Sony HandyCam HXR-NX30u Production Camera – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSI use the pro-sumer version of the Sony Handycam HXRNX30u in getting interviews for Geekazine. When I heard there was a broadcast level version, I was intrigued. Adding sound options and more made this the next camera on my list. The Sony Handcam HXR series came out in 2011. Their current version – the HXR-NX30u – brings high definition in a small footprint. Add the Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology and you can be holding this in your hand and still get a pretty stable shot. This is because the camera eye moves to keep the shake from happening. Get the Sony HXR-NX30u at B&H For example, I have done some time-lapses in Las Vegas with an older camera. Whether you are in a building or on a bridge you know that after watching the footage there is some shaking or swaying that happens. Using the...

It’s the End of the DVD As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS Subscribe: iTunes | RSSThat’s great, it started with video tapes, movies in the home at 8, Lenny Bruce is still not afraid. I remember when we got our first VCR. It was a Betamax and we had some of the coolest movies. Of course, the Beta went the way of the do do bird. Then it was VHS. Come and almost gone. Now it’s the DVDs turn. Earlier in the year the big question was “Who was going to replace DVD’s: HD DVD or Blu-Ray?” Now we know that answer – but does it matter? Blu-Ray players really haven’t been selling like hotcakes and if you have one, you know that it’s not the fastest thing on the planet. The ultimate irony is that Sony owned Beta and lost to VHS. Now Sony won with Blu-Ray, but will that only be a small win...

2008 Predictions in Technology by techpodcast members 3

2008 Predictions in Technology by techpodcast members

“Don’t Tase me, Bro.” is being heralded as the top quote of 2007. Who would have guessed that? Well, some tried to in early 2007. Predicting the future is not just a psychics’ job. Then again, we are not predicting – we are analyzing – Seeing trends in the last year to determine what is coming out next year. I went through some of the predictions of 2007. Some were dead on. Social Networking and Apple devices seemed to top the list in this subject. Other predictions – well, not so much. Now we are fast approaching 2008. There is a lot of technology that was debuted in 2007 and since they are still in their infant stages, we will see them ramp into tools that change the way we compute. 2007 was also a year of rethinking. Going Green is one of the ways we rethought things....

2007 – the Retrospect 0

2007 – the Retrospect

Everyone puts them out; the best – and worst – of 2007, all in one article. And Geekazine is no different. However, we’re taking a slightly different approach. It’s more of a look back to see what has happened in the last year and maybe some hints for what should be done in 2008. Gets you wondering what items you lived without a year ago and what you can’t live without today. So without further ado…. Let’s start with the beginning of the year. It was good. PS3 came out in the console wars, and it was predicted that it will win out of the 3 game systems. That still has to happen. SSD was introduced at CES, and it was tech that is long overdue. The static drives can reduce heat, battery consumption and wait times loading the machine. The technology is slowly coming down to earth...

Unlocked iPhones, EeePC, Total HD, Smartphone Security 11-26-07

T-Mobile has turned the tables in Germany by unlocking iPhones so the users can choose which service to use. This was to counter a restraining order by rival Vodaphone. But was that the best idea and more importantly, will that happen anywhere else? Let’s answer the second part first. Don’t expect this to happen anywhere else. And also don’t expect to get a German iPhone shipped to you – unless you are willing to head to Germany and pay $1500 for it.
