Amazon Kindle Battery A00100

Three months ago I heard that Amazon Kindle D00111 is getting popular in USA. The Kindle is an e-book (Electronic Book) reader created by, it is a device which allows you to download books, newspapers, blogs and magazines wirelessly without a PC. And there is nobody better to tell you exactly what Kindle does than the people who made the device.

Last week I finally got the real Kindle. The original replacement battery is made with a li-polymer cell rated at 1530mAh. The li-polymer cell is wrapped by a hard plastic case at four sides. The battery also comes with a plug-in connector. So it is easy to change the battery. However it is not necessary to have a hard plastic case because it requires mould-openning and adds much cost.

Home Theater Master MX-3000 battery BTPC56067A

In the past several weeks we received many inquiries for a battery called BTPC56067A. Unfortunately we couldn't find any trace of it from the web search. Today we finally know it is for a home theater remote control named MX-3000 which is manufactured by the Universal Remote Control, a USA based company.

MX-3000 is a color touch screen remote similar to those offered by Crestron or AMX. However the MX-3000 doesn’t offer quite the level of customization a Crestron system does, it has more than enough features to handle the average home theater or media room setup. To name a few features of this remote control as belows:

*PC Programmable
*Color touchscreen
*Built-In templates
*Replaces up to 255 remote controls

Now we come to the MX-3000 battery. Its battery is made by a single li-polymer battery cell rated at 2100mAh. Above is photo of replacement battery offered by us.

GripFun Director's Viewfinder

A Directors viewfinder or director's finder is a Viewfinder used by film directors to see the scene as seen by the camera lens. In appearance it is like a monocular telescope that usually hangs around the neck.

While modern film cameras are relatively light weight, earlier models were quite heavy and moving them required some effort. The director's finder allows the directors to be more productive as they can plan where to place the camera and which lens to select for the camera without the need to move the larger film camera.

Most viewfinders allow different focal lengths and film sizes. In some models also the aspect ratio is selectable. Some viewfinders allow the mounting of cinema lenses.

GripFun rotating viewfinder is the most affordable large size director's finder. It is relatively compact, but includes all standards film & TV formats and all standards aspect ratios including 16:9. The aspect ratio adjustment ring features convenient click stops. It makes your photographing enjoyable.

Sunpow Matte Box

A matte box is a camera accessory that essentially does the same thing as a lens hood and also mounts in front of the lens, but usually includes adjustable fins called French flags. These can be moved and adjusted to reduce unwanted lens flare caused by lights or the sun.

Another purpose of a matte box is to hold glass or plastic filters in place in front of the lens. Today, matte boxes are made for DV cameras and HD cameras for the same reasons as a film camera. Some are supported by two rods that run the length of the camera, while others are supported by the lens itself.

A matte box may have a bellows, a rigid sunshade or both, where the bellows is positioned within the rigid sunshade, having a mask which may be adjusted forward or back to suit the focal length of the lens.

Sunpow matte box fits Panasonic, Sony and JVC professional cameras. Its size is 215x170x50cm, and its weight is 2.35Kgs.

Blackberry Bold 9000 & BAT-14392-001

Like all other Rim old models Blackberry Bold 9000 wins thousands of fans after its first release. It is the first from this company to support tri-band HSDPA high-speed 3G networks around the world. It is the first from RIM with a half-VGA (480 by 320 pixel) display, and the first with robust support for viewing and editing Microsoft Office documents.

The design isn't a radical departure from RIM's earlier lineup, though. It will have a tablet shape with a QWERTY keyboard. However, it will be curvier, with corners that are significantly rounder than any previous BlackBerry.

Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 2 MPx camera will round out this smartphone.

Its battery is Li-ion type battery with capacity of 1500mAh. However its original battery is quite expensive since it has a special chip inside the battery. We receive calls for replacement battery. Now it is available. Here is a review of replacement battery.

