A Pocket Size Camcorder Captures Your Video Movie Memories

The pocket size camcorder market was invented a couple of years back when Flip Video created their revolutionary Flip Mino pocket video camera.

Flip Video’s innovation was to roll available technology (digital video, SD flash cards and USB connectors) into an attractive point and shoot camcorder with a fixed lens. It was no bigger than a cell phone.

Wind forward to today and there are now numerous pocket camcorder models available. Here’s just some of the ways people are using pocket camcorders at home, work and play.

Pocket Size Camcorder Video Memories

You can preserve family memories as video movies not still photographs:

* Baby’s first steps

* Learning to ride a bike

* Sports day

As a pocket camcorder is so small and light weight you can take it everywhere and use it anytime. Most models also double as still digital cameras with a resolution of around 8 mega pixels or better. And many (but not all) have a built in flash.

There’s no need to wait for family gathering to share a video. You can post your video, for private viewing, at a video sharing site, like Vimeo or YouTube. Of course, you can also make your movie public to the world for those fifteen minutes of fame.

Making A Pocket Video Camera Work For You

Since these pocket size camcorder are light in weight and easy to use, why not jazz up work presentations or a dull corporate website with video clips. You might:

* Relieve PowerPoint boredom with a video clip

* Record a brain storming session for future reference

* Record a testimonial

* Make video resume

A pocket camcorder is ideal for vacation video snapping

Being small and feather light, a pocket camcorder is ideal for stowing in hand luggage to make a living record of your holiday. Now, there are even pocket video cameras that can go underwater.

Shoot a few video clips and you have postcards that move and talk. Use the video editing software bundled with many pocket size camcorders to make video movies.

What’s the best pocket camcorder?

Here’s what to look for in a camcorder with pocket ability:

* Optical zoom (it’s smoother than digital)

* Shoot high definition video at the full 1080p standard

* Still camera facility at 5MP or better with flash

* AVI & HDMI cables for ordinary & HD-ready TV

The Flip video range is still number one for ease of use and seamless integration with both Windows and Mac PCs. But the Flip Mino HD and Flip Ultra HD are strictly point and shoot video cameras, they don’t have all the desirable capabilities listed above.

The pocket size camcorder market now has offerings from Aiptek, Creative, JVC, Kodak, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and Veho. Consider the pocket video cameras offered by Aiptek, Toshiba and Veho. They may not have the street credibility of Flip, but they do offer superior pocket camcorders at around half the cost of a Flip video camera

In conclusion a pocket camcorders deliver:

* A feather weight, simple to operate video camera

* You can take one anywhere to record video memories

* Most take still photographs, too

* Video is now easy to edit on PC or Mac

* And easy to incorporate into PowerPoint and websites

Finally, you can share pocket size camcorder video on PC, TV or at a video sharing site.

The Future Of 3D Animations – How It Is Used In Videos, Movies And Media

You may wonder of the unique aspects computer generated graphics bring through modern technology. With the innovations of information technology becoming more commonplace, the success of 3D animation continues. From those realistic figures to overwhelming landscapes such as computer generated cities, you can imagine the power that 3D Animation brings you.

This form of technology works from three important focuses: 3D modeling, layout and animation, and rendering. As these three steps work together, the product truly provides a unique design to the eye, making it art in motion through high-end technology.

3D animation roots from the modeling where the skeletal framework step occurs. You may notice your favorite video game character or perhaps movie character having proportions and designs that really give them that natural flow. This is the importance of modeling in 3D animation: it provides the sense of anatomical precision or even practical correctness as you engage in the graphics of this stage. Without proper 3D modeling, your 3D animation will lack functionality!

Once the model is ready and functional, the next important aspect to obtain that beautiful output is the natural layout and animation step. Regarded as an important asset to your 3D animation, you need to evaluate the spatial factor and the integration of your models in a given environment. Understanding the dynamics of Physics with the interaction forces will help you visualize and even realize the model in an environment once you layout them. When you combine these together, your layout and animation will really bring out the interaction between your models.

Of course, 3D animation cannot be completed unless you proper rendering is administered. This involves quality image generation. This naturally entails your 3D model provided the necessary elements such as lighting and other fine tuning to finalize your 3D model. With the different components in motion, rendering gives your model the quality it deserves to appeal to your desired audience. Rendering is regarded to be an important “make-or-break” step because the design will decide if your animation is appreciated or not.

As 3D animation becomes more prominent in the video game and movie industry, you will enjoy the details that bring out the quality and style you desire. As a forerunner in its industry, 3D animation creatively brings out a positive outlook in graphical appreciation and application. With these in mind, 3D animation continues to obtain its unique success. The future has become present as technology continues to progress.
