Indie filmakers rejoice! Panasonic's AG-AF101 takes on DSLRs

IBO is a globally-important video and content creation show held in Amsterdam each year. It’s where trends emerge and this year it delivered irrefutable proof that the advent of Digital SLRs such as Canon's 5D Mk II has influenced the design of the video camera. The biggest benefit of the huge DSLR sensor is the narrow native depth of field that allows the videographer to isolate a subject. It’s the control which film and TV creatives want, and has seen the 5D spawn an entire industry of gear which turns the still camera into a ripping video camera – in just two years. So successful has the DSLR become as a full-frame video camera, that manufacturers are responding with cameras that take all the DSLR's strengths and add in the features videographers want and/or need. The belle of the ball is undoubtedly Panasonic's EUR 5000 (US$6500) AG-AF101, so Gizmag's Noel McKeegan went to see what all the fuss was about.
The Canon 5D Mark II turned video on its head in 2008 with its ability to shoot beautiful shallow depth, cinematic style footage in 1080p resolution at a fraction of the price (and size) of a production camera rig.
It hit the headlines when used to shoot the TV series House, it's being used to shoot entire feature films and a raft of accessories and software mods (including Canon firmware upgrades) have swarmed to improve the 5D's performance as a video camera.
The secret of the 5D is the size of its CMOS image sensor which offers full frame shooting – the 36 mm x 24 mm, 5616 x 3744 has beautiful low light characteristics and the camera shoots in 24p, offering the look and depth of field of a 35mm movie camera, at a fraction of the cost and in a lightweight, very portable unit by comparison.
The 5D has shown us what great video a big sensor can make, but it's not a video camera. All the bits wrapped around it are designed for taking still photos.
This gives rise to a number of audio, focusing and control issues which make it very difficult for particularly video professionals to work with. The normal controls on a video camera are not all there. For example there's no peaking or zebra functions, no video style eye-piece and no built in ND filtering. Some ingenious third party solutions plus some crude kludges have been found to skirt around most of these issues, but some of the fixes – like ND filters or add-on optical viewfinders – don't come cheap.

Panasonic AG-AF101

Canon perhaps hadn’t realized how quickly the competition would recognize the trend, and prepare MUCH better competitors targeted at the indie film-maker market.
Panasonic is first to the plate with its AG-AF101 due out in December. This camera, of which a 70% complete prototype was on display at IBC, offers a big sensor and normal video controls, so it can be expected to significantly slow the 5D Mk II Canon’s momentum.
The AG-AF101 uses a micro-four thirds lens mount and a 4/3-inch, 16:9 MOS imager. There are some quite inexpensive, high quality 4/3 lenses on the market and a mount adapter can be used for almost any 35 mm lens including those from Canon and Nikon.
We may be witnessing the final democratization of the film industry with dedicated video cameras that cost several orders of magnitude less than the systems they are replacing.
The AF101 records 1080/60i, 50i, 30p, 25p and 24p (native) and 720/60p, 50p, 30p, 25p and 24p (native) in AVCHD’s highest-quality PH mode (24Mbps).
It’s the sort of wish list that had made many a 5D fan cry. It can be run at 60Hz or 50Hz so it is relevant everywhere on planet earth and it has time code recording (glory be). Instead of ignoring audio, the AF101 has a built-in stereo microphone recording two-channels of 48-kHz/16-bit digital audio with two XLR inputs with +48V Phantom Power. It has HD-SDI output, built-in ND filtering and overcomes all of the 5D’s moirĂ© and aliasing issues.
With its two SD slots, the AF101 can record up to 12 hours on two 64GB SDXC cards in PH mode or 48 hours in HE mode ... a 4GB file limit means the Canon 5D spits its dummy at roughly 12 minutes of continuous recording – quite some improvement.
All at a price and in a package that – while not quite as small as a high-end DSLR – will no doubt have independent filmakers scrambling.
Sony also showed a prototype of a "more affordable" 35 mm camera at IBC that will be aiming at a similar market when it's released next year.

Also write a press release and use a press release submission service to spread the word about your new product. Do not forget to check your competitors and look to create a product that is the best in its category.

