Adoramas Point of View on the Looxcie 3 HD Video Cam
Adorama Learning Centers Mason Resnick, a technology and photo industry expert, took the Looxcie 3 hands-free HD video cam for a spin. He finds the tiny on-the-go camera an excellent choice when shooting action-packed adventures from ones own point of view. Resnick comments, Anyone who watches the many point-of-view videos that have proliferated on YouTube and Vimeo knows that hands-free action video cameras are becoming insanely popular. Size and weight especially when youre doing something like skiing down a mountain or riding a mountain bike on rough terrain is especially important.
 
He continues, The Looxcie 3, a tiny, light addition to its growing line of hands-free compact HD video cameras, is exceptionally small and light. The Looxcie 3 is powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery that is good for up to 90 minutes of recording time, and it records onto microSD cards, which can hold up to 64GB per card. Looxcie has developed a line of devices to attach the 3 to your head, your bike handles, and your windshield, so you can get exciting action point-of-view videos.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
