded, documentation and accurate mapping of the location of individual water, sewer, gas and electrical lines has become even more critical.
