Canon link with Technicolor for New DSLR Video Features

Canon and Technicolor have signed a deal that will see the creation of a Technicolor profile created for and be made available to current and future Canon DSLR users.
It means that Canon DSLR users, like those who own the Canon 7D or the newly announced Canon EOS 600D will be able to shoot a movie with their camera and make it look like its been processed by Technicolor, giving it a professional look and feel as if it had been shot for the movies.

“Technicolor has closely followed the adoption of Canon EOS DSLR cameras into the ranks of professional productions,” stated Technicolor’s chief marketing officer, Ahmad Ouri. “We remain committed to cinematographers as they adopt new tools and techniques, and, based on the requests we’ve received from many of our creative clients, we have worked with Canon to provide a stable path, originating with these cameras and flowing effortlessly into our post pipeline.”
Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, for Canon USA added: “We are excited about Technicolor’s development of their new CineStyle for Canon EOS DSLR cameras, giving post-production professionals image files with much greater latitude and versatility when colour grading EOS footage.”
And they would be right, last year House used the Season 6 finale shows what DSLR movie-mode can do shooting the final episode on Canon cameras rather than more professional rigs.

Samsung Galaxy S II Will Get Processor 1.2GHz

Samsung has been known to be going on to create a follow up to the device appropriately dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S 2. This device features some very noteworthy specs including a 4.27-inch Super AMOLED display with 800 x 480 resolution, 1GB of RAM, 16/32GB of internal storage, microSD slot for additional storage, 8 megapixel rear facing camera with 1080p video capture, autofocus and LED flash, 2 megapixel front facing camera and Google’s Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 complete with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI 4.0.
The Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II is a pretty powerful beast as it is with its Exynos chipset featuring a dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU and Mali 400 GPU. However Samsung obviously decided 1GHz is not good enough for their flagship so they are adding more to it.
The company's Estonian office has just confirmed through their Facebook page that the two CPU cores will be running at 1.2 GHz, rather than the previously announced 1GHz. That update brings the Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II to the top of the Cortex-A9 class, in pure computing power, at least.

  “iPhone 5, the next model of iPhone 4, will be released on the coming 4th week of June. In the midst of the iPhone 5 postponement rumors, Apple has confirmed that iPhone 5 will be released as planned and it will be released simultaneously in Korea through SK Telecom and KT.”
But Of course, until Apple formally comes forth to announce the iPhone 5 we won’t know for sure if this is true or not as trusting word such as this seems a bit ill advised.

Simple Physics to iOS

SimplePhysics is the sequel to popular physics game BridgeBasher, challenging you to make structures that will withstand the laws of gravity and nature--while remaining under budget.This game is SimplePhysics. Seriously, that is the title, and the object isn’t to smash structures, but to build solid ones. You need to build tree houses that can hold the weight of four 50-pound children, which are represented by these boxes appropriately marked “Fragile”.
Part of the game involves putting the tree house through a Certification test, and you can use a “finger” test to touch and drag support trusses in order to isolate weak points. Overall, SimplePhysics makes for a great successor to BridgeBasher, with several useful interface additions and structural challenges to keep the game interesting. But be aware that this game will definitely challenge you and you may end up doing levels several times before you succeed.
