High Speed Camera For Action Shots

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...


I'm in the market for a digital camera to be used to film my kids playing sports (baseball, soccer, gymnastics, basketball, etc.). I already own a great compact digital camera which is great for stills, but is terrible for taking action shots.

How to Fix a Frozen iPod

The 4Gb versions (minis) seem to freeze more than the regular ones. You need to reset the iPod in order to get it functioning again. To reset:

Hold the menu and action (middle button) together.

This should reset the iPod.

I have heard some people mention that occasionally some albums appear to be missing after the reset due to database corruption. I have not witnessed any db corruption on mine so I cannot speak to that issue.