GripFun Battery Grip

A battery grip is an accessory for an SLR/DSLR, which allows the the camera to hold multiple batteries to extend the battery life of the camera, and adds a vertical grip with an extra shutter release (and other controls), facilitating the shooting of portrait photography.

It usually attaches to the camera body through the cameras own battery compartment and provides a cassette to hold additional batteries to increase the battery life for the camera. Most battery grips also come with a second cassette allowing the photographer to shoot using multiple AA batteries.

Most battery grips are designed to fit only one or a few specific camera models, since they must match the body's shape, connectors, and power requirements.

GripFun series battery grips are developed by Sunpow Industrial Limited. The GripFun receives fantastic popularity since its first introduction in year 2006. Currently GripFun has three series: Nikon Grips, Canon Grips and Pentax Grips. GripFun will have more fantastic series in the coming days.

professional camcorder viewfinder

The TL-350VF is a LCD viewfinder designed to replace expensive Panasonic Viewfinder AJ-VF15.

Main Features:
*Display size: 3.5"
*Aspect ratio: 4:3
*Resolution: 960x234
*Brightness: 400Cd/㎡
*Contrast: 150:1
*Responding time: 30ms
*Working format: Analogue
*Color System: PAL/NTSC(auto detect)
*Video input: 20 pins general cable
*Tally: Yes
*Input voltage: 12V DC
*Working temperature: -20℃-60℃
*Viewing angle: left 60℃/right 60℃/up15℃/ down 35℃
*Power consumption: ≤3W/0.25A
What's Viewfinder:
In photography, a viewfinder is what the photographer looks through to compose, and in many cases to focus, the picture. Most viewfinders are separate, and suffer parallax, while the more complex single-lens reflex camera lets the viewfinder use the main optical system. Viewfinders are used in many cameras of different types: still and movie, film, analog and digital. A zoom camera usually zooms its finder in synch with its lens, one exception being rangefinder cameras.

Viewfinders can be optical or electronic. An optical viewfinder is simply a reversed telescope mounted to see what the camera will see. Its drawbacks are many, but it has one main advantage: it consumes no power. An electronic viewfinder is a CRT, LCD or OLED based display device, though the former is rarely used today due to size and weight. In addition to its primary purpose, an electronic viewfinder can be used to replay previously captured material, and as an on-screen display to browse through menus.

It is not uncommon for a camera to have two viewfinders. For example, a digital still camera may have an optical viewfinder and an electronic one. The latter can be used to replay previously captured material, has an on-screen display, and can be switched off to save power. A camcorder may have two viewfinders, both electronic. The first is viewed through a magnifying eyepiece, and due to a rubber eyepiece it can be viewed perfectly even in bright light. The second viewfinder would be larger, of a higher resolution, and may be mounted on the side of the camera. Because it consumes more power, a method is often provided to turn it off to save energy.

Some special purpose cameras do not have viewfinders at all. These are, for example, web cameras and video surveillance cameras. They use external monitors as their viewfinders.

Led News Light-CL-A120

News Light is also called camera light, interview light, etc. It works same on video camcorder as that flash light on digital camera. Since the tradtional news light is halogen light which has limited lighting life and consume power a lot, more and more people turn to LED news light.
The CL-A120 is a powerful LED energy-saving news light designed for photography, setting lighting, filling lighting and illumination. The CL-A120 has many superority over halogen light.

Main features of CL-A120:
*The illumination effect of CL-A120 under 4.7-5.7W is same as 35W traditional halogen light. *The CL-A120 possesses higher color revivification index and higher stability of color temperature. The color temperature would not change while brightness changes, which makes it suitable to the requirement of professional photography.
*The brightness of CL-A120 can be adjusted from 1%-100%, so it is easy to adjust to a satisfactory brightness level.
*The CL-A120 has internal li-polymer battery which is of non-explosive risk; also the battery has alert indicator and can be replaced by the users.
The CL-A120 is affordable for professionals, prosumers and consumers. It is just USD350.00 on the market.

