What I've seen is that you need the phone to see what you're taking a picture of. An iPod Touch will work if you don't iTalk.

If I were trying to buy a camera right now, the FZ1000 would be very high on my short list. I'm not shopping because I have so much fine gear right now. A new camera of any sort would get in the...

My problem is that Lightroom got me pumped up (again!) on photography. The AX would be my next $2000 purchase if I was not compelled to collect RAW fixed images. As much as I like shooting a...

My Osborn 1 came with Wordstar, SuperCalc, dBase and a 300 "baud" modem. It revolutionized how I got work done. Word and Excel are only marginal improvements to real work. Of course, back then, to...

Sean,

I don't mean to be rude, but, now that you have an exceptionally good camcorder, I'm going to make a couple recommendations.

First, learn the knobs, buttons and controls.

In my not so humble opinion, I'm finding winners in all of them. Differences, yes. Loosers, no. Anybody with video shooting and editing skills will be able to create stunning work with all of them.

FWIW and for the sake of sharing, my forty something son sent me a selfie taken with his brand new S5. Samsung seems to have put a pretty good camera in this phone.

I'm quoting myself to provide an update.

I bought the Joby GripTight and it barely holds the S5 in an Otterbox. This morning I got a email from Joby that they have a new "GripTight XL", that is...

For awhile, the WD TV Live Media Player was positioned to play anything and everything. It worked pretty well.

I tried a couple 4K clips today and it would not play them.

It showed up in my Vimeo feed at 6 am on the Oregon coast! I've watched it twice already. I'm impressed.
