Recommended 2 Action Cams Feature By David Hague No doubt there were a lot of so called "Action Cams" in Chrissy stockings this year or under the tree.

Is it so complex that I won't be able to grasp its workflow? Or does it require so much computer horsepower my modest Dell XPS 2710 all-in-one won't drive it?

Recommended 18 A Close Look at The Panasonic AG-UX90 Camera Product Review By Stephen Schleicher For the last couple of weeks I have had a chance to test the new AG-UX90 camera from Panasonic.

It isn't a full frame sensor, but then again, this camera isn't designed for DSLR fans, or those planning on shooting a feature film. ...Read More »