Broadcast and TV technicals

High definition TV
High definition video equipment {Hi Def in the film world, or HDTV to those with more of a television background} has been around a long time, and there are a number of competing formats. All offer substantial advantages over conventional (standard definition) broadcast video. HDTV broadcasts are now established in some countries, including the USA and Japan, though the numbers of viewers with HiDef screens is, as yet, quite small.

HDTV's excellent picture quality offers great potential, provided the means are in place to show the finished programme in its full glory - on a suitable large screen, or using a high definition video projection system, or by transfer to film for projection.

Hi Def production is now practical, if still relatively expensive. To date it remains a relatively rare choice in Europe. As trends in Japan and the USA towards high-definition production continue to strengthen, this may change over here in the near future.

The appeal for low-budget film makers planning an eventual transfer to film for distribution will be considerable. It would be no surprise were a number of businesses and organisations to want to use the new formats to make a splash at events, exhibitions or elsewhere, and traditional broadcasters will no doubt be examining both the cost and the quality developments closely.

There are a number of different technical routes under the HDTV umbrella. The two with early market dominance are:

Sony's HDCam (usually "1080i" - that is at a nominal 1920x 1080 resolution with interlaced frames, and 24 or 25 fps - but a number of variants are possible) ,

and Panasonic's DVCProHD (usually "720p" - that is, a nominal 1290x 720 resolution with progressive scan frames, and again typically 24 or 25 fps).

Both these formats downsample the nominal picture dimensions to manage data rates, and both use quite a lot of compression - nevertheless, the results can be excellent.

Sony's HDCAM SR goes a step further - full colour sampling (4:4:4 instead of a nominal 3:1:1; full screen resolution; apparently no compression - but as a result, more data to handle.)

Broadcast quality- digital:
A number of digital formats are at present available in the UK, including; Digital Betacam - 1/2" component from Sony, using 2:1 data compression. The dominant format. Digi Beta machines can play back earlier Betacam formats, so that archive footage can easily be incorporated into current production.

DVCPro 50 - Panasonic's full broadcast system, recording onto DV-width tapes. Excellent quality and value.

MPeg2 IMG - Sony broadcast mpeg 2 variant, recordable direct to optical disc on is XDCAM camcorders Has achieved considerable sales success in mainland Europe, if less so in the UK to date.

D5 - 1/2" component from Panasonic, does not use data compression. Originally Channel 4's required delivery format - now they accept D5 or Digi Beta. The strengths of D5 in editing and technical quality are offset by the lack of camera systems recording on this format, and it does not look likely to achieve wider market acceptance.

Digital S, also known as D9; 1/2" digital component from JVC, using low (3.3:1) compression and generating broadcast quality. High quality and low prices have yet to bring a breakthrough in the market, perhaps partly because of Sony’s clout, and the ability of Digi Beta and Beta SX machines to play back the vast amount of Betacam SP material which producers hold

Betacam SX - alternative digital format from Sony, offering lower quality and cost than Digital Betacam, and initially aimed at news organisations. Uses MPEG 2 compression. Offers choice of traditional or widescreen aspect ratios. To date few Beta SX edit suites have emerged - the source material has typically been mastered onto digital Betacam or D5.

Record to Disc and solid-state. Camcorders that bypass tape altogether and record directly onto hard disc or to f;lash drive cards are available, both at a pro level (see MPeg2 IMG / XD) and for the domestic market. Some think that this is the likely direction in the medium term. Others think this may take a long time to emerge as a mainstream shooting format.

Sometimes used for broadcast:

DVC Pro Close to broadcast quality at low cost from a 6mm tape using 6:1 data compression.( Full broadcast quality version DVC Pro 50 is also available.)

DV CAM: a competitor to DVCPro. Sony's record of success in broadcast video makes any format they back a contender, though their Betamax domestic system and DCC audio system both failed commercially. Neither DV Cam nor DVC Pro reach full broadcast standard, though both are much used for broadcast work.

