Best Camera For YouTube

OR every YouTube enthusiast, the new Casio EX-Z1080 is a must. This little point-and-shooter enables you to save your movies in high quality mode appropriate to share with the online video community. Casioís software application, included in the package, makes it simple to upload your video clips to YouTube in two easy steps. Visit www.pointshootupload.com for more information.

This Casio EXILIM digital camera, at 10.1 megapixels and 3X optical zoom, has a maximum ISO 6400 which makes for fine photos in dim light. Got shaky hands? No need to worry. The Anti Auto Shake helps reduce blur.

What I love about the EX-Z1080 is the menu choices that appear on the edge of the monitor screen when you power up. You can easily change the print size, flash, face detection, Anti Shake or the ISO without groping within the menu settings. I found this extremely helpful, in fact enjoyable.

This fashionable camera comes in four flavors: blue, gray, black and Ė pink! How cool is that? $249.99.

One thing I love about the PacSafe day bag is that the front flap uses Velcro closures, not the clumsy clips which I find hard to open in a jiffy. This is one mother of a bag, with a wire-reinforced shoulder strap, is slashproof and thief proof. One side has a zippered pocket for camera and phone; the other side holds a water bottle. The beauty is on the inside, where your valuables, such as passport and credit cards, are securely held. $59.85.

IonX Traveler Socks, a Magellanís exclusive, helps increase oxygen to the blood, preventing fatigue on long-haul flights. Made of nylon/Lycra, they are thin as dress socks. I wear them all the time, for business at home as well as on the road, as they prevent swelling and assists blood flow to the heart. $24.85.
