Flip Video Ultra HD video review

Flip Video Ultra HD video review


What better way to give you a look at Flip Video's new Ultra HD camcorder than by reviewing it on video... shot with the Ultra HD. The specs are simple: 720p / 30 FPS, 8GB of storage on-board, HDMI out, and pretty much nothing else. Still, a camera this cheap ($199.99) and this small definitely has its uses. Of course, you'll probably be distracted (like we were) by the bad, bad image stabilization issues. But don't just read about it -- take a look at the gallery below to scope out what the thing looks like, then watch the videos after the break to hear (and see) our thoughts, and catch the cam in some heavier -- shakier -- action. Needless to say, both videos are available in HD.



Update: The videos should now be working properly. Sorry about that guys!



Update 2: Apparently YouTube is sucking right now and hasn't finished encoding the HD version of the review video, even though we upped about five hours ago. Awesome.

PhaseOne P40+ medium format camera hits the streets of Copenhagen

PhaseOne P40+ medium format camera hits the streets of Copenhagen



It's been a few moments since Phase One had us lusting after one of its devices, and now the company is back with a 40 megapixel system named, appropriately enough, the P40+. Like the P65+ we peeped last year, this new guy offers two separate image-capture modes -- in this case, you're looking at either a standard mode for full 40 megapixel shooting, or a 10 megapixel Sensor+ mode that gives you a four-fold increase in light sensitivity (ISO to 3200), and a 1.8 fps capture rate. Both modes feature a 12.5 f-stop dynamic range. The camera is shipping now, and it will run you a cool €16,990 ($22,073). Or pick up just the camera back for €14,990 ($19,475). Actually, you might want to think about picking up two. You know, just in case. One more image after the break.

Samsung intros drop-dead gorgeous SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 camcorders

Samsung intros drop-dead gorgeous SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 camcorders



We knew Samsung had a good thing going with the HMX-R10, and sure enough, that stylish has rubbed off heavily on the company's newest pair. The MX-C14 and SMX-C10 are both 'ergonomic' camcorders which boast the company's Touch of Color finish and the practically iconic Active Angle Lens. Specs wise, we're told that they include a 10x optical zoomer, Hyper Image Stabilization (oxymoron much?) and a 230,000-dot, swiveling 2.7-inch wide LCD screen. Strangely (and inexcusably, really), Sammy failed to mention what resolution these capture at, so we could be looking at two 4K RED competitors or VGA shooters that can't even outdo those uninspiring offerings from DXG. At any rate, we're told that the C14 comes with 16GB of internal flash along with an SD / SDHC expansion slot, while the C10 gets by with just a slot. Finally, both units include one-touch YouTube uploads and just under three hours of life on a single charge; they'll splash down this July for undisclosed amounts.

Genius G-Shot HD520 camcorder does 720p for $149

Genius G-Shot HD520 camcorder does 720p for $149



It's been about a day after forever ago since we've seen a new camcorder from Genius, but if you're scouting a low-end, low-cost option that'll still capture clips at a halfway respectable resolution, you're in luck. Similar to many of the DXG offerings, the G-Shot HD520 provides 720p footage for under $150, and it can also capture 11 megapixel still shots when things slow down a bit. The six-ounce device records in MPEG-4 / H.264 format and features a 2.5-inch LCD and room for up to 8GB of storage -- you know, in case you fill up the 32MB that are included, which will probably never happen. It's available now from a smorgasbord of legitimate online retailers.

Flip Video Ultra HD makes its unofficial debut, gets unboxed

Flip Video Ultra HD makes its unofficial debut, gets unboxed



Thanks Best Buy, we owe you (another) one. Yet again, the big box retailer everyone loves to hate has provided the world with a glimpse of a heretofore unannounced product, and this one's got our mouths all kinds of damp. Barely a month after Cisco picked up Pure Digital for a small fortune, the Flip Video Ultra HD -- which seems to be the natural successor to the standard Ultra -- has already begun to hit select store shelves in America. Notable niceties include an HDMI output, 120 minutes of record time (up from 60 minutes), a removable / rechargeable battery and support for AA cells in a pinch. We're still waiting for the full rundown of specifications (and the price, too), but feel free to tap the read link for a stellar unboxing in the meanwhile.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 gets unboxed, takes some test shots



Wow, it's been a great day for camera nerds -- the Nikon D5000 got a ship date, the Canon Rebel T1i started arriving in stores, and now the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1's been unboxed. That's a hat trick of hotly-anticipated DSLRs* right there, and the GH1 might be the most anticipated of the bunch. Sadly for would-be importers, the Japanese version here can't be set to display English menus, but we can still gawk at the pretty pictures, including an amazing shot of the lens cap entitled 'The Engadget Product Photo Effect.' Hit the read link for the full set, including some test shots.