DV (Digital Video) High-quality domestic standard, and the platform from which DVC Pro and DV Cam have been developed. DV camcorders are sometimes used for broadcast production when considerations of speed and ease of access take precedence over technical quality.

Other well-known digital formats include:D1 This was the original broadcast digital video system, and is still widely used for compositing graphics. Does not use data compression. D1 features excellent technical quality, but high prices, and has lost some ground to Digital Betacam

Broadcast quality - analogue:
Traditional analogue production systems are currently being replaced by digital systems, though organisations with large investments in analogue equipment will no doubt keep it running as long as possible. Of the main analogue systems, only Betacam SP retains a significant place in the production sector..

Betacam SP (component): Once dominant for broadcast both for production and as an edit format, and still widely used for promotional video programmes. Broadcast quality in its original "BVW" version, though to extend its dominance Sony introduced two lower cost variants, known as PVW and UVW.

Betacam was one of two early tape formats built on the "component" idea - recording separate "raw" streams of data to represent different components of the video signal (red, green and blue, or in Betacam's case, luminance, red minus luminance, blue minus luminance) rather than a single combined ("composite") stream, like PAL or NTSC. Component proved to give excellent data handling and picture quality, and is now used, in one or other variant, in most digital video systems.

Broadcast quality - film formats:
Film still has a significant share of the production market, both for TV and for promotional and training productions where projection to a large audience is necessary. Film gives the best results for large-screen projection, and offers very high quality as a source for video.

35mm: The standard format for cinema films and much TV advertising. Sometimes used for major public relations events, and presentations such as new car launches.

16mm / super 16 mm: Used for some TV drama and big-budget documentary. In the business world, a high-quality option when projection to a large audience is desired. Film is also often as the original recording medium with the results then transferred to computer disc or videotape for editing.


A number of formats are in widespread use which do not meet broadcast standards, but are cheaper. Recent years have seen steady improvements in lightweight domestic camcorders recording onto a variety of tape formats. These can be coupled to PCs (or Macs) to deliver a budget version of desktop video, though as yet this approach has attracted only a small part of the professional market. The most prominent domestic formats are:

DV (Digital Video) Domestic digital videotape, using small tapes and low compression ratios (6:1): offers spectacular improvement on VHS in quality. The quality is close to broadcast, and should not degrade in editing so long as repeated decompressing and recompressing of the video data is avoided. As low-cost DV production equipment (camcorders and edit machines) become more widely used, they may turn the whole video production world upside down.

VHS and S-VHS: VHS is the dominant format for domestic video, and offers reasonable playback quality from original recordings. As quality falls each time the original is copied, to edit or to make show copies, VHS is not much used for production except for home movies and weddings.

S-VHS offers an improvement on VHS, particularly in picture resolution, but is weak on colour handling in editing and has not been taken up professionally except where cost pressures are extreme; after editing, picture quality falls below the quality produced on high-band U-matic.

Digital 8: Sony hybrid format that records DV signals onto Hi- 8 tape. Little take-up for professional use.

Other contenders:
D-VHS Digital variant of VHS offering very high picture and sound quality, widescreen compatibility, and the ability to play back standard VHS tapes. Little take up to date.

DVD RECORDABLE A format that could be immensely significant; recordable DVD seems set to replace home VHS tape units, much as CD took over the mass market from tape and vinyl for audio. DVD recordable is also a strong computer format; this is an area of convergence in video and computing technology. Domestic camcorders which record direct to DVD are now on the market.

Historic note: formats we have loved.

D2 Digital composite - the colour signals are combined into a single signal, using the PAL colour system in the UK; this gives less good results than component when used for editing. This format looks likely to die out. D3 1/2" digital composite on portable cassettes; a strong early contender for location recording, and accepted and used by the BBC for the Barcelona Olympics. Looks likely to die out.

