Last week I said that if no one else wrote a review, I would — and as it turns out, there’s still just a bunch of previews but nothing substantive. Yes, it has 1080p HD video recording capabilities, yes it has a shiny-almost-Canon-7D-18-megapixel sensor… but no one’s commented on what it feels like. Specs are only a tiny portion of the story — so here’s a hands-on review of the new Canon 550D. Note: Don’t expect a highly-technical review. No…

As I alluded to elsewhere, I’m now the owner of a very-hard-to-get-your-hands-on Canon 550D (Digital Rebel T2i). I think there’s only about 20 in the UK at the moment, so I should probably write a full review — but I just don’t have time. Perhaps after the weekend, if there are still no reviews up on the Internet. In the mean time, here’s a test of the video/film functionality. This is recorded at 1080p ‘full HD’, but I messed it…

Tips: You don’t have to wait for one sound to finish before you start another. Also, you might want to turn your volume down a little… (If you can’t see the Flash soundboard below, you need to visit my blog.) By all means let me know of any particularly nasty/nefarious…

OK, bear with me here… I have two really conflicting themes going on in my head right now. The original plan was to discuss some of the great Christmas presents I’ve got over the years, and their importance or significance throughout my formative years. But then… well, I went and shaved my beard into a Hitler moustache. So… a little bit of a dilemma, as you can imagine, me being a Jew and all. Then, to make things even more…

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the retirement of Fridays from my weekly posting schedule. But! This is good news for a variety of reasons: My writing quality will improve! Actually, considering the quality here is already very high, the quality will probably stay the same. But if anything, it will improve! There will be more ‘features’. By removing Friday from my posting schedule I have three days in which I can set up more complicated…
