There’s been some cool USB flash drives lately that are eye-candy to me. Check ’em out…
Pacquiao vs. Hatton Candid Reaction
Did you see that fight this past Saturday night? That was some crazy carnage coming from a dude who smiles right before he’s about to enter the ring and fight someone who is bad ass at the weight they’re fighting in. I’m talking about the Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao vs. Ricky “Hitman” Hatton fight. I think it was dubbed “The Battle of East and West”. Don’t know if that’s important or not, but these two are great fighters to each in their own right.
Anyways, I watched the fight at a friend’s Bachelor’s Party down in SoCal. I was nervous right to the first punch. Then Pacman started setting up his combos. Next thing you know, he chalks up two knock-downs in the first round.
“WTF?!?! I didn’t know it was going to be this damn exciting, and fast”. I said to myself. So I quickly grabbed my point-and-shoot camera, sneaked it in on a place below the TV, and set it on to record video… hoping to get a candid of everyone’s reaction to the rest of the fight.
Lo and behold—it turned out to be a rewarding, stupendous and hilarious idea. They totally were busy celebrating the first round, and didn’t notice it at all. Funny-ass-hell.
Anyways, I hope you like it!
PS. Turn “HQ” on, as well as “Annotations” if you haven’t yet =)
DIY Helmet Cam for Snowboarding & Skiing
I dedicate the following video to the homie Keno for sure! Haha…
He’s been thinking of doing something like this and usually holds his Powershot with his right hand while going down the slopes. The only problem with his technique is that it somewhat hinders his balance. One the other hand, the only down side to probably having the camera on your head is that you really got to be careful of how you ride, and not get into some sort of face plant, aka. kissing powder =)
Here’s a live shot of it in use:

Phottix Grip vs. Canon BG-E2
I did some research and didn’t find anything too negative towards getting this Phottix BP-40D vs a Canon BG-E2/BG-E2N as a grip for my 30D other than the make. The pro-point is that its only $75 shipped from Hong Kong to San Francisco. It has the same features as its Canon counterpart but for less. Here are some points from the eBay seller, etefore (aka. HK Supplies), of whom I got it from:
The New Canon 30D
As I was doing my late-night news roundup, I stumbled upon some interesting new Web 2.0 apps. The top two that are on my list to beta-test are Foldera and Flyspy. I can’t wait to see how Foldera works, it seems that it’ll be useful at work and at home. As for Flyspy, this thing should make it easier for those of us “remotely” working from home. I hope it saves me a ton of cash so I may have some left for some other goodies later this year. Not to mention, a couple of expenses during my big trips (Hawaii, Japan and P.I.).