*Yes, we know GH1's not technically a DSLR -- what would you call it?<

VholdR Helmet Offers Wearable HD Camcorder


High Definition (HD) technology is getting more and more pervasive these days, culminating in the VholdR ContourHD helmet which is touted to be the first HD wearable camcorder in the world.

New iPhone App: Bands streaming theirs songs directly to you

If you're a Presidents of the United States of America fan, you can now listen to the band's entire discography for a mere $3, but not through the iTunes Store. Fire up your iPhone and grab it from the App Store instead; the band has bypassed the record label bureaucracy and released everything on its own.

What's a good way to release your entire back catalog of music to a large audience without having to deal with the bureaucratic red tape of the record labels and the iTunes Store? Release it yourself through the App Store, of course. The album-as-an-iPhone-app method has been experimented with by some bands already, but the Presidents of the United States of America (yes, the guys behind the "Peaches" song) have gone all out, selling its entire discography through the App Store in hopes of engaging fans in ways they couldn't through the iTunes Store alone.

The app, called "The Presidents' Music - PUSA," sells for $2.99 on the App Store (iTunes link) offers users access to four full albums, including the band's early "lost" recordings. This includes the previously-unavailable FroggyStyle—"unless you have one of the 500 cassettes the band sold in 1994, you've never heard this before," reads the app description. The app also features a number of extras and exclusives that the band says are updated regularly, and fans can read the band's blog directly from the app on their iPhones or iPod touches.

iPhone 4G Concepts and Fakes

After DigTimes announced that Apple had possibly ordered 100 million new 8GB NAND flash chips, the iPhone community has been buzzing about what Apple plans to do with these new chips.

Apple has most likely placed the order for a newer iPhone or iPod touch to be coming into the market some where in June or July of 2009. So what's the new iPhone going to look like? We've put together a small list of possible answers with a iPhone commercial spoof at the end.

1. iPhone with video chat. This was a very anticipated feature for 2.0 although it never came.by Rodolphe Desmare

2. iPhone Elite features a better camera and a slide out QWERTY keyboard.

3. An amazing clear iPhone design but it probably won't happen.

Skype's Warning to Jailbreakers

Skype, the highly popular Voip over wi-fi app, just got an update to version 1.0.1. This version adds an extra warning to jailbroken and future jailbreakers. When you open the app for the first time, a Warning notice will pop up saying
Warning
This version of Skype is only supported on unmodified versions of OS iPod 2.2.

This warning was probably put there because jailbroken users were complaining to Skype about MobileSubstrate's frequent crashing. But now that Saurik has confirmed that the problem is fixed, there shouldn't be any more problems with a jailbroken iPod/iPhone and Skype.

Free iPhone Apps Get Deleted After First Download

Free iPhone apps could be a thing of the past as smart phone users abandon them after the first download. A recent study unveils that 30 percent of mobile phone users retire non-pay applications after the first install.

Free iPhone apps could be a thing of the past as smart phone users abandon them after the first download. A recent study unveils that 30 percent of mobile phone users retire non-pay applications after the first install.

Apple iPhone applications can be freely downloaded or purchased by Apple Inc's App Store online. However, a new study suggests that only 30 percent of users who fetch new applications usually vacate them after the first install. It is a trend that is quite troubling for developers who make free software for the smart phone.

“Paid applications generally retain their users longer than free applications, although the drop-off is still pretty steep,” a Pinch Media spokesperson said.

Throughout the RIM BlackBerry Storm vs Apple iPhone debate, most people supported one phone over the other based solely on the number of free applications available for the device. While both mobile phones do offer an online store to retrieve free and paid applications, smart phone users should base their choice on the quality and usability of the mobile device and not its app store.

Free iPhone apps are retired after the first install.

Pinch Media also said, “Users stop using the average applications pretty quickly. Long-term audience are generally one percent of total downloads.” The study is quite astonishing and could mark what the future holds for free iPhone applications.

