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.
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.
Back in the day when art was simple and separate from the whims of technology and science, every creation was made with the genius and skill of an artist. It was the age of pure talent, where a masterpiece done on the canvass is dependent on the power of the mind to use the accurate stroke of hands, and eyes that are keen to color and hue. As art and science grew closer together in the passing of time, devices, gadgets, and certain software are now used to render creations that could be reached by the average human imagination. Paintbrushes and canvasses back then are now best DSLR cameras and high-grade photo papers, still having the same purpose of showing the wonder of art to anyone who sees it.
Why are people into buying expensive models and best DSLR cameras for their artwork? This is because the more pricey the hardware is, the more pictures and better quality it can create for the person who utilizes pictures and edits it in software to produce superior results. The elements of using it, is still the same. The power of the mind projects how a picture should look like and how it should be edited while the hands control both the captured angle and the focus of the camera to the subject. After using both things, the hands also act on putting details and finalizing touches whether on the board or on the particular image editing program. After everything is completed, it is now printed for everyone to see the finished product.
The latest of the new generation of camcorders now use solid state video storage mainly due to huge advances in the capacity of solid state memory. Allowing memory capacity in the gigabyte level it does make these previously bulky gadgets quite light and handy.
They can come in packages as small as cellular phones with equal capacity for still capture. Advances in CMOS technology also allows better picture quality with some even capable of shooting in low light conditions using infra-red illumination with a single LED. It does make everything look green though but it does allow good video even in pitch black conditions.
There are several models of hybrid camcorders as they are called that have entered the market, having both solid state and DVD recorders built into them for recording media. Several use mini-DVD disks that are capable of storing 4 Gigabytes of information or in video terms around 30 minutes.
Disks on the other hand come in double sided that offers an hour of video allowing half our on each side. The memory slot allows the capture of stills without having to carry a separate camera which for general shots is quite decent at 5 megapixels. The DVD drive is quite sensitive to dust and must be loaded/unloaded with care to prevent the miniature dvd drive contained within.
Are you a camera person? Bought a handycam recently but do not know how to operate it? Follow the instructions in your manual. If not, grab your mouse and check the other user’s opinions or product specifications online:
Example: Sony Handycam
Now, let’s find out what the Editor’s review (Lori Grunin) was about this product:
With its sub-$1,000 street price, HD video support, hard-disk-based recording, and Sony provenance, the Handycam HDR-SR5 certainly seems like a bargain. Mostly, however, the SR5 simply confirms my belief that decent HD video will still run you more than $1,000. (But spending another $300 or so to upgrade from the 40GB SR5 to the 100GB SR5C, doesn’t count.) Click here to continue….
