Carlsberg Stunts with Bikers in Cinema

I just love this Carlsberg ad! The look on the moviegoers faces and the cheers from the bikers are too awesome :)

The Vampire Diaries - The Birthday

Oh yeah. Finally, the vampire and the werewolf admitted their feelings to one another. I love that scene heehee. And of course, the sappy (one way) telephone conversation between Stefan and Elena at the end of the first episode, don't tell me your heart wasn't moved by that scene, uh-uh.

Floyd "Sneaky" Mayweather

What a douche. Larry Merchant (who is 80 years old) just kicked Floyd Mayweather's ass, if not literally. What a rubbish game, the whole world saw your dirty tricks and little tantrum, chickenweather.

Canon S100 or SX40

There is a new Canon baby in town! Seriously, I'm rethinking my future G12 purchase because of the just released S100. According to Digital Photography's Review:

The S100 is in effect a whole new camera compared to the S95; almost every key feature has been upgraded or updated:
  • 24-120mm (equivalent) lens range, F2.0-5.9, built-in neutral density filter
  • 12.1 MP 1/1.7" Canon CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 5 image processor
  • ISO 80-6400
  • 2.3 fps continuous shooting (9.6 fps for 8 frames in High-Speed burst mode)
  • Full HD (1080p24) movie recording; H.264 compression, MOV format
  • Optical zoom in movie mode
  •  Super slow motion movie recording (640 x 480 @ 120fps, 320 x 340 @ 240 fps)
  • Direct movie record button
  •  Built-in GPS unit with image tagging and logger functions 
Frankly, I don't care about the built-in GPS tracker but I do care about its high sensitivity' CMOS sensor in the 1/1.7" format. This feature allowed Canon to increased s100's ISO to 6400! Wow lang.

On the other hand, this baby also looks smashing!

I've read (and been told) that the SX series' optical zooming capabilities are also pretty impressive. In addition to that, its low light performance are decent too, kinda like that of S95 (which is not bad at all)! However, what sold the SX40 to me, aside from the 35x Optical Zoom) was its 24mm ultra Wide-Angle lens. O di ba ang bongga!

G12 has officially been ousted as the replacement for my 3-1/3-year-old Canon Ixy point and shoot. I never wanted those fancy schmancy DSLRs so I'm quite happy that Canon released these 2 new digital compact cameras. The only problem now is what exactly to choose. But first, must make a pros and cons list.

Cine Europa 14

It's that time of the year again. I've been watching since '06 where all the watchers were pretty much the same group of people who silently acknowledge one another when lining up for tickets one hour before the actual screening. Good times!

Mt. Apo Summit

So, that's what we saw at the rooftop of the Philippines. Lots of fog. Joke! Well, aside from that, God granted us all a nice clearing albeit for a very limited time only. You can see Davao City below, the Mt. Talomo peak on the otherside and of course, the always majestic sea of clouds.
