While getting driven around in my @GoGreenRide car this #NYFW it dawned on me, we bloggers need to stay up on tools that enable our efficiency and work with companies that comp meals and rides. As these public relations companies, brands and fans/followers demand more real time quality work from us we need to set up systems and tools that make it easy for us to provide them the work we create. While its fun attending exclusive invite press/media events and reviewing products before general public, nothing can compare to using your creativity to produce highly favored material while using the latest products on the market. I have included some electronic products that do a great job at what they say from Nokia, Windows, Polaroid, Vivitar and Liquid Image.

Polaroid ID450- Wifi Enhanced Pocket Video Recorder
The Polaroid iD450 with built-in Wi-Fi lets you stream live video to the Web via the onboard Ustream app, upload instantly to YouTube, Facebook or other sharing sites, and even view live video on iPad, iPod or Android devices via the downloadable Apple and Android apps available from the AppStore and Android Market. Featuring full 1080p video quality, the iD450 makes it easy to capture and share live action as it happens with just a tap on the 3-inch gesture touch screen.
The Ego is @LiquidImage's first mountable camera. It shoots in 1080p at 30 frames per second and 720p at 60 frames per second for smooth high action footage with H.264 .MOV formatting. This camera also captures 12 mega pixel still and continuous photos.
Every new Ego comes with a micro USB cable, a mount, extra adhesive, and a clear faceplate. The battery is integrated into the camera and initially is halfway charged. Before the first use, its recommend charging the battery for about two hours.
To get started, the Ego is set up like their other cameras with two main buttons.
First, there is the power button. It's basic function is to power on and off the camera but it is also used for switching between modes. The LED light changes color indicating which mode you are in.
To start or stop picture or video recording, press the shutter button. This button is also used to make selections when programming the camera and to start and stop WIFI.
The LCD screen tells you what mode you are in, how many files you have recorded in each mode, battery life, WiFi status, and so on. For the full list of what the LCD screen displays, check out the product manual which comes with the Ego or go to the website.
The camera lens has a field of view of 135 degrees for widescreen recording and its focus is from about 6 inches to infinity. The shutter speed ranges from ½ to 1/8000 frames per second. It's important when handling the ego to clean the lens before shooting to avoid blurry images and videos caused by dust or fingerprints.
The microphone records in mono, is water-resistant, omni-directional and has a minus 42-decibel sensitivity.
The media door has the ports for USB, HDMI, and the Micro SDHC Card. The ego takes USB 2.0 for high-speed data transfer and a class six or higher Micro SDHC card up to 32 gigabytes in size.
At the bottom is a quarter inch accessory connection point, making the Ego easy to connect to tripod plates or any other accessory mounts.
