Belgium, the Movie - a Short Review

MiscellaneousWritten by Ashleigh on .

Read more: Belgium, the Movie - a Short ReviewIf there is one thing that fascinates me it's flying low and slow and taking in the scenery below. 

I am lucky that I can do that in the course of my work as an aerial photographer but there are plenty of places that I haven't been to and love to see from an aerial perspective. 

Belgium is not one of those places.  I have flown over this small country many times when living in Holland but it is one thing to just fly over it in the course of your work than to be able to sit back in your lounge chair, to relax and let the whole scenery unfold before you on a high-definition screen.  It is the same difference as cooking your own meal or going to a top-notch restaurant for a gourmet dinner.
Belgium, the Movie, subtitled Enjoy Your Flight over Belgium, is such a gastronomic delight, so to speak.  It portrays Belgium as few tourists (or Belgians!) will ever experience it: flying through Brussels, following the grand boulevards in your helicopter -- not all that much higher than treetop level...

Ruvo Avox A65U1 UMPC - The Unboxing Review

Read more: Ruvo Avox A65U1 UMPC - The Unboxing Review

The vibrant world of UMPCs has many players, most of them well-known brands, others less so, but probably deserving our attention just the same.  In this category you will find the Ruvo Avox, a handsome slider UMPC.  Think of it as a Nokia N95 on steroids, but then a lot bigger!  The Avox, whilst practically unknown, has a more familiar incarnation as the Gigabyte U60.  Are they exactly the same? 

We got ourselves the first Avox in Australia, courtesy of Tegatech, the UMPC distributor par excellence down under.  They are excited about that little critter and I am beginning to see why! 

Please follow me on this unboxing and our subsequent in-depth reviews of the Ruvo Avox.

First off, the Avox is billed as the smallest full-featured PC.  In this fluid world of sub-notebooks and UMPCs that claim is probably correct but bragging rights are never long-lived and it is better to judge a device, particularly when it is this small, by its usability.  So that will be the main focus of this and the following reviews. 

Today we will be looking at the Avox from the unboxing perspective and go into the hardware details. 

A next review will highlight the software and performance aspects to be followed by a write-up of all the various accessories that can be bought separately.

Olympus EVOLT E-510 Training Video Review

Digital CamerasWritten by Martin Regtien on .

Read more: Olympus EVOLT E-510 Training Video ReviewOne of my cameras is the Olympus E-510, in some countries also known as the EVOLT E-510. It's a very capable DSLR with some unique features. We have written about one of its predecessors, the E-300 more than two years ago and I've always been enamoured by the LiveView feature which was quite revolutionary in those days.  Normally I am quite happy to read the manual but this time around I also watched a couple of training DVDs from EliteVideo.com.

Was it worth the $50 that they cost?
