Check out Michael's review of his new Chinon Bellami HD-1 video camera.

The camera is a full HD digital video camera, except that it looks like an "old-school" Super 8 film camera.  Aside from its novel looks and feel, the camera gives you much more manual control than you get with your smartphone.  The camera has detachable lenses that allow you to change the look of your footage, full focus and apature control, a 1/3-inch, 2.12 mega pixels MOS image sensor and shoots in full 1920 x 1080 HD. The camera operates on two AA batteries and is compatable with many accessories with a hot shoe on top and a tripod plate hole on the bottom.  This camera not only looks cool, but has all the functionality you could want from a digital video camrea. 

Check out more details and buy from Chinon's website.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