1"C format (composite): Ageing, high-quality tape standard, once the dominant workhorse for studio production and as the master or source tape for bulk duplication of VHS copies. Broadcast quality. Now more or less obsolete.

M11 (component): Similar to Betacam SP, and of equivalent quality, but never widely adopted and now little used. Broadcast quality.

Video 8mm, Hi-8: These formats are interesting because they use extremely small tapes, and tiny cassette players (not much bigger than a standard audio-cassette walkman) are available. They offer slightly higher quality than their VHS counterparts, but have not achieved wide acceptance except for camcorder use.

Video 8mm is mainly used as a domestic camcorder format, and partly because it allows for small, light camera kit with long recording times it achieved some success, at one time taking well over half of the camcorder market. There are many video 8 camcorders still in use.
Hi-8 is a later variant of video 8mm offering improved quality in a very compact form.

The U-matic family of formats, a 3/4" tape, cassette-based family first launched by Sony as a home recording and display format in the late 70s. These offer good playback quality, and were used for news gathering in the late 70s and early 80s. They are now mainly used for production where cost-saving is paramount; particularly for training programmes for internal audiences. Likely to disappear as cheap digital formats emerge

Some of these U-matic formats are frequently and wrongly described by their owners or proponents as "broadcast standard", although they fall way below EBU/ITC standards and are not normally allowable for UK broadcast. The main U-Matic formats in current use are:

U-matic SP and High Band U-matic(also known as BVU): still used in a few organisations for producing internal training videos, this was widely used for promotional films until the mid-80s and the spread of the Betacam formats.

Low Band U-matic: though this was mainly used as playback format, it as sometimes used for production. Likely to give way entirely to DV production and DVD distribution anytime soon ...

Broadcast TV Production Terms

Widely used, high-quality family of video tape formats: professional equivalents of the familiar domestic VHS format. Digital Betacam - "DigiBeta" s currently the dominant format in broadcast TV production, at least in Europe. It is under challenge, though, from lower-cost, high quality systems (including XD CAM), and from the other end by the emergence of affordable high definition cameras and edit systems.

In the non-broadcast world, DigiBeta remains a force, though the excellent quality and lower costs of other formats including DVC Pro, DV CAM D9 (Digital S), domestic DV (and no doubt, anytime soon, HDV) have seen them take over large sections of the market.

The "next big thing" in production, and likely to replace the Betacam family in due course. Rapid growth in High Definition TV broadcasting in the USA and Japan as well as the great popularity of modern plasma and LCD screens has fuelled a surge in investment by broadcast technology manufacturers. High Definition TV makes use of much more picture information than current - Standard Definition - TV.

There are a number of competing Hi Def formats, of course. To date, the most widely used HDTV standards include frame sizes 1280 x 720 pixels, or 1920 x 1080 pixels. Either offers dramatic visual impact and great improvements on Standard Definition (SD - 720 x 576 for PAL) on a high-resolution screen. Different (incompatible) Hi Def recording formats include Sony's HD CAM and HD CAM SR, and the promising XD CAM HD, Panasonic's D5 HD and DVC PRO HD, and a lower-cost format agreed by a consortium of manufacturers - HDV.

Sony New HDV camera HDR-FX1000

Sony is expanding its industry leading line-up of high-definition video products with two new HDV™ cameras designed to meet the needs of professionals and prosumers.

With the HDR-FX1000 Handycam® camcorder, more adept consumer videographers gain access to cinematic features, including 24P scanning and advanced color settings for around $3,200. With the HVR-Z5U camcorder, professionals will appreciate its native 24P recording and other professional features—all for less than $5,000—as well as tapeless recording capability through an optional CompactFlash™ adapter.

