Product Review “Kodak PixPro SP360 with Extreme Accessory Pack”

If you are an active person, in this day and time, who does have a GoPro? Well Kodak has released the the Kodak PixPro SP360 to deliver a new angle in active lifestyle filming. I have used the GoPro cameras in the past and I was really excited of the concept of a 360 degree panorama handheld mini camera. The idea is cool but the product itself is a bit of a let down. Firstly, it is not user friendly AT ALL! It is extremely frustrating to setup and use.

There is no screen on this unit, which makes it even harder to navigate the menus in order to get this to function. Through either Wi-Fi or NFC (if you can get it setup), in order to see the images you need to use the PIXPRO Remote Viewer App on your iOS/Android device. I honestly wasn’t even satisfied with the quality of the images and video taken with this device. It is said to come with an advanced MOS sensor with 16 MP but I just felt that it looked less than par. I have seen many output results from GoPros and I was never disappointed to date. 

I feel like I should still list some of the feature this comes with multiple viewing modes including Ring, Dome, Front Degree/Rear 180 Degree, 360 Degree Panorama, Globe. It is also 2m Shockproof, -10 Degree Freeze proof, Dustproof and Splash Resistant.  Extreme Accessory Pack 16 MP Camera with 1x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom with 1-Inch LCD. The Extreme Accessory Pack includes the following: (1) Standard Housing, (1) Waterproof Housing, (1) Suction Cup, (1) Bar Mount, (1) Vented Helmet Strap for Top Facing, (1) Vented Helmet Strap for Front Facing, (1) Head Strap, (1) Surfboard Adhesive Mount, (1) Flat Adhesive Mount, (1) Curved Adhesive Mount, (2) Extended Arms, (1) Quick Clip.

So there is definitely is some expansion if you want to take this on the road with you but honestly, I would just stick with your every day GoPros this is a trying to be a replacement or an alternative but it really doesn’t come close in quality to it. The price is pretty low, so if you are able to pick up one use or cheap to try, it couldn’t hurt to play with but I wouldn’t rely on it for your big trip since you will end up being disappointed with the end result for sure.

Hector (Simon Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasn’t really tasted life, and yet he’s offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name, Hector and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom, starring Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgård, Jean Reno and Christopher Plummer.

Concert Review “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” Kansas City, Missouri

Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show
Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts
Kansas City, Missouri
May 27 – June 1, 2014

Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars

Ah, Las Vegas in the 1960s. It still had the lure of mystery and DEFINITELY wasn’t kid friendly. If you were lucky, you could head to the Sands Hotel and take in the hottest show in town featuring a quartet of entertainers whose talents could never be topped. They were known as the Rat Pack – and for a few hours in Kansas City, they were back!

We were greeted by the jovial “voice of God.” And if you’re in Las Vegas who better to portray your deity then Buddy Hackett. As the voice of the late, great comedian comes through the speakers the audience is transported back five decades. The spotlight hits center stage and there they are: Funny man Joey Bishop (Sandy Hackett), the “King of Cool,” Dean Martin (Tom Wallek), the “Candyman,” Sammy Davis, Jr. (Louie Velez) and, of course, the “Chairman of the Board,” Francis Albert Sinatra (Danny Grewen). After a group opening number, entitled “Hello Again,” the audience is treated to some great one liners courtesy of Joey/Hackett. The son of the great Buddy Hackett, the comedy genes run deep in this family. The timing is spot on as is the quick wit, evident when some “Kansas City” themed jokes appear. The rest of the first act relies on the banter between Dean and Sammy as the two trade musical numbers. The act ends with the silhouette of Sammy bathed in light.

Act two welcomes Frank back to the stage. After a great medley of some signature songs (“Come Fly With Me,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “Fly Me to the Moon”), Frank takes a quiet moment to think about the one that got away. This brings on an appearance by “Frank’s One Love” (Lisa Dawn Miller, like Hackett a producer of the show) Miller is the daughter of song writing legend Ron Miller, whose songs include “Touch Me in the Morning,” “I’ve Never Been to Me” and “For Once in My Life,” which Frank performs in the show. The rest of the act consists of more laughter and music.

I’m very fortunate (and old) in that I had the great opportunity to see both Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr. perform before they passed away. With those memories in my head I naturally compared that experience to the one I had at this show. And I wasn’t disappointed. Grewen has that smooth, clear quality that made Sinatra extraordinary and Velez was spot-on perfect as Sammy Davis, Jr. Ms. Miller belted out her number with gusto, making herself a proud member of the group. If there was any disappointment it came courtesy of Tom Wallek’s Dean. He had the look and the mannerism’s down, but the voice just wasn’t right. During the on stage banter he sounded more like Johnny Carson then Dean Martin. A little quibble maybe, but something that someone like me, who grew up watching, and own on DVD, Martin’s classic television roasts. That being said, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” is a must-see for anyone that wants to recapture those magical days of yesterday!