Make driving easy- join driving classes

The car insurance is the biggest expense one bears after the purchase of the car. For the beginners the expenditure incurred on the insurance of the vehicle would be more than the cost of a new vehicle. No one can even think of buying a cheap insurance for his costly car, the best option to overcome this hurdles is to learn to drive the car.

For the teenagers if they want to learn driving they should switch to The choosylearners are the best in providing driving lessons. The main advantage to learn to drive is the expertise of the company in making the driver to learn driving. The driving course includes every aspect of driving like from shifting of gears to checking of the oil level and change of flat tyres. They teach all the technical aspects involved in the driving like management in intersections and driving the car in the traffic. The expert tutors of choosylearners cover all the laws related to driving and cover the responsibilities which are attached with.

Good driver should be able to focus on driving the car safely in all weather conditions and should be aware of the unsafe activities like talking on the cell phone while driving which should be avoided while driving the car. A good tutor also teaches what should be done and how and how much to accelerate the car to control it if the car slips or due to over speeding or any condition the car starts spinning.

The other important issue that is covered while teaching the person how to drive the car is how to keep the vehicle in good condition and shape and condition and how it helps to avoid the dangers while driving the car preventing the harm of self and other drivers. The first lesson is to avoid any type of the accident but the drivers should also know how to tackle with the condition if by mistake there is a miss happening or an accident on the road.

The driving instructors also teach the students to follow the right attitude towards driving safely; the drivers are taught that they can't follow an irresponsible attitude towards driving and they even can't afford to become grandiloquent or overconfident as it may put the life of self and others in danger.

Few tips which would for sure help in increasing the expertise in driving:

1 Fasten up the seat belts- Before the starting of learn to drive one must keep the point in the top most priority that he fastens up the seat belt before accelerating the vehicle.

2 Follow the speed limit- it is an annoying job to follow the prescribed speed limit if one is getting late to reach the target. But one most important thing one should keep in mind if someone is accelerating at a great speed then he will have to de-accelerate at the same pace resulting an average of just 5 to 10 minutes of time gap to reach the target if one accelerates at the speed limit.

Five Drivers Of Change!

The huge Tsunami that hammered the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia in 2004 gave no warning.

Many were on the beaches and casually going about their day unaware that a deep sea earthquake
had sent a shockwave that sent billions of tons of water racing toward the shores of the Indian Ocean
at 500 MPH.

It was too late when those on the beach looked up and saw the wave that was so large that they had
no time to escape. There was no warning.

We are facing a Tsunami of Change of even greater proportions in business. The drivers of change are
forcing business leaders and individuals to rethink their strategic plans.

At Tri-Vision Global, we have been working on some projects related to
strategic business development. This has forced us to think long-term. The data on the changes that are
about to break onto the shore of the business world will create massive changes in the business environment.

These changes can have a disastrous impact on your business; or, they can create gigantic opportunities.

Here is the short list of five major drivers of change in today's business environment.

Changing Marketplace Trends

1) Entrepreneurial Workforce

45 million Americans own a business. That is 20% of the workforce. Americans are now entrepreneurial in
their career perspective. They are more mobile and likely to change jobs or careers rapidly based on their
circumstances and individual motivating factors. Loyalty to employers is minimal. Consider the cost associated
with searching, screening, hiring, training and supporting an individual before ever realizing any return on
investment from that person in their job function. Ask any CFO or senior human resource manager and they
can tell you exactly how this issue impacts the bottom-line.

2) The Internet Age

The changes occurring in the way people live as a result of the Internet is only beginning. In most domains
of human activity, massive paradigm shifts are being generated by this disruptive technology. 80% of all
purchases in the U.S. start with an Internet search! The democratization of the music, film, and broadcasting
industries is allowing both producers and consumers of content to bypass media centers to get what they want.

Major producers of big ticket products are scrambling to devise Internet strategies. Web developers are working
overtime to meet the demands of rapidly changing business models.

3) Baby Boomer Exodus

The most notable pressure is the retirement exodus of the Baby Boomer generation. This group represents over
seventy million people in the American workforce today that are entering retirement age between now and 2015.
For some job classifications, over 50% of the work force is expected to retire within the next twelve months! While
skills can be taught, the life experience of someone who has spent years in an industry or company and weathered
multiple business cycles and market shifts isn't knowledge that is easily replaced or transferred. This will result in a
huge deficit in skilled workers, wage inflation, and diminishing productivity.

