IPad Video Converter

The iPad is one of the hottest gadgets that has been released this year. As soon as the market made it available for purchase, thousands of people wanted to make sure they got a hand on this amazing gadget. It is five times the size of an iTouch, which means it five times as much fun to use. No need to squint your eyes over the small text or worry about mistyping words due to the small font. This item is a good buy and continues to get great reviews from its purchasers.

One of the few flaws about this gadget is that the videos you want to watch on the iPad usually aren’t suitable to be viewed. That is why 4Media has come up with an iPad Video Converter, which decodes and encodes all types of videos into its highest definition. If you want to convert any video that is in MPEG, Divx, or even AVI to iPad MP4, this will be an easy task to accomplish thanks to this program.

This iPad converter is also able to change videos and audios to iPad audio files which can be easily accessible as soon as they are converted. Another amazing feature this program has is the ability to create a video, suitable for the iPad, based from the pictures you have in your photo library. So if you want to make a video montage of your pictures, you can do so with all the features needed to create an edited movie.

Of Lenses and Filters

Lenses and filters are available for a myriad of applications for DSLR camera owners. They have the same function as professional cameras of days gone by, only smarter. With built in auto focus motors and more precise parts, they do get better pictures compared to point and shoot cameras.
It can however be a pitfall for DSLR camera owners who do spend tons of money on equipment so for basic shots and hassle free pictures Point and Shoot cameras maybe better for you. Investing in equipment you may not always use is a waste and who wants to carry a lot of camera equipment for a hard earned vacation.

Tips for First Time Users of DigiCams (Part 1)

Here are things you need to know outright when using a digital camera:

– Enter the date or time (if this is the first time you will use your digicam or if the batteries have been dead for a long time already. It will be easier to organize, find and identify your images.

– Learn what the icons mean. Check the camera settings on the control panel and viewfinder. The number of pictures you can shoot will depend on your settings and status of battery change.

– Remember, if you are storing an image and you turn off your camera, the image will continue to be saved before your camera fully shuts down.

– Generally, shutter buttons have two stages. Press your camera halfway down–the camera will set a focus and exposure. When you are ready to capture your picture, press the button the rest of the way. With some cameras, you can press the button all the way. A delay will occur before the picture is captured, in order for it to focus.

– See if the camera has a diopter adjustment that will make it sharper, if you notice that the view finder is blurry.

Shooting Fast Action

actionshotsMost digital cameras have a setting that sets the shutter to a faster speed to capture active events such as sports and many others. This is similar to the ability of analog camera’s to get sharp and crisp images without the blur, adjusting the shutter speed and aperture size as desired. The digital system makes this all easy for the ranging system determines the distance through an infra-red beam, adjusts the optimum lens position, to attain maximum efficiency, a split second as you push the button.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom

 

It has been said in the past that the smartphones are the new digital cameras. It is evident that smartphones will soon replace digicams and the new Samsung Galaxy s4 zoom is proof of that. This phone is equipped with an impressive 16 megapixels and 10x optical zoom lens. Making it the first of any smartphone available in the market with this kind of feature.

The makers of Samsung is exceeding the user’s expectations.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom has 4.3-inch 960 x 540 Super AMOLED display, it also has 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz. The front facing camera has 1.9 megapixel.

The price for this new smartphone is yet to be announced. The release in the US and in Europe will be towards the fourth quarter and will be available in the UK this summer.

Video Problems

 

Digital cameras are great for taking photos. It’s amazing how one person without any background knowledge on photography can come up with beautiful photos with the use of a tiny camera. It is perfect for taking still shots but what it lacks in awesomeness is recording videos.

Videos take up a great amount of space and most digital cameras have limited amount. Transferring videos to a computer can be slow and creating a DVD ca also be a problem. Recording videos on a digital camera is a secondary feature, an added bonus per say. A digicam also has no microphone that will allow for the video that will prevent picking up unnecessary noises in the background.

When it comes to recording videos, it is still better to use a standard camcorder. It is easier to edit videos and make a DVD with one. Though digicams are cheap, it still will not give the best results for video recording

Types Of Digital Camera

Choosing the right camera for you is tricky, there are numerous manufacturers and hundreds of different models so when you step out there, it will be a huge confusion when you find yourself inside a store. So before you get out there, you need to do some research first.

There are three types of digital cameras. The first one is the point and shoot digital camera

A point and shoot digital camera is the cheapest you can get in the market. It is also called the compact camera. These are more advanced version of a camera phone where you point to the thing you want to capture, and shoot. It’s very easy to use and it’s small and light, convenient to take anywhere. It has a lot of features and will automatically be set into the best features when in use

Semi Professional Digital camera looks very much like a point and shoot but with higher resolution. It also gives the photographer a bit more freedom when it comes to creativity with photos.

Digital SLR is the highest quality digital camera. It gives the photographer complete control over the outcome of the photos. It is ideal for professional photographers because handling one needs to be learned.
