sony-action-cam-mini.jpgThe way I see it, there are two solid reasons why someone would pick up a point of view camera like the Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1VR. One, you’re doing something that involves speed or intense action like heading down a ski hill, mountain bike trail, or even doing something like jumping out of a plane. Or two, if you’re like me, you want to use it for both reason #1 and for following your kids onto the ski hill. For those reasons and more, the Sony Action Cam HDR-AZ1VR, the smallest, splash-proof action cam available, fits the bill and more.


Gear up and hit the hill with the Sony ActionCam

sony-action-cam1.jpgI was pretty excited to test out the Sony ActionCam With LiveView Remote, and if you watch point of view action sports videos on Youtube the way most of my family does, you’ll instantly know exactly what this camera is for. Designed specifically to capture live action video in all the crazy places you’d go to for action sports and recreation, the Sony ActionCam has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a camera of this type. It was created for the ski hill, it shines on the side of a mountain, and you can take it with you while you hang ten on a wave near a tropic beach.


Review : Singing in the rain with the Sony Xperia Z!

The Sony Xperia Z is a water-resistant Android smartphone running on the 4G/LTE network. It can play HD movies in 1080p on its big 5-inch screen. You can also pair it to other devices like wireless speakers, TV sets or any other NFC-compatible accessory.


Add a powerful 13 megapixel camera with HDR photo and video on top of that and you’ve got a pretty decent phone at a very low price!

Sony NEX #7.jpgSony is about to release their newest Compact System Camera (CSC), the Sony NEX-3N, which is aimed at compact camera users that would like better image quality without the bulk and complexity of a DSLR. Sony has kept the high quality of its' predecessor, the NEX-F3, and made some excellent improvements like a retractable power zoom lens with an easy-to-use zoom lever on the camera body. They have also managed to make it even smaller so it is now the smallest CSC in the market. So if you are thinking of getting a compact point-and-shoot camera, but you want better picture quality and flexibility, this camera is a great choice.

Grey-Cup.jpgThis coming Sunday, November 25, marks a very exciting day in Canadian sporting history – the 100th Grey Cup Game! While we Canadians have often been criticized for our fickle ways when it comes to supporting our local sports teams through thick and thin, this weekend is sure to bring both sides of the continent together in patriotic unity – complete with chili, touques, and beer – when the Calgary Stampeders take on the host Toronto Argonauts; the third meeting between the two teams for the Grey Cup championship, and the first since the 79th Grey Cup in 1991. 


High-End Compact Camera Comparisons - Travel with Ease!

Camera Comparisons.pngWhen traveling it is nice to take some great looking pictures without having to lug around the bigger DSLR type of camera. Fortunately, there are some excellent compact cameras that will fit into your pocket and take high quality point-and-shoot pictures.



When I researched higher-end compact travel cameras I had some minimum requirements.  They needed to be over 10 megapixels, have great zoom capabilities (15X or more), a re-chargeable lithium ion battery so they would last on the road, a variety of scene modes like panorama, image stabilization, HD video capabilities, and low-light capabilities for taking pictures at night. I found at least 5 brand-name cameras that fit these criteria, and then I took a few steps further in comparing their detailed features.
