One of the small generation of video recorders from Kodak, it is small and suited for use in all weather. Shaped like a mobile phone, it uses SD/SDHC memory cards for data storage which can go up to 10 hours of 720p HD video. It can record video in bright light as well as low light though some improvement may be needed in the audio recording due to dismal performance. Some reviews also found the lowlight video recording abilities a bit too exaggerated. The device is well suited for teens and their irresponsible ways, being weatherproof and small enough to fit in most pockets, they can withstand quite a lot of abuse. They can use 2 standard high-capacity double AA alkaline cells but for constant use, a good pair of rechargables(or more, ) would do better for those whole days of fun out on in the sun. Full Story »

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
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, weâ€™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, youâ€™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.
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.
When buying a digital video camera, it is necessary to understand all the features that a model offers. A strong selling point of this equipment is the zoom capabilities. A novice videographer should then be familiar with the difference between optical zoom and digital zoom.
Optical zoom is the actual reach of the cameraâ€™s lens. It actually moves you closer to the object you are taking a shot of. On the other hand, digital zoom brings the shot from a wide perspective to a more focused one.
For sharper images, optical zoom capability should be taken more into account over digital zoom.
Video cams were an ubiquitous electronic product in many homes years ago, most especially if that home is inhabited by a young family because itâ€™s the time when parents would love to take videos of their children for posterity. But are we seeing the end of the videocam?
With digital video functions in various mobile devices getting better and better in quality are video cams on the demise? New digital video cams like the Flip video gadgets offer HD quality video at a fraction of the price. Even the small iPod Nano now sports a camera that takes very passable videos. This may be a sign that there is an unstoppable shift to these devices as far as common consumers go.
