I knew I should have become a baseball player!

You know, although I’m french (nodody’s perfect) I am a huge baseball fan, especially of the San Francisco Giants. Today, as usual, I read the news on mlb.com and I’ve seen that Matt Cain, pitcher of the SF Giants, signed a tremendous five-year, $112.5 million contract, making him baseball’s richest right-hander by average annual value. Awesome!

That sounds pretty cool for Matt, but it reminds me that I should have become a baseball player… Maybe one of my son would become a star in the MLB championship? I will do my best to motivate them. You can trust me.

Congratulations to the New-York Giants, winners of the Superbowl XLVI

Like every year, there was a moment that I can’t miss, even if I am french : The Superbowl. Since I was a young boy, I always loved football (american football I mean, not soccer). Even if I am a huge fan of the San Francisco 49ers, I want to congratulate the New-York Giants, and their amazing quaterback Eli Manning for their incredible victory in the Superbowl XLVI 21-17 over the New England Patriots led by the famous Tom Brady.

Suspense has been at the top until the end of the game and that was a real pleasure to watch it on W9 (Thanks to this french TV channel for broadcasting the game live). Impressive tackles, amazing passes, big rushes and a huge dose of suspense until the last second of the game: We got all ingredients for an unforgettable football game. I hope it will be the same next season, but this time with the 49ers instead of the Giants.

Interesting review of the Canon XA10 camcorder

When we traveled to America during our vacations in June 2011, I made a movie with my brand new camcorder Sony NEX VG10. The result was pretty good (I will post the movie on Youtube as soon as I finish up the video editing on iMovie). The quality of images if highly appreciable, but, during the trip, the weight of the camera with additional lenses was real issue for me.

That’s why I am looking for a smaller and lighter professional camera that I can carry on during our next trips. So, I found the Canon XA10, a small camcorder with impressive features for it’s size.

Here is a nice review of this camera provided by DV TV.

Thanks to Philip Bloom for the review of Canon XA 10 and XF 100 camcorders!

As you know I like taking pictures with my Nikon D300. But during our vacations in America in June, I started to make movies with my brand new Sony NEX VG10. This full HD camcorder with interchangeable lenses has powerful features. The only weak point is the weight of this camera when the 18-200 mm lens is plugged on it.

Well, after 6 months using this unique camera, as a true geek, I got the feeling it was time to upgrade to a professional camcorder, but which one?

After a week studying pro cams, I finally selected the Canon XA 10 and the Canon XF 100.

The first one is one of the smallest professional camcorder. This cam has really impressive features for it’s size and and price range (less than $1.900). This compact camera is perfect for making nice movies on travel.

The second one, the XF 100 is quite bigger and heavier, but not so much. This is a truly professional camcorder with all features needed to make high quality movies. It’s quite expensive (around $4.000) but this price is justified by it’s serious finish and it’s powerful features.

Now, the choice between these two cameras is difficult because each one has it’s pros and cons. Hopefully, I found this video from Philip Bloom, movie director, filmmaker and blogger. He shares with us his professional point of view about the Canon XA 10 and XF 100. Thank you so much Philip for sharing your complete review of these camcorders and more specifically for comparing these two devices. Your analyze is a valuable help to take my decision.

New design for Watsupmanu: Salju, the Tumblr-like theme for WordPress

After almost 2 years of loyal service, I think it is time to change the design of Watsupmanu.com. Dear english readers, I have to confess I have tested a new theme of the blog only on the french version during the last 6 months. But now, time has come to upgrade the english one!

So, as you can see the style of the blog has been completely remolded. This new design is based on a free Tumblr-like theme for WordPress called Salju. Of course, I have changed a lots of things from the original theme to get what I need exactly.
