Did video kill the Instagram star? Well, not necessarily. But the app which is known for photo sharing has now dabbled with video features too. Instagram is now allowing users to capture 15 second video clips, and what makes Instagram one of the best photo apps, the video will also have 15 different filters for the video.

Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram had this to say on the Instagram blog, “Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Video on Instagram and bring you another way to share your stories. When you go to take a photo on Instagram, you’ll now see a movie camera icon. Tap it to enter video mode, where you can take up to fifteen seconds of video through the Instagram camera,”

This move might be a very competitive one since Twitter is fast advancing in the video sharing capabilities. The public has yet to test the new feature and see if they like it or if it is even necessary.

Bill Gates is a smart guy, it is evident through his success and the millions of money he has made
through out the years. This is why, when the guy talks, we listen. Recently, during one of his TED talks,
he brought up the subject of having video cameras in classrooms. Not to try and catch teachers making
mistakes, not to judge students but to actually improve the quality of teaching and learning.

This is as real as it can get, having cameras will help teachers see the difference with what they think
happened and what really happened. It’s hard to put attention to every single detail when you have a lot
of people observing your every move and watching a video of how the lesson went, will give a different
perspective on what went wrong and what happened that worked out.

This process is empowering because teachers will get motivated to do a better job and make an actual
difference.

The recent Boston Marathon Bombings have taken the lives of three people and injured a bigger number. It is one of the worse tragedies that has happened in America for the past decade. It is also the most photographed scene in the history of all crime scenes. Because almost everyone owns a smart phone, or a camera phone, the people in attendance were able to capture gruesome photos and videos of the Boston Marathon.

The power of video camera was evident during the whole day because uploads on social media sites of different angles of the marathon surfaced. Is this a positive or negative thing? Do people have the power to make a difference if they are an owner of a portable camera? It may be of help, taking the Boston Marathon incident where in the authorities have asked people who were able to take photos and videos to upload files on the FBI website so it can be used in the investigation.

People over look the importance of a dash cam because it is rare to find the “need” for it in every day life. But this technology should be taken advantage off because it can easily be used to prove a person doing something against the law. Take for example Andrew Peterson, a former Saginaw officer who was caught acting inappropriately at a hotel in Fort Worth. In the video, he was yelling racial slurs at employees and guests. But even prior to that, he was already caught in another officer’s patrol car when he was arrested for public intoxication. The dash cam from the patrol car also showed Peterson acting like a lunatic threatening police officers and being violent. The embarrassing video lasted for about 30 minutes.

This is why it is necessary for people to have one. When faced in an unexpected situation and you need to prove your innocence or another party’s guilt, this one is a sure winner.

CES 2013 has been a huge success and a lot has been raving about the new products and gadgets that will be available for the public this year. Sony introduced 11 of their newest models of handycam camcorder. The eleven new models have similar features such as the ability  to shoot in both AVCHD and MP4, HDMI ports, and multi terminals, etc. Mind you, all of these are in high definition!

The simplest models that will be available in the market are models CX220, CX230, CX 290, and PJ230. All of these new models have an 8.9M/2.3M Exmor R sensor, a 29.8mm wide CZ lens, HDMI out, and 60p recording. Their best model is probably the TD30V. It is their 3D model which is taking the place of last year’s model TD20V. They have almost the same features except this one is better. How? This one is cheaper. For only $999, which is a good $500 cheaper than last year’s model. The only downgrade is there is no longer any internal memory and there is no manual control dial but these features ar e not as necessary anyway.

It sure is not easy to admit this, but we live in a world where unscrupulous people exists. Even if you have a good heart, sometimes even if you don’t deserve it bad things happen. And though you can’t necessarily avoid these things from happening, you can sure film it. Dashboard camera exists for people who spend a lot of time in their cars. It comes in handy when something fishy goes down. So many unwanted incidents occur in traffic. It can be a drunk driver, an impatient driver, a hit and run person.. all of these happen almost everyday. It sure was helpful recently when a dashboard camera was able to record how a police officer killed a parolee/man who could potentially be dangerous in Manteca. The family released the video to be able to let the people see if the killing was justifiable. There’s still no news if this video will change the case and side with the family.

 



Digital Spy Camera

Digital spy cameras have the ability to record pictures and videos digitally. The difference that they have is that you do these recordings with the absence of tapes or films; plus, it can be hidden for the purpose of security and protection. Digital spy cameras are wireless and being run by batteries. No need to use a transmitter or receiver to record videos and shoot images. Videos can be recorded within a specified time length and downloading them to your computer afterwards is so easy. Compared to wireless spy cameras, digital spy cams are smaller and they are so handy that you can take them anywhere you want to.

Consider this a warning. If you are the type of person who constantly likes to skype, facebook video chat, Google video chat or just have a laptop that has a built in webcam, there is a big possibility that you are being watched. By hackers. Yes, you read that right. It is scary and creepy but unfortunately, it’s reality. FBI Agent Justin Vellese explained that “With the Web cam comes the opportunity for people to use malicious software to control the Web cam,  There is malicious software that can turn on the Web cam, turn it off. It’s possible they can even turn off the light that indicates the Web cam is on.” This case happens everywhere around the world without our knowledge. Because not a lot of people have knowledge when it comes to these malicious malware, and how readily available on the internet. So what is the solution? Be extra careful. Make sure your firewall is always ON. When you are not using your camera, maybe cover it with a sticker/post it. This is a serious crime so spread the information to family and friends so that they are aware too.

The iPad to Mac transfer application allows you to get as save as much files as you want without having to worry about losing significant data or forgetting to backup your files as soon you upload them to your iPad. This application will save the worries and troubles of purchasing different kinds of transfer software for music, videos, and photos because you can import all of those files through this one. You are also able to export your data from the iPad to Mac, so that you can save your important files or if you need them to be backed up. The iPad to mac transfer allows you to send files back and forth to your iPad, iTunes and Mac documents, all done at the highest speed necessary for the files to be managed.

On the iPad transfer to Mac there are two file search tools (Quick Search and Filter) which can help you quickly locate all the files you need to find. This will save you time from rummaging through each file one by one. A few people can be very particular about their music, specifically the information about that specific song, artist, album, and year. Thanks to the iPad to Mac transfer application youll be able to edit all your music information so that you can easily organize your music depending on how you want it to be. Aside from being able to organize music information, you can also create playlists for your music and photos. You can add as many audio files and photos to each album without having to worry about limitations.



Advice has been given time and again on avoiding hybrid cameras if you are particular about the quality of video. The reason for this is very simple, video quality of most still digital cameras are just not that good, with even the best digital cameras often producing grainy videos.

However, the truth is that even though we love video cameras, a lot of people cannot afford to get a separate still camera and video cam. Splitting your budget to buy two dedicated cameras also doesn’t make sense because you’ll just end up with a crappy video cam and digital still cam.

If you have budget woes, like most people do, then the way to go might be to buy a point and shoot camera that has a good reputation for shooting quality videos. Sure, you can bet the videos they take will be nothing compared to those the best video cams can, but until you save up for a high-end video cam or make lots of money via FOREX trading then you can at least shoot decent videos.