4) Workforce Retention

Another catalytic trend emerging is the concept of "blending" one's professional and personal life. Americans by
far put in more hours on the job than any other industrialized nation. The next generations of workers are much more
interested in balanced living between their careers and personal interest, thereby challenging employers to think
more holistically in developing their human resources strategies. You can only automate and outsource to a certain
degree. Eventually, all organizations succeed or fail based on the quality of their people. In the twenty-first century
people are interested in significance and lifestyle. Knowing what workers want and need will become even more
important in the years ahead. This challenges organizations to seriously consider their employee hiring, development
and retention strategies especially as the pool of talent becomes shallower.

"People are the greatest asset to any organization"

5) Globalization and competition

Here in the West, we seldom practice the art of long-term thinking. Everything is about how fast we can make things
happen. We focus on short term gains that can allow us to flip to the next bigger better deal. However that isn't how
our global competitors think. China, India and others are becoming economic super powers because their strategic
thinking is fifty years or more down the road.

Japan's Toyota Motor Company is arguably the biggest automotive manufacturer in the world. That didn't just happen
in the last few years, it was part of the vision they cast over forty years ago and they have stayed the course.

The companies that prepare themselves for the changes coming regarding these five trends will be positioned to take
advantage of them better than their competition. Change management can no longer be reactive and passive, dealing
with problems of change as they are required. Business leaders must learn to be to proactive in planning for the changes.

Human resources, marketing and sales divisions must be transformational in their planning regarding these trends.

These changes also imply that individuals should examine their future plans. What skills can you develop in an Internet-driven
world that will make your visits to the bank be for deposits rather than withdrawals? What do you need to learn about the Internet
that will position you well for the future? As Boomers retire, those who don't can be in demand if they have the skills and maturity
that businesses will need. If you don't want to retire, how can you position yourself to be at the forefront of that demand? How can
you start an Internet-based business that does not require all of your time? Is there a business you can start that will serve the
changing human resource needs of businesses?

Rapid change creates danger and opportunity. The Chinese character for both words is the same. The meaning depends upon the
context of where it appears. That there will be massive changes in the business environment during the next few years cannot be

New Year’s Eve

New Year's Eve is a universal day of celebration. However, Sydney is one city in the whole world that plans, prepares for, anticipates and celebrates New Year’s Eve like no other. In Sydney, most of the excitement and activity concentrate around the Sydney Harbour.

The activities begin early in the afternoon, and towards night, the exhilaration builds up and at around 9:00 p.m., there is the much-awaited - in fact eagerly awaited throughout the year since the last New Year’s Eve - Family Fireworks. The display of fireworks during the New Year’s Eve celebrations at the Sydney Harbour is a show of magic and light where one can see pyrotechny at its best with its array of special effects.

Midnight Fireworks is a breathtaking ensemble of brilliant explosions from the barges, the rooves of the high-rise buildings and from different strategic points of the famous arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

After the Family Fireworks and before the Midnight Fireworks is the Harbour of Light Parade where several vessels of majestic style and design will participate in a parade with a specific theme. Ropelight designs would be this year’s theme for the parade and the magnificent vessels decked up in a variety of designs consistent to the theme, sailing in all their glory, would be a spectacular sight and a wonder of wonders!

Being onboard a vessel during the Parade would be the best gift that you give yourselves for the New Year.
Besides the cruising pleasure and the joy of dining and dancing onboard, being part of the parade also provides the best views of the fireworks. Be there once and that would turn out to be the most memorable night of a whole lifetime!

Tickets are sold throughout the year for the event, and towards the beginning of the last quarter of the year, they sell in multitudes every day. To ensure that you are onboard on this spectacular night, it is better that you book your tickets as soon as yesterday!

The fireworks are best seen from aboard these cruising wonders! With sparkling waves lapping against the sides of the vessels, the indulging comforts of the environ, the spirit of the night and the wine, the vision of the skies ablaze with colourful explosions, and the mesmerising power of the moment along with the anticipation of good things to come would assuredly make this a night of nights!
