Title: COMELEC ComeHECK! (Voter Registration Day 2), Pimping my desktop & Solid state Video cameras
The 2nd day, i need to go the comelec office (again) to register after
getting my birth certificate copy. My goodness, the lines were very long.
Longer than “Enteng Kabisote 3″‘s line at the box office (i bet they are that
long at SM cinemas). And it’s hot and there is no order. Went there at
around 1:30 PM, was out 4:45 PM. I was there standing in line and with not

desktop icons. Then i turned it on and ang linis ng desktop ko. Take a

CD-R king, the place to go for cheap CD-R/RW’s, DVD-+R/RW’s, PC accessories
and even Digital Cameras!. they started offering this 5,000+ peso Digicam
that records video in MPEG-4 (it said on the box) and saves into SD cards. I
have read and heard on the internet that these taiwan made cameras leaves a
lot to be desired, sub-par image and video quality, interpolated megapixels
(Example: one camera boasts 12 megapixels, closer inspection in the box
revealed only a 3.2 MP CMOS sensor. Yun lang ang importante.).
I also read online about the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1A. It records High-def 720P
Video on SD cards also, WOW. Image quality talo pa yung mga DV cameras pag
Why Meron akong post na ganito, imagine having a video camera in your pocket
ready for action most of the time. Pwede sana ang Digital Still camera, but
limited lang ang video capabilities nya.
