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.

For comparison, I checked on some Canon Products at the web , since I know that it is also a good and trusted brand. I wanted a camcorder for beginners, since it is just for personal use. Canon DVD and MiniDV digital camcorders offers the best when it comes to it’s performance and features. It is said to have easy operational directions that you can follow in capturing that special moment. I find Canon’s site so user friendly because their products are viewed at once, then you just have to click the product of your choice too see it’s specifications and features. The VIXIA HF -100 is a good product to date
Many consumers usually ask this question when buying or searching for a video camera. The higher the pixel, as they say the better. Picture Element or Pixels are made up of hundreds of thousands of tiny dots of light that is arranged in grid. The greater the number the pixel, the images are more clearer and vivid. Of course, the file is much heavier too. With a more advanced pixel, you’ll be able to capture also the realistic colors, may it be a night or moving shot. However, when picking a camera, constantly inquire the number of effective pixels that the camera can grasp instead of the overall number of pixels.
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
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.
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 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.
