Canon XC10 – Canon’s better known for their cameras, but they’re not standing idly by as companies like Black Magic and RED steal their cadre of videographers. The new XC10 is a compact video camera that any budding film student will appreciate. The tiny camera is capable of cinema-grade Ultra HD resolution with its 1″ 12 megapixel sensor. The camera comes with a fixed zoom capable of 10x optical zoom and image stabilization is built in. The controls are a breeze with a tilting touch-screen LCD, and a couple of familiar camera dials. What makes the XC10 a nice alternative is it’s performance in low light with a 20,000 ISO, and a wide 12-stop dynamic range.

Nike Air Rift “Miami” – I am not excited about the release of Air Rift at all. This split-toe runner was supposed to give runners an advantage with this design, but the truth is that these were rocked heavy by European dudes that love their capri pants. We definitely don’t need to see this coming back, but at the same time I am nostalgic about the unique looking runner. While they didn’t look the best of the feet there was little double that the sockliner design made these ultra comfortable. The latest color to release for has been dubbed “Miami” and will arrive with a refreshing crystal mint, bright citrus, and a bit of black and orange.