Billionth Download Made from iPhone App Store

The person who made the billionth download will get about $13,000 in prizes

Despite how some consumers feel about Apple products, few will argue that Apple has some of the most desirable products and best product marketing on the planet. Apple has dominated the mobile music player market and is now conquering the smartphone market with its iPhone.

To go along with the iPhone, Apple launched its App Store last year that provided third-party applications for the handset ranging from video games to productivity apps. The App Store was a raging success from the start with over $30 million in sales during its first full month of operation.

This week Apple announced that the billionth download had been made from the App Store. A contest was running as the countdown to one billion downloads ran and the contest is now over. The one-billionth download was made yesterday by an unnamed user. Apple says that it will announce who made the billionth download soon.

The person who made the record setting download stands to get a serious gift package including $10,000 in iTunes credit, a 17-inch MacBook Pro, a 32GB iPod touch and a Time Capsule backup system. Apple says that in all it will give away $13,000 in prizes for the contest. All App downloader's were automatically entered into the contest.

iPhone Web Usage Continues to Rise — Even On T-Mobile’s Network

Image Credit: AdMob

Image Credit: AdMob

AdMob shares its monthly smartphone data today, and the numbers provide some deeper insight into trends we’ve seen recently. I was sure that the Android Marketplace’s relatively slow pace would weigh down the growth rate of T-Mobile’s G1, but as they say: the numbers don’t lie. Even more surprising is how well Apple’s iPhone is doing on T-Mobile’s network when the carrier doesn’t even offer it for sale. Bear in mind that the data is limited to smartphone requests made to web sites and apps that serve AdMob advertising, so the information is only a proxy representation of the market. However, the company served up an impressive 7.6 billion ad impressions in March, which is certainly not a small number.

Marketing iPhone Apps - The 101 Way!

Since two people I know are now professional iPhone developers, I’ve taken a bit of a closer look at the app store, the iPhone and the marketing of your app. There are a few things which I find interesting;

1) Its essentially a walled garden, distribution is exclusively through the app store, so Apple owns the customer contact.

2) First mover advantage was important. If you could get there first with an OK app in front of many rabid Mac fans you were guaranteed of making some money.

3) There is a real problem with the pricing model (if you’re a developer). in order to get into the top sellers bracket people try to get as many sales as possible, so developers keep their prices real low ($0.99). This is a doubled edged sword that you need to decrease your price to make sales, but then the revenues don’t actually mean much. Unfortunately you have to sell a lot of content in order to keep yourself happy with that.

4) It’s a groundbreaking device; it can tell where you are, connect to the internet, do crazy things associated with motion. This opens up the scope considerably wrt development.

22 Ways to Make Your iPhone a Better Camera

The iPhone's biggest weakness is its 2-megapixel camera. Not to worry, though—we've put together a whopping 22 tips and apps to help you get the most out of Apple's underpowered shooter.

One of the few disappointments in the Apple iPhone is its camera. It's just 2 megapixels, has no video capability, and performs poorly in low light and with moving subjects. Add to the list of missing features zoom, burst mode, timer, and white balance. You could argue that the camera's very simplicity is a virtue, but we here at PCMag always want more from our technology products, not less. Luckily, there are apps that address most of these issues, and some picture-taking techniques that also can help you mitigate the iPhone camera's shortcomings.
Even if you are waiting for an iPhone that has a 3.2 or 5MP camera, the tips and apps that follow will come in handy for improving your image collection on Apple's handheld marvel. As always, click the links below to get to the full reviews of the apps. Note that this is in no way intended to be an exhaustive list of all the photography-related iPhone apps. There are many more out there, and we're going to keep reviewing them. Did we miss your favorite? Got an awful one you want to warn iPhone photogs about? Let us know in the discussion for this article.

iPhone App makes time lapse photography easy


iPhone TimeLapse Test from digitalurban on Vimeo.

Here's a fun application. TimeLapse [App Store link] uses your iPhone's camera to take photos at regular intervals. You can have one photo snapped as infrequently as every 24 hours, or as often as every 10 seconds, which is about as fast as it can snap and store a photo. After you've collected all of your photos (I told it to stop after 300), you can easily dump them into iMovie or QuickTime Pro and make a simple time lapse movie. Neat!
