Bamboosa Introduces Eco-Friendly, USA-Made Stand for iPads - South Carolina company signs exclusive manufacturing and distribution agreement for the "Lap Log" - a revolutionary new iPad, Tablet, or eReader stand.

Bamboosa, a well-known U.S. manufacturer of unique consumer products, has acquired the exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute a new product designed to make the everyday use of iPads® and similar devices a more comfortable experience. The Lap Log© tablet holder is already in production at Bamboosa’s Andrews, S.C facility and will be distributed worldwide.

Lap Log Stand for iPads

The Lap Log is one of the most universal tablet holders on the market. The cylindrical shape of the stand differentiates it from similar products in that it allows the user to adjust the angle of the iPad, tablet or eReader for better viewing without changing their body position. The wooden insert accommodates most tablet and eReader devices and works equally as well in either portrait or landscape mode. Furthermore, the “bean bag” design provides for a stable platform on almost any surface.

“More that 50 million tablets and eReader devices were sold through December 2011,” said Mindy Saintsing, Partner at Bamboosa. “Now consumers are looking for a more comfortable way to use them without holding them or propping them on their laps or knees. We think this product delivers on that promise better than any other we have seen.”

Continuing Bamboosa’s commitment to providing products that are eco-friendly and made in the USA, the Lap Log is made of sustainable materials, including certified organic 100% cotton twill and naturally grown buckwheat hulls. A removable wooden insert that holds the tablet is crafted from locally-obtained, repurposed wood and is hand-sanded and stained with a natural, non-toxic finish. Bamboosa also offers a variety of interchangeable printed sleeves to accessorize your Lap Log.

Washable – If you happen to get a little dirt on your Lap Log when you're at the park, simply remove the wooden insert, dump the natural buckwheat filling into a container, and put your Lap Log into the wash.

IPEVO, Inc., a designer and maker of technology products for education and business, has announced the release of Kami Origami Folio Case. Designed for Apple's iPad 2, Kami is a slim case whose cover can be folded to convert the case into a stand. Kami is now available for purchase through IPEVO's online store (

Folio Case for Apple's iPad 2 - Kami Origami

Taking inspiration from origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, Kami's cover features creases which can be pinched and folded inward by the user. The resultant triangular support can then be used to prop up the iPad 2 for either a 20° or a 70° viewing angle, depending on orientation. The folding action requires no fasteners, Velcro, or similar, and can be accomplished in a few seconds.

When unfolded, Kami's cover along with the case serve to protect iPad 2 from everyday wear and tear and superficial damage. The light gray case is made from microfiber, which is sturdy yet soft to the touch. This microfiber, an alternative to the leather common with many iPad cases, is moisture- and stain-resistant, including resistance to fingertip acid. The material may be spot-cleaned.

At 4 millimeters thick, Kami has been characterized as "ultra-slim" and is among the slimmest and lightest iPad 2 cases on the market. The iPad 2 fits snugly into Kami, and cutouts keep the controls, camera lens, charging port and speakers exposed, such that the user does not need to remove the iPad 2 from Kami.

Special magnets in the cover of Kami cause the iPad 2 to enter Sleep Mode when the case is closed, resulting in more efficient power management and a longer average per-charge device life.

B&H Photo Video is excited to share with video enthusiasts the release of the all new JVC GY-HMQ10 professional camcorder.

JVC Professional Camcorder JVC GY-HMQ10

The GY-HMQ10 is the world's first handheld camcorder capable of capturing and recording real-time video at 4 times the resolution of full HD—3840 x 2160 images at 24p, 50p and 60p. Now one can deliver stunning cinema-quality recordings with the same ease of operation as a standard HD video camera.