“The HDR-FX1000 is appealing to the amateur videographer shooting weddings or the aspiring cinematographer,” said Kelly Davis, director of camcorder marketing at Sony Electronics. “The combination of film-like movie quality and advanced color settings makes it possible for prosumers to achieve the deep cinematic look they crave at a reasonable price.”
The HVR-Z5U camcorder offers a “step-up” solution for professionals who desire a more advanced set of features.

“Professionals need features like balanced audio, XLR inputs, timecode and more,” said Bob Ott, vice president of professional audio and video products at Sony Electronics. “They also need access to technical resources to help them with issues like integrating with non-linear editing systems. This is where a professional solution like the HVR-Z5U is an appropriate choice.”

Enhanced Image Capture

Both models use three of Sony’s ClearVid™ 1/3-inch CMOS sensor chips, which are designed to provide high sensitivity, deep resolution, high-speed reading, low noise and a wider dynamic range. The CMOS sensors capture full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, resulting in better picture quality when recorded onto miniDV tape in the HDV format (1440 pixels x 1080 lines). Each of the three sensors is dedicated to one color—red, blue and green—for natural, more accurate color reproduction.

With a 45-degree rotated pixel layout, the ClearVid CMOS sensor system offers outstanding pixel surface area while maintaining high resolution. The Exmor™ technology features a unique column-parallel analog-to-digital conversion technique and dual noise canceling, resulting in digital signals with extremely low noise. The technologies combine to allow the new camcorders to perform significantly better in low-light environments with sensitivity of 1.5 lux.
Both cameras use Sony’s XtraFine LCD™ (3.2-inch, 921,000 dots) and XtraFine electronic viewfinder (0.45-inch, 1,227,000 dots) for high-resolution and high-contrast images with remarkable color reproduction.

Ideal For Aspiring Cinematographers
The HDR-FX1000 is Sony’s first Handycam camcorder to feature progressive scan at 1080/24p and 30p, giving video productions a film-like look. Using a two to three pull down, the 24P scanned image is converted to 60i for easy editing with user’s existing software applications. CinemaTone Gamma™ and CinemaTone Color™ settings complement the 24P capabilities to create a rich dreamlike picture processing while three built-in neural density filters provide exceptional light control even in extremely bright environments.

Equipped with a refined level of optical performance, the HDR-FX1000 and the HVR-Z5U models are the first camcorders to have a Sony G lens with a 29.5mm wide-end viewing angle, extra-low dispersion glass and 20x optical zoom. The fixed lens is optimized to perfectly complement the cameras’ advanced image sensor and image-processing technology.
The HDR-FX1000 model enables prosumers to define their own manual settings for iris, gain, white balance, shutter speed and focus for increased creativity and control. Use of any of the three manual rings for adjustments to zoom, focus and iris provides even more flexibility.

Professional Video Production

The HVR-Z5U camcorder offers the addition of several features specifically designed for professional video production, such as progressive scan shooting at 1080/24P and 30P, DVCAM™ recording, timecode support and two XLR balanced audio inputs.

Professionals can record the native 24P/30P signal on to the videotape used in the camcorder or to CompactFlash cards – simultaneously or separately – with the optional HVR-MRC1K recording unit. This unit attaches directly to the back of the camcorder, eliminates the need for cables and automatically synchronizes with the recording action of the camcorder.

The recording unit can be directly attached to the new HVR-Z5U camera, as well as to Sony’s HVR-Z7U and HVR-S270U models. It will also work with other HDV camcorders using a supplied iLINK® (IEEE-1394) cable and shoe adapter.

The camcorder, and the HVR-MRC1K adapter will be compatible with Sony’s Professional 306x CompactFlash card. The recording times on an 8 and 16 GB CompactFlash card in HDV, DVCAM and DV format are approximately 36 and 72 minutes, respectively.

The HDR-FX1000 camcorder will be available in early November at authorized dealers nationwide, Sony Style® retail stores and online through
The HVR-Z5U professional camera is expected to be available in December for a suggested list price of $4950. The HVR-MRC1K recording unit should be out in October for a suggested list price of $940.
