Behind the scenes I’ve been searching for a job opportunities and work. Well I found two jobs. One working for a realty company and the other may become paying as a social media intern to eventual consultant. They both stole my morning so I have to speak on Pinterest later. However, I just started using it and it’s kinda nifty. Pinterest post soon! Have a good day.
Imagine having a camera that can easily plug and play with any device that has a usb port. That’s the Sony Bloggie. But is it a good camera? What do I think of it? Here is the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Sony Bloggie.
What’s good about the Bloggie? This camera can take high definition pictures quite easily. The Bloggie’s simple design only has 7 buttons. There is a button that takes the pictures, one for video, and one for power. The other 4 are on the touch screen. Mostly, the touch screen deals with options and your gallery. Bloggie records 1920×1080 hd mp4 video files and up to 12 mega pixel digital pictures. How do I look up there?
What’s bad about the Bloggie? There is no flash functionality. You wont get different camera modes for taking a specific style of pictures. And inside the camera itself is a usb prong which is excellent and very convenient. Unfortunately, the Bloggie software annoying and invasive. I suggest against the program it wants to install. There aren’t any options that help with the footage. Mostly the options revolved around size of picture or video.
What’s ugly about the Bloggie? As cameras go, the Bloggie has one flaw many photographers probably try to avoid. It’s horribly light sensitive. Because it’s a travel sized hand camera you can bring it everywhere. But in certain light, the pictures and videos look muddy dark or off in some other light-based way. In one sense it’s a testament to the camera since it’s very accurate. Look at my buddy in that low light! Regardless, since there is no flash, if the setting isn’t well lit you’re out of luck.
On a whole I really enjoy my new camera. It’s easy to use. The pictures are clear and the videos have great quality. It’s majorly depressing knowing I have to plan out my photos. It’s not just a random party camera to that end. However, using it for videos on here will definitely work. The moral here is, make sure you do your research before you buy the camera. I got lucky!
My weekend is full of friends and fun so I’m preparing myself. I have to talk with a few of them about starting a web show. Id like to have more ways to entertain and discuss topics on my blog with you. And some of my group is pretty nutty, especially in front of a camera. I really believe videos are a great form of media. The format of the site may change soon because of this. Regardless, I’ll continue to write/search for interesting content for you. You just go off and enjoy your weekend. Make sure you come back Monday though!
I’m fairly certain that half of you have another half of you to squeeze and love today. Just remember to come back tomorrow for something awesome. Technology doesn’t sleep! I’m about to go by Walgreens now to get a mess of chocolate for my Girly. I have a feeling she may enjoy that. Happy Valentine’s’ Day!
Have you ever thought to yourself or with a friend “who would win in a fight?” And then you both proceed to put two super heroes or characters up against one another. Usually, especially at a comic shop, this results in a loud debate between friends. Death Battle does this and then shows you the fight. What you’ll particularly find fascinating are the depths they go analyzing the talents, tactics, equipment, and powers of the combatants. It’s awesome.
Let the geek fights begin!
While working at a game store recently I was reintroduced to an old love. Super Nintendo and it’s myriad of titles in their rectanglish shape. Welling deep within me was this nostalgic feeling for the retro games I used to know. It bought me back to my childhood and here is one of the first memories of gaming I have.
When the Super Nintendo first entered our house on Christmas the only game my Uncle and I had was Super Mario World. I want to say we passed the controller back and forth like brothers. But I honestly doubt that. What I do remember quite clearly is watching and playing the game all day long. My grandma would bring food so we remembered to eat. And I surfaced maybe once.
The Snes had entered my house and life was good. Nevertheless, that might not illustrate my point to maximum effect. I am a more hardcore gamer at heart. I’ll play a game 8 hours straight trying to learn as a whole why it’s awesome. There are many who cant or don enjoy such long play sessions. However, I started out doing things that way since that Christmas. Someone thank my uncle for me!
What is so powerful about nostalgia that makes it such a driving force? Do you have a piece of technology that’s nostalgic for you? It could have been something small that helped shape who you are today. Please leave a comment below and if you liked this post click that follow box down there too. I’ll catch you tomorrow!
I was reading some of my older posts, making edits and the like when I noticed something interesting. I don’t think I ever wrote about cameras. Not a once in any major way in any post. So, that needs to change. I’ve been a closet shutterbug since I was old enough to properly handle a traditional camera. Which raises the question, “do you think standard cameras are digital now?”
Digital cameras are the best thing ever when it comes to photography and accessibility. I wont lie. I just bought a very inexpensive Bloggie and it was a great purchase. With this device I can take pictures and videos on a whim. There isn’t a hassle. More importantly, sharing files between machines is easy since the Bloggie has a built in USB. It’s hard for a traditional camera to compete in this respect.
Regardless, digital cameras have their flaws too obviously. They don’t always have easy to understand features or controls. Sometimes they can’t handle certain light situations. Bloggie for instance doesn’t have the best picture quality in darker lighting. And while some of my pictures are very focused, I’ve dealt with my fair share of weird fuzzy pixel pictures already.
Alternatively the traditional film filled camera isn’t always my favorite. It can be a pain to put film in, batteries in, and do general maintenance. Although, while it’s a bit more cumbersome the experience can be more rewarding in my opinion. You know it’s a hard question and I can’t decide.
On the one hand, you most likely love the accessibility of a digital camera. And on the other hand I bet plenty of you know the joys of the darkroom. Please comment on the bottom and let me know which style of camera is your favorite. I’m eager to see which of you enjoys what! Is the traditional camera lacking or lucid?