Great images begin with a great optical system. The JVC GY-HMQ10 employs a razor sharp F2.8 10x zoom lens specifically designed for 4K imaging. A high speed 1/2-inch class CMOS device with 8.3 million active pixels (3840 x 2160) captures live progressive images at up to 60 frames per second. This tremendous amount of data is then processed using an array of custom JVC Falconbrid LSI chips that deBayer the image and provide a live 4K output while simultaneously compressing video for recording onto separate solid state memory cards. 4K recordings up to 2 hours in length can be made using four 32GB SDHC cards.

Operation and form factor are very similar to JVC's popular GY-HM150 with manual or auto control of focus, iris, gain, shutter, gamma level, color matrix, and white balance.

The GY-HMQ10 also functions as an exceptional HD camcorder thanks to its larger 4K sensor and superb optics. It records full HD (1920 x 1080) at 50/60p or 50/60i onto a single memory card in the AVCHD format.

Latest Canon G1X Powerful Fixed Lens G-Series Camera

B&H Photo is excited to share with photo enthusiasts the release of the latest Canon G1X Fixed Lens Camera.

The new Canon G1X replaces the PowerShot G12, and offers improvements and advanced technologies that make this camera behave like it’s much larger than it really is. The compact G1 X is armed with a new 1.5-inch High Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which is larger than a 4/3" sensor, and nearly as big as the APS-C-sized sensors found in professional DSLRs. This gives one a light-sensitive area which is nearly 6.3 times larger than the last generation of G-Series digital cameras, and delivers a quality level that’s unheard of in a compact, pocket-friendly camera.

The shooting and photo effects in the G1X stretch the photographer's creativity. A brief sampling of modes includes: Custom, Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Handheld Night Scene, Program (and all his friends: Shutter-Priority, Aperture-Priority, the aforementioned manual, etc.), Super Vivid, Nostalgic, Toy Camera Effect, Monochrome, Poster Effect, and then some.

Another interesting feature is the Movie Digest which allows one to create a video of highlights from a day of shooting. When Movie Digest is on the camera will automatically record a short video clip (up to 4 seconds) every time one shoots a still image. The entire day's worth of clips will be automatically combined into a single video. Of course, the High Dynamic Range shooting mode takes a number of shots to ensure one will get a photo that works - one underexposed, one overexposed, and one normal. All three are combined for an image that is balanced and evenly detailed with flattering shadows and highlights.

LCD TV Shipment of 40” and Larger Sizes to Improve in 2012

LCD TV Shipment Growth to Improve in 2012, Driven by 40” and Larger Sizes - Total TV Market to Rise 2% in 2012 After No Growth in 2011 Due to Soft Consumer Demand and Early Inventory Pressure, NPD DisplaySearch Reports

Consumer demand for TVs has been softer than expected in 2011, but is showing signs of improvement late in the year. However, inventory pressure plagued the industry through much of early 2011 and led to a sharp reduction in shipments to retailers. The result is that global TV unit shipments are expected to rise only 0.1% in 2011. According to the latest forecast released in the NPD DisplaySearch Advanced Quarterly Global TV Shipment and Forecast Report, growth is expected to improve in 2012, rising 2% to 254 million units.

LCD TV Shipment of 40” and Larger Sizes to Improve in 2012

“Global economic conditions have improved in 2011, but more slowly than expected, and consumers in mature TV markets like Europe face continuing uncertainty, which is leading to very cautious spending patterns,” noted Paul Gagnon, Director of North America TV Research for NPD DisplaySearch. Gagnon added, “Because price reductions are not as vigorous as a few years ago, partially due to a mature manufacturing base but also because of transitions to advanced features like LED backlights and 3D, consumers are becoming more willing to wait for peak sale periods to purchase.”

Flat panel TV continues to grow, but at a more gradual pace of 2-4% per year as the rapid transition from CRT to LCD and plasma nears an end. LCD TV continues to be the dominant technology on a unit and revenue basis, and in fact seems likely capture even more market share due to a weaker outlook for plasma TV going forward. As LCD narrows the pricing gap with plasma at many sizes, the demand for plasma has fallen; NPD DisplaySearch expects this to continue and has reduced its forecast for plasma TV.
