The San Diego & Imperial Counties Labor Council
held the 3rd Annual Cesar Chavez Day March
on March 31, 2010 at Spanish Landing Park, in San Diego CA. Marchers weaved their way through the San Diego airport, the County Administration Building, corporate buildings and banks downtown, ending the 4 mile walk with a rally at City Hall. The theme "Good Jobs, Local Jobs" reflected Cesar Chavez's message of fairness and equality. The march was very uplifting, hopeful and historical. Si se puede!
After tons of photos leaked on the net of the rumored FLIP SlideHD camera
it's finally official. It looks a pretty cool gadget. It has a touchscreen and a widescreen. News features include image stabilization and a 1080p sensor with better low-light performance. With a price of $279, it has some mixed reviews. The Slide is basically a really chunky Mino HD when in camera mode -- you get the same buttons and the same interface, just implemented via touchscreen.
After reading some reviews, I was actually expecting a lot more. The Kodak Zi8
on the other hand has the external microphone jack
, which I can find very useful. The Nikon S8000
recording at up to ISO 3200, a 10x optical zoom lens, and a three-inch, 921,000-dot LCD that will absolutely crush the screen on the Slide.
For right now, I will wait and see what the competition has to offer... Hopefully Kodak will release its next generation of portable video cameras soon.
