108 Happy New Year! 2011 Now with Video?

Happy New Year everyone! I have been talking about branching out into video for a while and here is my first shot at it. If you like it let me know. I didn’t do anything fancy yet, I didn’t even use my green screen. If you like it, I will start posting the audio ( as usual) AND video for the show starting in January. So comment away! I am not an actor but I promise to get better in front of the camera. Really I do!

BTW… my parents always said I had a face for radio. 😉

Nikon P100 price cant be beat for features offered

NIKON P100 Camera thoughts.

So, looking for a new Camera cant decide between Nikon or Canon?  Even though I prefer Canon over Nikon, which is just a personal choice  really. no harm no foul. There does seem like recently like there has been a lot of searches for Nikon P100. If you are new to reading this the Nikon P100 is new and pretty cool. I touched a little bit on it  in Episode 58 when is was being unveiled. If you are looking for a great entry level consumer camera the Nikon P100 cant really be beat. You will be getting some cool features that up until recently you could not get without spending a lot more cash.

The Nikon P100 comes with some very cool specs.
