Quick Review: Sony cyber-shot WX350

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Dear Reader, I recently purchased a new point-and-shoot camera to replace my ageing (if not somewhat battered) Canon IXUS that has served me faithfully.

The purchase was made in haste and without any planning on my part, and I hadn't done my due diligence beforehand checking out the stats as I am usually wont to do.

Oh well.

So how does it stack up?

Significant upgrade to Timeline Maker Pro

This isn't a review, Dear Reader, as I'd already covered that a while back. Just a heads-up, in case you weren't aware, that TLM Pro have released version 3 which contains new features.

Sadly, I haven't had a lot of use for this tool the last few months but purchased the upgrade anyway since I remain eternally optimistic.

You can check out the new features here.

Upgrade cost, if you had the previous version: US$79.00

Full purchase cost: US$195.00.

Tool to add date/time (and more) to photographs

You might recall a similar post I made almost a year ago, Dear Reader, in regards to tools to add date and time to video footage.

Well, I just purchased a new point-and-shoot camera - a Sony Cyber-shot DX-WX350 - to replace my battered Canon IXUS (will review this later). It was an unplanned, impromptu, buy and I hadn't really checked out the stats prior to purchase so was a little disappointed when I got it home to find that you couldn't display the date and time of the photograph, just the date.

And you know how much that really annoys me.

Luckily, there are some tools out there to insert EXIF data onto photographs post-shooting and I pretty much was happy enough with the first one I trialled that I made the purchase.

Life of (this) PI

I've been remarkably remiss lately, Dear Reader, and for that I sincerely apologise. Things have been surprisingly hectic around Bad City and I have been otherwise engaged in a number of varied, if not time consuming, investigations.

Which is a good thing. But while there have been a few moments of good fortune, there also have been some setbacks.

Seems that you can't have one without the other. 

Anyway, some short updates...
