A Bikini Life

A Bikini Life: "A Bikini Life
Beautiful,yummy women in gorgeous tight bikinis. I love em. A lot.
Sunday, August 20, 2006 Kei Akiyama - Bottoms up!

I love the way this girl plays it for the photographer: half of these shots of taken with her glorious booty facing the camera. She's fleshy and I love her skin tone.. milky, peachy and so nice to chomp on. In a way, Kei is comparable to my favourite Jyuri Takahashi in terms of butt-up bikini style sets while her opulent flesh reminds me of Filipina sexpot Christine Mendoza. These lovely pictures are scanned from her XTC photobook."

HDV for Everyone

HDV for Everyone: "HDV for Everyone
Canon's new HV10 camcorder captures 1080 HDV video for under $1,500
By Frank Moldstad

The age of Hi Def home movies for the average person has arrived. Barely a week after announcing a pair of new professional HD camcorders [see story here], Canon dropped the other shoe by unveiling the HV10, a palm-sized camcorder that shoots true 1080 HDV video.
“This is the smallest, lightest and least expensive high-definition camera on the market,” says Jon Sagud, video consultant for Canon’s Consumer Imaging Group Video Division. “In its performance category, let’s say under-$2,000 high-definition cameras, it's the only camera to employ a true-to-spec 1920x1080 high-definition image.”
The HV10 carries a suggested retail price of $1,499, but those who are more economy-minded can opt instead for Canon’s other new offering, the DC22 (MSRP $799), a DVD-based camera that records directly to three-inch DVD-R/-RW discs. It, too, is able to capture 16x9 images, although not at the full 1920x1080 resolution of the HV10

Four Affordable HD Camcorders Compared

DV - Features: "Four Affordable HD Camcorders Compared, Episode 2

Click To Enlarge

Following filmmaker Barry Green's tests on Canon's HL X1, JVC's GY-HD100, Panasonic's AG-HVX200, and Sony's HVR-Z1 in Burbank, California, (featured on DV.com as 'Four Affordable HD Camcorders Compared'), Chris Hurd of dvinfo.net, Mike Curtis of hdforindies.com, and I arranged a four-day test near Austin. We explored the same four cameras more thoroughly, recording to their native formats, using test charts and static scenes, dynamic motion, indoor and outdoor setups, and location work. We also went handheld, to roughly evaluate the cameras for run 'n' gun work. We shot some scenes using the high-end Panasonic AJ-HDC27H VariCam as a reference, and took the opportunity to get a first look at the new Sony PDW-F350 XDCAM HD camcorder."

There was a lot of buzz about Blu-ray versus HD DVD at CES, but neither could declare a victory

At this year�s CES there was an awful lot of talk and debate about the two new high definition DVD formats that are scheduled to hit the markets this spring. The Blu-ray Disc Association and HD-DVD Promotion Group both made sure that their members were properly promoted. Most of the big consumer electronic companies at the show were either talking about or showing off their players, recorders, software, or blank media. But for every diehard Blue-ray or HD-DVD company there were also companies supporting both formats."

By Greg Scoblete -- TWICE, 8/9/2006 6:16:00 AM

Melville, N.Y. � Nikon announced the second generation of its consumer-level digital SLR today, packing the camera with technologies from its professional SLRs and also adding a few features from its point-and-shoots as well.
The 10-megapixel D80 is a successor to the company�s first consumer-level d-SLR, the D70. It offers a burst mode of 3 frames per second (fps) up to 100 JPEG normal images. It boasts a start-up time of 0.18 seconds and a shutter lag of 80 milliseconds.

New to the D80 is an 11-area auto-focus system, a new image-processing chip inherited from the company�s professional SLRs, an �Optimize image� menu for adjusting creative color controls while shooting, built-in i-TTL flash control with the ability to control up to two remote groups of Speedlights, as well as over 32 custom settings.
The D80 is also Nikon�s first SLR to use SD memory instead of Compact Flash to achieve a smaller form factor than the D70. "

one Super 8 mm cartridge

KODAK: Super 8 mm: "One Classic Mini, one Super 8 mm cartridge, no editing, no kidding!

Have you ever been to a film festival where no one, not even the filmmakers, had seen the films? That's the idea behind Straight 8. The rules are simple, each filmmaker gets a single cartridge of Super 8 mm film to make his or her three-minute project, which is then handed back, undeveloped and unedited, along with a three-minute soundtrack on CD.
Paul Beard was not intimidated by the prospect of viewing his film in front of a packed theater, he was inspired to create a film about something he loved � His Mini."

Super 8 mm Success Stories

KODAK: Super 8 mm: "Super 8 mm Success Stories"

Persistence leads to super duper results.

We recently interviewed Canadian filmmaker Justin Lovell to learn more about his film Stuntman. During our interview we were fascinated to learn about his success with tweaking the Super 8 mm film format to create the perfect format for his artistic vision. This is a great story about someone who kept digging for new ideas and new ways to portray his vision. Read on and enjoy. "

KODAK: Super 8 mm Film History

KODAK: Super 8 mm Film History: "Super 8 mm Film History

The story of practical 'home movies' began in 1923. Although 35mm film had been the standard for theatrical releases for decades, the large film was cumbersome, expensive, and dangerous due to its flammable nature.
For years, the Eastman Kodak Company had worked to develop a system of movie equipment and film that would be easy enough for the advanced amateur photographer to use, yet reasonably affordable. The result was the Sixteen Millimeter 'Cine Kodak' Camera and the Kodascope Projector'. The camera itself weighed about seven pounds, and had to be handcranked at two turns per second during filming. A tripod was included in the package, all of which cost a whopping $335.00! And this in a time when a new Ford automobile could be purchased for $550.00. "

by Tim Carroll

Got a chance to play with the Arriflex 416 this past week at NAB and talk with Klemens Kehrer, the 416's design engineer and Marc Shipman-Mueller, its product manager. Here's what I found out.
ARRI began work on the camera in late 2004 because of the resurgence in Super 16. The indicators were; increased sales of the SR3 Advanced cameras, increased footage sales of Kodak Vision2 16mm film stock, the scarcity of camera rental stock as the cameras were continuously rented out, the introduction of the new Cooke and Canon lenses, the refinement of the DI process allowing Super 16 capture and 35mm release, and the leap forward in film scanning brought about by the introduction of the Spirit telecine and the ARRISCAN."
