Jeffery Power spoke to Ben of Canon at the Digital Experience Booth. They talked about the Canon new R series of video cameras. They are part of the Vixia line. What makes this line special is you can connect them to your smart phone by Wi-fi. There are several apps that you can use, the first is Camera Access. It works on either iPhone or Android. It allows you to stream live from the camera to your phone. You can use it to control your camera from the phone. Another app is called Movie Uploader App which lets you upload your video to your favorite video sharing site. The Movie Uploader App is iOs only.
The R series has the latest image sensor built-in. There are 3 models in this series. The low end HF R30 has 8 gb of built-in memory plus a card slot. The high-end model, the Vixia HF R42 has 32 gb built-in memory with a card slot. The high-end model HF R42 suggested retail price is $499 and the HF R30 suggestive retail price is $399.00. There is also the HF R32 which is a flash camcorder. It’s suggested retail price is $499.

Hey folks have a serious case of the crud but the show must go on.. Probably better to listen to this one versus watch ;). Minor schedule changes on my Indy trip but a log going on here getting ready for the new quarter.
Moving forward, I have decided to add as many as 5 shows to the line up here at Geek News Central, host will have to agree to a two year commitment and have to carry their own weight and bring new fresh content to the site. This show remains same format, new shows to GNC will be unique and live under the GNC banner head. I have a very important survey for you to fill out. Link is directly below this paragraph.

Every once in a while I have a off night, and today during the show I just wasn’t hitting on all cylinders. Weird how that happens once in a while despite all best intentions. Things have been crazy here probably a lack of sleep. Next show is from Michigan after I spend the day at Ford Motor Company. For those wanting to meet, there will be a meet-up on 5-22 @ 6pm EST at Applebees in Coldwater Michigan please RSVP. Special version of Geek News Central Insider coming be a Insider!
Reminder to oneself turn the heat off in the room before starting the show. Not good to record the show when its 80 in the room. The folks watching the live stream got to watch a meltdown. :) Full tech show for you tonight. Ready to head home plans for 24hr Podcast are progressing. I review names submitted for the skypesaurus email me your choice.
I really do hate traveling as I am so spoiled when I am back in the studio in Hawaii. This show I talk a bit about Twitter and trust, do you trust the people you follow? Look forward to the meetup tomorrow night with show fans. Early show again on Thursday evening so join me for the live recording.
