It's not exactly a technological tour de force, but Disney's new lineup of heavily branded digital cameras should hit their target market -- the wallets of pampered children's parents -- quite nicely. Starting off the branding extravaganza is the $20 Pix Micro cam (pictured), which shoots 352 x 240 pics and runs on a single AAA battery. A tad more exciting is the $50 Pix Click camera, which has a 1-inch color LCD, storage for 200 VGA pics, a built-in flash, TV output and 2 interchangable faceplates -- which of course prominently feature exciting Disney properties like our personal fav: 'High School Musical.' The $80 Disney Pix Max really pushes things to the limit, featuring a 3 megapixel CCD, 1.5-inch color LCD, expandable memory, TV-out and a flash. Finally, we have the Disney Princess Digital Movie Maker, which goes for $80 and includes 32MB of built-in memory for shooting VGA princess flicks -- Princess not included.

Expressing Motion in Photography - PictureCorrect Tips and Lessons: "Expressions of Motion in Photography


There are many situations in the world of photography where you will have to decide how you want to capture a moving subject. Whether it is an athlete running down the field or a bird swooping over the water there are many different photo outcomes possible. You could end up with everything in the scene perfectly displayed without any blur or you could end up with the subject in focus while the background is blurred from panning. In this article we will discuss the different techniques you could use in order to end up with different results.

Freezing the Motion

If you would like to freeze the motion of the subject along with the motion of the background, you should use a very high shutter speed. I would use a shutter speed of at least 1/300th of a second in order to make sure that you freeze everything. But there are other subjects you might find that will be moving unusually fast such as cars or thrown objects. If you would like to freeze a faster moving object you will probably need to use a shutter speed closer to 1/1000th of a second or faster. This shouldn't be a problem now because the new cameras are coming out with shutter speeds of up to 1/8000th of a second.
