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…

I went to watch Star Trek earlier (which shockingly has an 8.6/10 rating on IMDB at the moment, but that’ll no doubt decrease after all the furiously-flapping fanboys (and girls?) have cast their votes) and it was… great!

I say latest, I mean ‘first’, but hopefully not the last — because Let the right one in is fantastic! Without spoiling, the film stars 2 kids, with a…

Just two hours ago my friend Dave and I found ourselves wondering if Ron Moore could actually do it. After the jaw-droppingly good mini series, and the stupendously awesome first season, the last few years had seen Ron Moore… slip a little. We were propelled through seasons 2 and 3, lifted up upon the fluttering wings of promise; the promise that we’d see more epic story arcs like those in the mini series and season 1. It wasn’t to be…
