Panasonic SDR-S10 is here. Video recording will never be the same. For a very long time people have been predicting the end of tape for video recording and this Spring with new products from many companies the end is near. The S10 is small enough to fit in your shirt pocket, has a big screen, 10x zoom, stereo sound and records MPEG2 on a SD card. A camera like this would also easily fit in a camera bag along with an DSLR. With travel there are times good video and sound would be something I would use. Places that come to mind are a Spanish crowded morning coffee shop where you can't talk over the sound of china plate being tossed about or that sound of a French police car on a Paris street. Here is a link to Panasonic.

Mother's day is coming soon and a survey commissioned by Circuit City Stores in the U.S. has discovered what Mothers really would like. You may have guessed, 20 per cent would like a new digital camera, with 16 per cent wanting a new camcorder. And flowers, 16 per cent would enjoy flowers. In the same survey it was discovered the chief family historian 58 per cent of the time is the Mother with Father at 26 per cent and the kids 15 per cent. Looks like this Mother's Day you can't go wrong by giving a new camera and fresh flowers. Candy was only one per cent but at only one per cent I don't think they included chocolate, but there is always Father's Day. Bill
