Photographers are very particular about their equipment and the merits of each individual make and model. We put a Nikon D800 up against a Canon 5D Mk III to see what were the differences and advantages.
Google joins the cloud storage game, the Samsung Android devices that will update to Ice Cream Sandwich, and a tour through Trey Ratcliff's photo album!
Come hang with some of Austin's best photogs as they case out the Capitol for great photos. And later that night some of these same members of the Austin Photography Meetup group joined Trey Ratcliff and Lotus Carroll for a photowalk at the 37th Street Christmas lights area.
A dozen or so Austin photographers in the Austin Photography Meetup group did a photowalk around and inside the Texas State Capitol on Saturday, December 10, 2011 just before the Google+ Austin Photowalk with Trey Ratcliff and Lotus Carroll later that evening. Many of the same photogs attended both events.
This is part deux of the Austin photo walk, don't miss part 1 with Trey Ratcliff showing how he sets up an high def, saturated color photo shot. See his viewfinder!
Meet Lotus Carroll, co-organizer and major presence on Google+ About 100+ Google+ photography Circlers met right in the middle of the famous 37th Street Christmas Display on Saturday evening, December 10, 2011. All levels were welcome - beginners and beyond... they brought their kids, family, and this sort of thing... it was a very friendly event where socializing was on a par with techness. You can find more videos like this one by search for "springnet" everywhere video is served (iTunes, youtube, blip.tv, and on your set top box like Roku, Boxee, or TiVo)
Peppers designed to be perfect as poppers, Microsoft brings OneNote to the iPhone, 100 photo filters from Trey Ratcliff, Nintendo tells us when we can start playing their new #DS system, and wall sockets are growing USB ports!
CES 2010 coverage continues with even MORE moxie gadget news from this past week's CES. Wow, what a week this has been, a dream come true. I shot this episode in Geekbrief.tv's studio while also livestreaming about the end of CES with Cali Lewis. Neal and Cali are dear friends of mine who produce and host the most watched tech podcast in the world. In episode 120, I talked about the 4 major moxie announcements from CES 2010 and in this episode, we show you even more tech goodness. For you car lovers, we have the coolest news in the world and I have to give Ford a huge high five. MyFord Touch is going to revolutionize cars for the next few years to come and Ford MyTouch is literally merging the PC, the smart phone, the ultimate media player, GPS and HD Radio in their cars! Looking for a beautiful, easy to carry and mobile HD TV with a beautiful LCD screen? Look no further - Vizio launches their first US mobile TV (Vizio Razor LEDs) - beautiful specs and a really cool feature that makes these gadgets a MUST HAVE in my opinion. It's the perfect HDTV that you can carry in your pocket or purse! During my other livestream with Cali Lewis this past Wednesday, we talked about Skype's big announcement at CES 2010 and how it has reached the stratosphere in news. Skyping from your own HDTV will bring livestreaming to your living room or anywhere you have an HDTV. We show you how you can Skype from your own HDTV or buy a new HDTV that already has Skype embedded. Last but not least, in non-CES news, Apple has reportedly ordered hundreds of thousands of LED flashes that most experts believe will be used in the next gen iPhones and iPod Touches. We all know one of the iPhone's biggest drawbacks is the inability to take great photos in low light or dark situations, so this should be a good addition to the new iPhone! I want to say THANK YOU again to both Cali Lewis and Neal Campbell for being such gracious hosts to me this week. I had a blast livestreaming with them and I'll be forever grateful for allowing me to tape this episode in their beautiful and very professional studio. We had a blast.

The iPhone 3G and 2G finally has a legit iPhone app in the App Store that allows you to record video! It's not as good (quality) as the 3GS video, but if you've been wanting a video recorder in your current non 3GS iPhone, this is the app you need. So glad the App Store finally approved it - check out my homemade vids I made with this new app. Also, Microsoft's very popular search engine, Bing****, has branched out and created their very own iPhone Bing App. It has voice activated commands for BROWSING the internet, voice commands for interactive maps and several other features (image search, etc) that Google's iPhone App does not have. It's a free download in the App Store. In other tech news, McDonald's announces they will no longer charge for WiFi access in their restaurants so that the "Starbucks coffee crowd" will go to McD's and surf the web while sipping on McCafe's rather than spend more money at Starbucks. Do you think this move will help McD's or will it still just be a fast food restaurant with free WiFi? Last but not least, the coolest, moxiest iPhone/iPod speaker dock - look at this beautiful and fairly inexpensive gadget - it has beautiful sound, moxie design and allows you to horizontally place your iPhone/iPod so you can watch videos while getting awesome sound.

Casio's Exilim cameras shoot high speed video. There are three, ranging from $299 to $999. They're the EX-F1, the EX-FH20 and the EX-FS10. The reason these are so cool is what you can do with them. Take a look at Trey Ratcliff's Stuck in Motion technique. Trey is the guy who shoots the pictures we use as backgrounds. If your dad loves Battlestar Galactica, consider getting him the Battlestar Galactica LED Toaster. There are only 2,000 of them and it has a Cylon on one side with "Frak Off" on the other. It's $63. If you think your father might want some distraction from every day life, or a really good challenge, the Bucky Balls are a great stocking stuffer. I have the Neo Cubes. Oregon Scientific has a wireless talking thermometer that will tell you when the meat's done on the grill. An HD TiVo is a great gift. Having all his TV and web shows together will be a great thing!
