Transferring the MySpace Blogs!

I've been posting alot in MySpace, but my efforts have been made in a site largely used for dating popularity. Fortunately, however, I've been regularly keeping up with the postings. I plan on transferring my posts here in order to maintain a blog that documents the effort to change my job from photojournalist to visual journalist. Heck, I don't even know what to call the job title. Some call it "platypus," but I hate that term.

I'm not even doing such a thing, juggling different cameras and equipment. The gear is already available, and I have them. Funny thing, they're both made by Panasonic.

Panasonic DMC-FZ30
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30:
A small camera that can zoom a 35mmm equivalent of 35-430mm and also shoot video. I can change the still image format from 3x2 (standard 35mm film size, aka 24x36mm) 4x3 (NTSC television shape) and 16x9 (widescreen HDTV format). This is my go-anywhere camera. I use it whenever I go on vacation (packing my passport and PowerBook as well) and can shoot for publication by being ready for travel virtually anywhere in the world, if ever needed.

Panasonic AG-HVX200
Panasonic AG-HVX200:
An HDTV digital film production camera that shoots 1080i (1920x1080, interlaced). I've been known to shoot news, features and sports with this camera, which records up to 60fps (slow motion) while also recording stereo audio. Frame grabs can be taken from footage I capture and edited and toned in an image editor such as Photoshop or Aperture.

I've just figured how to transfer my posts here, while being able to preserve the dates, so I'm in business. I hope this weekend that I can deliver the process and begin posting here.

Thanks for the smile; I hope I'll be able to share plenty of information as I expand this blog!
