SpinLight 360 Modular Flash System Demo'ed at PhotoPlus Expo [VIDEO]

Here’s another video from the floor of the PDN PhotoPlus Expo in NYC in 2012. This one is a demonstration of the modular camera flash system, the SpinLight 360. As with the previous demonstration video from this show that I had recently posted, it had been delayed for release due to the ongoing recovery efforts after Superstorm Sandy here. The video was shot entirely with an iPhone 4 using the AR-4i (which I’ve concluded it doesn’t get along well with iOS 7 from my experience here now shooting the intro for the demo).

Star Wars: Tiny Death Star Now in App Store

Being a fan of Star Wars and Nimblebit games such as Pocket Planes, Tiny Tower, and recently Pocket Trains, I was curious about their joint collaboration with LucasArts/Disney for their new title, Star Wars: Tiny Death Star. The game is now available in the App Store for free — though like many of Nimblebit titles, you can make in-app purchases for “Bux” to speed your progress of the game. The game is not under the Nimblebit name as the developer, but instead, LucasArts. 

I was surprised and perhaps slightly disappointed that it is essentially a re-dressing of the existing title, Tiny Tower just with a Star Wars theme and Star Wars style missions. That said, if you are already familiar with Tiny Tower, you will feel right at home with this new game. There are some new and different elements to it and of course, you may appreciate it on another level if you’re a Star Wars fan.

I Voted and Big Brother Knows It!

There are times when I don't like photography.

Today is Election Day and I voted as I do each year. I went to my polling center around 4:45 pm (trying to beat the rush that comes at 5pm when people leave work, I suspect others had the same idea as it was very crowded for an “off year”). 

Though earlier in the day I received one of those annoying robo-calls as everyone seems to get during the election season urging you to vote for or against someone or some ballot measure. This one was a bit alarming because it is suggesting that it knew I hadn’t voted yet. 

Is Big Brother watching you on Election Day? Play the AudioBoo I recorded about it below to see… err… hear what I mean.

LEDGO CN-B150 LED Camera Light Demo'ed at PhotoPlus Expo [VIDEO]

Ice Camera, Baby

Just days before Superstorm Sandy hit us and caused so much devastation here, there was the PDN PhotoPlus Expo in NYC. I was there covering the expo and shot some video with the iPhone 4 in conjunction with the Fostex AR-4i which I reviewed a year or so ago (I will be reposting that review here soon). Because of Sandy and the long recovery process that followed it, I was only able to post a music video style highlights video I made of the show shortly before the storm hit. There were a couple products which I shot demonstrations of at the show which were never edited and posted. This is one of them now.
