Cinemablend gives Hobbit film a high score for great use of 3D

Cinemablend takes a look at some basic 3D techniques and how 3D has been applied in “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” – and gives a very high score to Peter Jackon’s latest Middle Earth epic: To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Ticket – CINEMABLEND.

Since the film was designed, filmed and CGI’d from the beginning with 3D in mind, its been done very well.

Today only: Olympus XZ-2 camera just USD $179

This is a fantastic deal – I own this camera and its my “walk around” camera – I love it. It shoots RAW, it shoots macro close ups, it has a fast f/1.8 lens, and a 1/1.63″ sensor, amazing low light capability, and it’s small, shoots 1080p video, and shoots much better photos than any “point n shoot”. Super convenient. I highly recommend this camera for anyone seeking that feature set.

You can see some of my XZ-2 photos on my Flickr XZ-2 album page.

This deal ends in 12 hours after I post this!

Flying Magazine notes collateral damage caused by model aircraft bans

Flying Magazine notes that many, many of today’s pilot’s developed their early interest in aviation through the model aircraft hobby. Increasingly draconian government regulations against “drones” threaten the entire model aircraft hobby, which in turn, threatens the future of the general aviation industry.

At this time, the use of recreational model aircraft for personal – and any commercial use – is buried beneath a threatening and oppressive rules regime with the United States.

I have suspended use of my Hubsan X4. I live within 5 miles of an airport and the FAA’s rules are a mishmash of contradictory statements, contradictions with Federal law and outright absurdities.
