Canon's 1080 HDV Camcorder

canon hard drive camcorderLoving these hard drive camcorders. This one's from Canon. Gizmag says:

Canon’s HV10 HD Camcorder – that’s what! It’s a 500g camcorder capable of 1080 HD (high definition) video and it’s roughly the size of a cigarette packet at 56x104x106mm. The HV10 HDV includes 10x optical zoom, Super Range Optical Image Stabilization, the DIGIC DV II image processor, and a Full HD resolution (1920x1080 video) CMOS sensor, similar to those found in Canon's Digital SLR cameras. Additionally, new "Instant AF" auto-focus technology, and the ability to take 3.1 megapixel photos, makes this one powerful device that fits comfortably in the palm of the hand. Scheduled to land in stores in September, the Canon HV10 HDV camcorder is a veritable "Best of" compilation of Canon technologies, and will sell for an estimated US$1299

Hulger Bluetooth Phone

 Archives Hulger Pip Phone Eighties 8

Mocoloco has a great interview with Hulger/Poke founder Nicolas Roope. When he's not making smart digital content for clients through his agency Poke with Iain Tait and pals, Nicolas is busy crafting old school phones for our modern age.

Remember our article in August 04 about the Pokia? Well, after a gentle word from a certain telephone manufacturing giant, Pokia changed their name to Hulger. In the interview, Nicolas explains his motivations for Hulger.

"It started out as a critique, but when I had the first prototype in my hand it became clear that there was a lot more to it. It was like realizing through this how much meaning is bound up in objects and how with a very simple subversion you create something very strong. The first reaction people give is always strong whether they find it funny or interesting."

One of their most interesting creations is the PIP PHONE that combines retro design with bluetooth technology that works with your mobile phone to give you a rather more satisfying alternative to that silver clip folk are sticking on their ears. In fact, the phone has proved so popular, it has sold out on Hulger's site!
